Chapter 13 – Part 9


Mark had a strange feeling that he was being chased. Sure enough, he looked over his shoulder to see Diane leaping over the shrub. She was heading this way and gaining on him. He screamed and stumbled.

Jason and Corey came to his rescue. “Let’s get her!” shouted Corey and the two charged madly toward her.

The tide had turned. Now the boys were dashing after Diane.

But now Diane was up to her own zigzag trick: a sharp turn to the left and then immediately to the right. And just when the boys thought they had her, she took an abrupt u-turn and zigzagged in the opposite direction.

Mark’s eyes widened. “What was that?”

Jason and Corey didn’t get a chance to reply. They’d both crashed into a nearby tree.
