Max's Mystery Novel: Episode 12... the final chapter...


To bring you up to date... When we last left the story, Stephanie's kidnapper had called Sheriff Johnson to meet him in the park... He intended to trade Stephanie for the pictures from Fred's book. HH and Max went along to the drop.

When they neared the park, Max jumped out the window and started running toward where the kidnapper held Stephanie in the picnic pavilion...

Now, in my own words. here's the conclusion to the story...

At first I thought I would run straight for the kidnapper and lunge at him, but when I was partway across the field, I noticed that he had a gun on Stephanie.

I concluded that an approach from the front was probably too risky, so I slowed and nonchalantly turned left. To avoid suspicion, I pretended to chase a butterfly, who was more than happy to act as a decoy for my little charade. When I knew that they weren’t watching me, I snuck through the bushes on the left side of the field and followed the edge of them around to the backside of the pavilion.

Silently, I peeked around the last bush. First, I saw HH and Sheriff Johnson making their way across the field to meet with the kidnapper. Sheriff Johnson had his hand on his gun. I knew I couldn’t let him use it. I had to make my move, before they reached the pavilion and while the kidnapper was focused on them.

The adrenalin coursed through my veins. I didn’t stop to think of the danger… No, I soundlessly climbed on the nearest picnic table and hopped from table to table as quickly as I could. I moved faster and faster with each step... positioning myself behind my smarmy target.

When I was within range, I knew the timing was perfect. “Meooooooowwwwwww!” I screamed as I flew through the air. One... two... three... I counted in my brain, then I landed on the surprised shoulders of the kidnapper. With back claws fully extended I put on the brakes into his back and reached to cover his eyes with my front paws as best I could.

In surprise, the kidnapper lost his grip on the gun and I heard it bounce on the concrete. I looked over his head and saw Sheriff Johnson pull his gun and rush forward.

In an instant Sheriff Johnson had the kidnapper in cuffs and HH was working to peel me off the guy’s head.

Once I realized the danger had passed, I relaxed and let HH and Stephanie fuss over me.

Oh wow what a dramatic conclusion - so exciting!

Sparkle said...

Cool, an action scene!

BTW, the idea of putting chapters online like this is great - maybe my human should do something like this for some of her works-in-progress. On her own time, of course - she is still my assistant first, and everything else second!
