A spy on the run (Friday Fictioneers)

October 15, 2020

The disguise circuits on her ship were working overtime. A literal ship. Clever. No one would clue into the real hardware behind the camouflage. Time to make her move. She walked with her head down, collar pulled up and cap low over her forehead to avoid any cameras. These humans had ways to track a person. Closed Circuit TV and cell phones in every hand. Her contact said to meet at the café on the corner. All she needed was the datadisk.

A laser bolt burst into the tree trunk near her head.

Crud. The QTS had tracked her.

Run.

  1. Doctor Who has his phone box. She has her boat. Perhaps, though, she shouldn’t have parked it in the centre of town?

  2. Damn, that pink paint gave her ship away. What’s the back up plan?

  3. Those QTS are cleverer than she gives them credit for.

    • Indeed, she might have thought her escape was too easy. She’ll have to be smarter if she wants to escape their clutches again

  4. Dear Laurie,

    A spy on a mission. You have me wondering what her mission is. Nicely done scene setup and build of tension.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  5. I really liked the way you built the tension in so few words. Very well done!

    p.s. I wrote my comment before I saw Rochelle’s.

  6. A sharp QTS operator deciphered the numbers on the sign (Tardis R Us)! 🙂

  7. Love a good sci-fi. Engaging story, Laurie!

  8. Fun story. Not sure if the Not My Problem/Douglas Adam reference is intentional, but either way I’m sure he would approve this one!

  9. Spy work is always having one eye on everything!
