As soon as Shelby and Will walked outside, a man grabbed Shelby by the arm and placed a gun to her head.
"Shelby!" Will cried.
"Don't move!" the man shouted.
"What is it that you want?" Will asked.
"I want $1,000. Don't move and don't attempt to follow me. No police. I'll call you with other instructions."
With that, the man took Shelby away, leaving Will standing outside the restaurant alone.
Rachel! Elizabeth! I've got to get to Shelby's house! He thought, adrenaline pumping through his veins. He jumped into the car and drove as fast as the speed limit would allow to Shelby's house. When he arrived, he knocked urgently on the door.
"Come on Rachel! Open the door!" he muttered.
Will pulled out his cell phone and dialed Shelby's house number.
"Corcoran residence." Came Rachel's voice.
"Rachel, it's Mr. Schue. I'm right outside the door. Hurry and open it."
Thirty seconds later, the door opened and Rachel let Mr. Schue in.
"Where's my mom?" Rachel asked.
"She's been kidnapped. Are you and Elizabeth ok?"
"Yeah, we're fine. Tell me everything."
"We were walking out of the restaurant when a man took your mom and put a gun to her head. He said he wanted one thousand dollars and I can't involve the police. He's going to call soon with other instructions."
"Oh, my gosh! Mom!" Rachel exclaimed, tears welling in her eyes.
"It's going to be all right, Rach. I'm not going to let anything happen to your mom."
Suddenly, Will's phone rang.
"Be at McKinley Park tomorrow at noon with the money. Put it in a black bag and place the bag in front of the trash can at the entrance to the park. Ms. Corcoran and I will be there at ten past noon. You will be sitting at the bench directly inside the park." Came a man's voice.
After this, there was a click on the other end.
"Hello? Hello?" Will asked.
He hung up and quickly wrote down the instructions.
"Rachel, go on to bed. Everything's going to be ok."
Rachel did as told and went upstairs. Will sat on the couch planning how he would get the money and be at the park by noon.
The next day, Will woke up about nine am and drove to the bank. He made a large withdraw of $1000 and walked back to the car where he placed the money the black bag sitting in the back seat. Then he drove to McKinley Park where he saw the trashcan and placed the bag in front of it. After that, he went to the bench directly inside the park that faced the entrance. Ten minutes later, a black car arrived. A man walked up and picked up the bag. Not wanting to do anything that would harm Shelby, Will watched silently as the man walked back to the car, counted the money and put the bag in the car. The man then opened another door and helped Shelby out of the car. He pointed to the entrance to the park and said something to her. Shelby then walked over to Will and the two of them walked over to Will's waiting car.
