The Investigators, Inc. The Lost Team Case. Chapter 4. Going, Going, Gone.

John returned to the team at the hotel, but Carver and Ralph continued to follow Toledo to find out where he was going. He just might be working for, or with, someone and just gave false information to John to set the team off chasing in the wrong direction. But he just went to a hotel, and not a very good one at that. They called the Major and he said to wait for a while in case he came out again tonight.

“You will never guess who I met with,” said John. “I would guess it was Toledo,” said Rock, and everyone laughed. “How did you know that?” he asked. “Carver and Ralph saw you leave and tailed you,” said Major. “He is one guy that could do it too,” said John shaking his head, “but I do have some news, and our first real lead hopefully, if he was telling the truth, and I think he was.

Apparently Carnival talked him into investing in his organization, and now he is out of the money. Carnival just told him to forget all about it or his boys would finish him for good. Anyway, he told me about one of Carnival’s boys that delivers drugs to some of the schools in the city, and tomorrow is his day for doing it. Takes place at noon and this is the order he does it tomorrow.” “Good, we will pay him a visit,” said Rock.

“Toledo also informed me that Carnival is back home in Brazil right now,” said John, “in Brasilia in fact. And apparently he just knocked off two of Victor’s men down there.” “Victor did send a couple of men to Brasilia,” said the Major. He then called Victor to let him know. “Victor has put a price on Alberto now,” he continued after the call, “and hired a pro to go after him.”

“Hey, that school is just a junior high school,” said Aasta, “those are just young kids. I want in on this one Rock, please!” “Okay with me,” said Rock, “perhaps you and Tracy can go together on this, to look after any “kids” that might get in the way. Your daughter seems upset over this one.” “That is fine with me,” said the Major, “I like what I see in her.” She smiled, “thanks daddy.” Is the Major getting a change of heart? Always possible.

The team was at the school early, Tracy and Aasta were flirting with a young guy waiting at the street. They look young enough to be one of the school kids. Then a big, black truck pulled up and a guy got out and came over to this young guy the girls were with. “You forgot your lunch again, son,” he said smiling. “Yeah,” he said, “oh, could you mail this letter for me?” “Sure thing son,” he said and tucked it into his pocket.

The boy turned to leave but the girls were right there and Aasta grabbed his lunch which was in a paper bag. “Hey, give that back!” he yelled and went for Aasta. Tracy kicked him in the stomach. “If it is your lunch, I will apologize,” she said. Aasta opened it and found drugs inside. “Some lunch,” she said angrily. “Hey little girls!” said the man, “give that to me!”

But Carver and Ralph suddenly appeared and stopped the man from doing anything. Ralph took the envelope, which was full of money. Tracy took another envelope from the boy which was also full of money. “Business is good today,” she said to him, “how many kids are you planning to kill?” Meanwhile Rock looked in the truck and found the other lunches, also just drugs. “Someone wants to talk to you,” said Carver, and they took the man to the Major in his car.

Two other bigger boys showed up at that moment. “Hey little girls, you want trouble?” said one and they rushed toward the girls. But the girls moved quick and had those boys on their backs groaning with just 3 kicks. They took money from them too, big rolls of it. “You should never try to hurt little girls,” they said to the boys, “you can get hurt that way.” They laughed as they walked away. Meanwhile, back to us… I took Kristina outside to walk around a bit and find out what was bothering her.

It certainly was not what I was expecting. “Ooo, they are hugging,” said Sky, “this must be good!” Sigurbjorn just laughed. “You are some gal,” she said. “I do my best,” she said, laughing also. Later I took Sky outside for a walk and talk. “Do you know what is bothering Kristina?” I asked. “Of course,” she said, “we have talked about it.” “Uh, you could have told me,” I said. “More fun this way,” she said, “I guess being out here has just made it harder for her.”

“Yes, that is it,” I said, “oh, I must tell you, I am having symptoms already, though not too bad yet. So far I have been able to hide it.” “I could tell,” she said, “it is starting early, but perhaps it is all the stress of being here too.” “Yes, I think that may be it,” I said, then stopped and looked into her eyes, “the hardest part is if I forget you.” “Yes, that would be hard for me too,” she said, then started to cry.

