    Masters of the elements

    ELENA: "Hello?" She said as she walked up to number 101 on Oak Rd. She rang the door bell, "bird seed for sale. Free cookie for every box bought!" This was the begining of her plan. Elenas old girl scout uniform had still fit over her body. She had been anoyed when her TV cept flashing that message. "*chsh* cookie? Did you say, free cookie?!" Said a voice over a mic. "Yes sir, free cookie with ever bag of bird seed you buy. I'll diliver it to you now if you want." Elena crossed her fingers hoping she, the sparrow, and the chipmunk, would be able to enter. Then loot the bacement. "*Chsh* come in come in, go into the kichen, i would like three bags of bird seed please. With the cookies." "Thank you sir, can i have a name?" "Of corse mam'a, my name is Andrew." Elena scribbled on her fake seed sheet. "They will be there shortly." Elena opend the door and walked into a long hall way. Droped off the bird seed, and cookies, and quietly steaped into the bacement. A boy, that looked to be therteen or forteen was looking at a screen, that had herself and many other people like, Alex? Why would this boy look at her and Alexes profiles. "Cippey do your stuff, Drew, bag it" she said handing the sparrow a bag. DREW: flew accrosd the room silenter than sulace itself. Then cover the boys head with a bag. Drew, useing his talonts, closed the draw string, with the help of chippy. ELENA: Ran over and tied him up. "We have cought our black-mailer!" Elena looked at the screens, one had a girl, drowning under water.
