DON’T BELIEVE HOW IT SEEMS ( BERLIN, GERMANY 1940)

By Max Barkman, year 6, Vauvert School

“Diese nervötenden Engländer!” emerged in the hubbub. Slouched on the table was a bright red-cheeked man struggling not to squint. A bold voice directed someone to carry him out. Eventually, a wavy walking man dragged him out.
“Teenagers…” I murmured under my breath. Even the bartender looked like he went a bit overboard with alcohol. Strolling secretively, I butted in the military’s conversation. A blank stare matched my arrival. They were anxious about why I wanted their plans, but they spat it out in the end. They told me their plans, I told them false enemy plans…
“Für Deutshland!” one of them cheered.

The dark street was lit dimly by the moonlight, no one was in sight. The coin rolled down the machine.
“Sergeant, I have news. The Germans are coming from the Netherlands as they have them occupied; their destination is Norwich. They think we’ll also be in Norwich so they’ll be exposed and completely surprised,” I whispered into the phone.
“Great, tomorrow get their numbers, okay?” came the ruffled voice out of the phone.
“I don’t know how long I can keep this act up for though,” I answered worriedly.
“No keep it up, this could win us the war, It’s already gone on longer than I wanted,” he snapped infuriated. I mumbled under my breath; hung up.

The clock hit ten, the crow chirped; the day had begun. The cold breeze hit me like a wave, I looked like nothing but a shadow without a human. A wild bark of soldiers shrieked and pointed at me. I tried desperately to get a glimpse of what was happening. Suddenly I suffered a blow to the head...
“Hello English spy,” a strangely familiar voice said, “Why do you think you can simply run away with our plans?”
