Faith remembers when Amanda’s things ended up in Play It Again Sam’s after she disappeared. That is, after all, how we got our hands on Amanda’s box full of clues. And this was very curious and alarming to find your missing friends possessions being sold in a second hand shop, how could this be? AllieK thinks that Play It Again Sam’s might be filled with the belongings of people who have needed to flee or are being hunted by… well, I guess we still have no idea. But queenchuki thinks that it has something to do with the list of people on Thornhill’s computer, remember when we broke into his office?
But what a weird thought! Remember the mirror? What if everything in that store has a similar reason for being there? What a creepy thought!
So, we decided to take Rye2411’s idea and track down the address on the boxes. This was much easier than we thought it would be with a little help from Cornelia. Nia took a picture through the locked back door of Play It Again Sam’s and we uploaded it onto Cornelia’s computer. She then enhanced and refined the picture until it was big enough to see the small, upside down handwriting on the side. We felt like members of a high tech forensics team on some high-energy television show… Or, maybe that was just me.
Anyway the address was not too far out of town, so we took a long bike ride out there. We arrived to find the house sitting at the end of a dirt road, surrounded by bulldozers. As we hopped off our bikes we watched, from a distance, a giant wrecking ball crank back and swing into the side of the house.
