Dakota held up his hands. "No! It's booby trapped!" but it was too late for the first two guards, whose heads left their bodies by way of a giant machete.

Ruby looked at Dakota. "Well that was ironic," she said.

Dakota rolled his eyes, then turned his attention back to Moses and the remaining machete carrying goons. "We got lucky this time. The next trap could send this own place down."

Moses placed his hand on his cheek. "Well you got over there easy enough. I'm sure my men can do the same." He looked at the remaining guards and shooed them forward . "Go ahead, seize them, but be careful this time."

Before the men could advance a swirl of leaves and twigs blocked their path. Just outside the chamber opening an eerie whistle filled the air. An ugly little man with a long grey beard and big red hat appeared in front of  Moses.

"You seek the treasure of the Peridot Princess?" the little man asked Moses in a baritone that didn't match his stature.

"It's the Tata Duende," Ruby whispered. "He's the one with the riddle. We've got to answer the riddle first or he'll give it to Moses. Whatever you do don't show him your thumbs."

"What?" Dakota shook his head, still eyeing Moses and the little man.

"Trust me," Ruby hissed in his ear.

"We are," Dakota called out before Moses could answer. It was obvious Moses didn't know what to think of the little man so Dakota continued. "My friend and I are here for the Peridot Princess, and he is not my friend."

Tata Duende winked at Moses. "I'll be right back. But don't go anywhere. You may have your treasure yet."

Before Moses could move, roots shot up from the ground and wrapped around his ankles. The two goons dropped their machetes and took off, ignoring Moses' pleas of help.

Ruby screamed as Tata Duende appeared in front of them within a blink. "You should only be scared if you can't answer the riddle," said Tata Duende.

"You just startled me," said Ruby. "What is your riddle?"

"I never was, am always to be. No one ever saw me, nor ever will. And yet I am the confidence of all, To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball," answered Tata Duende.

"That's not a riddle, that's a poem," said Dakota.

"Does this mean you cannot answer?" asked Tata Duende. "It would not be wise to not even try. I don't believe you would like the outcome." His eerie laugh filled the chamber, shaking the walls.
As the laughter faded, he stared at Dakota. "Your answer or your death."

Native American Animal Symbol

 Native American Animal Symbol
Snake: Oct 23 – Nov 22
Most shamans are born under this Native American animal symbol. The Snake is a natural in all matters of spirit. Easily attuned to the ethereal realm the Snake makes an excellent spiritual leader. Also respected for his/her healing capacities, the Snake also excels in medical professions. The Snake's preoccupation with matters intangible often lead others to view them as mysterious, and sometimes frightening. True, the Snake can be secretive, and a bit dark – he/she is also quite sensitive, and caring. In a supportive relationship the cool Snake can be passionate, inspiring, humorous, and helpful. Left to his/her own devices, the Snake can be despondent, violent, and prone to abnormal mood swings.

Dakota Jones and the Peridot Princess ~ Part 6

Dakota and Ruby tumbled into a huge sand pile, each rolling to break their falls. Dakota was first to his feet, "What'd you do that for?"

"Well a turtle always has its home with him, so I took page from your book and went with my gut." Ruby brushed her hair out of her face.

"Next time a little warning before going with your gut, ok?" Dakota looked around. "Well, we're inside."

"We're more than inside," said Ruby. "Dakota look."

Dakota turned to see a vast treasure of gold and jewels, there in the middle stood a statue of a Mayan goddess. A gold crown sat on her head filled with diamonds and pearls, while sapphire eyes stared at the explorers. There around her neck hung the Peridot Princess.

Ruby advanced.

"Be careful," Dakota grabbed her shoulder, pulling her back. "There's trip wire everywhere. One wrong turn and we're toast."

Dakota stepped over the wire and scanned the floor for more, taking careful steps as he advanced toward the statue. Ruby followed him, eyeing the treasures surrounding her. Safely in front of the statue, she read the markings. "Says something about a riddle; answer the riddle from the man with backwards feet and be rewarded." She gasped and whispered. "The Tata Duende."

"Ruby, it's a myth... " Dakota stopped as something large jumped into the hole they had fallen through. Ruby leaned into Dakota as he backed into the statue trapped.

A nasally laugh filled the air.

Dakota sighed. "I thought we left you at the tree, Moses."

"Luckily me and a couple of friends were able to jump through with you." He motioned toward his four machete armed guards and smiled. "Seize them!"

Before Ruby could reach out and grab Dakota, he leapt onto the third step. A few pebbles fell on the second step, but Dakota stayed put. "Well, I guess now we know to take every third step, sweetheart."

Dakota winked and held out his hand to Ruby who shook her head. "How you've lived this long I'll never know. You got lucky."

"No, I just didn't over think it. The riddle seemed pretty clear to me. Sometimes it just is what it is, sweetheart." Dakota lifted his leg high over the next two steps, then reached out for Ruby. "You should try it sometime."

"I'd rather over think than die. And quit calling me 'sweetheart' you know I've never liked being called that, especially from you."

Dakota smirked. "Sure thing, cupcake."

Ruby rolled her eyes as the two climbed carefully up the pyramid, soon coming to the top level. Dakota wiped the sweat off his brow as Ruby studied the next set of markings around the door that lead into the pyramid.

"Anything?" Dakota asked.

Ruby shook her head. "It's all gibberish. I've never seen the markings arranged like this before. It's almost as if it keep repeating "turtle" over and over."

Dakota walked around the corner. "Ruby, come take a look at this."

Ruby joined Dakota. "Did you find something?"

"What does it say?" he asked, pointing to the symbols arranged in a circle.

"It's more gibberish. Here are the symbols for flora, fauna, then the symbol for home. Unless..." Ruby pushed hard on the symbol for home, then screamed as they fell into darkness.

Halloween Fun

This poem was written when I was in the 5th grade with much help from my dad. Thank you dad for introduction me to the wonderful world of rhyme. 

 My Pumpkin 
By Cathy Collar

I have a little pumpkin.
He's sweet as pumpkin pie.
I love him very much,
And here's the reason why.


For when Halloween comes,
A Jack-O-Lantern he'll be.
I'll put him in my window,
For everyone to see.
