Serious Rumour

‘It is painful to see this playground abandoned.’ Simon said
You say? Alex asked
‘Did I do that? It’s what the people of this town believed, because of Steve.’
‘What I said? I made up a ghost story, if kids began to disappear What would I do?’
‘They say before a kid disappear they get a mole on right hand’ Alex said
Simon said ‘I have two moles since birth, why I didn’t disappear?’
Alex said ‘Maybe you are the kidnapper’.
‘He can’t even kidnap cockroach’ Steve giggled
With an evil smile ‘Wish the kids are safe’ Simon said.
