Shot in the Dark

by Maddy Oftedahl | Score: 3200

Sabrina came in and she took a seat beside her best friend Mac. "Hey isn't it weird that they have called a town meeting?" She looked at Mac and laughed since he had a halarious smile on his face. "Ya I guess it is!" 

The mayor walked over to the front and said. "I must ask if you agree that we must declare a war on Clue Island! They have been causing to much trouble these days!" Mac gasped his family had been from Clue Island. He stood up and ran out of the room Sabrina slowly behind.


Sabrina came to find Mac curled up on his bed starring off into space. Sabrina sat down next to him and said, "I know your family will be alright! Your dad's advertising excutive job will give them enough money and supplies to be safe." Mac looked up and pouted. "Fine..." He was cut off because a letter came flying through the window.  Sabrina jumped up and grabbed it. She opened it. "Its a clue! It says look for a wrinkle in time to save you terrible parents!" She gasped. They're other friend Sally came running in crying. "So much is happening! Neing a marketing director is making my life terrible! And are best plane crashed!!"
