|The case of the
I was a Nancy Drew buff in the 60's
so I wrote my own Nancy Drew type story
hope you like it
School was out for the summer and
life for the Taylor kids was very boring.
jean and Jim Taylor were 13 year old twins
and very active teens, who loved to explore things,
both of them were very fond of mystery's and trying to solving
they were well know for causing quite a stir in town now and then.
you would have thought they were Nancy drew and one of the hardy
the way they acted sometimes,
one morning, as they sat outside in
the shade of the old oak tree.
jean said," Jim let's go exploring maybe we can find some
Jim said ,"yeah maybe," and then they both laughed,
Jim said, "come on lets go ask mom if its alright if we
they ran inside to where Mrs. Taylor was doing laundry
they both called out "mom"," mom" as they ran
over to her.
"yes" ,she said," what's up? you two look
"we wanted to know if we could go exploring we're
bored", said jean.
"please mom, pleaseeeeeee," they both chimed in at the
Mrs. Taylor laughed ,"how can I say no to that," she
said with a grin.
"I guess it will be ok ,just be careful and don't get into
and be home before dark"," we will", they both said
and off they went.
as they were walking jean
said," hey Jim remember the old Jenkins
place over on west shore drive it burned down last week lets go
"yeah" said Jim, "maybe we will find buried
treasure over there,"
"yeah" laughed jean," then we could be rich",
then they both laughed.
a few minutes later they arrived at the Jenkins place.
"wow" said Jim, "that must of been quite a fire,
there really isn't much left is there."
then they spent the next couple of hours digging thru the ashes
hoping they would find something worth finding.
all of a sudden jean let out a
yelp," Jim look hurry come see this".
Jim rushed over to where jean was digging
she was sitting down with a box of some sort in her lap.
Jim sat down next to her and said ,"what is it jean?"
jean said," I am not sure Jim it has a lock on it."
as she wiped the ashes and soot off it she said "look Jim
isn't it a beautiful box"
"it sure is" said Jim, "the box is so nice that it
must have something more beautiful inside it".
but what Jim and jean was unaware of is while they were so excited
about their treasure find
they hadn't seen the man that was hiding behind the trees watching
Jim said "well its getting late jean so lets take our
treasure home before it gets dark
we can find something there to open it with", "ok said
so they left but unknown to them the stranger was right behind
