Zero had hit Mr. Pendanski and made a run for it. Stanley was proud and happy for him but, also worried about how he was going to survive.
Stanley took Mr. Sir's water truck but, drove it right into a hole. He started running looking for Zero. He found him in a half buried boat. There was this thing called sploosh that Zero had found, it was sweet and most of all the only liquid they had for miles and miles.
Stanley carried Zero up the mountain. He found mud which meant there was water somewhere. He started digging and found dirty water so he drank it. Him and Zero drank dirty water and ate onions that were somehow still good.
Stanley tried digging the hole deeper but, it was just mixing up the dirt and water making it dirtier. He needed the shovel, so he decided that Zero was going to be okay so he went out to look for the shovel. He hadn't realized how far he had went up carrying Zero. On his way up he had to rest multiple times yet going up the first time with Zero he didn't rest once.
Stanley and Zero decided to go back to camp green lake to find the treasure. When they started to see holes again they stopped and waited. Finally they thought it was safe so Stanley started digging while Zero went to find some water and food. Stanley found something metal and tried digging underneath of it trying to make it so he could reach underneath the object and pull it out.
Stanley and Zero were now living together and having a party with Clyde Livingston and his wife celebrating Stanley's dad invention of Sploosh. It makes shoes smell better.
