“She will never find out!”, smiled Maitri to herself as she hid the family heirloom diamonds deep inside her personal locker at home. She was supposed to deliver the the precious stones to her younger sister Deeta.
Their older sister Lakhi, had taken on the onus of distributing the diamonds from their mother’s traditional nose ring between the siblings and she had entrusted Maitri to deliver the diamonds that were intended for Deeta. Never in a million years did Lakhi think that the diamonds would not be delivered or that her own scatterbrained nature would work against her when Maitri declared that she had never been given any diamonds to pass on to their younger sister…
Maitri had always been jealous of the smarter and better looking younger sister. It also didn’t help that Deeta never bent to Maitri’s bullying when they were kids. Maitri had finally found a way to own something intended for Deeta. In fact, she had plans to convert the diamond stones into earrings for her own daughter before suspicions could be raised within the family.
Life works in funny ways and late one evening, Maitri walked into her home that had been broken into.
“You have some wishful thinking!”, smiled an invisible Moira, as Maitri rushed into her bedroom and fainted on discovering that the thieves had broken into her locker and had made away with everything in it.
