The Investigators, Inc. The Case of Carrie’s Family. Chapter 5. Ghosts.

Well, our enemies have used things against us more times than I can to think about. Good thing I cannot remember them, but that is what I have been told anyway. Now it is our turn to use our technology against our enemies. Tonight Menton and his boys will have some fun, but not the kind they want, I am sure of that. They will also have trouble sleeping too.

And, we get to watch all the fun since we put cameras and listening devices all over that house. Plus, we will be showing them some, um, home movies tonight. We took their phones so they cannot call anyone, though they still have a landline phone. We hooked that up so no matter what number they call, it will come to us and to our “Angel” hotline.

Angel was able to come very close to the voice of Carrie’s mom, and we were able to make Galyna look just like her mom also. We also took the keys to their cars, plus gave each car 2 flat tires, just to make sure they will not try to take off somewhere. Mac, John and Vince are close by watching the place as well, and we will know if they leave the house anyway. We went to a lot of work and planning for this, so hopefully it will work.

I am really hoping that Menton will actually confess to killing his wife. Not that we could use that against him to get him arrested, but it would be nice to know for sure anyway. Right now Menton is pacing back and forth in the living room with his 2 sons trying to watch TV. But I am sure they will stop that soon when we cut into their TV in a few minutes.

“Hey dad, could you stop walking around like that?” said Kenny, “It is disturbing us and the sports news is nearly on.” “How can you be worried about sports right now?” he bellowed, “we are in a lot of trouble here with these people.” “Why not tell Painter about them?” asked Willie, “He would know how to handle them.” “Oh yeah, great idea, tell Painter,” said Menton sarcastically, “we do that and Painter will find out what we are doing and you know what happens then? We end up as grass fertilizer!”

“Well, we will help you think, but after the sports news, okay?” said Kenny. Just then the sports news was about to begin. “Hello darling, how has your day been?” said the woman. Menton just stared. “Hey, that is mom!” yelled Kenny. “That is impossible!” yelled Menton. “What is wrong darling, do you not miss me?” said Susie, “I do not really miss you either ever since you pushed me down the basement stairs.” “Turn that off, turn it off!!” bellowed Menton. “I, I can’t, it will not turn off,” said Willie.

Menton went and picked up the TV and smashed it on the floor. “Well, looks like we got his attention anyway,” I said. “Yes,” said Sky, “and we got Susie looking and sounding just right obviously.” “Well, even if we are off a little, because they are so upset, they will not notice anyway,” I said. “Very true,” said Galyna, “their subconscious will help us a lot now that they are so upset.

And guilt will settle in quickly as well. This should be an interesting evening.” “I am glad he is getting a little taste of what things feel like,” said Carrie, “even though it is kind of hard for me to watch.” “You do not have to,” I said, “some of the girls would be happy to spend time with you in one of the other rooms.” “No, I want to stay,” she said, “for now at least.” “Are you getting this clearly Annelie?” I asked.

“Yes we are,” she answered, “Mr. B and Mr. M. are here watching too.” Mandar was planning to come along with us, but something came up and he had to stay behind. That is probably best anyway. “Hey, I smell bacon and eggs,” said Willie and both boys ran into the kitchen. “Dad, come quick!” said Willie. He came into the kitchen and just stared.

There was his wife Susie, standing at the stove frying up bacon and eggs. “Hope you boys are hungry, they are almost done,” she said. “Spooks!” yelled Kenny. “I do not believe in spooks,” growled Menton, “come here you, woman.” “You come here darling,” she said, “I am busy cooking.” Menton went over to her and was about to touch her when she disappeared.

“See?” It is a spook!” said Kenny, “she looked like a real woman standing there too!” “It is just a trick, with cameras,” said Menton. “What about the smell?” asked Willie, “and no camera can make a picture look like a real person.” “They can do anything these days,” growled Menton. “Harold, what are you doing?” said Susie. She was now by the basement stairs.

“No Harold, no, don’t push me, no!” she yelled as she tumbled down the stairs. Menton went and looked, she was lying at the bottom of the stairs. “This place is haunted!” yelled Kenny. “Shut up!” said Menton, “those people are just trying to scare us, look, she disappeared again.” “That is what spooks do,” said Kenny looking very scared…

To Be Continued.

    • Oh well, we are not finished with them yet. Menton is going crazy, he will confess, I am sure of it now. Or his boys will say something. This is going according to plan very nicely. Wait till he calls our Angel hotline and sees more ghostly visitors in the night! He will be tired when we show up tomorrow!πŸ€¨πŸ‘©πŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ‘»πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Yep, I’m sure he will and there will be more than one good push coming his way before the night is over! We are going to make him and those two sons of his really do some sweating tonight!πŸ€¨πŸ‘»πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

        Yep, now there is only one thing that can spoil our fun and hard work tonight with the Menton family.πŸ€”πŸ‘»πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Oooo, I never even thought of that possibility! That would be bad. But maybe other friends might show up for a visit since they just got back from a buying trip. Some of the dealers they sell to just might come around looking for their stuff, which they don’t have anymore. That could be very bad.πŸ€”πŸ‘»πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Bad for them! Too bad!🀭🀭
        But what can they do to you? Your guys would see them coming and vamoos before they knew they were there!

      • It would be bad for Menton and his boys if they don’t have the goods for their buyers. But maybe Menton can talk his way out of it by telling them about us.πŸ€” One of those buyers might have heard about us before and that would spoil things and get Menton off the hook!πŸ˜ πŸ‘»πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • Alternate plan? Hmm, never thought about that. We will come up with something though. Guess we will have to stop anyone from showing up, if we can.πŸ€”πŸ‘»πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

      • I know!!πŸ˜ƒ How about a road block with fake cops and a fake very large truck accident blocking the road? That would fool them and since they wouldn’t lime cops they won’t hang around to see what happens!πŸ˜‰ Well? Whataya think?πŸ€” Pretty good huh??

      • Um, where do we get all this stuff in the next few minutes? Takes time to arrange for all of that, especially the uniforms and police cars, little things like that. Would have been a good idea though with a bit more time to work it out.πŸ€”πŸ‘»πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

  2. Looks like things are working out so far but the night is young. Even though your memory is gone, you and your team had much time to be on the receiving end of such tricks that Menton and his sons are going through. Reminds me of Scrooge and the men that visited him.

    • Yes, we are kind of doing a play on the Scrooge story! We have learned a lot about things like this and we have now found ourselves a good man to film such things too. He did a great job to make things so realistic for us. We might use him again in the future. But, yes, things could still go wrong for us. Someone might still come to visit them and that would be a big problem for us.πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ‘»πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

    • That is the intention, to freak them out, and it is working wonderfully! Our new video man knows his job and makes things so realistic looking with our girls playing the parts. And the night is not over yet! More in todays chapter!πŸ€”πŸ‘©πŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ˜ΌπŸ‘»πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
