If you are allowed to make an addition to the story and bring it to a more satisfactory conclusion, how would you end the story “A Face in the Dark” by Ruskin Bond?
Well, Bond’s story “A Face in the Dark” ends at such a climatic point that it leaves most readers somewhat dissatisfied and wondering what might have happened to Mr. Oliver thereafter. The author leaves it to the readers to stretch their imagination.
If I have to give the story a more conclusive ending, I would like to think that Mr. Oliver would run again in the opposite direction calling for help when he would trip on a rock and fall on the ground. At this point he would wake up in perspiration and know all this was just a dream in his sleep.
