The End? Or a new beginning? (Part 1)

By MissEclipse

Adventure / Action

Prologue

Hannibal Smith stood outside the Silver Creek Retirement Community Home and smiled satisfactorily at his team. They had successfully completed another mission for General Stockwell Hunt and their full presidential pardon was now, surely, within their reach.

Of course they couldn't have accomplished this mission without the help of two feisty pensioners called Bernie and George, who were at this very minute, whisking Frankie off and telling him exactly how they would cope with chasing "thugs through the park".

"Chasing thugs through the park," repeated Hannibal with some amusement. "It's got a nice ring to it doesn't it?"

"It has a terrible ring to it," replied Face, rather apprehensively.

"Just think, if we get a pardon we may never have to eat a knuckle sandwich again," said Murdock.

"Wouldn't bet on it crazy man," said BA. "Looks like Hannibal is on the jazz again."

Murdock looked questionably at Hannibal. 

"You tell me right now," he said. "You tell me right to my face that you don't have a plan?"

"Well," said Hannibal, "I was thinking, like Bernie and George – what are we going to do when this thing is over? I mean, what are we really qualified to do?"

"Go after thugs in the park?" answered Face, somewhat resignedly.

Hannibal continued with a gleam of mischief in his eye.

"And outlaw motor cycle gangs and organised crime figures. Why, there's a world of slimeballs out there!"

"I knew it!" exclaimed Murdock. "I just knew you had a plan."

"Comforting, isn't it?" replied Hannibal, with a big smile on his face.

"I'll get the van," said BA.

"OK," said Hannibal. "We'll rescue Frankie and then we'll head back to the hotel for our de-brief with Stockwell."

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

mitchreed519: Truly fantastic, I would buy this book and any other prequels or sequels there after. An empowering and intriguing novel, and well written. Best literature I've read in a while, beats out published books as well.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

rudyoxborough46: An action-packed, mystical adventure awaits anyone wishing to read this novel. I’m amazed at how well you’ve managed to flesh out the characters in this book, and I hope to read more of your work.I’ve read books about goblins and elves and all that mumbo-jumbo before, and most accounts of these c...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

usubitha1: There are many things in this book that I liked but most of all the way the author wrote this story. This is a clear inspiration for humans and inspired me much. I liked the author way of presenting the characters of the story, the plot of the story and most of all the inspiration. There are som...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...
