20/20 Investigations, Inc. Kidnapped! Chapter 11.

I woke up to both cats jumping on me! Meow, meow!=Time to wake up, morning now! Barely, but there was a bit of daylight at least. I gave the cats their breakfast, at least they get something to eat. I wonder if Anna and her friends will come back to check on us? If not, it’s going to be a long walk out of here to the main highway. But we will need to be ready in case they do come back. I make sure the cats are ready for a fight now that they have finished eating. I tell them to stay out of sight and watch. They will let me know if anyone comes along. I decide to let Karin sleep a little longer and wake her up once the sun is shining. Oh, I’m so hungry, she says, I don’t suppose you found some food? Right, way out here? All I have is cat food. Sigh, I’m almost hungry enough to try it, she said.

I watch good, says Mr. Cat.

Me too, I replied, if they come back to check on us, we will have a car to get out of here and get some food. They’ll be back, said Karin, I know Sofia, that is, Anna, well enough. She will want to make sure we’re dead! Okay, here’s one of my guns, if you’re sure you can use it. I know how to shoot, she says. But can you shoot someone if you have to?, I asked. She paused. I’m sure I can, she said finally. Hmm, I don’t think I will count on her help, it will be up to the cats and I this time. At least we have lots of water, there is a nice well out back. Hey, this water is like ice, screamed Karin. Helps wake you up, I said, and it’s nice for drinking. Are you sure it’s safe? I haven’t died yet, so it must be okay, I said. So Karin decides to drink some. At least we won’t die of thirst, Karin said, but I’m still hungry.

Me too, says Muffin.

It’s now 9 am and still no sign of anyone. How long do we wait?, asks Karin. Not too much longer, but I don’t really expect those people to be early risers. Mr. Cat comes running over to us. Meow!=Car coming! Okay, back to your spot, and off he goes. A couple minutes later a car pulls up with Willie and that other guy, no sign of Anna however. Guess she didn’t want to come. I had closed and latched the trap door again, I wanted them to come right inside. They came walking in without even looking around, guess they didn’t really expect us to get out of that hole in the ground. They opened the trap door and…the look on their faces when they saw the pit empty! Out came their guns quickly. That’s when I showed myself and told them to drop their guns. Willie fired once, then “thwock” and he dropped to the floor. Muffin got him first try. Karin was aiming but shaking too much. I fired and the other guy fell backward into the hole.

Then I went over and pushed Willie into the hole as well and closed the lid. I didn’t want anyone to find them just yet. Fortunately they brought back our rented car, I said to Karin, makes things a lot easier for us. She agreed that was a good thing. At least if someone does find Willie and Chuck, they won’t be looking for us, she said. Chuck? How did you know his name? He’s a friend of Sofia, I mean, Anna. Why do people have to change their name? Off we went back to the main highway, but which way to go from there? I know we need to look for a country estate next so, hmm, that would mean flying again, therefore an airport. The closest airport is the one we passed before, said Karin, it’s a long distance to another one.

Fun time on the river.

That’s the way we go then and we stop at that hotel to have something to eat. I wonder if they will be surprised to see us. Oddly the lady didn’t seem at all surprised, so she must be working for Katharina. When we were finished our rather late breakfast the lady told us about some nice country area with some large estates we might like to see. Hmm, why send us to the stone house knowing we would have to come back? Off we go, with the cats sleeping comfortably in the back seat. Stop over at that little spot, said Karin, it looks nice, and I need to talk. I stop the car and Karin looks at me. You checked me out didn’t you? I check everyone, that’s what a PI does, I said. I know that, she answered, yet you still gave me a gun. Yes, I trust you. For a PI you are a foolish man. She’s speaking very calmly now. I’m working for Anna too, she points the gun at me, now I have to kill you Steve.

To be continued.

  4. That was the most pretty picture of Mr Cat 😍😍 I love it…. Oops didn’t I tell you, I still suspect this woman 😳 Karin is the suspect I knew, maybe she works for Actual Karl or maybe she is a threat for him and Katharina and Hannah πŸ™„ oops I’m linking to everyone 🧐 Oops again, you gave her so much information πŸ˜„ and if you PI her before how did you not know she is a suspect πŸ§πŸ€” or maybe did you do this on purpose 🧐 πŸ€” I should wait to figure that out, 😡 This story is simply taking us to different levels ✨✍️ Awesome writing Steve ✨😍 Totally Enjoyed it πŸ˜ƒ

    • Meow!=Thanks!😻
      Yep, Karin caught me totally off guard on this one, I never would have suspected it.πŸ˜³πŸ˜¬πŸ™€ Maybe she wants to kill Katharina and she’s been using me to find her.πŸ€”πŸ˜³ Now she knows where to look, even if not the exact spot, so she doesn’t need me anymore.😲😬 This is not looking good! No time to do anything, even the cats can’t help.πŸ™€πŸ™€ What will happen?πŸ€” Is this the end of the series?😳😳 Is there no more coffee?πŸ€ͺβ˜•β˜•

      • yes, you gave away too many informationπŸ™„ Karin is really bad, very bad. Hope she didn’t kill or hurt anyone. She deserves an actress award. I suspect she or her team is already informed about whatever you shared with her, she must have been constantly in touch with her partners. will you save? Katharina and Everyone πŸ™„πŸ§ This series is lot lot better than any other series with so many shocking suspense πŸ˜ƒβœ¨βœοΈ Well done Steve, Waiting to know about the key and Karl and Katharina 😍

      • Yes, I’m sure she shared all the information with whoever she is working with, that makes things really bad. Providing I live through this. But what will happen here? What will happen to the cats if I get killed? Will they escape? I still don’t know what this key is for, and Muffin has it for safety reasons. Today perhaps we will get some answers. Or not. Stay tuned!
        Thanks so much Simon, glad you are enjoying this one!πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ”“πŸ”‘πŸ˜³πŸ™€πŸ™€

      • Yes, you’re right, I need to be more careful about sharing information from now on.πŸ˜• But Karin just seemed like someone I could trust.πŸ‘±β€β™€οΈ Like you said, she is a good actor.πŸ˜²πŸ™€ But how do I get out of this one?πŸ€”πŸ˜³ Maybe I forgot to put bullets in the gun?πŸ€”πŸ™„ Maybe I’ll just get shot and that will end the series.😳πŸ€ͺ But what will happen to the cats?😬 Oh my, this is bad, very bad. I need to get out of this somehow.πŸ€”
