Before the Beginning
Town of Tupelo Landing
That same day, Mo went to karate night at the cafe. Then Joe Starr came into the cafe to find clues. He asked everyone if they know what maybe happened to Mr.Jesse. He got Anna Celeste and she said she saw a boy at Mr.Jesse's house earlier that day. After Anna described the boy Mo knew she was talking about Dale. That night Mo called Dale and told him the story. Late that night he snuck into Mo's house without his mom's permission. He and Mo talked. That night they decided to become detectives. They called themselves the Desperado Detectives. The next morning the Detectives went to Dale's house. Dale's mom grounded him so Mo was on her own. When Dale was not doing chores, the two would either be at the cafe or looking for clues of Mr.Jesse's death. One day when Dale was at home cleaning out the tobacco barn, Mo went into Mr.Jesse's yard where Starr and Deputy Marla were. Starr didn't know Mo was there. She fell out of the tree she was sitting in and landed right next to the murder weapon.(I can't tell you what it is.) Everything went fine after that. Mo and Dale found more clues.(I can't tell you the clues they found either.) Then one day there is a carnival. Mo and Dale went. When Mo got home, Miss Lana and the Colonel were missing. Mo started staying with Miss Rose and Dale. Starr,Lavender and the Desperado Detectives are now looking for them.
