AN: Sorry this has been a long time coming!! Enjoy!!
"So if this guy who has my sister isn't Rene Belloq because obviously he died at the hands of God, then who the hell has her?" Scott asked, after listening to his parents retell what happened when they dealt with Belloq and the Ark of the Covenant.
"Belloq's son," Indy said. "Has it be him."
"He has a son?" Marion asked a bit confused.
Indy nodded. "He was a ladies man back in his day."
"Like someone else I know," Marion said under her breath. Scott snickered as Indy threw her a nasty look. "Anyways, does Alex know that Sara is missing?"
Scott shook his head no. "I sent him a telegram, but I haven't gotten a response back. But I do know that he was supposed to meet Sara and I in London when she came to visit because he was going to be home to see his parents as well."
"I heard my name," a new voice said entering the small apartment.
The trio looked up to see a young man standing in the doorway, clenching a letter in his hand. Indy arched an eyebrow as he took the young man in. he looked vaguely familiar to him.
"Alex!" Marion happily said, walking up to the young man and greeting him with a hug. He graciously hugged her back.
"I left Peru as soon as I got Scott's telegram," Alex said. "And it was the same day I got this from Sara."
Marion took the letter from Alex's hands and opened it. inside was another copy of the Constantine cipher. Sara must had sent it to more then one person for safe keeping.
"My mother also said that the Palestine authorities have enlisted the aid of a Jacques Belloq for a mysterious dig in the Holy Land. She said that it began a few years ago and has been slow going, but I happened to catch the last part when Scott mentioned the name Belloq."
"Didn't your parents ever teach you it's not nice to listen to other people's conversations?" Indy asked.
"When it comes to my girlfriend's life sir, it doesn't matter to me."
Indy liked this kid already. He had spunk.
The door to the dungeon slowly opened as the old man looked up in the darkness. A young woman quickly entered then shut the door once again. Only a single candle lit the darkness of the room.
"who are you?" he asked looking the girl over. She wore a head wrap and servants clothes. "I've never seen you before."
"It's me, Sara," she quickly said moving towards him.
"My child, what are you doing back down here?"
"I…I was told to seek you out. And I have to ask you something," she said in a hushed whisper.
He motioned for her to sit down on his bed.
"what is it my dear?" he asked.
"what do you know about the Constantine cipher?"
The old man took a deep breath as he began to tell Sara all he knew about the ancient cipher – from the stories of Constantine himself and his mother Helen to the stories of what treasures were hidden. It was all stuff that she knew before.
"Anything else?" she frantically asked, knowing that her life depended on this. The old man smiled and nodded. He stood up, moved to the edge of his tattered mattress, and lifted it up. Underneath was a tattered journal.
"This will help you finish your key," the old man said handing it to her. "Keep it safe."
"You knew all along?" she asked confused as she took it from him.
he nodded in the candlelight. "Who else besides the daughter of Henry Jones, Jr. and granddaughter of Abner Ravenwood would be able to decipher something like the Constantine cipher?"
she sat there dumbfounded for a moment. "Who are you?"
"All in good time my child," he said taking off a ring. "but give this to your mother when you are reunited with her. she will know all about it. but go now before you are caught."
"Thank you," she said softly kissing his cheek before slipping back out of the dungeon and making her way back to her room.
Abner Ravenwood sat back and took one last breath. "Your welcome my dear Sara."
