Seeking Treasure

Hiroshi’s five sons are seated around their late father’s kitchen table with their laptop computers open. They argue among themselves over top of their screens.

Father was a wealthy man but also extremely cautious by nature. All of his accounts have been protected by intricate passwords and the sons are unable to access anything. Their only clue is the cryptic note left by their Father.

In the living room the twelve-year-old grandson sits looking down on his Grandfathers miniature zen garden. “Dad” he calls out “I know where it is..”

“Don’t bother us Son, can’t you see we are busy?”

The boy reaches out and lifts the largest stone, peers at the paper, then replaces it as he found it. “To heck with them” he grumbles.
