When Tyler was born long ago his mother died. Before his mother died, she gave him two things, a notebook and a necklace, which he lost.

Fifteen years later, Tyler is still on the hunt for the missing necklace. He needs someone to help him on his quest. As he continued his search for the necklace, he wrote in the journal that his mum gave him. One day when he went to the human world, he met Eric who promised to help him find the necklace.

Eric knew that Tyler was hiding something… He saw Tyler go into the forest and when he searched the forest, he couldn’t find him and then Tyler jumped out of nowhere and said: “Why are you following me?”

Eric says: “I know you’re hiding something, why are you here?”

Tyler says: “I’m not hiding anything.”

Eric insists: “Tyler, I know you are hiding something, why are you here in the forest. Just confess.”

Tyler refuses to confess. Tyler decides to test Eric, to see if he is a good enough friend to confess his secret. Tyler tells Eric a fake secret. The secret is that he has a girlfriend and waits to see if Eric keeps the secret. Eric tells nobody. But Tyler still doesn’t trust him, so Tyler gives him another fake secret that he broke up with his girlfriend. Eric still tells nobody. Tyler finally trusts Eric and brings him into the forest and goes behind the magic bush to turn into a wolf. Eric screams! “Wait! Don’t be afraid, it’s still me!” Tyler replies. Tyler quickly turns back into a human to show Eric it is still him. “Wait, turn back into a wolf,” says Eric, “I want to see it again!”

Eric screams again!!

Tyler tells Eric everything about when he was a baby his mother was poisoned by a montesaurus who stole her necklace. Eric promised to help find the necklace and get revenge. “Why did the montesaurus want the necklace so badly,” asks Eric.  “We’ll just have to find out,” answers Tyler.

Tyler and Eric gather some scuba gear and go to the ocean in search of the montesaurus. When they get to the ocean the montesaurus has a trap set. They are 20 feet below the surface, and they cannot get out. If they don’t escape soon, they will run out of oxygen. They are surrounded by a clear bubble giving them a view of the ocean around them. The montesaurus has set them a quiz and they must answer all of the questions before the time runs out. Tyler takes out the diary his mother gave him, and it contains clues to the answers as she had to go through the same thing before she died. Tyler had one gem, the montesaurus had another, and the necklace has the other gem. The montesaurus needs Tyler’s gem to unlock the power inside the necklace.

Tyler’s gem is in the notebook. Tyler knows that the montesaurus wants it because his mother has it written in the notebook. They solved one clue, but time is running out. The second clue is easier, and they solve it in record time. They need to find a key to unlock the final clue and, in their search, they find Tyler’s mom’s bones. For the last clue, they have no idea where to find the key until eventually they find it stuck in the sand with a tiny piece shining out. The bubble suddenly opens, and they rise to the surface and see the monetsaurus’s cave and the montesaurus coming out…
