It never made any sense for Stef to instantly assume the ring was stolen. Like Les said, they aren’t particularly valuable, and I’m sure there were far more valuable things in the storage area for a thief to take.
Stef won’t apologize, it’s not in her nature. She’ll just say “Haha, oops! I found it on the floor” and that’ll be it. And the others won’t do anything, because if they didn’t kick her out after everything else she’s done, they never will.
So did each of them win a book or do they only get one free book?
Nobody with any brains would store anything valuable in a house with minimal security when there are plenty of actual secure storage places available.
How is outright theft a Robin Hood method? His legend says he robbed the rich to feed the poor. Heart’s just talking about shoplifting.
“I mean, sure, I stole some of her boots, but I never touched the ring.”
No kidding!! I know she’s supposed to be precocious but that’s really not a children’s book!
The bottom line is that somebody would have to know the ring existed and where it was to steal it, and Ox doesn’t even know Stef has a boyfriend I don’t think.
I really think it’s going to turn out that Stef just put the ring somewhere else. It just doesn’t make sense that anybody would steal it because they’d need the time to go through all the boxes and nobody had the chance to do that.
“I have back issues” he said as he hefted a storage rack full of glasses.
Again, for Les to have stolen the ring, he would have A. had to know that Stef had a boyfriend and I don’t think he even met her before he moved her boxes, B. had to know Kip gave Stef a class ring, C. knew where that ring was and D. been able to fine the box where she’d put it, dig it out and pocket it without anybody seeing him.
It’s MUCH more likely that Stef simply misplaced it.
Pretty impressive if she actually managed to read ‘Don Quixote’.
