Silently as the people watched, the black hawk helicopter lifted into the air
The detonation of a rocket laid waste to one of the outhouses. Under attack and in danger, Marg and the team were quickly whisked away through a door leading to a flight of stairs down to a concrete bunker in the basement. Ripples of shock visibly ran through everyone as they raced down the stairs through a maze of tunnels emerging an hour later in a farmhouse, about a mile away. Marg managed to hitch a ride to the airport where she was soon safely on a flight back to England.
Later, Marg heard the sad news, several members of the Don’s family had been killed in the surprise raid. The plans laid at the meeting were to be put into action as revenge for this insult was now a matter of urgency. Marg was expected to report to the mysterious Island for training. The Brigadier was hopping mad~

  1. And so your fascinating tale of espionage and intrigue continues. I’ve just had a look at your last two episodes and I like what I read very much. You have a definite knack for cliff hangers! I’ll look forward to next week’s episode.(I do still intend to join in with this soon, John. I’ve just been too busy with my writing this week to do this one.)

    • I look forward to reading your work my friend ~ Take your time the important stuff before the lighthearted practice ~~ I thank you for your encouragement and your comments Millie ~ Have a nice day 🙂

  2. I can just see the Brigadier hopping around mad! Love it! Thanks again for participating! I cannot wait to see what you do with the upcoming Monday’s prompt and opening line! Be well you two! ^..^

  3. It’s hotting up! I hope Marg gets to go on a mission soon – I wonder what revenge the Brigadier has in mind (I guess it depends on next week’s photo!)?
