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.


4. Stolen

Mrs Belden was so happy to see Brian and Mart. The second they walked through the door she flung her arms around them embracing them in a huge hug.
'It is so wonderful to see you boys.' She said happily, 'Honey, Jim, it is great to see the two of you as well!' She hug them both tightly and then showed them to the spare room where Jim and Honey could put their stuff.
'Dinner will be ready soon, Trixie if you could please set the table?' Mrs Belden asked.
'Sure thing mom.' Trixie said heading straight for the kitchen to get the plates.

'Honey! BRIAN! Mart! Jim!' Trixie heard Bobby's little voice yell as he jumped down the stairs. She couldn't see what was going on in the lounge but she could hear a lot of excitement from Bobby. Trixie smiled to myself. She was so lucky to have such great friends and family. She grabbed the plates and other things needed to set the table and headed to the dinning room to set up. She added extra plates. It was weird for her to be placing this amount of plates down again. She had come so use to just putting 4 down for Her, Bobby, Mrs and Mr Belden. But now that her two brothers and friends were back, it felt like things were back to as they were.

Dinner was wonderful. Just Chicken and salad but it was delicious. Mr Belden had had a nice surprise to come home to. Seeing his boys again put a huge smile on his face. And Honey and Jim were like a part of the family. They talked about College, Honeys new school, jobs, how the Wheeler's were going.
'Mother is loving the new house, but she misses all this.' Honey said taking a sip of her drink.
'I think we all do!' Jim agreed. 'It just isn't the same. I talked about it with Honey about coming back here and starting my school for boys.' Jim added, quickly glancing at Trixie. And so i can be closer to you. he thought to himself then quickly looked away.
'Well if you do want to move back and get started you are more then welcome to stay with us!' Mr Belden said.
Jim smiled at him gratefully. 'That would be fantastic thank you. I will have to discuss it with the rest of the family before i make any decisions.'
'You're always welcome here, as are you Honey.' Mrs Belden grinned.
'Thank you Mrs Belden.' Honey said to her kindly.
'So boys, how is collage?' Mr Belden asked Mart and Brian.
'Great!' Brian said happily. 'I am going well and keeping up with all i need to. So far, i love it.'
'And Mart?' Mrs Belden asked.
'To be honest, it isn't all bad, but i don't think its quite my thing. I know this is only my first year but.. its been a bit hard. I miss home to much. And having the Bob-Whites to lean back on when i need friends.' Mart admitted.
Trixie had never heard Mart speak so truthfully about his feelings before.
'We all miss you too.' Trixie said. 'It has been so boring with out the Bob-Whites. I have nothing to do on weekends and holidays. I haven't got all my close friends to talk to. Di left because she was given a scholarship at a different school and Dan is at collage so that leaves me with know one. I feel so lonely.'
'You have me!' Bobby chimed in.
Trixie grinned at her little brother. 'Thanks Bobby.'
She looked up and her eyes met Jim's.
'Things just haven't been the same.' She said sadly. 'So that's why we are going to make the absolute best of this summer! and when Di and Dan get here we will make sure to have the best time!'

'To be honest. I really don't like my new school. There are nice people there.. but no one like the bob whites. I miss this place.' Honey sighed as Trixie and her headed up to Trixie's room.
'No one has bought your old home yet.' Trixie pointed out.
'Thankfully. Dad hates it there too. He misses this place. And Regan want so come back so bad. The horses barely get a proper work out because we don't have much land up there.' Honey said sadly.
Trixie tried to smile. But she missed the horses and the Wheeler's and Regan and Mrs Track so much.
'I don't know what to do.' Honey said.

There was a sudden bang that came from outside. Trixie jumped up and raced for the window. She reached it just in time to see car wheels spinning away up the road.
'What the...' Honey was cut off by Jim, Brian and Mart racing in to the room.
'Someone just stole Jim's car!' Brian said as they watched it disappear over the hill.
