Topic: Alberta Alibi

Today I started a book called Alberta Alibi. It's about a 13-year-old girl goes to visit her father in Alberta she hasn't seen her dad in 2 years. Shelia and her mother used to live there but her parents divorced 5 years ago and Shelia went to lice with her mother in victoria. Shelia was nervous about going to see her father because they never talked he phoned her 4 times in the last 2 years two times for birthday other 2 for Christmas. Shelia wasn't sure if her father even wanted her to come down to visit him but she didn't have a choice because her mother had to leave for a business trip. It was a very long drive and Shelia got very board. Once they got to the town she remembered the town and remembered how to get to her father's ranch they started heading towards his farm. Once they got to the ranch she remembers the Triple W sign In the front of the driveway she was happy to see it and see the old white house they used to live in. They knocked on the door no one was home so they waited an hour later her father came down the driveway in the old blue pickup truck and ran up and gave her a big hug he said he got lost in time and forgot what day it was.

Re: Alberta Alibi

Shelia and her father had supper together when there hired hand came to there house saying the watchman at the development got shot and 1 hour later the police showed up at her house. Shelia didn't know what to think she knew that her father really did not want the development being put in so she thought maybe it was her dad because the police where at there house but then she knew it could not have been because her father wasn't a killer. The police went into her father's office where the emails and gun cabinet was. The police left the house with her fathers gun and the computer Shelia was very scared and confused.

Re: Alberta Alibi

All the kids and sheila's father went on a long ride around there farm. While they were on the ride Chris got a phone call from the police to go back to the house when Chris got back the police were waiting there with a search warrant. The police searched the house and took Chris's computer all his guns some paperwork and files. The kids were very confused they didn't know if Chris was the one who shot the watchman. The next day the kids went and talked to Ben Chriss hired hand Shelia hasn't seen him in 5 years once they got to his house she remember ben's brown cowboy hat and remember how nice Ben was to her. Ben told Shelia and the other kids that last night one of the buildings at the development had got burned down by somebody and the police were looking for suspects.

Re: Alberta Alibi

Katie Shelia Rusty Huntley all went out riding and swimming. After they finished swimming they went and rode up to the glenmar development. They saw the building that got burnt and investigators searching the crime scene for clues. They sat on top of the hill looking at the site for an hour then decided to go. Once they got back to the farm the boys stayed in the barn the girls went to the house when they got inside someone was in the house that they had never seen before. Shelia demanded who are you and what are you doing here she said im adele James Chris's girlfriend. Shelia was heartbroken cause she really hoped someday her parents would get back together and they would live on the ranch again. Adele was Huntley mother also Adele was very nice but Shelia still didn't like her. When Chris got home he kissed her this made Shelia want to cry. She phoned her mom that night and explained that dad had a new girlfriend and that the police searched the house and took lots of stuff and that her dad might go to jail that someone got shot and they were building and glenmar development is buiding golf coarse beside there farm.

They headed for the barn they started doing to horses saddles up when they heard crunching on the driveway they went to the barn door and seen a white SUV coming up the driveway. At first, they thought it was Adele vehicle but then they saw RCMP on the side and sirons Shelia's heart sank caue se she knew the cops wouldn't drive 45 mins for a cup of coffee. It was the same to officers as the first time they got out and headed straight for the house Chris yelled at them from the barn how can i help you? They turned fast and headed straight for Chriss they had there hand hovering there guns the whole way. They told Chriss that they had some questioning for him to do and he said ok what are they and they said youll have to come for a ride and answer them in town.

Re: Alberta Alibi

Adele is still at the ranch looking after the kids 4 days later. One day the kids all went riding up to Mr. browns van Once the got there he wasn't there but he saw them and called for them he was down at the river collecting water. He asked the kids to haul the water back up to his van for him. The kids did that and when they finished hauling the water he had tea and cookies set out for them. They talked and ate the cookies then Shelia pulled out her notebook and started asking more questions about the night of the fire and shooting to see what he saw. He expladed to them everything he saw and Shelia wrote it all down in her notebook. They finished asking their questions and Headed back to the farm when they got back glenmar development was at Chris's house telling Adele how they have the right to buy all triple w ranch land because of what happened and how they're starting to put in a new road tomorrow for the golf course.

Re: Alberta Alibi

Joe came back from Calgary joe is bens son. Joe worked for the ranch ever since Shelia could remember Shelia hadn't seen joe in 10 years. Once joe got back the first thing they did is go to visit shelia he looked the exact same to Shelia and she recognized him right away. Shelia gave him a hug and they ate lunch together and talked for a while. Shelia explained everything that happened joe acted very strangely and Shelia knew something was wrong. Shelia started asking some questions and as soon as she did that joe said he better get going he had lots of work to do this was very strange to Shelia. Shelia went to joes house the next day and they talked for a while Shelia thought of a plan the night before. she told that Adele was gonna bail out her dad and that ben is gonna b watching the development to see if the shooter would come back none of this was true. Adele went to town and had a lot of paperwork to do and she would be in Chriss office all might long doing that and Shelia told joe that so he wouldn't come back to the house to see Chriss.

Re: Alberta Alibi

Mr Brown and all 4 kids sat at the van that night waiting for the shooter to come back. all 4 boys and the dog fell asleep. but the girls stood there awake waiting they heard and engine start-up and before they knew it headlights were coming straight for them the dog woke up and started barking that woke everyone up. They all said to get under the van and hide. the headlight turned and went to the cliff to watch the development. The dog ran after the truck Wendell rusty and Huntley all went after the dog and the shooters seen them and went after them. There was 3 people in the truck they started talking and said that if he doesn't get his dog to be quiet and stay still hell shoot it. And then he made all 3 boys get in the back of the truck and go down with them to the development. Mr Brown tried and faught to only take him cause he didn't want them to hurt the boys. But they said no so they can go call cops and get us in trouble.

Re: Alberta Alibi

The shooter was the owner of glenmar devolpment. They owners took the 3 boys in the back of there truck down to the devolpment. Once they got to the devolpment they put the boys in an office and locked the door. They realized that hauntley was adeles son and said that adele would pay good money to get him back. The owners left and didint come back for 7 hours the owners never seen the girls cause they hide under the van when the girls seen they left they rushed down there and got the door open and broke the boys out. They all ran for the van and headed to chriss house he droped off the kids and phoned the cops and when the owners came the cops would be there to get them and set chriss free.
