He checked the classified ads in the newspaper. It was how his handler communicated with him.
The ad said “Northern end of the pier. 10 pm. Monday. RW”
RW was his handler. He passed the information he stole from his office to RW who passed it to a foreign power in exchange for a wad of money.
He set out for the pier at 9:45. It was only a short walk.
He turned up his collar against the cold. A thin layer of frost covered everything making the road dangerously slippery.
There was hardly anyone on the road. How could there be? It was such a freezing might.
The pier was deserted. All the better, he thought.
But where was RW? He was always there before him.
As he waited he grew more and more suspicious. Suddenly, he heard footsteps behind him.
A pair of strong arms grabbed him from behind. Something with a sickly sweet smell was ptessed against his nose. That smell was the last thing he remembered before he passed out.
What happened next?
How do you think the story ends?
