“I have some news too, your mother, she gave something to my Father. But, my Father hid it from me, so I can’t find it on my own, what do you say? Will you come and find the item that belonged to your Mother?”
“Say, yes Jade! Say yes!” Arrow whispered, keen to find this object.
“Okay..I will do it…”
“Where should we look first?” asked Arrow.
“Ummm, what ‘bout your old house, Jade?” Luke pointed out.
“Er..Okay, sure!” agreed Jade.
“But, what even is the thingymajig?” Luke pondered.
“Hmmmm, I dunno, but my mum always liked shiny stuff, if that helps.”
“Maybe it could be a jewel or a mini mirror?”
“Yeah, maybe. We should get going though so c’mon, I have the perfect thing to get us there!” Arrow grinned.
The three headed through the small village, Arrow leading the way. Finally, they reached their destination.
“Ta-da!” Arrow squealed, showing them a rusted automobile.
“Woah! How did yuh get one of these?” Luke was shocked and overjoyed all at once.
“Stole it, from a rich ole’ lad,” Arrow replied, her eyes wide.
“Arrow! Seriously? You stole it?” Jade was frustrated that it was stolen but at least she could find her mother’s special item.
“C’mon!” Arrow yelped and jumped in the automobile and off the three went.
“Here we are: Winters’ Mansion!” Jade leaped out of the cart and headed straight to the mansion. She was home, at last. Wondering if any of the old maids were still living there, Jade knocked on the glamorous front door.
“HELLO?” Luke called through the letterbox. Arrow barked at the door until someone came. It was maid 226. Her real name was Katlyn Boujwa.
“Can I help tu?” Katlyn asked.
“Uhm, what’s yes in french?” whispered Jade.
“It’s ‘wi’,” Luke giggled.
“Wi!” Jade said to the maid “Can I come in, it’s mwa, Jade.”
“Ah, why didn’t tu say so? Come een, come een!” Katlyn laughed and led Jade to her bedroom.
“Home at last!” Jade squealed, flopping on her four poster bed.
“So this is your room?” Luke grinned, ready to find the secret object.
“Do you have anything…shiny?” Arrow asked, sniffing around.
“I have a diamond and a few necklaces…”
“Diamond? That could be it! They are valuable and have secrets and anything could happen! That’s it Jade, we’ve found it! Where is it?” Luke shrieked in happiness.
“In here,” Jade opened a chest of drawers and held up the diamond to the light. She looked at the engravings but as she found a slightly interesting one the diamond was snatched from her hands.
Jaz Kruust, the evil mansion chef, stood in the doorway, diamond in hand.
“Thank you,” he snarled and sauntered away.
