Trail of the Disturber: Part Six

The Green Man looked out of the hotel window, as Ms. Madison, dressed in black lacy undies, packed her trunks.

'Why you had to undress,' he observed, 'escapes me.'

'It's hot!' the blonde exclaimed. 'And a girl has to look her best, you know. What is it with the Disturber going to Mount Sinai?'

'I don't know,' the Green Man sighed. 'And that's what worries me. Monty Bristow specialises in tricks designed to destroy consensuses in society. The Sinai desert is on the Egyptian-Israeli border. If the Disturber's there, he could be planning to create tension on the border. But there's another possiblity...'

'What?' Ms. Madison looked up, eyes big with fascination.

'Mount Sinai is where Moses received the Ten Commandments, and Elijah met God,' the Green Man explained. 'What if Bristow's planning to create a 'manifestation' of some sort that will split the religious truce between most Muslims, Christians and Jews wide open.'

'What...?' Ms. Madsion rose to her feet.

'Religion is the most powerful force in the world, even today,' the Green Man explained. It remains one of the few things that large numbers of people will die for. If Bristow could spark off a religious war between Christians, Muslims and Jews, he could have the world-wide disorder he's always warning people of.'

The lovely Ms. Madison was speechless with shock at such a thought.

If the Green Man has the decency to look the other way, how come we have to get a direct view?

Ms. Madison insisted - the hussy!

The Girl in Grey said...

Why, Ms Madison! I'm surprised at you!

Ms. Madison said...

Well, a girl's got to live, and I don't plan on working for the Green Man for ever.

The Girl in Grey said...

I'd love to work for him for ever...

L. Madison said...

They all say that at first. I started as part of a gap year.

The Girl in Grey said...

But YOU don't want to marry him, do you?

Ms Madison said...

Been there, came out the other side.

The Girl in Grey said...

Ms Madison, I'm serious. And I KNOW you think I'm silly. I'm not.

That doesn't sound very serious, does it?

L. Madison said...

No, but I'm not serious. Just for laughs, me...
