Finally here’s the second chapter. This started out as a short piece, but mutated into a full flown story.
Chapter Two: Not So Secret Romance.
She picked up the tray and walked into the living room. Dave had gone out to do the grocery shopping, and Theodore and Eleanor were baking cookies in the kitchen. Brittany cautiously approached her sister who was sitting next the Simon in the arm chair. They were both chattering and laughing as the commercial came on.
Brittany not so subtlety cleared her throat. “Hey, guys,” she said as Jeanette looked over at her. “Look what I found.”
Simon looked embarrassed seeing the saucer that contained the midnight snack he had shared with Jeanette. “Where did you find that?”
“On the back porch as if you didn’t know,” Brittany said. “So which one of you wants to spill?”
Jeanette jumped down from the chair and stood in front of her sister. “Brittany, it was just a little midnight snack. You do it all the time.”
“Okay,” Brittany said and walked towards the kitchen. She turned back as Jeanette hopped back on the chair. “I know something’s going on, and I’m going to find out what.”
With that she turned to her walk to the kitchen and placed the dish and teacups in the sink. She didn’t bother washing them. She had something more important to do. Jeanette watched her as Brittany walked out into the hallway. Jeanette looked nervous as she sat back down next to Simon.
“Something wrong?” Simon asked her.
“Not really, but Brittany is way too suspicious right now,” she said. Their program had just come back on, and Simon put his arm around her shoulders.
“Don’t worry about it,” he said as they both settled down.
In the Chipettes bedroom Brittany was on a mission. Jeanette was hiding something, and she was going to find out what. She thought for a moment what Jeanette could be hiding, and she figured the best place to look would be her diary. Brittany knew she kept it under her pillow. She pulled it out and noticed that Jeanette had forgotten to lock it. She knew it would be breaking the number one diary rule, but she just couldn’t help herself. She opened it up and turned to the last entry. Brittany quickly read it and was in shock.
