Zoey and her best friend Duece are in the midst of an undercover operation. They'd had a little mishap and Duece was limping along but they were almost at their destination. Zoey was determined to find out what was really going on at the old stone house.

Reaching their target

It was almost 12:30 by the time they reached the house. Duece was limping and the night vision binoculars only had one lens left in them. This was a top secret operation and Zoey knew they had to expect a few little mishaps along the way. Duece was feeling sick to his stomach. He just knew this night was going to end badly. If he got caught life would never be the same again. Zoey was such a lovable dragon but she always let her curiosity get the best of her. Duece was seriously starting to question his sanity. They were walking near the trees and bushes to stay under cover. Something poked Duece in the arm. It scared him half to death. He jumped and turned around to fight. It was Zoey. He started to yell at her and remembered they had to be quiet. Zoey was pointing toward the back of the house. Duece saw a shadow near the garage. His heart was beating so fast he felt like he couldn't breath.

Voices

Zoey and Duece remained as silent as they possibly could. Duece wasn't even sure he was breathing. He was too scared. If he ever got out of this he would seriously ask mom if he could get some counseling. There was a distinct possibility something was wrong with him. He knew no one that would do something like this. That is except for Zoey and maybe she should go to counseling with him. They were kneeling in the bushes but Duece thought they needed more cover. He felt like his one knee was starting to go numb. How was he supposed to run if they needed to get the heck out of there. He looked up in the sky and could see the stars. This would probably be the last time he ever saw a star. If someone should spot them they could be in serious trouble. For one thing they could be killed but then again someone could kidnap them and hold them for ransom or even worse what if they called the police. Duece wondered how long they would go to jail for if they got caught. There would probably be a list of charges a mile long. He was starting to feel sick again. Mom would have to come and bail him out if they'd even let her do it. He'd be going up the river for a long time. Maybe that was down the river. He didn't know but he was seriously going to throw up. Zoey was edging closer to the garage. She could hear more than one person talking but she had to get closer because she couldn't hear what they were saying. Duece saw Zoey getting closer and he tried to pull her back but he couldn't do it. She was too strong for him. He heard a male voice and he was obviously talking to someone.

Run for your life

Duece was still kneeling down behind the bushes and when Zoey tried to get closer she stepped on a twig and in the still of night it sounded like a tree being hit by lightning. The voices stopped and Zoey took off running. Duece was right on her tail. His leg was hurting but he didn't care. He was running for his life. They ran all the way to old man Bailey's house. There was a board sticking out on the side of the house and Duece didn't see it. He ran smack dab into the corner of it. He just kept on running. They ran to the back of the house and crouched down behind the shed. When they could finally breathe again Zoey turned around and looked at Duece. He had a big shiner on his eye. Zoey was afraid to mention it to him but his eye was hurting and he touched it with his hand. There was a big bump. This was not good. What in the world was he going to tell his mother. He went to bed as normal as could be and when his mother woke him up for school in the morning he'd have a black eye and a limp. All he could do was sigh and shake his head. He was really in trouble now. They waited for what seemed like a very long time. Zoey was getting tired. This late night surveillance was harder than what she thought. They went to the edge of the house and looked around. They didn't see anything. Zoey told Duece she thought the coast was clear and they should go home.

The night was over

By the time Duece dropped Zoey off at her house and cut through her back yard to his house it was 3 a.m. He had left the door unlocked so he quietly went in through the side door and went up to his room. He didn't even look in the mirror. He was too tired and his leg hurt too bad. He'd deal with all this tomorrow. He needed to get some rest. Zoey was out like a light the minute her head hit the pillow. Tomorrow was a new day and she'd have a new plan. It might not involve Duece because he was going to have a lot of explaining to do.
