The Cave’s Treasure [Day 162]

GOLD AND SILVER glittered brightly in the sunlight, stunning his eyes. Covering his face, he slipped inside the cave. The mysterious opening in the rock slammed shut behind him with a great creaking groan; rocky debris sprinkled his head. 

As his eyes adjusted to the gloom, he saw not only mounds of money but caskets and basins brimming with jewels: emeralds, sapphires, rubies, citrines, and opals. Strings of pearls hung over the edge and porcelain bowls filled with spices and myrrh were crammed among the gems.

He stared a moment longer and then burst out laughing.
