Hello so in the last chapter Natalie got a message on a tablet from a strange man with a black beard. The note said that her parents were being held hostage and that she had to being one million dollars to Maine in the next seven days. Then the message fizzled out and the tablet started to smoke. She quickly threw it in the trashcan and then the trashcan exploded. I hope you enjoy the next chapter.
Chapter 3: Strange Encounter
I grabbed the fire extinguisher out of the closet and put out the fire, with my neighbors still screaming at me.
Then I gathered some clothes and shoved them in a backpack. After that I collected all of my emergency money that I had been saving for the longest time.
Then I went downstairs. I told my cat to follow me. Then a thought came to my mind. How in the world are you supposed to get to Maine?
I pondered this as my neighbors continued to scream. Then I heard the train go by a ways off.
“We are going to take the train!”I said out loud.
Then I picked up my stuff and went downstairs. I got my bike and threw my backpack on. I picked up Skyler and put her in the basket of my bike. As I walked my bike outside I heard police sirens in the front of the house. I immediately jumped on my bike and started pedaling hard and fast. I knew from all the police shows I had watched, that if they found me I would get arrested so I had to get to the train soon.
As I rode I looked down and saw that my cat was asleep. When I looked up there was a girl standing right in front of me. I stopped just in time.
“What are you doing!” I screamed.
She didn’t say anything.
“Hello!” I screamed and waved my hand in front of her face.
“Oh hi” She said. “I know who took your parents.”
“What, how do you know who took my parents? What are you talking about!?” I said.
“I know because well, I took them.”
As soon as I heard this I was filled with rage.
“WHAT!” I yelled
“I know you are confused and angry but you have to trust me.” she whispered.
Just then the man with the black beard came around the corner. The strange woman saw him and jumped behind me. Then I saw that he had a hammer.
“Well,” he said “We meet again.”
