To Be Continued…
In last month’s issue of To Be Continued… Bianca Barker is a young detective in training who loves a good mystery. When the Riverwood High Masquerade Queen’s crown is stolen however, she finally gets a mystery to solve.
The red and blue lights illuminated the front of the school. A mixture of upset neighbours in night gowns and high school students in dresses crowded together behind the police line. I sat next to the ambulance where a paramedic finished checking me over for any scrapes or cuts the glass shards could have left on my skin. Suddenly a blanket was placed over my shoulders and I jumped at the felling of the scratchy cotton on my bare arms.
“Easy there, tiger…” Finn said, putting his hands up to defend …show more content…

We waited in the alley beside the school until only one squad car remained: the poor deputy that was placed on night watch. Luckily for us, “night watch” duty in the RWPD is basically “nap in your squad car” duty. We waited until we were sure we could hear the Deputy snoring, and snuck quickly through the school doors.
“Man, these people deserve to be stolen from. They don’t even lock the doors.” Finn said.

There wasn’t much in it, just empty shelves and a couple of dusty tables. At the far end of the room, a few dark objects sat on a table.
“What’s that?” Finn asked pointing at the dark shapes. I shone my flashlight in that direction and revealed three objects: the first a pair of red stained converse sneakers, the second an old, rusty hammer, and the third the glittering Masquerade Crown.
“Well that was easy.” I said. I realize now that I spoke to
