Chapter Twelve – Daylight Savings

"So you show up at your father's door and say you're in trouble and the first thing he assumes is that me and or your sister is pregnant." Abigail said from her dressing room next to Ben's.

"Is there a question in there?" Ben asked as he started to get redressed into normal clothing.

"I think there's an interesting story in there." Abigail replied with a slightly amused look.

Ben sighed but gave her a light smile. "Well, my father thinks both me and my sister have been a little too cavalier in our personal lives."

"I see." Was all Abigail said as she resumed getting dressed.

"Let me ask you something. Have you ever told someone not a relative 'I love you'?" he said.

"Yes." Abigail said leaning over the side of her dressing room with a small smile on her face.

"More than one someone?" Ben asked leaning over his own dressing room to look at her.

"Yes." Abigail replied going back to getting dressed.

"Oh. Well, then my father would say you've been a little too cavalier in your personal life, too." Ben said with a soft chuckle going back to getting dressed as well.

"So you get your sense of absolute certainty from him, do you?"

"Well, I'm sure I don't know what you mean."

"Well, you're certain the treasure is real, despite what anyone else thinks."

"No, but I hope it's real. I mean, I've dreamt it's real since my grandfather told me about it. But I want to hold it. I feel like I'm so close, I can taste it. But I just... I just want to know it's not just something in my head or in my heart." Ben said putting on his new jacket and opening the dressing room door.

"People don't really talk that way, you know." Abigail said leaning on her now opened dressing room door with a smile.

"I know. But they think that way." Ben said with a small smile.

Abigail just smiled staring at him for a few moments before saying. "Come lets go and find Riley and your sister." and headed towards the cash register.

Riley and Alyssa walked up the stairs of the store heading towards Ben and Abigail who were paying for the clothes at the register.

"Hey losers, took you long enough." Alyssa greeted them with a smile.

Ben gave his sister a look deciding to ignore her comment before turning to Riley. "Did you get it? Riley?"

A grin spread across Riley's face. "Oh, I got it alright. 'The vision to see the treasured past comes as the timely shadow crosses in front of the house of Pass and Stow.' Now, "Pass and Stow", of course, referring to..." Riley said

"The Liberty Bell." The other three all said at the same time.

Riley sighed and let the smile fall from his face. "Why do you have to do that?" he grumbled.

"Well, John Pass and John Stow cast the bell." Abigail said as if it was common knowledge.

"Ok… Well, then, what does the rest of this mean?" Riley said looking down at the newspaper in his hand.

"Oh Ben's knows he's got that pensive thinking look on his face." Alyssa said with a smirk but Ben ignored her again making it clear that Alyssa had been correct with her statement.

"Wait...'The vision to see the treasured Past' must refer to a way to read the map." Ben said.

"Well, I thought the cipher was the map." Riley said.

"No, the cipher was a way to find the way to read the map." Ben replied

"And the way to read the map can be found where the 'timely shadow' crosses in front of the Liberty Bell." Abigail said a slow smile appearing on her face and she started to follow Ben's train of thought.

"Crosses in front of the "house" of the Liberty Bell. Independence Hall." Ben said looking at Abigail.

"Right, so "timely shadow" it's a specific time." Abigail finished.

Alyssa looked at Ben and Abigail while shaking her head then turned to Riley. "It's at times like these when the history buffs of world power together and speak as if they have one mind makes me feel so tiny and well stupid." She said to her boyfriend.

"Right there with ya." Riley said with a sigh and slightly confused look waiting for a chance to jump into the conversation and it soon came. "Uh what time?" he asked Ben and Abigail who had completely ignore the two of them.

"What time? What time?" Ben asked himself and thought about it for a moment before a smile appeared on his face. "Wait a minute, wait. You're gonna love this." He said and walked back over to the cashier. "Excuse me, can I see one of those hundred-dollar bills I paid you with?" he asked her.

The woman gave him a strange look and shook her head back and forth, "No."

Ben sighed slightly then looked at his wrist and started to take off his watch. "Oh. Well uh here, I have this diver's watch. It's called a Submariner. I dive with it. It's actually quite valuable. You can use it as collateral." He said handing it to the woman who continued to look at him strangely but took it mumbling whatever and handed him a hundred dollar bill then inspected the watch with interest.

"Thank you." Ben said and turned towards the other three. "On the back of a hundred-dollar bill is an etching of Independence Hall based on a painting done in the 1780s, The artist was actually a friend of Benjamin Franklin's. It's wonderful." Ben started to rant. "Hold this." He said starting to hand Abigail the case that held the declaration but stopped and looked at her with a serious look.

"I'm not going anywhere." She said with a smile and took the case.

Ben nodded and continued, "Now, I think that if we look at this clock tower..." he picked up a water bottle and holding it eye level with the hundred dollar bill. Looking through the water bottle at the hundred dollar bill using the water bottle as a magnify glass. "...we may find the specific time."

"What do you see?" Alyssa asked.

"2:22" Ben stated.

"What time is it now?" Abigail asked.

The cashier looked at Ben's watch that she was holding. "Almost three."

"We missed it." Alyssa said with a sigh.

"No, we didn't." Riley said while playing with one of the items on the cash register. "We didn't miss it because..." he started and looked up seeing Ben, Abigail and Alyssa all looked at Riley expectantly. A cheeky grin appeared on his face as realization dawned upon him. "You don't know this? I-I know something about history that you don't know." He said happily.

"I'd be very excited to learn about it, Riley." Ben said somewhat impatiently.

"Well, hold on one second, let me just...let me just take in this moment. This is... this is cool. Is this how you feel all the time? Because, you know... Except for now, of course." Riley said a grin still on his face.

"Riley!" Abigail and Alyssa exclaimed.

"All right calm down. What I know is that daylight savings wasn't established until World War I. If it's 3 pm now, Ok, that means in 1776 it would be 2 pm."

Ben smiled and clapped Riley on the shoulder then handed the hundred dollar bill back to the cashier and got his watch. "Let's roll." Alyssa said

"Riley, you're a genius." Ben said to his best friend with a smile.

Riley looked bashful for a moment but clearly enjoyed the comment. "Yeah." He said as they all headed towards the exit of the store.

"Do you actually know who the first person to suggest daylight savings?" he asked as they all were walking.

"Benjamin Franklin." Alyssa, Ben, and Abigail all said and Riley made a face while stomping his foot slight with and sighed as they exited the store heading towards independence hall.
