The man groaned. He looked to his right, then to his left. Then he sat up and for the first time noticed Agent Q. “Where’s Agent Z?” he asked. “What’s going on? Is this some sort of joke?”
“I have no idea.” replied Agent Q. “We were kidnapped by the poacher and brought here. We went to bed and when I woke up, you were here.”
The man gasped. “Oh no!” he cried. “I must have been kidnapped by the poacher too!” then he frowned. “Where are we anyway?”
“We’re in a house at the edge of the woods,” replied Agent Q.
The two of them climbed out of the tent. Agent Q led the man to the window.
As the two looked outside, Agent M woke up. He/she spotted the two at the window and frowned. “XXXXXXXXXX, what on earth is going on? Who is that anyway?”
“This is…” Agent Q frowned. “Who are you anyway?”
“I am POTUS,” the man replied, “also known as President of the United States.”
The two Agents gasped.
“The President!” cried Agent Q.
“But how?” asked Agent M.
“I honestly have no idea.” the President replied. “I just went to sleep in my tent as usual, and when I woke up, I was here.”
“You must have been kidnapped by the Man.” Agent Q told him. “He’s probably holding you for ransom.”
“Well,” sighed the President, “I suppose you might as well show me the accommodations.”
So the two Agents showed the President the room they were trapped in. They showed him the attic and the kite, which they flew over the trail. And they took turns flying the kite with the president in the attic and standing guard downstairs.
Meanwhile, the other Agents were also by now awake. They ate the remains of the cereal for breakfast, then set off for the spot where they had seen the mysterious bird. Sure enough, once they arrived, they spied it flying high in the gentle breeze.
Agent T pulled out some binoculars. “I don’t think it’s a bird. It looks like a signal that says SOS!”
“Let me see!” Agent H grabbed the binoculars. Sure enough, this was a kite with SOS printed on it in red. “Maybe it’s the Agents!” he/she cried.
“We should find where the kite is coming from.” said Agent J. “Maybe there’s a way to cut through the woods to get there.”
So the Agents began to search the area for a way to cut through the woods. Sure enough, Agent S soon cried, “Guys! Look at this!”
