By ashelton, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
A month later the narrator is visited by a distraught Jupiter. He explains Legrand's behavior. He seems sick, disappears randomly for days at a time, and mumbles about gold in his sleep. Jupiter believes it has something to do with the gold bug, who bit Legrand.
I'm so worried! He's acting so strange! Please you have to come visit him.
Jupiter and the narrator return to Legrand's hut and are met with a completely hysteric Legrand. He tells the narrator that the bug is made out of gold. He intends to use the bug to get back his fortune. He then requests that the narrator accompanies him on an expidition, to find the treasure that the map on the back of his sketch shows.
I can get my fortune back!
They leave that afternoon armed with spades, lanterns, and the bug. By night they reach an areas of trees, and cut away at the branches until they reach a tall tulip tree. Legrand then tells Jupiter to start climbing the tree with the bug.
Climb that tree!
When Jupiter reaches the seventh branch he is told to climb to the end of it. At the end of the branch there is a skull with a nail through it. He orders Jupiter to drop the beetle through the skulls left eye. After the bug lands, Legrand marks the spot and 50 yards from the spot. Once marked all three begin to dig.
The three had dug for hours and hours yet no treasure was found. Just as Legrand was about to give up he realized Jupiter had switched up his left and right. He adjusts the digging markers and they begin digging again. They eventually dig up treasure.
After returning home and looking at the treasure, Legrand began to feel extremely lucky for having found it. He then recalled how he had found the map that lead him to the treasure. He had applied heat and found a secret message from Captain Kidd, an old pirate who had buried the treasure. He followed the directions and found the tree.
