The Maple Street Mystery
By Liam

One day my best friend Ethan and I were playing Mario Kart 8 at Ethan’s house. We were having a blast until the news channel somehow came over the TV.
“We are very sorry for this interruption for this special broadcast!” said the news broadcaster.
“Yeah, you should be! I was winning!” I snapped.
“Calm down Lucas! We should be listening to this! It might be important!” said Ethan.
“Ugh Fine. Will you let me win next time?” I asked.
“Be quiet Lucas!” Ethan hollered.
“The house on Maple Street has reappeared again! This mysterious house seems to reappear and disappear. The house appears to be haunted!” the news broadcaster continued.
“Haunted? Pffffft,” I scoffed. “That can’t be true.”
“Lucas!” Ethan yelled.
“Again we are sorry and that is all,” the broadcaster finished.
“Strange,” Ethan said rubbing his chin. “How can that big house move all by itself?”
“Beats me,” I said shrugging my shoulders.
“Hey, do you want to try and check out that house tonight?” Ethan asked.
“Uhhh, yeah! But can we bring snacks this time?” I asked.
“Okay, fine,” answered Ethan rolling his eyes.
So when I got home that evening I asked my mom if I could have a sleepover at Ethan’s.
“Please mom,” I pleaded.
“Okay,” my mom sighed.
“Hooray!” I said stroking my dog Mr. Wuffles. His ears perked up after I said it.
Over at Ethan’s house was the same thing. “Hey Dad, can I go to a sleepover at Lucas’s?”
“Excellent idea Ethan!” he said. “How did you know I had work tonight?”
“Umm, lucky guess? Oh hi Lucy!” said Ethan trying to change the subject.
“Meow!” mewed the cat happily.
At 10:00 P.M. Ethan and I met at 105 Maple Street. “Do you have everything?” I asked
”Yep!” answered Ethan.
“Did you tell your mom you were going on a sleep over?” I asked.
Yeah. Did you?”
“Yep!” I said.
So we walked over to the door. “Ready?” I said when we were at the door. “Remember, push with your shoulder.”
“Yeah. I guess. Okay, 3, 2, 1, go!” Surprisingly the door was unlocked, so we tumbled right through.
“Ouchy! Huh, I guess ghosts don’t lock doors.”
“Really Ethan?” When we got up, my eyes widened. Everything was either flipped over or broken. “Whoa!” I said. “This place is crazy!” I walked over to the mantel because there was a picture. When I looked at the picture, the sight made me turn pale. The picture was a happy looking family, but everyone was crossed out except the father.
“Hey Lucas, what are you looking at?” Ethan asked walking over. Suddenly he stopped dead in his tracks. Then he fell backwards.
“Ethan are you alright?” I asked. All of a sudden my vision went black. When I regained conciseness, I was tied to a chair. “What the?”
“Oh you’re awake.”
“Who are you?”
”I’m Dr. Kroner PHD!”
“Hold it. Your name is doctor cheesy?”
“No you ignorant child it’s Kroner!” Dr. Kroner hissed.
“NO! It’s Kroner!”
While I was toying around with Dr. Kroner, secretly I was uniting the ropes! SNAP!!!
“Huh? Oh hey! Get back here!”
“No way Jose!” I said. While I was running away from Dr. Kroner I saw the deactivate switch for the house! “Hey! Dr. whatever your name is. Look! Your machines are going crazy! I yelled as I flipped the on switch to an invention
“M.T.T.A! No!” while Dr. Whatzit was turning off the machine I flipped the deactivate switch. Beeewooop…
“Huh? Oh no, what did you do you menace?”
“I don’t know!” I said.
“Tricked by a kid, ugh.”
“Well, I’m going to go untie my friend and then scoot on out,” I said as I strolled over to Ethan.
“Hey pal.”
“Dude what is goi-“
“What is that?”
“This is the shrink –o-Tron!!!” Dr. Kroner announced.
“Seriously?” I mocked.
“What?” Dr. Kroner answered confused.
“You came up with a good invention and you really can’t think of a good name for it?”
“That’s sad,” Ethan added.
“Also you’re holding it the wrong way,” I said.
“It’s a good name, and also no I am not!” Dr. Kroner said angrily.
“Yes you are,” Ethan said.
“Here. Look, I’ll turn it around for you two. Be quiet,” Dr. Kroner said frustrated.
“Now shrink us already!!!” we said together.
“Okay here goes nothing!” Dr. Kroner yelled.
“Hey! What’s going on?” said Dr. Kroner shrinking rapidly.
“Well, I think she is gone.”
“Can you untie my ropes now?” Ethan asked.
“Oh, yeah,” I answered.
“Now can we get out of here?”
“Yeah, let’s go!”
When I got home I went straight to bed, thinking of what just happened. The next morning when I went down stairs and plopped down on the couch next to Mr. Wuffles, I turned on the news. The headline was… Maple Street Mystery Solved!!!

The End!
