CHAPTER SIX

“Remington”

?

"So, who are you really?" the man earnestly wondered.

"Sierra Connors. I'm a free lance thief but I usually work solo."

"Okay, Free Lance," the man began, "I'm Thomas Remington and I’ll tell you why everyone wants that document. You see I was once, years ago a struggling young artist. One day I happened to sell some of my paintings to a very rich man by the name of Charles Andrews. Then my life radically changed.

Andrews introduced me to the upper class. I sold more paintings, became rich. Andrews took me to auctions. Taught me how and when to bid. What to bid on. After he died several years ago, I inherited some of collections. I found a strange document in a pouch one day. It was sort of a map. I soon found out it was indeed a map. A map listing the possible locations of some type of strange energies located around the world.

This energy is of much interest to various groups. Some want to study its properties for health potential. Some want to study it for use as a possible weapon. Some just want to re-sell it to anyone for the right price."

"Like you do," Sierra stated.

Thomas Remington turned and walked over to a large picture window and stared out into the darkness.

"Yes," he melancholically replied, "honestly, I just want to get rid of it. It's more trouble than it's worth. I'll tell you what, why don't I...."

Suddenly, Thomas Remington went silent.

"Why don't you what?" Sierra asked, but Remington didn’t reply.

So she cautiously walked over and noticed a small hole through Remington’s forehead, in which a trail of blood began to pour out. Suddenly, he slumped to the floor.

Sierra also noticed a bullet hole in the picture window. She quickly bent down to check on Remington, when another bullet silently penetrated the window and narrowly missed her own head.

She obviously realized it was too late for Thomas Remington and if she didn't get out of there fast, it would be too late for her as well.

Only short, but dam effective! I thought the documents would be some boring spy thing like the names of spy guys, you know, that old chestnut. But "No" the documents contents are truly intriguing! Strange energies! i love it. This story just became an adventure! I have heard of portholes located around the world from which ufos travel inter dimensionally and the healing pits used by Ra's al ghul but this is new and very exciting indeed ") And then i was shocked when Remington coped one in the head. Wow! great chapter and i can't wait for more and to find out how Sierra escapes this one. really loving this Evie ")

Wow! I didn't expect that. Evidently someone wants that map so badly he/she was willing to kill Remington to keep Sierra (or somebody else) from getting ahold of it. I can't wait to read more!
