KIDNAPPERS AND COUGARS
by John Yeo
The snatch had taken place as planned and the day dawned with Lord Percy, bound hand and foot in a remote cabin in the mountains.
Jim Murrell and Eddy Car were rubbing their hands together at the prospect of a large ransom that would soon be extorted from his parents, Lord and Lady Rochester.
Jim remarked to Eddy, ‘We’ll leave young Percy here and drive back into town to make our financial demands.’
‘What about our young pay packet? Are we just going to leave him here tied up?’ asked Eddy.
‘Yeah, we’re only going to be gone for a few hours. He’ll be fine.’
An hour later the two villains were in a motel about 50 miles away negotiating a pickup place for £50,000 ransom, with Lord Rochester.
Little did they know that they’d been followed by a middle aged vamp of a woman who had had Percy in her sights for quite some time. The moment they’d driven away, she entered the cabin and released Lord Percy and snatched him away to a luxury hotel where she proceeded to seduce him. Percy was overwhelmed with her charms, he’d never met a lady like this before and they got along like a house on fire.
Meanwhile the kidnappers returned to the cabin where they were aghast to find their captive missing. They were later arrested after a mysterious tipoff to the police.
Lord Percy and his newfound friend left the country together. Meanwhile the story broke as the headlines screamed.
A NOTORIOUS COUGAR ABDUCTS KIDNAP VICTIM.
The couple were quietly married and in spite of the obvious age gap and Lady Nellie’s reputation they lived happily ever after.
