Being a 'free-lance' reporter has it advantages and sat here supping a decent cup of Earl Grey is most certainly one of them ... not to mention the slab of
Cherry Genoa that had accompanied it. All that remains of the latter are a few crumbs on a white porcelain plate, whilst the matching cup in your left hand
is in urgent need of a re-fill. Leaning forward you ring the small silver bell and some moments later old Rigby shambles towards you clutching a tray
containing a silver tea-pot and a brown manilla envelope.
"This just arrived for you," he mumbles and you smile at the missing 'Sir' that any of the others here present would have tagged on to the end of the statement.
But old Rigby had never really accepted you as a 'bona-fide' member of this club and often made his feelings known concerning the matter. However he was good at
his job and the simple fact that he produced such an excellent pot of tea more than made up for his 'crustiness'.
Tearing open the envelope, you slide out the small sheet of paper contained within and begin to read its contents as old Rigby turns on his heels and
".... have located the site of the ancient Golden Pyramid... looks to be in excellent condition... natives a shade restless but should not cause you many
problems... the rumours have it that it is untouched... will look forward to your arrival..."
Your eyes scan across the page and come to rest on the signature on the bottom and a smile of recognition flits across your face. You
have seen that scrawl many times before and it has always meant that you were on the verge of yet another great adventure. One day you would have to meet
Wee-Yin personally and express your gratitude for all his stalwart work in the past.
Some hours later, fully equipped and ready for any eventuality, you climb into the 'jump-seat' of a light aircraft and set off for the arid region of Africa
where the Golden Pyramid is to be found.
