Case 11 - Graduation

This was it. The school year was over, and Sheryl, Samantha, and I were graduating from middle school. The graduation ceremony was over, and the After-School Detectives gathered in the clubroom.

"I'm going to miss you guys!" Katie said with tears in her eyes as she gave Sheryl a hug.

"Don't cry, Katie, we live in the same area, so we can get together all the time," Sheryl replied. Even as she said that though, her voice cracked a bit and she had tears in her eyes as well. "Promise you'll keep the club going?"

Katie gave Sheryl a thumbs up, "Of course!"

Sheryl smiled and gave Katie a thumbs up as well.

"Hello there, After-School Detectives," said a voice by the doorway.

I turned to see Marlowe, our 'rival detective', leaning against the door frame.

"So, that was a fun year," he said, "Want to go for another round when we start high school?"

Samantha grinned at the thought, "Oh, that would be fun!"

I turned to Sheryl and asked her, "So, what do you think? Want to start another detective club at high school?"

Sheryl grinned and gave us all her thumbs up, "Of course! After all, we're the After-School Detectives!"
