The Cherry Cheesecake Mystery
By Colleen Messina
  

1     The golden disk of cheesecake gleamed on the refrigerator shelf. The glistening clear red gel of cherry glaze made a red sea on its top. It was truly a work of art! Then the cherry cheesecake crime occurred. The delectable, delicious dessert was prematurely sliced! The two girls in front of the open refrigerator erupted in accusations.
 
2     "You did it," screamed Olivia, the shorter but more lovely of the sisters.
 
3     "You can't prove anything!" screamed Victoria back.
 
4     "I will prove it, and you will be in so much trouble forever," said Olivia, in a sly but deadly tone.
 
5     "Mom won't believe anything without proof," said Victoria.
 
6     The two sisters flounced off to their rooms.
 
7     Mom came home from work and peeked at her creation. She was so proud of her contribution for the potluck supper tonight. Another scream pierced the late afternoon stillness.
 
8     "Who ate a slice of cheesecake?" she wailed. The cherry cheesecake crime was exposed.
