He stole my 50thousand dollars. he broke into my matrimonial

room

and made away with my money. He’s a thief” Mr. Richard said.

“It can’t be true.

let me call him” shantel tried calling him but mr. Richard stopped

her.

“That will not be necessary. No thief will ever admit that his a

thief,

unless caught red handed. oh, anyway I have called the police

to

arrest him and I swear this time. he will die in jail” mr. Richard

said

and walked out of shantel’s room along side with his wife.

shantel

went and sat on her bed thinking of what her father said and how to

help

Austin out. she stood up from her bed walking to and fro still

thinking.

“Never. Austin will not die” she put on her foot wears and left her

room angrily.
