365 Ficlets – Day #320 ~ “The Cut of Memory’s Knife”

“What are you doing here, Vic?”

Her smile sent a shiver through Paul, he remembered the time long ago when he would wake up to that smile. Having been put back out into the field, Paul had been given no information on his handler beyond the protocol and the eight meeting places. When he had picked up the location instruction he had wondered if it would be Harrison again; the last time in London it had been Harrison, but he had never thought it might be Victoria.

“Hello Paul. How’ve you been?”

Paul shrugged, still reeling internally while trying to come across as at least professional.

“You weren’t told it was going to be me, were you?”

“No, but it’s fine. I’m fine. How have you been Vic?”

She smiled again, and then suddenly she was all business;

“Well, we want you to infiltrate a new group working in and around Southwark. Their activities have started to become a little too out in the open, and we need to understand what their wider objectives are, so that we can plan the correct approach to frustrate their plans.”

Backgrounds for your widescreen monitor…

So, while I was away on the Futility Weekender in March I took the first still-life I have ever been pleased with, so I decided to celebrate with some widescreen backgrounds for Mac and Windows users. Please feel free to download and use them, as long as you don’t try and pass them off as your own 😉

If people want them I will do some traditional resolution versions for square displays as well, so let me know…
