The Investigators, Inc. The Major Case. Chapter 11. Finding and Fighting.

What Sky did not know was that Kristina, Storm and I did not make it to the island. Kristina and Storm had gone back to look for me. Kristina was getting worried about Storm, it was a long time for him to be underwater, and he only has a limited amount of oxygen, which would likely be running out very soon. She was right, Storm already knew that the oxygen was getting low and he would have to surface very soon.

They had gone back about a mile but still did not see me, which likely meant I had gone off course and could be a long way from the original route. The only way to find me then would be by boat. Storm signaled to Kristina that he needed to surface, so she went with him and took off his apparatus so he could breathe properly.

Meowr!=Human Steve over there! Kristina looked where he was pointing and there I was, floating face down on the surface. She swam over to where I was and turned me over. I was unconscious. Storm climbed on top of me and checked my heart, it had stopped. “Jump on his chest Storm!” she yelled. She tried to get me breathing while Storm stood up on his hind feet and thumped down on my chest with his front feet right over my heart.

Meanwhile…Crystal and Angel knew they needed to tell Sky about Steve, so Crystal sent her a text. Sky looked at it and almost began to cry, but she held back. She told the Major she had to leave. “There is a problem,” he said, “I can tell. What is it?” “It is not about Macey,” she said, “but Steve, Kristina and Storm are not with Crystal and Angel, they went missing.” She tried hard to keep her voice normal.

“Crystal and Angel will get Macey before you have to make the drop,” she added, “they are good, they will not fail at this point.” “I never doubted that,” said Major, “your whole team is good, and I trusted you right from the beginning. Go do what is needed.” Sky decided to stay, but she called Rock and told him what he should do. Rock was a bit puzzled, it was not what he expected Sky to tell him.

Back to Crystal and Angel. They began looking for the entrance to the cave and found it on the opposite side to where the boat was hidden. The entrance was quite large, which was good, it made it easier for them. They were not sure what to expect, but ventured inside, cautiously. They could see some light up ahead so they went in that direction. There was a small side cave to the left where the light came from, but it was empty.

Then they heard some noises from deeper in the cave. They went further and off to the right. They saw more light a little further where the noise was coming from. It was another little “room” where Macey was tied up and Juan was assaulting her. He turned when he heard them come in and stood up, getting out his gun.

The girls were so angry at that point and they went into action. Angel kicked Juan in the stomach which caused him to bend over, then Crystal kicked him in the head…hard! He fell against the wall of the cave, then slid to the floor, dead. You do not want to get Crystal angry. Just one kick from her is all that is needed to stop someone, permanently.

They quickly untied Macey, telling her that her Dad sent them to get her free. They decided to leave right away, before Sam got back. They just made it outside the cave, only to see Rich standing there with his gun pointed at them. “Pete was right,” he said angrily, “that Major just cannot be trusted. Now he will have to be satisfied with a dead daughter returned to him.”

He pointed his gun and fired, but Angel managed to get in front of Macey in time to stop the bullet and down she fell. Just then a booming voice called out to Rich telling him to drop his gun. Rock, Benson, Carine and Tracy were in a boat just off shore. Rich turned to shoot, but Benson shot first, killing Rich instantly.

While this happened, no one noticed that Sam and his girl had arrived. He shot over at Crystal and Macey, but missed. Then he turned, pulling his girl in front of him for a shield and fired on the boat, hitting Carine and she fell backward into the water. Tracy dove in to get her. Rock and Benson could not shoot, fearing that they might kill the girl. She was pleading for them not to shoot her. Then she elbowed Sam in the stomach and pulled away. Benson shot immediately, killing Sam…

To Be Continued.

  1. Well…. they’ve found her! But now two of the team members have been shot and likely killed! Poor Storm, what will he do without Angel to take care of him? And what about you? This went badly very badly!!πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜³

    • Yes, we got Macey out now so she is free again. Yep, Angel was very close when she was shot by Rich, not likely she could survive that. And poor Carine… This was going so good until now, no one getting hurt, but I guess it was too much to expect things would continue that way.πŸ˜²πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • My team works fast in emergencies! But there is still Pete to take care of too. But help is on the way. As for medical help, well, I’m afraid that is, well…too late? Sky was notified though so she could tell the Major his daughter would soon be back. Now to catch Pete to finish this little case. Then to look for us lost at sea!πŸ˜²πŸ‘©πŸ™€πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • We will be handing Pete over to the Major, but only we know what he looks like. Just a minor technicality picking him up and giving him to the Major. I am sure he would like to talk with Pete.πŸ€”πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • They found that out when Milt was pleading with Carver not to kill him. There was only one other man that had been feeding info to Milt. He joined that other guy watching the little fishes in the sea. You know, the guy that had told Milt that Major had hired us to work on this case. Pete doesn’t know anything about that, Milt was careful not to tell him too much.πŸ€”πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Yes, I am quite sure that Pete will not enjoy his time with the Major. That’s what happens when little boys play with the big boys. They tend to get hurt.πŸ€”πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

    • Yes, it was quite a chapter, we didn’t think it would be quite like this! Angel and Carine are definitely in a bad way, if they survive at all. Now they just need to find Kristina, Storm and myself. It would appear I ended up way off course!πŸ˜²πŸ™€πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Yes, it did. But I am sure things will work out. You said Macey was most important and she has survived. Hopefully, she and the Major will be reunited soon.

      • Yes, we will find out in tomorrow’s chapter how things worked out. I just hope we don’t lose Macey now. I can see troubles still coming along!πŸ˜²πŸ™€πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Yes, but there are more of our team around to help out. I think Pete has a few friends around yet at as well. I just hope we can get Angel and Carine to a hospital in time!

    • Yes, Macey is safe so far, but we don’t have her back quite yet! I am sure that Pete has more surprises for us. Angel and Carine are in a bad way, can they possibly survive? Or are they dead already? Yes, it seems I drifted far off course, now the team needs to find the 3 of us too! I think perhaps more troubles await us.πŸ˜²πŸ‘©πŸ™€πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
