Not long ago there lived a girl named ‘Blue Hood , with her mother , in a lovely house on the Murree Hill tourist resort, not far from the Northern Area forest.
She was called ‘Blue Hood’ because she would get sad and upset very soon if she was refused anything she wanted. Blue Hood loved her special modern gadgets specially the IPhone and Tablet.
Blue Hood’s Grandmother lived in her very own digitally equipped house. This house had a special powerful internet wi-fi connection because guess what, Grand Ma was a tech savvy person and an expert in operating the laptop computers, mobile phones and Tablets’, but she had one weakness: she loved to collect these gadgets. She was a Collector, and she had taken Blue Hood’s ‘Tablet with her and was not ready to part with it soon.
‘What shall I do? How can I get back my Tablet?’
Blue Hood kept thinking and after a few hours she had reached a decision. She would take help from Wolfy the Hacker. Wolfy was a frequent traveler between the Grand Digital Village where grandma lived, and the Murree Hill resort. Many foreigners came to visit. Wolfy particularly preferred to use the Cruzer Coach which provided free wi-fi services.
In one trip when Grandmother was travelling, a charming foreign lady with a large bag was also a passenger on board. Wolfy was alert. With his secret camera he kept making a video of Grandmother and the Lady, as they talked and exchanged small packets, these packets contained secret messages on CD cassettes and USBs. Grandmother was always friendly when she traveled.
Not long after, Grandma became unwell. Blue Hood’s Mother made some soft brownies and went to the Cruzer Coach stand to see off Blue Hood. Mother had warned , ‘Blue, take these for your Grandmother and avoid talking to unknown people, and don’t keep asking for passwords.’
“I will not Mother’. It was not easy to pass time without the Tablet and who could feel the loss but Blue Hood.
“Hello there, why are you so blue?” Blue heard a rather heavy voice.
‘Oh please do not ask me, I cannot talk to strangers’. She also remembered her mother’s warning.
“Oh I saw that you were not holding a tech gadget so I was concerned, everyone your age has one right in their hands’.
Blue hesitated then remembered the saying, ‘ Gentleness and kind persuasion wins where force fails’, maybe this strange person can help.
‘Well, my Grandmother took mine and I am having problems getting it back. She loves to collect such items.She is unwell, I am going to see her.’
‘Ah, the generation gap. I will share a secret’. Blue Hood loved secrets.
“I am an expert hacker and as you can see, I have such big eyes, such big ears, and such a big loud mouth with such big teeth, I can get you your tablet’.
‘But, I can’t pay you’.
‘Oh that, your Grandmother , will’ and he smiled with a wicked sneer.
An appointment with Grandmother was arranged.
Together, Blue and Wolfy began their journey to Grandmother’s house.
When they reached Grandmother’s house and went in, she at once recognized Wolfy. ‘I have seen you somewhere’
“ Grandmother Grandmother, I ask you straightaway to give back the tablet you have taken from Blue Hood here, she is so in blue pain without it’.
When Grandmother saw the big mouth big red eyes and the big ears, she was frightened.’Well, I did not mean to keep it, I will give it soon’.
‘No, no, before you eat the brownies, you must return the gadget or else I will leak the video I made of you, on the Cruzer bus’.
Grandmother remembered all. ‘Oh no this is the spy on coach’ ‘Oh no, I am in a fix and my own grand daughter is suffering.’
‘OK I will, open the box on the table in the corner and you will find it.’
Soon the Tablet was in Blue Hood’s hands. She smiled and her hood and cape turned into a bright red color of joy and happiness.
‘Wow, this calls for a celebration,’ exclaimed Blue Hood and started jumping.
Grandmother called Blue Hood and handed her a brownie. ‘Give this to your friend’.
‘Here,Wolfy, eat this and thank you’, Blue Hood smiled a joyful smile.
No sooner had Wolfy eaten the brownie when he felt dizzy and fell on the floor.He hit his head on the side of the hard iron table and was unconscious.
GrandMother had stuffed a strong sleeping pill in the brownie cake piece.
‘Call 911’ Help Police’, Quick.’
The police arrived. Grandmother and Blue Hood were saved and Wolfy was arrested and taken away to be put in jail.
