(A/N: I should mention here that the events of this book take place BEFORE the season 1 finale of Gravity Falls, so Grunkle Stan has not gained possession of the journals yet.)
She finished her squealing and giggling just in time to realize she wasn't alone.
She turned around to see two certain brunette twelve-year-olds staring at her, the boy wearing a hat and the girl wearing a llama sweater. They're so small and cute in real life, I can't handle it, oh my God!
"Um, hi!" Twyla grinned, trying not to let her voice get squeaky to reveal that she was internally freaking out.
"Hi," the boy that could only be one person replied. "I'm Dipper, and this is my sister Mabel."
I know! she replied in a squeaky voice in her mind, but out loud she only said, "Nice to meet you. I, uh, came with a friend . . . and . . . have you noticed anything unusual happening around here lately?"
The Mystery Twins shared a knowing glance before Dipper replied, "Of course not."
"Nothin' weird happens around here!" Mabel added in a singsong voice.
Of course, being a fan of Gravity Falls, Twyla could see right through their lies . . . but she didn't feel like alienating them. "If you say so. We might have been able to help the owner of a book find something out, but I guess nobody here has it." She shrugged.
The twins shared a startled glance before blurting at the same time, "What kind of book?"
Twyla smirked, satisfied. "It's more of a . . . journal, I guess. There are three of 'em, marked 1, 2, and 3. They're filled with cryptic messages and information about nearby supernatural happenings. If you see one, please let me know."
The twins shared a glance, like they were communicating wordlessly. "We will." Mabel stated before pulling her twin off.
Twyla giggled and did a cartwheel before running back to the TARDIS, where she assumed she would find the Doctor.
