The Baby Pink Griffin
Mary Mancy, a short brown haired teenager, went window shopping and saw an extravagant ornamental egg. So she went inside and bought the ornamental egg. All of a sudden it hatched, and there was a baby pink griffin. Janelle, a little girl, was the one who put the griffin in that egg because she knew Mary would buy it. The griffin will bring her up to date on all the things that have happened so she can plan things to help them. Astonished, Mary took the baby griffin home at once and heard her father say that he had a case on the explosive oranges but he didn’t know that was the first part of the whole mystery of the deadly fruit. Mr Mancy asked if Mary would also like to help. Mary accepted and he told her that someone had delivered explosive Hamlin oranges to the space air craft which was to be launched on Tuesday at N.A.S.A.
After Mary told her dad about the baby griffin. The griffin, all of a sudden started to say, “Bubble Gum, me Bubble Gum.”
Hannah their housekeeper came down with gum in her pocket because she always does as a treat for good children and asked, “Did anyone say Bubble Gum?” She put her hand into her pocket but when she pulled the gum out, the griffin ran up and snatched the gum off of her. At the same time the housekeeper screeched and ran to the kitchen.
Mary said the thought aloud, “I think this griffin should be called Bubble Gum.”
Mr Mancy told Mary to pack and get ready for the trip to Melbourne airport.
Mary wondered about Bubble Gum and asked, “What about Bubble Gum because she is a griffin?’
“We’ll have to ask about that, but I think she would pass as a remote controlled toy.”
They got to the Billingtons mansion in Melbourne, it looked magnificent. Bessie and Georgina are Mary’s best friends and Trevor is her boyfriend, they were also there.
“Come on let’s go inside. “Bessie said eagerly, wanting to see the interior design of the house.
They finished unpacking and Mary said, “Let’s go and see the Briefson’s house and visit Trevor.” Trevor’s mother Mrs Briefson asked if they would like to go and see the Webster house because it is a nice house for sale. They all definitely agreed. Mr Scarrlet the real estate agent didn’t want to give up the key but finally in the end he did.
The house was beautiful inside as the outside. Next to the house looked like a jungle. So the girls went to explore.
It was muddy on the ground so they found a fence and started to follow it. Half way round Bubble Gum who had followed started to hiss. When Mary turned around, a big black panther pounced on her, she tumbled to the ground. Bubble Gum however swallowed her gum and started to fly and grow a pointy beak. She bit the tip of the black panther’s tail and the panther jumped back over the fence to its cage.
“H-how did you do that?” Mary said speechlessly.
“Me swallow gum. That’s how Mary!” Exclaimed Bubble Gum proudly. Mary and her friends went back home to tell her father and Hannah the story of Bubble Gum’s heroics.
‘I know someone who is an animal safety officer and would like to help. If you want, you could go with him and have a look at the place?” Her dad said.
The next day Mary and the officer went to visit the property and knocked on the door.
The owner Mr Fortin came and said, “Hello, what are you doing here?”
“I am the animal officer and here to have another look to see if the panther is being well taken care of.” He answered.
“Fine!” Fortin said with a deep sigh.
After they checked the house and saw all the things to take care of the panther they went to the cellar room. Mary and Bubble Gum saw many doors but couldn’t get any closer because they had to go back home.
“Well, it looks fine to me. Thank you for your co-operation. Bye.” The officer said.
Mary went home and told the others, “I saw many suspicious doors in the mansion but I couldn’t get any closer to them and Mr Fortin looked very suspicious because he didn’t want us near the doors, but we didn’t get many clues.”
“It’s all right as long as you’re not hurt. That’s all that matters.” Her dad said thankfully.
Mary went to the Briefsons and asked if they could bring David and Josh which are Bessie’s and Georgina’s boyfriends to see the Webster house. Apparently they were already there. Mary asked them and they accepted so they started their way to the house. When they got there, water was leaking from under the door.
“Mary where’s the key?” Trevor shouted.
“Here it is. Hurry please!” Mary rushed vigorously giving Trevor the key. Trevor opened the door and water burst out, soaking them all.
Josh ran inside and said “We need to turn off all the taps in the house!” They turned off the taps but water was still coming from one place, the laundry room. Bubble Gum was the first there. mary and the others came up. In a flash the water stopped running and pouring out.