“Yes, it would be much harder for you, since I will not remember,” I said, “it is only hard for me now.” The symptoms kept getting worse, quickly and 3 days later the headaches were so bad I thought I was going to die. The next morning I woke up to Sky kissing me. “You slept late Steve, how do you feel?” she asked.

I frowned a bit and looked around. “Are you okay Steve?” she asked again. “Is that my name?” I asked quietly. “Yes it is, do you know who I am?” she asked. “Well, I must know you, but I do not know who you are,” I said. “My name is Sky, I am your wife,” she said smiling. She has such a beautiful, soft voice…

To Be Continued.

  1. Oh no… it’s started already!!😳😲 This isn’t good! I hope that Viktor doesn’t kill Alberto V-05 before they find out where you are!!😬 That dealer may not know anything about where you are!

    • Yes, I am gone already. And something we all knew, if I went to “nowhere” again, that is where I would stay. Carnival would not likely tell where we are anyway, he wants me dead for what we did, just kind of a slow death. The dealer won’t know anything, but he might lead the team to someone else who might know, at least generally, where we are. Maybe if they can find us quickly there will still be time to reverse this.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • It will need to be soon I’m afraid!😱 Although it is good that you only don’t remember who people are sorry far… you haven’t gotten violent or paranoid. That’s a plus!!πŸ˜ƒ

      • Yes, and hopefully it will stay that way. It is reacting a bit differently in that regard than the other times. Although the very first time was also quite quiet.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Yep I remember! You were so lost and confused! You almost didn’t get in the helicopter when they came to rescue you!😲
        You don’t suppose this is the same cabin??😳

      • Yep, and hearing talking cats made me think I had gone crazy! I did not know anything and even with Muffin and MC with me it was not enough to help me remember. But at least I was not violent that time. Each time seemed to react a little differently.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Yep, that is for sure. But unless they find out the exact location of this cabin, it will take them weeks to find us. Hopefully I remain on the calm side so I don’t give the girls much trouble. Oh, the other cabin wasn’t log and it was in Germany. Good thought though.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Well, it would seem we are in Canada or northern US. Likely close to the border. We learned this from the journal that I found. Hard to say exactly though since things were even more remote back then. But there is a large uninhabited area, so even knowing approximately where we are will still mean a long search for the team, but at least they will be searching in the right area. Providing they find out something anyway. Hard to say what is going to happen.πŸ€”πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • It’s time they kick the search into high gear!! I don’t hear them discussing your need for you injections πŸ€” do you think they’ve given it any consideration πŸ€”

      • Yes, they need to get moving a bit faster, but they need to know where to look first. Hopefully they will find out something useful very soon. I have noticed that too, not good. I hope they have my medicine with them, I will need an injection as soon as they find us. I sure hope they have thought about it.πŸ˜²πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Yeah, but our doctors and nurses are all back home. At least one of them should be with the team here. Maybe two, just in case.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Yes indeed. Fortunately he does have others that can help him, such as John and the Major. And he can always call Baldwin if he needs to. Hopefully he will turn to them for help and not just try to do things his own way and not think.πŸ˜²πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

  2. Not again ! 😳 hmmm Why was Sky smiling and why did you mention the soft quiet voice ? πŸ€” It appears that something is wrong , not in a good way either ! 😬😯 Stay alert , even tho’ your mind is now being infected ! πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜»πŸ˜ΊπŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©β€πŸ¦°πŸ‘©β€πŸ¦±β—οΈ

    • Sky is likely smiling to help keep me calm. She knows I can get violent or scared and run off. So she is trying to be nice to prevent that. Sky has a soft quiet voice, perhaps that is something I remembered when I heard her speak. No way I can stay alert now, I know nothing anymore and have no past. Besides, out here our only danger might be wild animals and we haven’t seen any yet.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ


  3. Trust they will make headway in finding you, soon. Going to nowhere is not good. There should be someone that knows about the plane, which would have needed to refuel, somewhere.

    Liked by 1 person

    • Yes, once they find out the direction we were taken, they might be able to follow the plane’s flight, at least somewhat. Yes, now that I’m nowhere, will I ever come back? The doctors before had warned me I would not. However, there are things in place back home to help me remember.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
