100-Word Mys­tery


Reader's Digest - - The Genius Section -

Lois and He­len, wid­owed sis­ters, lived to­gether out in the coun­try. Their habits never changed: up at dawn, break­fast, some house­work and gar­den­ing un­til lunch. In the af­ter­noon, He­len napped while Lois watched her shows—he­len never watched TV. Then He­len would clean the veg­eta­bles for din­ner and Lois would cook. In the evening, they’d read be­fore bed. One night be­fore they turned in, a storm knocked out the power. Ev­ery­thing was pitch­black, and Lois be­gan to panic. “What should we do?” she cried. He­len just smiled and kept read­ing. Why did He­len stay calm while her sis­ter did not?
