The Investigators, Inc. Treasure Hunt. Chapter 3.

Hmm, could that agent have been at the chateau? He would need to know about some of the secret passageways then, that makes him a big suspect. I’m not even sure about some of the people in this small hospital, there’s one nurse that just gives a weird feeling whenever he comes in the room, the cats agree with me too. And I notice the doctor seems to be uncomfortable whenever that nurse is around. It was quiet, Calanthe and I were talking, she felt good and wanted to leave but the doctor wanted to keep her one more night just to make sure she was okay. I agreed with the doctor. The nurse came in who is able to speak English well so I told her I didn’t want that other nurse coming in here anymore. She said the doctor would have to make that decision.

I told her that if he comes in again I would throw him out, I don’t trust him. Then she confided that she didn’t like him either, she always got a cold feeling when he was around. Apparently he only started working there 2 days ago. That seems too convenient. She came back with a paper for me to sign stating I had a complaint with this nurse and didn’t want him to care for Calanthe. I gladly signed it. She left, Calanthe was asleep, Muffin curled up beside her, I sat in the big comfortable chair that was in the room and took a short nap. Mr. Cat was on guard duty, so he sat on the window sill, looking out and in. All continued quiet, until Mr. Cat was waking me up by slapping my face with his tail. Muffin was on the bed growling and hissing and that male nurse was back with a needle in his hand!

Beginning her jump, eyes fixed on that nurse! No one hurt my human, she meows!

I jumped up and grabbed his arm and told him to leave. Oh my, jumping up like that awakened my spinal injury, but I couldn’t show the pain. I told him again to leave and pointed at the door. He was quick and turned me slightly, punching me hard on my lower spine, right where I had been shot. That was too much, my legs crumbled and I fell to the floor. He kicked me in the stomach, but Muffin was already in the air and landed right on his back with all 18 claws raking his back! And Mr. Cat wrapped himself around the man’s leg, biting and clawing. He screamed just as the doctor and two more nurses came in and managed to subdue this nurse. The cats jumped off him and I pulled myself away and also pulled out my gun. My mistake for not having the slingshots on the cats.

Okay, that enough bad human, now I join the fight!

Seeing my gun settled the man down and he stayed sitting on the floor until the police arrived and took him away. The police were very happy to be helping a fellow officer. I’m not sure how Rossana managed that, but it sure is helping to be an undercover officer. Mind you, I’m not so undercover now. The doctor looked at my back and asked how it happened. I told him I was shot there in another case about a month ago. He felt I should be relaxing still, not taking on new cases. Off he went to check out that needle. He came back in a little while and said it was filled with poison and Calanthe would have died very quickly. He also ordered me, as my doctor, to sleep in the other bed, not in the chair, it would be better for my back. He also gave me some painkillers for it. He’s a good doctor, and seems much more relaxed now. Everything was quiet the rest of the day and night.

Off we go.

In the morning we left the hospital and went on our way to the chateau. A little ways out of town I turned onto a smaller road. “Where are you going?”, asked Calanthe, “this won’t take us back to the chateau.” “We’re not going back there right now,” I said, “we’re heading back to my chateau instead. We will get there early enough to look around a bit before it gets dark. According to the lawyer that agent doesn’t know about this chateau, so it might be a good place to relax for a day or two and think.” Meow,meow.=Oh, oh, he going to think again, that mean trouble coming. Meow.=Yep, every time he think, we get in trouble. Giggle, giggle. “What are you two giggling about?”,asked Calanthe. Meow,meow=When he think, we always get in trouble. Meow.=Yep, that true. Calanthe starting laughing…for about 5 minutes. It wasn’t that funny. Here we are, home at last.

To Be Continued.

    • What did you thought that it was that you thought that you thought it was so funny?πŸ€”πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‘©


      • That’s what I think too. Squirrels. Just blew it.πŸ˜’ Yep, it was okay, but my sciatic nerve was terrible so I decided against walking today.😬😲 Beautiful day though, 41 and sunny, light breeze, snow melting.😁🌞 Springtime…I wish.πŸ™„


      • Yep, spring is a wonderful time of year! I had to breakdown and use some pain meds today. Just a bit more pain than I could deal with. I think I’m gonna go check out a few plots of land tomorrow. I’ve been doing some shopping on line looking at what’s out there. Should be a fin time!😁

      • Ooohh! Well, it’s still land.πŸ™„ Good for you, build your own house,🏑 that way you get exactly what you want.😁


      • Yep, take your time looking around, don’t rush. That’s good too, you don’t want to just sit around at home all the time. Hmm, time to go again, can’t sit any longer anyway. Good night Dusty.πŸ˜πŸŒ™πŸ˜΄


  1. This has just gotten interesting. Even outside the chateau they are trying to kill everyone. BTW does the map indicate any passages that lead outside the chateau and the guest house. Perhaps there is a way to get in without being noticed. Lastly are we sure the shot was for Calanthe and not you?

    • No, there is nothing to indicate an outside entrance to a passage, but there may be one anyway, not all passages are on the map. A good thing to check for. I have been wondering about that too, maybe it was meant for me, after all, I was sleeping he might have thought it would be easy to do.πŸ€”

  2. Yes! Some questions answered, but more still unanswered. Very interesting… Why was that doctor uncomfortable until the nurse was arrested? What does he know? How does he tie in? πŸ€”

    • Yes, I think the doctor was nervous just because of that nurse, maybe he was told something, or like that other nurse, just felt something when he was around. I’m still not sure about that hospital, but I think the doctor is okay. Maybe it was only the one nurse that was bad, after all, amazing timing for him to start working there only 2 days ago.πŸ€”πŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‘©


      • I agree with you. The doctor probably just was uneasy around the nurse. It seems the nurse was planted there to finish the job knowing the ladies would go there after they were poisoned. 😳. However, they could have made the dose lethal at the chateau unless they wanted to get you away from the chateau for a period of time. πŸ€”

      • Well, the dose was lethal for Linnea, unless she was given more poison at the hospital.😬 That’s being checked and we will find out next time. Yes, I have thought they might want us away from the chateau for a longer time, but why?πŸ€”


  3. Time to relax ! Things are heating up quickly…I do not believe that you are well after going through all that torture ! I still do not trust Calanthe…kudos to the cats ! Now for the next chapter…β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈπŸ€­πŸ€”πŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΎπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜΄

    • Yes, things are happening, but why? Yep, those cats did a great job, even without their slingshots! Hmm, the cats trust Calanthe, so for now I will go with them, they will warn me of any changes I’m sure.πŸ˜³πŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‘©


    • Yes, they did a great job those two, even without their slingshots to use. It’s hard to know who I can trust right now, if anyone.πŸ€”πŸ˜³πŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‘©
