"If you ever want to see your sister alive detective, met me at Washington park at the arboretum," a dark icy voice said from the other end of the phone.
"I don't have a sister," Nick lied.
"We know all about her and your search for her, but sadly, I found her first and I will kill her if you do not comply," the dark icy voice said.
"When?" Nick asked.
"At 9 pm, tonight," he said then hung up the phone.
"Who was that?" Monroe asked.
"I don't know…but whoever it was has Lynn," Nick answered.
"How do they even know about her?" he asked stunned.
"I don't know, but I think know where they took her, I know it's going to sound odd. But I heard some of the noises and I think it is that warehouse that those FBI agents died the first time my mom came into town," Nick said.
"Well them what are we waiting for? Let's go check," Monroe said as he got up and got his jacket.
"He will come for you," the man said in dark gravelly voice.
Lynn would have responded that she had no clue who he was talking about but her mouth had duct tape over her mouth and wrapped around her hands and feet. And for some reason having her 'taped' up wasn't enough, he had put her in a cage to keep her from escaping. She rolled her eyes and thought to herself, 'I could escape easily…but I would prefer to do it when you are not around…'
"Are you scared little girl? Because you should be!" he said as he rattled the cage he had put her in. She just glared at him defiantly and tried to kick him. He laughed as he rattled the cage again. As he raged the cage again Lynn saw two people enter the room and go separate ways. 'I will keep you occupied so you won't see them coming,' she told herself and she kicked at his fingers. When he screamed and then cursed she knew that she must have broken at least one finger.
"I will teach you a lesson, not to mess with things that you don't understand," he paused as he reached into his pocket and took out the key and unlocked the cage. He pulled her out by her feet then he said, "time for some fun."
Lynn's eyes widened and she began to struggle more hoping that her gift didn't end up back firing on the man. Before they got too far out of the cage the man was hit over the head and tossed into the cage. Then two sets of hands were on her. One ripped the tape off of her mouth she let out a small ouch.
"Sorry…but the slower it is the more painful it is," the one to her left said.
"It's ok," she said slowly as he untapped her hands then her feet.
"Monroe, take her to the car…I will join you in a minute," the man to her right said.
Lynn turned her attention to him as their gaze met. "Do I know you?" she asked.
"No…we have never met before," the man paused as he looked behind them into the open cage, then said, "Lynn, we can talk about this when we get you some place that is safe. Monroe go," he said as he hauled her to her feet, and then the man known as Monroe began to drag her out of the boathouse.
"Wai-" she started but was stopped when a the man just picked her up and through her over his shoulder as he said, "Sorry, but I'm not about to argue with Nick…he may not normally want to kill me but if I let something happen to you, he would kill me."
"What?" she asked as they left the warehouse.
