    Hahahaha so cute words but left for the others to complete. What an awesome picture, Radhika I loved it. Just the small pond of water and all over a sleet of ice. Loved it. So into the pond they drove and found their treasure.

    coming from a Calvin & Hobbes bent of mind ;), i am tempted to say they sank right into the pond… after-all can ponds be roads?… but then that’s the beauty of human imagination… which the author has very deftly left it to the readers imagination 🙂
    I ponder what would be the readers plight if Agatha Christie or Arthur Conan Doyle missed pinning down the murderer??

      Thanks Karthik. That’s the beauty of a fictional piece. The writer can create a picture and paint it the way he wants it to be or just leave it to the readers interpretation to fill it up!!! Some stories are best left at the cliff hanger!


  6. Wow, I always amazed by your stories based on the picture, this one is thrilling :-). I hope they found the treasure.

    …and….? Oh! You keep us guessing. Well just lets hope that they found a teeny but very beautiful and generous mermaid’s palace deep down there and just decided to stay back.
