Overview

Have you ever wondered in the back of your mind, what if you could make a wish and it came true. That's exactly what happened to Dr. Murray when he went on an expedition with a group of archeologists to the Aztec ruins. Dr. Murray was a big dreamer with an over active imagination. So even if Dr. Murray were to tell someone that he made a wish and it came true, no one would believe him. Dr. Murray is what you would call the little boy who cried wolf. Dr. Murray was one of seven young archeologists eager to make a name for himself. The expedition was planned around May. Not too hot and not too cold. The archeologists that were going on the Aztec expedition were Dr. Murray, Dr. Morley, Dr. Webber, Dr. Sanchez, Dr. Seymour, Dr. Roberts and Dr. Bell.
The skies were blue that day their flight took off for the Aztec Ruins expedition. Dr. Murray sat next to Dr. Bell on the plane. Dr. Murray's over active imagination was already kicking in. Dr. Murray's mouth wouldn't shut up during the flight. Dr. Murray was telling stories about his great uncle Henry who was an archeologist. Henry was part of the first archeologist's that made significant discoveries at the Aztec Ruins. Of course Dr. Bell knew that was a lie because Dr. Bell knew Dr. Murray's uncle Henry was a drunk and the only thing remotely close to him being an archeologist was digging up bones in his back yard. Dr. Bell finally heard enough of Dr. Murray's farfetched stories and put his headphones on and turned up the music to drown out Dr. Murray's motor mouth.
Dr. Murray said, "I guess I'll just read a magazine."
Dr. Bell just closed his eyes and slept as the music poured through his headphones drowning out any background noise, including Dr. Murray. The small twin engine plane carrying the seven archeologists finally landed at their destination, the Aztec ruins. The seven archeologists got their luggage and were transported to their hotel where they would be staying during the expedition. The archeologists got something to eat, then got dressed and gathered their equipment for the expedition. The seven archeologists piled in the van with their equipment and headed to the Aztec ruins to start the expedition. The archeologists weren't even on the road five minutes when Dr. Murray's stories started flying out of his mouth. The drive to the dig site was about an hour away. The other archeologist’s weren't interested in Dr. Murray's stories. So they talked amongst each other and talked over Dr. Murray trying to drown out his conversation.
"At last were here," said Dr. Bell.
Dr. Bell was in charge of the Aztec expedition. Dr. Bell and the other six archeologists were led to the Aztec ruins by a guide to get them familiar with the ruins. Dr. Murray didn't like playing second fiddle to no one and wasn't really interested in the ruins. Dr. Murray had his eyes set on something much bigger. The something much bigger was three crystal skulls. Legend has it that if these three crystal skulls were to be placed in triangular formation and if controlled by the wrong hands could destroy anything, including the earth. Dr. Murray would stop at nothing to get his hands on the three crystal skulls and demonstrate his power to his colleagues. Dr. Murray had a good idea where the location of the three crystal skulls, but it would not be easy getting to them. There is a cave that is about a mile from the ruins but Dr. Murray would have to persuade one of the guides to take him there. Dr. Murray was able to persuade one of the guides to take him to the cave with some gold that was found in the ruins by Dr. Morley.

    What a waste of time

    This reads like it was written by a twelve year old as a classroom assignment. Don't waste your time as I did mine.

    Not worth the time or effort.

    The story plot might have had a chance if the author had talent.

    ?

    The story idea was good, but it needs some work. It gave me the impression the story needed a certain number of words because many of them were repeated when it wasn't necessary.
