The house was full as his relatives mourn the lost of Rupert Barrett. Wade sat beside his friend John on the couch as people walk by and gave him their condolences. His Aunt Petra came to him, standing up he gave her a hug.
"How are you feeling sweetie?" ask Aunt Petra
"I'm fine ma'am" he replied, "You?"
"Well, its going to take time, that's all I can say;" Wade hug his aunt one more time. She was the only girl out of four children, her and his father were the closes so Wade knew she will take it pretty hard. Letting go of her he spotted his Uncle Lennox.
"Uncle Lennox" he stated and Aunt Petra turn to see where he was.
"He actually showed" she said. Lennox walk over to where Wade, John, and Petra were.
"Petra, Wade, I see you also made it too John" he greeted, "always here for my nephew"
"I try sir" said John
"You wouldn't mind if I steal Wade for a minute?" Lennox asked
"Not at all I was just leaving, John would you mind joining me outside?" ask Petra
"Sure" said John, him and Petra started to leave
"Still smoking I see Petra" joke Lennox, he then turn to Wade
"Feeling alright Wade"
"Yes, its tough though"
Uncle Lennox started to look around, he then took hold of Wade's arm
"I want to give you something but not here," they then began to walk making their way to a more secluded area.
"What is it that you wanted to give to me?" ask Wade as they were in his father's office, his uncle then handed him a book. It was a journal where his father would record his journeys when he was traveling.
"Your father wanted me to give you this"
"He wanted me to give it to you in private, there is something in there that he only wants you know about"
"What is it?" Wade asked observing the journal,
"He didn't tell me" Lennox inform him; Wade then close the journal
"Thank you uncle"
"Remember, only you look at it" Lennox then began to leave
"Where are you going?"
"I only came here to give you the journal that's it" his uncle turn to him, "I never liked funerals anyways"
His Uncle then walk out the door, Wade went back to looking at the journal, "Wonder why dad wanted me to have this"
Wade went outside to find John, he was by himself just playing on his phone.
"Aunt Petra left?" Wade asked him
""Yep like five minutes ago" Wade stood beside him resting on the fence
"Lennox just left too"
"Yeah, thanks for being here John"
"No prob, still on for tomorrow?"
"I hate parties but yeah"
"Better be because you're my date" John then smiled
"Don't worry I'll be there"
Later that night
Wade sat in his bed reading his father's journal, he look at everything and still couldn't find what his father wanted him to know about.
"Unless he wanted me to know how his trips were I still didn't find anything"
Wade was about to close the book until he saw something odd. In back of the book, it seems there were something folded behind the covering. Wade then look for something sharp and tore the covering on the back of the book off, there he found a note.
To My Dear Son,
Since my time is almost up, I wanted to give you this. I want you to keep my journal of my recordings about my travels, you would need it. In the journal there is a map of Venezuela where you would find the hidden treasure. The Treasure that belongs to the Barrett's family; since The American Revolutionary War our family has been storing up a treasure in Venezuela, each generation after another. It all started with Edmund Charlton Barrett, a man who lost his wife during the war. His wife Matilda Parker was a wealthy woman so Edmund was left with all the money after her death but he didn't want for he would rather have his wife than any riches so he took the money and buried it. He left a note to his brother talking about the treasure and told him he could have it, but his brother didn't take it. Instead he told his son about it and instead of taking the treasure he would add to it, after he did the son did too and then the grandson and so forth. Now I write to you and telling you son that I want you to have the treasure. I know things would be tough on you, and now that you are the only Barrett that knows about the treasure I want you to have it. I trust you my son and I hope that the treasure would help you with your dreams. I love you and be careful.
Wade folded the note back up,
"A treasure, an actual treasure" gasped Wade.
Randy put away his cigarette as he spotted Ted Dibiase and Cody Rhodes coming his way.
"What took you so long?" he ask them
"Caught up at work now lets get down to business, we heard that Rupert Barrett has died" said Cody
"Do you think his son knows about the treasure?" ask Randy
"No doubt, his son is his pride and joy, he would tell him where its at" said Ted
"So what's the plan?"
"The plan is that you Randy will introduce yourself to Barrett's son, tell him about his and your grandfathers expedition together, do anything to make him trust you enough to help him find the treasure" Cody told him; Cody then handed him a photo
"Here is what he looks like," Randy look at it
"Good looking, alright boys I'll do it but understand this, I get a cut of the treasure, got it"
"What ever you say Randy" said Ted
"You might even get the most" said Cody
"Then we have ourselves a deal" agreed Randy.
"A treasure?" ask John when Wade told him
"Yes, I know that Uncle Lennox said not to tell anyone but you are the only person that I can trust" Wade told him. He and John were at a banquet in honor of John's boss.
"So what are you going to do if you find it?" John ask Wade.
"Well my mom has a school in Africa I would start there"
"Reasonable" said John, he then look and started to have a little frown, "he's here"
Wade then turn around to see what he look like
"I know an Orton, a Bob Orton, he went on one of my dad trips"
"Well that's his son" said John, he then saw Randy making his way over to him, "and here he comes"
"John, so glad that you made it" greeted Randy as he shook John's hand, he then turn to Wade
"And who is this beauty?" he asked as he kiss Wade's hand, John growled
"Randy this is Wade, Wade this is Randy" John introduced
"Wade, your name sound familiar, do you know a man name Rupert?"
"Yes, that's my father" Wade responded
"He is? Well now I see where you got your looks from, he was a handsome man, how is he?"
"He passed away sadly"
"Oh I'm so sorry" said Randy with guilt written on his face
"Here let us toast" said Randy, he then got them three glasses of wine and handed Wade and John theirs
"To Rupert, a brave, caring man" and then they drank
"You know the helicopter that my father has was given to him by your father; my dad told me that they travel around in it all the time" Randy told Wade.
"Wow, does your dad still fly in it?"
"Not so much but I do, pilot you see"
"Yep, maybe on day I can take you on a ride"
"That would be nice"
"Probably after I get back from Venezuela" said Randy
"Venezuela, you're going to Venezuela?" asked John
Wade look at John who look back at him
"Can you excuse us" said Wade as him and John left
"No" said John
"Why not, he's going to Venezuela this is perfect, when are we going to have another opportunity"
"I don't trust him and why is he going to Venezuela anyways" said John
"Who knows, look we don't have to tell him we can just ask him to take us along" Wade pleaded.
John thought about, "okay," he agreed. Wade then hug him
"But we don't tell him a thing, alright" warned John
"Not a thing" said Wade and they went back to their table where Randy was still sitting
"Randy, do you mind if we ask you for a favor" said Wade
"What is it doll"
"John and I wanted to know if we could go with you to Venezuela" Wade told him.
"Sure why not and may I ask why do you need to go"
"We never been" spoke John
"Okay, I'm planning on leaving tomorrow around nine in the morning, sounds good?"
"Yes" answered Wade. Randy smiled, he was already getting close to taking that treasure.
