Chapter 32 

Avery met with Shaun at Tate Industries over the weekend.

“We need to open up the safe as soon as possible, Avery,” Shaun said. “Mr. Hertz has been pestering us for a decision. I don’t know if I should tell him the truth or lie to him… I’m stuck because I have nothing to show for it!”

Avery nodded and said, “I wrote down some numbers on a piece of paper last night. I think my father’s passcode would be a combination of these numbers.”

Shaun took the piece of paper out of Avery’s hand, glanced at the numbers, then nodded and said, “Let’s give it a try now!”

They entered the secret chamber, approached the safe, and began trying out possible combinations.

However, things did not go as smoothly as they had hoped.

After countless failed attempts, Avery frowned and let out a heavy sigh.

“Would Wanda know what the code is?” she said. “The code to our front door is a combination of my dad and Wanda’s birthdays. He was good to her before he got sick.”

Shaun shook his head and said, “If she knew how valuable this new system is, she would have taken it with her before she left.”

“Do you think someone could have already taken the things in the safe?” Avery asked.
