A/N: Hey guys. I hope you like this story. I love National Treasure,and, of course, Riley. Anyway, I saw the preview for the new National Treasure coming out in December, and I can't wait to see it. I got so hyped up that I got a story idea! It's basically like the movie, but I put my character in the movie. so I hope you enjoy the first chapter!
I looked out the window of the snowmobile that I was sitting in with my brother, Ian Howe, Ben Gates, and Riley Poole. We were on a treasure hunt in the Arctic looking for the ship, The Charlotte. It was supposed to have the next clue to find the treasure that Ben and his family have been looking for a very long time. Ian, his friends, (who were in the other snowmobile) and I have been helping him and Riley look for the clues.
"I was thinking of Hanson and Perry, crossing this kind of terrain with nothing more than dog-sleds and on foot. Can you imagine?" Ben asked, driving the snowmobile. Ian was sitting next to him, while I sat in the back with Riley.
"It's extraordinary." Ian told Ben, before turning to address me. "Are you okay, Caylen?"
I nodded. "Are we getting any closer?" I asked Riley, who had his laptop in his lap, tracking our location.
"Assuming Ben's theory is correct, and my tracking model's accurate, we should be getting very close. But don't go by me, I broke a shoelace this morning." Ian and Ben looked at him strangely. "It's… It's a bad omen." I smiled at him, patting his shoulder the best I could in the cramped space.
Ian looked at Ben. "Should we turn around and go home?"
Ben shook his head and replied with, "Or we could pull over and just throw him out here." I giggled as Riley looked annoyed.
"Ha-ha, okay." Riley rolled his eyes.
"Oh, Riley, you aren't missing that windowless cubical we found you in, are you?" Ben asked him, smiling.
"Oh no. Absolutely not." Riley's computer beeped, and he told Ben to stop. Ben and Ian got out of the snowmobile, followed by Riley who helped me out.
"Thanks, Riles." I thanked him, using the nickname I gave him. He blushed and said 'you're welcome.' I giggled and hugged him. His face got redder and was going to say something when Shippen and Shaw, Ian's friends pulled up beside us and got out of the snowmobile.
"How come we're stopping? I thought we were looking for a ship." Shaw said, looking confused. I smiled and looked at Riley. He smiled back at me.
"I don't see a ship," Shippen said, looking around. I stifled a laugh, turning around so they wouldn't see my grin. They apparently didn't know that the ship would be buried under all this snow.
"Oh, she's out there." Ben stood looking out with a proud smile on his face.
Shippen shook his head, annoyed. "Look, this is a waste of time. How could a ship wind all the way out here?"
"Well, I'm no expert, but it could be that the hydrothermal properties of this region produce hurricane-force ice storms that cause the ocean to freeze and then melt and then refreeze, resulting in a semisolid migrating land mass that would land a ship right around here." Riley said, walking to Ben and Ian with me following him, leaving a confused Shippen and Shaw behind.
We got out the metal detectors and started walking around with them, trying to find metal, hoping it would be the ship. After a while of looking, Ben's metal detector went off, and he quickly bent down and swipes snow off the piece of metal. He smiles as he uncovers the mouth of a cannon, with the words Boston Massacre, and Charlotte, on it. "Hello, beautiful." Ben whispers. "Two years ago, if you hadn't shown up with Caylen, hadn't believed the treasure was real, I don't know if I ever would have found Charlotte." He told Ian.
"You would've found it, I have no doubts. That's why I didn't think this was a crazy investment, as everyone says." Ian put his arm around my shoulder and shook me, smiling. I smiled back, hugging him
"I'm just glad that I'm not as crazy as everyone said, or said my dad was, or my granddad, or my great granddad. Okay, let's go." Ben said. We cleared off all the snow from the ship and Ian smiled.
"Let's go get some treasure!"
