The gang is all excited to go exploring the town of Frozen Cave and the mysteries it's trying to hide
The adventure begins
The Snow Creature
Every winter Rocky Shores, elementary science teacher; Ms. Bluestone, picks a few students from her class. And invites them to join her on a fun winter-land adventure
This year Ms. Bluestone, invited Cookie and her friends
“Tommy, when you get bored of trying to drown Sammy.
Come and see me, and I’ll teach you how to use the spare rod
“That you’ve been pestering me about”
Ms. Bluestone cried out smiling
from the side of the Big Gulper ship’s rail
“Oh cool!” Tommy Cub happily answered back
before he began to swim back towards the ship. Once aboard Ms. Bluestone, helped Tommy out of his wet suit then asked him
“Do you know what this is?”
“A large pole to help scoop Sammy, up from the ocean floor.
After his floaties deflate.” Tommy shrugged
“Your humor is the only thing that seems to have deflated, Thomas.”
Ms. Bluestone smirked
“Now pay attention, first, you wrap your paw around the middle of the spare then gently pull it back.
And throw it as far as you can
“Okay, now give it a try.” She added.
Tommy took a deep breath before he pulled his arm back and threw the spare with all his strength
“Ouch!” Tommy, you dork, you just spared my paw!”
Both Tommy and Ms. Bluestone ran over towards the sail rail and looked over it.
And noticed that Sammy was holding the spare that Tommy just threw with a big smile on his face
“I’m the dork?” Dude, that wasn’t funny!”
What if I did really hit you with the stupid thing?”
Tommy growled at him
we all know that there’s a better chance of your target hitting you,
then you hitting it.” Daisy Penguin smirked
“Okay, okay, settle down.
Why don’t we meet in the lunchroom in a few minutes?”
and I’ll fill you in on the super adventure. We’re about to go on.”
Ms. Bluestone told them
A few minutes later they were all gathered down inside the lunch room munching on some pizza nuggets
“Okay, first, I’d like to thank you kids, for joining me on this trip.” Ms. Bluestone began
“Anytime Ms. Bluestone,
we were happy that you asked us to come. So, what’s this adventure that you’ve planned for us?”
Cookie asked smiling
“Well, it’s more like a mystery that needs to be solved then adventure.” Ms. Bluestone answered her back
Ms. Bluestone laughed at their confusion then continued
“I’d like for you kids,
to help me solve the mystery of the snow creature.”
“The what creature?”
that sounds more like a made-up story than anything else.” Tommy frowned
“Maybe to us, Tommy, but to professors of folk tales and legends this creature is very much real.
Not only do they believe this creature does really exist
“But it guards a secret cave full of treasure.”
Ms. Bluestone explained
“Oh wow, does this mean we can keep the treasure if we do find this creature and his cave?”
Both Tommy and Sammy Turtle asked at the same time
“Now, now, boys, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Let’s see if this creature does really exist first!” Ms. Bluestone laughed
“I didn’t think that a scientist like yourself would be interested in proving or disproving.
Like Tommy, said a probably made-up story as this one.”
Vicky Dragonfly told her
“Normally I wouldn’t, but after doing some research on the subject.
It’d be such a wonderful discovery if we could actually- find some kind- of real proof
“That this creature is more than a made-up story.”
Ms. Bluestone answered her
“Now, tomorrow we’ll be taking a small plane.” She added
“Plane?” why can’t we just take the boat?” Sammy asked frowning
“Because the town of Frozen Cave, is a real small town.
That the only way we can get there is by plane or car
“But don’t worry Sammy,
you’ll be having so much fun on this adventure
That you won’t even miss this old boat.” Ms. Bluestone smiled
Arriving at Frozen Cave
The next morning the gang were walking around inside the Frozen Cave airport
“Okay, kids, why don’t you go get our bags while I find Mr. Snake.
He’s going to be our guide,
then afterwards we’ll grab something to eat.”
Ms. Bluestone told them
Then after picking up their bags they headed out to a local restaurant
“So, Mr. Snakes, have you ever seen the snow creature?”
Cookie asked him as they waited for their food to arrive
“Sadly no, I’ve only heard rumors about its existence.”
He answered her
“What kind of rumors?” Tommy asked him
“Well, a couple weeks ago
a couple of photographers came into our town.
In hopes they would capture some pictures of this creature.”
Mr. Snake began
“And?” Tommy frowned after a few seconds of silence
“And, they were never heard from again.
It’s like they simply vanished into thin air.” Mr. Snake shrugged
“Oh, that’s impossible.
They probably just gave up and left town.” Ms. Bluestone snorted
“I certainly hope that you’re right.” Mr. Snake smirked
The snow creature?
A few hours later they were heading out towards their cabin
“How much farther is it.
I can’t feel my toes anymore I’m pretty -sure they froze off
“It must be two below out zero here.” Tommy whined
“You actually have to put the zero in front of the number first.”
Daisy corrected him
“Wow, thank you so much, for that weather correction.
What would I ever do without your help.” Tommy smirked
“Okay kids, settle down, I know that it’s cold out here.
