The Informer

A fire crackled in the mantelpiece giving warmth to the two people sitting next to it.

"How are things going for you?" asked the man sitting on the left side of the fire

"Not good, dear friend.  Somehow my worst fears have come true" said the other man miserably.

"Worry not, He will be safe where he is going. This is the best and only thing we can do"  Said the first man trying to pacify his friend

"I know, but its still very hard. Specially when i think of her finding out about this. She would be devastated if she ever comes to know about this" said the second man remorsefully

"But what you have done and are doing is a good thing my friend. May God be with You And the "Hope"  we are trying to save" the first man said while getting up to leave from the house.

"Yes, may gods be with us in saving our last chance of freedom" replied the second man.

As the first man closed the door behind him, the second man stared at the fire.

The fire crackled  and then came a sudden voice from it

"It is Time" came a voice from the crackling fire. The Man nodded and moved away.

A jet of fire erupted from the mantelpiece and a something fiery and fierce landed on the silk carpet. The man gasped in astonishment as he saw what emerged from the flames.
