This is my first story based off of a cartoon show so please go easy on the comments. This story is based off of The Pink Panther Show when the inspector was in it.

If you want me to keep going please comment on this =3 Have fun reading

Have you ever tried to solve a mystery that seemed so difficult that you either gave up or couldn't solve it no matter how you try? I had one of those times and I will tell you about it.

I guess I should introduce myself before the story actually begins. My name is Jacques Clouseau and I am a semi-famous inspector. You probably heard of me but I don't count on it if you havn't lived in France.

It was a morning like any other. Blue skies with barely a cloud in sight. Birds chirping. Well, if I knew it would be a day unlike how I described, I wouldn't have woke up. The commissioner called me down to his office with his voice shaking like he saw an anaconda slither into his room.

As I walked down to the commissioner's office, I was so excited because I was going to get a mystery to solve. I though,"Hmmm. If the commissioner sounded frightened, this must be the best one yet." I almost skipped to his office, but I didn't because that wouldn't be very manly of me, would it? I opened the door slowly until it was only about five inches open, and I said,"You wanted to see me, sir?"

The commissioner was facing the wall away from me, so I couldn't see his face. Even though it wasn't visible, I could feel his fear practically radiating from his body and his palms were sweaty as he held them behind his back. "Yes, Inspector," he said with a shaky voice but cleared his voice before continuing,"I have a very important job for you and I expect you to take it for the sake of your job."

"As you are well aware, there has been kidnappings from all over the world." He paused and, as he paused, I thought,"I need to read more newspapers or watch more news because I don't recall any major kidnappings." Even though those words went through my head, I just replied,"Yes, I do recall, Commissioner."

The Commissioner continued,"These kidnappings have been only of important people. I fear that the mayor and I may be their next target since France hasn't been one of the places that the kidnappings happened in. Well, not yet anyway.

"Eye witnesses recall seeing a ghostly figure riding a blue horse. I want you to solve this mystery, Inspector, because the other detectives I tried hiring were too scared to do it. Are you up to the challenge?"

"You can count on me, sir." I said before I thought about it. I think his fear was contagious because I started shaking as well.
