“My friends had nothing to do with this.”54Please respect copyright.PENANAyazRWfjBL9
54Please respect copyright.PENANA3Z74qmbnVl
​It seemed an eternity after the Inspector last spoke. But the clock on the wall told me it had only been 5 minutes. The ugly smile was still pasted on his face. He was waiting…Waiting for me to say something unfortunate.54Please respect copyright.PENANAaQ9bAbjRFh
54Please respect copyright.PENANAFese6puq0f
“Then who had something to do with it, Amy?”54Please respect copyright.PENANAz3fH8F3k3Z
54Please respect copyright.PENANAFdPOpq0IhG
“If I knew I would have told you.”54Please respect copyright.PENANA0XUtb0SFrT
54Please respect copyright.PENANAV0XaH5PLpT
“So…You are saying you knew nothing about this murder?”54Please respect copyright.PENANAK56AUw0Ufi
54Please respect copyright.PENANAAffvIrwB7X
“Yes…” The moment the word left my mouth, the Inspector’s face lit up. His eyes danced with excitement as he talked in length about me hanging around backstage.54Please respect copyright.PENANAu2YrdFx3rX
54Please respect copyright.PENANAWc23MXzNRO
“If anything, you were trying to knock the poisoned drink out of her hands. How did you know?”54Please respect copyright.PENANA6s4lXNNtpU
I was horrified. How could I admit…54Please respect copyright.PENANArTXpla5Sdw
54Please respect copyright.PENANAP9JSdwPMjH
“I didn’t…” I blurted out. “It was an accident.”54Please respect copyright.PENANABpaGL7tyBS
54Please respect copyright.PENANAt3Mqs7Ax0O
“Lawrence has already given his statement. He clearly says it was a deliberately done. I may not believe his wild claims but I have no reason to believe he’s lying about the facts.”54Please respect copyright.PENANA4QYNIbjyXC
54Please respect copyright.PENANAgz2qfNyJma
“He’s lying.”  I said. “He and I are not in the best of terms.”54Please respect copyright.PENANACPdpfFxQcx
54Please respect copyright.PENANAEhoC46NnFL
“And why is that?”54Please respect copyright.PENANA0Vl3mBRUkd
54Please respect copyright.PENANA4X3iniXU9a
“Nancy…She and Lawrence were…I didn’t like him. I tried to talk Nancy out of it but she wouldn’t listen.  Then after her accident…”54Please respect copyright.PENANAsNrQqwXdUD
54Please respect copyright.PENANAZUykYVVPPg
“His affections transferred from your friend to Jolly.” The Inspector finished. The implication of what I said hit me almost at once. I had handed him a sword to strike Nancy.54Please respect copyright.PENANA3Ue6cBpavy
54Please respect copyright.PENANAkYlMOMiM0c
“Nancy wouldn’t kill anyone…And…We…I mean she doesn’t want to be my friend anymore.”54Please respect copyright.PENANApZ7Yk5TfVI
54Please respect copyright.PENANAwYDK4Qlu0R
The Inspector raised an eyebrow. “Hasn’t forgiven you for seeing through him, huh?”54Please respect copyright.PENANA2lPo7Daqpa
54Please respect copyright.PENANADPaKNuQGKL
I nodded. “I know Nancy. She may have a hot temper but she would never ever resort to murder. Besides…Sir…Would anyone really murder over high school stuff?”54Please respect copyright.PENANApgK20OTmiT
54Please respect copyright.PENANAdle2JmGUN6
The Inspector laughed. The first non-malicious laughter I heard from him. “Girl…” He said. “I have seen murder and manslaughter happen for smaller reasons than high school drama.” Then in a more serious tone he added. “The best case scenario for you is that you somehow found out about the murder and was trying to stop it. But why didn’t you tell anyone instead of trying to clumsily knock the drink from her hand?”54Please respect copyright.PENANA5qVfaIK0ou
54Please respect copyright.PENANAMNLwQLlJ8E
“It was an accident.”54Please respect copyright.PENANADlZSoJe4D1
54Please respect copyright.PENANAaIr6YCOIDd
“The worst case scenario is that you aided one or both of your friends to commit murder…Either way…If you don’t start speaking the truth…”54Please respect copyright.PENANAcp1YWRKhBS
54Please respect copyright.PENANAWeeV7CFlHj
“I am speaking the truth…I don’t know. I honestly don’t know anything about the murder.”54Please respect copyright.PENANAnR2PY0sMI5
54Please respect copyright.PENANAZVv0TrSDJu
