Staniford was confused and a little bit worried when he checked his email and found a mysterious request from his classmate, Rika.

Everyone in the Greater Winnipeg area knew who she was and the lengths she would go to acquire her favorite dessert. Rumor had it that she had once arm-wrestled a leprechaun and won, only to find that his pot contained gold and not pudding. This was the result of Rika’s other most notorious trait: superstition.

Only someone superstitious enough to believe in leprechauns would try to arm-wrestle one and they must be even more so to win.

So it was basically believable that she might believe the incredible claims of a chain letter. This one wasn’t like her though. Would she really threaten her friends’ pets? And why would a chain letter be so specific?

“Dear friends,

I have your pets. I will keep them forever unless each of you send one pudding to one of the holes by the river (you know the one) and forwards this to 14 more people. Do not talk about this to anyone, including me. You have until April 4th.

your friend,

Rika”
