The Investigators, Inc. The Year End Case. Chapter 7. Explosions.

Mandar and the others were soon in Munich and heading to the hotel where Lavina would be staying. But as they got close to the hotel, Mandar told his driver to stop, so he pulled over. “What is wrong?” asked Kristina. “That is not a hotel Lavina would be staying at,” he said, “keep driving to the next hotel.” The went further down the street. “There, that is her hotel,” said Mandar.

They stopped along the street, but not in front of the hotel. Mandar phoned the other two cars and told them he would go behind the hotel, one of them to park in front and go inside to open the back door for him. The other car would go park in the side parking lot and go in the front door, but stay close to the building so they cannot be seen from above. The plan was put into motion.

The first men went inside and opened the back door, which was locked to outside entrance, but could be opened from the inside. The other men came in and sat in the lounge area to wait for Lavina and her friends. Mandar went to the front to ask which was Lavina’s room. “I am sorry sir,” he said, “but I cannot give out that information.”

Mandar handed the man quite a lot of money and soon they were on their way upstairs to the eighth floor, room 832. Mandar had been given the entry card and in he went to wait for Lavina. He ordered some food for everyone since they had not eaten since breakfast. Kristina was almost too excited to eat. Storm was downstairs with the men in the lounge area, eating his food with them. He too was waiting excitedly for Lavina to show up. She was to arrive before 9pm.

Meanwhile, back at the clinic… Lavina was watching the clinic and had a small device with a button on it. “Are you sure there was enough explosives?” she asked a woman. “Oh yes,” she answered, “and we got it done while they were having their Christmas dinner, so no one was around at all.” “Very good,” laughed Lavina, “now Steve, we will see if you can live through this.” But then a car drove up to the clinic so Lavina held off briefly to see who it was.

“Him!” she said, “he has more lives than a cat! But we will see if he can live through this.” Walter got out of the car, but Crandall called to him. “Someone is watching us on that far hill,” he said, “I saw the sun shine off some glass, probably a telescope.” “Drive ahead to those trees,” said Walter, “I will send some men to you, go get whoever is over there. And do not be nice about it.”

“Done,” said Crandall and off he drove and stopped behind the trees. Walter went inside and told Sky, who then told 4 men to go with Crandall and be prepared to fight. They went and jumped in the car and off they drove. Then could not be seen leaving from that spot on the hill. Crandall knew how to get there quickly, but would he be quick enough. Lavina smiled and pressed the button. The clinic was destroyed in a huge explosion! Lavina then left quickly, leaving others to destroy the chateau. Fortunately she did not know about the new chateau, only the old one. Another woman pressed a button she had and the chateau was completely destroyed in another huge explosion!

Now, back to Mandar and his group… “Do you think she will be on time, or late?” asked Kristina. “I know Lavina, she is meticulous to a fault in everything she does,” replied Mandar, “she prides herself at being punctual. She will not be late.” Mandar even had time for a short nap. Kristina laid down on the bed, but she could not even close her eyes, she was just too excited.

Mandar was on the other bed and was very quickly asleep. Storm had studied the picture of Lavina and knew right away when she came in with 3 other women. Mandar’s men were dressed in ordinary clothes so they would not be noticed. Storm went over to Lavina and rubbed against her legs. One of the women was about to kick Storm away from Lavina. “No,” she said sternly, “he is just beautiful.”

The man at the front desk said he did not know who he belonged too, but because it was raining, he let him stay inside. “If someone comes looking for him,” said Lavina, “you have not seen him.” She then handed some money to the man. Storm began purring for Lavina, even though he hated the thought, but he knew his job and did it. Lavina opened the door of her room, which was dark and one of the women turned the light on. “Mandar!!” gasped Lavina…

  1. Well Mandar knows Lavina to a fault! Let’s hope he can end her life of pain and misery to others! But what about you and the others in the clinic??๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ I hope that safe room was bomb proof or you could be a bunch of dust!๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  2. Lavina did not win. I think all of you were at the new chateau and safe. She is not coming to a good end. Blowing up your chateau will get expensive because Baldwin already rebuilt it.

    • Well, all that were here were at the clinic, but did we get the safe room sealed off in time? If not, we are in big trouble. No one was at the chateau however and I doubt that Baldwin will want to rebuild it now that we have the other one. I think Sky and I will have to postpone our wedding though, providing we are still alive. Surly I won’t lose Sky this year too!๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

      • Oh my! That sounds like my life, and I can relate to them very much! Mine and Shawnโ€™s wedding was pushed back three times because of Covid ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I hope they can get married soon like we did!

      • Oh my, that’s terrible! Glad you finally made it! I am sure they will get married, eventually, as long as Steve doesn’t get cold feet now. I think he is getting a bit nervous.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

      • My advice for him would be: if you love them and can see yourself spending your life with them, then what are you waiting for? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Iโ€™m glad we made it as well!

      • Yep, I think he will come around, once they fully recover from their injuries. Lavina had killed his wife Kat, then his fiance, so that might be a reason for him to be cautious, right or wrong. Sky isn’t afraid though, she has already been through a lot and is quite a fearless young lady in many respects.๐Ÿ‘ฉ

  3. As a short story writer, reading this short story left me feeling a mix of emotions. On one hand, I was on the edge of my seat with the tension and excitement of the plan being put into action and the anticipation of Lavina’s arrival. On the other hand, the betrayal and deceit in the story left me feeling uneasy and disturbed. Overall, this was a thrilling and suspenseful read that kept me engaged until the very end.

    • Thank you so much Sebastian! I am glad you enjoyed the story thus far. Yes, Lavina was quite the woman, filled with hate and a desire to hurt as many people as she could, following in her mother’s footsteps. The only one who could stop her was her step father, Mandar. We had tried and failed more than once, now she tried to destroy us completely while our team was spread out for the holidays. Just 2 more chapter to discover the end!๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ
