Kidnapping in Greendale

A Five Squad Adventure


“I thought you were going to be catching all your own food on this trip,” Karen said to Kento and Earl.

“Well, we haven’t had time to go fishing yet,” said Kento.

“Mmm-mmm,” Earl mumbled through a mouthful of food.     

The Five Squad members were sitting around a campfire, munching sandwiches that Karen had prepared while the boys had been setting up the tents.

“Mr. Colin Hedgcome? Everybody says he’s, you know…,” she said, tapping her head. “A bit barmy. He sees things that aren’t really there; stuff like that.”

“You don’t know him like we do, though,” said Earl. “He’s all right.”

(Earl, being eight years old, was the youngest of the five friends.)

“Yes, he’s our friend,” said Christopher. “It’s unkind to talk like that about him, when you don’t know him.”

“Sorry. I’m just telling you what people say,” said Karen.

Karen, age eleven, had recently returned to Sheldon. Two years prior, her parents had moved to a city nearby because of her father’s work. With Sheldon growing and changing, however, her father was transferred back to Sheldon.
