The Man Who Wrote The Diary
Thanks to Piya Singh for this week's photo prompt.
He looked at the ancient structure and smiled. He had done it. No one had believed him when he had unravelled the mysterious directions indicated by his grandfather’s grandfather in his diary.
“So you think you will find it?” they had laughed. But he was not to be deterred.
It took him five years but he had eventually reached the place.
As he entered the hut he was shocked to see an old man lying on the floor.
“You did well. The treasure is yours; you deserve it.”
“And who are you?” he asked hesitantly.
“The man who wrote that diary.”
