0

As Both the sisters A.K.A Mrs. Slater and Jordan lived next to each other, Harish decided to pay Mrs. Jordan a visit first….so off he went to the destination, To “The Jordan Palace” as it was written on the signboard, however it looked nothing like it………….the garden was full of rotten cabbages and Pumpkins……………………………. the house had the plaster coming out of the walls…………….most of the windows were broken and overall it didn’t have much of a good appearance……………………… “I wonder what the thief got by robbing here!!” thought Harish as he entered the house.

He had a good escuse to enter her house…………..he was disguised as a plumber and looked no less than a real one… He went to the door and rang the door-bell.To his disappointment……..it was not working, so he decided to knock the door!! and so he did………..Knock!! Knock!!. but nobody came out…………….”Guess nobody’s home” he thought. He decided to go to the other house to try his luck.But to his poor luck nobody was present their either. Mrs. Slater’s house was the same as that of Mrs. Jordan…………..only the difference was that Mrs. Slater has rusted roofs too which was made of tin…………it looked more like a criminal house.

“Looks like I’ve got some time to sneak-peak” thought Harish. He saw the fact that he wouldn’t get any other better opportunity than this…………so he decided to get the most of it. He gatecrashed into the garden of Mrs. Jordan and began his hunt for clues. He got the same footprints they had found previously. The thief had stepped into one of the pumpkins and, so his footprint had been left there. He didn’t get any other thing of  interest so he went back to Slaters’ to hunt for clues………….this time he had found really something odd…….”a piece of paper”, but it was blank however his heart insisted to take it………he kept it inside his pocket. Suddenly he felt a hand touch him. It were  Mr. and Mrs. Slater………..Mr. Slater punched him and caught him by the collar. “Darling!! I think I’ve caught the thief” he said. “I agree” said Mrs. Salter. “I am not the thief ” Harish said trying to bide himself. “Then what are you doing here eh!!…………trying to outsmart me ” he said. Harish realized it was the best time to run and he pushed Mr. Slater with all his might and ran away……Mr. Slater tried to chase him but ‘how can an uncle catch a youth??’ As for Harish……………he ran to the nearest corner and ‘un-disguised ‘ himself and went back to Aunt’s. “They are more Slayers than Slaters” Harish thought on his way home. He decided to go to the chemists first to do something about his squashed face. The Doc Gave him some painkillers and an ointment.

“That was a neat escape………….better not to fall in it anymore” thought Harish.

Chapter 6 @ Abhi’s Task

Abhijeet Decided to visit Mrs. Franklin’s house first because the latest theft took place at her house……….so there might still be some evidences left, so off he went to the luxury home which belonged. “This is better than I expected” He said looking at the house….It was a four-storeyd building and looked more like a office building, it had large glasses instead of walls at the 1st floor. “She has the whole house whole to herself………when her hubby isn’t there!! Fancy Her!!” said Abhijeet and began to think of an idea to enter the house. He had a hundred rupee note, so he decided to try his luck with it…and he threw his rupee into the air and off it fell into Mrs. Franklin’s garden.”Lucky me” he said and rang the doorbell, which was on the gate.

Abhi pressed it and came aloud beep…………nobody came out of the house, but instead a voice came from the doorbell!! “Who are you and what do you want?” . Abhi realized that the doorbell had a microphone attached and the voice belonged to Mrs. Franklin. “I am Abhijeet, I am living at Mrs. Swan’s residence.”What do you want” came the voice from the doorbell. “My 100 rupee note has fallen inside, may I have your permission to collect it from you garden” Abhi said.”Oh! you may………just keep in mind not to destroy the plants or anything of that sort” she said. Abhi got the green signal and rushed into the garden.

As Mrs. Franklin was in the garden, instead of the room…………..So he had plenty of time to look for evidences. He knew where he had thrown the note and at once collected it from the spot and put it back into his pocket. He acted as if he was finding the note, but instead he was busy looking for evidences……….He went to the place where the drainage pipe was located……………he started looking all around it and all he found was:- NOTHING!!. “Oh!! I wasted my time” he said and decided to go to the next. He thanked Mrs. Franklin and went out of the house.

“Next Stop:- Mrs. Merry weather” said Abhijeet and started his journey……….He was feeling exasperated……….so he decided to have a ice cream cone and went to the nearest scoops parlor. He had a strawberry cone  and started towards Mrs. Merry weather.

Mrs. Merryweather wasn’t at home but her maid was generous enough to let him explore the garden. He started his search, and this time he got an early victory…………….he got a footprint which was identical to the sketch that Harish ‘Da Vinci’ had drawn. He has a xerox copy of it……………..so he got himself engaged in examining the footprints. “It Matched” he exclaimed happily……..Then he decided to search for more………………since the ground was wet he could clearly see the footprints. It looked like the thief came from the wall, ” he must have climbed up the wall and he must have went through this way” he thought and carefully noted down his observation.

He also saw some some footprints that had dried up and wasn’t clearly visible………..but his sharp eyes could see it clearly “So he climbed up this way………and did his work and came back the same way………………looks like my work here is done ” he said and went out. He went to the backside of the house and looked carefully at the wall and noticed carefully the footprints……….he followed the footprints to Mrs. Alfonso’s house but after that the footprints had disappeared.
