About a week passed without excitement. After the high of figuring out the closet deal, the low of nothing happening moved in. Abby was still being Abby. She wasn’t talking to Ben. This was fine with Ethan, he was making plans for starting a retirement fund.
Although Mia was impressed when Ethan told her about his closet sleuthing, she was still convinced Ben was guilty. He did play hockey, you know.
“I bet he just set that stuff up himself. Why do you think he didn’t let you examine the closet the first night you went over there? Because he had to set it up right. He’s playing you,” Mia said confidently.

“Wow, this is awesome,” Ben said looking through the pictures on his iPad. “They are definitely getting in through the closet.” Ben kept scrolling through the pictures, looking at everything over and over again.
“Will it be enough though?” asked Ethan.
“Probably not. I mean, it’s good, but we need something more. Definite proof they are getting through. For all the police know, I did this to make them look guilty.”
Ethan and Ben sat and thought about how to get more evidence. Or, Ben did, Ethan wasn’t thinking about it anymore. He was thinking about whether it was time for lunch yet.

Ethan typically got out of bed at 9 in the summer. But today he was up early. 8:57 to be exact. He ate a quick breakfast and then prepared himself for the day’s mission. He put on black shorts, black socks, and a black shirt. Ninjas wear black, probably not black shorts, but it was hot. Ethan needed all the ninja he could get.
He didn’t tell anyone in his family what he was doing, just in case someone had a problem with it. Better not to say anything than to say stuff that ruins your fun. Ethan’s sisters were still sleeping when he left, and his parents were gone.
Ben was waiting for him when he showed up. “The neighbors are gone. I watched them leave,” Ben said as Ethan came in the door.
“OK, well, let’s do this thing!” Ethan said with his ninja game face on.
They went into Ben’s dad’s room where the closet door was open and a step ladder had been set up. “If you can get on that, I think you should be able to see over the wall, and depending on what’s over there, maybe get up in there,” Ben said. “I tried looking in there earlier, but my head was too big to see much. I figured I’d let a little person get in there.”

Ethan ran out of his room, up the stairs, and into the kitchen. “I figured it out, Abby! I figured it out! It’s the closets! Ben is innocent!”
“What?” Abby asked with a dismissive, offended, oh so typical high school girl look on her face.
“Trust me, it’s the closets. I have to tell Ben.” Ethan ran out the back door. He grabbed a bike and took off. After a quarter mile or so, he realized he was on his sister’s bike, but whatever! It got him moving.
Ethan got to Ben’s house, threw the bike on the ground, ran to the porch, and rang the doorbell.
“I figured it out!” Ethan said when Ben opened the front door. Ethan went in Ben’s house and sat down, breathing too hard to speak. Ben got him a glass of water. “I figured it out!” Ethan said again.

In all honesty, it was killing Ethan that he didn’t know what was in Abby’s letter. After Ben gave Ethan the letter to deliver, it crossed his mind to open the envelope and read it. He actually attempted to open the envelope, but it tore. He was afraid further opening would tear it worse. Ethan backed off. He tried holding it up to the sun too, hoping the light would reveal some words. Didn’t work.
Ethan paced in his room and devised a plan to sneak into Abby’s room later. Ethan already knew all the good hiding spots in her room. She apparently didn’t know that, because she kept putting things in those spots. He knew the letter would end up in one of them.

Well, as everyone knows, when things are going well, that’s when you should be most worried. Things were going well for Abby and Ben. All was right in their little world. It was precious, and cute, and adorable, but mostly nauseating for Ethan and Mia.
Things continued going well for one whole week. Then one night Abby came home from work in tears. Again. Straight to her room. Again her mom went in to find out what was up.
Mia and Ethan tried to listen through the wall. Again. They still couldn’t hear anything except the muffled sounds of Abby tormentedly saying something or other. Mia and Ethan could hardly contain their curiosity and excitement. “I might get my 20 bucks back!” Mia said.

Abby came home from work very happy. This was always a scary thing for her family. Happy means hyper. Hyper means people get hurt.
“Guys, guess what? This is so awesome” she yelled as she came in the door.
Her mother kindly and interestedly said “What?” with actual excitement.
Her dad said “Oh dear, what now?”
Her brother and sister barely noticed her presence.
“Ben and I are like, totally back together. The police have cleared their names. They don’t have any drug suspicions toward them at all. So, Ben and I are totally cool now. We’re back together! Isn’t that great?”
“I thought you already were back together,” said a disinterested and confused Ethan.
