Every morning I get up thinking may be this day will be special
But last 2 years nothing worked as expected. I am a miner who works for 8 hours every day and earn just 5 dollar per day. My childhood was not easy, money is the main issue in my family I wish I could be born again.
It was the year 1763 and season of winter in Transylvania
During winter it becomes very difficult to do our job.
I still remember the day when for first time I saw the coffin of the mysterious man .
Just like a ordinary day it was not special day when we miners were resting during our break time a rumor, spread like fire every one gather at a point deep down in the mines it was pitch dark. I followed the crowd and heard many murmuring
Somewhere saying that the coffin carry the curse of our ancients, somewhere showing the greediness in theirs expression, but exactly I don’t know what was there in the coffin. Somehow I managed to break through the crowd and saw the coffin for first time. It was covered with red cloth, and a heavy lock was attached to coffin It looked heavy but soon I was proved wrong when the coffin was brought out in the sun and only 2 miners did that lifting job, so the coffin was light. And reduces my interest towards the coffin.
At last the coffin was opened it was red from inside too and what we all saw made all of us disappoint. It was skeleton of a man who was rested in peace for a long time. When everyone was moving back to their work with a down and low face, I gave a look towards the coffin once again.
This time what I saw made me shock and sweat instead of skeleton, I saw a man laying down in the coffin and his body looks so fresh as if he hadn’t aged a day. I could not believe on my eyes. I stared to sweat and in next moment after I blinked I saw skeleton laying down and nothing more.
I was confused but didn’t have time to think over it. So I continued my job and didn’t give a second thought about that coffin. .My day work was over now and it’s the time for me to go back home cook food and sleep. I was tired and after the incident of the coffin in the man I was little nervous too. But I didn’t care much and after dinner I went straight to bed.
