Bedtime Crime Mystery

Daniel Brian born under which evil stars began eating cockroaches, ants and even lizards and by the age of twelve he

Had established a big Hobby Hall wherein he kept a vast collection of many lizards, scorpions, pigs and pigeons as well.

This collection of different earthly, air and ocean deep water

Animals too were very meticulously collected. At the age of seventeen he made it open to the public at five dollars a ticket.

Money began to rush in his coffers and gradually it led to the

 Expansion of his hobby. He was so madly obsessed

With this hobby and so busy into it that he would forget to go

 the bedroom. He would not keep his several animals starved

Even at the cost of making his lady starved in the bedroom. Any

One got his angry look in case any objection was raised. He

Growled like a ranting pig if his father objected:

“How dare you Pa! Raise any objection. Have I ever asked you any money for my pets? You are my father and I am your son.

But I am not your slave.” His mum intervened to pacify the looming storm. “He’s your father and wishes you well. So….”

 By the time he attained the age of thirty-five he lost his parents. He had only one sister but she became partly lunatic

Because of her totally lonely existence. None of the boys could imagine marrying her as they feared that they as well will be dragged into his hobby. He got married to four girls but all of them divorced him as the cries and shouts of pigs, dogs and monkeys spoiled the peace of his vast palatial castle. Four wives all left him to desert him forever. He needed woman to take care of his hobbies but not a wife to sleep in the bed. He had all his time for his hobby but it was a one-sided situation. You have also to give if you want to take.

Eccentrically involved in this hobby made him almost a half monkey. He had a very large bank balance but he had no

Successor to carry on with his hobby from any of his four wives. His hobby of keeping animals had become a hurdle into other important aspects of Human life. In many ways he had become

Quite eccentric, obstinate and a quizzical character He felt all the time that woman was the most deceitful and fickle-mind

That ever could be. He felt morose and depressed to reflect

Upon his bad luck of being thrown out like a foot ball by not

One woman there were four women who left him. He was

Found lamenting upon his bad luck entered Dorothy Claims,

Who waved her fingers into his hair, trying her level best to

Comfort him. Master what is there that hurts you? May I help?

You dear Master! He needed a woman very badly at that

Phase of isolated life.. She had been appointed as a helping assistant and Daniel in a fit of passion took Dorothy into her

Arms. ‘I love you Dorothy and I mean it. Very soon after they

Were lying on the bed and were entangled into each other.. There had been some touches and talks before too. This was the point of culmination.

                     It was a live-in-relationship as both of them were

Frightened of marriage as it had turned adverse.. Dorothy too had divorced her former husband. This went on happily also

Because Daniel’s sister by sheer good luck was married with one boy. She was quite used to take care of cats and bigger cats, Leopard, wolves, fox and flying eagles and flamingos too.

                                 Both of them lived quite happily for ten years when the luck took a wrong turn once again.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………

Darcy Smith, the husband of Daniel’s sister died suddenly as a

 Result of plane crash near Tokyo. He had gone there on some job assignment. Mary his sister came back with her son Tom

Crisply back to her brother for shelter and to spend her life

Along with her eight years old son named Jerry Stud.

                                The entrance fee to look into his hobby collections had been increased to ten dollars but it was not a

Hurdle of any kind. They felt an awful surprise to observe his

 Animals he collected them as a hobby could behave quite differently from the animals in a zoo. The monkeys could wish “Good Morning Sir’’ or “Good

Morning Ma’am” ‘Thank you from Squirrel for being offered ground nuts;” and his Parrots could sing “My love Marilyn Monroe\ I love her more” and so on.

                His animals’ hobby of collections became most famous in States and also in U.K. and Russia. It became a tourist spot as well. His hobby of madness became a heavy money maker and it was also listed in several hobbies associations.

                    Quite soon after Dorothy also became pregnant and

She gave birth to a beautiful son who was named Jeans   Brian.

It is quite obvious that Jeans was naturally the claimant to Daniel’s assets and his hobby collections were being offered

Very big offers.. Who would be there not to get

Tempted?

…………………………………………………………………………………………………

               His animals would call him and the women who entered into his life wanted a strong man who would look

After her all needs. Some of them wanted enough sex and he was short of time. But whenever he came and she came. He kissed her and she kissed him. Some or the other animal would

Call him at the wrong time and the whole of the sexual passion

Would melt as an ice-cream left on the plate to melt remaining

Untested and fully wasted. The wild animals are self efficient but when they are made pets, they will certainly call their master for their requirements. Pets are loved and too much

Of care makes a child a spoiled brat. The intrinsic nature of all

Animals are to fend themselves. But the situation goes into obtuse angle when they become pets.

                  On analyzing the problem of divorce in the case of

Daniel the issue was that he wanted a wife who should take care of his animals and the women who came in his life needed sex, motherhood and money. There was a storming crash and

Clash of expectations.

“I will look after your animals as far as possible but you will keep yourself free at my bed-room time.’

‘Yes surely and I will give you enough of my sex”

“O.K. SETTLED” Promises were made to be broken wildly. The girls were disappointed and that is why they left. Life is life and

Hobbies are only hobbies that should not cross the limits of

Saturation beyond.. We cannot breathe on hobbies. Life has many mysterious unknown demands.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………Another girl asked ; “ Should we eat them sometimes ?’

‘No not my pets. You can buy from the market and cook your food”

‘If something is not available like deer or whitest flamingo.

What’s to be done in that case?’

‘” Nothing has to be done. Control your passion and desires.

You won’t be allowed to kill my pets’

Thus the matter ran into divergent directions. This man could

Not fulfill the expectations of any girl. The hobby stood as a

 Hurdle into his life that was going on running awkwardly. There was no girl like Hitler’s beloved who waited for whole of her life for him.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………

                  What sort of human beings God has created? There are so many kinds of animals but Man comprises of several

Traits of all animals added together. Yet Man will remain undefined. No statement can be comprehensive and all inclusive. Eating all sorts of animals man himself has become the Worst than all the animals anywhere.

‘ Go to sleep Daniel. YOU NEED REST TODAY. Better have your

Lamb sandwiches and drink before going to sleep.’

‘You are right Dorothy. I must go to sleep.’’ ‘A LONG GOOD

SLEEP” He muttered to himself.

           She had planned to murder him through a poisonous

Adder. She had left one with the poison.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

The market price of the hobby ocean like was seventy lakh dollars

    Daniel had by now become an eccentric and he spoke the

Names of several pets that he felt missing them in his dreams during the night too. But all things that we have collected are to be left after death. Did Daniel not know this simple truth!

 He had his own son from Dorothy and he had her sister’s son,

Dean Martin too. He wanted to give some part of his assets to

Dean as well.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………

Mr. Daniel listens to me carefully. You are seventy four and I am seventy. Before Death separates us let us sell all of the collections and with the seventy lakh dollars let us enjoy our

Remaining lives in the most beautiful places of whole of the world.

                     “No I shall not sell my animals hobby collection.

“Do you think all these animals are going to accompany you?’

He remained quiet. Thereafter trying to explain: that Jean

Will continue with my legacy that I will leave after my death

                        “SHUT UP YOU FOOL I did not give my    whole life

For a parasite sort of monster in your sister.. Your whole assets are for me and my Son who is in Florida..

…………………………………………………………………………………………………Next day she continued with the discussion and tried to persuade him.. But the readers know that Daniel was a boy who was not only an obstinate boy but also had remarked that he was his father’s

Son not one who was his father ‘slave..

Dorothy could not control her temper and pulled out a pistol and shot three bullets into his chest. Daniel fell down never to rise again.
