“Pete, your left arm is hurt. What happened?” asked Safora.

“I collided with a suspect and he fell on top of me, he is such a giant. But don’t worry, Safora. I’ll tell you more about it later, now we are going to Miss Hong’s house to check her doors,” answered Pete.

When they arrived at Miss Hong’s house, they saw a group of policemen around a wooden shed at a corner of Miss Hong’s garden. A few minutes later, a police officer arrived in a police car together with three other policemen. As he walked through the gate, a policeman ran to meet him followed other policemen, leaving two policemen to guard the locked shed.

“Sir! We saw a glimpse of something orange and furry running into the shed and now it is locked! We are trying to get the door open but we have to be careful because we do not know what the yellow thing is. It could be a lion…,” said the policeman to the police officer. 

“A lion?” asked the police officer as he rushed to the shed followed by the policeman. “We’ll see what we ca….”

“Ouch!” shouted a policeman who was guarding the shed as he was pushed to the ground.

Before the police officer could finished his sentence, a brawny man popped out from a big bush next to the shed, pushed a policeman who tried to stop him, sprinted towards the shed and kicked down the wall of the shed. A part of the wall crashed, leaving a big hole in the wall.

Suddenly something that looked like a lion crawled out from the hole. When the thing stood up, they realised that it was not a lion but a heavy-set man in a furry, orange lion costume. The two strong suspects ran towards the fence, pushing away the policemen who tried to stop them. Another man jumped down from a big apple tree near the fence, and the three men jumped over the fence and ran to a big ice cream truck. They went in the truck and immediately drove away leaving the stunned policemen behind.

“Wait,” said one of the policemen. “They are driving towards Mr. Pete’s house!”

He immediately called the police chief and told him to block the ice cream truck with a registration number of REX3541. Pete, Mic, Safora and Reen ran after the truck together with the policemen. As they approached Mr. Pete’s house, they saw the ice cream truck in front of his gate.

The policemen blocked the road with two big police trucks that had just arrived at Mr. Pete’s house, and surrounded the area so that the gang members could not get away. They caught the three men and hand cuffed them before taking them to the police truck. The police chief and his men opened the door at the back of the truck to investigate, and to their surprise, they found wooden doors instead of ice creams in the truck.

The police chief drove the children to the police station and called their parents to tell them what had happened. The police recorded the children’s statements about the kidnapping and the children showed the police chief their notes and told him what they knew about the case. When their parents reached the police station, they were so happy to see that the children were all right. Before they leave the police station, the police chief thanked the children for helping the police to solve the mystery of the missing doors.

After interrogating the gang members, the police identified the gang’s leader as George Gampore Jr. or also known as XYZ. The gang members admitted that they had stolen all the doors and told the police where the doors were kept. They also told the police that they planned to export those beautiful wooden doors to a neighbouring country where wooden doors were very expensive because the country was over forested until there was no timber in the country to make wooden doors.

“Well, children,” said the police chief. “Thank you very much for helping the Woodsland Police to solve this case. Now I am going to give everybody a special reward!”

Pete got a pocket camera while Safora was rewarded with some nice notebooks and pens. Mic was very excited for he got a fingerprint detector and Reen was very proud of his new set of spying gadgets.

“Well, congratulations for solving the Mystery of the Missing Doors, PeforaMeen Solvers”, said the police chief with a big smile.

A police officer was injured during a Black 505 illegal demonstration in front of the Parliament of Malaysia today.

Please read: BLACK 505: Photos Of Black 505 Demonstrators At The Parliament

I hope that the demonstrators will grow up and stop disturbing our peaceful country.

And I also hope that foreign reporters will report fairly and understand our values and respect the fact that the opposition had lost the general election.

I wonder if any foreign reporters ever report about the violent actions of the demonstrators in order to provoke the police so that they can claim police brutality.

Mic rushed inside, running to the dinning room. “Reen, Safora!” he shouted. “Pete’s calling for you. Come on!” He ran outside followed by Reen and Safora.

“What happened, Pete?” asked Reen as Pete looked at some footprints on the dirt of the pathway.

“Reen, Safora can you see anything wrong around you?” asked Pete as soon as the two children reached the spot where the front door used to be.

Safora looked around her and suddenly she shouted, “Oh, no! The door is missing”. She looked at Miss Nyla and asked her, “Miss Nyla, what had happened to your front door?”

Miss Nyla was too stunned and upset to talk. Pete and Safora took Miss Nyla to their house. Their mother made a cup of hot strawberry tea for Miss Nyla to calm her down. And while Miss Nyla drank her tea, Pete’s mother called the police.

While waiting for the police, the four children tried to inspect the area where the incident happened. Pete gave Safora his camera saying, “Safora, Reen please snap some photos of the footprints and try to investigate them further while Mic and I look for more clues.” 

