#30 His last gift to her

What could that box possible hold that was so special? Grandpa’s desk had always been sacrosanct.

 

She ran her hands over the polished wood top and remembered how she had often found him sitting here.

 

She pulled the drawer open.

A small carved wooden box lay there by itself. Inside, she found an emerald studded gold pocket watch nestled in silk. With it was a note.

 

“Dear Max,

This is everything my grand father brought with him when he left the palace. This is our family legacy and I want you to take good care of it.

Love always

Grandpa”
