It was a boring day and it was quite hot. Everyone wanted to dive into the pool but something happened. There was someone floating above the water and guess what, that person was my classmate, Edward. He was dead and everyone was shocked. We were wondering was it a suicide or a murder?

It was a boring day and it was quite hot. Everyone wanted to dive into the pool but something happened. There was someone floating above the water and guess what, that person was my classmate, Edward. He was dead and everyone was shocked. We were wondering was it a suicide or a murder? Luckily, we were not studying in an ordinary school, we were studying in a Detective School .Usually the policemen will give us 3 weeks to investigate before they interfere. We have seen so many kind of cases and I was the top detective in school. My friends and I were in the A-Levels and we had certificates for being professional detectives.

My friends and I went to his room and did an investigation. We found out that there was some blood on the floor. We called the crime scene investigators to take back all of his things and give a report as fast as possible. Well, we were hungry so we went to the canteen. We bought some sandwiches and sat down for a moment. Suddenly, I saw someone very suspicious. He was the chef and he had an argument with Edward two days ago before the incident. I followed him and quietly observed him. He was throwing a knife and the knife was full of blood. I shouted at him and he was surprised. He ran and I chased him. My friends heard my voice and immediately followed me. Unfortunately, the chef took a hammer and hit my forehead. I fainted and my forehead kept bleeding. My friends took me to the nearest hospital and luckily I was not injured badly.

  While I was in the hospital, my partners took the reports from the investigators. The report stated that the victim’s death was caused by a hit in the head and the weapon is mostly likely to be something heavy. The next day, I was out from the hospital. I thought that the chef might be the murderer but he didn’t had that weapon and he was very thin. So, I suspected that he murdered someone and I told my other groups to investigate. Now this is not the main point. We have to find that killer who killed my best friend. I was quite emotional when we could not find the killer yet I didn’t gave up.

  Soon, I found three suspects. First, his old neighbour- Jeffrey. He was always jealous of Edward. Second, his girlfriend,Natalie. She had a serious fight with Edward two days ago before the incident. Third, our Science teacher. He hates Edward because Edward never respects him and always argue with him. The whole situation had became very complicated and confusing. My friends and I collected all the information and started analysing. Later, Edward’s girlfriend came by. She said she was in Europe after the fight, and it proved that she was not the suspect. However, no one saw her went out of the boarding. She was out of the list for now. We went to meet Jeffrey in his house because he does not stay in the boarding. I went in to his house and I saw some dirt on the floor. I remembered before the incident, the floor near the swimming pool was quite dirty. We went into his room and he was very sick. His mum told us that he was having a high fever one week ago and he haven’t went out the house for quite a long time. I was feeling very confused and Jeffrey was out of the list now, I mean like right now. The only suspect left was our Science teacher. So, we decided to meet him tomorrow.

 In the morning, we had our breakfast. I bought a newspaper and started to read. While I was reading, suddenly I read a statement. I was like, OH MY GOSHHHH!!!! Our Science teacher is dead and his death was also caused by a hit in the head and it might be the same murderer. I was wondering was the Science teacher the accomplice or he was the eyewitness of the crime. Our Science teacher was found on a river side near our school last night and this time his hand was cut off. How do we know, because his hand was missing. The policemen can’t find the missing hand. It has been two days after the incident, and we still can’t really figure out. While we were thinking about the case, one of my partners found one clue in the victim’s shirt- I mean the Science teacher’s. There was a mark on his shirt, it was full of lipstick. The crime scene investigators told us that the brand of the lipstick was Calvin Klein. Now, we knew that the murderer must be a lady- I mean like for sure. I sent three partners to check on the records that who went back three days ago. Guess what, the only person who left was Edward’s girlfriend, Natalie. We were all wondering why did she lied? Anyway, it was time for actions. We quickly went to the boarding and arrest her. She told us that she was innocent. She finally told us the reason. She said she went out that day because she went to meet her new boyfriend and it was really before the incident. We even called her boyfriend to confirm everything. He said he sent her back in the morning when we found the dead body. But why did she lied?? She told us that she was afraid that everyone would know she was having a new boyfriend. The puzzle was finally solved. None of the three suspects were the murderer...

