The Secret Hiding Another

Riley Wellington isn't normal. She lives alone with her mother in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and her grade average is higher than anyone at her middle school. Everyone bullies her because she has no dad. Riley's mom would tell her he's dead, but only Ella, her best friend, believes her.

All until when Riley and Ella come home after a strange day to find their parents dying from a murderer in a secret organization. That's also when Riley's mother uses her last breaths to tell her daughter something. Her father isn't dead, but hiding in London. Determined, Riley drags Ella to England to find her father; thinking he knows why her mother was murdered.

After finding a place to stay, they meet Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. And are also pulled into another case. Confused on one case and determined on another, Riley hopes Sherlock could help her find her father.

But who he is will surprise her more.



9. The Rescue

The cab wasn't packed like it was days before but no one cared. The address of the Wellington mansion was crushed in Ella's grip, her eyes nervously checking her phone for any answer. Even though John said that Riley would probably not have her phone, but she still kept hoping.

"Just stop here." John told the driver and hurriedly paid him. They got out just in time as the police pulled in, Lestrade coming out first. A policeman broke the door and everyone entered. The four got into the living room where the Wellingtons and Dominic were, not scared. 

"Where is she?" Ella bursted, scared for her friend.

"Who?" Mr. Wellington asked.

"The girl. Riley. We know she's your granddaughter." Sherlock answered.

"We have never met her." Mrs. Wellington said.

Ella looked at the marks on the carpet and saw something shine in the light. Something blue and silver. Sherlock also saw it and grabbed it before Ella could. 

"She wore this the last we saw her." Sherlock stated, losing his temper. "Where is she?"

A policeman appeared next to Lestrade."The second floor is cleared, no sign of the girl. But we are hearing a noise on the floor above."

Sherlock and Ella left the room and hurried up the stairs, leaving Lestrade to arrest the three downstairs.


Riley was awake for a while, but the blindfold over her eyes made her blind and the duct tape over her mouth made her mute. The zipties had her bound hands behind her back while her bound feet her in front of her. Still, she could hear people below her. She, taking the risk, started stompping her feet against the flooring.

"You, go tell Lestrade about the noise." Someone said. 

Overwhelm filled her someone left. It was the police. Sherlock, John, and Ella have to be with her. Soon, she heard two people coming up the stairs. The door swung open and they pulled off the blindfold and duct tape for Riley to see Ella and Sherlock. Once her hands were free, she wrapped her arms around Sherlock, sobbing. 

"It's going to be okay, Riley." Sherlock said, his arms around her.

"I know." She answered. "I love you, dad."
