Gareth sat down in the carriage and listened to the story as he was jostled lightly by the movement of the vehicle. Coach was definitely not his favorite means of transport, as it could sometimes make him feel sick. It had been mild on the way here, but it was worse now and he could not entirely suppress a grimace.

"How did you come to know that story about Caverhill? And how do you know it's real?" he asked. "It could just have been a nonsense story to make a worthless map seem valuable."

She climbed into the carriage as well and sat. Her eyes were studious of both men, one for the story and the other for his questioning nature. Claire tilted her head and said, "Why would it not be real if there are clues? Someone would have had to have taken a lot of time just to set up a hoax if that was the case." She twirled her pointer finger in the air for a moment before her hand dropped into her lap. She gave a shrug then.

"I know the story because it was passed along with the map." Quentin says simply. "When you buy a treasure map, you tend to remember the story that sold you on it." He says with a chuckle. "As for how I know if its real, I do not. But I had business to conduct in Whitby when the map made itself available to me and I decided that the small pittance being asked for it was worth the risk that it was false. Still, two clues in does suggest there is some veracity to the claims. It was when I found the first clue on my own that I decided to hire some help to look for more."

Gareth shrugged at Claire, and then at Quentin. "I just meant that there's a lot of fake things sold in Whitby for high prizes - fake jet, fake relics.. and fake treasure maps no doubt. Anyone can tell a nonsense story to make it seem worth more than it is." The fact that a pittance had been asked for something that was supposed to lead to great treasure, only made it more suspicious. He shrugged again. "But I suppose you're right. They wouldn't go to the length of providing a solution to the first clue."

He decided to stop talking. It made him feel worse. And he didn't want to throw up over his new employer, or over a lady. That would be unchivalrous.
