because people speak English
This is insane am I a suspect now! I just can’t believe this is happening. I was trying to put on a tranquil face in the detective office, despite the uneasiness I felt. Now he is working on papers on his desk. Can’t he do this after questioning me? Waiting just makes me more nervous or maybe he is doing this on purpose?
Again I tried not to focus on his frightening figure. How anyone could think that I might steel Gingey’s candy? I wasn’t even any place around him when all this happened. I was studying in my room with Daisy. Daisy, my best friend her face was white when she walked out of the door few moments ago. I couldn’t find a chance to talk to her, because they called my name immediately after her exit. But when our eyes met hers were worried and troubled I think I read a hint of guilt on them. I don’t doubt her loyalty but she can easily slipped out during the negotiation and tell the detective that I have been out for few times when we were together. I started to clasp and unclasp my hands in nervous motions the detective glanced quickly at me and then dropped his eyes on the papers again. Perfect, I mumbled under my breath, now he will take it as a sign of guilt. Well, it is but the guilt I feel has nothing to do with Gingy’s candy. I feel guilty because if Daisy slipped out and told the detective then I have to admit where I was and what I was doing. I don’t want to; it’s embarrassing besides what Daisy would think about me if she discovered that I was sneaking out to take bites from my chocolate bar? I know it’s mean but I am a chocoholicand I can do nothing about it. I don’t like to share my chocolate with any one even my best friend. Oh God helps me I know what I have done was mean but it doesn’t compare to stealing. I may not share my things with others but I would never ever take theirs. Especially Gingy’s candy. For God sake why would I do it?? Yes I love strawberry but not as much as Nibs does. That braggart little thing. I tried not to be prejudiced but I wish the shrewd detective would find out it was him who did it. I enjoyed the idea for a moment and smiled to myself. He has got the motive- his strawberry weakness isn’t a secret anymore I have spotted him gazing passionately at Gingey’s candy several times I am sure others did too. Besides he speaks profusely about gingerbread’s morals and how a “good gingerbread” should be. Why on earth he keeps repeating this unless he is a fraudulent trying to look pious. I rolled my eyes in disgust. I doubt anyone knows him enough to ever defend him. Putting on those snobbish looks anyone hardly would speak to him. At this point I felt the detective eyes on me I adjusted myself in my seat, inhaled a deep breath and raised my head to face his penetrating gaze.
Thanks for reading. If you noticed I have tried to link my story with Nida's and Talibah's :)
