“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.
“I think the only thing I can do is set up the camera in this closet and wait and see if they come through again,” Ben said. Ben got the camera out of his room and put it in the closet behind some clothes with the lens poking through a hole in the pile of clothes.
“I guess that’s all we can do now,” Ben said. “Thanks for your help.”
“No problem,” Ethan said.
“Do you think Abby will talk to me yet?”
“I don’t know,” said Ethan, kind of hoping he could make more money! “Probably not, she’s pretty upset.”
“I figured. Could you deliver another letter to her? I’ll give you five more bucks.”
Sweet! “Yeah, sure, I suppose,” Ethan said.
Ethan biked home and entered the house singing.
Babies say I’m awesome
And I agree
Cuz I am.
Chickens say I’m awesome
And I agree
Cuz I still am.
If there had been anyone there to hear him, they would have been annoyed. But they wasn’t. So Ethan sat with his awesomeness and played on his iPad. A case solved and another $5 made. Can’t beat that.
