Scott Roche‘s latest short story, X Marks the Spot, fills the reader with nostalgic memories of a gone-by era.
The main character, a middle-school student, unearths a box in the woods and discovers a valuable treasure. Telling you any more would simply spoil the story. Suffice it to say that you’ll soon discover the treasure is more than our young protagonist was expecting.
Reading this story made me think of the movie Goonies, a movie from my childhood about exploration and buried treasure. This short piece encapsulates the memories I have watching the movie and it’s a prime example of Scott’s writing talent.
