When he regained a fraction of consciousness he heard the alarm buzzer. His blindfold had fallen off and he could see he was in fact in a basement. His hands were tied behind his back but nothing had been taken off him. He knew he had a knife in his pocket. Looking at the ground he saw it had conveniently fallen out of his pocket. “Yes!” Shimming around he grabbed the knife, opened it and cut the rope that held his hands. After cutting the rope holding his feet, he was free. Getting to his feet he peeked through the door to the main level. The hallway was deserted and he could hear the siren more clearly. Where was that coming from? He found the door that was marked exit and escaped. Outside he was completely disoriented. But he still ran. His head throbbed but he ran for his life. Pushing his officer in distress button dispatches voice twirled out of his earpiece.
“Lieutenant, how can we help?”
Keith fumbled to push the talk button. “I was kidnapped and have managed to escape. Can you send the closest unit to pick me up?”
“Right away Lieutenant!”
He listened as the request went out over the radio. That’s when he saw the glow over the energy station. What the hell? A police car screamed around the corner and he walked to meet it. A quick exchange of wellness exchanged and he sent them to evacuate the neighborhood as he ran to the door of the energy plant.
