The Infiltrator

“What a pretty little building in today’s prompt picture. Those antennae look awfully suspicious though!”

I wrote this story in answer to the following prompt:

The Infiltrator

I grimaced as my back grazed upon the drystone wall. The array of antennae indicated this was the listening post.

Crouched I reached the rusted garage door and listened.


Beyond, was a high window. I cursed the boxes blocking my view inside.

Crunching over snow, I crept around the corner.


One guard. AK47 aimed at my head.

“Yup, my arse is frozen, thanks.”

The guard chuckled.

I drew my stun gun, dropped, gagged, and zip-tied his limbs.

Ducking inside, I decked the radio operator and claimed his transcripts.

Mission complete, I extracted and headed for the pub.  

The End

      1. Sure is for me, as you know I love to use thousands of words when writing. I think I answer prompts with more words than most any else as I love telling stories. Something I apologise for

  1. Great action again a usual, Mason!
    Looking at the roofline in the picture though I think those are signing rods with the little glass balls. I see them allover here in New England on older barns and houses. they were supposed to direct lightening strikes into the ground. I don’t see them on newer structures around here though. But I like your thought of using them as antennas – who’s suspect?

    1. Thank you, Lou.

      That’s what those rods are. I knew they didn’t look like regular antennae. Makes sense to have a bit of protection in an open area that has lots of storms I reckon. With the newer wooden construction I guess the need is no longer there.
