Everything is silent....

The timer stopped at 2 seconds. Lestrade cut the blue wire! Everybody cheered. Lestrade was relieved.

Everyone was rescued, although some were carried away by the paramedics. Lestrade began to look for Holmes. When she found him, he was standing near the NLU's entrance.

Once he saw Lestrade, he smiled and beckoned her to come over. 'It was a close one, isn't it?' Holmes asked.

Lestrade nodded.

'Why didn't you cut the red wire?' Holmes asked.

'Because somehow I felt that the red wire was a trap.' Lestrade replied.

'That's what I was trying to tell you when the concrete blocked the door,' Holmes smiled.

Both of them stared at each other. Then they heard a voice saying: 'Good job, Inspector Lestrade; you caught the killer at last.' They turned their heads around and saw Grayson standing behind them.

Lestrade turned around and smiled, 'Actually, Holmes is the one who caught him, Chief.'

'Well, good job, Mr. Holmes, I have to admit,' Grayson said, and turned to Lestrade. 'I have another case for you, Inspector Lestrade, and yes, you have to go undercover as a student again if you are planning to ask; and Mr.. Holmes, you can join her if you want.'

Lestrade and Holmes looked horrified. They looked at each other and nodded. Holmes suddenly grabbed Lestrade's hand and ran towards the school's gate.

'Sorry, Chief, but we don't want to go undercover as students again as long as we live!' Lestrade yelled.
