Finish the story begins with:

He thought he found the perfect hiding spot.”

Marg laughed out loud when this cryptic message was delivered to her iPhone, from Hillary, her PA and partner in the UK. Her favourite feline was creating havoc in the house as usual.

The smile quickly died when she realised this message had a dual interpretation. The fake Professor was back in England and revealing much, he was making a deal with the Brigadier’s office and warning against the operation at Miners Hill.
“It’s a very sophisticated trap, financed by drug money”

Meanwhile as the team approached the target from several different directions with a fusillade of fire power, including hand-held rocket launchers, they moved in on the attack. The fighting was fierce as the ground teams moved in. Marg and her team with Delphine at the controls of the little bird helicopter, were shocked to hear the news that Paul Strang’s helicopter was shot down and missing.

  1. No! What happens next? Where could that helicopter be? Loved the way you wove this wacky photo and opening into your story John. Be well my friend, and stay tuned for what could happen next! ^..^

  2. You can’t leave it there, not even knowing if Paul is alive or dead! You always find some clever way to weave the prompt into your ongoing story 🙂

  3. Clever way to use the prompt, John. A lot of action in this episode. Too bad a helicopter and pilot were last. Looking forward to next week’s episode. 🙂 — Suzanne
