The Mystery of the Missing Door (Chapter 4: Suspects)
As Pete and Reen was approaching the man, suddenly a fat, dark haired man came out of nowhere and tried to snatch the huge piece of flat wood from him. It was something like watching a dramatic crime scene in a movie as they witnessed the fat, dark haired man chasing a tall man who was carrying a very huge piece of flat wood. The tall man ran towards the beach followed by the fat, dark haired man.
It was amazing how fast the tall man could run while carrying the huge, flat wood on his back. The fat, dark haired man could not chase him for he was too exhausted as he was too heavy. As soon as he reached his truck, the tall man put the huge flat wood into the back of his truck and drove away. The fat man hopped on a motorcycle and followed him.
Reen and Pete ran after him as fast as they could, but the motorcycle was too fast for them to catch up. They sat down on a bench drinking a bottle of water while thinking of what else they should do. They waited for a few minutes, hoping the man would come back so that they could interview them.
“So the mystery of this missing door is not yet solved,” said Pete. “There’s too much things to do, too many questions to be answered and too little clues to answer the questions. But at least we have our first suspect who looks kind of nice, but nervous when we tried to talk to him. What do you think, Reen? Could he be the one who stole the door?” And before Reencould say anything, Pete continued, “Come on Reen, let’s go and search for Safora and Mic.”
And so off they went, leaving the bench behind them as they searched for their friends. On their way, they met a very suspicious looking man and they tried to interviewed him.
Pete whispered, “Reen, I’ll try to talk to him and ask him a few question. Please do not say anything about us trying to look for the person who stole Miss Nyla’s door.”
“Hello, sir. How are you? We are making some research about doors. Can we ask you some questions, please? The first question is, what do you like about doors?” asked Pete as they approached the man. He was tall and thin with straight, brown hair.
“Doors?” asked the man. “Doors are very nice, they could keep our house away save from burglars.”
“Do you know how to take out a door from its frame?” asked Reen.
“Stealing a door?” he asked. ‘Why must anybody steal a door? That is a weird thing to do,” continued the man as he quickly walked away saying, “It’s getting late, I have to catch the train and I think it’s time for both of you to go home.”
“He looks very suspicious,” whispered Pete to Reen after the man had walked away from them. “And he mentioned about stealing when we did not say anything about it.”
Suddenly they saw the first suspect walking not far from where they were standing. They ran to him, hoping to ask him a few questions. He seemed to be talking on the phone to someone. As they almost reached him, he turned away, ran to his truck and drove away. Pete and Reen went running home to tell the other members of PeforaMeen Solvers about their interesting adventure that evening.
