BIG, THICK LENSES (HCC 43)

The Hannah Carmichael Chronicles

 

Your Briefing:

Hannah Carmichael: Superspy, undercover to take down CGT spy agency, chasing Evelyn Carmichael (Mother and known criminal). Status: Currently in JAIL for her mother’s crimes.
Zeke Anderson: Husband, working with the government to take down CGT. Status: Believed to be dead by CGT and worldwide.
Stephanie Winchester: Best friend and fellow spy – also undercover. Currently in JAIL for Evelyn Carmichael’s crimes.
Baxter: Zeke’s partner, working to take down CGT.
How can Baxter get Hannah and Stephanie out of JAIL? CGT still thinks Zeke is dead, but what will he do now?

 

FORTY-THREE

Zeke Anderson’s jaw dropped as he read the headline again.

Terrorists Hannah Carmichael and Stephanie Winchester arrested in plot scandal.

He shook his head and swallowed hard. They were being framed. He read the full article and sighed, dropping the newspaper and rubbing his forehead. Evelyn was near death, all followers were dead, and Hannah was being used as the fall guy, or girl.
The doorknob of the small cabin jiggled and Zeke grabbed for his gun, jumping up from the couch and aiming his weapon at the door.
“Whoa man! Take it easy,” Baxter said as he came through the door, holding his left hand out to guard his face.
Zeke sighed, “Dude, I could have killed you.” He said, putting his gun back into its holster.
Baxter gave a sly smile, “maybe then you and Hannah could be in the same jail cell.”
Zeke frowned and shook his head, “not funny Bax.” He flopped back onto the couch and sighed. Baxter shrugged and closed the door. “Sorry. I got a phone call from Hannah.”
Zeke sat straighter and leaned in, “and?”
“She’s innocent, Zeke. You knew that already,” Baxter smiled and shook his head. “She just wanted to see if we can put things in motion to get them out before CGT kills them.”
Zeke nodded, “I did know that. I was more worried about the latter anyway.” He stood and started pacing, “So what should our next steps be?” He asked aloud.
Baxter sighed, “Well, the good news is CGT still thinks your death was legit,” he said.
Zeke raised his eyebrows then smiled, “That’s fantastic.” Moving over to a small mirror, Zeke looked at himself. “I can change my hair, eyes, maybe even glasses,” he spun and smiled. “Then it will be my turn to go undercover.”
Baxter frowned, “What about your real job? Oliver isn’t just going to give you months of time off you know.”
Zeke chuckled, “maybe not. But he might give me orders to go undercover. What with my new status of being dead and all.” He grinned and turned back to the mirror, pulling his hair out of his eyes and moving it into new styles.
“Okay, I’ll call him and see what I can do,” Baxter said, pulling out his phone.
Zeke pulled out a notepad and started writing his list, “Great. This is my shopping list. I’ll need hair dye, a razor and scissors, colour contacts and a pair of big, thick lenses.” He ripped off the paper and handed it to Baxter. “Plus a few extras thrown in there too.”
