In the hills surrounding the town of Bodega Bay in California, there is a tree, sitting right in the crook of two hills. Scattered 10 paces around it are 7 different fresh-water springs. It is said that one of them cures any disease, another grants immortal life, 4 will kill you instantly and cause your body to dissolve into powder. But the last spring is special. If you bottle water from this one and take it to a small cave hidden in the hills north of the tree, you will find a single large stone at the back of the cave. If you then splash the water on the stone, it will dissolve, leaving you a baseball-sized red stone. As long as you have this stone in your possession, you will always be in the right place at the right time. If you pour water from any of the other 6 springs on the rock, the cave will seal up, and you will be lost forever under the earth.

    @ mikeal

    if you bring six people and you happen to get the right water and they don’t the cave will close up and mostlikly only you will get out so when picking the people make sure you don’t like any of them

    I agree with Mikeal. Bring six people with you, bottle water from all of the springs, and all can go into the cave at the same time. Take turns splashing water on the stone from each bottle. If you’re sealed up, it’ll be okay, because one person will get the stone.

    And when they’re in the right place at the right time, they’ll automatically be in the right place when someone finds the way out.

    I wish I lived in California. D8

    I agree with Mikeal.
    Can you die in the cave if you went to the immortality one?

      That would be sad. Living eternally in a closed cave. With no one to speak to, and no food…

    This made me think of the first Happy Potter book, when they were trying to get to the stone thingy. And Tuck Everlasting, because of the springs.

    Don’t go in the cave. Bring 6 people, make one of them sickly. Then carfeully test all the water, using the sick person last. Shoot the other two, if they live you know they are immortal. Then take the last spring and go to the cave. It’s workable so long as you don’t mind the whole dead people are your fault thing.

    Nice.

    As much as I like the idea of fucking over the paranormal and coming out all right in the end (there are many stories about bargains with the Devil that interest me like that) I will point out a hole in your plan…. No one said the right water would *unseal* the cave. Just that the wrong water would *seal* it.

      No, only splashing the wrong water at the stone would seal the cave shut. The cave has to be open for you to get inside of it, you know?

    to all the people saying that you should take 6 people there, you should rather take 7 lab rats with you and test the different springs on them

    Bring 7 AIDS victims and have them all drink the water simultaneously, use logic to figure out which is which and enjoy the good life.

    get 7 bottles, one from each spring, and secretly distribute them to terminally ill patients who have less than a week to live. 4 will die immediately, don’t use those springs. one will be healed and you’ll know that’s the disease-cure. then watch the last two until someone dies…the other one will be the immortal, and the other will be the one for the magic rock. you win.

    @Flea

    However if you get the right stone, then the person who holds it will always be in the right place at the right time, so using that logic, the person would be able to get out somehow with the stone.

    You should bring 7 people who are sick and try them on each bastard,the guy who dies and does not disintegrate will be the one that is rock spring.
