Author's Note: This piece is an alternate ending/ prediction to the story Buried Treasure in the series 315. It shows what I think will happen to the two characters and how they eventually become great friends.
In the story Buried Treasure, I think that the end of the story is going to result in Clarence having a talk with Cody who changes his perspective on life. I have a feeling that when Cody finally finds out the story about old Clarence, he will become good friends with him and go to visit him everyday. I have this feeling because old men are usually very kind and wise once you get to know them. Eventually, Cody will ask about the golden hook just because the city has always wondered. Although, he will be taken back by the answer he receives from the elder. In the beginning, Clarence won't accept the food that Cody brings him because of some anger he still has towards the city. After time though, he will begin to accept the food and be grateful for Cody, his best friend. Clarence would get lonely in the woods everyday and when Cody comes, he will realize just how much he missed having someone to talk to and be there for him.
