Jenn remarked. "At least you’re travelling within the UK and can bring

first day of her period. The class took a long train to Edinburgh then a
charted bus ride to the castle.

a triangular top and towers were not visible, the walls looked like they had a
new coat of paint.
certainly is not your generic castle, " a red-haired bearded man who
introduced Alastair Murray their guide for the castle. He led the class into a
side entrance and Chelle despite her lethargy, noticed a van with darkened
windows and a pair of men carrying a long crate out.
Lin discussed the latter's captivity last time. He noted she forgot to apply
the facial cream she invented that would loosen tape gags. Lin noted, remarking
that she was too busy focused on shopping with Natalie. Just as he was about to
change subject, a text message appeared on his phone.

with Reinhard carrying a small bag. "Diamicron," he read the packet.
"Take two a day before a meal." The other items were a pocket-sized
blood glucose meter, a lancet and a pack of strips. The doctor's order was him
to use the lancet to prick any of his fingers, attach a strip to the meter and
place it against the blood oozing out. He was to send daily readings to the

wondering if Lin's suggestion was ridiculous. Go out on a date with Richard?!
She only brought him in to the detective group due to his Eidetic memory not
for her liking him. He and his debate team have defeated mine many times. Why
should I... Jenn reached for her phone and sent him a WhatsApp message not
asking for a date. She instantly received his reply with several suggestions
where to head to.
history class had a long tour of the Castle's interior and immediate outside
then received a serious of questions and an essay set by their history teacher.
feeling tired, she completed the assignments and rested in the assigned guest
room. There was water to drink but no hot drinks. Sighing, she headed back out
but the Castle interior was a maze. "Hey," she spotted the guide
Alastair. "Where's the hot water here?" He gave her a detailed set of
directions. Chelle took the first few steps, however the steps she took brought
her to the end of a dark corridor. Wait, he said to take a left turn but there
no turning. She retraced her steps but only found a narrow corridor leading to
the right. Taking a few steps, her foot suddenly caught a loose floor panel.
Lin's plan to
cure Reinhard of diabetes was rigorous but, in his view, strict. It involved
exercising twice, not once, a week and absolute abstaining from sugary food and
high carbohydrates. After a swim with her covering more laps than he was used
to, they ate at a Cantonese outlet. "No, you can't eat those, " she
stopped him from taking the Char Siew Bao. "There too much starch in the
rice flour. Here, take more of the meaty dim sum." I really wish I could
eat that, he thought. For dessert, Lin had mango pudding while he received just
oranges that weren't too sweet. "Fruits are good for you," she
remarked. He was a fan of mango pudding and wish he was struck with this
Jenn," Richard greeted her with smile. He was dressed in all blue from
jacket to jeans. "Glad you choose the bookstores option; I love to immerse
myself in old books." Jenn only nodded wondering if she made the right
decision. Jenn did find the three bookstores helpful and purchased books for
her GCSE Literature and some for her own pleasure. Grudgingly, she accepted a
lunch with him and it was worse that she had to sit side-by-side as the lunch
crowd was packed.
finished most of his fish and chips, he turned to her and asked, "Jenn,
why do your always wear jeans and never skirts?"
Jenn threw down
the rest of her sandwich and turned annoyed. "Why you think girls must
always must wear skirts?"
replied, "No, I've just always seen you outside your school uniform
wearing skirts. Remember the debate on feminism your team won? Your speech
showed mentioned how skirts are a symbol of female power."
debate; I hardly believe in what I argue in debate." With that, the pair
launched a heated argument.
As Jenn and
Richard were arguing, Chelle stopped after feeling the loose panel. Her
thoughts of getting hot water were quickly replaced by her inquisitive
detective mind. Chelle kicked the panel twice and there was a soft creaking
sound after the second kick, revealing a fairly dark entrance to a passageway.
She recalled the tour guide never saying there were any secret tunnels here.
And he was the one who gave me directions to nowhere. She stepped inside,
finding a not-so-dark passageway. She activated the pen torchlight which gave
her enough light. The first part of this unknown area was wide enough to walk
through but soon it narrowed and her school skirt caught a protruding part from
the sides. It took her several minutes to dislodge it however part of the skirt
was torn. Oh, how I wish I had changed to practical; the teacher won't like
walked through the narrower passageway, part of her mind told her mission was
to find hot water while another told her this area was really exploring. As she
paused to debate, she heard a soft sound from the wall to her left.

platform when she thought. That was still a little unfair on my part. I should

in a music store at the oldies section.

embarrassed grin. "Yes, well my parents loved them and always played it

would expect a teen to like and I get teased for that."
mum music's taste made me love oldies. Which artist is your favourite?"
He showed his
selection of Beatles albums including With the Beatles. Jenn
scanned the shelves and picked Spirits Having Flown, an early
Bee Gees Studio album which her family did not have. The pair discussed other
bands and singer-song-writers until Richard glanced at his watch. "It's
getting late. A pretty nice outing don't you think?" He extended
heated argument over how I dress she thought. "Yes, it was nice." She
shook his hand and they parted.
stopped for two seconds then Chelle heard it again. She pressed her ear against
that section of the wall yet the sound was faint. It came and the pattern
identified that it was human-made. "Hello? Is someone there?" She
repeated the call yet no voice responded. Chelle moved further inside the
mysterious tunnel but she quickly found a wall blocking her directly. Chelle
shook her head. It's so cliche, Chelle thought stopping detectives with literal
dead ends. She exactly the wall made of cement though some parts appeared to be
wooden. Chelle struck and kicked the wall at various parts but it did not move
and she ended up slightly hurting her hands and feet.
I've got to return
to my room, Chelle sighed and turned back. As she walked back, a thought struck
her. If she accidentally found the loose panel to open up this hidden area
surely there must be another panel or something to struck. She dashed back near
the wall and searched around. She finally spotted a minute stick protruding out
from the left side wall. Gently pulling it, the wall creaked then lifted up.
Elated, Chelle moved in but found herself in a pitch-black area. As she fumbled
for the pen torchlight, the floor beneath her opened and she fell.

