10. Match


Spider barged into the factory searching for the 7 friends. He only found 5. Worry filled his mind.

'Mart and Di are in the car.' Trixie said.

Spider sighed with relief. 'I heard the scream. Is everyone alright?'

'Yeah just a little shaken.' Jim supplied.

'Another letter?' Spider asked.

Trixie nodded.

Spider pulled a plastic bag from his pocket and Trixie dropped the evidence into it.

'I'll send this back to the station for fingerprints.' He said, 'you lot should head home. We will let you know if anything comes through.'

Trixie nodded again, hugging herself. Suddenly she felt very cold. Jim put an arm around her, comforting her.

'Com'on Trix, lets head home.' He said.

The Bob-Whites headed out to the car, followed by Spider. He walked off in the direction of his hidden car. Suddenly Honey yelped. Spider spun round and raced for her.

'What is it?' He asked raising his gun and searching the area.

'Mart and Di are gone!' Honey whispered.

Dan, Jim, Brian, Honey and a very shaken Trixie all arrived down at the station. This was going to far. Kidnapping her brother and Di? Not agood move. She was fired up now. She would find this guy and put him behind bars. No matter what it took.

Sargent Molinson called the lot into his office to replay the nights events. The knife and letter had bees sent off for fingerprints straight away.

'So what happened?' Sargent Molinson asked.

'Well we arrived at the factory-' Jim began.

'After realizing that the piece of paper our last note came on had come from the factory-' Trixie quickly added.

Jim nodded, 'yes so we arrived and went in. As we opened the door a huge amount of bats flew out of the door.'

'Then we stepped inside and found the place pretty empty. Mart and Di said they wanted to go back to the car.' Brian continued.

'Trixie went further into the factory and then someone attacked her.' Honey went on.

Sargent Molinson looked at Trixie.

She raised her head. 'He or she or whoever it was came at me with a knife. I fell down and the person raised the knife as if to stab me. Then they brought it down beside my head. The others then joined me and the person fled. Later I found out they had stabbed another letter into the ground.'

'Then Spider came in and took the stuff from Trixie. We went out to get in the car and head home but Honey looked in the window and Mart and Di were gone!' Dan finished.

Sargent Molinson had been writing the whole time. 'Alright, usually we have to wait 48 hours before we can place a missing persons report. But after calling your homes and realizing that the two aren't there, I think its safe to say that this is an obvious kidnapping. I will file the report now. Your parents will be here soon to take you home.'

The Bob-Whites nodded. Suddenly Spider burst through the door.

'Spider what is it?' Jim asked jumping from his seat.

'We have found a match on the fingerprints on letter.' he said, quite out of breath.

'And on the knife?' Trixie asked, also raising herself from her seat.

He shook his head, 'no he must have been wearing gloves, its spotless. Only the letter had fingerprints. But there's a catch.'

Brian frowned, 'what is it?'

'Well, the fingerprints belong to Mr James Winthrop Frayne I.'

The Bob-Whites gasped.

'But he died 5 years ago!' Jim said, stunned.
