weird tales | THE SCROLL OF GREATNESS {part 6}

** Sherlock's in deep, deep trouble!

a Sherlock Hong story by Don Bosco

That was how he caught me. 
I told him why I was so eager to see the Scroll, and how Aisha had promised to turn up but she left me waiting. 
The man in charge, Dr. Woo, just hissed in annoyance. He summoned three of his coolies and together they dragged me to the police station, two streets away.
I was locked up in a terribly musty cell. Someone went to get my father. He's the community physician, and a highly respected person. 
Pa hurried over. I started to tell him what happened, but he just shook his head. 
"Do you know how many of my patients are waiting for me?" he sighed, sounding tired and disappointed.
We sat on a bench together while Constable Flint helped Dr. Woo make a report. 
Dr. Woo was furious. He held up the yellow notice from outside his mansion, the one with the brush sketch of the long box. His long black coat shook as he spoke. 
"This young thug stole the Scroll of Greatness from my mansion!" he screamed at Constable Flint. "Do you know what this means? It’s an insult to my motherland and my Emperor! You must get the Scroll back. Even if you have to torture him!"
