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.


5. Confusion

Trixie was the first to reach the front porch closely followed by Jim.
'Who would steal your car?!' She half shouted as the raced across the lawn.
Jim had brought Honey, Brian and Mart home in his car so there weren't any others to drive.
Mart burst through the doors along with the others and sprinted along after Jim and Trixie.
'Did anyone see their face?!' Brian asked.
'Nope, i just heard the tires.' Honey replied.
Jim closed his eyes for a minute and took a few deep breaths. They slowed to a walk knowing that they wouldn't be able to catch the car.
Trixie turned to Jim. 'I'm so sorry, i should have taken more notice on the face of the driver!'
'Hey, hey, its fine. We will get it back and find out who this is! Don't worry, it isn't your fault.' Jim brought Trixie in for a hug. She hug back instantly.
'I don't get why someone would wan't to steal your car?' Mart said angrily. 'You only just came back today! It's not like you made anyone want to steal it..'
Jim shrugged. 'It makes no sense.' He let go of Trixie and they all headed back in the direction of the house.
But as they walked back Jim took Trixie s hand in his and gave it a little squeeze. 'Can we talk later?' He whispered.
She nodded. 'Sure.'

The 5 of them sat in the spare room, sprawled out on all the furniture that filled it.
'I still don't get it. Why would someone steal your car?!' Mart asked for the 20th time.
'Mart, we don't know.' Trixie replied also, for the 20th time.
Bobby suddenly came rushing into the room. 'Brian, will you tell me that story you promised you would tell me?'
Brian grinned at his little brother. 'Sure thing.' He said rising from his chair.
'Can i come?' Honey asked.
Brian took honeys hand and they followed Bobby up to his room.
'I've had enough for one day, i;m off to bed. Night.' Mart said leaving the room.
'Night Mart.' The two remaining bob-whites said.

Jim came and sat beside Trixie on the couch.
'What was it you wanted to talk about?' Trixie asked.
Jim hesitated, obviously nervous. 'Trixie.. for a long time i have been wanting to tell you this. You see...'
'Trixie mom wants you to help with the washing up.' Mr Belden suddenly said interrupting whatever Jim was trying to say.
Trixie sighed. 'Okay, sure thing.' She turned to Jim. 'Sorry, we will have to finish this another time.'
He nodded understandingly. 'Okay, sure.'
He smiled at her as she left the room. Once she was gone he put his face in his hands. 'Just tell her!' He said angrily to himself. He got up from the couch and shook his head. 'Just say it!' he thought.
