James was from a royal family. He was the son of King Jordan. One day, King Jordan decided to make one of his sons his heir. Julian, Johnathan, and James were excited and nervous. Their challenge was to battle against the cruel ruler of London. They had to fight together and the one who to kill the enemy would be the heir. The battle had great preparations . While on one side, there were 20,00,000 men,100 mortars, 2000 cannons, and a large number of cavalry with the army divided into three groups, led each by one of the three sons. While on the other side, there were more men but less guns led by Charles the second. The enemy was aware that all three brothers united would have killed him, so he planned to attack them at midnight when they were asleep . The day before the battle, some of them went to kill James, and although they had killed the wrong person, everyone thought James dead. He took this advantage and made more preparations. James appeared after a long time when the battle had already started. The other brothers were in shock for James was stronger than them and they thought James had been killed by the enemy long ago and one of them could be the heir. King Jordan heard the news of James returning all of a sudden and was happy to get his son back.
After ten months, the battle ended. The battlefield was filled with cold bodies. The sun was going down and in a moment, it was dark. The place which was filled with roars and cries just in the morning, was now a field of blood and dead men. In a city fifty miles away, there was a celebration. Two men were sitting on two golden thrones: Jordan and his son James. The others were dead. After many months of celebration, suddenly Jordan died, leaving his vast empire to James. His dying wish was that his son should get the crown of his grandfather, Jefferson. James did not find anything special in that crown but his mother, Helen, always insisted on wearing the crown every day. He understood that there was a mystery in this crown. How could have his father given him only a golden crown? He kept his crown on a stool. One day while James was bathing, he heard a noise and went out. He saw that his crown was gone . He sent two small groups to investigate the matter. The first group was unsuccessful, but the second group found three suspects. One of them was James uncle Jack. James soon learned who the culprit was for he had been told that Jack had entered the palace while he was bathing and the other two were fruit sellers. As Jack was his uncle, James did not sentence him to death, but sent him to prison for only a month for Jack had returned the crown.
James was still trying to find out the mystery of the crown when, one day, he found something written on the crown: JEFFERSON,THE FIRST MAN OF THE LEWIS DYNASTY DECLARES THAT THIS CROWN,WHICH WAS WORN BY HIS ANCESTORS SHOULD BE WORN BY HIS SON, GRANDSON, GREAT GRANDSON AND SO ON. THIS CROWN SHOULD NOT BE WORN BY THE WRONG PEOPLE AS THIS CONTAINS A VERY SPECIAL RUBY.
James was surprised. Where was the ruby? Then all of a sudden he saw a prison guard coming into the room. The man informed him that Jack had suddenly escaped. A man had seen him run and told the prison guard. James was confused. He could not understand this. One day he heard that Jack was caught by a king when he was going to steal something. James went there and asked the king if Jack had anything with him. He told that there was a ruby in Jack’s pocket. Then he refused to give the ruby back. Finally it was given. After this, Jack died there in captivity and James ruled wisely, though when he went on a voyage later, his ship sunk with him wearing the crown with the ruby on top.
There is a legend which says that this crown is deep under the sea, where no one can find it.
