Book 3 of the Bob-Whites Summer series.


1. Fire!

Jim pulled up outside of the mansion and Honey jumped out racing for her home. A fireman came out from behind his truck, grabbing her and stopping her from getting any closer to the flames.

Trixie got out of the car and raced after her friend. Honey was sobbing and had crumpled into a heap on the ground. The fireman was trying to comfort her.

Brian and Jim followed Trixie. Trixie bent down beside Honey.

'Com'on Honey, come with me.' Trixie said soothingly.

Brian helped Honey up and the four friends went back to the car. Jim drove them down to Crabapple farm.

'Who would do something like this?' Jim asked as they helped Honey inside.

Mrs Wheeler came rushing to Honeys aid.

'Oh, darling its okay. Your father is up there helping put it out.'

She swept Honey into her arms. Jim stood looking through the lounge window up at his home. His real home.

'I can't believe this. Who would do that?' He asked.

Mrs Belden sat down on the couch, ushering Honey and Mrs Wheeler to sit too.

'I have no idea why anyone would do this, Jim.' Mrs Wheeler said, tears staining her own cheeks.

'I'm going up to help.' Jim said moving for the door.

'Me too.' Brian agreed.

'No, boys. I would rather you stay here and let the firemen do it. That way i know you are all safe.' Mrs Wheeler said.

'But i need to be helping.' Jim persisted.

'Jim, please.' Mrs Wheeler said looking at Honey.

Jim realized that it would make it easier for Honey if they stayed. He turned and went to stand by the heater.

Trixie, all the while, had been watching up at the flames covering the mansion from top to toe.

'Why.' she whispered.

Brian came over to his sister and put a arm around her, 'we will figure out who did this.' he said.

Trixie looked up at her brother, anger filling her eyes. She remembered all the times she had gone to that house, all the fun she had had. How she first met Honey there, and how she had had many sleepovers there. All the memories came flooding through her mind like a movie.

She looked back at the mansion.

'Yes, yes we will.' She said.
