7. Connection to Treasure Island
As Eric cleaned the farmhouse, he kept on looking at things that reminded him of his grandparents. Just when he was in the middle of cleaning, he found something about the two of them. His grandfather had been a sailor and, once, he was even chased by pirates!
He remembered that his grandparents often read Treasure Island to him. That's why he always associated these two very important people in his life with treasure. So, in the back of mind, he was convinced that his grandparents must have hidden a few things in the farmhouse.
8. And The Searching Begins
Eric stopped and, without wasting any time, he started to look for anything that his grandparents might have left in the farmhouse. Given that he had no clue about the whereabouts of any potential treasure, he started by searching one of their closets.
He looked inside one of the closets and found nothing of significant importance. But when he stepped back and looked down, he found something that suddenly caught his attention.
9. The Mysterious Carpet
When Eric looked down, he noticed that he was standing on an old carpet. The carpet was quite old and smelled really bad. As Eric had already planned on removing all the carpet in the farmhouse to restore it to its former glory, he decided he might as well start with the one he was standing on.
The carpet didn't make him curious, but it was the floor underneath it that felt a bit strange. After all, he knew that the floorboards underneath the carpet could never be as hard as these ones were. He knew that something else was underneath the carpet, and likely had been there for a long time.
10. His Guess Was Right
After making this strange discovery Eric didn't waste any time removing the carpet. The cleaning of the farmhouse wasn't exciting at all, but this was making him feel alive and energetic.
He started to feel that an ordinary day of cleaning was beginning to turn into something really amazing. And just when he started to tear the carpet away, he noticed something strange beneath it. He was shocked at first and then started to wonder what it could be.
11. An Unexpected Discovery
Things started to take an unexpected turn for shocked Eric. He looked at a slab of concrete for a couple of minutes and wondered what made his grandparents place it underneath the carpet as if they were hiding it.
It seemed so out of place to put a giant concrete slab in the middle of the floor and then hide it underneath a rug. Given how heavy concrete is, it was impossible for Eric to open it without any professional help. So, his curiosity grew...obviously.
12. Is It Hiding Something Valuable?
Eric had no idea why his grandparents hid a strange slab of concrete under their carpet. What made it stranger was that it was in the shape of a cubbord. Maybe it was just a throwaway addition to the farmhouse.
As he started to think more about it, he began to wonder what if his grandparents were hiding a safe under the strange-looking square-shaped slap of concrete. At that time, he wanted to know the truth more than anything else.
