Harriet’s likeness plasters across multi-media. Dull red surveillance bubbles glow like holiday lights with promises of detection. Capture. Torture. How will we effect an escape for our guiding beacon?
“Mama always says, ‘Hide in plain sight’ “ Harriet leads with old wisdom.
We hatch a plan. Our pigeons spread word. Graffiti will show us where to take her.
Trying to keep it casual, when holiday revelers near a fire barrel hold out whisky, we stop for a few nips. With unbearably bad luck, an errant spark jumps to the too-dry needles and poof!
Agents converge; she will never talk.
