Chapter 15 – Part 4

 

Every set of eyes was on Logan now, and he looked down, unable to meet Mark and Andrew’s eyes. What he couldn’t figure out was George. How George had become strange all of a sudden and what’s gotten into him.

“Of course I haven’t forgotten,” Logan muttered. “It’s just – there’s just one thing.”

“What’s that?” snapped George.

Logan knew very well that George was losing his patience, but he must do the right thing: to reveal the whole truth, since there’s no turning back now. He wished he didn’t have to do this. But if Andrew could do it – to act loyal and brave, and to admit his own fault – so could he.

He took a deep breath. “Remember, buddy?” he asked. “We’re supposed to cover up for Jenny’s break-in. So she could get the antiques – for whatever the reason it is.” Then his voice lost its daringness. He said quite flatly, “You and Becky get cash for the job. And I get a date with Jenny.” Logan quickly turned his head to one side without actually looking at the cowboy and Mark. “Sorry.”

Andrew and Mark gasped. “Thief” had been with them the entire time, and they didn’t even know it!
