13. It'll Be Alright

Jonesy stood before the 3 shocked friends, gun raised to Jim's temple.

Honey was pale, her eyes resting on Jim the entire time. Brian was in shock, not sure what to do. And Trixie was busy thinking up what to do. But Dan, Dan was nowhere to be found.

He must have slipped away before Jonesy noticed! Trixie thought.

She took a deep breath. Keep Jonesy talking. 'Weren't you meant to be in jail?' She asked.

He grinned, the most horrid grin Trixie had ever seen. 'Oh I was in jail, but didn't you hear? I escaped.'

Trixie frowned, 'so, you've been the one sending us all these letters?'

He laughed, 'of course!'

'You were the one in the factory?' Brian suddenly jumped in, realizing what Trixie was doing.

'And I took your precious little club members.'

'But why?' Honey whimpered.

'I knew you would be smart enough to figure it out,' he said waving his gun at Trixie. 'So all I had to do is take your friends and then you would bring what is mine straight to me.' he hissed, replacing the gun at Jim's temple.

'What is yours?' Trixie questioned. She knew what he meant.

'Mr James Winthrop Frayne II, of course!' Jonesy said, obviously getting tired of all the chitchat.

'What do you want with me?' Jim asked, finally finding his voice.

'I want you to come with me, help me escape from the police.' Jonesy said, matter of factly.

'And then what? Be your slave again? Have you treat me like i'm worthless?' Jim questioned, getting angry.

'But you are, that's what you don't understand!'

That lit the fire in Trixie's stomach.

'Don't speak to him like that.' Trixie hissed.

Trixie met Jim's eyes, and smiled. As weak as it was, it was a smile none the less.

Mart and Di sat tied to a large oak tree at the edge of the forest. Their feet and hands bound.

'Mart, i'm scared.' Di whispered.

'It'll be okay Di.' Mart said reaching for Di's hand.

'Wait, Mart, you can untie me!' Di said as she realized Mart could reach her hands.

Mart felt for the knot. He could reach it.

'Hold still Di, we'll be outta here in no time!'

Trixie took a small but bold step towards Jonesy.

'Don't move. And don't tell me what to do.' He said, angrily.

'Let Jim go. He won't help you, so it is no point taking him with you.' Trixie said taking another step. She noticed a small movement from behind Jonesy. It was almost pitch black, and shadows were dancing across his face. Moving shadows. She took another step.

'One more step and I'll shoot.' Jonesy said.

Trixie took another step.

Jonesy started to squeeze the trigged, but before he could shoot, Mart brought a heavy piece of wood down on Joneys head.

He fell to the ground, Mart gleaming behind him.

Jim struggled from Jonesy grip and raced forwards away from him.

Suddenly Trixie's eyes started to widen as she noticed Jonesy raising the gun for Jim's back.

'Jim, whatch out!' She screached, but a bang went off.
