Response 1: Mission

Vladimir and Boris were jubilant as they joked about their promotion to double agents, and no mean feat too as the KGB doesn’t just pass anyone. Yes, these boys were special.  Suddenly amid the screeching noise of the tube, Vladimir fell into Boris, awkward with nerves; their first mission as agents was no easy one.

Walking out onto the bright light of day made the mission seem that more real. It was a crisp cold Moscow day, the street virtually empty as the rain poured. Vlad held the umbrella tight while Boris kept watch for the target. The tall blond woman breezed past the men unaware of her impending fate. She had been marked for months. Boris gave the nod, this was it, everything they had been working on, could this be it? Vlad ejected the umbrella; the woman fell down like a domino in the snow, they did it!

  1. I imagine Vlad and Boris as bumbling agents, although they got their target this time. Good one
