The Investigators, Inc. The Lost Team Case. Chapter 10. Hunting.

“Clarence, take Tony and Carver on a little hunting trip,” said the Major, “see if you can stop these guys before they cause us some trouble.” “Sounds good Major,” he said, “anyone else to come?” “I think you guys need some bait,” said Crystal, “and the best bait for guys is girls, like us.” “What do you think Mr. B?” asked Major. “Well, it might work, but it is dangerous, so it is volunteer,” he said.

“Okay Crystal,” said Major, “pick two others to go with you.” “Okay, that will be Tracy and Angel,” she said. “And Storm,” added Angel. “Might be a good idea,” said Major, “you want to go too Muffin?” he asked, “you can stay with Clarence, keep him out of trouble.” Meow,meow.=Me happy to go and do good job to protect human Clarence friend.

“I still do not know about this talking cat thing,” said Tony, shaking his head. “Listen to them Tony,” said Major, “they can hear and see things that people cannot.” Off they all went and cruised around for a few hours. Then Clarence stopped the car. “That looks more like a place they would hang out,” said Clarence. The girls went in first, with Storm riding on Angel’s shoulder.

At first they would not let Storm come in, but the manager said it was okay if he behaved himself. Once inside they began to look around. Major had shown them pictures of the men and they spotted Wheeler and Kristopher playing cards at a table with 3 other guys. They wandered over to watch and Crystal leaned on Wheeler’s shoulder. He was a fairly big, muscular man and wore dark glasses. Kristopher was a tall man, even sitting, and was a thin, very well dressed man with a moustache.

He did not look his part at all, being a hit man. Angel went to stand beside him, while Tracy stood behind another very large man, leaning on him. He looked at her and she gave him a nice smile. He smiled back. “Stick around girl, after this we can go have some fun,” he said. Wheeler turned to Crystal. “I do not like being touched lady, go somewhere else,” he said coldly. “That goes for me too, little girl,” Kristopher said to Angel, “you girls do not look old enough to be in here.”

“Oh, but we are Kristopher,” said Angel. “Yeah Wheeler, what harm can little girls like us do to big men like you anyway?” asked Crystal. Wheeler suddenly stood up, as did Kristopher. “Okay, you 3, come with us,” said Wheeler, “I want to know how you knew our names.” “Everyone knows you boys,” said Tracy, “but why you work with a little nobody like Carnival is hard to understand.” “We go now,” said Wheeler, “and no trouble or you will not like it.”

They steered the girls out the door and around back to their car. “Sorry boys, this is where we split company,” said Crystal. The girls then turned and proceeded to kick those 3 men. They did okay with 2, but that very large man knocked Tracy and Angel to the ground. That is when Storm attacked him, jumping on his back and scratching hard. He yelled and that is when Tony and Carver entered the fight. “Remember me?” Carver asked Wheeler, “remember what I said would happen if we met again?”

Meanwhile, back at the cabin. “Good thing we had that bottle of alcohol I guess,” I said, “good to disinfect things.” While I was about to take out the bullet another picture showed up in my mind. “I just saw a woman with long hair and she said ‘you can do it Steve, I trust you completely’, I told Sigurbjorn. Kristina had shown up by then. “That would have been your last wife, Kat,” she said, “you removed a bullet from her too. Sky would be saying the same thing right now if she was awake.”

We had put a blanket on a board, then carefully put Sky on that. It will make it easier to carry her to bed afterward, without disturbing her much. The bullet came out easily and I sewed up the incision. “She will have a small scar there,” I said. “I do not think she will mind,” said Sigurbjorn smiling. Just then Kristina shot at something. A man fell by a large pine tree.

I grabbed my gun and went over to look. No one else was around. He must have jumped from the chopper before the explosion. I took the weapons he had, which were quite a few. Kind of odd I thought. He was one of the 4 new men that Carnival had hired, he liked guns of all kinds and always carried a lot with him. Of course we did not know this.

After we got Sky in bed, Sigurbjorn went out stomping in the snow, spelling out SOS in very large letters. She came back inside and saw me beside the bed with Sky telling her that I loved her. Maybe this is what Steve needed to bring him back, she thought to herself. But, something was happening that she did not like…

To Be Continued.

  1. I wonder what she saw ! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฏ all I can say is be careful ! ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆฐ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆฑ๐Ÿ˜ผโ—๏ธ

    • Yes indeed, what did Sigurbjorn see that she did not like? It seems kind of odd with only the 4 of us inside the cabin. Always something strange going on. What we need is something normal and to get rescued quickly before anything else happens to us out here. Right now Sigurbjorn is the only one who is healthy, if something happened to her, we would be in big trouble!๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšโœˆ๏ธ

  2. I trust those 3 men will talk and see their demise. The man that Kristina shot was a survivor from the crash. Glad the SOS was put in the snow, it was needed. Sigurbjorn is seeing something she does not like. Is it another man that survived the helicopter crash or something else?

  3. See?? You saved her!! Just like I said! It woukd all come back to you when you needed it!๐Ÿ˜ Good thinking on that SOS in the snow โ„๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ‘ that will be easy to see! Now to find out if these fellas have any usable information on your whereabouts!๐Ÿค”

    • Well, she’s not quite saved yet, just the bullet is gone. But what if there is internal problems? Time will tell. I doubt that Wheeler and Kristopher would talk, they are too hard and cold. Besides, they are just recently hired killers that likely no nothing about where we are. However, the large man might be more useful.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿš

      • It seems he’s willing to make a deal to save his own skin…๐Ÿคจ but they can’t trust him to much!! He might just double cross them…๐Ÿค”

      • Yep, but they are keeping him until they catch Carnival. Then he will get his money and make his getaway. I imagine he will leave quickly too!๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿš

      • I think if the team catches Carnival that big guy won’t need to fear him for too long after you guys are rescued!๐Ÿคจ Between the Major and Viktor, he life expectancy is very short!๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Yep, I think that Major will want to take Carnival back to Victor for a nice discussion. Unless he gets killed in a fight. But that might not be so good for us at the cabin. There must be someone else who knows where we are. Of course, there were, but they are dead now.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

      • Yes indeed! Now I will need to lean on Kristina a little bit and hope she will hold up under the new added stress. We will certainly need time to recover after this one!๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿš

      • That’s for sure!! You may even need to become a bit more like Mandar and Baldwin… ya know delegate the work and supervise the help!๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคจ Let’s face it…. there comes a time when you just need to let the younger ones takeover the heavy lifting!๐Ÿคจ

      • Some of those younger ones are older than me! Like Rock and Annelie. I am just not a stay behind kind of guy, I started the investigators so I could be out there, not to stay home. Too boring. Although, for now, until I get back from nowhere, I will have to stay home.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿš
