(LUGER READING)

(THUNDER RUMBLING)

(RAIN FALLING)

I think I'm being followed.

BLACK:
Then we have little time.

He has discovered the map.

How?

If he has the map, it's

only a matter of time

before he discovers the

location of the box.

What of the four bodies

left behind in the caves?

(BREATHING HEAVILY)

He killed his own men.

(HISSING)

BLACK:
Luger plays the game at

an altogether different level,

one almost admires him.

There is one more thing.

Charity.

So where's the amulet now?

(PANTING)

(PEOPLE CHATTING INDISTINCTLY)

CHARLES:
There are those who

would describe the removal

of the Roman marbles as

vandalism and looting.

I perhaps would agree with them.

But in these times of

greed and avarice,

the removal of the

marbles by Lord Bevan

may actually have saved them

from an even worse fate.

Even during the Greek

war of independence,

the besieged Ottoman forces

were attempting to melt the lead

in the columns of the Parthenon...

(WHISPERS) This is so boring.

To cast bullets.

But at the London Museum,

we cannot dismiss the importance

of these treasures to the Greeks.

Who, even during this time of war,

actually gave the enemy bullets

to save their great temple.

A sacrifice that put

the stones of history

above the lives of their own men.

(DOOR SLAMMING)

MARIAH:
Felix!

Come on, Felix. Father

will be annoyed.

CHARITY:
Impressive, isn't it?

- MARIAH:
Looks just like a stone to me.

- (SIGHS)

(CHUCKLING) Oh, no, no,

no, no, no, no, no.

No, this is a key

to unlocking an entire

civilization, Mariah.

You know me, sir?

Call me Will.

You see, because the text was written in

both Greek and Egyptian hieroglyphics,

we were able to translate

things we never could before.

Never underestimate the power

of buried treasure, my friend.

- You're bleeding, sir.

- Hmm?

Oh...

Looks that way, doesn't it?

Be a good man...

Get your parents for me.

I have something...

Rather important to tell them.

(THUDDING)

FELIX:
Spectacular!

Oh, you're in so much trouble.

Mama, Mariah killed someone.

- On here.

- Steady there, man!

Will, Will?

Will... Will, what happened?

He's found it. He's found the map.

It's only a matter of time

before he finds the box.

Are you sure it's the box?

You think I got this

from playing checkers?

(CHARITY GROANS)

I see you've been up to

your usual antics, Charity.

Will, this is far too

dangerous and reckless.

CHARITY:
I'm sorry, I like to

catch the bad guys instead of

sitting around a museum,

gathering dust.

Do you ever think you should have

married me instead, Catherine?

Catherine, you've let the boys in.

Mariah, Felix, let's get

you back to the hotel.

(SIGHS)

(WHISPERING) There's

something else, Catherine.

(BREATHING HEAVILY)

You're not safe.

I've been followed here.

These are two halves

that together make a whole.

Guard them with your life.

Do not let them get

into the wrong hands.

Hmm?

(PEOPLE CHATTING INDISTINCTLY)

- FELIX:
Who was that man?

- Just an old friend who needs our help.

Does he work for you?

In a way, we work together.

Mariah, there's a waiting

carriage outside.

Take your brother

straight to the hotel.

- But, sir.

- Not now!

You're in charge. Take care of Felix.

Understood?

Always remember.

Faithfulness will be your shield

as a thousand may fall and hide.

But no evil may ever come near you

with gold at your side.

Trust no one. Except each other.

I love you.

- CHARLES:
Where's Will?

- Oh, he just got up and... Left.

- Sir, thank you so much.

- Ah! My pleasure.

Hello, Mr. and Mrs. Mundi.

What's the meaning of this?
