Not What They Had in Mind

The broad leaf of a jungle plant was all that stood between the explorers and destiny.

Their leader paused and looked over the crew before daring to venture any further.  “This is it folks.  The maps, the research, the lore; everything points to our treasure being just below this ridge.  Take it in.”

With a heave of a machete, the plant was cleared and there their target stood.

Glistening fountains of legend flowed with crystal clear water.  The band stampeded downhill.

As feet hit the water, the screaming began.

“This is full of teeth!”

“We found the Fountain of Tooth!”
