If you missed last week’s episode, you missed a great one. You can watch the replay here.
As always, the ladies of the podcast created some great pieces of writing from this sprint prompt. Today’s Prompt is five words: burn, giant, profile, sphere, research. We really enjoyed Tina’s take on the prompt, and we think you will as well! Enjoy, and make sure you reach out to her to let her know you want her to finish this story!
“Am I supposed to burn this now?” asked Jack, holding up the piece of paper Roger had given him, calling it “research on the client”.
Roger’s brow wrinkled, and he pinched the bridge of his nose. Jack half expected him to pull a bottle out of a drawer and take a big gulp. Jack would bet money that’s exactly what he would do the minute Jack left.
“This guy is a ghost. He has no history, he’s not in any system anywhere. No driver’s license, no titles to anything. No social security number.”
Jack looked back at the page, ignoring the giant white space on the lower half and concentrating on what there was in the profile. He was an expert marksman, he executed with military precision, and he was ruthless.
“He may be a ghost in the states, but we live on a big sphere. Have you checked with interpol?”
“I have a call in. Seems, they’ve all gone home for the day. The French aren’t the workaholics we apparently are.”
“What about the emergency number?” Jack asked.
“I hadn’t gotten to it, and now I’m handing it over to you. It’s your headache now.”
“Thanks,” said Jack, wondering if Roger was even capable of recognizing sarcasm.
“Your Welcome,” said Roger.
Well, that answers that question, thought Jack, as he rose from the chair.
“Shall I keep you updated,” Jack asked before Roger could say the usual.
“Yes, yes, keep me updated.” Roger waved at Jack without looking up, his mind already focused on the next problem.
Roger wasn’t cut out to be a spy, that much was clear. Which is why they had Jack, who fit every stereotype ever typed onto a page, including the fact that he always got his man.
