Grandpa woke up with a jolt.
He was shocked to see Chubby there.
“Somebody is trying to open the window,” he whispered to grandpa.
Grandpa kept staring at Chubby for a few seconds.
Chubby pointed his finger at the window.
After a few seconds grandpa realized what Chubby was saying.
He got up.
“Shh don’t make a noise,” Chubby cautioned.
This time they both heard the noise coming from other side of window.
“I will wake up Papa and bring him here” Chubby whispered to grandpa.
About two minutes passed.
Chubby returned with Papa. Mama too followed them.
“Dada lets go out from back door and catch the thief,” Papa whispered Grandpa.
Mama held on to Papa.
“Be careful,” she pleaded softly.
“Don’t worry,” papa assured Mama.
Chubby and Mama followed Papa and Grandpa.
Papa took a rope from kitchen before opening the door quietly.
“You wait here,” he told Mama and Chubby at the doorstep.
Then he disappeared into darkness with grandpa.
Mama hugged Chubby.
She was shivering.
“Don’t worry Mama, they should be alright,” Chubby comforted Mama.
Just then they heard a shout.
It was Papa’s voice.
“Bring a light. We caught him”
