After the Adventure
By Christopher Munroe
…I’d switched the idol for a forgery. So by the time Heinrich’s crew found the temple and deactivated its booby-traps, I’d long since absconded with the treasure.
That’s where my troubles began.
I don’t know the first thing about fencing ancient artifacts, and I’d financed the expedition on money borrowed from people who wouldn’t accept “…once I find a buyer” in lieu of cash.
And to make matters worse, Heinrich will definitely figure out that I have the thing eventually.
He’s not stupid.
I expect this isn’t over...
…also, there’s a horrible curse, but that’s a story for another day.
