Start with this scenario:

Quote:
Alec Freeman braced himself as the attendant stepped aside to allow him into the viewing room. Freeman had no idea why his old boss, General Bond with MI-6, had called him that morning and all but ordered him to the medical examiners office to confirm the identity of a body found in a London alley the night before.

Bond had refused to tell him who they thought it was in the alley, only that Freemans assistance was required.

The attendant stayed at a respectful distance as Freeman approached the glass partition that separated the viewers from the deceased. The gowned person on the other side of the glass pulled down the drape to expose the face. A monitor in the wall flickered on to reveal a close up of the face.

Freeman suppressed a gasp. He knew that face, had worked with the man for more than ten years. The pale hair, finely sculpted face

Thats Ed Straker, he managed to choke out.

Have you any idea what he was doing in that alley last night? someone asked. Freeman looked over to see a man standing beside. Freeman hadnt realized that anyone had entered the room. Even in civilian clothes the man had a military bearing military intelligence, possibly. Or a cop who had spent a lot of time in the military.

Ive no idea, Freeman admitted. What was the cause of death?

We have no idea, the man admitted. Hopefully the toxicology results will tell us something.

Youre sure you dont know why he was in London last night?

Freeman shook his head. The last time I spoke with him, he was heading home.

He frowned. Security would have told him if anything untoward had happened with Straker last night even slipping away from the personal protection team would have been brought to his attention. Straker was too valuable to SHADO to be left unprotected.

Did he have anything with him when he was found? Freeman asked.

Funny you should ask that, the man said. There was something a costume a red space suit sort of thing in a suitcase.

Well, I have come up with two plots so far.. one totally ridiculous ( but fun!) and the other.. well, Ed Straker will probably leave the country if I actually decide to write that one!

So you can guess what it involves...

Drat.
 

Oh.. I second the nomination for most evil forum member .
All those in favour?

RE; November Challenge;

Are there any rules?

Dates etc?

When should we start posting....NO! I haven't started writing!! Just need to know for the idea I have!!


And is there a closing date?


Louise creeps away to tell Ed Straker that this time it isn't her fault that he is dead

Hi Deb,

I really second that - with such a mean start you need to do an own one.

I don't think anyone ever set ground rules for one of these around here. How about it needs to be posted by November 15?

At least 500 words (in addition to the prompt.)
