BIOLOGICAL WARFARE by Granny Annie
Esmeralda peered through her curtains like a madwoman. She viewed the exterior of the property. Gazing beyond her fence-line she saw someone crossing the mountain lake and she twitched with fear. He would arrive at her gate in a short time.
Esmeralda did not seem to have a flicker of hope as she returned to her desk. It was best that she write an account of what was happening. It would be necessary to write down the proper treatment should the bio hazard be released and the long dreaded prediction come true. The vaults had been raided and the harmful bacteria stolen.
The distant figure landed his small boat safely. Esmeralda saw him tie it securely before he began his approach. She barely heard the small plane that soared above her. The sound of machine-gun fire erupted and she saw the intruder fall into the white lilac bush. Her beloved Victor had arrived in the nick of time to rescue her.
Esmeralda rushed to Victor's side as he departed from his small aircraft. Together they examined the body of the intruder. They were able to retrieve the sealed vial of bacteria. Victor would return it to the military bio-hazard laboratory and hopefully it could never be stolen again and never used in biological warfare.
