We all hope at that one point in our lives a forgotten family fortune will suddenly reveal itself. Who doesn't want that to happen? Who won't welcome the free fortune?
The following story is about a man's girlfriend who found out that she was inheriting an old house. So, they went to that place to see what's in it for them. Their heads filled with dollar signs. Human nature.
Those hopes rose even higher when they found a mysterious chest inside.
Read the story to find out what happened exactly.
She inherited the old house when she came to know that a distant relative of her mothers had passed away and had left no will. She thought she had inherited something of value and went with her boyfriend to take a trip to the house to see what they had been handed.
When they reached the house there was nothing to see but their eyes were caught by this mysterious box. It can be a jackpot, they thought.
Their excitement was at the top of the world. They just wanted to open this box as soon as possible. But, there were dozens of keys to choose from. Tough task!
After lots of struggle and few tries, they finally found the right key. There was something inside. Hopefully, it was money, or stocks, bonds, a deed to something valuable, she could barely contain her enthusiasm.
No fortune was found inside, but there were a few coins along with something else. Disappointments all over. Wait, is this a hidden clue? But what was the photograph? Could it be the clue to a great hidden fortune?
Nope! It was just a picture of an exceptionally photogenic sheep. Hard Luck.
That photo is priceless for sure. They were literally disappointed. Later, they sold the property for $1,000 at auction, the same amount it had cost them to go to the house and find the box and photograph. Hahaha!
