"Molly and Milly Take A Vacation" The girls are grounded

Dad's waiting for an explanation. Molly doesn't know where to start and Milly's hiding behind Molly hoping that Dad doesn't see her. They are in trouble but lately it seems like trouble is their middle name.

The explanation

Molly started at the beginning and told Dad exactly what happened. She had gone undercover to help with the investigation. Her plans fell through and she ended up being held captive. In Milly's defense Molly told Dad that Milly had put two and two together and walked to the beach house to save her. Dad waited for Molly to finish telling her story. He was very quiet, almost too quiet. He started pacing back and forth and finally he looked Molly and Milly in the eye, and said they were grounded for the rest of the trip. They wouldn't be going to the volleyball court, ocean, boardwalk, beach or anywhere else till they left for home. Milly didn't want to go out in the heat anyway but Molly was very upset. She tried to talk to Dad but he wouldn't listen.

Grounded on a sunny day

Molly sat in the chair closest to the big picture window and looked out on the beach. All she wanted to know was how she was supposed to solve a crime from the inside of a beach house. There were dangerous men roaming around on the beach and Molly wasn't allowed to leave the house. Milly didn't care because she didn't like the heat but Molly could map out a plan and try to salvage her undercover operation. Dad was watching both of them like a hawk. There was no way they'd get passed him to go outside.

A phone call

Dad got a call from the police telling him they had some new information. Dad agreed to meet with the captain later in the day. Molly wanted to go but Dad wouldn't let her so she was in the house for the duration of the trip. Milly was marking off the calendar and waiting for the day they could wave bye to this place.

The meeting

Dad left before dinner to meet with the captain. He had his briefcase with him which meant he was taking his laptop. He was probably afraid Molly would start snooping around. He was absolutely right because that's exactly what she would do. At the police station Dad learned more about the case. The police had matched finger prints from a jewelry heist out of Phoenix to the victim. The captain had gone to talk to the roommates but they weren't talking. They said they didn't know anything. The captain wanted Dad to get to the bottom of it. He said he'd do the best he could.

Putting the clues together

By the time Dad left the police station it was dark. The clues were adding up and Dad was pretty sure he knew what happened. This case should be solved shortly which was a really good thing because they were supposed to leave for home on Saturday. That gave Dad exactly three days to complete this assignment. He was going to be short handed because Molly and Milly were grounded. He would have to do all the work by himself.

I hope Dad himself is not in danger but Molly and Milly are there to bail him out if it comes to that! Being grounded should not prevent them from saving his life. Every rule has an exception!

Thanks Nancy, vacation and work go hand in hand too, it then becomes a paid vacation - siva

Siva, thanks for the wonderful comment and the smile this morning. You are the very best. I think a paid vacation sounds better than no vacation. Smiles to you!

I felt bad that Molly and Milly were grounded. I wonder how well Dad is going to do on this case without his little helpers! Great job, Nancy!!!
