Random story: The treasure hunter

The treasure is in the cave.

There is countless treasures, it is almost a magical cave. There is no way anyone can finished looting it. The entrances to the cave is magical too. It is said that different people will see different access to the cave. But as it has made many filthy rich, many have died in the pursuit too.

Conner has seek many successful hunters' advice before he embarked on this quest too.

There is countless bears lurking in the cave. The only way to get to the treasure, is to slain the bear.

No one, however, has ventured into cave and slain the bear from within.

The trick is to lure the bear out.

If you find a big bear, it means the treasure is big. However, if you are not ready for the bear, be prepared to walk away, it is better to keep your life and try another time than try to slay a 6 feet bear with only a Sabre.

Conner has prepare well. He has prepared as much arrows as he could, dip them into poison.

However, no matter how he tried to lure the bear out using different food, the bear did not bite.

Everyday, he felt his energy slipping away, his patience wearing thin.

It has been 2 long years. The are a few occasions when the bear popped its head out. But Conner wanted a good sight and shot, so he passed. Now, he really regretted his choice. It is especially hurting when he saw other treasure hunters already making multiple trips and having their full each time.

They always ask:" Have not got a chance?"

Conner looked at them. Some of them had war machines. He looked at his own arrows, and feel like giving up.

He went up the cave, and stand at the entrance. And left with nothing. But he didn't give up. He had another idea.

He spent the next year roaming around the mountain. Searching for possible entrances, he looked where no man go. He even looked where other hunters left. They didn't want to use their sophisticated weaponry on cubs. He didn't mind.

He finally is more confident with his craft.

He noticed while bears tend to appear out of the blue, they usually appear when there are geographic disturbances. Earthquakes, landslides, flood, etc. There has been flooding at certain areas for years, it is believed it is going to trigger landslides. He believed his time will come soon.

Looking at the stars, he noticed the Greece Star is shining very dimly. Usually a prelude to a earthquake.

He now know of a few areas where bear might appear. He is keeping a bigger radar now.

He does not know if his wait will be futile or if a bear do appear, can he actually slay it?

He wonder if he should spend more time on his weaponry instead?

He hoped to slain a bear, get his first pot of gold and used it to improve his weaponry.

He is nervous, it has been almost three years.

His family is missing him. He wonders how they are, and if they can continue without him much longer.

He gave himself one last chance, if September there is no bear, he will go home empty-handed

  3. Hi SI,

    Great analogy! What's the bear supposed to mean? Investment opportunities? Doesn't matter :) Patience, patience, and play your own game. Let other bear hunters do their own game. We'll hunt the bear in our own way.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Meanwhile, inside the cave, the bear is still waiting for that irritating bear hunter whom it had been stalking for 3 years. No matter how the bear had lured him into the cave by giving the other bear hunters treasures, he just wouldn't come in. That bear hunter is a patient one, and that makes that him all the more....alluring.

    Let's wait till September, and see if that bear hunter will lose his patience and rush in. Already, the bear is smacking his lips and salivating at the prospects of finally catching that elusive bear hunter. Hopefully, it won't have to return home bear handed.

  6. Where there is treasure, bear is always around. (could be hybernating or stalking the treasure hunter). Else treasure would long be gone, wouldn't it?
    Aim is to harvest some treasure, "leave something on the table for others", before the bear returns. Live to fight another day.
    Yeah, easier said than done. : )
