Everyone continued their walk to the fourth location where the last key is hidden, which is called The Backs. This place is a series of gardens and parks that line up beside the River Cam. The group made it after ten minutes. Rosie remarked, "I feel like we're in paradise, mates." Nicholas replied, "I do, too, love. It's so lovely and peaceful here!" George added, "It is, indeed!" After searching thoroughly once again, the group found the key underneath one of the flower beds. Rosie exclaimed, "Hooray! We did it! Now, we can find and unlock the treasure!" John replied, "That's right, Rosie! Where is it located, by the way?" Rosie opened the map again and said, "The chest is waiting to be uncovered inside the Botanical Gardens, and we will just have to cross to the other side in order to get there." John replied, "Jolly good! Treasure, here we come!" With that, the five friends and the Beatles crossed one of the bridges and were on their way to dig up the chest. Meanwhile, the bullies, who had resumed their quest, were having a difficult time recovering from John's strong retort earlier. The moment when they reached The Backs and saw the jolly group on the other end, they eventually gave up and resorted to dirty cheating by stealing a storage box from the nearby college along with some keys. The bullies tried opening it, but to no avail because it turned out that they got the wrong keys! Thankfully, one of the event organizers saw and confronted them and said, "Did you get that storage box without permission?" The leader stammered and lied, "Um, no, sir. We just found it here outside." The organizer wasn't deceived and shook his head. He replied, "I'm afraid you have committed an act of cheating and university property theft. This is a total violation of our treasure hunt rules. You'll all have to come with me back to the city square and explain to us what you have done throughout your quest. So, while shuddering, the bullies followed the event organizer back to the starting point. It seems that Karma is catching up to them at last.
