Trail of the Disturber: Part Five

Ms. Madison, dressed in a stylish gown, looked down the somewhat dusty main street of Saint Catherine, the little tom below Mount Sinai, with something bordering on disgust.

'Somehow,' she sighed, 'I thought it 'ld be bigger, with a nice proper hotel, not an assortment of bungalows.'

'You should have come here before the new hotels,' the Green Man shook his head. 'There was only a run-down inn.'

'Then I wouldn't 've come,' the blonde made a face.'You know, Green Man, I can't understand how you can take some of the places you stay in.'

'The need for justice, my dear Madison,' the Green Man replied simply. 'What else?'

'Where to?' Ms. Madison looked around her.

'We climb Mount Sinai at dawn.' The Green Man chuckled. 'I shall do so alone, you will go with a party of tourists. Do not oversleep, remember, Monty Bristow does not sleep...'

'That's a lie,' Ms. Madison protested, 'he doesn't have bags under his eyes - but I shall after tomorrow!'

I hope the Green Man has a light-fabric green trenchcoat so that he can stay cool in the desert heat!

The Green Man has his ways and means.

I want to see a sewer chase involving the Green Man and some fugitive, a la The Third Man.

At the same time, we're all grateful just to have a mysterious and shadowy figure whose blood boils to visit vengeance upon the wicked, who shall present a package of doom to those who have given misery and pain, who shall....well, you get the point.

The adventures of the Green Man continue next week, once I've moved house and set up again.

But those who are wicked will not cease from their labours of evil, even if the Green Man's muse takes a break.

We need the Girl in Grey as a substitute mysterious figure (in grey, not in green) for a few days!

And evil man, if you thought the Green Man was dangerous, just you wait till you meet little me!

A fine substitute you are, mysterious Girl in Grey! Destroy the evildoers and visit vengeance upon the wicked!

Unfortunately, I cannot comment at your radio show...I mean blog.

Sorry. Problem now corrected.

No offense to the Girl in Grey, but whither the Green Man?

There is too much evil in the world for but one color-themed vigilante

Like I said, the Green Man is in deep cover right now. He's due back in October (I hope, since we have a date booked for then).

The Green Man has returned.

Oh, Green Man! Boy, am I glad to see you!