The Inspector stood up and walked round the desk towards me. “I am only glad to put you away for the worst case scenario.” He whispered threateningly. “Just give me a reason…”54Please respect copyright.PENANAwFJKBQmhb3
54Please respect copyright.PENANAAzVCpTCRGl
​“I didn’t do it. “ I said.  My heart was pounding rapidly inside my chest.  Coherent thoughts evaded my brain. “If you want to arrest me because you have a grudge against Dad…fine. Do it.”54Please respect copyright.PENANAWFhsGbTzPD
54Please respect copyright.PENANA3liM6UCsbO
The Inspector didn’t back away but leaned closer and said. “Unless you start telling the truth…I will happily do just that.”54Please respect copyright.PENANAwMoroNl1F1
54Please respect copyright.PENANAnBHF4oQXYG
“What if I give you a certain truth the manager of this school wants to hide?”54Please respect copyright.PENANAB12UO8OrB0
54Please respect copyright.PENANAg7MFzbsUd7
This time the Inspector backed off. He glanced at me for a while and said. “What is this so called truth?”54Please respect copyright.PENANAWAJDfN26L0
“There was an incident in this school 2 weeks ago. Jolly…She was in the centre of it all.”54Please respect copyright.PENANANn2PhRY6iz
54Please respect copyright.PENANA6zGTeg5Hai
“Interesting…”54Please respect copyright.PENANAP7SyK8mMf8
54Please respect copyright.PENANAN2vPSMGQSZ
“Our Physics Master, Roy Sir, and Mathematics Teacher, Linda Madam, were locked inside the Physics lab during lunch break. The one who locked them in was…”54Please respect copyright.PENANApZy5TNlYuw
54Please respect copyright.PENANAgjD8Sohebw
“Jolly…”54Please respect copyright.PENANAnYzSNrFuhx
54Please respect copyright.PENANAtGx1MrP8pj
“Yes, Sir. The Physics lab is on the topmost floor, isolated from the rest of the school.  Jolly…she…The things she accused them of in front of the whole school was downright disgusting….She was lying...but…“54Please respect copyright.PENANAFFDjOvH6KT
54Please respect copyright.PENANAC7Rb0FDF9U
“People believed her?”54Please respect copyright.PENANAdDBLEncuwB
54Please respect copyright.PENANANchrv6WdcH
“Jolly has a reputation of being the good girl. Except some of us…”54Please respect copyright.PENANA6PPY0PEEvO
54Please respect copyright.PENANAyIr9u6xGA4
“How does your manager factor into this story?”54Please respect copyright.PENANAhogzPMFMZR
54Please respect copyright.PENANAt5Gj4H9IlE
“He put her up to it. There is a reason Jolly got picked for scholarship and won nearly all the prizes for the youth festival. Also…Her father is the manager’s dear friend.”54Please respect copyright.PENANAwUnX4R4CyE
54Please respect copyright.PENANAGQ2XpRJ4DI
“And why would he do such a thing?”54Please respect copyright.PENANAW7ODrTlABG
54Please respect copyright.PENANAf8BC6Fuah2
​“Linda Madam…” I said slowly. “He…She told her brother, Benjamin Sir, about how he was stalking her and harassing her. There was a huge fight in the school office and…almost 3 days later…”54Please respect copyright.PENANAOYSRViIFnm
54Please respect copyright.PENANAojudWV6iwI
“The Incident in the Physics lab happens.”54Please respect copyright.PENANAYLQAoXfT7x
54Please respect copyright.PENANAWWvPNr7w7u
“After that…Jo from the shop came and attacked Roy Sir, claiming to be Linda Madam’s lover.” I saw the Inspector frown but he did not interrupt me. “Then we heard that Roy Sir’s wife left him and…”54Please respect copyright.PENANASvOnILjO3P
54Please respect copyright.PENANAw2BnC0kSTr
“Looks like the girl had plenty of people around her who would willingly cut her throat.” He mumbled, darkly. Then, looking at me, he said. “Girl…You have been more than helpful to me today.”54Please respect copyright.PENANApQoVFbnNHu
54Please respect copyright.PENANAhAZ6XIRhwU
“Michel Sir said he’d expel anyone who tells you this story.”54Please respect copyright.PENANA73XIqzJKrD
54Please respect copyright.PENANAcRtAN8MaVt
The Inspector’s expression darkened. “I wouldn’t worry too much about that if I were you.” He said. There was a hint of a smile on his face.54Please respect copyright.PENANAFd4Fj2nbjT
