I just wrote a letter to Ebenzer about giving us 250$ for the kid. He will send a letter back.
Ok, I can´t wait to get this kid off of our hands!
Bill and Sam decide to kidnap Ebenzerś red head son. They figure since he is rich they will give him a 1,000$ for the kid. Bill then kidnaps the Kid, which they call Red Chief. Little did they now that Red Chief was not a easy kid to handle.
Two desprate men, I would like to take my child off youŕ hands in exchange for 250$. Meet me at my house at night. Sincerely, Ebenzer
It seems like a pretty good deal. We have the 250$.
The boy, Johnny threatened Bill and Sam about hurting them.Both Sam and Bill could not take it anymore.
Yes, for about 10 minutes
Here is the money. You think you could hold him down while we get away?
Sam and Bill decide to write a letter to Ebenzer saying that they will give him back his kid in exchange for 250$.
This kid will be a easy target because his family is rich!
Ebenzer sent a letter back to them saying that he will take his child of their hands in exchange for their 250$.Bill wanted to do it because he was desperate to get the kid off there hands so he convinced Sam to do it.
They brought Johnny back to his house and paid Ebenzer the money. Johnny wanted to stay with Sam and Bill so his Dad had to hold him while they escape.
PLEASE DON´T LEAVE ME SNAKE EYE!
The theme of this story is Don´t Judge a Book by it´s cover. I know this because in the text it states ¨Bill and me figured and me figured that Ebenzer will melt down for a ransom of two thousand dollars to a cent.¨, This helps me understand that Bill and Sam just care that they are wealthy and not about the Johnny´s behavior.
MAKE IT STOP!
I should of researched him before I kidnapped him.
