my 'present' for you: Did someone die? (kind of) :wink:

Been a while since an update so I'm gonna ask 3 more questions if that's cool:

Was the bell the alarm of a home security device?
Did she fear that her home was being invaded?
Did she see that the "home invader" was actually a loved-one?

I am pretty sure the answer to those last 3 will be no cause she answered no to "Was the bell in a home?" and "Was the alarm bell a burglary alarm?" and "Is the alarm bell automated?"

My question:
Was she crying cause she was hungry and this was the dinner bell?

btw.   
After giving those two questions:
Quote
Did the ringing of the bell signal that someone was nearby?
Was she happy because someone was nearby?
...   a 'Yes' I feel the need to inform you that both of them - taken by the word - needed to be sorted into the 'No'-list because they aren't precise enough. 
So just not to make it even harder to solve the case I placed it where it is.

You are thinking the correct direction with these and some of the latest questions from the 'No'-list. :wink:

Keep it coming!

*nearly the same prob than before, sorry
It is missing an attribute to make it a helpful (and for this case meaningful) questions, but of course you are unable to know that without some more of the background information and I can't help more on this since it would give it all away.
At a specific point of solving the case you will understand my big problem with those but for now it might be easier to concentrate on other unrevealed facts to get in from the other side.
There are several ways you investigators will stumble over some heavy clues.

I beg to disagree that believing in angels is irrelevant...  :P Never heard of the "every time a bell rings an angel gets it's wings?" saying?   (wtf) So, I'll guess it's a no on that one.  (laugh)
  You don't know how much I agree with you on the first part, buuut ... if I placed that to yes or no it whould kill the case totally  :shocked:
  You will understand it soon … ;)


Stuck? No clue what direction to go? If you want a hint:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Find out about that little bell is the main aspect - as already stated correct - but it's also the most difficult to start with.
Much easier is to take it from other directions - for example if you find out the place she is or try to figure out what I gave you for a present are two possible ways that could make it all fall into place in a short time.

Before the bell rang did she think her husband was dead?
Was this during a war?

Does this case take place in or after some war?

Did she think it is a bomb alarm signal first, and noticed then, that the bell means the end of the war and her husband is finally coming home?
