6. Chapter 6 - (Jackie's P.O.V)

Marty and I took a little glare at each other and then agreed that we would no longer get to each other. But little did he know, my fingers were crossed behind my back. I gave him a reassuring smile, and he took it.

 

"Anyways, while you got Jackie I discovered something. Something we missed," Wesley explained. He walked over to a bookshelf, stared at it silently as if he found something intriguing about it, and then turned to face Marty and I again. "We missed something so obvious. We skipped it because it was obvious, because it was too easy," Wesley went on. He beamed at his little speech like it was an accomplishment. He liked the fact that he knew something we were clueless about.

 

"What is it?" I wanted to know.

 

Wesley's smile grew. "The books, of course."

 

Marty tilted his head to one side, scrunched up his face in confusion. "The books? Out of all things it's the books? How could they possibly be connected?" he questioned.

 

"Marty, don't you see?" I exclaimed. Heh, I knew he didn't. But I sure knew what was happening, leaving Marty to be the only clueless one around here. Standing straighter than I had before, putting an expression on my face that said "how could you miss it?", I continued with, "The books, Marty. I don't see how you missed it before though, unless you were too focused on something else. Where've you been looking? The walls, listening for hollow sounds?"

 

"Why, yes. That's exactly what we've been doing," Wesley answered, somewhat amazed that I had even known about hollow places behind walls.

 

Man, I was on a roll! Even so, I gave him a look of shock and hurt, then said, "Oh, c'mon. I can figure that stuff out. Anyhow, you've been so busy with that that you haven't even bothered to check the books. It's a very common place for hidden passageways and such, at least in the movies. It must have slipped your mind."

 

"But how do they have a part in this? They're just books," Marty stated, still not catching on. I walked over to join Wesley, standing by one of the bookshelves. I inspected the many books, and placed my hand on a randomly chosen set of old, leather bound books.     

 

"Because," I said, "if you were to pull them down, it might just reveal a hidden room. Like so." I pulled the set down, expecting nothing to happen. I mean, it's not like this was even true. Pfff. Who was I kidding? This whole theory was probably incorrect. Just a few moments wait, though, and something happened. It couldn't actually be...

 

I heard a click as if some type of mechanism was moving around, and then with a little pop, the bookshelf swung toward us, revealing another room.

 

"How'd you do that?! I mean you just walked right over to the thing and bam! it's open!" a very surprised Wesley said. Marty on the other hand was too shocked for words. And I, well I couldn't believe my eyes.

 

"I-I don't know. I didn't actually think it'd work!" I choked out.

 

I'm really on a roll now. It was like the event that occurred in McMillan and Wife. The episode where Sally and Mildred are left at home, and they're looking for the jewels that were said to be hidden in their wall that covered the fireplace. Sally literally walked right up to the wall, explaining a situation that was very much like mine, tapped a random brick and voilà, she found the box. Sadly for her, though, the box was empty, the jewels already taken by someone else. In this case, though, I'd like there to be something in this hidden room rather than end up with nothing like Sally and Mildred. Let's hope it's something we're looking for.
