  1. Dear Shailaja,

    Loved the twist at the end. It makes me wonder whose skeleton this might be. Nicely done tale that left me wanting to know more.



  2. Hmmm … a dental pathologist – archeologist? Interesting read the twist left me a wondering why she was working on a skeleton.

So, what did you think?
