The Envelope✉

That night, it was snowing heavily. He was all alone in the woods. For last few days, mysterious events had occured and his fellow gypsies had vanished. There was only one common thing, the appearance of a red light on every night this occured.

There was something quite weird which he could not figure out. He was so disturbed that he had not slept for two nights. That night he decided to go out in the woods and have a walk. He was lost in his own thoughts that suddenly, he stumbled upon something. As he turned his flash light on, he noticed his friend’s dead body. He was taken aback. He noticed an envelope tied to one of his wrist. He dared to open it. There was only one letter written on the note inside it – ‘R’.

The next morning , when he came back to the same spot, he astonishingly found the rest four bodies. Similarly, he found an envelope on each hand. The letters were -‘H’,’V’,’B’,’B’. He was puzzled. He was not able to decode the messages. He sat beside a tree , pondering over the mystery.

The night drew on. He sighed heavily and stood up, when we noticed the same red light. Miraculously, he then understood what the letters meant—-

R-Radioactivity

H-Haemorrhage

V-Venom

B-Blood Vomitting

B-Blisters

The next morning , the police arrived as their families had reported them missing. He was found dead with envelopes tied to his legs and arms. Each one had the letter ‘C’.

C- ‘CURIOSITY’
