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.


12. Unknown Clues

As soon as the Bob-Whites got Dan settled in the guest room with Jim and Di settled in Trixie's room that sat down to explain all that has happened in the past 2 days.
'Oh my gosh!' Di managed to stutter out after they finished telling her about the shooting.
'And Jim's car has been stolen.' Trixie added.
Dan didn't know what to say, he just sat there shocked.
'Are you all okay? I mean after seeing that sort of thing i wouldn't blame you if you needed counselling or..' Di trailed off.
Honey spoke for them all. 'It was scary, but we have been through some pretty serious things. Getting tied up, kidnapped, we have experienced some scary things. I think that kind of prepared us in a way. And the guy who did it claims to not remember a thing and apologized to us! It is all a mess and i..we don't know what to think.'
'Even i'm confused!' Dan said finally. 'Why would someone steal your car? Have you heard anything from the police?'
Jim shook his head.
'And why would someone try to control another man and make him do..that?! I just doesn't make sense.'
'We know. It is all such a mess.' Mart sighed.
'Anyway, the police are focusing on that and lets just focus on having a good summer!' Trixie said smiling.
'What do you want to do first?' Brian asked no one in particular.
'I think we should go visit Mr Maypenny.' Dan said simply.
'That is a good idea!' Trixie jumped up from the couch and off they went.

Usually they would ride the horses but since they weren't here they would have to ride their bikes. Brian, Mart and Trixie all had their bikes and luckily enough Honey and Jim's had been kept there at Crabapple farm but Di and Dan didn't have a bike.
'We can take turns. Some ride for a while then swap over?' Jim suggested.
They all agreed to that idea. Honey and Trixie volunteered to be the first to walk and off they set towards Mr Maypenny's.

'I hope the police haven't forgot about Jim's car.' Honey said
'I know, he will need that!' Trixie agreed.
'Do you think it is connected with the shooting? I mean, Jim's car, a shooting possibly aimed at you...'
Trixie thought about it. 'I don't see any connection but maybe.'
'What were you doing out in the lobby anyway? Why did you suddenly run out?' Honey asked concerned.
'The lie we came up with about Brenden was eating away at me. They were sitting each side of me and i just couldn't take it. I told Jim about it when he came out.'
Honey nodded, 'I'm sorry i even came up with the cousin thing anyway. I know that we don't lie to each other and it was stupid.'
'It is fine. We talked last night and sorted it all out.' Trixie smiled.
'So what is going on with you and Brian hey?!' Trixie asked grinning.
Honey went beet red. 'He would always come over with Jim from college and so we got a lot closer..He really is lovely.'
Trixie winked at Honey, 'That's my brother, of course he is lovely!'
Honey laughed. 'You don't mind do you?' She asked avoiding Trixie's eyes.
'No of course not!' Trixie said giving Honey a half hug from the side as they walked along the road that lead to Mr Maypenny's.
'Good.' Honey beamed.

'Do you two want to take that short cut through the bush like we usually do?' Jim suddenly asked.
Trixie thought, looking at the small short cut they had found years ago. 'Sure!'
Trixie looked at the grass. It looked like someone had been down there recently..yet no one apart from the Bob-Whites knew about it. Even the small bush that was there to hide it was gone.
'Have any of you been down here recently?' Trixie asked.
They all shook their head.
'Well someone has found our secret short cut then..'
They followed the track like they usually would. But lots of tracks lead off from that one in all directions. Ones to big to be an animals and to small to be a cars.
'Someone has been coming down here a lot..but who?' Trixie asked.
'Lets follow one of the tracks. Just quickly.' Honey suggested.
The others dismounted from their bikes and together they all headed down one of the bigger tracks.
'It looks like it was made by a wheel-barra..' Dan said looking at the one wheel track.
The little track opened up to a big clearing and suddenly they all saw something that made them gasp.
Bushes and bushes of Marijuana.
