0

“Hey Ravi, Harish!! let us go to the places where the thefts took place recently………….we may find something from it. ” Said Abhijeet who was in a good mood. “Let us have breakfast first…….I am super Hungry” Ravi said. The breakfast had boiled eggs, bacon, fresh bread, raspberry marmalade and fresh milk. “Gosh!! aunty, you are really a marvel,” said Harish gulping his food. “Oh!! you boys” said his aunt and went back to the kitchen. Ravi switched on the television and put on the channel B. B.C. The latest headlines was the same as the newspaper, the only difference was that they could see the live footage.

“Hey!!” said Abhijeet. “That house belongs to M.s Brown who lives down the lane”………… “And How do you know?” asked Harish. “I used to visit her everyday earlier in my vacation, when I didn’t know two Idiots…………….Ravi and Harish” Abhi replied….. “Let us visit her ………….we will ask her about the things that happened yesterday and how it happened” Ravi said with a  grin. “Great Idea………….I prefer going after breakfast, and taking a gift for her…….she likes roses, we can buy a bouquet and some chocolates” Abhi said. “Does Aunty Have Chocolates?” Harish Asked. “No yaar!! the chocolates are for me….” Abhi replied……….”Some people never change…” said Ravi as they got ready to go.

As they had planned, the trio bought a rose bouquet and (of course) CHOCOLATES!!. Much to the disappointment to Ravi, Abhijeet finished the whole bar in the fist bite. ” It is not fair………..i am telling you………..but it is not fair, you fatso” said Ravi. “Oh!! You know I can’t resist it……….You can buy another bar from my money” he replied. Ravi liked chocolates but, he didn’t gulp it in a single bite like Abhijeet. As they had finished shopping, they started their short journey towards the other lane to M.s Brown’s house, or Mansion!!

M.s Brown’ was whole-hearted lady, and her house was even bigger. Her house had a very large backyard, her house looked more that of a film-stars’ or a industrialist. Moreover, even M.s Brown didn’t look any less than a film star. She had put on a T-shirt and a Jeans pant, and had put on  a branded sun-glass. She had put lots of perfume and Harish was finding difficult to stand near her because of the smell that was irritating him. “Hey Aunty” said Abhijeet and handed her the bouquet of flowers.”Please come in” she said. Her voice was softer than silk. She served us with ice-cream, the most expensive one in the market.

While Eating the Ice-Cream, Ravi asked”Were you aware when the thief entered your house”. “No I wasn’t aware of it……….I had gone to my Sis’s house and was there the whole evening. I came back in the morning ………I was about to pay the salary to the milkman, when I saw my cupboard whitewashed” She said, but she wasn’t sad about it………..”She was too rich to buy another 100 sets of jewellery if she likes so” thought Harish.”Can we investigate the site” said Abhijeet. “Of course!! darling” she said………….

“We started investigating the site but couldn’t find anything worth seeing. We checked the bushes, the plants, we checked every nook and corner of the house………but couldn’t find anything useful, we even checked the pipes and the surrounding areas” Harish Said. “I think the thief is too clever……….no wonder, even the police was unable to gather evidences” Abhi Added. Suddenly Ravi saw a person peeping into them………” It must be the thief” he shouted and raced after him, the rest also raced after him……As Ravi was very fast with his legs, the person was not able to outrun him. Ravi caught him and beat him black and blue…”Why are you beating an Innocent TRAMP” he said. ” Why were you peeping inside……….you must be the thief” Ravi said. “Hey Ravi!! don’t beat this poor fella!!, he is just a tramp” Abhi said. Now Ravi had a serious apology to make…….”I am….s.” but before Ravi could complete his word the tramp ran for his life………….

“You should be careful..you have beat the poor fella severely” said Abhijeet…..” I am sorry…..I got a bit excited” Ravi Said.Nothing more could be obtained from M.s Brown’s house…………so they gave Bon Voyage to M.s Brown and went  back to Aunts house.
