The Trapdoor

“Isn’t our home lovely?”Clapping her hands, Lisa excitedly exclaimed.

Daniel nodded in agreement. He was happy that they finally managed to buy a fully furnished house in Giverny, France. A home they always dreamt about.

A month later, Daniel moved the heavy coffee table to replace the old rug with a new one. They were surprised to find a trapdoor under it. Turning on the flashlight of their mobiles, they carefully stepped down the spiral staircase, which led them to a dark room.

They noticed a painting in the room.

“What a stupid painting!” Daniel exclaimed.

Lisa laughed and replied, “Darling, that looks like a Claude Monet to me. Do you realize what it means, if it is an original Monet?” She asked.

“What?” Looking at his art-connoisseur wife, he asked.

“That we will be millionaires.” Singing she high fived with him. They broke into an impromptu jig, that’s when they noticed a chest at the other end of the room.

They ran to the chest in anticipation. Daniel tried to open it, but when it didn’t budge, he picked the crow-bar lying next to it. When he opened the chest, the sound reverberated in the room and the blood drained from their faces.

A mutilated dead body lay there.

“God! Do you realize what it means? We are in big trouble.” Dropping the crowbar, Daniel announced as he shook like a leaf.
