APRIL A-Z 2012 'Approaching Zero' - "...mused"



For APRIL A-Z 2012, I decided on a single theme. In fact, it's a single story, broken into 26 bite-sized chunks of precisely 100 words. Each day's instalment begins using a word starting with the current letter of the alphabet and ends with a word commencing with the letter for the following day.

I hope you like it enough to look in each day and follow the story.....!
(new readers, please click back to 'A' to follow the plot!)



'APPROACHING ZERO' Part 13 - '...mused'


…mused. The mission was clouded in secrecy, but it involved the Royal family, which made ‘Operation Regal’ more than a play on words and that the stakes were of national importance. He knew well enough that protocols would have to be breached to get this pretty little thing to some place of safety.

As for himself, he was a dead man; had been since he’d discovered Simpson’s true identity and found himself on the wrong end of a bad deal. Perhaps the rumour was right after all; the Duke and Duchess of Windsor were not merely puppets of the Nazi’s…


…..to be continued!

  10. I went back to the beginning. What a trip back in time, well orchestrated by those beautiful black and white photos to punctuate the precise telling of this noir drama. Thank you for visiting, but now I must return to find out what happens next to Jack and Evie. Will they find happiness and save this Royal Operation by Z, will it be zany? a chance in a zillion? Or put your gentle readers to zzz? Not a chance. This was clever and fun. And thanks for visiting my blog.