“Let’s grab mops and towels and get to work!” David blurted out with enthusiasm because he went to a cleaning camp not so long ago. In the cleaning camp he had to clean everything. They all did as much as they could and left completely tuckered out.
Mary went to look for Hamlin oranges and her second try brought luck because the owner said, “One of my workers took some oranges and left. His name is Roro.” Mary thanked the owner and left. At the Billingtons mansion Bessie heard explosive like noises in a room that was locked. Immediately she asked Mr Billington who was in that room. He said his housekeeper and the gardener sleep there. Bessie told Mr Billington about the noises and he said, “If you are really sure they are making bombs, call the police.” So timid Bessie called the police and they came. When Mary was back Georgina told her how Bessie had heard the Billingtons housekeeper making bombs and calling the police.
“Where are they? Are they part of the mystery?” Mary asked Georgina.
Georgina answered and said, “They are in jail, but they won’t spill the beans.” Then sighed deeply.
“Why not tomorrow morning we go back to the Webster house and have a look at the mansion.” Mary pleaded.
Next morning Mary, Bessie and Georgina took the key to the lovely luxurious house. Bessie secretly bought meat with a sleeping pill in it.
Since Bessie was afraid she held the meat all the way there.A funny thing was that Trevor, Josh and David were there.
“Hey, girls. What are you doin…?” Trevor’s voice was muffled by the sound of a growl of the black panther.
“Ahh!” Bessie ran away and threw the meat at the black panther which landed right in front of it. The panther sniffed it and gobbled it up in one big bite. A few minutes later, the black panther spun round dizzily and fell to the ground with a big thump.
“Hey what’s going on here? Why is the black panther on the ground! What happened?” said Longfoot the animal trainer, who heard the big thump and came out to investigate.
Poor timid Bessie came out of her hiding place and said, “Th-the bl-black p-panther c-came an-and a-a-ttacked u-us and I-I thr-threw me-meat w-with a-a sl-sleeping p-p-pill in it.”
“I’ll go, get a truck and load the naughty thing in, then I’ll be outa your hair.” The strange animal trainer said as he walked away.
Half an hour later he came back in his truck. While they were waiting, Mary wanted to go into the mansion but Trevor said that he will not let her go alone. So Trevor decided to go with her. So they devised a plan to climb to the top of the truck and ride all the way there. Bubble Gum was to fly up and watch, if there was any trouble she was to fly back, tell the others and get help. When the boys helped Longfoot load the panther into the truck, Mary called Trevor. Trevor went to her and hid next to the truck. Longfoot moved into his seat of the truck and the young couple leaped on like a pair of gerbils. Bessie, Georgina, David and Josh wished them the best of luck. Mary and Trevor dared not to move even an inch.
Out of the blue scratching and growling could be heard loudly from underneath Mary and Trevor. Trevor thought it was the smell of them that made the old fellow hold such commotion and hullabaloo. But the actual reason was Mary’s thought of the liquorice coloured panther waking all of a sudden from eating meat to being in a truck. While Longfoot was unloading the voraciously screeching panther, the two hiding on top of the truck slide down and headed towards the open door that lead to the basement where the strange doors were. One by one the doors were opened, the first one had a pool of hot, steaming, boiling water.
The second one was a room full of wires. Mary suggested that Trevor should damage the control room of the evil master who created it. Just in case it was to activate any exploding oranges. After he had destroyed it, he thought it would be time to go back because they have done what they need. Roro was waiting for them. He was a big, husky, giant who grasped the two trembling teens in one hand and pushed them into the room full of boiling water. Bubble Gum who had been watching every single detail went back to get the help of her friends and the police. Georgina who had the best eyesight, out of the four who were sitting there, spotted Bubble Gum flapping her wings towards her so she ran to get the police. Bessie however was so terrified that she hugged David, Josh and Bubble Gum, all at once!
Next thing Bessie noticed were police cars zooming by without sirens, probably not to give themselves away, that they were coming.
The bad guys of course got caught and the prisoners of the house set free. Tuesday morning everyone watched the take-off at N.A.S.A. Mary thought it was the end of her mystery, it was, but it was only the beginning for the full mystery. One of the volunteers called Mary to come with him and watch the rocket when it goes through the sonic boom stage, from the tower with the other staff.
