There once was a man named Bolly. Bolly had a very good life. Bolly had 18 children and 3 wives. Yes, at one time. Bolly's children were all seven and they all had strange names. Suukie, Jonico, Terensha, Hannishic, Rehondia, Kenill, Quinoit, Relando and Hugis were all of his girls. Rentic, Jornora, Kelpinic, Wenstle, Virgiolic, Penicanima, Qwerty, Contron, and Gegreolop were all of his boys. All of his 18 children were from one wife. Her name was Kinslie. The other wives names were Veronitic and Cindy. Kinslie liked the idea of one man having three wives. But only because she was a little wacky. I mean c'mon, She had 18 kids. On the other hand, Veronitic and Cindy Hated the idea. They wanted someone who would only love one person, and that one person only. One day Veronitic and Cindy confronted Bolly. "Okay Bolly, We all love you, but we don't know if you love all of us. We want a man who loves one woman and only one woman, not a man who loves three women and divides his love." Cindy Said. "Veronitic." He said trying to calm her. "I'M CINDY!" Cindy exclaimed in a scream. "Whatever, I love all of you equally and I can't choose just one of you." "Well you have to" Veronitic said. "Let me think about it" He said. And with that, they all went up to bed. But they made Bolly sleep on the couch. The next day Bolly had his answer. "Well" The two women said at once. "I choose, Kinslie." "WHAT?! WHY WOULD YOU CHOOSE HER?" "Why wouldn't I choose her? She's the mother of my children, the one that pays my bills and most importantly the one that isn't complaining about this." He said matter of factly. "Now I would appreciate it if you girls packed up and left." The women went upstairs and they packed their things. They brought their suitcases down and said goodbye to the 18 kids. They picked up their suitcases and went out the door. Later that night while everyone was sleeping, Suukie heard a weird noise coming from her parents room. She opened her bedroom door a crack and saw a woman  walk out of her parents room. This was not her mother, it was Cindy. Maybe they got back together She thought. Without thinking anything more of this, she went back to bed. In the morning when all the siblings were at the table waiting for breakfast and it wasn't there like usual. "Where's our breakfast?" Kenill Said. "And our parents" Quinoit said back. "We should go check on them" Wenstle said. So Wenstle, Rentic, Qwerty and Contron went up to check on their parents. They weren't there, but something was there. A note that read, "If you are reading this, it means you have noticed Bolly and Kinslie are gone. Well, they are. And Most likely forever. Say nothing about this, Understand. Because, I do know where you live." "I don't like what this is leading too." Rentic said. The 4 kids ran downstairs to show their siblings, but they were gone. "Now I really don't like where this is going!" Rentic said. "Calm down, they probably just went searching, lets go look" Wenstle said. As they walked out the door they saw a van speed out of their drive-way. "FOLLOW THAT VAN! HURRY, C'MON!" Qwerty yelled in fright. "It's no use, Qwerty. They are going too fast. It's impossible to catch them." Wenstle said sadly. "Well, Are we just gonna stand here while 14 of our siblings are being kidnapped and possibly hurt?!" Rentic said . "No one said that Renny, Don't be stupid!" Qwerty yelled. "Wow, I think you are all being stupid by fighting when our whole family is in trouble! Smarten up and let's think of something to do!" Contron said being the responsible one. "Whatever" Qwerty said, even though they were all thinking it. "Okay so, I was thinking. And If we go downtown where everyone knows everyone we can probably find someone who knows the owner of that van." "Good idea, Contron. Let's do that." Qwerty said. At that moment they all split up. Wondering if they would ever see each other again. Their house was right on a corner of a 4-way intersection. Rentic went down Old Mill street. On this street he would go to four houses. One was their old babysitter's house. They called her Nanny Annie. He would also stop at his Aunt's house. Aunt Karen. He would stop at two friends houses too. Kara and Caroline. They were his best friends, that were girls. He