The sun was beginning to dip below the horizon, casting long murk across the sprawling fields that girdled the small city of Willow Creek. In the fading light, three boys hastened along a narrow, fine path that led to the edge of the thick timber that framed the city. The leader of the group, a small but determined boy named Timmy, was clinging a worn chart in one hand and a flashlight in the other. His two stylish musketeers,

Jack and Sam, followed nearly before, their faces a blend of excitement and unease. Timmy was the youthful in the group, but he'd an audacious spirit that belied his age. He'd always been fascinated by dinosaurs, and when he stumbled upon an old chart in his forefather's garret, he was induced it was a treasure chart leading to a retired dinosaur egg.

The chart was yellowed with age, marked with cryptic symbols and a large X at the center of the timber. It did not take important to move Jack and Sam to join him on this adventure. As they reached the edge of the timber, the trees impended large and foreboding in the twilight. The boys dithered for a moment before plunging into the leafage. The timber was thick with brambles and vines, and the path snappily came delicate to follow. But Timmy kept the chart in front of him, using the flashlight to illuminate the way.

" Are you sure this is the right way?" Jack asked, his voice pigmented with mistrustfulness. " Positive," Timmy replied confidently." The chart shows a clearing up ahead. That is where we'll find the egg." They pushed on, the sounds of the timber growing louder around them. catcalls called out from the treetops, and the howl of leaves suggested at unseen brutes moving in the murk. The boys' excitement began to turn to apprehension,

but Timmy's determination kept them moving forward. After what felt like hours, they eventually surfaced into a small clearing. In the center of the clearing was a large, moss- covered boulder, and nestled in a concave at its base was an object that made the boys' eyes widen in amazement. There, incompletely buried in the earth, was a giant egg. It was nearly as altitudinous as Timmy and had a rough, scaled face that glinted in the flashlight's ray. " We set up it!" Timmy blatted, his voice filled with triumph. He rushed forward, dropping the chart and flashlight to examine the egg over near. Jack and Sam followed, their original dubitation

replaced by admiration. " Wow, it's huge," Sam said, running his hands over the egg's face." How are we going to carry it back?" Timmy had formerly allowed

of that." We will use the tarp I brought. We will wrap it up and carry it together. It will not be easy, but we can do it." They worked snappily, belting the egg in the tarp and securing it with ropes. As they lifted it, the egg's weight came apparent, but their determination pushed them onward. They plodded to maneuver the heavy egg through the timber, each step a laborious trouble. The trip back was indeed more delicate than the trip there, but the boys did not give up. As they neared the edge of the timber,

Timmy's excitement began to overweigh his fatigue. They were nearly there. Just a many further way and they would be out of the timber and on the path back to Willow Creek. But suddenly, a loud crack echoed through the trees, and the boys set in their tracks. " What was that?" Jack rumored, his eyes wide with fear.

Before Timmy could answer, the ground beneath them began to shake. The boys stumbled, floundering to keep their balance. The egg slipped from their grasp and tumbled to the ground, the tarp unwrapping as it rolled. To their horror, the egg began to crack open, pieces of the shell falling down to reveal commodity moving outside. Timmy's heart pounded in his casket as he watched the egg door. Within moments, a small, scaled critter surfaced,

blinking its large eyes in the light of the flashlight. The boys goggled in stupefied silence as the baby dinosaur took its first, shuddery way. " It's a dinosaur," Sam rumored, his voice filled with wonder." A real dinosaur." The baby dinosaur looked up at them, its eyes wide and curious. Timmy felt a swell of protectiveness for the bitsy critter. He knew they could not leave it then, alone and vulnerable in the timber. " We've to take it with us," Timmy said, his voice establishment." We can not leave it then." Jack and Sam jounced in agreement. Precisely, they picked up the baby dinosaur and cradled it in their arms. The critter snoozled

against them, its scales warm and unexpectedly soft. The boys moved snappily now, the baby dinosaur giving them a new sense of purpose. As they surfaced from the timber and onto the path back to Willow Creek, the sky was a deep indigo, the stars beginning to eyeblink outflow. The boys were exhausted but intoxicated. They had done it — they had set up a dinosaur egg and brought it back. But as they neared the city, a new question arose What were they going to do with a baby dinosaur? Timmy looked at his musketeers, a determined glint in his eye." We will figure it out," he said." Together." And as they walked into the night, the baby dinosaur nestled safely in their arms, the boys knew that their adventure was just beginning.
