Murder at the Holmes House
I woke up on a dreary Thursday morning. “Looks like we’re going to get some rain today,” I think to myself as I get ready for school. But, all I could think of is what happened to Mrs. Ritz and Ricky the previous week.
As I arrived at school it had started to rain. “Oh, joy the rain,” I think to myself as I park my car and walked in.
Even though it was a week ago it still feels strange not having Creative Writing.
“Hey Megan,” call Selby.
“Hey, Selby,” I said.
“What’s up,” she asked in her usual prep manner.
“Nothing much. Still thinking about what happened last week,” I said.
“I know. I wonder who could have done it.”
“The police have three suspects,” I said.
“Really, who?”
“There’s Chris, because Ricky and Mrs. Ritz had found out about his plans to hack into the school’s system to change his grades.”
“Then, there is Brea because Ricky wouldn’t go out with her and she just didn’t like Mrs. Ritz.”
“Lastly, there’s Mr. Drew, because Mrs. Ritz turned him down so many times.
“Hey, maybe we can find out who kill Mrs. Ritz and Ricky,” said Selby.
“Now Selby you know that’s for the police,” I said.
“I’m serious,” she said. “And besides what else to we have to do we don’t have class anyway.”
“Alright then I’m in, but we got to be discreet about it.”
“K,” Selby said.
As the day wore on me and Selby asked around. All of the suspects denied killing Ricky and Mrs. Ritz of course. But, we did find out something interesting about Chris. He’s really good with poisons. Which is how both victims were killed. Not only that he hasn’t been acting since the murders.
“Could it be he just feels guilty about what happened , and that he couldn’t patch things up with them,” ask Selby.
“I don’t know maybe,” I said.
“But, what about the other two suspects,” I asked.
“They have been acting strange too,” said Selby.
“I don’t know about you Selby, but I think we need to go to the scene of the crime.”
When we got to the scene we found it like it always had been. The only thing different was the crime scene tape that had been left by the police.
“I missed being here,” Selby said.
“It’ll never be the same though,” I said.
“I know,” Selby said.
“Why’d it have to be at the Holmes House,” she asked longingly.
“Let get started,” I said taking charge.
As we looked we found that nothing out of the ordinary.
“Didn’t you say that Chris was good with poisons,” I asked.
“Yea,” said Selby.
“But, the poisons that were used were from medicines that you can easily get over the counter, and everyone knows what happens if a person take too much of the drugs that were found in their system.”
“Hey who’s that,” Selby asked.
Then, everything went dark.
