Simon has taken the string with the blue diamond as a present for his wife for Halloween.

The blue diamond

On the 31st of October, the jeweler Simon opens at six AM. He is an English gentleman. He is a blond slender man. His fair complexion contrasts with his black hair.
He has inherited the jewelry from his father Mr.Smith Clark that was specialized in golden watches mostly.

He always spends two hours to organize his jewelry. As a ritual, he wipes each piece with a magical powder. Each jewel has a specific number. He knows his pieces as he knows his children.
With a meticulous gesture, he puts one by one on the showcase. He contemplates them as if it were the first time. Each time he discovers a new thing on each piece.

Suddenly the blizzard blows and his office window is broken. He tries to open the door with trembling hands, thinking about an eventual smuggler. He opens the door and at the same time, he switches on the alarm. His hesitating paths lead him inside his office. He becomes out of his breath
when he falls because of an object that sticks to his shoe.
Fortunately, there is no one. He remains worried overall because his safe deposit box is there.

A shining golden string with a blue diamond as a pendant lays on the ground.
"Unbelievable!" he exclaims.
The jewel was inside the safe deposit box. This latter is coded.
"Who did open it and then close it?" he asks himself.
He opens the box but to his surprise, no jewel is missing.

Late tonight, he has taken the jewel as a present for his wife Jessica for Halloween.
When he has closed his jewelry door, a passer-by disguised as a wizard stops and smiles at him.
Intense full moonlight lets show his reddish deadpan eyes.
Since this day, Simon is declared as missing.
