The Investigators, Inc. The Year End Case. Chapter 5. The Bait.

“We will use that woman Kristina captured at the chateau,” said Mandar, “we will get nothing important from her anyway.” “Is that wise?” asked Kristina. “Well, it is the best thing at the moment,” he replied, “tomorrow we will let her go and hopefully she will lead us to Lavina.” “We can put a transmitter on her,” said Sky. “Yes, that will be good,” said Mandar, “and one of my men has already “fixed” her phone.

She will likely call Lavina and that just might be enough to tell us where she is. But we will need to get that phone back quickly before Lavina’s people get it. I rather think that Lavina just might have the woman killed, but we will be waiting close by, in case she tries that. Now, we all need some sleep.” Right then Chung came out. “I have something here for all of you, to help relax you,” he said. “Must we?” asked Sky.

“Yes, you listen to your doctor, you need sleep,” said Chung. “He is right dear ladies, we must stay alert to fight Lavina,” said Mandar. So off they all went to bed and Mandar had his men all around that clinic, outside and inside. He also had his men wearing clothes in the same color as Baldwin’s security people, though without the insignia, but it should be enough so Lavina will not discover that Mandar is helping us.

Remember that Avina was married to Mandar, though Lavina is not his daughter. But he knows her well. Soon MC and Storm were waking the girls by patting their noses with their paws. Muffin was still sleeping with me, the kittens curled up beside her. “Okay, I think we are awake now,” said Kristina. “Yep, that goes for me too,” said Sky. The girls quickly jumped out of bed when they saw it was already 10am.

They were soon in the kitchen where Mandar had just sat down for his breakfast of pancakes and bacon. He had brought his own cook along too. “You let us sleep rather late,” said Sky. “Oh, not at all,” he said, “Lavina does not rise early, she is like her mother that way. Letting that woman go around noon will be soon enough.” MC went to get Muffin and the kittens to come for breakfast as well. Everyone ate heartily, feeling better after getting that much needed sleep.

Then they went to make some plans. “Now, my men will take that woman into town and let her go,” said Mandar, “then they will leave. But you and Kristina, plus 2 of my men, will get there first and park down the street. You will take one of our rental cars so it will not be recognized. That is why I kept them parked at the rear of the clinic, out of sight.

We also need to remember something, Lavina cannot be detained, that will not stop her, even in prison she can work, if she makes it that far. Like her mother, she must be stopped, permanently. Do you understand that?” “Yes,” said Sky, “Kristina and I were talking about that and we agree with you.” Sky, Kristina, Gerald and Stewart went on ahead as planned and parked down the street.

Soon the other car came along and let the woman go free, then they turned around and left. Kristina could see easily that the woman was using her phone. “Lavina, we had some problems, the other 2 girls are dead,” she said. “Why did they let you go?” asked Lavina. “They knew that they could not get anything from me, though they sure tried,” she said. “Well, just wait on the street,” said Lavina, “I will have my men pick you up.”

Soon a car came along heading toward the woman. Sky started driving slowly up the street. The other car stopped and 2 men jumped out and shot the woman. Sky was driving fast now and came to a screeching stop behind the other car. Gerald and Stewart jumped out and began shooting with their automatic weapons, killing the two men outside and the driver of the car. Stewart ran and picked up the phone and soon they were driving at top speed back to the clinic.

“Give the phone to Chuck,” said Mandar, “he will check it out.” A little while later he came to Mandar. “She is in Paris, at this hotel,” said Chuck. “Very good, we must move fast now,” said Mandar. “I am ready,” said Sky. “No my dear Sky, you will not come this time,” said Mandar, “Steve needs you very much right now, he needs to know you are okay and with him. That will make him fight harder.

That is more important than coming along. Kristina will come though, and Storm too, he can be a big help to us.” Meow,meow.=Snow just tell me that Rock and Annelie go to some place called Dizzy Moons in Iwah. “She means Iowa, and that would be Des Moines,” said Sky excitedly. Mandar called Phillip and told him.

“Only one name like that in Des Moines,” he said. “Good, try it until someone answers,” said Mandar, “then switch the call to Sky.” Then Mandar, Kristina, Storm and several of the men went on their way to Paris. Sky wanted to go, but she knew Mandar was right and she came into the room with me.

To Be Continued.

  1. So you think that Chung is okay ? You put a lot of faith in him and yet…hmmm…I still think there is something not quite right with him…πŸ€”πŸ˜³. Is he married ? Just want to be sure that all is well with your outfit ! 😬. Please be aware of your surroundings ! πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ™‚πŸ™„πŸ˜»

    • I am not aware of anything at the moment. Chung is a faithful team member, he has never done anything to make us think otherwise. No, he is not married, his wife died years ago, quite young. There are no problems with any of the team, the problem is with Lavina. Fortunately Mandar is here to help, or likely none of us would be alive right now. His doctor has been a great help too. Now, can they catch Lavina in time? πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ


  2. Lavina does not have the advantage. Surprise and her thinking she is on top of it will be her demise. Too many have died, or been seriously injured because of her criminal behavior.

    • Yes indeed, but can Mandar and the others get to her before she leaves that hotel in Paris? If she leaves, will they be able to find her? Like her mother, she does not like to stay in one place too long. Mandar knows this so is in a hurry. Yes, she must be stopped before anymore get killed.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
