Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 47
…You seem to have trouble finding reliable human souls to aid our cause…
Pentateuch, a dark figure with a frothing glow, listens intently to an underling in the form of a mere human being, “You did not take his life did you? We do not want the Divine One to react with wrath,” he speaks from a building in somewhere in the ancient city of Rome.
There is more than a modicum of deference in the deep reverberating voice from up high on his golden throne. He fiddles with miniature gold figurines on the shiny surface of a silvery chess board. The one in his grip is taken away from the three tall stacks, while the others are shifted to new positions. There is one figure to the side of the board, lying on its side with a gold thread tied around the neck.
“The man known as Willard Libby, enemy of the darkness, has had his memories taken from him. He lives, but will not be damaging the ‘Great Deception’.”
“The Great Deception was going so well until he had discovered the lie behind the secret.” Pentateuch speaks with vigilance about his proud pet project. For as long as mankind has looked up at the stars in wonder, did he plot and scheme to keep them in the dark about its true age and his relationship to its creator.
“You best be correct about this, Canisso. You seem to have trouble finding reliable human souls to aid our cause, like those two fools who could not handle one flawed female threat.”
“Fanny Renwick was a mistake. They were told to grab Constance Caraway,” Canisso, an agent of darkness in human form, recounts the recent undesired turn in events. “We must neutralize that female Constance; she is a rose, armed with a poison thorn.”
