The kids insisted on playing hide and seek while Peter didn’t want to since one of the kids had broken their legs while playing hide and seek last time. In the end on a lot of insisting by the kids Peter agreed but warned them not to do anything mischievous since the kids are very naughty and always end up doing some kind of prank. However, Peter began.
“Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One”
Hide and go seek was the order of the evening. The non-stop rain with no signs of stopping meant mud, mud and more mud. Peter already knew where the kids were. They always hid in the same place together just like twins stick together.
“Where could they be?” he said talking to ...view middle of the document...
“I am not playing anymore.”
A minute passed and the panic set in. Peter was now petrified. He had no clue where to find them. He went downstairs fussing and murmuring “Where could they be? They never do this, how can they do this with me?”
As he went downstairs he saw the main door wide open. He knew he’d locked it. He was very obsessive about locking the door and checked it at least twice every time.
He went inside and called the police. Peter wasn't thinking clearly.
“Yes I need help, my children are lost" he said in a panicked voice.
“Is there anyone or any place you think they can go?” asked the police officer
“No, there's no one they can go to and they are too young they don’t know about the places well" said Peter
“Don’t worry sir; we'll find them as soon as possible" consoled the police officer.
Till the time the police officer came Peter went on searching for the kids all over the house once again but he wasn’t able to find them.
The police officer came.
"Do you have any idea where they could they be?" asked the police officer
"No, I can’t understand where they can go? I warned them as well not to be mischievous" said Peter angrily.
The police officer searched the house first and then went outside to look for them at nearby places.
To his surprise he saw the kids playing on the slides in the park opposite Peter's house
Peter and the officer went to them hurriedly
"Are you two in your senses?" screamed Peter
“I’ve been searching you two since an hour, how could you come out of the house without informing me?" Peter said angrily
“Your mischievousness would lead to some big problem one day” said Peter
The kids were really frightened looking at their dad’s anger and promised not to repeat this again…
