“They followed the buffaloes and their babies into the woods”

“Who did darling?” Hillary asked her daughter.

“The horrible men with guns, there was a lot of shooting, then I woke up.” Hillary smiled,

“Sounds like a very bad dream. Be on your best behaviour today as my boss, Marg is visiting.”

“OK Mummy, the buffaloes were just like the statue in her garden.”

Later, Marg and Hillary were speeding to London by train to attend a meeting with the Brigadier.

Marg revealed a small leather pouch that had been secreted in the mouth of the buffalo statue in her garden. The pouch contained a tiny electronic flash drive full of sensitive information. Diamond Jack had secreted it there before his untimely death.

  1. Loved the way you wove this one in John! Where will you tale take us next? I am really looking forward to the next chapter! Thanks for participating and I will see you next week! Be well…. ^..^

  2. I, too like how you wove this week in with the statue from last week. Clever, clever. And to be part of a dream.

    I shall get back to Brian Strong and other series as the prompts dictate. Thanks for your visit to my fiction piece. Oh, yes the internet and modern trappings can be very negative indeed.
