It was one of the days when I sneaked into my grandfather's study room when I found the peculiar snow globe. It was sitting on the bookshelf in between his old books. I wouldn't have noticed that the snow globe was different from the ordinary one if I didn't pick it up and shake it. But I did and found that the snow in the globe was in cross shape and had two black dots.
"That was a souvenir from my brother."
My grandfather was standing at the door and watching me.
"I'm sorry...to come into your room." I jumped and apologized.
"That's all right. You see the island in the globe. That is where it snows in summer. I guess it should be snowing over there at the moment," he said.
