The Thief and the Lady ( Short Story)

A thief wearing a mask
The incident took place on a cold frosty morning . A lady who was alone in her house , came out of the door to pick up the newspaper . A man who had covered his face with a mask forced the woman to let him enter the house at the gun point and asked the woman to get him the keys of the safe. 

                                                                 
A scared woman shouting

The poor frightened woman gave him the keys of locker as she found no other way.
The man took out all the money and jewellery from the safe, and ran away.
The woman called the police and told them what had happened.
According to the description given by the woman police caught two men. The cops asked the woman to tell if the thief was one of those two men. The woman got confused because the appearance of two men was was quite similar and it was difficult for her to find out the real culprit.
The police gave her some time to think and started questioning the two men. Both of them denied the theft. While they were answering the questions the woman was watching them carefully.
  When one of the man was talking with the police and moving his hands in an opposing manner saying '' I did not commit the crime as simple as that! I was at my home in the morning you can ask my wife as simple as that , how could I be present at two places at the same time as simple as that."   The woman whispered to cop sitting next to her '' Yes I remember, that man is the thief , I recognized  him!"
"Are you sure ma'am ?", the cop asked her. "Yes officer!  I am quite sure. I remember he used the words ''as simple as that'' many times as he is doing now.Please ! Believe me and take some action".
After a little hard work police found the money and ornaments from that man's place.
''And that is how the thief was caught.''
