Whilst I’ve been contacted by the Agency through many abnormal ways before , this… this was new.
It has been a few months since my last contract.
The recipe indicated it was writing by a ‘Miss A Lodger.’ To the common eye this would just be a name , but this actually meant ‘ Mississippi Agency Unit L’ which is where I trained in my younger years. I was told by another agent this Unit was decommiss...

Eight handfuls of “e_”’

I’m going to have to let you go.” That is what her boss said to her today. “Awesome,” Carla had said back sarcastically. Even now she thinks about wanting to...
