Finally, we have heard from Blackbeard. Rodney and Arlo are safe. Blackbeard will only return Rodney and Arlo  if we write him a letter telling him why we need them back in Kingfisher Class. We sent our letters off to Blackbeard, but we haven't heard anything! So, we have decided to set a trap to catch him!
