Carl wasted no clip and was seeking the whole room under the bed in the cupboard and even under the bed ‘s mattress but he could n’t happen them. He was approximately to give up when he remembered the bag under the bed. Carl pulled it out and started unzipping it.

“ Stop! ” Jonny cried “ that ‘s private material. You ca n’t look at it ”

Carl looked up at him “ You ‘d merely be concealing something if you stole the places. You did n’t steal the places did you?
