20/20 Investigations, Inc., Kidnapped, Chapter 4.

Meow, meow?=They call us amateurs? We not amateurs. We fight big crime organization and win, we pros now, we show them! Meow!=Yeah, we not amateurs, well, maybe me a little. Yes, you two, we will show them we’re not amateurs, not even you Mr. Cat! These people are not pros, tacking a note to the door like that is more like an amateur, not what a pro would do. Meow?=What pro would do? They would just come along and kill us. Meow.=Not comforting thought. Okay, now I need to check on some leads, first will be Katharina’s two friends if they will talk to me. I called the one but no answer, so I tried the other one. She answered her phone so I explained to her who I was and that I was trying to locate Katharina. Would you be willing to talk with me? She hesitated a bit but finally agreed and named a restaurant where we could meet.

Okay you two, I can’t take you to a restaurant with me but I have a job for you to do anyway. Meow, meow!=We ready for anything! Good, first is to put your backpacks on and get your slingshots ready. You need to be on guard all the time, don’t be afraid to use those slingshots if someone comes in here. I’ll make sure everything is locked. Plus I want you to check through the house thoroughly and look for the following things. Meow, meow.=Okay, that look easy. Meow.=Me ready too. Just let them try touch my Muffin! Then off I went to meet this young woman. I got to the restaurant and saw the woman right away, her long blonde hair was easy to see. Her name is Sofia and she brought her friend Karin along as well. Karin was the woman that didn’t answer her phone.

We had a nice lunch together talking about Katharina and her family, but when I asked about Karl both women said they were disgusted with him. Apparently he is not Katharina’s father and Hannah just married him a little over a year ago. He always hated Katharina from the beginning, said Karin. I asked them what kind of business he was involved with. No one knows for sure, except maybe Hannah, said Sofia, but he does have a lot of money. See that building over there? His office takes up the 10th floor. Hmm, that is interesting, maybe I should pay him a surprise visit, since I’m down here anyway. But I guess not right now, I’m trying to stay away from him. Of course, the kidnappers know I’m here now anyway so guess it wouldn’t make a difference. So, why do you think Karl wants Katharina back? Because of Hannah, he will do anything for her, he treats her very well, answered Karin. That’s true, added Sofia, it’s so different how he treats the two of them.

And Hannah knows it, but still doesn’t do anything about it, very strange. They also told me that Karl’s business associates were still in the house when Katharina went over to tell them to leave, and no one has seen her since. Now I need to talk with Karl, this info doesn’t match what he told me. Just then, oh, I have to leave, I told Sofia and Karin, trouble at home. Call me at this number if you can think of anything that might help me. Maybe we can meet again and talk some more. They both agreed. I paid for the meal and left as quickly as I could. When I got back there was no car and no sign of trouble anywhere outside. The front door was open however so I went in quickly without thinking… Next thing I know Sofia is gently slapping my face. Wow, what happened?

My poor head, I got hit hard. How did you two get here? We followed you in case you were in trouble or something. We saw your car out front and just waited for a bit, then another car came along and picked up 3 guys from the house and left. The door was open so we came in. They were carrying something when they came out, said Karin. Suddenly, my cats! Where are my cats? We never saw any cats, said Sofia. I started calling them and they came running down the stairs. Meow!=Have big news to tell! Meow, meow!=Yes, one man was Karl’s driver! Now we are getting somewhere. Coming here could put you in danger, I said, those kidnappers could come after you now. Maybe we should all stay together, said Sofia. I like that better than being alone, said Karin. She was definitely scared while Sofia was amazingly calm. Now, what did those men take that was so important?

To be continued.

  4. WellπŸ€” Sophia and Karen, hmm, new characters, I suspect Sofia, she is surprisingly calm, and Author Steve is diverting the case to Sophia by saying she is surprisingly calm, maybe she is a suspect, Karl or Karl’s driver, there is a doubt with these two, last time also we happened to see Karl’s drivee, maybe Karl’s driver is the problem or Mr. Karl or Sophia. Let’s find out, Great Steve and stop getting blacked out, you should wear a Helmut, keep getting knocked off in the head πŸ˜‚ πŸ’‚. Looking forward to find the killer 😍✨

    • Yes, at first I didn’t suspect Sofia and Karin but now I’m not so sure. Perhaps Sofia and Karl’s driver are working together and kidnapped Katharina. I just don’t trust Karl at all. Sofia is too calm and relaxed,πŸ™„ Karin is more nervous,😜 but a normal kind of nervous which I would expect when her best friend is kidnapped. I’m kicking myself for not seeing something important that the kidnappers came back for.πŸ™„πŸ˜• Why would they risk coming back for anything?πŸ€” What was it?πŸ€” Yep, I need to be more careful and not rush into places, just go slow and watch out! Much more to come!πŸ˜€πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • I suspect as they voluntarily shows up, and not only that, they followed you. There is something, either Karin or Sofia, something is not right, likewise Karls driver too, good plan, Karls driver and Sofia as a team, but why come back, what for? did they miss a evidence during the kidnap, have they got what they came to search for.πŸ€” Lot to come😊 I’m waiting for your creativity πŸ˜‰

      • There just might be a surprise or two waiting for us in this story. I’m concerned about those two ladies following me too. Why would they do that?πŸ€” It could have been dangerous.😬 Or are they trying to lead me into a trap?πŸ˜³πŸ™€πŸ™€ Next chapter coming soon!😁😺😺

    • Things have taken an interesting turn. Why would the kidnappers come back for something?πŸ€” Was it something they had left behind or something else?😳 And why didn’t I see it before?πŸ™„ More on the way!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
