Not the Whole Truth

Miss Sealan grabbed the feeding bucket on her way out of the back door.

Suddenly, she stopped.

It was the ax in a dead chicken.

She came closer to see the details; it was the same ax that sat in her office on the first floor. The chicken was missing one foot...

She dropped the feeding bucket and hurried inside. She came to a stop when she saw the ax in her office gone. Immediately, she went to the dining room, where the blind children were having breakfast.

"I'd like to see Daniel in my office, now," she announced.

Her voice echoed in the lasge room.

Daniel came slowly, following the wall on his way in. He sat down.

"Yes, Miss Sealan?"

"This morning, as I was on my way to the chicken coup, I stopped. I saw the ax from yesterday's incident in one of our chickens. In fact, it was the same one that had lost its leg. Did you have anything to do with-with the killing of one of the school's chickens?"

There was a pause.

"No, ma'am."

"Hmm, then you may go back to your breakfast."

To be honest, Miss Sealan believed him. He was a good student along with being a good boy. Never once broke the rules. 

Now the neighbor's children, on the other hand were horrible little devils. Surely, it was them.

The End
