Zoey's had a mishap which led to a trip to the emergency room. She's now home resting and her plans have gone awry. Something strange is going on at the old stone house and Zoey is determined to find out just exactly what that is.

Restless night

When Zoey came home from the hospital she went straight to bed. It felt like her whole body hurt. What was even worse was that she'd never even made it near the old stone house. Her accident happened in the park. Zoey fell asleep thinking about plans she could make but it was hard being laid up in bed. Duece had heard about the accident and called to wish her well. Now they were both sidelined and the only one still in one piece was her cousin Chloe. The problem with that was that Chloe wasn't the bravest soul in the world. There was no way she'd venture down to the old stone house without backup.

Rainy Day

Zoey woke up to the sound of rain hitting the window pane. She felt like a truck had driven over her and then backed up and did it again. There was no way she'd be leaving the house today. She'd have to make plans for her spy mission from bed. Duece was still home so maybe she could call him and they could come up with some ideas together. If there was one thing Zoey knew it was that being a spy was hard work. She always went undercover so that made it even more difficult.

Spending the day in bed

Zoey spent the day resting in bed and reading her spy novels. She bought all her books from the neighborhood used book store. Lucky for her she had three new spy thrillers sitting on her nightstand. One of the books may give her some ideas on how to proceed with her new assignment. It's a good thing Zoey is in charge of operations because if she had to answer to someone that might not go well. It didn't matter though because she was the chief undercover spy and she said what should and should not be done. It was her way or no way. She made the rules up as she went along.

A new idea

Zoey was half way through her newest thriller when an idea popped into her head. It was so simple. Why hadn't she thought of this before. It had been right there in front of her all along. It was like a light bulb being turned on. She called Duece and ran it by him. He thought it actually might work. He gave Zoey credit for coming up with such a brilliant idea. It was so simple that it defied any type of reasoning. She would simply ask mom to make a cake for the new neighbors. Then, mom, Zoey, Chloe, Bernard and Duece would walk down to the old stone house and introduce themselves. The only problem was would mom actually go along with it. Mom was sure the house was haunted. Bernard never wanted to do anything but study his books and if Chloe heard one word about a haunted house they'd never get her out of her room. She'd lock herself inside and she'd remain there for the rest of the summer. Of course this plan would have to wait a few days until she recovered from her fall and Duece could walk again.
