Chapter-1: River of Nessie
“Please, dad pleeeeeease”. Can I go to the
Loch Ness River? Asked Daniel.
“No, you’re not going there all alone.”
I am not going alone. I‘m taking my bravest
friends Edward and Robin.
For what reason you want to go there? Asked
Daniel’s father Mr. Benson.
“I want to see the sea monsters”, said Daniel.
I will not let my son die in the monsters
stomach said Mr. Benson.
Alright, as you say.
Daniel makes a plan. The plan was Daniel will
act like he is going to bed but he will call up
Edward & Robin so they would wait with a big
trampoline in the back of the house or if they
make mistake by taking the trampoline in
front of their house, Dad will catch them.
Daniel will jump from the terrace and fall on
the trampoline. So that he could not get hurt
At the late night, the bravest boys Edward
and Robin came up. Daniel was trying to jump
but he stepped back again. Edward said,
“Don’t be scared Dan! We have done it
Yeah sure, it is easier than you thought, said
Keep praying or I shall pass my deadline.
Alright, we shall pray for you, but don’t mess
Okay. Hmmm.., yahoo! This is magnificent!
Shut up! Do you want your father to catch us,
huh? Answer me.
Well, sorry for that. Now scram! They waited
and waited for whole night along with their
They passed Atlantic Ocean and then Amazon
jungle. Another day left to reach the Loch
Next day, the Loch Ness River was more 90
kilometers to reach. It is about 1 hour to
reach that river, said Daniel.
Yes, but you have to hold your breath till we
reach Loch ness river, said Edward.
Of course! My dream will not come alive if I
do not hold my breath and lose my
That’s the spirit of it! Mmm.. wait a second,
you dreamt this adventure! How could you
trick us? Asked Edward loudly.
Well..ummm, I didn’t trick you. It was a dream
and of course the Loch Ness River and the
monster is real, said Daniel.
How could it be? It was your dream and you’re
now saying that it was real! Said Edward.
Yeah, it is real and I saw the island also in the
Lie! All this is a LIE! Shouted Robin.
What are you talking about? It’s not a lie
anyway. I shall give you the proof right on
when we shall reach the island and find a
newspaper store, said Daniel.
Heh! Heh! Hah hah hah hah!
How can you find it, it’s just one lonely island,
Let’s just see who wins. I shall give you five
bucks if you win, deal?
It’s a deal. And I shall give you twenty bucks
if your unnecessary speech comes true, said
Chapter: 2: Another Way
Mr. Benson almost was having a heart attack
when he saw Daniel getting up in a Limo with
his friends from the window. The police were
all over the city. After Mr. Benson’s scream,
he was taken into a hospital.
When he woke up in the third day he heard
that Daniel Benson is missing. He ate some
strawberries after waking up. The police also
saw their Limo going towards the ocean docks.
But the speed of the car was even speedier
than a racing car and the boat was waiting
there for them was even faster than the car.
They also launched helicopters to follow their
boat where it goes but somehow the
helicopter engine got destroyed because the
boat that were shooting their boat toppled
over by a wave and hit their helicopter in the
engine. There were a lot of pieces floating
around the river after the disaster.
So, they were free again.
Chapter-3: Gang in the
The island isn’t a lonely island. Edward saw it
after reaching Loch Ness; they saw some
signs like a rose burning in fire.
They were actually scared but they didn’t
able to recognize the meaning of Rivertos. So
they followed the signs on the tree. After
they saw a door which was also sketched with
the same sign as like the trees.
“Who would live in this manor (mansion)?” said
Let’s see what we can find inside. Maybe it’s
It’s like the same as the haunted manor! Said
Of course not. We have no time to lose.
Right, but hey, wait where is Henry? Our boat
sailor, said Daniel.
Don’t worry Daniel; he’s somewhere drinking
his whiskey somewhere near.
Now get in you cowards! Said Edward.
There were a bunch of roses and many large
boxes that were filled with fiery hot heaters.
They walked more close to hall room and they
saw that the hall room was decorated with
fruits. Daniel and Robin were freaked out but
Edward told them not to be scared of
anything and started to give them a
bombastic speech about what would they do if
Robin was James Bond and Daniel would be
They were totally bored anyway, so they
walked along together.
But when they came down to the basement
they saw someone was peeping at them
through the back window.
Hah! Gotcha! Whoever you are show us up,
But when they tried to see it, went away.
