The Undisclosed Secret


A handsome man went into a hotel and asked to see the boss. When the boss came, the story began.

Client: Is room 39 available?

Boss: Yes, sir.

Client: Can I reserve it?

Boss: Of course, you can.

Client: Thank you.

Before going to the room, the client asked the boss to provide him with a black knife, a white thread 39 cm and an orange 73g.

The boss agreed though he was surprised at the weird things the guest asked to have.

The guest went into his room. He didn’t ask for food or anything else.

Unfortunately for the boss, his room was next to room 39.

After midnight, the boss heard strange voices and noise in that guest’s room – voices of wild animals and of utensils and dishes being thrown on the floor.

The boss didn’t sleep that night. He kept thinking and wondering what might be the source of the noise.

In the morning, when the client handed the keys to the boss, the latter asked to see the room first.

He went to the room and found everything alright. Nothing unusual. He even found the thread, the black knife and the orange on the table.

The client paid the bill and gave the bellboys a very good tip and left the hotel smiling.

The boss was in a shock but he didn’t reveal what he heard to the bellboys. In fact, he started to doubt himself.

After one year, the client showed up again. He asked to see the boss again. The boss was in a puzzle.

The client asked for the same things: room 39, a black knife, white thread 39cm and an orange 79g.

This time, the boss wanted to know the truth by all means possible. He spent a sleepless night, waiting for something to happen. After midnight, the same voices and noises started, this time louder and more indecipherable than the year before.

Again, before leaving, the client paid his bill and left a large tip on the table for the bellboys. The smile didn’t leave his face.

The boss started searching for the meaning of everything the client asked to have. Why did he ask for room 39? Why the white thread? Why the black knife??? In fact, the boss didn’t find any convincing answer to all these questions.

The boss now was eagerly waiting for the month of March, the month in which the client usually showed up.

To his surprise, on the first day of March, the same client showed up. He asked the same questions. Wanted to book the same room, wanted to have the same things as before.

The boss again heard the same noises, this time much louder than before.

In the morning, when the client was leaving the hotel, the boss apologized politely to him and asked to know the secret behind the noises in the room.

”If I tell you the secret, do you promise to never reveal it to anyone else?”

”I promise I will never let anyone know.”


”I swear I won’t reveal your secret.”

So finally, the client revealed his secret to the boss.

Unfortunately, the boss is a sincere person. Up till now he hasn’t revealed his secret to anyone. When he does, I will let you know…
