Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 83
…In the den of the Devil…
“I want you to extricate the human Mary Joseph Franks from her lair. I believe that she is under the protection of the Divine One, which is a formidable obstacle. And as she has already made Canisso’s acquaintance, I need some other human for the intervention.”
Agent Daniels does his best rope-a-dope. “Tell me where she is and I will have her here in two days.”
“No need, get her out of that convent-monastery-whatever and I will do the rest. Canisso will be assisting you.”
“I prefer to work alone.”
“Canisso will take you there.”
He can tell that his loyalty is being tested. ‘This is hardcore stuff,’ he thinks to himself. “I will do so.”
“Yes you will and your ascension inside World Agnostica is on the line.”
As if Daniels doesn’t have enough jobs as it is, now he is being pressured into an unthinkable act against an undeserving victim.
… Meanwhile in the Heavenlies…
The Angel Gabriel is the Divine One’s go-to seraphim in matters of greatest consequence. He hears his Lord’s petition and responds, “I am here Lord.”
“My daughter Mary Joseph is a target of the Evil one. Provide her the protection she needs.”
“It will be done,” Gabriel responds now filled with the earthly details.
… Back in the Chicago-lies…
Twenty miles north of Sister Mary Joseph, Constance and Fanny are helping Martin with getting Willard Libby back into working order. There are more than a few frayed circuit wires and burned out vacuum tubes about his jumbled head. As work can be the best therapy, so does Libby guide Martin through the cherished details of his, still to be revealed to the world, discovery that the actual age of Planet Earth is in the geophysical neighborhood of twenty thousand years, not the 4.5 to 5 billion year range that is broadly accepted.
