The team has been waiting patiently for the Park Rangers to call with news. Rusty gave Clarissa and Katie a ride back to the pet store. The temperatures were too cold for them to stay in the park. Dad, Molly, Milly, Robert and Rusty stayed home and shared pizza and popcorn and watched movies. By midnight there was no news and they all retired for the night.

Sleeping late after the movie marathon

Molly woke up late and crawled out of bed to the sound of the phone ringing. She had no idea what time it was but maybe the Rangers were calling with news. When Molly walked into the kitchen she could here mom on the phone. She was talking to one of her friends. Milly was watching television and there was no sign of Rusty. He must still be sleeping. They were up late watching scary movies. After that last movie Molly had to sleep with the covers over her head. She was as brave as anyone but some of those movies were a bit much for her. It was almost Halloween so they played a lot of the really scary movies. Molly looked for Robert but he must have gone home early. He'd fallen asleep on the couch and Dad had said to let him sleep. Robert had been working hard with the team and deserved his rest.

One by one the team gathered at the house.

Slowly but surely the team members showed up at Dad's house. They were wondering if there was any news. The only members missing were Clarissa and Katie. They were happy to be back at the pet store not to even mention they didn't want to go out in the cold. There were a few snowflakes falling and for that to happen it had to be pretty cold. Miss Darcy was perched on the living room window. She was waiting for news before she flew home. Spike was sitting on the fireplace enjoying the warmth of the logs. It was cold in the woods and spending some time inside was very nice. Rusty was talking quietly to Spike so he wouldn't bother Dad. Dad was reading the paper with the phone by his side. He was wearing his warm fuzzy slippers. Milly liked laying on Dad's feet when he had his slippers on. Robert, Sally, Sammy and Molly were in the family room.

The call the team had been waiting for all day long

The phone call the team was waiting for came in about half past three. The Park Rangers told Dad that the guy they were holding gave them the name of his buddy. They agreed to show him a little leniency if he would turn over the name, so he did cooperate. Dad quietly hung up the phone and announced that the case was officially over. Milly ran downstairs to the family room to let Robert, Molly, Sammy and Sally hear the good news. Everyone was happy. Milly was thankful she didn't have to go back outside in the cold. Dad told everybody that they had done a wonderful job. Rusty called the girls at the pet store and they were as happy as they could be. It was too cold to be wandering around in the woods looking for the bad guys. Everybody was hoping it would be a quiet winter.

A nice end to a long case

Dad decided that everyone deserved a treat for giving their all to the case. Mom made a nice dinner for everyone. Dad delivered food to the pet store for the girls. They were so happy. The rest of the team ate at the house. When the meal was over everyone said their goodbyes and left for home. It was getting very cold and the snow was covering the ground. Molly, Milly and Rusty waved goodbye to the team as they all went their separate ways. Little did they all know that a new case would present itself in the blink of an eye.

The end...

I liked the closing sentence that gives hope as every end is also a new beginning, like we hope the present will be a harbinger for better times to come.

I believe we will know who others really are when we leave our present abode and that includes other species, trees, plants etc that give us wholesome company.

It was indeed an uplifting story where you made everyone come to life, those we hardly take a second look, thanks Nancy - siva

Stella, thank you so very much for the wonderful comment. I love this team. I'm always a little sad when a story ends but another one is right around the corner. This particular story was so much fun to write because it was centered around the park in the fall. I loved sharing all the beautiful pictures. Blessings to you today and always.