Then they saw a large monkey running
towards the trees. They were very hungry as
they looked like so, Edward gave their foods
away to the monkeys.
So, Daniel and Robin were starving for food.
But Edward was saying that if you guys are
fond of foods so why do not you go back to a
blow out party so that you can eat whatever
When they were going upstairs somebody
blocked their way by aimed weapons.
Someone covered their faces with
They had lost their senses by the time those
When they woke up, they saw they were in a
vehicle like a bus or something like that. The
vehicle was going through a place like
The place was dark enough for a little light.
Edward felt something that made him timid
enough. His mind was playing tricks with him.
He heard something violent was happening
somewhere. Edward leaned his head forward
to see what was happening. Then the thing he
saw was even worse than he thought. He saw
that some people were holding some shotguns
with each of them ray pointed at Henry, their
Edward pulled his head back for not to see
what happens next. But right at that second
something got Edward’s attention, some sound
of opening of the door.
He tried to wake Robin and Daniel up, but it
was pretty much worthless. They were fully
chloroformed. They only spoke one or two
words after they woke up. Edward was lucky
because he sneezed the chloroform out
before it could affect him.
The sound of the door got louder in Edward’s
ears, but not the people of those gangs or
something like that. He saw few SWAT men
entering from somewhere. First he tried to
scream but one thing stopped him. It was
Edward’s uncle Sgt. Smith. He told Edward in
stealth for not getting caught by those
Those people were still disalerted. They
didn’t even notice a single whisper between
Sgt. Smith and Edward. He told Edward to
take the knife from his pocket so that they
could cut the ropes those were linked
together with the hands.
Edward wasn’t able to cut it himself. So, he
said “Uncle, I can’t do it alone, please try to
brain-storm a clever idea” by whispering.
Sgt. Smith said “wait a second, I’ve got one.
But you gotta be ninja silent”.
Alright, said Edward. A minute later he saw
his uncle getting on the vehicle with a ton of
soldiers with some dangerous weapons. Those
people were asking Henry about their personal
subjects. Sgt. Smith told everyone to kill
those people. After that it was a complete
The only sound Edward could hear was only
BANG & BANG.
One of them shot Henry with his weapon. Sgt.
Smith knifed that man to cause more pain.
They captured the rest of them and took
them outside by giving them an oxygen
cylinder and a gas mask plugged by a life-
Edward asked his uncle if they are in a
spaceship or something.
He replied to Edward, “You’ll see when you get
He carried Henry out of that thing. A soldier
told Edward to put his suit on. Smith shouted
to get out of the thing. The soldier grabbed
Robin and Daniel and carried them out of
Edward jumped with his life-jacket out side
and he saw that the thing they were on was
only a submarine.
He saw that it was gonna blow in any second.
So he swam towards a boat which was floating
over the water. It started to blow off at the
second he reached the boat.
He saw that Daniel’s dad was on the boat also.
And he was in a pretty much bad shape &
The SWAT team drove them to their houses.
Mr. and Mrs. Benson took Daniel to the
hospital. The parents of Robin Mr. and Mrs.
Warren took him, too.
Sgt. Smith took Edward to his house. His
parents Mr. Perron and Mrs Perron didn’t
speak anything. They told Edward to take a
shower and explain them everything. Edward
explained them about the journey. His
parents were mad at him. But Sgt. Smith told
them what brave things they have done and
how they helped them to capture the Rivertos
Sgt. Smith said, “Do you know something
about the gang?
“Nope! Said Edward.
Well, the gang was of the man whom you
hated in your life.
“Who is it?” asked Edward.
It was Zhukov!
What the! Ah, what’s he is up to now?
I don’t know – but he’s up to something
massive. Replied Sgt. Smith.
Edward covered himself with a blanket. It
was cold winter. He went to bed early and
woke up in the next afternoon. He looked at
his clock and believe it or not it was 9:00. I
don’t really think I’d slept that long if I was
Edward. But when I came back from a
mysterious journey anytime I’d take at least
9 or 12 hours for a nap.
He went to ask his parents. But no one was
there. He thought about searching the house
for them but it was worthless.
He had been reading a book from his birth. It
has been a big little book named “How to
back-fire your parents by their own pranks.”
The name of it might be a little queasy, but
that helped Edward in everything he wanted
to know about their parent’s pranks.
He read the chapter which could tell you the
thing when son couldn’t find any relative or
parents. It showed Edward that “if you ever
can’t find any of your relatives or parents,
they would always leave you a letter which
would be a little unusual.
