Thanks for the prompt J Hardy Carroll
The ornate teak wood piece fascinatingly intrigued me. I matched the position
of the needles to my digital wristwatch. The matching was precise. How would I
lug this piece home? Better, contact Christie’s or Sotheby’s. I could pay all my
mortgage bills and have enough for the rainy day. The possibilities were
innumerable.The legacy left behind by a dead relative weighed down on my
shoulders. Were the small windows concealing a clue or a nudge to find my
roots hitherto unknown to me? Or am I sucked into the epicenter of danger?
Only time will tell….
