You, Leslie Young, have just retrieved the ancient staff of the island known as Barrio del Sol, met up with Mike, the man whose private jet crashed into the island, and are now going to sleep. Last night you dreamed of a memory from your childhood, and tonight you have another…

You were seven years old, and had just played Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" flawlessly. “How was that daddy?”

“It was the best thing I ever heard! You should be a professional piano player!”

“But I want to put the bad guys away like you do!”

“Okay, okay, but you might need to have a cover identity sometime.”

“What does that mean, a cover ‘idendiddy’?”

“A cover ‘identity’ is where you pretend to be someone else so you can get information to put the bad guys in jail.”

“Do you need a cover i-ten… i-dend… thingy?”

“Not now, but I have used one before, and I’ll probably have one another time. Now go get ready for dinner. We’re having pizza!”

“PIZZA!” Your dad, George Downs, always made the best pizza, better even than his Italian friends.

The phone rang, and George picked it up.

“It’s for you, ‘Princess’ Leslie. Don’t take too long or the pizza will be cold.” You took the phone.


“Hi Leslie! I got something for you!” Maggie, now your friend in the police, always called you when a classmate’s pet was missing, lost a necklace, or something else like that. This memory is of something bigger though. “Did you hear that Steven isn’t gonna be coming to school for a while?”

“Yeah, 'cause of that injury, right?”

“Well, I overheard my daddy saying, ‘The kidnapped child is in my daughter’s class.' Don’t tell anyone I told you this, but I think that Steven is this kidnapped child.” You heard a door close on her end. “Okay, tomorrow is good, so I’ll clean my room now. Bye Leslie!” You realized something at that second. Your dad only made his pizza on special occasions, and there was nothing particularly special on that day.

“I LOVE this pizza, daddy!”

“Why thank you, Princess. I even remembered to put that special topping on for you.”

“… I heard that Steven was kidnapped.” George and your mom, Regina, froze up and put down their slices. “That’s why you made the pizza, isn’t it?”

Your mom put her hand on top of yours, and tried to comfort you. “We didn’t want to worry you, dear, but we want you to help, since you two are such good friends.”

“Okay. I’ll help. What do I need to do?”

Your dad put his hand over your free hand and looked into your eyes. “I need to know that you can handle the pressure of a real case before I let you help. I was surprised you actually told me you knew he was kidnapped. Maggie’s dad actually let her overhear about that, so she would tell you. That was step one, finding out about the kidnapping. Next is for you to find out where and when he was kidnapped. I already know, but you need to be able to find things out without my help. Tomorrow after school, I want you to start investigating.”


The next day was a Friday, and school went as normal. The next week was spring break, and it gave you plenty of time to work on the case. After school, you started your investigation.




Walkie-Talkie (Maggie has the other)


The teachers might know something, and you can check out his desk.

What first?

As Leslie the police and the shopkeeper conversed, Leslie cut them short,

"There are drugs in that room" she pointed to the policeman.

The man went pale,

The policeman looked at her with unsurety. Getting tips about where drugs are from a seven year old isnt what they usually expect. But he knew who she was. The daughter of his boss. He smiled thinking of her in that prespective.

"Yes, in this room. In the box full of toys" Leslie emphasized.

The man was too shocked to speak.

Leslie went into the room, one policeman followed her. She pointed to him the box she had opened containing the white powder packs. The man rushed forward. Picked up one, examined it.

"Cocaine" he muttered, "Thats one smart girl"

The Giftshop man was handcuffed and was gonna be escorted to the police car, when Leslie stopped them,

"Ask him where is Steven?"

The policemen, throughtly aware of the issue felt a little stupid.

"Who Steven?" mocked the Shopkeeper. He knew he was gonna land in the jail but he wont give his enemy, the final satisfaction..

One of the policeman, throughly but quickly search the building. No sign of Steven...

Where policeman have failed, it was a job for Leslie....

She knew, Steven ought to be in the building..

The man was taken away and a policeman and Leslie remained in the building.

Steven was to be founded out..

I wont comment on your intuition

The very thing you have to mention, The action which led to it being revealed was suggested by "Bong"

Yay! I'm good like that!

She should check the nail or open all of the boxes.

Maybe she should ask a police officer to go with her? Either that or go armed.

The policeman had hastily but efficiently, searched the whole building... No sign of the boy.

But Leslie rather sat at one corner pondering...

pondering, where Steven could possibly be..

"The nail" she thought, "The nail have something to do with this", Leslie was sure.

She hurriedly went to the room, and the policeman, now thoroughly knowledgeable of the girls intelligence, followed.

It didn't took long for Leslie to find out the nail, and when she saw it, she noticed that there was change of colour in the floor in a square.

The policeman was noticing from behind, and suddenly exclaimed,

"Trap door"

He asked Leslie to be aside, as he pried it open, (with the crowbar of the Gitshop man..)

As he pried it, Leslie began to look around the room and saw a dark green bottle. She had a closer look.

"Whats this?" she thought.

She smelled it. Wierd smell.

"Where am I?"

Leslie opened her eyes and looked around..

"Ah yes I was in the Giftshop," she remembered, "Trapdoor!" she recalled the last thing..

She looked around again...

It was her room.

Her nice clean, cosy room. and she was on the bed.

"How did I get here" she thought.

She got up, and went to the lounge.

And was surprised to find Maggie and Steven with there parents there.

Her Dad too was there.

Maggie was the first to notice the Leslie entrance, and ran to her, giving her a big hug.

"Woken up atlast" she asked.

"O there you are, my little Princess" said Leslie's Father from the corner of the room.

"Getting kidnapped to find the kidnapper!" laughed her father, "What did you think you were doing".

Leslie mind, was still not completely clear, leave alone finding an unexpected Party at her house. So before she could make more of comprehension, another voice came,

"She is indeed a brave girl, I tell you Adam, " the voice was of the Stevens mother, "What she did for Steven, that was so nice" she continued.

"Only Brave Jayne? She is brave and intelligent," this time it was Stevens father, "Handling that man, uncovering trapdoors, finding drugs..."

Leslie, who still was still confused, now remembered that mysterious green tinted bottle, and so suddenly spoke up:

"What was that bottle" she said.

"Ah that," her father replied "That was chloroform, and I tell you, you have had enough of it to last a lifetime"

More Questions were asked, answers were followed.

Atlast his father spoke,

"Wont you like to play that Moonlight Sonata?"

Leslie who was now feeling a lot better, agreed.


Voices came from the 15th house on Barnis Street that day, from clinking of cups, to chatter, and finally into a melodious tune of Paino. The inhabitants were having a good day there. The sight became distant.


The Melodious Rhythm still rang in the air.


Leslie woke up. She got up, and looked outside the window. The silvery moonlight of Barrio del Sol was to view. All was quite. But from distant land she could still hear. Hear the tune.

The Melodious Rhythm still rang in the air...