They were very careful not to touch anything around the area as they do not want to disturb any clue or evidence left by the suspect. Then Safora checked all the other doors to make sure that they are not missing.

When the policemen came, they asked the children what had happened and they took some photos of the foot prints that the children had inspected earlier. Later the policemen went to Pete’s house to interview Miss Nyla about her missing front door. After the policemen left, Safora helped Miss Nyla to locked all the other doors at her house while her father called a carpenter to get Miss Nyla a new front door.

Ten minutes later, Pete brought a piece of wood inside a zipper storage bag to the small table out side Mic’s house where the others were already waiting for him. “I only found this clue,” he said. “I think this piece of wood came from the missing door. And there is a fingerprint on it. I found it on the pebbles in front of Miss Nyla’s house after the policemen left the house. But it is very hard for us to find out whose fingerprint is on this wood. Mic, can you please take this clue to the police station and ask the Constable if he knows whose fingerprint it is? And don’t forget to tell him that you’re from the PeforaMeen Solvers. I’ll go home and call our friend, the police chief to tell him about our new mystery. May be he can gave us some advice on what we should do.”

“Right, Pete.” said Mic. “I’ll go with Safora just in case anything happens. Reen, you better go inside and drink some water. I can that see your lips look too dry.” So, the four children left the table and separated into different directions to do their own jobs.

Mic and Safora ran towards Pete and Reen, followed by some policemen. The police chief of the district came along and Pete told the chief about what he saw in the woods. The chief looked at the photos carefully and explained a plan of how to arrest the three suspects to his men. Then they carefully went into the woods with Pete leading the way.

The policemen surrounded the area and caught the three suspects while they were busy cutting down another big tree. The three men were too surprised to run away. The police took the suspects to the police station and they will be taken to court the next day. The police chief was so proud of Pete, Mic, Safora and Reen. “Well done, children, especially you, Pete. All of you have done a great job. I am very proud of you. You have saved the valuable trees in the woods,” said the police chief, “And thank you for helping the police.”

Pete looked at the police chief and said, “But sir, please look at this hand prints.” Pete showed him the photo of the hand prints that he had snapped in the woods. “I snapped these photos around the area where the tree were cut down; but none of the suspects has pointy thumb as in these hand prints.” The police chief looked at the photos and told Pete to take them to the place where the photos were snapped. When they reached the location, a policeman asked Pete when did he snapped the photos and some other questions regarding the matter.

Suddenly the policeman laughed softly, “Excuse me, sir. But I think I can solve this mystery. A day before Pete and his friends came over here looking for clues, John and I came here to inspect the woods. John tripped over and fell down to the ground. Actually that week he was too busy that he forgot to cut his finger nails and the nails were pointy and that made the pointy thumb hand print.” They looked at each other and everybody started to laughed.

Then the police chief  said, “It’s getting late now. Come on children, I’ll send you home.” On the way they excitedly talked about the mystery and the police chief suggested that they look for nice name to call their team.  Pete though hard and at last he came with an idea to mix their names together into PeforaMeen Solvers.

The chief gave everybody a present, a special note book together with a pen with the police department logo on them. The kids thanked him and they were so proud of their presents. The police chief told their parents about what had happened and their parents were really proud of them.

Pete was proud of his team for being able to solve the mystery and saved the trees in the woods. Pete love the nature, the trees, the plants and the animals and he understood that it is very important to take care of the environment. That night the children talked about the mystery with their proud parents.

The next day, after breakfast, Pete saw a newspaper on the dinning table. He was about to pick it up when he saw a headline on the front page, ‘Peter Alfonso and his friends saved the Woodsland’s woods.’ Pete rushed to his sister’s room to show her the article, but half way to Safora’s room the phone rang. Pete rushed to answer the phone.

It was the police chief. He called to tell Pete about the article in the newspaper and to invite Pete, Safora, Mic and Reen to a special ceremony to thank them for helping the police at the police station on the next day. He also said that he would like to officiate the PeforaMeen Solvers at the event.

After he put down the phone, Pete rushed to tell the good news to his sisters and the other team members. That night they were too excited that they could hardly sleep!

The next morning, Pete saw a police car with the chief, Mic and his little brother Reen coming towards his house. Pete called out for Safora and they said goodbye to their mother. The chief was taking them to the police station for the special ceremony and their parents will be there later. Rupert was there too. He thanked them for saving the trees and asked for their parents’ permissions to take the children to the woods to teach them about the wonderful plants.

Reen asked Pete, “Pete, since this mystery is solved, will there be any more mystery for us to solve?”

“I hope so,” said Pete. “I hope that there will be more mysteries for us to solve in the future.”
