Let’s see what happened………
Pongo: Come on, open the box. Have you stolen anything?
Clem: No, I haven’t stolen anything. It’s my cat.
Pongo: A cat! I’m not a fool to believe you. Come on open it.
Clem: No, I won’t open. It will run away.
Narrator: First Clem refused, but after he opened.
Cat: Meow…..Meow…..I’m free at last.
(From the box the cat will come out)
Clem: See, I told you. (And will run after the cat)
Narrator: Pongo was stunned. Later Clem came back with the same box with an angry face. This time Pongo let him go. Poor Pongo. He doesn’t know that the second time Clem had actually stolen a Dutch cheese from the dock yard.
Narrator: Pongo continues checking. This time he caught Jonnathan, the delivery boy with something round bulging out of his pockets.
