20/20 Investigations, Inc. Kidnapped! Chapter 9.

Karin and Muffin came running back. Muffin just sat staring toward where the bomb exploded. I pick her up, she had little tears running down her cheeks. Meow, meow=He my Mr. Cat. Yes, I know that Muffin. She lays her head against my chest. Meow, meow?=We go home now? We will if you really want to, but I thought you would want to help find these people that did this. Meow, meow!=Yes, we find them for sure, they not get away with this! That’s my kitten. Hmm, must be a rabbit out in the field, it was probably scared by the explosion, I can keep seeing it’s head as it jumps. Muffin, call for Mr. Cat. She calls out as loud as she could. Once more Muffin. She looks at me, but does it again. Suddenly Mr. Cat comes running out of the long grass. Meow, meow!=Mr. Cat, you okay! Meow!=Yes, I here, I okay. Meow.=I run with bomb and drop and keep running, I good at running real fast!

Where my Mr. Cat?

But grass so long I can’t see, so run in wrong direction. I try jumping up to see, but not work good, grass too long. Then I hear my Muffin call me, so I come fast as I can! Karin picks up Mr. Cat and says, you’re our hero today! Meow!=Not just me, Muffin too, she guard you to keep you safe. Meow!=And human Steve! He took bomb off to keep us all safe! Karin gives me a huge hug too and says, yes Mr. McLeod, you’re also our hero! Okay, enough congratulations, we need to leave here, they may come to check and see if the bomb worked. Who do you think it was?, asked Karin as we drive away. I’m not sure, but there are three different groups of people involved with this and one of them wants us dead. The other wants us to lead them to Katharina. Then there is Katharina herself. This is getting a bit complicated.

I okay Muffin.

We keep on driving for quite some time. The cats are snuggled together sleeping, says Karin. Good, I answered, then they should be fresh and awake when we arrive at this stone house. There’s the road we want. Wasn’t a very good road so we had to drive slowly. The road kept getting narrower as we went along, then suddenly we were in an overgrown yard with this large, old stone house in front of us. Meow, meow.=Look like good place for ghosts. Meow.=Yep, I agree, time to leave. I think Mr. Cat is right, let’s leave, said Karin. But this is our next clue, I said, we need to find out where to go next. I’ll go see if this key will open that door.

Off I went, but the key wouldn’t fit the lock, so this wasn’t our final destination. Hmm, that must mean…I look back and Karin is standing by the car and a man with a gun to her head. Then Sofia opens the door, she is also holding a gun, as is Willie standing next to her. Come in Steve, we have been waiting, you took longer than I thought finding this place. That bomb of yours slowed us down a bit, I said. I have no idea what you are talking about, said Sofia. Your name isn’t Sofia, is it? You have figured out who I am? I think so, probably the sister of Sophia from our case at the palace. Yes, she said, my name is Anna and Sophia was my sister and I vowed I would get you for that. So you came up with this scheme, I added. No, actually that is part of Katharina’s plan, I’m just borrowing part of it, she only told me about it up to this point.

Down by the river.

She said you would be able to figure out the rest. Except, you won’t be around to finish her little game, or whatever it is. They bring Karin and I over to a trap door in the floor. Willie opens it and they push both Karin and I into this pit. There’s no way out of this, I made sure of that, said Sofia. There should be enough air to last you about 12 hours, she said. Then the trap door was closed and locked. Silence. I don’t have my backpack or phone, but I do have some matches and oddly enough there is a candle, however I don’t light it since it would use up our oxygen faster. We have to sit here in the darkness?, asked Karin. It will give us some time, I said. What happened to the cats? I don’t know, when that guy showed up at the car they were already gone. That means they are around somewhere, perhaps they can find a way to open that trap door.

To be continued.

