The Investigators, Inc. The Search. Chapter 11.

I look around, the other Baldwin is standing at the bottom of the stairs now. “It’s up to you to get this finished Steve,” he said, “make sure John gets what he deserves. And make him talk.” “I will do that Baldwin,” I said. Then I remembered that one of John’s men had taken that first guard’s gun to hide it somewhere so it would look like Kat shot an unarmed man. And I’m sure he probably called the police by now. But what can we do? Try to run somewhere and hide out for a while? That wouldn’t help, it would just make us look guilty.

But if we stay here, we will be arrested for sure. Hmm, neither choice is a good one, there has to be something better to do. Right then we could hear the sirens coming up from the gate. “Now what?”, asked Kat. “We fight our way out,” I said, “we can’t let them catch us.” “Are you crazy Steve?”, she said, “we can’t fight the police!” “There’s no other way right now,” I said, “so don’t argue, just get ready.” “One of you on this side of the entry, the other on that side,” said Baldwin, and he disappeared.

We got in position, Muffin was with me and M.C. went with Kat. Finally the police came rushing into the large entry. “Watch out!”, yelled John, “they’re going to shoot you!” The police turned around and looked, but they could see no one. “Who is going to shoot us?”, asked the senior officer. “They are, those PI’s,” said John, but as he looked, he also could not see us anymore. He was very perplexed now. “Look,” he said, “my name is John Chandler, I’m a PI too and I’m trying to stop them from taking over the world.” “I thought you were Baldwin, you look like him,” said the senior officer.

“No, no, I’m just posing as Baldwin to stop him and these PI’s from their diabolical scheme to rule the world,” said John, “Baldwin’s sister killed him with poison, she worked for me, I had to do it to stop Baldwin. And I hired a man to shoot Steve’s wife Kat. They are both dead.” Then Kat and I come walking down the stairs and into the room. “I’m Steve,” I said, “and this is my wife Kat.” “No, no!”, yelled John, “that’s not his wife, his wife is dead, that’s his wife’s twin, they are identical twins!” “Oh,” said the officer, “so you are the twin sister of Steve’s wife?”

“No,” said Kat, “we are not related at all.” “Yes, that’s right,” said John, “they are not related, they are just identical twins, but their eyes are different colors, Baldwin’s sister Calanthe told me that’s how to tell them apart.” “And this Calanthe worked for you, the one you hired to kill Baldwin?”, asked the officer. “Yes,” said John, “that’s right, and I know that Baldwin and Kat are dead, I had the graves dug up and we checked the bodies to make sure, and the Kat in the grave wasn’t wearing contacts, so I know it was the real Kat, this woman is a fake, the identical twin to Kat.”

“Oh,” said the officer, “let me get this straight now. You hired a woman to kill Baldwin, and hired a man to kill Kat, the wife of this man here. And this is the identical twin of his wife, but they are not related. Plus you illegally opened graves and touched the dead bodies to make sure the people were really dead.” “Yes, yes,” said John, “I had to do it to stop these people, don’t you see?” “Oh yes,” said the officer, “I understand now.” “And be careful, watch his cats, they must be here somewhere, they are very dangerous,” said John, “they use slingshots and shoot people with muffins that kill.”

“Oh, I see,” said the officer, “now we have cats that can use slingshots and kill people with muffins. Uh, what kind of muffins, whole wheat, bran, maybe chocolate chip?” “Are you crazy?”, yelled John, “I’m always surrounded with idiots! And his cats also talk, so they are probably listening to us right now, they understand human language and can speak several languages too.” “Oh my,” said the officer, “they do sound very dangerous. I will make sure my men look for them right away.”

“Just look around here,” said John, “I was shot with a muffin, it hit me on my back and now I can’t move. They are hard like a rock those muffins, they kill people with them.” “Oh, that’s not good,” said the officer, “those must be very stale muffins to be so hard like that.” “You are an idiot!”, yelled John, “you’re all idiots! I’m telling you how it is, now go find those cats, you’ll understand then. Wait, there they are now, check their backpacks, look at their slingshots, you’ll see!”

    • But it could be an act to escape prison and go to a psychiatric facility where he can go along with the doctors and be a free man much sooner than if he went to prison. Or perhaps all that pain is really getting to him and causing him to talk without thinking. Just never know with John. He never seems to stay in prison long.

    • Yes, perhaps all that pain is making John talk without thinking. Or…maybe it’s a deliberate act to stay out of prison. He could instead land in a psychiatric facility where he could play along with the doctors and get “healed” of his problems and be a free man much sooner than if he goes to prison. I’m thinking that’s more likely, John never seems to stay in prison long, he’s always getting out early.
      As John said, he dug up the graves and proved that Baldwin and Kat were dead. How could they survive so long in those caskets if they were alive?๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ‘ฑโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

        They could both have had an oxygen bottle! And Baldwin has enough employee’s to dig him and Kat up after John checked the Graves. Ah who am I kidding?? Baldwin and Kat are gone. It’s a projection that he used in his house.

      • But the oxygen would have been noticed, and besides that would mean they were breathing, which would also be noticed.
        But how could someone use a hologram like that? It was talking like Baldwin was actually there, and yet he wasn’t. Very strange.๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€

      • But how could it be a recording when no one knew what was going to happen? Something that bothers me is, how did John and his men get inside? We needed a picture of the key and the combination to get in. How could John get the combination when it was split between 3 people? Only Baldwin knew the whole combination, and he had it memorized, he never trusted things being copied down.

      • Exactly! He is trying to look crazy so he can make a plea of insanity and not be held accountable for his actions. He gets sent to a psychiatric hospital where after a year or two he is “cured” and he’s back causing problems for us again. I don’t trust him at all. I think the only thing that will stop John eventually is a bullet…or maybe a stale muffin.๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿง๐Ÿง๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿน๐Ÿน๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฃ

  2. For some reason I thought Annelie was dead….I am really mixed up…could be Rossana is a person of interest…as I said before , there is something really wrong ! Waiting for tomorrowโ€™s chapter…๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿค”

    • Annelie managed to survive one of Kat’s deadly kicks, possibly because she was such a good friend of Kat, so Kat might not have been able to kick her hard. But Annelie appears to be working with someone we don’t know yet. Rossana never works with us on cases except to be our go to person for anything police related, never a problem with her. Yes, something is wrong still, but what is it?๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ‘ฑโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ
