<<<<The S & A Detective Agency>>>>
One morning as I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock I noticed something white laying on my desk. I stood up to get a better look at it. As soon as I got up I noticed that it was some snow that came through my open window. So I fell back on My bed. A few minutes later my mom came in and said that Simon was at the door. I told my Mom to tell Simon that I would be down there in a minute. After my mom left I quickly got dressed in my winter clothes and went downstairs. (BTW Simon is my best friend who I met a couple years ago). When Simon saw me he said:
"Hi Alminy, did you see the snow outside?".
I told him about the snow on my desk as we went upstairs to my room. when Simon saw the pile of snow on my desk he said we could just push the snow back out the window, so we started to push the snow back out the window but as I was about to push a lump of snow out the window Simon said,
"Wait! what's that?"
I followed Simon gaze at a small piece of paper sticking out of the snow. "Be careful. We have to pull it out slowly"
I said as we gently pulled the piece of paper out of the pile of snow. We tried to read what it said but we could only make out the word: "Water"
so we put it on my desk to let it dry, after that me and Simon went outside still puzzled. Then we heard a police siren ringing across town we were so puzzled about the piece of paper that we didn't pay attention to the siren or anything until a car nearly hit us, suddenly a strong hand grabbed us out of the road and on to the sidewalk. Once we got our breath back, the man asked:
"are you two okay?" We both said at the same time
"yeah we're okay." The man was big and strong he looked like he could be in a boxing match. The man said
"why were you two boys in the middle of the street? If I wasn't here you boys might of been run over!" We said we were thinking and didn't pay attention to the road. After that, the man left and me and Simon decided we should go to Roger's frosty's (BTW Roger's Frosty's a ice cream shop) anyway when we got there unfortunately it had a closed sign on it's door. But as we were about to leave Simon suddenly stopped and said "listen do you hear that?" We both stopped. I vaguely heard a ruffling inside the shop and then we heard a crash! After that we heard some voices and then it was silent. But as me and Simon went to investigate the matter we saw a head pop up from Inside, quickly we both ducked behind a bush. "Do you think he saw us?" Said Simon "No I don't think so." I said as I peered over the bush, The only thing I saw was a ice cream machine so I said "It's clear come on let's go to Mr. Riley's house and tell him what we saw" so we both left to Mr. Riley's house (BTW Mr. Riley is the owner of Roger's Frosty's) When we got there we rang the bell and then Jack the butler answered the door and said "Yes who is.. oh!it's you Alminy and Simon come on in!"
"What brings you to boys here?" Said Jack as we walked inside
"we came to talk about Mr. Riley's ice cream shop"
Simon said as we turned a corner and was in the hallway "are you two going to give Mr. Riley some more advice about what to put in his shop that other kids will like?"
"No not this time"
"hello Simon Hello Alminy what brings you two here?" Said Mr. Riley as we sat down. "We came to talk to you about your ice cream shop"
