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.


10. The Truth

'WHAT?!' Trixie yelled. 'No way. No way is that possible. I didn't recognize that man, i have no clue who he is. I haven't done anything to anyone!'
'Trix, calm down. We didn't was that it was true, just that it was possible.' Jim said placing a hand on her shoulder.
'I just want to go home. Can we please go home?' Trixie mumbled.
'Yes i think it would be best if the lot of you did that.' Sargent Molinson said.
Jim nodded in agreement. 'Can we have a ride home?' He asked.
Sargent Molinson nodded, 'Of course. Mark, take them home please.'
Trixie and Jim headed over to the police car. Mart was already there and Brian and Honey were on their way over. Trixie reached out and put a arm around Honey. Her cheeks were stained with tears and here eyes were nose was red.
'Hey Honey, it is alright.' She said soothingly.
'I was so scared Trix, I thought you were going to...'
'No never! It is all okay now Honey.'
They squeezed into the car and Mark drove them back to Crabapple farm.
'What about Brenden?' Trixie suddenly asked.
'He is fine. I saw him around the front when i was talking to the police.' Mart reassured her.
Trixie rested her head on her brother, Brian's shoulder.
'I'm glad you are okay Trix, I love you sis.' He said.
'I love you too Brian! Thank you for what you did. Both you and Jim.' Trixie said.
'You're my sister. I would do anything for you.'

Mr and Mrs Belden were hysterical when they arrived home. Mark explained the whole incident to them. It took at least an hour to calm them down and explain every detail of what happened. Mark left eventually but Mrs Belden was still asking question after question at the Bob-Whites.
'Why did you go back in?!' She half shouted.
'Other people were in there Mom. We couldn't just leave them!' Trixie replied.
'And they think you are a target? You Trixie?!' Mr Belden said angrily, but not towards them.
'It is only a possibility,' Jim said. 'They will look into it down at the station.'
Mr Belden shook his head. 'I'm glad you are all alright.'

Later that night Honey had finished setting up the second bed in Trixie's room to sleep in. Jim would have to be alone for the night.
'I can't believe what happened. It just makes no sense.' Honey said getting into bed. She was still in shock as were the rest of the bob-whites.
Thank god Bobby wasn't awake. He would be a mess.
'Lets just get some sleep. I don't want to even think about it until tomorrow.' Trixie sighed.
'Okay. But Trix?'
'Yes Honey?'
'I'm so sorry this happened. I'm glad you are okay.'
'I'm glad you are okay too Honey.' Trixie said truly meaning it.

Trixie couldn't sleep though. The horror of the arms wrapping around her and the gun being placed to her head kept running through her mind. She couldn't escape it. 'Ill shoot.' She kept hearing the gunman say. By 4 am she couldn't stand it any more. She got up and headed down to the kitchen for a drink.
Jim already sat at the bench drinking a glass of milk.
'Can't sleep?' Trixie asked grabbing a glass for herself and pouring some milk into it.
Jim shook his head.
'Neither. I can't seem to forget it.'
They sat in silence for a moment. 'Trix?'
'Before it all happened, when we were talking. Did you really mean what you said? About not feeling like Brenden like you did for ..me?'
Trixie set her glass down and looked straight into Jim's green eyes. 'I meant every word.'
A small smile played on his lips. 'I'm still mad you lied.'
'I don't blame you. It was stupid and i should have just told the truth.' Trixie said.
'But i kind of guessed you were lying. You would have mentioned him at some stage. Plus, you look absolutely nothing alike. Even Brian and Mart don't look like him.'
Trixie chuckled a little. 'Yeah it was stupid. I'm sorry.'
Jim smiled, taking her had, 'I forgive you. There was something i needed to tell you. We got interrupted last time i tried.'
'What is it?' She asked.
'Are you two okay?' Brian asked coming into the kitchen. They quickly let go of each others hands and Trixie placed their empty glasses on the sink.
'Yes, we are fine.' She replied not turning around. 'I was just heading back to bed.' Trixie said turning around. Jim caught her arm as she was about to leave.
She nodded smiling and headed up the stairs to bed.
