I am considering writing a non scheduled narrative. I have time sitting while I wait for thing to perk on the computer but I can’t spare the time to write everyday or to commit to write everyday. So I’m wondering If you guys would like with arranging for word press to email you when something new shows up.
I can also show you what I mean in a kind of preview. So try this.
“Agent Mission,” the somewhat older man said as he entered her office.
“Yes Senator Marshall, I recognize you from the news,” Mission said.
“Well I do hope I look better in person. I always think ‘who is that old man?’ when I see myself on TV” Marshall replied.
“Trust me you look ten years younger in person,” Mission replied.
“My god you should go into politics. I almost believed that,” he added. Agent Mission smiled but said nothing in reply. So Marshall went on. “I have looked over your proposal. I like it a lot. It should not only help me sell the budget, but should also advance our move to create efficiency in the non metro areas of the state. I hesitate to call them rural, since we want to get involved in the law enforcement in any town with a population under half a million.”
“That I had not heard before,” Mission said.
“Well you knew the plan was to take over all the country law enforcement first, then go to small town police departments?” Marshall asked.
“Yes, but half a million is almost all the police departments in the state,” Mission suggested.
“Well your proposal will get our nose in the tent,” he said.
“That was never the intent,” Mission said.
“And I will never admit that it played any part in my decision to push forward with it. I think I can get committee approval during the meeting next week. Then we will have a definite go, even before the official vote.”
“So should I be looking for resources?” Mission asked.
“Yes, but remember to sell the bigger plan, we want to absorb qualified local law enforcement people into the State Bureau of Investigation as much as possible,” Marshall said.
“There are not a lot of high quality people in small town law enforcement. We aren’t exactly looking for Mayberry here,” Mission said.
“True but we could have used Sheriff Porter, if you people hadn’t fucked it up,” Marshall said.
“Well we did clean it up, so I guess all is forgiven. Besides that was a rogue operation.” Mission said.
“Let’s face it sweetie, she did everything better than the SBI with less than 10% of the resources. So like I said, we could have used her,” Marshall said.
“Sylvia had some very worrisome friends,” Mission replied.
“Well that is true. So do you have anyone in mind?” Marshall asked.
“Several actually, no one really stands out. They are mostly young and aggressive. They are applicants with law enforcement backgrounds in smaller departments across the state,” Mission advised him.
“Well you have the power to recruit if you hear of anyone good. So good luck and even though we can’t advertise it, the program is going to go a long way with the politicians I can tell you that. There is something sexy about spies and double agents,” Marshall replied. “Keep me advised.
“Absolutely,” Mission replied but thought, fat fucking chance. The only reason you know anything about it is I need funding for the new section I am starting.
Ps it would be kind of a bunch of flash fiction staring the same characters each time.
