Rainbow snippet – Spies, Planes and Automobiles

Here’s a smidge from the mad crossover I did with Elin Gregory  (my Cambridge Fellows, her Eleventh Hour spies). You can download the whole story here.

Miles had managed to force his eyes open; there were worse sights to greet a man than Jonty Stewart, even though he must be into his fifties by now. Classically handsome face, high cheekbones, a scar that added rather than detracted from the whole effect. Miles couldn’t deny that he’d fancied his tutor during his years at Cambridge and just hoped he hadn’t made too much of an exhibition of himself at the time. Although wasn’t he making an exhibition of himself now?

“Hello,” he managed. “I don’t think anything’s broken.”

“Only most of the front of your car.” Stewart, grinning, drew out a handkerchief then applied it to Miles’s nose. “And your cover, Miles. Although not as badly as it might have been had I let the farmer perform first aid.”

“Oh.” He morphed Millie’s voice into his own; a more nasal version than normal, although he didn’t think his nose was actually broken. “Is it so obvious?”

“Only to somebody who admired your Rosalind.”
