The Vanishing Trick

complete the story Sameer had gone to Matheran with Paul, his pen pal, who had come from England to spend the summer holidays with him. The two boys rode on horseback all morning and spent the afternoon swimming in the hotel’s pool.
The hotel had arranged a special magic show for the guests that evening. Sameer and Paul sat right in the front hoping to catch the magician at his trick but didn’t realize that it would make them the focus of the magician’s attention.
“What a fine ring you have son, will you give it to me?” said Pyarelal, the magician to Sameer. Sameer promptly took it out from his finger and gave it to him.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, look at this magnificent ring. Now I am going to toss it down the mountain,” said Pyarelal. The audience gasped. Sameer looked worried.
“He hasn’t thrown it, he’s hidden it somewhere,” said Paul softly to reassure Sameer. But Pyarelal heard him.
“Your friend seems to be very sharp. He’s right. I’ve hidden the ring. Why don’t you come up here and help me find it?” Pyarelal said mockingly.
Sameer went up on the stage.
“Son, there’s a banana on your head,” said Pyarelal, picking up a banana from Sameer’s head. Everyone laughed.
“Here, eat it. It’s yours,” continued Pyarelal. Sameer took a bite and spat it out as he felt something hard. To his astonishment, his ring rolled out on to the floor. No one could understand how the ring had got inside the banana.
Turning to Paul, Pyarelal said, “What’s your name, son?”
“Paul,” replied Paul.
“Ok, Paul” said Pyarelal, "Come up on stage”. Then turning his attention to the audience, he said, “Ladies and Gentlemen, I’d like you to meet my young friend Paul.”
Paul went up on the stage and Pyarelal began with a flourish of his wand, “Ladies and gentlemen, I’m going to show you my new vanishing trick. Watch my friend Paul here carefully while I count up to 5. 1….2…….”
At the count of 5, Paul …..

What happened to Paul at the count of 5? Did he really disappear?



At the count of 5,Paul did not disappear,infact everyone present there could notice that Sameer's ring was in Paul's ring finger. The magician wished he could make Paul disappear,as Paul was intelligent and could make the audience feel that magicain is just fooling all of them. Then the show was over and everyone went home.

On the way Sameer asked Paul that where did he go so Paul said he was in a forest. At hearing this Sameer became surprised. So then sameer told Paul that there was only one forest in the village and said to Paul that if he wants to go he can take him there. Paul wanted to go. When they reached the forest Paul said it was the same forest he was in before. Now they both said this could only be done by a dead person. Sameer said''is that magician a dead person then?''Paul said ''Yes'' So they called the priest and said to send the magician back to his grave. When the priest spelled something they saw a smokey thing going down the grave. Paul and Sameer were happy to see that they had an adventure. Soon after that Paul had to leave for India.


At the count of 5, Paul really disapeared. Sameer went to the stage and started searching for Paul. But he was not able to find Paul and then his face turned red.......... blue.......He was really going mad. Suddenly Pyarelal asked " What are you trying to do?"

Pyrarelal nodded and proceeded. He flashed a cloth over Pauls missing legs and... Pauls legs reappered. "Thank you!" Paul yelled as he ran after Sameer.
