The Suitcase

A writing competition for students

One gloomy evening, a mysterious, unidentified suitcase appeared in the local park. It was battered and left alone on the grass area of the park. Nobody knew how it got there, nobody knew what was inside. Until one day two boys found it and took it.

The boys names were Tyler and Billy. Billy was a very adventurous boy and was excited to open the suitcase but on the other hand Tyler was a very shy and scared person who was not looking forward to opening the case, but luckily he plucked up the courage to open it. When they lifted up the old lid of the case it made a loud creaky noise, which startled Tyler. In the case were millions of twenty pound notes. Tyler picked a stack of them out and noticed they were real.

The next day Tyler came round to Billy's house with a note. "I found it in the case. Go on read it," Tyler mentioned.

On the note it said, "The fortunes from the case belong to you finder."

"So that means we're rich," said Tyler excitedly.

One day something terrible happened. They got arrested for stealing the suitcase and the note was a fake so they had to spend one year in prison for that offence. When they were released two more boys came in.

"How did you end up here?" Billy asked.

"Apparently we stole a suitcase which didn't belong to us, but a note said that it was our fortune," said the toughest looking boy.

Who is this mysterious man getting people arrested? Will he ever be caught?
