To a human eye, it might have seemed as if the two bald eagles were comparing notes on how to catch elusive fat rats. Perched on the highest tree that they could find, they surveyed the humans as keenly as they could.
When the dogs and cats had refused to spy on the humans, Agents E and C had recruited the eagles for their surveillance wing. Both the agents were in for a disappointment. Despite the global attack that had been unleashed by Agent C, the humans seemed unfazed. After a month of inactivity, the humans had gone back to their lives as usual. Agent C’s attack had brought Agent E some time to recover and recoup from her injuries. But the way things were going, they were going to have to come up with a better plan.
Any guesses as to the identities of Agents E and C???
P.S: This story may seem like a half-baked one since I made the decision to publish my first draft without major editing. The migraine still hasn’t released its clutches. 😪 Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day. I’m calling it a day and hitting the bed early today.
