The Investigators, Inc. Mystery Of The Beginning. Chapter 9.

Kat picks up Muffin. “Hey kitten,” she says, “you can’t give up, we need to find Steve and stop John once and for all. I need you to help me find Steve.” Meow,meow!=Yep, you right! Me not give up, we go find my human and stop John for sure! “That’s my girl,” said Kat, “the fury of the Kat, and the cats!” Meow,meow!=Yep, and the cats! Meow!=Me too, and the cats! Just then another car drives up, this time it’s Baldwin and Rock, plus 3 of Baldwin’s men. Annelie is checking Jennifer to see if she has any broken bones, or worse. “Good thing you’re almost a doctor,” said Baldwin, “how is she?”

“She will be fine, but we need to get her to the hospital,” said Annelie. “I will take her in my car,” said Baldwin, “it will be faster than waiting for an ambulance to get out here.” Rock carried her to the car. “Kristina, you are now glued to Jenny,” said Kat, “you do not leave her and no one goes into her room unless Baldwin says it is okay. Anyone else tries to get in, you stop them.” “Okay, I understand,” answered Kristina as she got into the car. “I will leave Rock and 1 man for you Kat,” said Baldwin, and then he drove off.

The others got in their car and drove to the house. It looked deserted, and likely was, but they had to check anyway. “I can’t get any signal at all,” said Annelie, very concerned about that problem. “I thought that was supposed to work anywhere?”, asked Kat. “It is supposed to,” answered Annelie, “unless Steve hasn’t had the opportunity to start the device.” “I don’t want to think about that,” said Kat, “keep trying while we go take a look.” The rest of them went in the house and searched all over, but they found no one and no clues either. Finally they decide to leave but as they got outside Muffin remembered something.

Meow,meow!=Me remember, there is secret passage, one we not check yet. Must start upstairs in third house. What she meant was the third floor of the house which was a separate apartment. It had a secret stairway that led to each floor and to the basement. That is how our “ghost” managed to get around so easily without being seen. Rock went in first and they followed the stairs and little passages around all the way to the basement. Meow,meow.=In there is little kitchen room. It looked just like a wall and they could not find a way to open it.

“Are you sure this is it Muffin?”, asked Rock. Meow,meow=Yep, me sure, push on wall. Rock just pushed with all his might and smashed the door right off it’s big hinges. He looked around the room with his flashlight, then pulled the chain that turned on the light in the middle of the room. “Look Kat,” he said, and pointed to a corner of the room. A young woman was curled up in terror, she had been beaten, tied up and left to die there. “Carry her out of there Rock, bring her upstairs,” said Kat. He did so, and once upstairs he untied her and put her on a chair.

The woman was crying and kept saying, “please, please, don’t hurt me anymore.” “We don’t want to hurt you, now here’s the deal,” said Kat, “you help us and we will help you. Or we can tie you up again and put you back in that room.” “NO, no, please, I will help, anything,” she pleaded. “Okay, we will start with an easy question,” said Kat firmly, “what is your full name?” “Melanie Sunshine Morel,” she said. One of the men went out to the car while Kat started to clean up Melanie a bit. He was soon back with a note for Kat which she read out loud with information about Melanie from the time she was born until now. The woman was amazed.

Then she started crying again, she said it was because of the pain. “We will take her to the hospital too,” said Kat to Rock, “carry her out to the car.” They had her put in the same room with Jennifer so they could watch her more closely. “How do you feel little sis?”, asked Kat. “Terrible,” she said, “but only because I messed up badly. I knew Steve would try to sneak away and I wanted to go along to help protect him. Instead I got him captured.” She really started to cry hard at that point. Muffin and MC jumped on the bed, purring loudly. Meow,meow=It not your fault, you try your best, it that terrible human John. And we going to find him and bring back my human. Both cats hug Jennifer and she stops crying. “Now, back to you Melanie,” said Kat, “where did John take Steve?”

To Be Continued.

    • I can only hope my team is being careful. Baldwin is there to keep things in reason without letting feelings run wild, which is good. I hope Kat can stay focused. I can do nothing right now, except wait. This is a time for my team to work without me, they have all been trained well.πŸ˜³πŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ˜ πŸ™‚πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
