Falcon Boy: Vol. 1: 70 ‘The Needs of the Many’ Part II

output_I61G4SFalcon Boy had been standing silently while Ellis was talking to Captain Lorimer. Now he spoke.

‘The Troublebots are disguised as backing dancers,’ he told the Captain, as if Ellis wasn’t there and the Captain hadn’t just been briefed, ‘but they cannot dance and so should be very easy for us to spot.’

Ellis sighed. Captain Lorimer wasn’t sure what to make of the whole thing. She looked slightly embarrassed. Falcon Boy was unabashed.

‘I suggest you instruct your men to apprehend them,’ he continued.

‘But how?’ asked Captain Lorimer. ‘I cannot just disrupt the show. There are a hundred thousand people in the crowd and several hundred million more watching on screens all around the world.’ Captain Lorimer pushed her hat back slightly and scratched her forehead.

Captain Lorimer felt conflicted here. She was delighted that Dr Don’t Know’s plot had begun to be discovered and was potentially only several pages away from being foiled. She was also relieved to hear that there was no further mention of the Moon Rope. ‘Perhaps I might get to keep my job after all,’ she thought.

However, she took her responsibilities very seriously. She couldn’t simply act on the advice of a useless-looking costumed crime-fighter and a young child without thinking things through. After all, this was the same costumed crime-fighter she had recently had to tell to stop directing bank holiday traffic.

‘We need to act very carefully here,’ she told Falcon Boy. ‘We all need to take our time and act thoughtfully.’

Falcon Boy snorted.

‘We need to act immediately,’ he declared. ‘This is not the time for taking our time.’

Author: Barnaby Taylor

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.
