"WHAT POPPY??" I yelled, already knowing her question:What if we get caught?! And she asked it. I had no clue what to say.

"We- I honestly don't know..." I replied.

"WHAT DO YOU MEAN??!!" She screamed at me.

"I DON'T KNOW!" I screamed back.

"WAIT! I'LL DISTRACT THEM AND YOU CALL BEN TO MAKE HIM HELP US OK? OK?????!!!!!!" She again yelled to me.

"OK!" I replied,dashing behind a rock and then running into the Fruity Tuity Smoothie Bar. I hid behind the counter and called Ben. It took about seven minutes until he finally answered. I wondered how Poppy was doing.

"OK, Ben, don't freak out but... I NEED you to get your parents and meet me at the smoothie bar OK?"

"But it's stormy they aren't-"

"JUST MEET ME THERE OK?!" Ben's parents would help us. His dad was a police officer. And his mom was a grocery market worker. They were always really nice, at least to me. Never found out why though...

Only three minutes later, Ben and his parents arrived. But they were too late. I saw a terrified Poppy, stuck in the boathouse. And the men had all of the oil, loaded onto their boat.

Ben's dad pulled out his police badge, "Stop, you sirs are under arrest!"
