New Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley #43: The Case Of The Haunted Maze
(The Case Of The Haunted Maze)
"So, where is the famous maze?" I asked my friend Mitch Mason.
Mitch, my sister Ashley, and I stood on the back porch of Mitch's house. The two of us were visiting Mitch's family farm. The air was crisp, and the leaves had already begun turning colors. It was the perfect place to spend Halloween.
Mitch plopped onto the porch swing. His red hair sparkled in the sunlight. "The maze is behind the barn," he said finally. He grabbed a handful of candy corn from a bowl on the table next to him and popped some into his mouth.
Mitch used to go to our school before his family moved. All year long Mitch wrote us e-mails about his new life on the farm. He wrote a lot about the maze. It was made of rows of tall shrubs planted close together in twisting, turning paths and dead ends. People were always stopping by to try to find their way through it.
We wrote Mitch too-about all the mysteries we solve. We had plenty to write about! Ashley and I are the Trenchcoat Twins. We run the Olsen and Olsen Detective Agency. Our office is in the attic of our house.
"You wrote us so much about the maze, we can't wait to see it," Ashley said.
Mitch gave himself a little push on the porch swing. "Don't you want to see the farm animals first?" he asked.
"Farm animals?" Ashley said. Her blue eyes sparkled. She loves all kinds of animals.
Mitch smiled at Ashley. "Sure," he said.
He hopped off the swing. "We'll check out the ducks first, and then we'll go to the barn to see the horses."
Mitch led us down a little hill, and we came to a pond. A teenage girl in a pink sweater and blue jeans stood beside the water with a little boy. Her long hair was the same color as Mitch's. Red. She was handing the little boy bits of bread so that he could feed the ducks.
"Remember my sister, Rachel?" Mitch whispered to us. He put a finger to his lips and tiptoed up behind her. As soon as he was almost on top of her he yelled, "Quack! Quack!"
It wasn't a very good duck imitation, but it startled his sister. She let out a shriek and whirled around. The little boy started giggling, but Rachel scowled.New Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley #43: The Case Of The Haunted Maze
