It was just another late shift for PC Andy Smith. He responded to a weird call from a truck driver on the AI not far from Morpeth. Apparently, a naked young woman stood in the centre of the carriageway and successfully blocked the road for several moments.Naked and shoeless she was – hairless and spattered with mud up her bare legs – according to the witness. She stood in the glare of his headlights and seemed transfixed for several moments. The next moment, she was gone – so fast that he didn’t even see which way she went.Believing her possibly to be a psychiatric patient from a local hospital, Andy initiated a local area search.Several miles to the south, some very worried people were panicking. They had to call a number in Surrey… “What is it, dear?” his wife asked, having now woken up as well.“Problem at work. I have to make a call from the study,” he said, slipping his dressing gown and slippers on and heading downstairs to his opulent study.Moments later, he dialled a number on an unregistered cell phone.“It’s me. The unspeakable has happened,” he said.He listened for a moment and then grunted.“I have a good man on it. His team will ensure a tidy completion, but this sets us back a bit.”He then listened some more.“The other asset is not yet ready. We will accelerate the programme and I’ll let you know. Just get the police off our backs.”The person on the other end said something and then terminated the call. “Bugger it!” Robert said and banged the desk with his fist. He then punched in another number on his phone.“Maurice, it’s me,” he said, “if you can’t recover, then terminate expeditiously. Don’t leave a trace for anyone to find!”Then he switched off the phone and went back up to bed.They gave her a number instead of a name.They kept her naked and in the dark.They never taught her to speak.They trained her far better than even they anticipated.….and now she was free and wanted pay-back!
