ECLIPSE MI6 FILES BOOK ONE

Chapter 1: Procured Assets

MI6 OPERATIONS

LONDON, ENGLAND

"..... The Caspian Sea.....

The ruins of the S.P.E.C.T.R.E underwater citadel have turned up an alarming stash of gold bullion..... AM?

"Yes, Minister.....

The vault housing the citadel's assets, has been recovered by a claim by the Iranian government.....

By laws of sea salvage, the right to ownership of this treasure is theirs, with the exception of one miraculous find....."

AM, clicked a button on his slide projector remote to move to the first slide. The MI6 logo is quickly replaced by a visual of a rare artifact of instant recognition by all gathered.

low gasps and raised murmurs now arose from the gathered on their disbelief of the artifact that has now been revealed.

"..... From what we can tell, of the few pictures shared, this is- one of those rarest of religious artifacts, that upholds a title of being an Ark..... The Ark of the Covenant to be exact..... M?"

"..... Yes..... Thank you, AM.....

As you all may very well assume, in challenge of the artifact's rightful ownership; peoples from around the world, are now- calling on the Iranian government to claim possession..... This does not set all that well with the people of Iran.....

The Ark, it was found in their waters, and is claimed to have- been stolen from them.....

The nations united, they all have agreed, to an improvisation- of sorts; to peacefully settle their single claim needs to rightful ownership of the artifact.....

One nation per year, by a process- of fair selection; to gain in temporary rights of securing and of safeguarding the Ark.....

The rights, of the first nation to claim ownership, to fall on the highest bidder in a secret auction purchasing, of a joined writ- in temporary artifact possession.....

Our own secret service of British MI6 Operations, The Central Intelligence Agency, and even The new Russian- FSB (Federal security Service) have all expressed their raised concerns over the protection of the artifact, and of the auction, that will soon take place.....

S.P.E.C.T.R.E will try to recover all of their lost assets, and the artifact by any means available to their organization..... Q?"

"Thank you Minister.....

C.P.A.S, the latest in personal microchip technologies..... This- system will enhance security, of the pending auction...... Each microchip will be fast identified by the security measures that will be installed at the auction house's entry.....

These people alone will be guided to the location of the actual auction that will take place in an undisclosed location..... M?"

"..... The dummy auction is a ploy, to lure out any unwelcome guests that seek to infiltrate the auction.....

The dummy auction, will be covered by a gathering of special- civil authority- agencies from around the world, and from the many branches of service.....

The location of the real auction house, is now being in code to your security registered phones.....

Multiple security precautions, have been used, to protect this- information.....

S.P.E.C.T.R.E must not be allowed to recover The Ark.....

The one nation, government, or radicalized organization that- gains possession of the religious artifact, it will have people of gathering their way, numbering in millions; faithful wishing- to be their to see, and share in the religious enlightenment the artifact may represent, of their faith tested beliefs, and even of extremists, that will seek to serve the one owner of The Ark for thought of the supernatural power it reaps....."

M, now covered the microphone, set atop the speaker podium; within the briefing, room with his right hand, and turned from the audience to send the assistant minister on his way.

"Have double o' six and eight on standby, and call in double o' nine..... it is high time, all the double o's made their keep."

"Yes Minister."

M, returned his attention to the delegates gathered as Q, took- fast leave of the World Nation's Briefing.
