The Jewel Thief

After an arduous trail, the visitors reached their destination.

The quaint cottage on the hill looked welcoming.

A beautiful lady answered the door.

Her face matched their intelligence-reports.

They were sure they would finally get what they were looking for.

"Where are the diamonds?" they asked. 

Not giving away her nervousness, she confidently answered, "I don't have any."

"Really? We'll soon find out!" 

The officers started searching her home.

They looked everywhere, but there was no trace of the diamonds.

Had they nabbed the real jewel thief? 

The cactus pot in the corner held the secret they could not unravel.
