The Runaway Orphans: Chapter 4: The Clue Of Clues
If you haven’t read chapters 1-3, you should read them before reading this because you won’t know what’s going on.
“Maybe.” Said Abigail. “I don’t know, but Hopefully.” CREEK “Mark!?! “Sorry” They heard footsteps outside. “Come on Mark now we’re trapped!” “What are we going to do?” Said Mark. “Hide” Abby said, “Someone’s coming. Where should we hide?” “Let’s hide behind the shelf ” “Ok” Mark said “Oh, I don’t think there is enough room”, Mark said. “Yes there is just get behind it.” Abby said. “Fine were going to get squished”. “At least it’s a place to hide” Said Mark. they snuck over to the shelf and hide in the small gap. “Oh no my foot sticks out” said Abby “it’s ok” Mark said “as long as he does not see us”.
5 seconds later, the door opened from the other side of the room and a tall, skinny figure walked in. He started walking towards them. He picked up a couple of papers out of the printer and then said “No no noooo, this is not right, it has to in color, Arrrggg” just then he walked over to the printer and put a paper back in and clicked a bunch of buttons. Then he went over to the shelf to get the color and then the kids threw a paint bucket at the printer, threw the shelf holes and broke the printer. “What!” he yelled “My printer!!” he started to look around for something that that could throw a paint bucket. At that moment Abby tripped over a rock behind the shelf and fell into a hole that was covered in blankets “AAAAAAAAAA” Her voice slowly faded as she fell until he could not hear her anymore ”Gulp” Mark swallows hard. “Get caught or go down a hole. I don’t not know where it goes” “MARK COME ON IT’S SAFE” “OK” “WHAT, HOW DID YOU ESCAPE KIDS” “None of your business buddy” Mark jelled as he went down the tunnel.
The tunnel went on forever as they slid down and then all of the sudden they heard a ear splitting POP!!!! Then Mark jelled “OWWW MY EARS” “Shhhh we want him to think we are dead”. Said Abby “Oh ok” said Mark They laid down on the ground, pretending they were dead so that he would think they were dead. Mark even had his tongue sticking out. “Where are we Abby?” “I don’t know but be silent” Just then, they heard footsteps approaching them. They quickly got into the dead position. “Well, well, well, look what we have here, a free fortune is what it is. I would have made them lead me to their fortune down here but I can find it. By scanning their brains Now, I just need to figure out where they are hiding all that money. He started walking away, but then Mark was starting to feel a little cough coming, then it was starting to get bigger and bigger until, “AHH CHOO! Sorry it’s really dusty down here”” Then the man turned around and looked back at them, but they were already gone.
