My entry into the Last Line Blogfest over at Lilah Pierce's blog is from the manuscript Secrets at Wentworth. The girls have solved every mystery, identified a would-be killer/kidnapper and all is fine. A red herring mystery is referred to here. A teenager with a troubled past and a suspicious stable hand have been mysteriously entering the woods each night. They've been secretly repairing a burned out lodge against the wishes of the headmistress because of the expense. Now that the headmistress knows, she is going to provide extra funding and is not upset.
“Now they won’t have to work at night,” Annie said, on the bottom step. “If it’s finished this summer, we can use it before I go home for good.”
“Maybe you can come back,” Mindy said. “If you want to." When Annie blinked at her she went on. "We could write your folks, if we word it just right, they might decide to let you come to Wentworth for the fall.”
Come back? Annie remembered how she had fought against being sent to Wentworth, totally determined to hate every minute. But, somehow, the thought of never coming back... “Let’s start the letter tonight!” Annie took the stairs two at a time.
“Hey, what about me?” Mindy yelled. When her friend stopped and looked back, she pointed to her ankle.
“Oopsie,” Annie said, rushing back. “Sorry, crip, lean on me!”
