Hello, everyone! I’m back, with more of The Treasure! Not sure what I’m talking about? Here’s part one. And now, on with the tale!
That evening, as Melody hurried through the castle halls to her tiny room, she came upon Luke. Much to her surprise, he stopped her and pressed a small burlap sack into her tiny hand.
“There’s a Treasure inside.” he whispered. “It’s from your true Father, and it will guide you to your real home.”
“My true Father?” Melody looked quizzically at Luke. “My real home? What do you mean?”
“You’ll see.” He replied, smiling. Then, with eyes shining, he bowed and hurried away.
When Melody reached her room, she opened the sack and reached inside with a trembling hand. She pulled out an old book, bound in brown leather. “A book?” she said to herself. “How’s a book a treasure?” She stared at the book a few minutes longer, then told herself “Well, I might as well read it.” And with that, she opened the ancient tome and began to read.
As Melody read on and on into the night, she realized why Luke had called this book a treasure. The tale within was better than any Melody had heard or read. It seemed real, oh so real! She learned of the Great King, the King who was father to everyone. She read how he had worked in the lives of the people who had gone before. She learned who The Voice was-a servant of the Enemy, The Dark Lord who had tried to take the Great King’s throne. But best of all, she learned how the Great King sent his son, the Prince of Peace, to die for all people, to save them and to make a way to the true home of all who believed in him-The Kingdom of Light. When she finally reached the end of the book, it was midnight, and she was very tired. But, despite this, she knew that she wanted to know more, though she also knew that she would have to wait until morning to learn more. Before she fell asleep, she tucked The Treasure under her pillow. She slept better that night than she had in all her thirteen years.
