20/20 Investigations, Inc…Stone House, Chapter 3.

Clouds in front of the moon.

It isn’t really too long before I wake up, my head still feeling a bit dizzy from whatever was in that briefcase.  Muffin is still lying beside me so I try to wake her up.  This would naturally affect her more than me due to her small size.  It was some kind of gas that knocked us out, but why?  I looked in the briefcase, my wallet was in there and a note was inside my wallet.  Muffin is awake now, though a bit wobbly, so I read the note to her.

Part of the fountain park in Nice, France.

“I’m sorry for this, but I had to make sure you are who you claim to be.  My life is in danger and I just don’t know who I can trust right now.  You were highly recommended to me by a mutual friend though I can’t give the name of this friend in case this note was to fall into the wrong hands.  I don’t want our friend to be involved in this.  I stumbled onto something important which is in the small black leather case.  I need you to protect this, don’t let anyone have it, not anyone!  There are two handguns in the wall safe of your room and the combination is here in the briefcase.  Also in the safe is £2,000 for you to use anyway you like and I will give you more as needed.

From my vacation in Nice, France.

Everything else that you will need is in the briefcase.  I know this sounds like something weird, but I really do need your help.  Please, protect that leather case and protect me.  Your first task will be to find me, I can’t tell you where I am.  But thinking of our friend and how you helped our friend, will lead you to me.  I have left 2 cars for you to use, take your choice.  The one car is very fast, you might need that at times.  If you would rather not take the case, just call my lawyer, he will arrange for you to go home.  But…please help.  JR.”

More from Nice, France last year.

Well Muffin, what do you think?  Meow, meow!!  We not scaredy cats, we best PI’s, we help JR!!  Okay, I totally agree with you Muffin, this is our case and we’re going to do it! At least we know something now, even if it’s not much.  I checked around for the wall safe, nicely hidden behind a wall panel down by the floor and behind a chair.  The money and guns were there so I took them out and put the black leather case inside the safe.  It’s too late to do anything tonight, so we may as well have something to eat and get a good night’s sleep so we can have a fresh start in the morning.  We both slept very well and were up early and had our breakfast.  It was still too early to go into town so we decided to look around the house.  It’s a big place for sure, 8 large bedrooms, living room, kitchen and large dining room, a game room and a nice large and comfortable looking library.

More from Nice.

Wish I had more time to spend in this library, but I doubt there will be time for reading.  Hmm, maybe I will come here later and read a bit.  Meow, meow!=Car outside on road, man looking at house.  I look out the window, sure enough, a nice shiny black car with a guy staring at the house.  I get out my mini scope, yep, it’s the man from the plane and there is someone else in the car, but I can’t make out who.  Probably the woman that was with him on the plane.  Meow, meow?=Maybe I go out and get close to car?  No Muffin, not this time, I don’t want you spotted out there.  At that point the car drove away.  How did they know this was the right house?  They likely found out already that the address is a fake one, so maybe they are just looking at all the stone houses in the area.  That could be a lot.  Or is someone helping them with information?

To be continued.

Steve and Muffin.

    • Yep, we’re both ready to go on this now! If we only knew where to go. It is a strange one for sure! Thanks for reading!😃😺🕵️‍♂️🕵️‍♀️🌙


    • This is certainly something different. Find someone we don’t know with only 1 vague clue? And hopefully without getting killed!
      Hope you have a great evening Ribana!😃😺🌞🕵️‍♂️🕵️‍♀️

This is a bit different, we have to find someone we don’t know,🤔 have no picture of this person,🙄 don’t know if it’s a man or woman😬 and we don’t know where to look.😲 Just one clue, we each have the same friend, what kind of clue is that??😳😳 And we have to find this person without getting killed,😲😳 which would be nice.😁😸🕵️‍♂️🕵️‍♀️

      • Yes, finding an unknown mutual friends is tough, and what if one of you is been bugged was my thought, because for this unknown person must need to track your steps and what if they did 😜 that’s a lot of questions and I’m sure we both are pulling it to a new way 😂😉. Happy writing Steve ✨✍️

      • Yes, it’s always possible we were bugged, but Muffin thought about that and we checked ourselves.😁😸 But, the rooms in the house could be bugged and the cars.🤔😳 And maybe it wasn’t JR who left the note, maybe it was the man chasing JR and hoping I will lead him to JR?🤔😳🙄 And what is in that leather case that is locked?🤔 I could cut it open, but maybe that’s got a trap in it.😬 So many things. But how to find someone I don’t know and have never seen?😲😳 This is so odd. Can we do it?😜 Will we get captured?😬 Will we run out of coffee?😳😳☕☕
        Next chapter coming Monday!😃😺🕵️‍♂️🕵️‍♀️
