“My friends had nothing to do with this.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAIOQ3Sz9A9q
13Please respect copyright.PENANAn7hw6ovEj1
​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.13Please respect copyright.PENANAw1r2b44BQj
13Please respect copyright.PENANAgy77C0GLBP
“Then who had something to do with it, Amy?”13Please respect copyright.PENANAcZXtv3S1Hb
13Please respect copyright.PENANA3ecugozl0p
“If I knew I would have told you.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAEhYMoAM5mn
13Please respect copyright.PENANAVymS2SWUUE
“So…You are saying you knew nothing about this murder?”13Please respect copyright.PENANA6YSjt9H2uH
13Please respect copyright.PENANAr8YpUn0Hsn
“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.13Please respect copyright.PENANA4nWrgZkdTe
13Please respect copyright.PENANAS0cLjFV1Hq
“If anything, you were trying to knock the poisoned drink out of her hands. How did you know?”13Please respect copyright.PENANAI9yHzt4Abx
I was horrified. How could I admit…13Please respect copyright.PENANAXgVUHcT2qM
13Please respect copyright.PENANAgiNt478Z8Q
“I didn’t…” I blurted out. “It was an accident.”13Please respect copyright.PENANApR0YyAsDaD
13Please respect copyright.PENANAb8T62BjVDJ
“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.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAIT1vn5Cw5K
13Please respect copyright.PENANAnuCnsaXUO8
“He’s lying.”  I said. “He and I are not in the best of terms.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAxZgr6j2peG
13Please respect copyright.PENANA8WAasXg5tl
“And why is that?”13Please respect copyright.PENANAQQPseiDccr
13Please respect copyright.PENANAkKrBbyUeY9
“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…”13Please respect copyright.PENANAU76uhysyEV
13Please respect copyright.PENANATuMJW11zdd
“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.13Please respect copyright.PENANA1yYt9a24p0
13Please respect copyright.PENANAdk7jOoShXw
“Nancy wouldn’t kill anyone…And…We…I mean she doesn’t want to be my friend anymore.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAcQ0ZzX0Axd
13Please respect copyright.PENANAOzMN2VX40n
The Inspector raised an eyebrow. “Hasn’t forgiven you for seeing through him, huh?”13Please respect copyright.PENANA4dHcxwBqNy
13Please respect copyright.PENANAW0oXZYV0zs
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?”13Please respect copyright.PENANAeo10b4W99W
13Please respect copyright.PENANAweadqHK17x
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?”13Please respect copyright.PENANAz4xY2xWXxv
13Please respect copyright.PENANAqLTsM5wIeG
“It was an accident.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAELUOZkwJlE
13Please respect copyright.PENANAgVIOTLlPJT
“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…”13Please respect copyright.PENANAl9EeBqk89z
13Please respect copyright.PENANAONkJCk383p
“I am speaking the truth…I don’t know. I honestly don’t know anything about the murder.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAMkkv8dgu3Z
13Please respect copyright.PENANAno91DLsXUB
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…”13Please respect copyright.PENANAwIpRs2bvae
13Please respect copyright.PENANAUXyftHtKbw
​“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.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAJyUTAxE3vy
13Please respect copyright.PENANAF1h5SJ74fh
The Inspector didn’t back away but leaned closer and said. “Unless you start telling the truth…I will happily do just that.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAiafRpIzSsK
13Please respect copyright.PENANAocjj6URLXm
“What if I give you a certain truth the manager of this school wants to hide?”13Please respect copyright.PENANAjDoBIhlPlA
13Please respect copyright.PENANA7ELmwa553y
This time the Inspector backed off. He glanced at me for a while and said. “What is this so called truth?”13Please respect copyright.PENANAQsL9MR4DC1
“There was an incident in this school 2 weeks ago. Jolly…She was in the centre of it all.”13Please respect copyright.PENANA0WEoynGTc2
13Please respect copyright.PENANAujHfGdqLiu
“Interesting…”13Please respect copyright.PENANAk9W5jIXnmA
13Please respect copyright.PENANApmw4L4rsYD
“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…”13Please respect copyright.PENANAutWbIDo9pH
13Please respect copyright.PENANADJQzP9iNxE
“Jolly…”13Please respect copyright.PENANAnW0U0MZreX
13Please respect copyright.PENANA5Iq2U9Fji4
“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…“13Please respect copyright.PENANA1VORvE1Orz
13Please respect copyright.PENANAsOvtIwgHYu
“People believed her?”13Please respect copyright.PENANAF3d567fLrx
13Please respect copyright.PENANAQstFjZjlNK
“Jolly has a reputation of being the good girl. Except some of us…”13Please respect copyright.PENANAUgyqKhW0YV
13Please respect copyright.PENANAuDYIJ4PYQg
“How does your manager factor into this story?”13Please respect copyright.PENANAwGJZl3YEoM
13Please respect copyright.PENANApj2XKMeHMd
“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.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAChRAZAFPzw
13Please respect copyright.PENANA65cP5yS4dh
“And why would he do such a thing?”13Please respect copyright.PENANAQCASAlEP2r
13Please respect copyright.PENANA2EITfHuVw4
​“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…”13Please respect copyright.PENANArC9Erfdjjq
13Please respect copyright.PENANAA93b1ExGtz
“The Incident in the Physics lab happens.”13Please respect copyright.PENANA7wePptwUo3
13Please respect copyright.PENANAYQF8u7nHrG
“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…”13Please respect copyright.PENANA81PcdRQKxk
13Please respect copyright.PENANAkEQytg20ar
“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.”13Please respect copyright.PENANA39hJhLQFth
13Please respect copyright.PENANAlBjbOx2FiA
“Michel Sir said he’d expel anyone who tells you this story.”13Please respect copyright.PENANAZCeQaI6cJh
13Please respect copyright.PENANAENrVwIHnoa
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.13Please respect copyright.PENANAEJMYVAvYgN
