The Investigators, Inc. The Lost Team Case. Chapter 12. Finding Carnival.

They drove to a building and stopped a little ways before getting to it. “That is the place,” said Tiny Tim, “his suite is on the second floor. There is 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and the rest is one big room. He might have a lady with him and always 4 guards in the place, plus 4 on the main floor. They stay in a small room across from the elevators watching the security cameras.” “We need to knock them out first,” said Major to Rock, who had joined them outside their car.

Baldwin got in the car with the others, but Carver and Tony got out. “You okay with him?” asked Carver. Major and Baldwin pulled out guns. “We will be okay,” he answered. Rock and a couple of the girls went in first to deal with the security guards. They found the room and Rock pounded the door right off its hinges. Tracy and Aasta shot 2 of the men and Rock took care of the other two.

They called the others and everyone came inside. They pressed the 3rd floor but stopped the elevators on the second, just so the guards would hopefully not see them coming so easily. It worked, the two guards by the elevators were taken by surprise, Tony and Ralph taking care of them speedily. Then the four cats went running into the main room, looking quickly for the other guards, but saw none.

Meow,meow!=Okay to come in, not see guards! “They must be hiding,” said Crystal. They all rushed into the room. They surprised Carnival who was occupied with a young lady. Four more guards came out of one bedroom. “Thwock, Thwock!” and two were down. Crystal and Angel shot the other two. “Well, Carnival,” said Carver, “looks like you have met your end finally. You, girl, get out of here fast.”

“I do not know what kind of business you are in Alberto,” she said, “but count me out!” She left quickly. “Young lady coming down, blond, she has permission to leave,” said Crystal to Tracy who was still on the main floor. “Now Carnival,” said Rock, “you come with us, someone wishes to talk with you. I would suggest you cooperate, might just save your life.”

They brought Alberto down to the car where Major, Baldwin and Mandar were waiting. Tiny Tim had been paid and he was long gone already. Like the brave man that he was, Carnival quickly told the men where the cabin was located. It was now midnight, so they needed to wait until morning to fly out there. They decided on using a plane first, since Carnival had used helicopters and both never returned. The planes had Baldwin’s insignia on them, easy to spot, whereas the choppers were rentals. They would send choppers later.

Meanwhile, at the cabin. It was morning and I was going over my notes. Sky had got me started with keeping notes so I could remember what had happened the previous day. Kristina came in, “You are up early Steve,” she said, “and why the frown?” “I am going over my notes from yesterday,” I said, “I do not remember any of this, though I know it happened. But it says here that Sigurbjorn tried to kill herself. Why would she do that? According to my notes, she is the reason we are still alive after being here 6 weeks.”

“I will try to explain,” said Kristina, “but you must promise not to laugh or make silly remarks to her or anyone else.” “I will promise that,” I said, “though I probably will not remember.” I wrote down my promise. “Sigurbjorn, well, it has been a long, hard 6 weeks with just the 4 of us,” she began, “and you no longer loved Sky, and, well, Sigurbjorn fell in love with you. She hated herself for that and did not want you, or anyone, especially Sky, knowing about it.

She felt so bad that she decided the best thing would be to kill herself before anyone found out. But it did not quite work and you saved her.” I put my head down, that headache was back now. “I am responsible for her trying to kill herself then,” I said quietly. “No Steve,” said Kristina, “you are not. Sigurbjorn just did the wrong thing thinking everyone on the team would make fun of her for loving you.”

I frowned again. “Would anyone on the team do that?” I asked. “No, of course not,” she replied, “but it is just this long time out here with things getting steadily worse, so she was just not thinking clearly. But I am sure she will be fine once we get home again.” “If we get home again,” I said, “after today we will not have any food left, I checked already.”

“Yes, I know, I checked it yesterday,” she admitted, “they must find us…” She stopped. “It’s a plane!” she exclaimed, and went outside. Sure enough, it was one of Baldwin’s planes. A note was dropped saying that helicopters were coming, with stretchers, if needed by anyone. Unbelievably we were soon on our way back. But, back to what?

To Be Continued.

  1. That was quite the revelation!😳 I would not have guessed that! But those things will happen when in stressful situations! Now we will see if there is any coming back from nowhere after 6 weeks without you medicine!πŸ€” Can they bring you back? Will Sky and Sigurbjorn live??🫣

    • Yes indeed, stressful situations can play out in different ways. Too bad she thought the team would laugh at her, but that is part of stress too. Hmm, can they bring me back? Good question. If not, it will be a long hard road to a new life. But it will only be a daily life, not like just starting over again. This is not good, I would be useless for the team in any capacity if I can only go one day at a time. Will the girls live? Hard to say on that one, they both had serious wounds so only time will tell if they survive or not. But once back at our hospital, then Saranna can check them out carefully to see if there is internal damage or not. Is this over now?πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸš

  2. So glad you were finally rescued in the nick of time. You all need medical help, food and the security of being home. I hope Carnival swims with the fish.

    • Yes, those cats know their job and are a good help. They can sneak around like people can’t! Now to see if Sky and Sigurbjorn survive and if I get my memory back!πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
