Dangerous Money

Story Writing Class – 2nd August, 2012

The young man and woman walked along the footpath to the beach. They stood on the rocks admiring the sparkling sea and watched the ship passing by far out on the water.  Then they saw a man with a gun running along the beach.

The man put the gun between his teeth so that it wouldn’t get wet and jumped in the sea, swimming like a dog towards the boat. But after a few meters he stopped and started to yell, "I can't swim. Help me! Help me!”  They wondered what that man was doing with a gun in his hand.  This couple didn’t want to take a risk so they ran away and called the police.

After that, some police come to the sea and found the man and they tried to help him. They found out he was the most dangerous criminal who cannot swim. So the man was arrested

The police took Armand and Julie to the police station to interrogate them. They said they had never seen the man before but the police didn't believe them. They were convinced that Julie and Armand were helping the criminal.

The police chief asked them “Where did you put the money you stole?”  Armand and Julie asked the police to search for the witnesses and told them again that they didn’t steal anything.  Then, the police tried to find the couple who called them and tried to make them to be witnesses.

But after they interrogated the witnesses, the police kept believing that the couple were guilty.  They were put in a cell with another prisoner. That night, the prisoner told in his sleep the place where the money was hidden.   The next day Julie and Armand were set free, because the police couldn't find proof or witnesses who would place Julie and Armand at the scene of the crime.

The police planned to continue the investigation in more detail.  The police couldn't find the details after then, so one day, the chief of a police station became angered.

At that time, the couple wondered "What should we do, tell the police the things that they had heard from the prisoner or go there to get money because they are poor?” 

One day they decided to go looking for the money. They took the car and drove out of town. They arrived at an old abandoned house. They got in when a thunderstorm suddenly broke out.  They tried to carry the money out of the house in the dark. 

They tried to make money to keep that abandoned house. However, making money and keeping their house were hard for them.  Then they gave the money to the police station. That’s the money which the government used to build houses and support the people.

Finally they also got a new house and received a gift from government.
