The Last Adventure
Flynn had been receiving threatening messages for a few weeks now. Of course, he wanted to tell his guardian and wife all about it, but he couldn't.
He knew that she would drop everything else to make sure that he was safe once again, but this time was different. It was about two months before that Eve had told him that he was going to be a father. It was one of the happiest days of his life, except for when the library returned and Eve was brought back to life.
He had done his best to convince her that the best thing for both her and the baby, which he was hoping was a girl, was to back off of missions for a little while in order for the pregnancy to go as smoothly as possible. She had reluctantly agreed, and for that he was very grateful; for no one, especially him, could tell Eve what to do on her good days. There hadn't been a lot of those lately, considering the constant morning sickness she had been experiencing.
For once in his career as a Librarian, Flynn felt helpless. There was nothing he could do to protect her from a natural stage in her pregnancy. He had decided to go on a seemingly easy mission provided by the Clippings Book in a virtually deserted part of the world to find yet another lost artifact from the museum that had not yet been recovered.
Flynn left the apartment he shared with his wife and set out for the remote jungle.
As he was walking through the jungle, he began to remember all the missions he had gone on with Eve, even before he understood how he felt about her. One of his personal favorites was their first trip to London.
There were a few downsides to the mission, but he chose to look at it as his first adventure with his true love. Suddenly, he heard the sound of a gun's safety mechanism clicking off. He turned around slowly.
