Worst yet, Jennifer began to stalk around him in a strange manner. With a penetrating look, she asked, “Where is the treasure room?”
“What? What treasure room?” He wondered if this was a dream.
“You know what I’m talking about.”
Mark suddenly had an urge to laugh. “Does anyone here know what she’s talking about?” he asked no one in particular. “Because I sure don’t.” He chuckled nervously.
Jennifer did not look pleased. A brief, terrible silence followed as she continued to stare at him intensely.
Mark looked away. For a moment, he was unsure if he wanted to know what she was up to.
“So that’s how it is, isn’t it?” Jennifer said finally.
Mark stared at her in confusion.
