16. Trapped

No less than a moment after Trixie had said wait did the station spring into action. Everything happened so fast. There was a loud crash and bang followed by a yell. Trixie and Dan looked at each other knowing that whoever it was had just stepped into the pot hole under the carpet and fell into the trash cans they had set up nearby as a warning to the group.

'Time to go into action.' Jim whispered.

Trixie and Honey took their places at the door, keeping watch through the cracks and holding their choices of weapons close to them. Brian got ready with the net they had found and Jim stood with one end of the rope, Dan with the other. Mart and Di continued to work away.

They stayed quiet listening for the warning bells to go off so they knew where he was. The first bell went off, the reception area.

Trixie and Honey backed away and hid behind the desk. Suddenly Mart jumped down with a working phone in his hands.

'Make the call.' Trixie whispered.

'Who to?' he asked.

'Sergeant Molinson.' Trixie answered.

The next bell, Sergeant Molinsons office.

'Get ready everyone. He's getting closer!' Jim mumbled.

The third bell, the computer room.

'Sergeant Molinson! We've been locked inside the station. We have got rid of all the wires- yes they had set up wires. Whoever it is, is coming for us now- We assume it's Mad Stranger- We are staying put. We've set up stuff around the place to hopefully capture him. Get here as soon as possible!' Mart hung up the phone.

The forth bell, right outside the lab.

'What happened?' Trixie asked.

'He understands everything. He had gone over to the power station to see why the stations power was out and no one else's was. He assumed we had gone home he didn't know the station had been locked up. Everyone else wasn't here because they had been called out to a-'

Suddenly he was cut off by something. The last bell, right outside their door.

Dan and Jim pulled the rope tight and hid behind the furniture in the room. Brian stood at the end of the room as bait with the net hidden.

'Alright guys, Sergeant will be here soon. Let's just capture this mother!' Dan hissed.

Everyone looked at him.

'What? Too far?'

Suddenly the door burst open. Dan and Jim got ready.

'Well, well, well… what do we have here?' A deep voice croaked as he worked his way into the room towards Brian. He came closer and closer to the rope.

'So, you're friends deserted you?'

He stepped closer to the rope.

'So, so sad.'

And suddenly he was at the rope! He didn't see it. Jim and Dan pulled tight. When the man took his next step his foot got caught causing him to topple over face first.

'Hey! Stupid-'

Brian sprung up, throwing the net onto him. Dan, Jim and Brian held the rope down tight as Honey and Trixie rushed forward, bounding the man's feet and arms.

'Let me go!' he shouted

Di got up and switched on the lights. Brian pulled the net off and Jim and Dan got the man up onto a chair. He wore black clothes and a balaclava. They tied him to the chair.

'So, who do we have here?' Dan asked as he ripped the balaclava off the man.

They all gasped loudly.

It was Bradley.
