A Summer To Remember

Trixie Belden's life has changed since she has turned 18. Her brothers and Dan had gone away to college, Honey and Jim had moved, and Di had been given a scholarship at a different school. But when the rest of the group come back to visit the Bob-Whites suddenly find themselves knee deep in another mystery. And does Trixie have a new love? Book 1 of the Bob-Whites Summer series.


19. Captured

Jim jumped through the bushes and untied the knots that bounded Trixie's hands and legs together. Brian quickly released Honey as well.
'I'm so glad you two are okay.' Jim said smiling as he helped Trixie to her feet.
'Another mystery done and dusted.' Mart said ariving beside them.
'Not quite..' Trixie said.
'What do you mean?' Dan asked frowning as he and Di came up beside them too.
'Well, we have solved Jim's stolen car, the shooting and all this but what about Brenden and them breaking Finlay out of jail?' Trixie asked.
The others looked at her.
'Okay, lets tell the police about them.' Jim said.
They turned to head for Sargent Molinson when someone stopped them in their path.
'Brenden?!' Trixie said shocked.
'What were you and Jim doing following us eariler today hmm?' He asked.
'Actually, i think you should be the one answering the questions Brenden.' Trixie said. 'What were you doing with Finlay tied up? You broke him out of jail? We can tell the police and get you behind bars along with Kane.'
'That wont be needed Miss Belden.' Sargent Molinson said looming up behind Brenden.
'Huh?' Trixie was confused as were the others.
'Brenden works for me. He is 'undercover' as they call it. We made it to look that they broke Finlay out of jail so he would cooperate.' Sargent Molinson said.
'These guys, Phil and Kane, are friends of Finlay's, completing his work that he never got to do since he was sent to jail.' Brenden added.
'Brenden and his friends, other guys undercover, pretended to break him out, which we let them do, so they could get him to lead them to Kane and Phil. We didn't know what they looked like so Finlay was our only chance.' Sargent Molinson continued.
'What you saw was acting which, to Finlay, looked real. We sen't him back to jail making him think he didn't complete the job even though he did. He managed to lead us here and tonight, thanks to you, we have found Kane and Phil.' Brenden finished smiling greatfully at Trixie and the others.
'But you are a school boy?' Trixie asked.
'More acting. I am actually out of school, i just had to use that as a cover to be able to fit in here un noticed.' Brenden admited.
'Oh.' Trixie said finally relising how everything fitted together.
'I think it is time for you to all head home.' Sargent Molinson said.
They agreed and together the Bob-Whites headed for home.

A very worried Mrs and Mr Belden waited at home. When the Bob-Whites walked through the door they got a good talking to.
'We are sorry.' Was all they could say.
After a lot of sorrys, much convincing that they were safe and making them relising that once again their children and their friends had managed to put another criminal behind bars they let them go off to bed.
Dan settled down in his room for the night, completely tired.
Mart and Brian went to their room and wen't straight to sleep and Honey and Di were out the second their heads hit the pillow in Trixie's room.
Only Jim and Trixie remained awake.
'Trix.' Jim said as he walked up behind her.
She was standing out on the front porch taking in the fresh night air.
She turned at the sound of his voice, 'Oh Jim.' She smiled at him. He joined her sitting beside her looking out over Crabapple farm.
Now is probably your only chance to tell her. Just say it! Jim thought.
'Trix i have been trying to tell you something for the past few days.'
Trixie chuckled, 'Yes and we keep getting intrupted. What is it you wanted to tell me?' She asked looking at him.
'I..' He stammered.
'Jim,' Trixie said taking his hand. 'Say it.' She smiled warmly at him.
'I'm in love with you Trix. I have been for a long time.' He finally said.
Trixie grinned at him, 'I love you Jim. You know that there will never be anyone else for me.'
It was Jim's turn to grin. He put his arm around her and pulled her in to him. She looked up into his big green eyes. He lent down, kissing her gently on the lips. They sat for a while longer admiring the wonderful full moon. Trixie was so glad to have the Bob-Whites back and knew that this was going to be a summer she really will remember. Forever.
