She could still feel the box, slowly calling out to her, the scent, the magic that emanated from it, it wanted her to pick it up and keep it forever, to be admired by her, but Jamie was in the way, no matter how much she tried he was there, watching and he didn’t want her to take the box, maybe he wanted it all to himself. Robin closed her eyes for a moment, the thoughts running through her head were ridiculous, Jamie wasn’t the enemy, was he? Rationally she couldn’t believe that her thoughts even went there, but her thoughts continued to poke, continued to wonder if that was the only reason why he had pulled it away.
Maybe she had misunderstood what he wanted, but it didn’t matter, nothing matter except what was hiding behind him, for that she needed to distract him, or maybe just come back another day, yes, that could be it, coming back another day was going to solve her problem. “Let’s start searching then.” She spoke, trying to see the box that Jamie was covering, he was probably doing it on purpose. All she had to do was to pay attention to him and come back another day to get it. It should be easy, but for now, she had to search for the treasure maps.
She forgot briefly about the box as she searched through all the maps, nothing, just regional maps with coordinates, maybe there would be a travel journal that could indicate what they meant. “Hmm…I think there should be some travel journals associated with these maps.” She tried not to think of the box, maybe that wouldn’t seem suspicious. She knelt and looked under the desk, in search of some form of book. The mess in the boxes made her search for longer for what she wanted and since two people couldn’t fit under the desk, she had to do everything alone, hopefully, Jamie would continue to search through the maps.
After some long minutes, she finally found the journals. “How about we make a copy of all this? I’m sure we can get a better view at home, and certainly we won’t risk getting caught.” She suggested.
