#A2Z Challenge: F for Foxtrot

During 2018’s A-Z Challenge, we wrote the first draft of “The November Deadline” and to celebrate that this is now (finally) out with beta readers, we’ll be producing a daily piece of micro-fiction linked to it – some prequel, some containing a detail not included in the story, some snippets from sequels currently being written.


“Ere Jack, as I’m doin’ undercover spy stuff, does I get one of them you know whats?”
“Sorry Frank, you’ve lost me old chap.”
“A moniker – y’know, some sort of secret codename.”
“It wasn’t something I’d given any thought to. Why, did you have something in mind?”
“Yeah, I were thinking Foxtrot.”
“You mean like the dance? I’d no idea you had an interest…”
“Nah, nuffin’ like that. It were my Ma! ‘er idea of ‘eaven were a night down the Palais. She used ta call me Foxtrot Frank and whirl me round the parlour.”
“Foxtrot Frank it is then!”
