The oak tree that was that was in the back yard had been the mainstay of the estate over the years. The tree was huge with a tree so large it needed three people to walk around the tree. The branches grew high and wide, creating shade during the summer, and the perfect habitat for birds and squirrels.

Since she can recall, Amelia had played beneath the tree. She could hear the voice of her grandmother telling tales of her time spent at the exact spot. Her grandmother would show her initials in the tree’s trunk, and etched in the wood by her grandfather, when they were children and engaged.


As Amelia was looking at the tree and saw the tree, she was struck by a feeling of sorrow. It was a year since her grandmother passed away and the tree seemed strangely different. It was like it was losing the magic it once had.

A few days ago, when Amelia was picking up leaves in the yard, she saw the glimmer of something shining in the soil. Incredulous, she bent down to grab it realizing this was an antique stained key.


While she was looking at the keys as she examined it, she discovered that there was a tag that was attached, with an inscription with the handwriting of her grandmother. The tag read “Mabel’s Treasure.”

When she was ready to quit the idea of giving up, she remembered what her mother had told her before, about the secret hideaway only family members knew about. The alcove was small located in the tree’s trunk. oak tree.


Awed, Amelia rushed back outside with the key tightly within her grasp. Amelia walked towards the tree, and scoured it attentively, until she discovered the key hole hidden within the bark.

After a single click, the key turned and a door that was small in the trunk opened. In the inside, tucked away in a velvet-lined jar was an exquisite, vintage necklace.


Amelia exclaimed as she pulled the necklace from its box, marveling at the beautiful designs and sparkling gemstones. This was something she’d ever experienced before and she realized it had to be the precious item that her mother had mentioned to her.

In a state of shock, Amelia felt tears roll through her cheeks. She was closer to her grandma than she had previously, and was grateful for the treasures and memories that she’d left in her wake.


After returning to her home, with the necklace securely tucked in her bag, Amelia felt a renewed feeling of determination. Amelia knew that the ancient oak tree that was hidden in the forest, with its treasure and the stories from the past, would forever remain a reminder of the family’s heritage and history. She also knew that whatever the future brought her heart would forever be grateful for and cherish the memory of her mother and those who came before her.

Following the events, Amelia spent her time investigating the background of the necklace. She was determined to find out more about its history and the tales that the necklace contained. She discovered that it had been passed down through her family for centuries, and that it had been worn by her great-great-grandmother on her wedding day.
