ARTHUR CONAN KRANZ
Watson - "Ma'am, with all due respect, I think you mean your little finger."
Adler - "Shut up you coward!" and Irene pulled a Luger pistol from beneath her meri blouse (the exact whereabouts of where it was concealed shall not be revealed) and pointed it straight at Holmes' forehead.
"Now you die, you British dog!"
"As you wish Ms Adler, but there is a fiercesome warrioress from a famed Simbu clan behind you with a stone axe aimed at your skull. I believe her reflexes are quicker than yours."
But a microsecond before she could fire, Inspector Vex leapt from the chair where he had been watching and forced her arm upwards. The shot went harmlessly into the ceiling, where the bullet hole can be seen to this day.
Holmes - “Good Vex, where did that fine Highlands creature appear from, and why?”
“Mr Holmes, I took the precaution of engaging some local security to help protect us as we are in dangerous German territory. They have been tracking us for some time. They are from the infamous Geefouress tribe, trusty but of somewhat dubious reputation. They share one talk of mine.”
Holmes - "Watson, Vex - quickly, come with me. We must save Howard before it is too late. Leave Adler, she's just playing an old tune."
They rushed from the hotel and hailed the nearest horse and cart. "Hurry - to Ulaveo! There are lives at stake!"
The three got to Ulaveo just in time. "Howard! Take cover!" A burst of machine gun fire raked the homestead. "Quick Howard, out the back Where did that fire come from?"
Planter Howard indicated the vicinity of Bita Paka. "The Huns have a secret telegraph base there about two miles hence. We must put it out of action!"
Howard - "You realise the Germans are planning to invade Australia once hostilities commence?"
Holmes - "Yes Howard. That is why we are here."
Evading German patrols, they at last found themselves outside the telegraph base, hidden by dense jungle.
Holmes - "Watson, draw your service revolver. We have need of it! If we don't take this base it will be a downer for all!"
Howard reluctantly nodded agreement as the men prepared for an assault hoping not to be peppered by gunfire.
