Where Do We Go From Here? – Chapter Six

I have made the decision to take one of my micro flash fiction stories and flesh it out into a serial. The story that I chose to do this with is “Where Do We Go From Here?” (https://theworldofflashfiction.wordpress.com/2012/07/14/where-do-we-go-from-here/) . I have no idea how long this serial is going to be. It will have some twists and turns, and it will end when it ends! Enjoy!

Scene: A private office in a luxury commercial office building. The woman known as Karen is seated at an antique desk, studying an open file in her laptop. She smiles to herself. Everything is going according to plan. An elite security team was sent in, and did their work. They had no idea that she knew that they were aware of being videotaped as they removed the listening devices. It really wasn’t who knew what, or what one did not know, that mattered. It was how one used the information that was important. Satisfied, she closed the laptop and locked it back in the secure drawer in the credenza. The one on her desk was for show only, but it served its purpose from time to time.

She picked up her phone, clicking on a name. Across town, in another office, a phone was picked up. “Annie, this is Karen. I just wanted to check and see how you were doing. Is everything okay? Is there anything that I can do?”

“Karen, how good to hear from you! Thank you for recommending such a great security team! As you know, they found nothing. That makes me feel a lot better!”

“Things will straighten out once Karl gets back. He is still coming back next week, yes?”

“Yes, he is still coming back next week. Then we have a week to take care of some things here, then we will be off to Trinidad for a week. I cannot wait!”

“I would love to take you both out to dinner before you leave for Trinidad. Would that be possible?”

“Certainly! We would love that! Our evening are free, so just name the date, time, and place!”
“I am thinking Paolo’s next Wednesday at 6 pm. How does that sound?”
“Excellent! We will be there!”
“See you then! Take care – and please feel free to call if you need anything. I am worried about you!”

“Karen, Don’t worry! I just have an over-active imagination! See you nest Wednesday!”

As she hung up, Annie thought to herself: “Karen, you have so much more to worry about than you will ever know!”

Meanwhile, a call was being placed from Stuttgart. “Has she placed the reservations yet? Okay, make sure that we have people in the hotel, and in the surrounding area. We want to take this woman down now!”

    Bonnie, I am really starting to feel an adult Hardy Boys thematic sense with these. And, that is a great thing . . . I tore through them voraciously way back when, and there’s this double-site Narrator of someone playing on-the-outside coy and very much in the know. Look forward to these as they progress. Best to Ya! ~Jordan
