Episode 1 – The Wrong Place, the Wrong Time

Prologue

 

When Harry took the time to consider his position, a rather uncomfortable position at that, he came to the conclusion that he was somehow involved in another case that meant very little to him.

Not that it wasn’t important in some way he was yet to determine, it was just that his curiosity had got the better of him, and it had led to this: sitting in a chair, securely bound, waiting for someone one of his captors had called Doug.

It was not the name that worried him so much, it was the evil laugh that had accompanied after the name was spoken.

Doug what?  Doug the ‘destroyer’, Doug the ‘dangerous’, there was any number of sinister connotations, and perhaps that was the point of the laugh, to make it more frightening than it was.

But there was no doubt about one thing in his mind right then, he had made a mistake.  A big mistake.

His mother, and his grandmother, the wisest person he had ever known, had once told him never to eavesdrop.

At the time he couldn’t help himself and instead of minding his own business, instead listened to a one-sided conversation which ended with a time and a place.

For several days he had wrestled with the thought of whether or not he should go.  Stay on the fringe, keep out of sight.  Instead, he had willing gone down the rabbit hole.

Now, sitting in an uncomfortable chair, several heat lamps hanging over his head, he was perspiring, and if perspiration could be used as a measure of fear, then Harry’s fear was at the highest level.

Another runnel of sweat rolled into his left eye, and, having his hands tied, literally, it made it impossible to clear it.  The burning sensation momentarily took his mind off his predicament.  He cursed and then shook his head trying to prevent a re-occurrence.  It was to no avail.

Let the stinging sensation be a reminder of what was right and what was wrong.

It was the right place and the right time.

But he was definitely in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

  6. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to keep a
    reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    What i don’t understood is in fact how you are not really much more smartly-preferred than you might be right now.
    You are so intelligent. You already know thus considerably in the case of this matter,
    made me in my view imagine it from a lot of numerous angles.
    Its like women and men don’t seem to be fascinated unless
    it is one thing to do with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding.
    Always handle it up!
