The Unforeseen

Extracts from this document...


'The Unforeseen' Over the past ten years, I have not yet become accustomed to the phenomenal approaches that my partner, Sherlock Holmes, uses to extract deductions and then eventually become able to decipher the case submitted to him, but instead, I am still as perplexed as I was, when I first began working with him. Holmes's dedication and perseverance towards his work has become more intense as these years went by which has helped him to improve his understanding of the dense human mind to such an extent that it is impossible for anything to go by without catching his eye. Though within all these years, Holmes has not been asked, until now, to investigate into a situation, which involves the death of his own friend, Mr. Delson. Sitting on his usual spot near the fire, with his pipe dangling from his mouth, Holmes sunk back into his seat and spoke to me about the recent events that took place yesterday evening, while waiting for the expected client, Miss Delson. 'My dear fellow, after the death of Mr. Delson yesterday evening, the chaos that has built up was surely sudden and within the next week or so, his company will close down,' jabbered my partner, whereas, I just sat and listened to the talk he had to say, not actually understanding the point of the conversation. ...read more.


'But now, I would need to ask you some questions in order to enhance into this case and as well as confirm my inquisitiveness,' proceeded Holmes, 'how long has it been since Mr. Cadet threatened Mr. Delson?' 'Oh, it has been almost two weeks now,' replied Miss Delson, almost instantaneously. 'Where were you at the time of the murder?' inquired Holmes, without pausing. 'I was at a gathering, around five 'o' clock, which would be the time the murder took place. To be more precise, I was at 'Night Club,' a place I usually meet up with my friends,' answered Miss Delson, after giving herself a moment of thought to the question. 'Is Mr. Cadet in town right now, or is he not?' questioned Holmes. 'To the extent that I have been informed, Mr. Cadet is not present in town. I assume he had left last night,' replied Miss Delson. 'Ah, I see,' whispered Holmes, though he seemed to be talking to himself. 'How had Mr. Delson died?' asked Holmes. 'He was burnt along with the whole house,' responded Miss Delson, and despite the fact that it might seem quite queer, Miss Delson finally let out her first teardrop. 'I suppose this is it then. Miss Delson. I will go to inquire the house and I suppose, right now would be an appropriate time to do so,' said my partner. ...read more.


She had bloodstains on the shoulder of her coat this morning, which at first I thought would have been something else, as she seemed concerned about her stepfathers' death. Right?' I continued contentedly. 'She also seemed to answer every one of my inquiries in favour of it. Therefore, it was highly perceptible that everything she said was false, as nothing comes into somebody's head in a natural flow. Moreover, this is a fact, as I am greatly knowledgeable in these sorts of things,' said Holmes, now smoking his pipe strongly, with the contentment of succeeding in yet another case. 'In addition to what I have just said, the tear that was apparent after a long while into conversing with Miss Delson, was not for the love of her father, but the guilt, as she knew, that I was very close into figuring out that the suspect was her. Though, after all the plans she made to murder her stepfather, the most obtuse thing she did, was come up here herself, in order to make herself appear the innocent next victim, but eventually she got caught...' continued Holmes, ' Now, I think it is time for us to call in Miss Delson, and arrest her.' 'That was a job well done, my partner!' said I cheerfully. 'I agree with you Watson!" said Holmes. Later the next day we called Miss Delson, pretending that we needed assistance in the case and when she came, she was left aghast, but guilty. 'Miss Delson, you are under arrest!' said Holmes.
