The Adventures of Jumpy Janice

Chapter 15
‘Locked Up’

We called Lincoln Lodge, hoping that they’d called, looking for Karen. The woman there told me that two rough looking guys had been by there twice looking for someone, and reportedly left on foot, very pissed. We left a message telling her that we’d call again, in case they wanted to leave us a message. I told her to tell them that I had, their friend, Karen.

We grabbed some dinner, and returned to the room and called the other motel again. The woman said that they’d been there again, and got our message. They’d left a number for us to call them at. Said some bikers had come by too asking questions.
I dialed the number, and it rang and rang, and as I was about to hang up Rex answers. He sounded like a monster, like someone half crazed. He told me that they’d broken into a house and they were hold out there. They still had Gabriel and they’d been torturing her, and that she was going through hell. He put her on the phone, and she sounded half dead, barely able to talk. She told me that they’d been beating the shit out of her, and raping her, and that she didn’t know how much more she could take. I told her I loved her. Then Jason got on screaming, telling me that I was dead. I told him that I had Karen, and I’d kill her if they didn’t release Gabriel. I told him that I’d had her tied up in a stream nearby trying to get her to tell me where the money was, and she’d almost frozen to death, and that I’d put her back in, and let her freeze to death, if he didn’t release Gabriel. Ok, I was full of it, but it worked. He was really pissed, and demanded that he talk to her.

Well, this would be the test. I put Karen on the phone, and she played it really well. She acted like she was freezing and thought she’d die, and told him that she loved him. She gave the phone back to me, and I could just hear him screaming shit like ‘you fucking bitch..’ well on it went. Rex got on and told us that we could hook up and make the exchange. I wanted to meet at the Lincoln Lodge but he said no way, and insisted we come to the house they’d broken into. We left the money at the cabin, and headed for the house where they were.

We got lost, but finally found the place. It looked like a summer place that the owners had boarded up while they were gone. We knocked on the door.

Rex answered. He looked terrible, like he’d been on coke for days. There was Jason behind him, looking the same way, like some animal that wanted to kill us.

“Get in here.” Jason yelled at Karen, and she did.

Jason grabbed her and knocked her down, asking her where the fucking money was, and that he knew that she’d tried to rip him off. Said the only reason he wanted her back, was so he could kill her, and again asked where the fucking money was. She told him that we’d tell them when he let us go with Gabriel, who was nowhere in sight. Jason blew up, telling Rex to kill us all, but Rex told him to shut the fuck up. He wanted his money. I told them that the money was at the abandoned building where we all were last and asked where the hell Gabriel was. They said we’d get Gabriel when they had the money. I was pissed.

Rex demanded that we drive him to the abandoned buildings. I was hoping that The Kid would still be there, and that he or I might figure something out in the meantime. We all got in the car and headed down there. The whole way Jason was giving Karen shit, calling her a traitor, and a thief, and told her he’d kill her.

A half hour later we got to the abandoned buildings by the shore. We all had guns on us, so this could get bloody. I have to admit, I was scared. The Kid was nowhere in sight.

“Where’s the fucking cash.” Rex screamed.

I told him that The Kid had it, but said he might have gone for food or something, and should be back soon, so we all sat down and waited.

Well, The Kid ‘was’ there. I saw him peeking around a corner.

Jason went outside to pee, and we figured this was our chance. The Kid snuck up behind Rex and smashed his head with a board knocking him out, and then we dragged him into another room to gag him and secure him with a long chain and locks The Kid had found. Just then Jason came back in, asking where Rex was. We told him he’d gone out front, where The Kid was waiting with the board. Well, Jason went for it, and The Kid knocked him out too. We dragged him into the other room too, chained him up too, running the chain between two posts, locking Rex to the other end.

The Kid threw water on them, and they woke up hurting and pissed.

“Where’s Gabriel” I demanded.

They told me to go to hell, and that she’d be dead soon unless we released them. They said they had her hidden deep in the woods, clad only in her underwear, and that she’d freeze to death if she wasn’t rescued. Poor Gabriel. I loved her so much. I couldn’t stand to think of what she’d gone through, and what she might be going through now. I told them that unless we got to her, we’d leave them chained, to die there. Actually I intended to leave them here to die anyway. The Kid would leave and try and figure out where she might be, and I’d stay here to torture them till they coughed it up.
