The Investigators, Inc. The Lost Team Case. Chapter 6. Helicopter Coming.

The Major, Snake and Tony went into the car together. Muffin was in there too and sat on the Major’s lap. “Okay now, Snake,” began Major, “where is Carnival?” “Who knows?” said Snake sarcastically, “find him yourself.” Tony punched Snake in the stomach. “I told you before, easy or hard, your choice,” said Major, “now, Carnival kidnapped a good friend of mine, we call him the Lieutenant, plus his wife and two other ladies. Where are they?”

“Sounds like a fun time for that guy with 3 dames,” said Snake. He was punched again, harder this time, causing him to groan. Major asked the same question. “Forget it old man,” said Snake. Major nodded to Tony who took out a rather large knife and started to push it into Snake’s stomach. “Wait, wait, do not kill me!” he said squirming. “Then answer my question,” said Major firmly, “this is your last chance.”

“Carnival took him to the mountains,” Snake began, “he found an old cabin up there one year and he uses it to, uh, “teach” people. But I do not know where it is and that is the truth!” He was sweating by this time. Tony took him out of the car and brought in Red. Snake was yelling he needed to go to the hospital or he would bleed to death. Rock told him to shut up and looked at his wound. “You will live,” said Rock, then he took off Snake’s shirt and told him to press it against the spot.

It appeared that Red was more stubborn than Snake and Tony dragged his body out of the car and brought in Bancroft. He cooperated quickly and told the Major the same thing as Snake. Then it was Charlie. He added a bit more about the location of the cabin and said they all knew. It would still be a lot of area to cover over rough terrain, to try and find us however. “What do you think Muffin?” asked the Major.

Meow,meow.=This one tell truth, I know. Others only tell what have to so they not get killed. Trust this one. “Good girl, I agree with you,” said Major, “you may go Charlie.” And he did so, very fast! Snake and Bancroft did not fare so well, however, and ended up swimming with the fish out on the lake. “Do you think it was a good idea to let Charlie go?” asked Rock. “I told him if he was smart, to leave Toronto right away,” said Major, “otherwise Carnival will likely chase him down for talking.

He likely will not take my advice though and will try to hide here. Now, we have to switch things quickly and head west to the mountains, that is where Carnival took them. It is likely going to take some time to find them.” “Well, I can fly anything, so can Benson, and I know Ralph can fly too,” said Rock, “so we can have 3 planes in the air looking for them.” “Yes, that is good,” said Major, “so we will get ourselves an early start tomorrow.”

Meanwhile, back to us. The girls had peeled the bark off some new branches, revealing that nice bright wood underneath. Then they cut them in smaller pieces and spelled out SOS on the dark gray shingles on the cabin roof. If any planes fly past, they just might see it and investigate. Problem is, in the nearly 5 weeks we have been here, not one plane has passed by here. This is obviously a very remote location, which is not good. But it keeps everyone busy, and somewhat encouraged, doing things like this.

I have lost track of time, and even the days since I went back to ‘nowhere’ do not register. Each day is just a day to me, nothing more. Perhaps that is a good thing for me. Having Sky here has been the biggest help for me though. She is calm, relaxed and always seems cheerful when she is around me. Her quiet, soft voice helps to calm me also, especially when those headaches hit me.

I do not know if she is really my wife or not, but they all say that she is. I know this much, I would be lost without her and I want to stay close to her all the time. Then, one day Kristina and Sigurbjorn came running in and said a helicopter was coming close to the cabin. They went out and tried to signal it with the mirror.

The helicopter turned and came directly over to us and hovered nearby. A door on the side opened and a couple of large wood boxes were pushed out, crashing to the ground. The girls then knew what that meant. Then a ladder came out and a man climbed down, carrying a large gun. Sigurbjorn came inside to get the gun we had, but I had gotten it already.

“Back outside,” I said to her, pointing the gun, “now.” She went back out and I stood in the doorway. The man came closer and I took aim and shot him. Down he went. Then I shot the other man in the door of the helicopter. He fell out, landing with a thud on the ground…

To Be Continued.

  1. That was not expected ! 😲 did you know that you shot the enemy ? πŸ€” I mean , how did you know who should be shot ? Is your memory coming back ? Why did you order Sigurbjorn to get outside ? πŸ€”πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜»πŸ˜ΊπŸ‘©πŸ‘©β€πŸ¦°πŸ‘©β€πŸ¦±πŸ‘©

    • Hmm, how did I know it was the enemy? I trusted what the girls had been telling me, especially Sky. I saw the men with guns and knew they must be here to hurt us, so I shot them. I did not even know I could shoot until I picked up the gun, then I somehow knew. But no, my memory is not coming back, I am still very much ‘nowhere’. Hmm, why did I order Sigurbjorn back outside, it was just to show the men that things were normal so they would not shoot.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ


  2. That was an eventful chapter!😳😲 But who did you shoot? Did you kill rescuers or Alberto’s men? I don’t think it coukd be any team members yetπŸ€” too soon and they were going to use planes I thinkπŸ€” cover more area in a plane and can always come back with a chopper if they spot you!
    Now I liked the way the Major dealt with Snake and the others!!🀭 by the time he got to the last guy he was gonna sing no matter what!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • Well, the men in the helicopter came with guns, not a good sign if they were here to rescue us. Plus they dropped wood boxes out of the chopper, obviously more supplies for us. That adds up to Carnival’s men. Yep, too soon for our team to be out there and they would use planes, faster for covering more area, and you’re right, then send back a chopper for us. Hopefully I won’t try to shoot it down though. Yes, the Major knows his job quite well it seems. I imagine Charlie was very nervous by the time his turn came along, so talking was easy!πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

  3. Those were definitely the bad guys. Maybe they had some food in the wooden boxes but they were evil. So good you found the gun and ammunition and killed them.

    • Yes indeed, they were, why else would they approach us with guns? Especially the kind of guns they had. I did not even know I could shoot, but when I picked up the gun, I just knew I could. Hopefully Carnival, or his men, will not miss these guys for a while, so they don’t come after us. That will give our team time to find us.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
