It was the NASCAR championship and the famous racer Joe Devado, 4-time world champion, was competing against many racers from places around the world including Italy, France, Spain and the Czech Republic.  His family had been in NASCAR for five generations.  At seven years old he lost his father when his car exploded because the motor temperature was too high.

Joe didn’t have a passion for car racing and was afraid of dying because he didn’t want his beautiful wife Mary or children to go through the agony that he, his mother, and his brother endured when his father perished. He also was bored with his celebrity life and tired of the press intruding in his personal life.

Joe was on his last lap and was bumped by another car. His car swerved and hit the wall.  His car tumbled over three times, burst into flames and was hit broad side by another car.  The crowd was devastated at the sight of the explosion, and his wife and mother shrieked in horror.

Hello. My name is Professor Nikolai Baranowski. I am a well known scientist working on finding a cure for cancer. However, this story you are going to read has nothing to do with me. Well, maybe a little.

I was quietly sitting in my laboratory, writing notes in my little notebook, until Frederique Teth burst into my room without knocking.

“Edward Cully is going to get the mansion!” She said, breathing heavily with her bright and straightened teeth shining along with a beautiful smile. Frederique was a detective and she never left one mystery behind to solve. Some people tried to pull mystery tricks on her, but she’ll always find criminal and the truth. Continue reading

Chapter one: a stolen car

I was playing cards when Lucas called me: “My cousin Antoine invited Romain and me to visit him in Louisiana. Want to come?”

Lucas was my best friend. He was small with blond hair and had a little round shape around the waist.

On the opposite side, Romain had brown hair, was tall and very athletic. Lucas and his cousin, Romain, are really different.

I answered: “Yes, it sure will be fun! Come to my house in 30 minutes, OK?”

Dawn broke when I felt my dog licking my face, while my mom was yelling that breakfast was ready. I stretched and by accident knocked my dog off the bed. I lightly picked him up and slowly headed down stairs. After breakfast I picked up a pair of jeans and a T-shirt like usual. I reached down for my shoes when I heard someone screaming outside. I turned to the window when I saw a young woman panicking. Something bad must have happened. I quickly slipped on my shoes and ran outside to see if she needed help. Continue reading
