Privington, Ashville not only holds the most interesting records of criminals, but it also is the home to the three young detectives; Marty, Wesley, and Jackie. After closing down yet another stolen goods operation, the trio is called upon to take on another task. However, this time it's different, and later on known to be extremely dangerous.

Chief Blanton, of the Privington Police Department, has given the young sleuths the task of finding his son, who has disappeared. Of course they accept, not knowing exactly what they were getting themselves into. When Jackie gets kidnapped, will the trio decide to back off or will they fight on? Will they find the chief's son, or will they fail?

Read on to dive deeper into this mystery.


5. Chapter 5 - (Jackie's P.O.V)

After a few moments wait, I could make out the bright beam of a flashlight—my flashlight—not too far ahead of me, down the hall. It swung this way and that, from wall to wall, searching for who knows what. Marty was being very hesitant as he walked towards me. He probably wanted to get a thorough look of every square inch of the hall, making sure that he didn't miss me. Then, when he shown the light to a different spot, he caught me standing, waiting, like he had told me to do. He walked more confidently over to me now, knowing where I was and that he didn't have to waste his time going over the whole hallway.


Marty silently waved to me as a way of saying 'I'm here', then turned around to lead me back to where he and Wesley had been before.


"So, have you guys found anything yet? Or someone?" I asked, wanting to be caught up with the progress they've made without me.


"Nothing so far. We suspect that they've got some hidden room around here though," Marty answered.


"Where're you guys? Which room? The one Johnston went into?"


"Yep. We think that that's where he disappeared ‘cause there's no way out of that room except for the door he entered through."


"I see."


We rounded a corner which lead us right into a library. It was a very large room, and the walls were consumed mostly by bookshelves, the shelves full to their limit with books. The wallpaper, just like it was in the rest of the house, was old and peeling, revealing the ugly colour the previous owners had tried to hide. The floor was wooden and worn, all the shine that would have been there completely gone, replaced with scratches and dents. It looked as though it might break under our weight if we weren't careful, but that was just like the rest of the house; it all looked like it would collapse any minute. If the work was put into it, I could see the room being beautiful as it once was.


"Hey, Jackie," Wesley greeted me, flashing me a friendly smile.


"Hey," I replied, "sorry for not being able to make it here so quickly. I just had the tiny issue—"


I was rudely cut off by Marty. "By not having your flashlight. I get it, okay?" He cast me an amused grin, showing me that he was only joking. I on the other hand gave him an annoyed sneer, signalling that I didn't find it funny.


"Alright you two. Don't start anything. Especially ‘cause we're on a case," Wesley warned us. Luckily we had Wesley here to keep us from yapping at each other, or from me giving Marty a gesture that wasn't meant to be kind.
