The Mystery of The Missing Cell Phone

Jeffrey lives in North Hampton, NH on Hobbs Road. North Hampton is a quiet, safe, and beach town. Jeffrey doesn’t know his neighbors very well, but everyone seems pretty nice. Jeffrey works at Bob’s Burgers, in Portsmouth, NH not too far away from his house. He works with Bob, and a few other employees who are all pretty nice. Bob even lets him leave early some nights when the burger place is slow. 

It was 10:30 pm on a Wednesday night when Jeffrey left his job at Bobs Burgers. Bob let him out early to go home. Jeffrey brought home a burger from work. When he got home he ate so much that he went straight to bed and fell asleep. At 11:15pm Jeffrey woke up to a loud noise. He went over to his window and saw nothing so he climbed back in bed. At 11:35 pm he woke up to another loud sound, and went to the window to see a trash truck driving bye. Jeffrey climbed back into bed and quickly heard another loud sound that made him jump up. It was just a dump truck passing by because his road was getting fixed. Twelve minutes later he heard a loud noise again, this time there was nothing outside of the window. Jeffrey decided after hearing four loud bangs to go downstairs.

Jeffrey’s dog was in the kitchen snoring. He checked out the kitchen and didn’t notice much, except how badly he wanted to eat one of those cupcakes on the counter. He heard the noise again in the basement and wondered if it was his cat. He headed towards the basement and all of a sudden he saw a man running out of his front door from the upstairs. Jeffrey’s dog woke up from all of the noise and chased the man outside, but he was  too slow. All Jeffrey found was a cell phone on the ground and footprints in the mud.

When Jeffrey heard the bangs, and came downstairs to see someone running out of his house, he had no idea who it could be. Jeffrey’s dog did run after the person, and can talk to humans, so hopefully he knows more.

Jeffrey’s dog did see the man’s face quickly. He ran up to Jeffrey and talked to him. He told him what the man’s face looked like. He described the man with short hair, a mustache, and Jeffrey thought it was Bob but wasn’t sure so he asked the dog if his other pets could talk and surprisingly they could talk to. They also saw the Bob’s Burgers key card so the next day Jeffrey asked Bob if he was at his house last night. He said no, but he was obviously lying to Jeffery. Bob told Jeffery that he was home all night.

Jeffrey worked his shift that day, wondering why Bob would lie to him about being in his house. He also didn’t know why Bob would steal his cell phone. At the end of his shift he decided to confront Bob one last time. Bob was sitting in his office when Jeffrey walked in and saw Bob on his missing cell phone. Jeffrey caught him red handed with what he had stolen. Jeffrey asked Bob why he lied and why he stole the cell phone. All Bob had to say for himself was that he really wanted it, and did not have enough money to get one like his.

Bob handed over Jeffrey’s stolen cellphone. Bob learned his lesson because he got put into jail for 7 years for breaking into Jeffreys house.
