After kissing Ben, Stephanie has a dream about them getting married and becomes more aware of her new feelings for him. Ben and Stephanie officially become boyfriend and girlfriend. When they dock, a deck hand explains to Ben and Stephanie the power of their bracelets.
After a few weeks of more traveling on the ocean, Lionel and the rest of the group decided it was time to dock again. As soon as they found a dock, they tied up their little ship. When they climbed out of the ship and walked along the beach, they heard a lot of people speaking Spanish. Suddenly a young boy about twelve years of age came up to them and welcomed them to Mexico. They thanked him.
"Boy, I'm hungry," Stephanie said. "I could use some lunch."
"Me, too," Ben agreed.
"Me, three," Matthew chimed in.
"There's got to be a restaurant nearby, guys," Alexis assured them. "We'll find something soon."
The travelers looked until they found a restaurant with a big sign in the front that said "Los Tacos Famosos de Papa Gonzalez".
"Tacos," Matthew said. "I love tacos. Let's eat here, you guys!"
The entire group agreed and walked to the restaurant. When they got there, a host named Miguel Valdez led them to a booth. "Your waitress will be here momentarily," he told them. As soon as he left, everyone looked over the menus and decided what they wanted.
A few minutes later, a lovely young girl came over to their table. "Hello, everyone. My name is Rosita Gonzalez. My father owns this restaurant, and I will be your waitress today. Does everyone know what they want?"
Matthew was instantly mesmerized by Rosita's beauty. "A long walk along the beach," he said, sounding as if he were in a trance. When he saw his friends all smiling at each other knowingly, he said, "Um, I mean, I'd like the burrito with lots of cheese, meat, and lettuce and tomatoes and water to drink."
Rosita smiled and giggled a little. "Very well," she said. After she took everyone else's order, she left the table.
"Matthew's got a crush, Matthew's got a crush," Ben sang teasingly.
"Ben, stop," Matthew said, embarrassed. Then he sighed. "But you're right. I think she's hot! When she comes back I'll give her my number."
Rosita came back to the table with their beverages, then again with their food. As she was setting their plates in front of them, Miguel approached her. "Rosita, I'm going on my lunch break right now, but there's a couple up front. Could you please lead them to a table for me?"
Rosita smiled. "Certainly," she agreed.
"Gracias, mi corazon," Miguel said as he kissed Rosita on the cheek. Turning to the group, he said, "Rosita is such a wonderful fiancée!" After he said that, he and Rosita left the table.
As the group ate their lunch, they noticed Matthew wasn't touching his. "I just don't have an appetite," he said.
Stephanie patted his back gently. "Oh, Matthew, I'm sorry you were disappointed, but you'll find a girl. I promise. Maybe you'll even find her during this trip."
Matthew sighed. "It's going to be a very long trip."
When they head back to the dock, the group sees that their ship has been stolen, and they're upset because all of their belongings, including Stephanie's cell phone, were on there. They learn where the nearest airport is and decide to go there. Read the next episode of THE MYSTERIOUS CITIES OF GOLD REVISITED.
