The Investigators, Inc. The Secret Estate Case. Chapter 2. Bad Place.

Sky and the cats looked around for a way to open that door. Meow.=Look like button thing on wall light. Sky looked. “You are right MC,” she said, “I do not know how I missed that. Storm, you have the longest legs, so come here.” She held him as high as she could, but it was not quite high enough. So she jumped, and Storm was able to push the button opening the door.

They all went inside, slightly against the rules, but Sky is rather curious at times, and so are the cats. It was not a large room, but through those mirrors on each side, she could see the whole of the bedrooms. “I wonder how many guests he had in here,” said Sky, “and if they were allowed to leave.” There was a loose board on the end wall and when Sky moved it a small door opened revealing a wall safe. “Okay MC,” she said, “let us see if you can open this one.”

Muffin secretly pressed her microphone. Soon we all appeared at this little room. “How did you find me?” she asked. “Just a wild guess,” I said, “you should have called for support anyway.” “Yes, I know, but sometimes I just kind of keep moving ahead when I find something,” she acknowledged, “but I did find another safe.” Meow.=Talk so much, not able to hear, you finished now? “Yes MC,” I said.

He did get it open after a couple of tries. But it was empty, like the larger safe downstairs. “That does not make sense,” I said. I started tapping the sides of the safe. Aha, the side wall under the shelf sounded hollow. It was a simple sliding door and inside was a small envelope. “Rats, that is not very exciting,” said Sky. However, it was exciting. Inside were papers with a picture of an estate, plus floor plans of the rather large house. “Now, if only we knew where this place is located,” said Sky.

“Austria,” said Astrid, “I went to this place over here to ski a couple of times.” “You recognize that from the picture?” I asked. “Certainly, this mountain is a well known place,” she said, “very easy to recognize.” “What are these red spots on the floor plan?” asked Sky. “Most likely locations of safes,” said Tracy. “Okay, Tracy and Kristina, I want you both to memorize as much as you can from these papers and that photo,” I said, “just in case we lose these papers somehow.

I have a feeling that perhaps more people than Marven might want to look for the jewels that M had stolen over the years. And whoever broke in here likely found some papers mentioning exactly where that estate is located. So he has a big head start, therefore we need to work a little faster.” And that is something we did. We immediately flew to the closest airport to where we wanted to go. Macey and Marlene met us there.

I had called and asked them to join us, we just might need some extra help, and Marlene is one of our nurses, so it might be a good thing to have her along. That still left enough behind to look after each other. Soon Rock, Sky, Astrid, Tracy, Kristina and myself were in a helicopter looking for that estate. It really did not take long to find it and there was a pad to land the helicopter. That was good since there was no road into that estate.

I just hope this place belonged to M, or we could be in trouble for trespassing. Rock dropped us off and went back for the others. We also had Muffin and MC with us, but Storm wanted to stay with Angel. The house, which was very large, was locked, not a problem for us, but we looked around outside until the others arrived. If anyone else is out here they must have been dropped off by helicopter. Our helicopter belongs to Mandar, so we can keep it here.

Although the place looks deserted, I had an uneasy feeling that we were not alone. I told everyone to stay alert, just in case. Sky, the cats, and I wandered off to look at some small buildings behind the main house. Meow,meow.=Me think danger somewhere near in house. Have strange feeling, not good, something very bad. Meow.=Yep, me too have danger feeling. It bad danger, not good place to be.

To Be Continued.

    • An exploding house? That would be terrible, just when we find the place. I sure hope not. But sometimes the cats exaggerate a little. Usually they are right though. But it could mean anything really. Perhaps an ambush waiting for us, something like that. I would not doubt that someone is here, so we need to be very careful and listen to our cats.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ˜πŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ


      • Yes, I do listen to them and we will be on alert to what happens around us. I do get the feeling that someone is watching us, yet I don’t see anyone.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ˜πŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ


      • Are there any tree lines nearby??πŸ€”πŸ€” they could be watching from there… or maybe with a drone?? You need to be on the watch for them things!!😲😲😲

      • Yes, drones can fly quite high and still watch amazingly good! Yes, there are trees all around this estate, sort of carved out of the forest. A very lonely and hard to find location.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ˜πŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ


    • Yes, I do get the feeling of being watched even though I cannot see anyone. Perhaps someone is watching from the trees that surround this estate, or from inside the house itself. This is a very remote type location. We could be watched by a drone too. This is off to a bad start.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ˜πŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

  2. 😼😼 The cats have announced to you that there is danger ahead. Finding out what the danger is will keep you busy ! I think…πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©β€πŸ¦±πŸ‘©β€πŸ¦°πŸ‘©β€πŸ¦° proceed with caution ! πŸ€”πŸ˜―

    • Yes, we will proceed with caution for sure. I trust those cats when they say there is something bad or danger, then they are normally correct. Someone perhaps got here ahead of us but has not yet found the jewels. But they would know we are here after seeing our helicopter landing. They have the advantage at the moment, we have to change that if we can.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ˜πŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
