Japanese Cryptic: The old-man who lived in mountains

Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)


Cryptic Story


There was a old-man who got so fed up with the humanity that he started living deep in the mountains.

The old-man had a grand-child called Jesse who would write him letters everyday to ease his mind.

Jesse continued to send him letters everyday. It went on for months until one day when the old-man didn't receive any letter. He kept on waiting but no letter came even after a week. The old-man was worried now.

He left the mountains and headed to the city to find about his grand-child. When he reached the grand-child's house, he came to know that his grandchild had been murdered by someone.

This saddened him; tears rolled out of his eyes. He vowed to catch the murderer.

"No, I think I already know...Only that guy could be the murderer..."

  1. It was the mailman?

  2. Maybe the letters were for ransom?

  3. So the mailman got too tired of going long distance (grandpa lives deep in mountains) to deliver letters that he killed jesse?
    It's make sense since he had to deliver everyday and went on for months, probably forever if he hadn't killed jesse

    1. Yes, that's how I understand it. It's probably the mailman who committed the crime. But I can't understand one thing: How did he know where the old-man lived?

    2. I think Jesse wrote the address in her letters. He has to know the address in order to deliver the letter everyday right? anyway. Thanks, a good cryptic story
