The Investigators, Inc. Bernard’s Secret. Chapter 5.

“Then there was a ghost, at the top of the stairs,” I continued, “she was holding Muffin who was limp, she looked dead. Then the ghost laid Muffin down and disappeared through the wall.” Meow,meow.=Yep, I faint when see ghost up close. But ghost walk through door, we find afterward, just look like she go through wall. “Then, up on the third floor was what looked like it’s own suite,” I said, just staring ahead, “and a book, an interesting book, in it…”

Then Carine grabbed me and pushed me to the floor and she laid on top of me, just as several bullets came flying through the open window. “On the side of the hill, I see a man with gun,” said Carine. Baldwin sent some of his men up there to check. They found a man and brought him back without a fight. The man stared straight ahead, much like I had been doing. He never answered any questions. Just sat and stared. Baldwin’s men then took him away, but before they got to the car, the man grabbed a gun from one of the men and shot himself. There was no evidence he was from that gang, and Carine did not think he was either.

“It is not the way they do things,” said Carine, “they want victims to know who they are.” “Now we have another mystery to deal with,” said Kat, “who is this guy working for and why?” Just then Baldwin’s new secretary, Candace, came with our new nurse who will be working at the clinic. “My name is Kara Sommer,” she said, “I hope to be your new nurse, if I am accepted.” Since one of her first tasks would be helping to look after me right now, Kat had to give the okay to her. We already knew all about her and Kat said that she was definitely accepted.

She would be working at the clinic mostly, helping Chung and Dr. Hunter as well as looking after any of our team that might end up there from time to time. Unfortunately all this sudden activity made me forget the rest of my dream completely. I knew there was more to it, but I could remember nothing right now. “Perhaps it will come back to me later,” I said. “And you were just getting to the interesting part about that book,” said Jennifer. Kara was from Switzerland, was well trained in fighting and in handling different guns.

“Welcome to the team,” said Annelie and the others. Kat said we need to go back to that old house and maybe I will remember more about the place and why I keep dreaming about it. Oddly I never dream about my last encounter at the house with John and trading myself for Jennifer. It all had to do with our very first case. But why was that? The case was over apparently, but it seems there must have been something more. Perhaps it has something to do with that book I was reading. But it may not either.

Baldwin was now outside talking with his men about the guy who shot himself. Then there was the sound of a helicopter getting closer. Everyone figured it was one of Baldwin’s helicopters. Meow!=Chop chop not Baldwin’s! It come very low. The girls grabbed their guns and went outside to warn Baldwin. He had already taken refuge in his car as the helicopter flew low overhead. There were several explosions outside and the helicopter flew off with everyone shooting at it. But it escaped over the trees and disappeared. Twice in one day, and so close together…what does it mean?

Four smaller bombs had been dropped, but no one was hurt, however the car that Candace and Kara came in was destroyed. Kara looked. “My clothes!”, she exclaimed. Kat smiled, “don’t worry, we will buy more for you.” Kara laughed, “I guess it was kind of silly to say anything. At least no one was hurt, that is most important.” Kara would be living at the chateau, as would Candace now. Good thing this place has so many bedrooms. But somehow I feel like an outsider here. I do not know who I am. I have no past and yet I do. I am married to Kat, yet I do not know her. I feel so bad, maybe I should not even be here.

But maybe that old house will hold a clue that will bring my past back to the present. The next day all the girls were out on the lawn practicing their fighting techniques. Rock and I are watching from indoors. After a bit Annelie comes in to get something to drink. Suddenly I get that pain in my head again and start to yell and fall to my knees. Annelie came running and began massaging my neck like Carine does when this happens. “Get Carine and Kara,” she said to Rock. Off he went. Suddenly I turn, grab Annelie’s arm and throw her over my shoulder. As she tries to get up I give her a hard kick to the head, knocking her out. I spotted a gun on the table, picked it up and pointed it at my head. Meow,meow!=EEEEEEEK! “Thwock!”, MC got me and knocked me to the floor…

To Be Continued.

  1. See… you should never play with guns!! They are dangerous!!🀨 It seems to me there is some kind of hypnotism going on here along with the drug they gave you!! You need to see a psychiatrist! Maybe along with Chungs medicine they can unblock your head! (OK your memory then)🀭 Good episode!!

    • Yes, it almost does look like hypnotism for sure. At least with the guy who shot at us. And perhaps me too. But who are these new players? And who are they after? Me? Or Baldwin? Or is it just a general “get them all” kind of thing. But using a helicopter to drop bombs on us is getting serious. Notice the addition of a couple new players on our side?πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ‘©πŸ˜πŸ™‚πŸ˜ŠπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈGetting to be a long list!


      • I know!! Two more Ladies.. pretty soon they’ll make a TV show or movie called Steve’s Angels πŸ˜‡. I think it was still John trying to make sure you don’t get help getting your memory back. πŸ˜‰

      • We probably won’t see much of the 2 new women, but who knows, maybe they will play bigger roles in the future. Hmm, but how would John know what is going on? How would he know I’m back home even?πŸ€”πŸ˜³


      • But how would John know about them? He would have to know I’m with Carine and he would have to know she had been a member of that gang. Somehow that doesn’t sound likely. πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ€―πŸ€―πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ


      • Alright then Mr.PI with no memory… why and who would want to drop bombs from a helicopter at your chateau??πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ€¨

      • It’s Bernard’s secret. And that’s a good question. Perhaps it is not related at all. Perhaps it is related.🀯🀯


      • You get me all turned around with your stories.. first you’re married to Jenny but not really because you’re really married to Kat except when Jenny is being Kat and Kat is being Jenny and you’re Steve to Bakdwin and his team your team except that you may or may not be married to Carine but only pretending so you can get documentation to work so you be came Bernard but only when you’re in the story and not really being Steve or Bernard or married or not married which you’re not I think but you are when you’re in the story.. did I get all of that right??πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺπŸ™„πŸ€―

      • Just to clarify a bit. I was actually married to Jennifer before I was married to Kat. But that marriage…let’s skip that part for now…so now I’m married to Kat but I’m married to Jennifer when she is playing Kat because she is Kat except when Kat is Kat which is when I’m married to Kat and not Jennifer because Jennifer and I are not married anymore.


  2. Things are happening so quickly ! Good thing MC came to the rescue ! Wow ! I do not know about your doctors…hmmm…I would be on guard…but then you do not know yourself ! Yet…πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©

    • Yep, MC acted fast! The doctors are good, but the drugs were in me for so long, as Carine said, too long to change them. But hopefully she’s wrong about that. We’ll see. Now, who is after us? Are they after me or Baldwin? More and more questions!πŸ€”πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ‘©πŸ˜πŸ™‚πŸ˜ŠπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
