When I got close to his house, I heard noircat sound! So I rang a bell and a stranger came out. And behind him, I saw noircat who I was looking for! GREEN EYES! So I asked stranger that where did he get a noircat and he said that when he was shopping in downtown, this noircat and dog were walking around so he gave some food to them and then he returned to his house, the noir cat was following him. He did not know that he was following so he tried to return him but he did not go anywhere.

So Mr. Stranger, noircat, and I went to Maggie’s house and gave noircat back. I came back to my place and looked through the evidence that client gave to me, and figured out that the black dog with Groom was tried to tell us Noircat was following Mr. Stranger.

And I heard good news from Maggie. Right after Noircat came back, the noircat was starting to appear on the birthday cards that she received.

I guess when Noircat goes far away from his house, all factors that are related to him would be disappear. I’m glad he is back! :)


About Noircat.

Noircat… After I found some evidence of where did he go, I tried to figure out why did he follow a stranger man and where are they now. As I was struggling with these questions, I got an e-mail about Maggie’s Noircat.

It explains his characteristics briefly. hopefully it helps to find him.

After I see the CCTVs, I went back to Fredericksburg downtown to search for more evidence. This time, I printed out the picture of him and went into the stores to ask if they have seen noircat before.

I went in to one of the market store and show his picture to owner.

From the  conversation with owner, I could figure out where the stranger is living. So I went to his right away!

Where are you going Noircat?

I tried to find the CCTVs around the UMW. I found that there is downtown around the school, so I went there and looked at all the CCTVs and I found a very important scene so I captured it.

Can you see that Noircat is walking with the dog that I saw on the video that was taken from Groom. However, I found one more scene from the CCTV which was Noircat is following a stranger. Here’s the scene that I captured from the CCTV.

With the last picture I became assured that Noircat is now with stranger. He might follow him or someone took him.

Where does he live? If Noircat followed him, why did he follow?

New Case: Where is Noircat?

After I came back from Los Angeles, I got a case about Noircat. Where did he go? What happened to him? Got lots to figure out.

The first evidence that I got was a video that Groom is asking his dog to tell hime about what his dog did to Noircat. But there wasn’t enough information that I can figure out Noircat’s position. But so weird, why the Noircat Tracking app is not working? And why is all the Noircat disappeared on the birthday cards?

Later on I gat a photo of Noircat, who was standing in front of UMW’s ITCC!

But he could not get in to it to meet Martha Brutis or Maggie Black. So he tried to get back to home but he got lost or someone thought he was a alley cat so he/she took him to his/her house.

Hopefully, I will get more information about him.

Fourth Status of the Case.

I looked through Misha’s diary, I found a note that was inserted in the diary.


What is this? Why is it in Russian? I converted to English and it was “The beacon does not shine on its own base.” I searched for this sentence, and it was Korean proverb. Why did you put it in there and send it to me? What is the reason?

Few minutes later, one thought was flashed in my head.

Why didn’t I think of that when I first received the letter from the man. He was watching me going to his house. He was near by that house!

I drove back to his house and went in. There’s might a secret room that I did not find. So I push wall and bookshelves as I saw on the mystery movies.

Found it. Why didn’t I think of that when I came here. So, I went down, quietly and look for Groom. He was there. He was tied up tight on the chair. I untied him and looked for man.

“He went out. I don’t know where he went.” Groom said to me.
“Okay, then let’s go to my car. I would be safer than here.”

Groom and I went back quickly and drove fast I can to my place.

Later on, I figured out that Misha found her brother and stopped him. She forgave Groom, she does not want Groom to get hurt.

I don’t get why she forgave him. Her heart was wounded because of him. She wasn’t able to live her daily life. But Abigail told me that she loved Groom truly with all of her heart. True love.. What is that feeling?

Misha’s Diary.

Got Misha’s Diary!



Through this dairy, I finally figured out the reason for attack. It was Groom broke up with Misha. Hopefully, I can find Groom as soon as possible.

One good news is that I reached Bond. Luckily he did not get hurt or anything. I asked for him to contact him every hour. I hired a bodyguard just in case.