  2. My, oh, my! I am so glad Mr. Cat is okay! The plot thickens and I feel things will get worse before they get better. Let’s hope the cats will find a way to open the trap door. πŸ˜±πŸ˜¬πŸ”«

    • Yes, it wouldn’t be the same without Mr. Cat! Especially for Muffin! Hmm, opening that trap door might be a real challenge for those 2 cats, have to wait and see. And we don’t have much time!πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ”“πŸ”‘

  3. Yay!!!! Mt cat Is alive that’s good news, and what a turnover she isn’t Sofia? 😳 And she is Anna? Where did you hid these characters, very interesting, so why is she behaving like that, is the key belongs to the trap door? have you tried? hope the cats are fine, I knew it Sofia is a threat, see, she is bad, fine let’s figure out a way out first, things are getting Messy a lot Messy, hope you’ll find a way to get out of this mess Steve. We still haven’t got much clue about the kidnapped person and Katharina and Karl, just curious why they earned so many enemies, guess Katharina will have answers for all of us πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ Have a good day Steve ✨

    • Yes, Mr. Cat is a brave one!😺 And Sofia isn’t Sofia, she is Anna, sister to Sophia from our case called, “the palace”, check the last chapter of that one to get the story of how she was killed and that’s why Anna wants to kill me.😳 No lock on the trap door, just a large latch on the other side.😬 Maybe the cats can open it, but it’s a very heavy door.πŸ™€ I’m thinking more and more that Katharina was indeed kidnapped, but who did it and why?πŸ€” Karl is involved in something illegal so that might be why Katharina was kidnapped. Maybe.πŸ™„ We have to find Katharina,πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ if we can get out of here,😳 maybe there is a different way out. We don’t have much time though.😬😲 And I’m sure Anna and her friends will be back to make sure we are dead. Or not. This is getting interesting. Plus, who is trying to kill us with that bomb, it wasn’t Anna, so someone else is involved in this too. Oh my, too much happening. Well, have to sign off for now. Take care Simon and stay safe!πŸ˜€πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸ”“πŸ”‘

      • My god, you are pointing to that one , that’s brilliant 😍 How could you think like that? You are a brilliant series writer, you should sell it with Netflix first 🧐. Yes Katharina is kidnapped or not, but it’s okay we will eventually find that out, If Anna doesn’t know about the bomb, It’s definitely a gift from Karl’s. We should make him face the consequences, and Anna should realise her mistakes at any cost. Now what is that key for? is for a delicious cup of tea πŸ€” or not, it’s going to be real fun writing for you, I Never knew you have such a huge picture inside your head, you know someone in Netflix, sell this, it’s going to be a great sale…πŸ˜‰ Without further question, you should sell this bookπŸ˜‡

      • Thanks Simon! Yes, that key is the “key” to the puzzle.πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ”‘ Or maybe it doesn’t mean anything.πŸ€” Maybe it will open the door to find Katharina.πŸ˜ƒ Or maybe we need it to get out of something yet.😳 Or maybe it’s to get Katharina out of a place where the kidnappers have her locked up.😬 Or maybe it will just get us in trouble. Or maybe it will unlock a whole room full of coffee!!πŸ˜β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜• Or maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about.πŸ€”πŸ€ͺ We’ll find out some more tomorrow which is already today because I’m already in yesterday today while you’re in today tomorrow and maybe that’s what the key is for. Or maybe I’m tired. Sigh.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή

    • Yes, now things are getting a little more complicated. Sofia (Anna) wanted to kill me because she blamed me for her sister’s death. So this has nothing to do with Katharina, or does it? And who planted that bomb in the car? So many strange things happening. What next? Have a great day Ribana!πŸ˜€πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸ”“πŸ”‘

  4. ha ha ha, that’s a lot of May be, maybe it leads to the missing piece of your last case, maybe it is not about Anna and Sofia, or maybe you aren’t really locked Up at all, your cats may surprise you, or maybe it’s a prank πŸ˜‚. I’m looking forward to see the next part tonight, 😁 that means your morning my nightπŸ˜‚
