Superspy – Friday Fictioneers

Written for the Friday Fictioneers. A story, about hunting for a superspy, begins after the photo.

Genre: Espionage/Humor

Photo by: Dawn Q. Landau


Khalid and Adeem were on the lookout when Khalid saw the woman walking across the stones. “That’s him,” he pointed.

“Him? That’s a woman!”

“Exactly! Of course the English spy, that Count of Clever, that King of Koncealment, would use clothing to fool us.”

“I think I’ve seen her before,” whined Adeem.

“Exactly. He used her clothing.”


“The Duke of Disguise won’t escape!” Khalid aimed carefully and…

Both men collapsed suddenly, tranquilized from behind by Mitchell Mann, MI-6’s Agent 003.

The old woman gave him a gloved thumbs up. Mann saluted back and looked down.

“You forgot one: Master of Misdirection!”
Each week, the Friday Fictioneers join to share their knack for knowing the nuances of their noggins to write flash fiction from a photo prompt. Look here for more stories based on the photo above:

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Good fun. Snappy dialogue and clever ending. I like Adeem – I think they’d have fared better if he’d been in charge.


  12. Eric, Hilarious! 😀 Agent 003 was way ahead of the bad guys yet again. He’s the greatest! I have a feeling he’ll always come out ahead. Well written yet again. 🙂 —Susan


  13. Cross and doublecross. And some serious code names.

    And now I would like to introduce Monsieur Eric…Master of Mirth, King of Kraziness, Lord of Laughs and occasional Lord High Executioner. Short but oh so sweet to the funny bone 😀
