Note to those who have never heard of the Agent team: This is a sequel to Agent team: The Man in Black. If you ever have any interest in reading the first book, this will completely spoil it. Both were written by me, mainly for the fun of it.
Chapter 1 drill
The Agents were gathered in the hideout.
“All right team, let’s move!” declared Agent M.
The Agents moved. They knew what to do. It was the same drill every time they met together. Sure, they switched roles, but there were only so many Agents, so sooner or later you were back where you started.
Anyhow, the Agents moved. Agent T took off through the woods. Agents Q and P headed down the trail in opposite directions. Agents N and J headed through the woods in yet another direction. The rest of the Agents filed into the woods walking to their various posts along the trail, except Agent M, who stayed in the hideout. Thus began the drill.
Soon Agents N and P arrived at a road near the entrance to the woods. They sat down in the trees next to it so they were hidden, but could see the road.
“This is boring.” sighed Agent S. ” Why do we have to do this every time?”
“Oh, I know what you mean.” declared Agent J. “It makes me want to quit the Agent team sometimes. All we do is investigate silly things like gloves and buttons and have boring drills like this one.”
“I know.” replied Agent S “It’s so boring sitting here and watching nothing.
“The only reason why I don’t quit the Agent team is because of the President.” sighed Agent J.
“I wish he’d come back.” Agent S said wistfully.
“Me too.” said Agent J. “Then things would get interesting. I almost wish we hadn’t caught the Man.”
“Yeah” exclaimed Agent S. “We could get guns and shoot him!”
“Like deer!” exclaimed Agent J. “We should go deer hunting. I need to suggest that to Agent M. Bam! Bam! Bam!” He/she mimed shooting a gun.
Agent S and J began to pretend they were shooting rabbits squirrels and deer, hunting in the woods.
Meanwhile, Agent P had made his/her way toward the clearing in the woods. But to his/her surprise, the clearing was filled with tents. He/she gasped, then grinned. The President was back! A man stopped him/her at the entrance to the clearing.
“The lilies are beautiful, but there are to many dandelions.” Agent P said thoughtfully.
“However,” replied the man, “they add color to a field.”
Agent P entered the clearing. Inside one of the tents he/she met Agent L.
“Hey! How’ve you been? asked Agent L.
“Fine.” replied Agent P “But it’s been boring here without you guys. I almost wish we’d never found the trap and seen Agent X.
Agent L frowned. “What trap?”
Agent P told her about the trap they’d found. “It has Agent X’s fingerprints on it.” he/she explained. “We got them when we met him on the trail.”
“Agent X never met you on the trail. And we never set any traps, I’m sure. Are you sure it was Agent X?”
Agent P shrugged. “Who else dresses completely in black and walks down the trail? He must have been one of you guys. Agent M said he looked like one of us on a drill.”
“I’m 99 percent sure that was not one of our agents.” Agent L replied. “And I’m 150 percent sure something is very wrong.”
