The Investigators, Inc. The Case of Mystery. Chapter 7. New Secret Weapon.

Well, we will soon put our plan into action, though we need to wait until tonight. Even if Toledo had seen Mac before, it is doubtful he would have recognized him sitting outside playing checkers that afternoon. Saranna does such a good job of temporarily changing a person’s appearance and she made Mac, who is 37, look like an older man in his 70s.

Even the beard he had grown while on vacation was very gray looking, he actually looked totally different. He had given a small device to the service station attendant and when he went to fill the tank of the van with petrol, he placed this device just inside the outer cap. It is a very sensitive device that can track that van over a very large area.

Plus it is also a listening device and all of their talking came in nice and clear, and it covers an area of 40 feet around the van as well. Earlier, since we know that Toledo can listen in on our conversations with another device he has, we decided to do the same, only by using a drone that is completely silent. And with one of these listening devices, it picked up their conversations perfectly.

That is why I knew when to step in front of Sky to keep her safe. This is not the real Sky however, since we got her, Trisha, Muffin and MC safely away last night to their new hiding spot. Galyna, Tracy and Ashley went along for protection, and now John and Vince are there too. Crystal is taking the place of Sky right now so they do not realize that she is gone.

After tonight it will not matter, unless for some odd reason, our plan is not successful. Toledo has his new weapon to use against us, but we have our new secret weapon to use against him and Carmen. I am really surprised that Toledo would team up with someone like Carmen, she is certainly not like him at all. And she will be his downfall. Plus, of course, the using of our secret weapon.

That secret weapon is one of the members from the special guard team that Mandar has given to us. She actually designed that tracking/listening device that we used. It also has a camera, which in this case did not help us because of where it was put. She has designed other things too, some will be a unique help to us as we carry on with our cases.

That drone we used was also her invention, being totally silent in operation. It can do different things as well and I am sure it will come in very handy. Mandar was kind enough to give us several of these drones. This woman has a rather unique name too, Kyanite, which is the name of a mineral. Her mother was a geologist and named all 5 of her children after minerals.

Kyanite would be a great addition to our team, so I will be talking with Mandar about that. Kyanite said it would be okay to call her Kyan if we preferred, most of her friends and her mother call her that. Her father died in a work related accident when she was 5. Her dad’s best friend, who was working with him at the time of his death, started spending a lot of time with the family and eventually married her mother.

Things went downhill after that, he changed a lot she said. He started to gamble and ended up losing all of her mother’s savings, and even their house. Before I say more, we are on our way to Toledo’s house having just picked up Mac in town.

Before we got too close, however, we used drones to check out the place carefully. He obviously relies totally on his electronic security system since we saw no guards around the place. We used the drones to listen in a bit to their conversations too. “Okay everyone, get ready,” I said, “we will be attacking in just a few minutes.” I have been waiting a long time for this, so I have been told…

To Be Continued.

    • Toledo is listening to us, we know that, but now we can also repay the favor! But he still can’t listen while we are in the library, our safe room, so he doesn’t know of our plan for tonight. This time we have him, although we have to get past his elaborate security system. But we can do that too now. Our secret weapon will see to that!πŸ€¨πŸ‘©πŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

  2. Toledo definitely has a few vulnerable things. His electronic security is one of them. He is cocky and figures he can out maneuver everyone. Hope your plan works.

    • Yes, our plan should work out quite well this time so that we can put an end to Toledo and Carmen finally. No, Muffin is not here, Carmen wanted to kill Sky and Muffin so both had to go into hiding along with Trisha and MC. Only Storm and the kittens are here with us. Yep, tonight we go!πŸ€¨πŸ‘©πŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ˜ΎπŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
