After about 30 seconds of shivering and whispers, Richard looked around.
"You guys gonna do anything or what?" Richard asked.
"Y- y- yeah we are!" Kacey said. She pulled out a S.P.L.A.N.K.E.R. Richard scoffed.
"Oh! I'm so scared!" Richard teased. "Or, I would be if I didn't have a giant paperclip myself!" Everyone's eyes bulged.
"How did HE get a S.P.L.A.N.K.E.R.?" Kacey screamed. She turned to her cousin.
"Heh heh, funny story...." Numbuh 4 began. "Well, it was in my bag and they took my bag." Everyone turned to him. They all growled.
"Don't worry, guys!" Numbuh 2 said. He grabbed his bag and pulled out what looked like a soda bottle. "A little something I've been working on!"
Richard laughed so hard he went into deep laughter once again. "You're gonna defeat ME with a SODA BOTTLE?" Richard's eyes were closed.
"Of course not," Numbuh 2 began, "It's just a distraction."
"Say wha-?" Richard said. When he opened his eyes Numbuhs 7, 3, 8, 1000, and 5 had S.P.L.A.N.K.ER.s pointed in his face. All he could say was: "Uh oh."
This next part was too violent for me to add. OK, fine! I'll tell you what happened. But not in excruciating detail. Not after that last time...
Many screams filled the air all coming from poor Richard Van Bloomehnoze. His kids heard him.
"Are you OK?"
When Richard came to, he saw his worried children in his face. All he could think about was the Kids Next Door.
"Where are those kids?" Richard screamed sitting straight up. His kids just shrugged. The Kids Next Door were nowhere to be found.
"Daddy?" Valerie asked. "Why do you wanna destroy the Kids Next Door?" Richard began to chuckle.
"Because, my dear Valerie, they killed your mother. That boy we had kidnapped, he's the one who did it....." Richard sighed. Valerie began crying. Mitchell rubbed her back.
"It's OK. It is. I promise you." Mitchell said. They would destroy the Kids Next Door someday.
Meanwhile, the Kids Next Door were heading back to their Tree-House.
"You actually were held captive by that clown guy?" Numbuh 2 asked.
"Yup, he threatened to kill me twice." Numbuh 4 laughed.
"Yeah!" Kuki added. "But Wally saved me by risking his own life!" Kiki, Megan and Hoagie cracked up so hard, they fell on the ground. Once again, Numbuh 5 smacked them with her hat.
Back at the tree-house something didn't seem right.
"WHERE'S TOBY?" Kacey asked running into her room. Everyone else joined in on the search. Then, Megan found a note.
"Hey, guys! Check this out!" She called. Everyone dashed into the briefing room.
"Gimme that!" Kacey shouted pulling the note from Megan. "If you'd ever like to see your beloved puppy again..." Kacey began. She shrieked in horror.
"...you must bring the small boy who is known as 'Wallabee Beetles'...." Kiki continued, gasping at the sight of Numbuh 4's name.
"...so he may tell us where the secret head-quarters of the Kids Next Door are...." Numbuh 2 read. He screamed like a little girl.
"...and so he will pay for what he did." Megan finished the note. Numbuh 4 gasped. As did the rest of them. But not at the note. They were gasping at the name that was signed at the bottom of the page.
Richard, Mitchell and Valerie Bloomehnoze
P.S. The puppy will die if the revealing of the base is kept a secret.
"W- well, I guess I know what our next mission is." Wally said, biting his finger-nails.
Kacey was angry. She grabbed a 70 page Note-book and ripped it in half.
"Oh, yes you do." she began, "Kids Next Door, BATTLE-STATIONS!!!!!!"
