7. Doing A Mel Gibson

If you've ever seen the movie Ransom starring Mel Gibson you'd know that the plot involves turning a kidnapping on it's head and taking control. That is exactly what I intended to do. I was full of sorrow [are you convinced yet :Þ ??], but yet I was angry and fed-up with the whole situation. It had been over a week and still no instructions had been received and no practical actions had been taken. It was time to start the ball rolling.

I sent a message to the abductors (via their anonymous Hotmail account) worded as follows:

You should be aware his family is not too happy. Attached are photos of his parents, brothers and sisters when they heard that some vile degenerate had aliennapped him.

For your sake I think it might be a good idea to make sure he gets out alive and in one piece.


I informed Alien's family (whom he brought me over to meet once to get his father's blessing for the relationship) of his predicament and took a collage of photographs. I attached this with the message. It looks like this:

I then got sent this message:

We were ready to do the exchange, but the pink guy is enjoying himself too much and has asked to stay a bit longer.

They attached this photo:

Obviously the part about Alien enjoying himself is a lie. He's only comfortable dressing up like that when he's around me, not some evil ET-napper! Now I'm concerned about what he's going to be like when he returns. He might insist that I buy him men's underthings instead. *shudder* the thought of it gives me goosebumps.

After this there was no communication for a week. ONE WHOLE WEEK!! I was scared that they had terminated Alien with a needle due to my increasing boldness, but I felt good after that for standing up for myself, and as it turned out my courage and confidence was a good thing.

Then on Friday the 2nd of August 2002 at 9:29 am and 28 seconds they sent us this message:

The Alien will be in the reception of building 2 after 13:00 today.

Please have payment ready for the exchange.
