Wishing well

I don't have time to write a story today, so I offer you a photograph.

Whenever I look at this picture, taken in Beihai Park in Beijing, I consider it for a long time, wondering what these young people are thinking about as the coin drops into the water.

I love the girl second from the right. She's intent and thinking deeply. About what? What is she wishing for?
