“My friends had nothing to do with this.”27Please respect copyright.PENANA1wWCqEYSCO
27Please respect copyright.PENANAZsszADVv9w
​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.27Please respect copyright.PENANASEJbTUPzCB
27Please respect copyright.PENANAAE8xgyceqP
“Then who had something to do with it, Amy?”27Please respect copyright.PENANA2qhvZS8Vni
27Please respect copyright.PENANArgWbrQ5hpI
“If I knew I would have told you.”27Please respect copyright.PENANAT0m1yDAKS0
27Please respect copyright.PENANAAUrRqrJzm6
“So…You are saying you knew nothing about this murder?”27Please respect copyright.PENANASOnPZOG556
27Please respect copyright.PENANANY6a0FNAqF
“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.27Please respect copyright.PENANAB0A3S1uBBR
27Please respect copyright.PENANAItF5iFTYKZ
“If anything, you were trying to knock the poisoned drink out of her hands. How did you know?”27Please respect copyright.PENANA4yYbIZRwAh
I was horrified. How could I admit…27Please respect copyright.PENANAcbiNfaPJMq
27Please respect copyright.PENANABuTgzcWtbH
“I didn’t…” I blurted out. “It was an accident.”27Please respect copyright.PENANAtgfssYrjv1
27Please respect copyright.PENANABIdUvs5lcR
“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.”27Please respect copyright.PENANALNlF4VS0p3
27Please respect copyright.PENANAHSkXlMVN6r
“He’s lying.”  I said. “He and I are not in the best of terms.”27Please respect copyright.PENANAPI92CFvH0H
27Please respect copyright.PENANAyMvUszPkze
“And why is that?”27Please respect copyright.PENANAoh7IetvagB
27Please respect copyright.PENANAC5jL7WrDEs
“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…”27Please respect copyright.PENANAkceP7HpW2Y
27Please respect copyright.PENANAbqgj9vMEG2
“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.27Please respect copyright.PENANAgi8A4gxwTb
27Please respect copyright.PENANAYdod3vUsrW
“Nancy wouldn’t kill anyone…And…We…I mean she doesn’t want to be my friend anymore.”27Please respect copyright.PENANArDnIWwdJbU
27Please respect copyright.PENANAMsdU3iaAO3
The Inspector raised an eyebrow. “Hasn’t forgiven you for seeing through him, huh?”27Please respect copyright.PENANALMh90lEUN6
27Please respect copyright.PENANARfJeXGLbpX
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?”27Please respect copyright.PENANA6bqj5tCg3q
27Please respect copyright.PENANAjPdAZdVE7J
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?”27Please respect copyright.PENANAKZZueXa09A
27Please respect copyright.PENANAXfLozRRb7V
“It was an accident.”27Please respect copyright.PENANACrLP2K2Yoa
27Please respect copyright.PENANAH9aHDoENoN
“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…”27Please respect copyright.PENANAnm39KD1CP9
27Please respect copyright.PENANAyrAjhC4jBt
“I am speaking the truth…I don’t know. I honestly don’t know anything about the murder.”27Please respect copyright.PENANAujCE0f2F3r
27Please respect copyright.PENANAtrNwAyaCaZ
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…”27Please respect copyright.PENANALJrl2IY72z
27Please respect copyright.PENANAAxSdbTseyw
​“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.”27Please respect copyright.PENANAG1Xtyy2Iac
27Please respect copyright.PENANAIVWahYSf6V
The Inspector didn’t back away but leaned closer and said. “Unless you start telling the truth…I will happily do just that.”27Please respect copyright.PENANAPGsITECmTa
27Please respect copyright.PENANASzbQ3Ko5ty
“What if I give you a certain truth the manager of this school wants to hide?”27Please respect copyright.PENANAibtelKde0j
27Please respect copyright.PENANAaQ0DyUhagb
This time the Inspector backed off. He glanced at me for a while and said. “What is this so called truth?”27Please respect copyright.PENANAl9Kx0NhoTK
“There was an incident in this school 2 weeks ago. Jolly…She was in the centre of it all.”27Please respect copyright.PENANAWbWqqibDwb
27Please respect copyright.PENANAXH1XkARCL8
“Interesting…”27Please respect copyright.PENANAN7ixEilWHf
27Please respect copyright.PENANAGDrD4RVfvs
“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…”27Please respect copyright.PENANArt9tqt3i5P
27Please respect copyright.PENANAqTWJrB1NxI
“Jolly…”27Please respect copyright.PENANA2emuRrlNGR
27Please respect copyright.PENANAf7kpALSE3Y
“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…“27Please respect copyright.PENANAuuSqdj2f6z
27Please respect copyright.PENANAY9OlDFMZss
“People believed her?”27Please respect copyright.PENANARIAb7bX0P0
27Please respect copyright.PENANAZjuRKIbMXh
“Jolly has a reputation of being the good girl. Except some of us…”27Please respect copyright.PENANAmVrag4Q24j
27Please respect copyright.PENANAvV1679h496
“How does your manager factor into this story?”27Please respect copyright.PENANA49qz0bhbXe
27Please respect copyright.PENANAtkaUvrZlu3
“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.”27Please respect copyright.PENANAEZZG56PmaY
27Please respect copyright.PENANAte8TO845k2
“And why would he do such a thing?”27Please respect copyright.PENANAkOnvJSWJeq
27Please respect copyright.PENANAMSqLzwRoT2
​“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…”27Please respect copyright.PENANAnmgvg4ElaY
27Please respect copyright.PENANAnvNL0wDWfR
“The Incident in the Physics lab happens.”27Please respect copyright.PENANAn2KNOjkGId
27Please respect copyright.PENANAI5zZAQ4ebe
“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…”27Please respect copyright.PENANAdzJ0kKxYGN
27Please respect copyright.PENANAQ4PASDUckC
“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.”27Please respect copyright.PENANAp2HZ1iP6x1
27Please respect copyright.PENANAkKA4LVOiTv
“Michel Sir said he’d expel anyone who tells you this story.”27Please respect copyright.PENANA5JzVjrzeET
27Please respect copyright.PENANAQ3Vx3XQS3n
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.27Please respect copyright.PENANATo7usTphbi
