Sammy,Marissa, and Holly were riding to Dot's new house when these boys crashed into them. Not to mention Sammy was riding on Marissa's handlebars. When they crashed Sammy and one of the boys were on the ground as Marissa , Holly, and the other boy laughed. One of the boys was Marissa's cousins best friend. The other boy has a skateboard that looks just like Sammy's stolen skateboard. After lots of arguing the boys older brother picks them up and they all start back to Dot's house.
After they got to Dot's house her dad asked them to ride to a funeral that he was dropping flowers off at so they could help him. On the way there a small frail women with a pig caught their eyes and they gave her a ride to the same funeral. The daughter of the deceased man caught the old women opening the casket and talking to him she ran and got her mother the old women walked out and begin to tell Holly and Sammy a story.
Lucinda(the old women) started to tell Holly and Sammy the story of Moustache Mary.She was pioneer women who pretended to be a man so she could move to the west. Mary was Lucinda's great-grandmother.When the Maynard family(the man that passed away is a Maynard) exposed Mary to be a woman. After he revealed her to be a fraud bad weather and killing Native Americans came their way. She was labeled as a curse or a witch. As the decades passed Lucinda was 17 when she went to town dance and danced with Maynard not even knowing it when they both found out and joked. The Maynard family tried everything to turn the boy from dating Lucinda.
The boys older brother ended up shooting the boy in the heart instead of Lucinda.
Lucinda sends Holly and Sammy off after she shows them Mary's cabin and explains she has seen Mary in spirit form. When are offered a ride on Lucinda's workers bike they take it and he tells them about the gold Lucinda has been looking for. He drops them off at Dot's and Marissa and Dot are putting cots together.Dot's older brothers say they're are going to a party and they are going to shoot fireworks. Dot's dad offers them a ride to Pioneer Park where her brothers are shooting fireworks.
All the girls went to the park and Heather's older brother Casey seemed to like Sammy.(Heather is Sammy's enemy and she doesn't know that is her brother) Lucinda's great-grandmother, Mary's, cabin burns down and the police and fire department say its just some sort of mistake but Sammy thinks otherwise. She tells an officer she knows(Officer Borsch) about what she thinks and as always he sais she need to stay out of the situation.
Sammy tells Hudson about how Dot had a real ghost experience with Moustache Mary and how she met Casey and Lucinda. She told him about the fire and the gold and everything in between. She doesn't forget about Penny the pig and Dot's brothers with the fireworks. How she crashed up hid bike and hurt her leg. She realizes no one can stop her no matter what. In her words "Even if I have to put on a moustache somewhere along the way."