But if you read them it would be like the thing
you’ll be looking for:
We took off for the week for exploring new places like Hawaai or the
beach. Oh, so don’t forget to eat vegetables from the fridge. They are
kept right on the front for you.
He looked all over the house for the letter.
Finally he found it at the front door. It was
the same kind of letter like that in the book.
After his parents were gone, he looked all
over for the phone which they would always
leave. He found it and called his parents up.
But no one answered neither his mom nor his
Edward had no idea what was going on so he
took off for Daniel and Robin to the hospital.
As he arrived at the hospital, he went on his
way to their cabins.
He found Daniel’s cabin and he saw few
doctors were taking care of him. He asked
the doctors whether he is good or still
The doctors said that he needs some time to
recover and that it will happen if no one
Edward said, ok can I talk to his parents?
Yes, said the doctor.
He called up Mrs and Mr Benson upstairs and
told them to go and talk in the waiting room.
Edward and Daniel’s parents talked for an
hour but that’s when they saw Daniel back on
The doctors said he had recovered from the
medicine of chloroform and they could take
But then Daniel said he wants to go back to
their journey to the Loch Ness River.
His parents didn’t seem too angered about
what he said. But they said they would be
happy if he cancels this whole Loch Ness idea
from his mind.
But Daniel was on the opposite angle from his
mom. Daniel told his parents to clear the
seats for their personal meeting.
Then he talked for a while with Edward.
Daniel said that it’s no big deal for him to
know that the gang was of Zhukov.
Edward seemed pretty surprised but in the
next moment he wasn’t, because of Daniel told
him that he wanted also to go to that river
because of the treasure which was hidden
somewhere near the river.
Edward was very excited about ‘Treasures”
from his childhood. And he also had seen
three of the “Pirates of the Caribbean”
movies. So, it is not hard for Edward to use
the tricks Jhonny Depp uses in the movie.
Daniel talked with Edward for some time and
left. Edward was planning to leave but he
remembered to see Robin and Henry.
It was very late in the midnight. The doctors
were trying to wake Robin up. But sadly,
Henry has passed away while he was in the
Daniel was at his home taking phone call visits
from their relatives. Some of them came to
his home to see Daniel. There was his Aunt
April, Uncle Bob, his cousin Bella from Italy,
John, Tomas from Germany, grandma,
grandpa, great uncle Steve and his nephew
George who’s in Kindergarten.
Aunt April has been going to the fashion
shows lately. Because she thinks she is
beautiful than rose. But she had lost more
than twenty times of the show. So that means
she is only dreaming those things.
Uncle Bob is not much good at anything but he
is a master when it comes to mathematics.
And he had helped Daniel in his home-works a
thousand times. So, Uncle Bob is kind of a
favorite for Daniel.
Bella is the eldest cousin of Daniel and she
always teases Daniel and the other kids of his
age. John is a kid younger than Daniel by
about two years. He is too smart and it is very
rare to find a boy like him. He always tries to
stop the crimes which are happening in his
Tomas is a grown up boy and he is ten percent
dangerous than Bella. Daniel’s grandma is very
mean but she has changed it and became very
His grandpa is always very generous. He never
quitted any of his office days and he finished
all the work of tomorrow in one night. And
he’s been getting extra holidays for that.
What could I say about Daniel’s great uncle
Steve? He is just a retired policeman and has
very less money to run their family. George is
the protector of Bella and Tomas. Tomas and
Bella have been also protecting George though
he totally deserves it. Other people of
Daniel’s family. There are many many many
people whom I don’t even know.
Chapter-5: Not Givin up
When Edward got back from the hospital it
was almost 5:00 in the morning. He was very
tired so he closed the curtains and went to
sleep. It was 6:00 when he heard their calling
bell ringing. He ran downstairs and opened it
up. A man was standing in the door covered by
He said he was here to take their group to
the Loch Ness River. He didn’t understand
what he was talking about but he surely did
know that it was Zhukov! And surely it was!
Edward said to Zhukov that I was wrong
about you; I thought you were a bad man, a
cruel man, a stealer, a killer. But you are more
and more opposite than what I thought.
Yes, cried Zhukov, that SWAT team
destroyed my wishes. Now you are the one
who can show me that river because you’ve
been there and find the treasure together.
I’ll keep a bit of treasures and you keep the
rest of the treasures. Okay then, when shall
