Chase around the world in 80 days
Have you ever considered that you would chase a suspect 80 days,all around the world? That would be amazing,right? Well,it happened to me and some friends of mine. It all started back,80 days ago of this day....
I was just relaxing in my chair,when Joseph Zeo came walking in. "How ya doing Vulkie" and Joseph shaked my hand. "I'm doing fine Joseph. I've got some great Cuban cigars from Camille,out of Costa Rica. Have one" I replied.
As Joseph was looking for a big cigar,the phone began to rang. "Detective Vulkie,private eye,how may I help you" as I said in the phone,while looking at Joseph.
As I heard more and more information,Joseph saw my face turning into despair and trouble. Then,I hung up the phone and told Joseph what I heard.
"We need to catch a guy. The only trouble is,he's disappeared and his wife says that he likes to travel around the world. He left a note for her,saying the first city he was going to visit was London. His wife can't life so long without him,since she is terminally ill. She has 80 days left..." I said to Joseph and his face also began to turn.
"Nah,I don't know. Travelling is not what I like. Unless,I get a great sum of money and personal expences are covered."
As I told Joseph the amount we could get,his face began to turn happy and he immediately packed his suitcases. But first things first. We needed to check the apartment of the man. His name was Gregory Louson and his wife Laura,was desperate to find him. She heard that I solved many cases (already a 1000 cases) and that I could probably find him.
So,Joseph and I went to the apartment...
In less than two days in Baltimore, they had recieved an anymous tip that Mr. and Mrs. Louson was staying in a five star hotel in down-town Baltimore. Vulkie led the raid into the Hotel with the other five detectives behind her. Heimlich went up to the counter telling the little man behind it who everyone was. He told the man that they were detectives. Vulkie went up to the counter and demanded that he tell us what room the Lousons were staying in.
The man cooperated. Room 418. Everyone got to the room lined up with their guns out and ready. Marc stepped up and kicked in the door with all his might. The door flew open slamming into the wall. Quickly everyone filed into the room only to find another note left in Mrs. Louson's hand writing. The note read:
You're again, too late. Apxarently, we xired the wrong people. You see, thxs has become a game to us now. Alx of you have a unique talent, xnx it will require all of you to find us. You havx figured out the code in the first xetter but this time, it won't be so easy. Xerxaps, you can catch us xn the next plxce. But I doubt it. So don't try to follow us. Every time we catch a scent of you, we will disappear.
Anais ran down stairs to find out when they checked out while everyone else discussed the note in the room.
"Look at the letters where the x's are," Heimlich said. "It's just like the last note--"
He was cut off by Joseph. "The last note led us here to Baltimore. Mr. and Mrs. Louson are toying with us. They knew we were coming. I know exactly where they are going."
There was a silence in the room. Everyone looked at the x's. They looked at the letters that they replaced. Then it hit them at once. Everyone looked at each other and at the same time they shouted, "Philadelphia!"
Anais ran into the room at the same time. "They checked out two hours ago. If we hurry, we can head them off!" That was it. It was the first big break in the case. They left the hotel.
Again,3 days passed and we arrived in Philadelphia. "Jeez,what a deserted place this is" Heimlich said,as he looked out of the window. "Yeah... Not sure if they're still here,those Lousons.." Lacrimosa said and I nodded,while driving. "I'm getting tired of this,you know... We've been everywhere by now and it's getting annoying. I wonder if we're getting them,ever..." Joseph said.
"Don't worry. We're almost where we need to be..." Riza said and she pointed at a motel.
And the same happened as in Baltimore. We asked around,we had a roomnumber and a note left.
"Sigh,again..." I said and it pointed out that they were heading back to NY,for the final time,before disappearing completely.
"This is our chance. They've got a headstart of one day. If we continue to drive 24 hours a day,we'll make NY in 3 days. But we need to rest for one day..." I said and the gang nodded.
"Everyone,get ready. They're making their move... now!" as Heimlich quietly whispered.
Joseph sat in the car with Marc and Anais,I,Riza and Heimlich were getting ready to get the Lousons.
"I sure hope we can make the boat in time..." Louson said. "Yeah,those dumb detectives won't get you now anymore, "darling"." the fake Mrs. Louson said.
"You mean us?" I yelled and they looked behind them,seeing they were surrounded.
"You've made a bad mistake Louson. Don't go back to the place you come from" I said and I cuffed him.
"Finally,over" Anais said,as she patted me on the shoulder. The local newspaper boy saw what happened and immediately informed the newspapers and the police.
As Heimlich,Riza,Anais,Joseph and Marc sat in The Tricky Mister bar,I came in rushing,with a newspaper in my hands.
"Guys,we've made the frontpage" I said and read the clipping for them
"Local Sleuths travel world and capture criminal"
"The detectives Vulkie,Joseph Zeo,Heimlich VonVictor,Anais Nin,Riza Hawkeye and M.Lacrimosa have made a journey they never will forget. At first,Detective Vulkie got a case and went off with her friend Detective Joseph Zeo. Soon,they arrived in London,meeting Detectives Anais Nin and Riza Hawkeye. When travelling,they met famous Detective Heimlich VonVictor and Detective M.Lacrimosa and they've travelled the world in less then 80 days. Eventually,they got the suspects and made sure they went behind bars. Now that's left is to "give" the treasure back to the rightful owners." I said and everyone looked happy.
"Indeed,a journey not to forget" M.Lacrimosa said.
On this journey,I made 2 new friends. Riza Hawkeye and M.Lacrimosa. Friends,who cared for me and I cared for,even if I didn't let them see so.
Friends... The most important thing in your life,besides health and money,are friends.. Friends to share stories,to travel with,to be happy with.
Yeah,friends. Did I ever tell you what happened after this? Nah,I won't tell you for now. That's for another story. Until the next time!
(I want to thank Mr. Joseph Zeo,Miss Anais Nin,Miss Riza Hawkeye,Mr. M.Lacrimosa and Mr. Heimlich VonVictor,to make this story complete and making it interesting and giving me full support. As always,a successful story and a thrilling story.
