Recall a time when you were able to hear and see what was happening from a position of advantage. No one could see you and so no one knew you were watching. What did you discover? Was the husband cheating on the wife? Attempting to bribe a school administrator? Offering for sale valuable piece of jewelry?
What did you do? Keep it a secret, thinking it was none of your business? Or did you report what you’d witnessed to an authority?
This is the story that needs to be told.
Your task is to write a story from the point of view of the spy, the character that no one knew was watching.
This person could be real, or imaginary, or even an animal, such as the pet cat.
Intrigue is a must. Make the event something important, something that changes relationships, the economy or even the power of government.
Have fun with this one.
