When Ambur and Lucinda made it back to the beginning of the trail she uncovered the bags of gold she had hid and carried them to the house. Ambur asked Lucinda if he should be there when she told them about the gift. She thought about it and said, “Would you Ambur? I’m not sure how they’ll handle this.”
So Ambur waited on the back porch while Lucinda asked her mom and dad to come out. “What’s so important at 9:30 at night that can’t wait till morning?” asked her mom when they stepped out on the back porch. Ambur was sitting on one of the rocking chairs smoking his pipe.
“Good evening, Steve and Kim,” said Ambur. "Luce asked me to be here, she has some news."
Kimberly said, “Ohhh please … Now what … I mean this can't be good or you wouldn’t be here, right?"
Steve said, “Just relax for a second dear, let’s hear it.”
"I don’t know how to tell you this mom and dad so I’ll just come out and say it. Ambur and Honeysuckle wanted to give me a gift. Not a regular gift, a special one. Ambur has the power to give the gift of finding gold to only one person in his lifetime, and he chose me. I can do this. I can find gold.”
Lucinda’s parents just sat there for a minute trying to understand what they just heard. “You mean you’re thinking about doing this?" her dad asked.
“No dad, he already gave it to me.”
“Maybe we should talk about this first," said her mom.

“Well, maybe you should give it back until you’re sure."
At this point Ambur stood up and said, in a slightly elevated voice, “Steve and Kim I know this has taken you by surprise. What has been done is done. Luce can no longer give it back. It is hers.”
Kimberly then stood up and yelled at Ambur, “Don’t you think you should have ASKED first if this was a good idea?!!!”
Then Ambur jumped up on the picnic table bench and slammed his walking stick on the table with a BLAM! which made both Steve and Kimberly jump. And he yelled back even louder than Kimberly, “I can only give this gift to ONE person in all my life. There has been NO ONE … NO ONE ... that has even come close to having the right mentality and heart that your daughter has. I asked her, she thought about it, we talked about it, and for YOU she did this. I think you should take her in your arms...