approached Nanny Annie's house. He knocked on the door. "Rentic? Do your parents know you are here?" Nanny Annie Asked. "Well, Not exactly Nanny Annie. YA See. My parents were kidnapped. And Wenstle, Qwerty, Contron and I think Cindy and Veronitic did it." Renny responded. "Why would you boys think that? And what do the others think.?" "Well Nanny, Suukie said she saw Cindy walking out of our parents bedroom the night after daddy "cut ties" with her. And We don't know what the others think. They were kidnapped too. Which is also why I am here. To ask if you have saw a black van." He asked, feeling he over explained the situation. "Umm.. Oh." Nanny said curiously. "Yeah so.. Have you seen a black van by any chance?" He responded, questioning himself. "Umm, No, No. I haven't seen a ..black.. van. So. Anyway, You should be going. I wouldn't wanna hold up your search. So I'll being seeing YA Hun." Nanny said hesitantly. She shut the door in his face. Renny walked off. Did Nanny Annie Do it? Was his family inside her small shack? No, No. It couldn't be. He convinced himself. But Why was Nanny acting so strange? She never acted like that before. Was she capable of even thinking of kidnapping someone? It just wasn't Nanny. Impossible. But this thought still kept appearing in his head. As he walked down the road he tried to shake off the thought. Approximately ten minutes later he arrived at his Aunt Karen's house. "Renny Boy! Hey sonny. Haven't seen you in a while have we?" His Uncle Roger said. "No, No you haven't Uncle Roger. And I'm sorry to be rude but I need to make this quick. My father and mother have been kidnapped. And So have 14 of my siblings." He stated back. "Oh No! What do you think has happened?" He asked. "Karen! Get out here. Renny Boy is here." He called to Aunt Karen. "Well, YA see. Dad broke up with his two girlfriends and stayed with mom. And Suukie swears she saw Cindy walk out of our parents room the night after dad broke up with her. The next morning they were gone. Four of us went upstairs to look, and when we went back downstairs 14 of our siblings were gone too." He said remembering every moment of the horrid morning."My, oh my." Karen said in her western accent which they were all used to by now. "Have you gone to the police? Come on in Renny Boy, sit down. Talk to us." Uncle Roger said. "No I haven't called the police. I'm too scared too. It was hard enough telling anyone. We found a note. Saying if we tell anyone, they know where we live and they could get us. And No. I can't stay I don't have time. I just wanna ask you a question if I could." Renny said back, feeling bombarded with questions. "Well. I think you should call the police Ren. It's the best thing to do. You could stay with us too. If you wanted too. But it's an option. Completely up to you. But We would feel be-." "Wait!" Ren Yelled, interrupting her. "Let me talk! Lives could be on the line here, people!" Renny yelled feeling annoyed. "Oh yeah, sorry babe. We have a tendency to talk a lot in situations like this. So anyway, Continue." Aunt Karen Said. "Have you seen a black van?" Renny asked. "You mean that one?" Uncle Roger said Pointing at the black van in their drive-way. "That's it! Why do you have the van? Have you done something with my family? Are you kidnappers? Let me inside." Renny Yelled. "Renny, Honey. We didn't do anything, we are just as concerned as you are. and lower your voice. You are raising too much ruckus! A lot of people have those vans. They are the most popular van around. Cheap and stylish." Aunt Karen said as a mother would talk to a child. "Oh. Sorry Guys. I better go. Umm. Bye Aunt Kare- Kare. Bye Uncle Rogey." As Ren walked away Karen and Roger watched him, feeling concerned for the poor boy. And Still having so many questions for him. The next stop was Kara Dominick's house. He knocked on the door and a little girl answered it. He presumed it was Kara's little sister. "Hi there, mister!" She said in a cute, squeaky voice. "Hey Hun, Is Kara here? And If she is, may I please talk to her?" He asked in a sweet, calm voice. "Yes she is. Shes watching me while my parents are out on a trip. I'll go get her for you." She said as she skipped away. Karen was one year older than Renny, and even though