‘All this was the easy stuff,’ said the thug who had forced Mac into the portable toilet. ‘The hard stuff is about to start.’
‘The hard stuff?’ repeated Mac, still stunned. ‘What hard stuff?’
‘What hard stuff?’ scoffed the thug. ‘Why Phase Two of Operation TurnBack, of course!’
‘Phase Two?’ echoed Mac again, still unable to follow the thug.
‘FOR ALL YOUR SO-CALLED LEARNING YOU ARE HAVING A HARD TIME UNDERSTANDING ANYTHING I’M SAYING,’ screamed the thug. ‘Phase Two involves the demolition and destruction of every landmark and civic building in existence.’
The thug laughed.
‘You old people were reserved for the easy stuff. It is going to take everyone in the country to make sure that Phase Two is a success.’
