The Property of Lee Harrison Peeters

Chapter  Twenty Seven: Kidnapped

Groups of men have scattered amongst the woods. Amongst them is Joshua. They walk along the road when one of them stops. The snow along the road has mostly gone. Inside the woods it is white. One of the men at the front of the group turns and gestures to the others to scatter. Hiding in the woods, the men watch a group of British troops led by several officers on horses marching along the road. When they have passed the men come back on the road and continue on. All except for Joshua. He is still in the woods. Behind him the stranger stands, a knife pointed at Joshua’s neck.

The stranger: “That was a good decision.”

Joshua: “You won’t get away with this.”

The stranger: “Looks to me like your friends have bigger fish to fry.”

The stranger ties Joshua’s hands behind his back and helps him onto his extra horse. The stranger mounts his own horse and grabbing the reigns, slips along the road and into the fog of night.
