MYSTERIOUS ISLAND (6)

by John Yeo

Racing down into the atmosphere, the unidentified object crashed, leaving behind one heck of a huge crater and a plume of smoke that could be seen from miles around.”

The news presenter went on to describe the ensuing chaos. All flights from London’s Heathrow airport were cancelled until further notice. Marg snapped off the rolling news programme and immediately contacted the Brigadier’s organisational London number for instructions. Marg was informed transport would arrive to take her to Dover, where she would meet Captain Scarlett on the super yacht “Bue Dreams”. A limousine called at Marg’s office promptly for the journey, suitcases were stowed in the boot and Marg was on her way to the docks. As she settled back in luxurious comfort, the car picked up speed cruising through the countryside.

Two very powerful motorcycles screamed alongside the car forcing the driver off the road. Marg kept her head, ducked low, and reached for her cellphone. Suddenly the driver put his foot down and took off leaving the motorcyclists behind, neither of them noticed the innocuous car close behind.

MYSTERIOUS ISLAND (5)

by John Yeo

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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~

MYSTERIOUS ISLAND (4)

by John Yeo

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The house of Don Francisco sat in a remote part of the desert.
Very luxurious and secure, Marg knew of the connection between the Brigadier and the Don, she had visited before with the team. She sat stunned as the express letter was thrust into her hands and the courier melted away into the crowd. The summons came out of the blue, where to meet the helicopter that soon whisked her away to Morocco, for a private emergency conference with the two men. Security was at a very high level and men with guns and viscous looking dogs were everywhere.
Marg was feted and the proposition was outlined. Marg was ordered to return to the mysterious island and undergo special training in infiltration methods. We need you to get information and to join some special forces to bring down our rival business associates. Marg looked askance. “Do I have a choice?” The Brigadier smiled knowingly.
Suddenly there was a huge explosion outside~

MYSTERIOUS ISLAND (3)

by John Yeo

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As the year wound down to a close they gathered around the table and raised their glasses.
Marg could hardly believe the way time had flashed by since her recruitment into this shadowy financial organisation. These people were her colleagues and friends celebrating a year long programme. The recruitment process had been intense, the six-month training period with her fellow operatives had been hard and psychologically demanding. Marg had come through it all with flying colours and the Brigadier, who she had first met on this mysterious island was delighted.
The operation to infiltrate and destroy an illegal business cartel had gone off perfectly, the leader was eliminated and his assets and infrastructure taken over by the Brigadier. Marg now comfortably off was sworn to silence on pain of death, still in the clutches of the Brigadier.
As a successful private investigator with various other business interests she now mixed with a variety of very wealthy clients and friends. Then one fateful day to her horror…….
