Mrs. Ahmed carefully placed the polished diamond ring into the ultramarine velvet case, smiling to herself as she pictured her daughter’s wedding. However, a few seconds later, thought of her daughter moving out of the house into another city made her heart ache. Her mind was entangled in deep thoughts as she tried to mentally prepare herself for the big change. The sound of her husband broke the train of saddening thoughts and she headed to towards the bedroom. Thus, the last light still on in Mr. Ahmed’s house was turned off.
In the morning Mr. Ahmed was awoken by a loud scream. He jumped out of his bed and toward his wife who was now sobbing. The room that was silent a few minutes ago was now filled with Mrs. Ahmed cries. ‘Ahmed, it’s not here, I swear to God I the locker was locked last night, I…I can’t believe it.’ She paused. ‘How could this happen? What are we going to do?’ Her face had now turned read and her eyes swollen. Mr. Ahmed tried to calm her down and he quickly phoned the Inspector.
Within half an hour the Inspector had arrived with a team of two. After being explained that the precious item had been missing. The Inspector said to them, ‘Well this ain’t surprising.’ Mr. Ahmed was alarmed and had to ask, ‘What do you mean Inspector? ‘The inspector began, ‘This is the third case this week. There is a thief going around stealing different things. Mostly people have lost electronic gadgets, money and bicycles. But I’m sorry this happened to you Mr. Ahmed. We’ll try our best to track down the thief.’
The inspector was about to say something when his colleague approached, ‘Sir, we’ve found a clue that might help us catch the culprit. There is a red candy wrapper. ’A smile came across the Inspectors face as he ordered, “Well, get to it then.’ Mr. Ahmed was about to ask when the Inspector explained, ‘Sir, don’t worry we’ll track the teen thief. Apparently, this time the thief was in a hurry it seems, the candy wrapper must have slipped or of his or hers pocket. We’ll scan the finger prints found on this candy wrapper. Don’t worry, you’ll have your diamond ring back in the afternoon. That is a promise.’
