A treasure hunt

A treasure hunt

One afternoon, I received a letter which contained a map of the park near my house. A big cross was marked at a corner. Right at the bottom of the piece of paper were two rows of strange words:
?Frut eht rednu gid
Evresed uoy tahw dnif lliw uoy?

It must be a secret code! After looking at it for a long time, I realized that the message could be found if I read it backward. The secret message was:
?Dig under the turf
You will find what you deserve?

Immediately, I ran to the park. I found the corner where the turf was and started digging with a fallen tree branch. Soon, I saw a small box. In a state of great excitement, I opened it and found a piece of paper. It said: Dig harder!

I shouted with frustration and started digging again. I began to perspire and I felt my arms aching. I was about to give up when I spotted another box. Holding my breath in excitement, I opened the box? and found another piece of paper. This time, there was a picture of an idiot and the words: ?This is what you deserve. Hee! Hee!?

I was mad with anger. However, when I calmed down, I realized that I had indeed been a fool, wasting one afternoon on dreams of getting rich without working for it.
