I was walking on the sidewalk minding my own business when all of a sudden a man ran past me carrying a briefcase. Behind me a woman shouted “help me, that man just stole my briefcase!” I quickly shot out my arm to grab the thief but just missed, luckily another guy who was further up the street caught the thief with his arm. So I ran to help him contain the thief until the police arrived. After the police had left the woman then thanked me and the other man and then went on her way and we went on ours.
I was hiding in the bushes when the ride operator got the wire cutters out of his back pocket. He cut the horse’s free. My hunch had been correct, the horses had moved when I saw them at lunch time having a break from all the children riding on them. After the ride operator cut them all loose they all whinnied to each other and ran across the field to the river that was down there. They were soon out of sight of my hiding place so I moved quickly through the bushes to pursue them further.
