So many thoughts suddenly popped up inside of my head; Who’s was it? When was it dropped? How valuable is it? Should I keep it? Should I put it back down? Should I investigate? I had no idea what to do with the lost wallet that was in my hands. After about a minute staring at the lost wallet, I finally decided to walk home, all with a surprised and scared look on my face. When I got into my room, I set the wallet down on my desk, and lay on my back on my bed, sorting through the options of what I could do in my head. I decided to call my friend Max, because he’s good at solving problems. I grabbed my phone out of my pocket and called him. “Hello?” I said once the ringing sound ended.
“Hey Ness, how’s it going?” He asked me. He sounded bored, so I knew that this would be quite an adventure for him.
“Can you come over, like, right now?” I asked. I needed him to come over as quick as possible, before the owner could go far.
“Sure,” he responded, “Let me just ask my mom real quick,” he said, and I felt relieved. Max was coming over! I needed some help with this wallet mystery.
“Sweet. I need some help with… something,” I said, excitedly. I hung up, and waited for Max to come over.
There was a knock on the door, and I went over immediately. I turned the metal knob, and in front of me was the one and only Max.
“What’s up?” I said, invitingly. I made a gesture for him to come in. He came in, and I had him follow me into my room. I picked up the leather wallet off of my desk and showed it to him. “I would like to find the owner of this wallet,” I told him, hoping that he would say yes.
“Of course! Nothing better than helping someone out. Let’s start investigating,” he said as he took the wallet from me. He opened it up and pulled something out and showed it to me. “Look!” He exclaimed, ”It’s an ID! We could bring it to the police station to see if they could track the person.”
I took the ID from him and looked at the information. Her name was Janet, she had short, brown, smooth hair and shiny crystal green eyes. “Well, let’s go then,” I said. Max doesn’t only solve things, he solves them fast. We got over to the police station in around 5 minutes. Max gave the man at the front desk the ID, and asked him, “Can you find out where this woman lives?” The man took the ID, and looked at it closely.
“Sure,” he said. He typed some things into his computer, each click bringing us closer to solving the mystery. When he was done typing he printed something out and gave it to Max.
“Here you go. It has the exact address of her house,” the officer said. I couldn’t believe it. We were almost done!
“Thank you!” Max shouted, as we ran out the door. We were going to find the woman.
With the paper, we were given a map so that we knew which way to go. We walked so fast that we practically ran to the house. With each step we knew we were getting closer to the house. After about 10 minutes, we had finally arriver at the house. I let Max get the satisfying feel of ringing the doorbell, since he had done most of the work. When he pressed the button, we first heard a ring, followed by multiple footsteps. A woman opened the door and said, “Hello there,” and I knew at first glance that it was Janet.
“We have your wallet ma’am,” Max said, with no hesitation at all. She took the wallet, opened it, looked at what was inside, and then smiled.
After that she said, “How would you kids like it if I said dinner’s on me?”
After Max and I talked with Janet for a little longer, we all went to dinner together at a burger place.
“I can’t believe you found my wallet!” Janet repeated so many times. I ate a delicious hamburger for free, because it was bought by Janet in return for the wallet. We all had a great time at dinner, and I’ll remember the day for as long as I live.
