Mystery at camp – Adventure
Late at night, both me and my friend, Swaimah heard strange noises outside. We peeked outside the curtains and tried to hear and see where exactly the sound was coming from, it was coming from the trees nearby our cabin. We tried to ignore it because we were tired and didn’t want to be sleepy the next day. (The following day) When we went to where we all were supposed to meet, one of our teachers had announced that their phone went missing late last night.
“Someone has come to my cabin and taken my phone and has it somewhere, if you know who it is or you are that person please return it to me.” The teacher had stared at our group for a while before turning back to the rest of the teams, did she suspect us as that “someone?” We had breakfast and went back to our cabins. “Did you see that?” Swaimah said, “The way she looked at us?” I said. “Obviously, she suspects us as the culprit without asking us any questions.” Swaimah replied.
“Do you think she saw us peeking outside thinking we took her phone?” I asked. “Well probably if she suspects us that much.” Swaimah said, we looked at each other for a while then we sat in silence. “I have an idea!” Swaimah exclaimed. “We should try and find her phone, and then maybe we can clear our names from being culprits.” Swaimah explained.
“Well, that would take a while, and after all it wasn’t our fault. We were just curious about what was outside.” I said, Swaimah and I sat in silence again, “We can’t just do nothing, she’s going to be looking at us all weird everytime we pass by, we have to find her phone and who stole it.” Swaimah said, “Fine, but if this fails it’s your fault.” I said, “Alright, let’s start with what we heard last night.” Swaimah said, “I heard the branches breaking, and birds calling. But I don’t know anything in particular about the noise, I was just curious since it annoyed me so much.” I said, “I saw a light flash in the trees nearby, and then I saw the branches move quite a lot but there wasn’t any wind blowing at the time.” Swaimah replied,
“Do you think someone framed us and told her purposely that it was us?” I asked, “Probably but we shouldn’t assume, maybe there were other reasons why she assumes us.” Swaimah replied, “Ok let’s start by planning how we might figure this out.” Swaimah replied, (A few hours later) “And there you have it, that’s how we can solve this!” Swaimah exclaimed. “Well, that does make sense but where on Earth do we have that much time to go around asking where people were and what they did last night, wouldn’t that make us more suspicious?” I asked, we looked at the paper, then at each other we fell back to the floor. “We aren’t going to be able to do anything about it if we don’t even have a plan,” I sobbed. “It’s fine, it’s nearly time for the first activity we should start getting ready.” Swaimah said, we both got up and started to put on our shoes and head to our first activity which was archery.
We started shooting arrows at the targets. We were quite bad and we kept missing quite a lot, we got better, eventually. I turned around to grab another arrow until I saw two girls walk past with something that was a reflection of the sun in their hands, could it possibly be the teacher’s missing phone? “Swaimah, look over there! That could possibly stop the suspicion from our teacher.” I exclaimed, “So much for all that planning,” Swaimah replied. “Hurry up, we need to spy on them to see if they actually have the phone,” I said. We both asked if we could go to the “toilet” and we tried to catch up to them, we found them and we hid behind a bush, “What’s the password?” Veronica asked, “I don’t know, I just grabbed it and ran off,” Vannesa replied.
“This is going to take forever, someone will eventually find out it’s us.” Veronica uttered, “It’s fine, because I already took a photo of those two girls from another cabin and edited it to look like it was them who took it,” Vannesa replied. “It was them, they just photoshopped us to look like we took it.” I whispered, Swaimah accidentally stepped on a branch and they turned around, we ran before they noticed we were hiding, we went back to the archery station and stayed there till the activity was over (obviously) we went to our teacher Mrs Hill and told her that it wasn’t us and it was in fact vanessa and Veronica.
