Answer :

‘A strange fellow with a strange plan’


Once upon a time, Gerrard, the playwright was alone in his cottage busy packing his bags for a relaxing holiday at the countryside. But to his amazement, an intruder silently entered his cottage armed with a revolver. Although his purpose to enter Gerrard’s cottage was unclear; Gerrard still managed to stay calm and cool in his presence as he was busy taking a call. On seeing the intruder, Gerrard was asked to sit still at one place. Then as their conversation progressed, the intruder revealed that he was a jewel thief. He further told him that he had killed a policeman and therefore the police was after him. In addition to this, he told him that due to his criminal record, he further wanted to kill Gerrard and take on his identity by which he could get away with the police and lead a normal life. However, Gerrard very cleverly concocted a story and told him that he too was a criminal and already had planned of running away. He also told the intruder that by killing him, he would be accused of double murder and as a proof, showed his traveling bag.


Further weaving the story, Gerrard told the intruder that his friend was standing on the nearby road, waiting for him and as soon as the police arrived, he would inform him. Now, in order to fully convince him, Gerrard took the intruder to the door to show the man. But as soon as they reached near the cupboard, Gerrard pushed him inside and immediately locked it from outside. Screaming and shouting, the intruder pleaded him to take him out of the cupboard but Gerrard very smartly took advantage of the situation and called the police and finally got the strange intruder arrested for his deeds.
