Turned?

‘It’s the same fist, but …’

‘He’s not turned,’ Finch snapped.  ‘Hanney wouldn’t collaborate.’

‘He might under duress,’ March reasoned.  ‘Trying to save the lives of others.’

‘By entrapping other agents?  No, Hanney has a rock solid sense of duty.  I was involved in his training.’

‘And that sense of duty might play in different ways.  If he’s turned then the entire network is compromised.  And we’re parachuting others into a certain trap.’  

‘It’s not a certain trap!’

‘But it might be?’

‘No.’

‘We’re playing Russian roulette with people’s lives.’

‘Which is the case whether he’s turned or not.’


A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

Oh, now I want to know about Hamney, Rob! This is a really intriguing bit of story!
