I decided to call Galyna into the room as well and we all talked about this new drug, what might happen if things go wrong and should I even take a chance with it. Galyna reminded me that we have a lot of documentation now showing who I am, that I am married to Kat, pictures with all the team members, everything about our PI business, plus lots of video time with me talking to everyone, birthday parties, where we live, so much to help me know who I am, even if I do not remember who I am.
These things will still help me know that I have a past and present. So everyone left except Kat, Muffin, Chung and Doc, as we all like to call him. Doc told Chung to go around to the other side of the bed to monitor things while he gave me the shot. Kat sat down on a chair, Muffin was on the bed with me. Doc told Muffin to go over with Kat. I said Muffin stays on the bed.
That is when Doc produced a gun and told the others to stand over against the far wall. He did not know that Muffin had an alarm buzzer and she pressed it right away. The others were in the lunch room, except Rock who was standing in the hall. Everyone gets the alarm call from Muffin. “Steve is down!”, screamed Jenny and everyone ran! But Rock pounded the door open and was in so fast.
Doc turned to shoot but Rock had his hand in his own big hand squeezing hard. Then he broke Doc’s arm and smashed him against the wall. He then picked him up and threw him on the floor, hard! At that point the others arrived and dragged Doc out of the room. Doc had just started to give me the shot and Chung removed the needle and ran off to find out what it was.
Dr. Mriya came in to watch me. It did not take Chung long to find out what I had been given and was working on something to counteract it. Meanwhile I drifted into a kind of sleep, though it did not really feel like I was sleeping. I was with Muffin when one day I came to her and said, “Muffin, I know what we need to do, start our own business so we can make some money.”
Meow,meow.=Oh, good idea, this no food diet not good, I getting skinny. “Um, yes, well, I have lost a bit of weight too I guess,” said I. Meow,meow.=You lose more weight and maybe you not be able to stand up. “It is not that bad Muffin,” I said, rolling my eyes, “however, I do have great idea.” Meow,meow.=Hope it better than last one, we almost get arrested breaking into old lady house.
“Um, right, we had the wrong house, that is all,” I said, “but this one is good, we will start our own PI business, you know, solve mysteries, find treasures, that sort of thing. Best of all we get paid for doing it. We will have fun and make money.” Meow,meow.=Oh, me like that idea, if it work, especially money part so we can eat. Not have much furniture left to sell.
“Um, yes, that is true, and sleeping on the floor is kind of hard,” I admitted. Everything went fuzzy, we saw a ghost lady and found gold dishes on our first job. We met a man named John who wanted to kill us. We got locked in the dungeon of some kind of castle on an island. Muffin had a slingshot. We met a woman named Jessica, she was so nice. But she was killed by someone.
I went through a lot of our old cases like that, some were clear, some were mixed up. “Lay on top of Steve,” Mriya said to Muffin, “and purr loud.” She did so right away. MC and Storm lay on either side of me and purred also. I met a woman named Katherina, she vowed to kill me. That went over and over again in my head. I began to get very tense, clenching my fists. I then yelled out loud, “NO! That is not right!”
I was sweating terribly now and opened my eyes. Kat smiled at me. About half and hour had gone by and Chung came in shortly after I woke up and gave me his medicine. Later that day I was feeling much better and the next day I went home. It feels so much better to be at home. And what is this? A letter from a couple in Canada asking us to help them. Sounds like a more relaxing type case this time…
But join us Monday for a whole new case called, The Northern Mystery.
