Can You Solve This Mystery?

Thank you to Lorca Damon for reminding me of that.

No sane person would create a wall like this. They just wouldn’t.

Something happened in this room. But, what? What happened to the third wall hanging? Who took it and why? Did they have to take it? Was it part of a plan? What did they do with it? Was this part of some other crime? The possibilities are endless.

But, there must be a reason only two pieces of art are on the wall.

Please, solve this mystery. This room is giving me nightmares. I must know what happened. I must know why this wall is like this.

Tell me what you imagine the explanation for the missing 3rd wall hanging is in a comment below in less than 250 words. I encourage everyone to take a stab at this, whether you’re a writer or not. Have some fun with it! Let your imagination run free (in a crass-free way, of course).

    It was taken down by the psychologist whose office it is. The doctor looked at her appointment book, saw she was treating a newly emigrated Irishman named Paddy O’Brien from County Cork who suffered from stuttering. She knew they were close to a breakthrough. She said to herself, “Three trees could set Paddy back years.”

      Sounds like a very caring psychologist, Christine! Thank you for your explanation!

    The logical answer is this office is located in a first class medical office building constructed of steel, glass and concrete. The portion of the wall where the third tree should be affixed is solid prestressd concrete which will not accept a proper anchor for the third painting.

      Interesting, Richard. Sounds like you have a civil engineering history. Thank you for your explanation!

    Nearly one-fifth into the 21st century, science is moving at an amazing pace. Every day brings new discoveries, and old theorems are disproved. The third picture was of an apple. Turns out it CAN fall far from the tree.

      You’ve done Sir Isaac Newton proud, Laurie. Thank you for your explanation!

    Sadly, the glorious red painting that had been hanging in my office met its demise and has gone to the great recycle bin in the sky. It was painted by my grandmother, who was not an artist, but was brave in her effort to branch out and use her sense of creativity to express herself. After all, she was used to performing on the stage. She was certainly no artist. But I was so inspired by her that I made a pledge to myself to hang it in my office when I opened my talent agency. I should’ve known better. After all, I represent a huge variety of talent. I should’ve been more careful with the perspective client who advertised himself as “the next sweetheart of Big and Tall models.” In retrospect, I guess I could’ve seated him elsewhere in the waiting room. At least I didn’t put him next to the fire alarm. Sorry, Grandma.

      Nice twist, Kathy! Made me laugh. Thank you for your explanation!

    The third missing picture was equipped with surveillance equipment. This was discovered when Beatrice, a spry octogenarian patient of the GI practice, decided to lava jump from chair to chair. Not one to pass a dare, Bea, jumped onto the end chair when her caregiver said “you can’t do that Bea.” Bea does not like to be told what to do by any one, ever. Her cane slipped and crashed into the wall knocking down the picture. When the receptionist removed the fallen picture she noticed a camera hidden in one of the leaves. She was shocked at first but she had some reservations about Olga the newest physician to join the practice. Rumor has it that the newbie has ties to Putin. The good news is, the camera got some great footage of Bea doing her lava jump from chair to chair and now she has her own YouTube channel and she’s gone viral!

      Bea sounds like a lot of fun, Bryce! I hope we’ll here more about her. Thank you for your explanation!

    Simple. The hanger couldn’t align the picture with the other two and gave up. After 5 hours of trying. It now hangs alone on a wall in his wine cellar; a room he visits daily.

      I feel the hanger’s pain, Kelly. And, I wish I had a wine cellar! Thank you for your explanation!

    The third picture was laid off during the 2008 economic downturn.

      That makes a lot of sense, Dave. Those were tough times. Thank you for your explanation!

    Sadly, the ophthalmologist was nearsighted, too.

    Or…

    The new receptionist, a part-time reiki instructor and life coach, took it upon herself to fluff the room’s chi.

    Or…

    Someone didn’t quite finish paying off the layaway.

    Or…

    This is the exact room Sartre sat in when he wrote “No Exit.”

      Some interesting angles, Susan! Thank you for your explanation!

    The problem is not that a third picture is missing but that A FOURTH CHAIR WAS BROUGHT IN!

      Interesting take, Dave. But, why was that 4th chair brought in?

  • Ree

    If you look at the wall, there are no imperfections to show that there EVER was a third painting. My guess? Dr. Assface, who specializes in the lower GI tract, put two painting with a special place for the third, knowing that it would drive his patients to madness.

    • gina valley

      He sounds like a madman, Ree! One can only wonder what other diabolical things he has done!

    Customers were hitting/leaning their head on he third painting.

      That makes sense, Denise! Thank you for your explanation!
