"It was nice of Fred to let us borrow the van for the weekend." Velma nodded as she sat beside Daphne in the front of the Mystery Machine, reading the map as the brightly coloured van made its way out of their home town.
"Well, he was so intent on staying in town for the Trap Convention, and Shaggy had the track meet, so neither of them really wanted to come with us," Velma eventually said as she closed the book. "It makes a nice change for us to have a girl's weekend."
Daphne nodded, her green scarf moving slightly in the breeze that came in through the open window. "Oh I so agree - I love Fred dearly, but we do need some time away from them and the Mystery Incorporated team."
Velma nodded as she crossed her arms in front of her. "So this cousin of yours - how well do you know her?"
"Oh, we used to visit them all the time when we were all younger," Daphne said as they turned onto the freeway. "Penny and I used

Dee Dee embraced the small, hirsute man who was standing in the tent, holding a large wooden club in his hands.
"Oogga Booga Cavey need find Dee Dee," he eventually said as he was let free. "Oogga Booga girls had to be saved from boom."
"What, someone attacked the girls," Dee Dee said as she looked at him. "What happened - are they all right?"
"Oogga Booga they fine - ate bomb. Taste like spicy chicken - have same effect too."
Dee Dee had to suppress a laugh as she stroked his head. "Thanks Cavey - I always know we can depend on you." He blushed before saying "oogga booga - Dee Dee in danger too. Taffy say bad man coming for her."
His words made Dee Dee frown. "Bad men - what..." Her words were interrupted by the sound of shouting outside, and as she looked out of the tent she saw the smoke bomb exploding, the black plumes enveloping the car.

As Penny escorted Daphne and Velma into the dining room, they found a tall, well built African American woman sitting there already, who stood up as they came in.
"Hi Daphne," she said as she came over and embraced the new arrival, "It's been a long time!"
"DEE!" Daphne exclaimed as she returned the hug, "I didn't know you would be here!"
"Penelope employed me to help with the security arrangements," she said as she finally let go of Daphne. She was dressed in a red roll neck sweater, blue denim skirt and knee high red leather boots, with her hair tightly permed.
"So you know Dee Dee - I should have realised you would have met before."
"It was a mystery convention," Velma said as she sat down at the table, "Dee and the others were there as well. We'll tell you the tale later. What's for dinner anyway?"
"Are you sure something of Shaggy hasn't rubbed off on you," Daphne said as she sat at the table as well. Dee Dee laughed bef

"The Hooded Claw? But he must be dead - it was your great-grandmother who had all the trouble with him. Why would you think that?"
Velma looked across the table at Dee Dee and Daphne, while Peter held Penny's shoulders. "It just seems so funny hearing that voice," was all she would say eventually.
"Look, Penny, it's just somebody's stupid idea of a joke. Don't let it get to you - besides, it's time for all of you to get into costume. Go on - I'll see you outside."
Daphne and Velma stood up and walked out of the room, as Dee Dee looked at a small parcel that had arrived for her.
"Wonder what the girls are sending me now," she said as she looked at the return address label.

Velma and Daphne have arrived at the stately home of Daphne's friend Penny Pitstop, but perils are approaching from all sides.
A villainous fiend, taking the name of The Hooded Claw, has traced a jewel known as The Star of Alamein. The trail has led to Pitstop Manor - a place where he feel she can avenge the ignominy poured on his ancestor.
Penny had hired Dee Dee, of the San Francisco based Teen Angels, to help with security, but over the last 24 hours the girls have been kidnapped, tied up, nearly killed and generally menaced by not only The Hooded Claw, but another villain who is after The Star - or may be after Daphne.

"All right, who wants to be first?"
Alice and Jannifer looked at each other, then said in unison "Us please."
"Right - sit on the bed, side by side. Heidi - you take one coil of rope, I'll take another."
The two girls sat on the bed, the skirts of their nightdresses covering their laps as they wondered what was going to happen next. "Both of you," Amy said as she and Heidi made a loop at one end of the coil, "Put your hands in front of you, palm to palm. We're going to do to you what I've done to Heidi and Cindy when Cindy has stayed over a few times."
The two girls watched as Heidi and her mother passed the rope over their upper bodies, pulling it so that their arms were held into their sides around their lower chests, and then took it round a few more times. As they did this, and then fed the rope through the centre of the loop at the front, Andrea said "I want to get

"All right then," Natalie said as she stood up and walked over to Alice, "I promise I'll be gentle. Stand up and put your hands behind your back."
"Like this," Alice said as she crossed her wrists behind her back. "Nah - put your palms together. It's you first time, and it will be more comfortable."
Alice looked over her shoulder as she watched Natalie wrap the rope around her wrists, pulling them together as she did so. "That actually feels nice," she said as the soft cords hugged her skin, Natalie taking care to keep the loops next to each other as she passed it round several times. She allowed herself a smile as she felt the rope tightening around her wrist as Natalie cinched the coils, and then tied the knot off, tucking it into the ropes.
"Try wriggling your hands," Natalie said as she stepped back.

"Ugtfr," she mumbled as Natalie looked at the ropes around her.
"Yeah - but I thought you or Alice had helped me. Turns out it was neither of you."
Jannifer looked down tot eh floor to see Alice sitting there, wriggling round in her red nightdress with her blindfold and gag still in place.
"Yeah - I can't hear anything downstairs, so I have a feeling the others have taken care of each other. Roll over onto your side and I'll start to untie you, then we can both help Alice."
It took ten minutes, but eventually Natalie was sitting on the bed, watching Alice and Jannifer as they rubbed their wrists.

"Get a move on we're on a tight schedule here."
"All right just let me finish up here."
She watched from her position lying on the table as her sister's legs were pulled together by the rope that was passed around her legs, above her knees. They had been surprised when they returned home by the masked gang, who had forced them into the office and proceeded to bind her wrists together behind her back while her sister watched.
She was wearing a sliver grey silk blouse and a dark skirt, and offered no resistance as she was forced to sit on the mahogany desk and watch one of the intruders bind her ankles and legs, quickly yet tightly, with the rope passing between her legs to further tighten it. As he was doing this, another of the gang was talking to her sister, making her recite the combination to the safe forwards and backwards. She was a couple of years younger, and wore horn rimmed glasses that complemented the chest

“You’ve still got it, Kirsty,” she said to herself with a smile. She was rapidly approaching her fiftieth birthday, but looked younger thanks to her personal trainer and diet. Her long blonde hair was cut in a fringe over her eyes, while the purple sleeveless dress she was wearing hugged her figure. It was accentuated by the wide black leather belt she was wearing around her waist, and the hem came to just above her knees.
Walking into the front room, she sat on the chair and started to put on the purple wedge shoes that matched her dress. Once her daughters were there, the plan was to surprise her own mother on this, her seventieth birthday, with a meal out at an exclusive restaurant.

Charlotte Danson smiled at her lawyer as he put on his coat and collected his briefcase. The twenty two year old was wearing a Springsteen concert t-shirt, with the cover of Born in the USA on the front, grey leggings with baggy white socks pulled over the bottom, and a pair of slippers on her feet. Her long dark hair fell over her shoulders, while her blue eyes sparkled almost as much as her smile.
