20/20 Investigations, Inc. The Vacation. Chapter 9.

This is quite a storm, clouds and strong wind, but no thunder and lightning and no rain. Oh well, that’s okay, the cats likely wouldn’t enjoy the thunder and lightning anyway. We get everything together that we need, then up to the third floor. Down at the end of the one hall is a door and there was stairs leading to the attic. At least it’s nice and easy getting up there. About half way up the stairs and the door closes behind us. I go back and check, it’s locked. Meow, meow.=See, now we trapped, make it easy to kill us. Meow.=Not want to be killed, not look like any fun in that. It’s okay you two, if someone wanted to kill us they could have done it before now. Meow, meow.=Maybe true, but still… Once we are up there I look around, Kathy was right, it is absolutely filled with junk of all kinds. It would certainly take a long time to sort through it all.

Even longer now that Karin isn’t here to help. Meow?=You say Kathy, you say Karin, who is who? They are both the same woman Mr. Cat. Except the real Kathy, who is Karin, was changed for a different Kathy, but I don’t know why. This is all quite confusing and I have no idea what is going on. Meow.=Oh, now make sense. Now, make sure we all stay close together. Both cats jump up on an old dresser beside me and suddenly their ears go straight up! Meow!=Ghost! I look and sure enough there is Kathy about half way down the attic and she is glowing! I run down to her. Meow, meow.=There he go, chasing ghost again, we better follow. Just as I get close to her, she turns and looks at me and says, “go back home Steve, this is not for you”. Then she disappeared. Meow.=See, is ghost for sure.

I look around the area, trying to see how someone was doing this. Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything that would help solve this problem. I just want to prove to the cats that it’s some kind of projection. We go back to where we were. I want to start there and work our way through. Meow?=What we look for? I really don’t know Mr. Cat. Meow?=Then how we know if we find it? Good question, I’m not sure, but we want something that is different, something that doesn’t really fit for this place, maybe something for the castle, maybe a map. How come Muffin isn’t asking questions, she always does. I call her. Nothing. Meow.=She here when we get back, right there by box. We both look around, but no sign of Muffin anywhere. Then Mr. Cat’s ears go straight up again! Meow!=Muffin ghost! I turn and there is Kathy, holding Muffin.

I just know we going to die and be ghosts.

“Go home Steve, this is your last warning. You can have Muffin back this time, next time she dies.” But there is no way I can leave right now, you should know that, I said. “For now stay downstairs or in your room, stay out of the attic”. Then she disappeared. I went over to where she had been standing and there was Muffin lying on an old chair. She had obviously been knocked out with something. Meow?=Muffin dead? Mr. Cat looked very worried. No, she’s okay, she has just been knocked out somehow. Meow?=What we do now? I guess we go back to our room. Meow.=But attic door is locked. I imagine it will be open when we get there. And it was, so we head back to our room. Once again we check the room thoroughly but no listening device. I find it odd that she told us twice to go home, yet she should know we can’t.

What happen? Why we back in room?

Meow?=What that mean? I think it means there is someone else here too, that mysterious person who keeps watching us. But why? What is everyone looking for that is so exciting? And where did everyone go? Who is working with who? Muffin started to wake up. Meow, meow?=What happen? Why we back in room? Why I feel strange? I told her what had taken place. Meow, meow!=Too many ghosts, we pack and go home! There’s only one ghost Muffin, I said, and she’s not a ghost! Meow?=Then how we can see right through her? I can’t see through you. It’s just a projection of someone which makes it look like that. But we can’t leave yet and we can’t call for help, so we stay and keep looking. Meow!=But ghost Kathy say Muffin die if we look! Meow, meow!?=Ghost Kathy say that about Muffin? Now we don’t go home, we stay and fight, no one scare us away like that! Meow!=Okay, I with you on that, and I protect you Muffin!

To Be Continued.

  4. That’s the spirit, who on this earth can scare Steve ✨✍️☺️ Keep doing it Steve, you’ll definitely find out who tat is, I suspect Kathy is behind all these , if that is a hologram without her it can’t be done right 🧐 so she is part of the plan? or maybe she was forced to do it. But who is this? Is this some kind of old due you gott pay πŸ˜³πŸ€” What have you done in the past? Is there a flash back ? πŸ™„ Is this a vacation πŸ€”Will Muffin ever come with you for a vacation again 😜. Let’s wait and find out Tmrw ✨😍

      • Muffin is a good mouser and always gives me the mouse, she gets lots of praise which she likes, plus a special treat. Still, I wish the mice would stay outside! πŸ™„ Yesterday there was a vole that got inside, today a mouse. Getting bigger, not good.😳😹

      • I did plug up one hole, but they found a new one in the bathroom, that one is a bit tricky to fix, but I’m going to try, won’t be easy though.πŸ€”πŸ™„ These mice carry a terrible disease called hantavirus, think I spelled that wrong, that can actually be deadly.😬 So I don’t like these critters getting inside.😳
