Nancy’s Diary

Dear Diary,

We went on a triple date today!  It was so fun, and I almost forgot the mystery! Almost.  We went to a place called Ramsey’s Diner, and it was really fancy! Then we went to a really big mall, right off campus.  We bought some things, and then I saw someone take my picture!  I quickly told Ned, and we raced after the suspect.  Ned is a superb runner, and caught up to the man in an instant.  I soon followed, with the others close behind. The man struggled to get away, but just when he was about to, Burt and Dave gripped him, and their combined force held him down.  He denied everything!  I noticed a bag that was slung around his shoulder, and grabbed it away.  He yelled at me, saying that I had to give it back, but I had already gotten a camera out of the tote.  I turned it on, and looked at the pictures.  They were of me!  The man knew his game was up.  He kept screaming though, and soon a police guard walked over.  “What’s the racket,” he said, annoyed.  He must have been taking a lunch break, which we had interrupted.  We told him all abou t it, and he saw the pictures.  He told us he we take the man in, and we watched as the man who had taken my picture was carried away.  We spent the rest of the day shopping, eating, and having fun.  No day seems to go by without excitement!

Dear Diary,

Today was an exciting day! After taking off at 5:30 a.m., I picked up Bess and George. Then we started our route to Emerson. Secretly, George told me that she thought someone was following us! She told me not to worry Bess, and I honored her request.  When we later stopped at a restaurant, our suspicions were affirmed when the car parked next to us. We all walked in, and later I saw a man follow. We decided to tell Bess, since we would have to lose the man. As we guessed, she was frightened. We told her that we knew what to do, although we had no idea. Finally, I devised a plan that we would stay at a hotel for the night. We left, one by one, and drove on towards the Rosemary Hotel.  The next day was uneventful, and we got to Emerson College with no further trouble, which is good, cause I am tired, and am sure the others are too!



Chapter 1: Traitor

It was a lazy summer day in Georgia, and Isabel Larkin was sitting on the steps of her favorite library.  She was reading her favorite book, Emma, by Jane Austen. She had just finished the 5th chapter when her friend, Lilly Mason, walked around the bend with Alissa Benson, Margie Struth, and Chrissie Marvin, the most popular girls in school.  Isabel thought this was weird, since Alissa, Margie, and Chrissie usually ignored Lilly and her.  The only time they were talked to by the three girls was to be scolded or bullied.  To Isabel’s greater surprise, Lilly was laughing with the three girls.  All the people were wealthy in this town, so no one could be less popular because of money.  But the three most popular girls in school were Alissa, Margie, and Chrissie, because they always seemed to be in the know, and have the most fashionable clothes in Brookwood Middleschool.  As the four girls passed, Isabel gave Lilly a questioning look, but Lilly just ignored her. “Hi,” said all four girls in unison. “Hello, Alissa, Margie, Chrissie, and Lily,” I answered. “She doesn’t go by Lilly anymore,” they said, again in unison,”It’s Lillian,”  Isabel blinked. Lilly, now Lillian, had told her that she hated the name Lillian.(No offense to you with that name!!!)  Now she was getting in trouble because she didntt know. “We are off to the movies,” they said, as if taunting her. “And don’t follow, just read your dum book, I mean really, who still reads these days? It is so old fashioned,” Margie said, and a chorus of “Ya’s”  followed.  “Like your clothes, are those from the middle ages?” The girls laughed and walked on.  Isabel couldn’t believe it. Her so-called friend had turned her back on her! Lillian had laughed at her, Isabel, her best friend. Well, her was best friend.

End of Chapter 1

Diary Entry 4

Dear Diary,for the

Tomorrow, I am going to Emerson.  But today I got a lot of clues. I asked Mrs. Oakley for her realtor’s card.  When she gave me the card, I looked at the address and decided that was my next destination.  I drove in my convertible to the address, but when I came there, it said that the business had moved. I walked over and asked a nearby person if he knew where the business had moved too.  He told me it was now in the mall, so I drove to the River Heights Mall, and inquired where the business was.  They told me thay had never heard of it! I walked around anyway, but did not see anything that would help.  After calling and reporting to Mrs. Oakley, who was astounded at the news, I drove home for dinner and to pack.

Wonderingly, (again?)
