Jazzy's Choose Your Own Adventure Chapter 15
When Things Got Weird Part 15
WHAT? I thought she was on our side! I quickly turned around and whispered to Anastasia, "It's Mrs Sweet!"
Anastasia looked stunned and peered in. She yelled. I glared at her and cupped my hand over her mouth, but it was too late. I could hear Mrs Sweet cursing at being discovered and nudged Anastasia and looked pointedly at the front door. She nodded and we stealthily tiptoed out.
I gestured at a blackberry bush nearby. Anastasia slowly shook her head, but I pushed her in. I dove inside at the same instant Mrs Sweet came outside, shouting.
"You had to choose a blackberry bush." Anastasia complained, showing me her many bleeding cuts and grazes.
I ignored her. "Shhh. Mrs Sweet sure is angry, isn't she?"
"Yes, but we should probably be quiet, shouldn't we? We don't want to be noticed."
I fell silent and watched Mrs Sweet searching for intruders. It was only a matter of time until we were discovered…
A shadow fell over our bush. Anastasia and I held our breaths as torchlight shone above us. Mrs Sweet soon seemed convinced that no-one was there and walked away.
Anastasia sighed loudly in relief. I did too as we crawled from the bushes. We realised we should have kept still when we heard humming at the door; it was an annoying tune that my sister always sang in the shower.
Melanie had noticed us. She walked over to us but didn’t say, "hello". She hoisted us under each arm. She was surprisingly strong. There was a crazed glint in her eyes.
"I have them!" My sister yelled. Mrs Sweet returned to the scene, smiling menacingly.
"Well, well, well. Who do we have here?" She hissed.
"Your two nosey students. What price should they pay for listening in on us?" Melanie grinned.
"Leave them with me. I have a plan for them."
I couldn't believe it. My own sister had turned my best friend and I over to someone
I had once trusted. But now my School Principal was a lunatic.
