Miss Willa Mae was way too strict. She said they could drape sheets off the top bunk to make their fort, but they couldnâ€™t hang a lantern in there because itâ€™d burn the place down. Without a lantern, how can they see all their important plans without taking the sheets down? And if they take the sheets down, how can you still call it a fort? The goblin could just saunter in!
Theyâ€™d be sorry when that little goblin attacked the orphanage and they didnâ€™t have a well-lit fort to hole up in. Sometimes, Jack felt like him and Drew and Ty were the only ones who gave a darn about this town.
Jack pulled out his map, squinted at it in the darkness, and marked an X next to what he thought was the orphanage. â€œOkay, Becky Riggs says the goblin was here yesterday, stealing cookies â€¦ but thatâ€™s nowhere near where we usually see him. You think heâ€™s out here â€˜cause heâ€™s looking for us now?â€
Ty shrugged, scratching Mittens the jackalope behind his little antlers. â€œMaybe heâ€™s looking for cookies? If I was a goblin, Iâ€™d want some. Probably hard to find, since Miss Willa Mae donâ€™t cook for goblins.â€
â€œTheyâ€™re oatmeal cookies!â€ said Drew. â€œGoblins donâ€™t like oatmeal. That is a science fact. It gets stuck in all their goblin teeth. â€˜Sides, every other time we seen him, heâ€™s gone for hard candy.â€
â€œWell, heâ€™s got to have some reason to want them,â€ said Jack. â€œMaybe heâ€™s gonna put a spell on â€˜em or something, like, the kind of thing where they put out sweets for a kid and you eat â€˜em and you fall asleep and wake up locked in a cage with a witch who wants to eat you?â€ He put a hand on his chin. â€œI bet if we knew he was coming back here, we could lay a trap for him â€¦ put a net on the ground, put the sweets in the middle, and when someone picks â€˜em up, BAM! Caught â€˜im!â€
â€œIf we did that weâ€™d probably just catch Becky Riggs,â€ said Drew. Jack was pretty sure he was rolling his eyes but couldnâ€™t quite make it out. â€œAnd who needs a net?â€ he added, drawing his slingshot with a flourish. â€œI tell you, if I get a good shot at him â€¦ Whack! Iâ€™ll knock that little booger clean out!â€
Ty and Jack stared off into space for a bit, not really sure why Drew thought that would work but not wanting to question him. Then Ty added, â€œYou know, what if we asked Benji Washington and his kung-fu gang to help us? I bet they could round up that goblin.â€
â€œBenji Washington is not in a kung-fu gang!â€ Jack snapped. â€œHe made that up so weâ€™ll think heâ€™s important! This is serious stuff, Ty. We canâ€™t mess around with silly ideas like that! Now, we need to figure out how to get a net and a bunch of lemon drops â€¦â€