many times large and she hardly managed to break her fall when she struck the
ground. Ow… Chelle cried out. She did manage to get up and rubbed her bum. As

twisting a James Bond phrase. Pulling out the spec's her fellow detective just
made, it gave her enough light to proceed. There was only one place to head:
the open archway in front of her. As she entered, she found herself on a narrow
walkway with an evident chasm below. Carefully walking - it was far not easy
with her school skirt - yet she managed to reach almost the end until she heard
the sound again. It was now much louder and Chelle didn't take long to identify
that it the sound from someone gagged.
Ahead of her,
the 'bridge' parted into two: one longer route and the other, a smaller route.
She tried the longer route and the muffled sounds grew closer. There was one
larger door ahead but the lock was rusty and easily broken. As she entered, she

formal. Jenn read the
last part of Richard's text message over and over again. He had invited her to
see The Phantom of the Opera at a high-class theatre in
Birmingham. Jenn had seen this musical before only once when she was six and it
was one of her favourites - did he know that? One voice told her she should
reject the offer and stay home. Another told her it wasn't anything wrong and
he shared the love of oldies music with her. Jenn silently weighed her choices
then opened her closet. She had few dresses that matched the dress code. She
finally selected the maroon short-sleeved one. Jenn couldn't recall the last
time she wore this dress but it wasn't dirty. Along with it she added her only
pair of nude 40 denier tights for the weather not for looks.

sticking out underneath. Her wrists were bound to rings screwed to the wall
with cable ties. Her ankles were likewise secured to rings on the floor.

as well frightened face, the lower half covered with a thick black duct tape
all around her head.

Elspeth explained King Duncan I built this underground network and the hidden

Chelle quickly changed topic asking Elspeth how she came to be captured.
"This morning, two men surprised me as I got out of my residence. They
gagged me as you saw, hooded me, restrained me and I felt myself in some
vehicle. Shortly after, I was carried out and restrained as you found me."
Chelle immediately knew that was what she spotted earlier.

but with a scar on her forehead appeared. She curtly demanded to see her
sister. Fred led the way down, taking a different route that Chelle initially
did also a different one that she and Elspeth were escaping from.

a change of clothes, especially her underwear. The sun shone through the open

yanked her up. Chelle tried to snuck back but a second set of hands also pulled

found. Elspeth was half-marched, half-dragged to another room. By now, after
being gagged and re-gagged, breathing was a continual difficulty for her. Her
wrists, retied, were sore as the cable ties bit further into her wrists. As
Elspeth wondered, she decided to fake choking.

the woman tossed the blanket down near her sister. "You may wish to lie
down, although I doubt whether you will find that comfortable after what I am
going to do next."
It was obvious
that Elspeth was going to be tied up again, and anchored to the ring in the
wall somehow. She sat on the blanket with her knees drawn up to one side and
looked expectantly up at her captors. Edine ordered Fred to remove the cable
ties and Elspeth used the freedom to re-tie her dress strap though her modesty
was not covered . Her captors guffawed softly but said nothing.

with a penknife. She grasped Elspeth’s dress by the hem and drove the point of
the knife into the side with a ripping sound. Involuntarily Lisette drew her

Elspeth had to

It penetrated past mid-way, almost to the back of her throat, and stayed there
pressing down on her tongue. She heard a faint metallic squeal as her twin
turned screws at the back that tightened the helmet around her head and face.
The broad metal band with the silk-wrapped gag passed across her lower face to
the back of her head, and to it was attached another band that went over her
head vertically. It was bifurcated to pass on either side of her nose and, when
the screws tightened, drawing those bands together. Her lips were uncomfortably
close to the metal, but all that she could feel on her tongue was the soft

The medieval gag felt embedded in her mouth, pressed against her upper palate,
pushing down on her tongue, and threatening to choke her. All she could do was
to bite on the thick cloth. She tried to move her hands. Nothing happened. She

At least the weight would not be so unbearable. Carefully, she lowered herself
to her side, falling helplessly the last foot, and tried to arrange herself
with her knees curled up and her head on the other end of the blanket. But her
weight pressed the bridle against the floor and made the angle of the shaft
with the protective cloth shift in her mouth. It brought on a fit of choking
and she had to raise her head to relieve the pressure.
The fresh tears
streaming down her face almost caused her to miss the dull gleam of metal near
her shoulder. She had to lift her head a little further back. And all the time
the metal frame pressed down on her head, giving her a headache, making her
thoughts disjointed and leading her into despair.

scream despite a dry throat and kick. "Oh, stop it lass," he growled.
Pulling out the last cable tie he had, her ankles were secured together.
Suddenly, he reached under her skirt, yanking down her tights causing Chelle to
yelp. Caught by the cable ties, he cut them off. Chelle's tape gag was
temporarily removed and her tights wound around her head before a fresh tape
was applied. "Nice legs girl," Rich remarked and began to touch them.

had given her. After four twists, she got it and with her fingers, managed to
cut away her wrist manacles, then her ankles and slowly cut off the painful
scold’s bridle. Leaving the room, she heard muffled cries and found Chelle, who
was still being caressed by Rich. With one large swing, Elspeth knocked out the
repairman. With in minutes, Chelle was freed, not before she squirted ink from
the special gadget. "Ok, leave him, let's get out of here."
