The next day the Agents met back at the hideout.
â€œIâ€™ve been thinking about what the men were saying,â€ announced Agent Q, â€œand Iâ€™m wondering when and where they will carry out their plan. We know they plan to sneak into some sort of event which requires tickets, and avenge someone by committing a horrible crime with guns, presumably murder. But we donâ€™t know who they will murder, or when, or where they will do it.â€
â€œWe need to record their conversations,â€ determined Agent T. â€œThen we can figured out who their target is and when and where they will carry out the crime.â€
â€œI just got a great idea!â€ exclaimed Agent P. â€œWhat if we could hide a bug inside their base?â€
â€œThatâ€™s a great idea!â€ agreed Agent H. â€œBut I donâ€™t think we have any bugs, or money to buy them.â€
â€œThen how will we record their conversations?â€ asked Agent N. â€œI donâ€™t think we have a voice recorder at all.â€
â€œDoes anyone have a voice recorder they could bring in?â€ inquired Agent M.
â€œI do!â€ exclaimed Agent T.
â€œI think I do,â€ contributed Agent Q.
â€œBring those to our next meeting,â€ Agent M told them, â€œbut for now I think weâ€™ll have to do without them.â€
â€œPlus, everything that the robot has overheard has been recorded,â€ added Agent A.
Just then, Agent S leaped to his/her feet. â€œLook! There they are.â€ He/she pointed to the screen which was showing the feed from Agent Râ€™s camera.
Sure enough, the Man and his comrade were walking down the trail, and the Agents could hear them through the microphone.
â€œAre you kidding? He probably had some secret tracking device or something that led the FBI right to usâ€”unless you think they were tracking the XXXXXX,â€ the Man was saying.
â€œBut wouldnâ€™t it be easier to kill an FBI Agent or something?â€ his comrade asked. â€œI mean really, killing the President? They hung people after Abe Lincolnâ€™s assassination, you know.â€
â€œShhh! You canâ€™t go around saying that!â€ the Man told him.
After that, they were too far away to be picked up by Agent Râ€™s voice recorder.
Back at the hideout, the Agents were very excited.
â€œOh my gosh! Theyâ€™re planning to kill the President!â€ exclaimed Agent T. â€œThis is terrible! What are we going to do?â€
â€œWe need to go to the police,â€ declared Agent J. â€œThis is way too serious. We canâ€™t just stand there and watch them plan crime of the century and not tell anyone.â€
â€œWe shouldnâ€™t go to the police,â€ countered Agent P. â€œWe need to go to the FBI, or even the President himself. But who will believe us?â€
â€œWe do have the video recordings,â€ Agent A reminded everyone.
â€œStill, they might think that the video recordings are a hoax, and how will we explain how we recorded them in the first place? Theyâ€™d never believe anything about the FBI, and the FBI would deny it to keep us a secret. They canâ€™t let word get out that a bunch of XXXXXX prevented the President from being kidnapped.â€
â€œThe FBI might believe us,â€ suggested Agent N.
â€œBut how will we inform them?â€ asked Agent H, â€œI donâ€™t think theyâ€™re getting XXXXXXXXXâ€™s emails. Otherwise they would have sent a reply by now.â€
â€œI think we need to have a back up plan in case no one believes us, and the FBI doesnâ€™t respond. I agree with XXXXXXXXX, we canâ€™t just watch the crime of the century unfold. We need to do something about it, even if no one else does,â€ declared Agent Q.
â€œAre you kidding?â€ asked Agent M. â€œYou plan to have us stop some men from killing the President? Have you considered the possibility that theyâ€™ll kill us if they find out?â€
â€œBut I think XXXXXXXXX is right. We canâ€™t just watch it happen. And weâ€™d be careful, and not try anything too dangerous,â€ argued Agent S.
â€œArenâ€™t you guys forgetting something?â€ asked Agent H. â€œWe donâ€™t even know when and where this is going to happen. If the President is in Washington D.C., we canâ€™t easily go there to try to help him.â€
â€œI think it will probably be nearby,â€ suggested Agent Q. â€œOtherwise, why would the men have a hideout here? Their hideout would be closer to Washington D.C. Though I suppose they might have plans to travel there that we just havenâ€™t —–â€
â€œOh my gosh! I just remembered!â€ Agent S interrupted. â€œThe President is coming to give a speech this weekend in XXXXXXXX at the XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX!â€
â€œReally? Then maybe thatâ€™s where the Man is going to kill the President!â€ exclaimed Agent A.
â€œActually, Iâ€™m hoping that we can prevent the Man from killing the President,â€ corrected Agent Q. â€œBut I think that it just might be the place where heâ€™s going to try to kill him.â€
â€œBut what can we do about it?â€ sighed Agent J. â€œI donâ€™t want us to be in danger like we were before. The men will kill us if we try to stop them.â€
â€œCanâ€™t we just tell the FBI?â€ asked Agent P. â€œThen they could stop the men and we wouldnâ€™t have to.â€
â€œThat would be great, but Iâ€™m not sure if weâ€™ll be able to contact them. The FBI havenâ€™t been responding to XXXXXXXXXâ€™s emails and how else can we get word to them?â€ Agent T pointed out.
â€œWe could send an anonymous note to the police. Then they would inform the FBI,â€ suggested Agent N.
â€œBut would they believe us? Weâ€™d have to send some sort of proof. Even then, they might think itâ€™s a hoax,â€ determined Agent H.
â€œWhat we need to do is get word to Agent X or Agent L. They would believe us. But if they wonâ€™t respond to email, how can we contact them?â€ wondered Agent M.
â€œWe could call them,â€ proposed Agent P, â€œbut we donâ€™t have their phone number.â€
â€œWe could call the President and ask him to tell them,â€ suggested Agent A.
â€œBut you canâ€™t just call and talk to the President. I donâ€™t know if the President answers phone calls at all,â€ Agent J pointed out.
â€œMaybe we could send a letter!â€ exclaimed Agent P. â€œDoesnâ€™t the President get a lot of letters?â€
â€œWeâ€™d have to hurry,â€ advised Agent H. â€œEven if we send the letter now, Iâ€™m not sure if the President will get it in time. Besides, he might think itâ€™s a hoax anyway.â€
â€œWell, I think itâ€™s worth a try,â€ declared Agent T. â€œLetâ€™s get started right now.â€
