2016 Mission 6, 443, 273

By Edele Winnie

There were always four. That’s why this didn’t make sense. Wherever you went- corporation, village, unit, class, whatever- there were always four. But this time Melanie found five.

Melanie was a pro- not only highly trained and a weapons expert but she also had 12 years hard experience to back it up. She knew the ins, the ups and was careful enough to never even have been wounded. She was fast, thorough and deadly.

She had discovered them on her first day. It was at the Belcon Corporation head office, employing 350 with a fine dining cafeteria and company swimming pool. She’d had new employee orientation in the morning and then gone to the cafeteria for lunch. She was the new girl- short bobbed blonde, natural makeup, blue skirt and jacket- and all the company wolves took note. Clothes can’t hide real power- and Melanie was extremely fit and capable. Every wandering male eye was drawn as if by a magnet. But she ignored it. She had to. Not only was it an inconvenience, but the four would be unaffected. It might even make her stand out too much, and her cover would be blown.

Tray in hand, plate heaped with the salad of the day, Melanie strode into the cafeteria seating area prepared for the stares. She swayed her hips just a little bit more for those hungry eyes. She had to play the part if she was going to survive. She’d done it too many time before for it not to work. The men in suites looked up, the females scowled, and she was invited to sit beside a corporate vice president alpha wolf who was practically drooling. She flirted as she picked at her salad but her eyes were scanning for the four. They might be in hiding or they might be elsewhere- usually they were so used to being ignored that they were easy to spot. And there they were. (more…)

News!

Sorry Adventure Worlds readers, we don’t have a story for you this week. Christian and I have decided that due to the drop in submissions, we will move to posting every other Monday. With the lion’s share of posts falling to the two of us, if we were to keep the weekly schedule, we wouldn’t have any time to finish the collection (yes, we are still working on it) or our novels (planned to be released in the last quarter of 2015).

Next Monday, we have another exciting story from our long time contributor, Edele Winnie titled Duck, Duck, Goose. Thankfully, she continues to be a steadfast part of Adventure Worlds, sending stories from the beginning.

The next post will be on July 27th and it’s part 6 of the continuing Dime Store Detective story.

Speaking of our collection. If you haven’t heard (or if you have and forgot) we have a cover contest happening now. There is a whole page of information here: http://adventureworldsblog.com/2015/06/16/cover-contest/

Please give it a look and see if you can come up with the perfect cover for our forthcoming collection. You could win $50, copies of the book, and our eternal thanks.

Submissions are always welcome.

Thanks, we’ll see you next week!
