34. Quick Work

Ted Robinson has worried all the week. Last Tuesday he received a letter from the local police. In the letter he was asked to call at the station. Ted wondered why he was wanted by the police, but he went to the station yesterday and now he is not worried any more. At the station, he was told by a smiling policemen that his bicycle had been found. Five days ago, the policemen told him, the bicycle was picked up in a small village four hundred miles away. It is now being sent to his home by train. Ted was most surprised when he heard the news. He was amused too, because he never expected the bicycle to be found. It was stolen twenty years ago when Ted was a boy of fifteen !
Pekerjaan Cepat. Ted Robinson telah khawatir sepanjang minggu. Selasa lalu ia menerima surat dari polisi setempat. Dalam surat itu ia diminta untuk memanggil di stasiun. Ted bertanya-tanya mengapa ia dicari polisi, tapi ia pergi ke stasiun kemarin dan sekarang dia tidak khawatir lagi. Di stasiun, ia diberitahu oleh polisi tersenyum bahwa sepeda telah ditemukan. Lima hari lalu, polisi mengatakan kepadanya, sepeda dijemput di sebuah desa kecil empat ratus mil jauhnya. Hal ini sekarang sedang dikirim ke rumahnya dengan kereta api. Ted paling terkejut saat mendengar berita itu. Dia geli juga, karena ia tidak pernah berharap sepeda yang akan ditemukan. Itu dicuri dua puluh tahun yang lalu ketika Ted adalah anak dari lima belas!
