Our Fifth Mission!! Written byMlle. Isabella de Roche
Nervously you fidget in your seat, trying to appear focused on the
opera presented on stage, but with all your attentions focused on the
orchestra box where Lady Hastings sits with her husband. Fingering the
customary sealed note in your hand, you wonder why Lady Hastings foundit
necessary to meet with you here, privately, instead of holding ameeting
at her home as usual. But you have no time to ponder these
conflicting thoughts, for Lord Hastings has left the box. You take
yourcue and move swiftly to the door of the Hastings box. Your knock is
Your voice must betray your doubts, for she
replies in a tone meant to reassure.
"Yes, my friend, come in and have a seat."
You see at once that you have been expected, for she has drawn two
chairs into the dark recesses of the box, where your conversation will
not be detected.
"You no doubt wonder why you and you alone have been asked to meet
with me at such an unusual time and place," she comments softly, and you
smile at her accuracy in gauging your thoughts. "My friend, we have
precious little time in which to work. I have asked only you to help me
because there was no time for contacting the full Guild, and you have
proven yourself faithful in these things in the past. The specifics of
our task I will explain shortly. For now, you only must know that the
success of the League's next mission is in peril, and consequently, so
is the Scarlet Pimpernel himself."