they were best friends she sometimes gets mad at people for stupid reasons. Rentic was hoping that she would be happy to see him and not slam the door in his face much like Nanny Annie had done two hours before. "Well hi there, Rentic Knowlton. What brings you here?" She said ever-so sweetly. "Hi Kara. I'm here to ask a serious question and I don't really have time to waste." He said trying to return the sweetness. "Oh, Why sure. Ask away Rentic." She said "Thank you! Okay. By any chance have you seen a black van? That looks suspicious? You see, a lot of my family was kidnapped this morning. And We need to find this black van." Ren Said. "Well, oh my. No I haven't seen a suspicious one. Well, Not really. The only one I have questioned is Karen's, Down the street. That van has been going out at 2:30-3:00 every morning waking me up. What could someone being doing that early in the morning?!" She said over explaining. "I.. don't.. know." He said thinking about it and staring into space. "Thanks anyway Karen.. I mean Kara." "Yeah, It's okay.. Renny? See YA later?" She said concerned by his strange actions. "Yeah, See YA Kara." As he walked away he was thinking about Nanny Annie and Aunt Karen and Uncle Roger. All of them were acting strange, yet not extremely scared. Especially Aunt Karen. Everything was pointing towards her. Her sister, Brother-in-law and 14 nieces and nephews were kidnapped and she only asked a few questions. She had a black van like the one seen in the drive-way. She has been seen driving early in the morning unlike anyone else. "This is ridiculous" He whispered to himself. Family doesn't do that to each other, Do they? Ren's next stop was at Caroline Skillend's house. He rang the door bell. Christmas music came about. Sleigh ride. His favorite song. While he was humming, a tall, lean woman Came to the door. "Hello? Hello? Young man? What would you like?" He was thinking about the situation again. "Young man!" She yelled. "Oh, Oh I'm so sorry ma'am, I was thinking about certain things. Is Caroline home? I'm Rentic Knowlton." He stated feeling stupid. "Are you a friend?" She asked with high concerns for her daughter. "Yes I am Mrs. Skillend." He responded. "Okay, come in and sit on the couch. She will be right down." She invited him in and he sat down on the couch. "Renny? What are you doing at my house?" Caroline asked sort of creeped out. "My family, Or some of it anyway, Has been kidnapped. I need to know if you have seen a suspicious black van." Ren said relieved. "Nope. Sorry Renny. I can't help. Bye now." She was just like Kara. Sometimes happy, sometimes not. And this time, not. A different girl approached him. She sat next to him on the couch. Caroline had mentioned a step sister that was the same age as her. He thought she was beautiful. "Follow me." She whispered in his ear. Her voice. So soft. He loved everything about it. The pitch, the squeakiness, the smell of her breath. Peppermint. He assumed she had gum. He followed her to out behind her house. "I figured we would be questioned." She said. They were sitting under a tarp held up by fat twigs. "You were expecting this?" Rentic asked. "Yes." She said while adjusting the tarp. "How did you know you were going to be questioned?" Rentic asked wondering if she, or her family, had something to do with the crime. "Police officers have been roaming around, up and down the streets for hours now. Everyone is being questioned. We aren't THAT different. We were obviously gonna be questioned too." She said. "Police officers? What?! How do they know? I could be killed for that! Did you do this?" He said this angrily but at the same time, desperate for answers. "No! I wouldn't do something like that Rentic! Never ever!" She said, calming him. "Really? Swear on your life?" He said. Somehow the right answer to this question would make him feel so much better. "I swear on my life, and yours too. And I would never want you to die, Rentic." This did calm him. "Oh, Good. And By the way, I didn't catch your name." Rentic said. The girl stood up and was about to run back to the house. "That's because I didn't throw it t you, Hun." She turned round and ran back to her house. Ren stood up and watched her as she entered the back door of her house.
