The Deal is Made

The two of them sat on the bench, an awkward silence streching between them. Shawn was looking out at Turtle Pond, while Ravyn was fiddling with the coin once again.

“I…” Shawn stuttered out, startling Ravyn. “I’ll split 50%.” He said, turning to Ravyn, waiting for an answer.

“I don’t really know that much about what your exactly trying to do here Shawn.” She said, and at his confused expression added, “As in, where you are going, how long this is going to take. You know.”

“Oh! That!” Shawn cried, his face lighting up. “Well, I really don’t know how long this is going to take. You can bet on a few months, maybe a year if we don’t have any luck”

“A year!” Ravyn cried. “How hard will this treasure hunt be?”

“Well, its all over in Australia. So thats where I’m planning to go. Maybe even other countries.” Shawn said, thinking for a moment.

“Well, I’ll go for the 50%. Plus you seem to be a bit of an idiot….” Ravyn taunted, an evil smirk crossing her face.

“Very funny…” Shawn said.
