Mystery creates History!
Yes, it’s true in a way.
Every mystery is an intriguing story that transforms itself into a historical event. Only … if … someone bothers to see it that way …
Brain racking, subtle, fast-paced, coded, etc … mysteries are written in various forms and styles.
When you do your research, do a little more on codes, crypts and different types of secret messages. There are innumerable ways to communicate a secret message to your friend or partner.
I’ll share a secret. Take a blank paper, a thin stick and lemon juice. Put the stick in the lemon juice and write your secret message on the blank paper. Once it dries after a few moments, take the black paper near a candle and slightly heat the paper. You secret message will appear like magic on the blank paper!
