The Investigators, Inc. Nowhere. Chapter 9.

We were just talking more about different cases we have been on. Well, they were talking and I was trying hard to remember something, anything, from what they said. But there was absolutely nothing. “You know, that first Japanese doctor was removed, probably because he wouldn’t go along with this plan, having this probe in my brain,” I said, “but the retired doctor was will to go along with it. Maybe we need to go and talk to him.” “That might be a good idea,” said Lena, “once you are well enough to travel again. You’re going to rest for a while first though.” Meow,meow.=No time for vacation, need to find out what going on, and fast. Meow.=Yep, or human Steve might not be around much longer. “Hmm, I guess you’re right,” sighed Lena, “I would like to get this figured out too. I’m just worried about you Steve.”

We watch tonight, bad things here.

“Well, there will be more to worry about if we don’t get this mystery solved quickly,” I said. Right then a nurse came in and said it was time for a needle. I’m getting to feel like a pincushion. Then Muffin got in between us and started growling and hissing at the nurse. “Get that thing away from me,” she shouted. Lena jumped in and grabbed the nurses hand, the one holding the needle and started yelling for help. Another nurse came in and between him and Lena they got the needle away from the first nurse. Then security came in and took the nurse. The second nurse took the needle away with him. Meow,meow.=She not good person, I could tell, she want to hurt you.

“Thanks Muffin,” I said, “you did the right thing.” The doctor came in a short time later and said there was enough poison in that needle to kill me in less than 5 minutes. He said one of their security people would be outside my door at all times. Also that nurse didn’t even work here. “What’s wrong with your paw Muffin?”, I asked her. Meow,meow.=It sore, been sore for couple days, but worse now. I asked the doctor if he could take a look and he did. He left and came back later with some things and a needle. Meow,meow!=Not like needles, they hurt! The doctor said it was just something to freeze her foot so he could remove something inside.

Yep, we watch, pretend to sleep, we good at this.

It wasn’t long and he had removed a small device. Meow.=That tracking device, that how they follow us. The doctor then checked Mr. Cat too and sure enough he had one in his foot too. That must have happened when they first took us and put that probe in my head. Good thing that device was starting to hurt Muffin’s foot. “Call Baldwin and see if he can get some of his security team over here,” I said to Lena. She called and told Baldwin what had happened and there was 4 of his security people here within two hours. They would work in shifts, two at a time. So the hospital took their security person off. “This is just crazy,” I said, “someone is trying to kill me even though I can’t remember anything.” “Hmm, that might be a good sign Steve,” said Lena, “maybe they know your loss of memory will only be temporary.”

“Well, that is a nice thought,” I said. Then more pictures of people came to mind…and voices…but not clear enough to hear what they said. Muffin and Mr. Cat were there too, but asleep. Faces…I can’t make out who it is…frustrating. I shook my head and told them about what had come to mind just then. “Maybe that’s the night you were kidnapped,” said Lena, “if it comes back you need to try and focus on it, maybe we can learn something.” I had a private room, Baldwin insisted, and they brought in a bed for Lena. Why is Baldwin helping so much? Why is Lena helping? The cats came over to hug me goodnight, it was time to sleep again. They whispered to me that they would keep watch tonight. Meow,meow.=Something not right, I feel it. Meow.=Yep, I feel too, not good, we need to leave here soon. More danger, I’m thinking. And I’m no help. I’m just frustrated…and still nowhere.

To Be Continued.

    • The cats are good at picking out the bad ones, the doctor was okay, but since I’m not really hurt we will be leaving in the morning for sure. I think the cats are fine, they haven’t shown any sign of problems until Muffin’s sore foot.πŸ€”πŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

  2. I knew there had to be a bug. But did they find the only ones. I know Baldwin id with you. Did Calanthe have romantic interests on you? jealous women are known to do strange things. and now Linnea is out of the way. I keep going back to the fact that all this started on the day before you were supposed to marry. That being said. What are Lena’s feelings??

    • Yes, that is interesting, it started just at that time, why is that? Coincidence? Or planned? But why would it be planned? Who had/has something against us getting married. They effectively stopped it now so why carry on? Calanthe? I don’t think so. Lena did, but she couldn’t handle life as a PI so we went our separate ways and just decided to remain friends. If only I could remember something. Time for a private talk with the cats.

  3. so the memory loss is temporary. Baldwin knows that and so does Lena, this help got something hidden πŸ€”a purpose , something is missing. hmm, we will find that soon, mean while we got Muffin to take care of. Hope Muffin hand feels better.

    • Yes, Muffin will heal fast now that the tracking device is out.😺 And the doctor did it right in my room so we could watch and make sure he was doing things right.πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ But will my memory ever come back?πŸ€” Or will I be a PI without a past?😬 But that means everything I have learned as a PI will be gone.πŸ˜³πŸ™€ Sigh.πŸ™„

      • You are going to be back, it is very clear that your memory loss is temporary, that’s why someone is still trying to kill you, guess we need to wait to find who that killer is 🧐

      • I think it must be someone we know, why else would they want to kill me?😲 So it must be someone from one of our past cases. But who?πŸ€”πŸ˜³ Gisela seems like the best choice, but I’m not sure. Not having my memory is really making things tough.😬 I need to talk with the cats alone.🀫😺😺

      • Yes, that is a problem for sure.πŸ™„ And it might not be any of them,😬 though I think it has to be one of them😾 since no one new should hate us so much that they would want to kill us. Unless…πŸ€”πŸ™€