But we should be reaching our cabins pretty- soon
I can taste the hot chocolate as we speak.”
Ms. Bluestone told them
Later that night Ms. Bluestone was in the kitchen making their hot chocolate.
While the gang was inside the living room playing a game of clue
“It was the maid in the bedroom with the hammer!” Sammy cried out
“Sorry, dude, but you’re so wrong.” Tommy laughed
“Hey, did you guys, just hear that?” Daisy interrupted
“Listen, it sounded like it came from outside.” She added
“Umm, maybe, we should tell Ms. Bluestone, to take a look.”
We can easily do it and be back inside before she notices that we were gone.”
They were just about to reach the back of the cabin
When they had to jump back as Mr. Snakes, suddenly speeded off in front of them riding off on their snow mobile
“Hey!” where are you going?”
You just can’t leave us out in the middle of nowhere.
Without any transportation!”
Tommy yelled out before he and the others began chasing after him
They kept chasing the snow mobile until they couldn’t any more
“Oh great, now what are we going to do now?”
There’s no way we can catch up.” Daisy whined
“Umm, I think we’ve a bigger problem.” Sammy added
“Oh really, Sammy, like what?”
What can be more important than to be stuck in the middle of nowhere.” Tommy frowned
“Well, if you can tell us how we can get back to the cabin.
That’s be great.” Sammy smirked
“Don’t worry Sammy, we’ll just retrace our paw prints.
They should help us get back.” Cookie shrugged
Are we lost
They didn’t get very far since it started to snow again covering up their tracks
“I hate to say it,
but this isn’t working we’re just walking around in a big circle.”
“Yah, I hate to agree with him.
But I’ve a funny feeling that instead of getting closer, we’re walked further away from the cabin.”
“I was thinking the same thing too. Maybe we should take shelter inside that cave we just passed
“Then take it from there.” Cookie agreed
A few minutes later while inside the cave Cookie was about to tell the gang something.
When a flood light suddenly blinded them
It was Ms. Bluestone
“Oh, thank heavens!”
I’ve been so scared looking for you kids, all over the place.
What in the world are you doing out here.” She cried out
“We heard a strange noise coming from outside and want to investigate.
It was Mr. Snakes, he stole our snow mobile and took off
“We tried chasing him but couldn’t keep up.
Then we got lost trying to find our way back to the cabin.”
“What?” I can’t believe he’d do something as cruel as that
“Just wait until we get back into town
I’m going to make sure he’s punished for his actions.”
Ms. Bluestone angrily answered
“That’s if we get back.” Tommy sighed
“Oh, that shouldn’t be any problem you kids,
didn’t wander off that far. Just about a mile or so
“As soon as we get back to the cabin.
I’ll radio us in and hopefully we’ll be back in town by tomorrow afternoon.”
Ms. Bluestone smiled
A few days later they were back onboard the Big Gulpher
I never thought I’d be so happy to be back on this old rust bucket.
I don’t want to see snow for a very long, long time!” Tommy joked
“Yah, but I feel bad that we didn’t.” Vicky began
“Hey, kids, can you please come down the lunch room.
I’ve some exciting news to share with you.” Ms. Bluestone’s voice interrupted from below deck
They all gathered inside the lunch room and asked
What’s the excited news?
“Well, I’m sure that you’re all glad to be back.
As Tommy, so nicely put it the old rust bucket!”
“But before we reach back to shore.
I’d like to thank you kids, again.” Ms. Bluestone smiled
“It was fun.
But it’s a shame that we couldn’t help you prove that the snow creature existed or not.” Vicky answered
“It wasn’t. anyway,
I just wanted you kids, to know that I just got off the phone with the police
“A little while ago to inform me that they found Mr. Snakes,
hiding inside one of the caves.
Not so far from where we were staying.” Ms. Bluestone began
“According to the police he has been robbing local banks then hiding the money in different caves.”
“How awful, I can’t believe that he’d do such awful and mean things like that.
He seemed so nice when we meet him.” Cookie said
“Cookie, sometimes you really can’t judge by what they do or say.
But don’t worry sooner or later criminals like Mr. Snakes,
“Always get caught no matter how many time they gotten away with it before.” Ms. Bluestone answered her
“So, the whole thing was just a scam?” There was never anything such thing as a snow creature?” Sammy asked
“Sadly, we’ll are never going to truly know.
The officer, who I spoke to has heard rumors about the snow creature, when he was younger
But doesn’t believe it really exist
“He believes that Mr. Snakes, made this whole thing up as alibi.
That he was using us so we’d be his cover story. If asked.”
Ms. Bluestone answered
“But the weird part is that the weather hasn’t been so cold.
The officer also told me that when they found him, he was frozen solid
“And had the strangest look on his face.
Like he was scared to death and was about to scream or close to it.”
“Oh wow, maybe the legend of the snow creature does exist!” Vicky laughed
“Maybe, just like some legends weren’t made to be known.
I guess this is one of those that’s best left unknown.
Now who wants to help me make my world- famous brownies?”
Ms. Bluestone answered her also laughing
