The Three Students part one 2
Soames’ room was on the first floor.
First, Holmes looke inside the room through a window.
The window was up high, so he had to stand on his tiptoes to see inside.
“Your servant is gone. Which chair was he sitting in?”
“That one by the window.”
“Okay. The mystery person was copying the exam papers on the desk by the window.
That way, he could see you if you came back.
He was in such a hurry that he broke his pencil.
Ah, here’s the piece of clay.
The shape is unique, like a pyramid.
And I see the cut on your desk.
Mr.Soames, could I take a look at the other room?”
“Of course, sir.
That’s my bedroom.”
Holmes looked at everything, then he suddenly kneeled down and said,
*kneel down; ひざまずく
“Hello! It’s another piece of clay.
It’s the same shape as the one that was on your desk.
Ah, the mystery person came int this room and hide here.
So, Mr Soames, tell me about the three studnets.”
“Well, Mr Gilchrist is an excellent student and is also an athlete.
He’s long jumper. he’s tall.
His family used to be rich, but now they are poor.
Mr. Ras is a quiet student with good grades except for tomorrow’s exam subject,Greek.
Mr. McLarer is smart but doesn’t always study hard.
He might be worried about tomorrow’s exam.”
“All right Now I’d like to talk to Mr.Bannister”.
