The missing jewels (A Whodunit)

THE MISSING JEWELS

This is a short whodunit (a detective story). Read the story and take a look at the drawing carefully to recognize the thief.



BETTY: She put the jewels on the table in the living room. She heard the phone ringing so she picked it up.  When she returned to the living room the jewels were gone. She screamed and everyone ran into the living room.
ANTONIO: He was taking a shower. Everyone heard the sound of water.  When Betty screamed, he ran into the living room.
MARCEL: He was in the kitchen preparing dinner.  When he heard Betty scream, he left the food and ran into the living room.
CINDY: She was sleeping in the bedroom. She didn't hear Betty scream so she just kept on sleeping.
LOUISE: She was in the library doing paperwork. When she heard the scream she came into the living room.

WHO DID IT? WHO STOLE THE JEWELS? Look at the bottom to check your idea.

We took our bicycles, but I had a flat tire so I had to walk. I thought it couldn't be worse but then it started raining again. I waited under the tree and yelled to others: "Wait!" They didn't hear me. It was getting dark. I turned back and went home. Next day, when my family came home, I remembered that we are going to Italy. I grabbed my luggage and ran to the car. When we arrived to the hotel, I wanted to put my things out of my suitcase, but it was completely empty. I forgot to pack my things at home! I jumped on bed and wanted to sleep, but our neighbors were so loud. I p…

My day

My day I get up at quarter to seven. I dress up. At seven o'clock I have breakfast. Then I brush my teeth and put on my jacket. At twenty past seven I go to school with my brother and sister. We take the bus. Lessons start at eight o'clock. We finish school at half past twelve or quarter past one. I do my homework. I don't play tennis or basketball, but I go to dance class. I have dinner at half past seven. I have a shower at quarter to eight. I go to bed at nine o'clock. I read a book then I go to sleep.