We have found a solution. The murderer was a lady and she must be very strong and tall. She might had a relation with Edward or she hated him. But who was SHE??? We need answers and FAST!!! We didn’t want to waste a minute so we quickly went to the scene to check for more clues. We were all desperately trying to find the murderer. Wait, my partners found some clues. A footprint near the river side, an earing and some torn paper bags. The earing was obviously very expensive and I recognised it as a limited edition, the brand was GUCCI. Now, this is something useful. However, why the paper bags?? The footprint was quite small. We went to the nearby Gucci outlets and we told them to bring out their limited edition’s records. We checked there are only two ladies who bought the earings. They were Madam. Christine and Ms. Isabella. Madam Christine was married to a rich man and she is 47 years old. While Ms. Isabella is single and she is super rich. She is from a rich family and she is the same age like me. It is obviously not Madam. Christine, you ask me why?? First, she has big feet, she is paralysed but her family loves her. So if a person is paralysed, how can he or she take something so heavy and cut off the victim’s hand.

 You guys must be thinking, “Wow, Mysterious!!!” Ok, back to the point. I sent some of my partners to check on and observe Ms. Isabella. We knew one thing that Ms. Isabella was very suspicious because she had a relationship with Edward but broke up with him two years ago. Everyone must be thinking,” So, what is the matter? Does it relate at all?? “ For your information, it does relate actually. (I will tell you later) So guess what we found in her house, a missing earing too but the problem is none of her shoes fit the footprint we found. So was there another corporate or more?? I was thinking,” It has been four days and not really any important clues…what are we going to do?” Suddenly something pop out of my mind, I mean like literally!! I thought that maybe Edward was the eyewitness of another murder case and maybe the chef and the Science teacher was the corporate of Ms. Isabella. We might actually solve this puzzle! Did you know why did I think about this because the chef and the Science teachers are brothers and they worked for Ms. Isabella few years ago. They obey her like she was the QUEEN.

Now, our Science teacher is dead so I assumed that the chef must be very scared and worried. I told them to check on him and give me a report ASAP!! The murderer is still out there and we have to protect our only witness and maybe the mysterious corporate too (I mean if we do know who she or he is…) Okay, straight to the point. After two days, we finally found some clues. The chef was contacting a man frequently and we managed to find his hiding spot. We were opposite his house and we heard all of his conversations. The Chef’s name is Alex and he is 27 years old. His brother (our science teacher) is David but we always call him Mr. Tan and he is 30 years old. Both of them worked for Ms. Isabella for 5 years before they came to our school however they were fired from Ms. Isabella due to some personal reasons. Alex was contacting a man and that man was Micheal. Micheal was Isabella’s new boyfriend and he is older than her by two years. Micheal is super rich too but he was not really suspicious to me. We continued listening and BINGO!! Here you go,” Micheal,my bro.. would you mind helping me? Your girlfriend is insane, she wants me to kill Edward but I rejected and now she is hunting for me. You gotta help me, man…!!!!” “ I can’t, she is my girlfriend but I can’t stop her from doing anything. Besides, I know is not only you who rejected her for killing Edward. You remember your brother, David. Rejecting her will never be the best decision..”

We quickly arrested Alex and Micheal but Isabella is no where to be found. We took them to the police station and told them to immediately arrest Isabella and freeze all of her accounts’ money. We finally solve one of our problems but if Isabella is still not found, then the case is not solve. We all went back to our homes to rest and have a good night sleep. While I was dreaming, I finally figure out where was the missing hand and all of the mysterious clue. I contacted my partners to follow me to the river side. I remembered there were torn paper bags and those bags were bitten by dogs. So, I told the policemen to follow me along with their dogs. I told them to sniff out the smell and we finally found the missing hand. The missing hand was buried near a small cottage and there were a lot of blood inside the small cottage. The crime scene investigators has proved that the blood belongs to David. Next, the blood in Edward’s room is actually not blood, is just tomato sauce. Now, the moment we have been waiting for. Everyone was thinking,” So what was the weapon?” Easy, the weapon was a rock because we found a rock in Isabella’s house. The rock was full of Edward and David’s blood. After two weeks, we finally found Isabella however it was her dead body. The investigators said that she died five days ago and we can’t arrest her for anything and we can’t find any handprints on her clothes or body. There were no marks or injuries so it was a very confusing and weird case. Anyway, the problems that we were facing were all solved now!! The policeman called me,” Detective Janet, we need you. Hope to see you soon.” I got to go and help with JUSTICE!! There will never be an end for my detective life…..
