"I took drink to first man, then walked to hallway. I knocked at door on left. Entered. Looked around. There was no desk. There were several tables, but a desk is big. I walked back to hallway, wondering if maybe I misunderstood. Sometimes my English isn't so good. I try door across from it. There is desk. I walked over to put drink on it then noticed the safe in the wall was open and things had fallen on the floor."
"Did you touch anything?" The detective raised an eyebrow.
"Better to ask where she hid the diamond?" Lord Middleton's tone grew angrier. He was losing his British stiff upper lip-ness. If that's a word.
"I did not touch anything. I did not steal anything." I stood and spun. "Look at what I am wearing. It barely covers me. I… I couldn't hide a tissue."
I caught the appreciative glance of the young sergeant. My skirt was very short and my legs are very long.
I plopped back onto the chair. The hidden red diamond clunked against my thigh. "Why would I take anything?" I shot my best baby-doe-eyed look at the inspector.
The sergeant chuckled. "His lordship is concerned that you're a cat burglar."
"I did not steal a cat. I would not steal a cat." I shook my head. "That would be a bad thing to do. I do not steal. I am good girl."
I really should start counting how many times I've used that "did not steal cat" line.
