The meeting was at Lana's house tonight. Miranda felt a little award about everything. But she thought, it's just for fun right? Miranda kept on thinking why would the want her, she was just a freshman.
Miranda rang the door bell of Lana's house.
"Miranda come on in!" Lana said as she held the door open for her.
Miranda gave her a polite smile and pushed inside.
" were meeting the basement" lana lead her to a wooden door and walked down the carpeted stairs. The basement was large, and nicely renovated. It had a couch and a flat screen TV. The floors were wooden and the room was very clean. Miranda saw Jason and Tiffany sitting beside each other on the couch having a deep conversation. John was sitting in a tan loveseat beside them. Lana sat in a wooden rocking chair. Miranda took a seat in a computer chair . They all formed a circle around a small glass coffee table.
"OK let's start" Lana immediately said.
" wait were waiting for one more guest" john said calmly as he leaned back further in his seat.
" who?" Lana asked curiously
As if on cue the doorbell rang. John jumped up and ran upstairs to get it. He quickly came back down with a tall guy with jet black hair and eyes. He wore a black coat and jeans. He looked a little goth. Miranda thought I've never seen this guy at our school.
" this is Hunter, " john rushed
" hey" hunter said his voice deep and mysterious.
Lana looked like she was going to throw up
" it looks like it's a family reunion " hunter joked
" wait you've been gone for 9 years and never bothered to come to family parties or anything! And now you're back" Lana looked furious. Hunter didn't look so pleased either.
" John said you needed my help so I came, calm down I had me reasons why I never came back here"Hunter spatted
"Unbelievable!" Lana said
The tension in the room grew. To Miranda it was like watching two atomic bombs tick and which one would explode first.
Breaking the tension John said "We need to forget the past and tackle the task at hand. When I first came to this town I drove around a lot. Half of this town is made of woods, south too. If I hid the statue that's were I would put it. Hunter's good in the woods and tracking things. We need him "
" I found some evidence about when the statue went missing"everyone turned to Tiffany as she continued "my sister said the statue went missing around prom, so that's in june. I'm positive she's right because she usually never forgets important things"
" that's what I've been hearing too from some of victors friends" Jason finished
" also I found Courtney's diary and I've been looking through it. Here's a page that may be useful,
Tonight is prom night and I've invited Stephen over to watch movies while my sister is out.
Stephen is an hour late is he ditching me I called him a bunch of times but he won't pick up!
Stephen finally came and he said he was out buying me a present. He pulled out a beautiful necklace. The necklace had a silver chain and tied to it was a key with a owl sculpted on top. But it was damp when he put it around my neck. I then asked him "why are the bottom of you pants wet and the necklace wet?"
" I went over a bump in the road and my water bottle spilled all over my pants and the necklace"
Late into the night Stephen left.
Britney got home a few minutes later, her eyes ablaze.
She instantly said to me
" were did you get that necklace?" Britney slowly picked the key up.
" Stephan gave it to me isn't he adorable! It has an owl on it!" I giggled
" it's a hawk" she spatted flatly.
" OK " I said akwardly.
" I think you need to give me the necklace" Britney glared
" no way this is a token of how much he loves me" I said confidently.
Britney tried to snatch the necklace off of me but I was too fast and dogged the other way.
I quickly started to yell at her "what the hell why are you so against Stephan he loves me , I thought you'd be happy for me!"
She mumbled to the ground " it's alot more complicated than you think."
I marched to my room and locked the door. But later that night I wandered to the couch and fell asleep on that.
Tiffany continued " there's also another page I need to read to you guys
I woke up on the couch and I realized the necklace was gone! I instantly thought Britney stole it but when I confronted her she just acted more confused and denied stealing it. But she's probably lying I'll never for give her.
I told Stephan about the necklace and he grew Furious he started to punch the walls which scared me to death.Then he broke up with me. I am so confused"
Tiffany closed the book " do you think that the key my sister lost could be the key to the statue. It sounded like Britney freaked out when she saw it and she had to have had a good reason"
" not blaming you're sisters but I think they had something to do with this and we need to find out more about Britney. Guys this is the most evidence that we've ever got , we're finally getting somewhere" john said
