Stolen EarringsMystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
"Kaitlyn!" I shrieked when I saw my best friend run through the door, "You're back!"
Kaitlyn had been vacationing at Myrtle Beach for a week and we couldn't wait to see each other. She glanced at my ears. "Where are your earrings?"
She was referring to a pair of earrings she had bought me for my birthday just before she left. They were small, shiny blue crystals dangling from a short silver chain. "I haven't put them on yet; I was planning on wearing them today." I rushed to my room to retrieve the earrings, but when I opened the door to my jewelry box, they were gone!
"I'm positive I put them there before going to bed. I know who must have done it!" I hurried into the living room, where my two brothers and sister sat, lazily watching television.
"Which one of you stole my earrings?" I demanded.
"What would I want with a pair of stinking earrings?" claimed Zack, and Jeremy quickly agreed. "It's not like we wear the things."
"I didn't steal your blue crystal earrings," said Sabrina. "Then who did?" I asked.
Kaitlyn smiled. "I think I know."
Who stole the earrings? And how did Kaitlyn know?
HintThe evidence is provided in the story, if you read carefully enough.
AnswerSabrina stole the earrings. No one had said which earrings were stolen, yet Sabrina said she hadn't stolen the blue crystal earrings. She couldn't have known unless she had stolen them.
Sabrina gave the earrings back, and apologized. "I just wanted to be grown up like you," she said. The next day, Kaitlyn bought a pair of earrings just for Sabrina.
