Tale Weaver 9th March – Making Sense of Nonsense – The Secret Code

Intrigue, mystery, curiosity. I’m on the case!

What could it mean?
Why was it here?
Who was it from?
Who was it intended for?
So many questions this TOP SECRET file generated in his mind.

He’d seen it poking out of the desk drawer, and couldn’t resist opening the folder.
The handwriting was exquisite, small, neat and precise, on a single page.
No other notes, graphics, or clues.
He absentmindedly picked up a pencil and started trying to decypher the text.
Lost in concentration, he didn’t hear the door open or his supervisor enter.
Suddenly sensing he was not alone, he looked up.
Completely flustered at being caught red handed, he just stood there waiting for the reprimand, or worse, he knew he deserved.

‘Any luck?’ she asked.
‘Er, no. Nothing. Couldn’t even get started actually.’
‘That’s OK then, I won’t have to shoot you.’
She laughed and added , ‘You should see your face!’
‘Sorry. I’ll put it back shall I?’
‘Nah, don’t bother. It’s only an old family recipe for Gherkin Pie handed down from my great great great grandmother who coded everything as she was a firm believer in culinary secrets.’



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
