But tonight we hear Pop’s heavy footsteps coming up the stairs. “Goodbye,” I tell Zack, whose eyes are the size of pizzas. ” The door flies open and Pop looms over us. “You’re making your mother an old woman before her time,” he says. We hang our heads. The poor guy doesn’t realize Mom is old already. She’s at least thirty. She still looks pretty good, though. Pop goes into his “I want you to turn over a new leaf immediately” speech. And immediately Zack asks what time it is. Pop looks at him, openmouthed.
One thing about Pop. He has limited imagination. We figure out his password in three tries. Helen, Mom’s name. The rest should have been easy. Zack was born knowing how to get the best out of a computer. He puts in bomb + blow up + how to. “Not enough,” I say. ” “Right,” Zack says. But Steadman leans over to wipe a drop of chocolate milk off the shift key. And that’s when it happens. The entire glass of milk splats down on the keyboard and the screen goes dark. My mouth turns as dry as Diglio’s front lawn.
Steadman’s door is locked. I rattle the knob. “Let us in,” Zack says, nose to the crack. ” Steadman asks. He does this every time. It could be anything. “Tinwitty Night,” I say through a mouthful of tuna fish. “Soup,” Zack says. Steadman’s laughing. ” 56 “No time to waste,” I tell Zack. Zack nods. ” My voice is loud. ” Steadman fumbles with the door. We hear clicks and clacks and rattles. ” He sounds a little frantic. I crouch down, trying to look through the keyhole. ” He jiggles. Nothing happens.
