The Adventures of Megan Martin - official website
The second book in the Megan Martin series takes Megan, her best friend May, and now the nosy neighbor girl, Brianna, on adventures through a haunted house.
Megan and May return home to the city at the end of summer vacation with a great big secret! But Brianna the nosy neighbor girl just will not leave them alone. She has a new video camera and knows how to use it. She also likes to let herself into Megan’s house without knocking!
There’s a really spooky old mansion on the edge of the city that dates back to 1947. An entire family died there under mysterious circumstances and no one has been able to live in the mansion since that time. The second owners of the house ran screaming for their lives in the middle of the night never to return. Now Megan and May decide they want to know what happened there one stormy night. It looks like a big old empty house but unseen eyes watch from the darkness and the girls are not alone.
We call this our Halloween story because of the haunted mansion but it actually happens before Halloween.
"What happened?" Brianna asked in a weak voice as she regained consciousness.
May was standing there beside the bed with the crown device in her hand and before she could hide it Brianna spotted it. "Ok, you caught us, we are super heroes involved in a lot of top secret stuff that no one else is suppose to know about."
"I knew it!" Brianna said remembering all the strange things she had overheard but had not been able to make any sense out of.
Megan had to cover her mouth to keep from laughing but she had to admit it was a better answer than what she was about to fabricate.
"Let's question her and see how much she knows." Megan nodded her head as she spoke. Brianna was nodding her head in agreement with Megan until she added, "Then we will erase her memory!"
"I don't know anything I swear I don't." Brianna insisted.
"I don't believe you!" May said as she reached a hand toward Megan, "Give me the white jewel."
Megan handed the jewel to her friend who promptly exchanged it with the blue transport jewel.
"Now we will find out what you really know, I'll pump your brain for information until you scream if you are keeping any secrets from us, I will find out!"
"Not on my bed you aren't" Megan ordered as May turned to see what she was talking about. "Last time you did that to someone it made an awful mess, we never did get the stains out of the bed spread."
Brianna shook her head back and forth in desperation wondering what in the world May and Megan had in mind for her. Quickly she tried to think of anything that might spare her the full wrath of the worst thing she might imagine. "Look I will join you, I can be helpful I can help," Brianna looked back and forth between the two desperate to find some glimmer of hope. "Really, I won't tell, I promise, I will even sign a contract in my own blood if I have to."
Megan bit her lower lip on that one and May turned completely around trying to prevent Brianna from seeing she was about to burst out laughing.
"May do you have the contracts we use for people to sign in blood?" Megan asked.
May just shook her head still trying to keep from laughing, "No, but I will go see if I can find one." May left the room went into the bathroom and closed the door. She couldn't hold it in any longer and laughed so hard as quietly as she could that tears were rolling down her cheeks.
