Previously On Evening With Eva….
Days back when they attended the premier of a movie at Royal Lamerta Hotel. They were attending as a couple and were all smiles as they got interviewed on the red carpet.
As the Video Jockey interviewed Eva who was holding on to Sark’s arm, Sophia walked in to the Galleria.
She was dressed in a beautiful red short sleeved gown which accentuated her curves. She wore light make up and her beautiful face shone in the illumination of the room. However, she was not alone.
There were a few agents in the room in strategic positions and a handful outside the building. Sophia wore a gold necklace with a golden Versace head pendant.
It was not just a pendant. It was a tiny but powerful indoor camera. The agents in a black ford van six buildings away from the hotel

It was a bit rowdy when they got to the premier of the movie. The parking lot was filled to the brim and cars had begun to park on the streets. The chauffer driving them found a spot just adjacent the Galleria entrance and parked the white Range Rover Autobiography Exquisite Edition neatly.
Sark and Eva were attending as a couple and were all smiles as they got off the jeep and walked to the red carpet. For Sark it was an opportunity to get out of the house and get some air after eleven days of compulsory house arrest. He saw nothing amusing about the whole charade.
He was not going to be in any sort of action. The Colonel’s instruction was to be all smiles and play nice. He itched for action. He had not used the gym in close to two weeks. His muscles already felt flabby. He wanted to feel alive. He fought the temptation to break away from Eva and snoop around.
He knew he was not going to get any chance to do that. Eva was to make sure of that. He kept up the act, smiling dryly at the cameras and posing intermittently for the paparazzi.
For Eva it was another day to show off her curves, to display her beauty and to be naughty. The Colonel was on the thirteenth floor of a bank, three hundred yards opposite the Galleria. He had already set up his devices, and was looking through the eyes of his powerful binoculars, monitoring guests and waiting for his golden fish to arrive.
There was a sniper rifle set up on a tripod to his left, overlooking the street through an open window. For the Colonel it was a night to strike the predator. He was going to wait for the perfect moment, and then he would attack. Unseen. Unnoticed. As the Video Jockey interviewed Eva who was holding on to Sark’s arm, Sophia walked in to the Galleria.
She was dressed in a beautiful red short sleeved gown which accentuated her curves. She wore light make up and her beautiful face shined in the illumination of the room. Sark saw her first. His eyes met Sophia’s. They were locked in that gaze for about 10 seconds until someone accosted Sophia, asking that she take a picture with him.
Eva was busy replying the questions from the VJ. However she had seen Sophia too, but none of them noticed. Sark scratched the middle of his head with his forefinger
The Colonel saw the sign.
“Roger that papi. I see her.” The Colonel said.
Sark heard it through the wireless earpiece that was carefully and strategically placed inside his left ear. He brought his hand to his moustache, rubbing it gently. It was a sign to tell the Colonel that he had lost visual of Sophia.
“Sir, you look really good. What are your expectations for this movie?” The VJ asked Sark
“I think it is going to be a great watch thank you. We want front row seats so we have to go now.” Sark replied, cutting him off and leading Eva away from the red carpet and towards the cinema room. As they walked, Sark whispered to her ears,
“Is she alone?”
Eva did not turn or look sideways. She knew the message was not for her but for the Colonel.
“For now she looks alone. But I doubt that she came here unaccompanied. Soon, I will be able to sniff out her goons. They are doing a good job of blending in right now but they will give themselves away before long.” The Colonel replied to Sark’s ears.
“Okay Davinci.” Sark finished.
They stood in a queue, waiting for the cinema room to be opened so that they could go in and watch the movie.
Sophia was still on the red carpet taking pictures and signing autographs. She was widely known for her varying range of designer clothing called SophFactor and the humanitarian works she was deeply engaged in.
She watched as Sark and Eva moved to the waiting line and noticed how close he whispered to Eva. She fought the desire to grab Sark and kiss him softly on the lips. He was looking very handsome and cool. However, she was not alone.
There were a few agents in the room in strategic positions and a handful outside the building. Sophia wore a gold necklace with a golden Versace head pendant. It was not just a pendant. It was a tiny but powerful indoor camera.
There were five agents in a black ford van six buildings away from the Galleria, working the phones and watching every single surveillance footage within a kilometer radius of the vicinity.
Kojo was in the van and he was responsible for Sophia’s safety. He had access to the tiny powerful camera embedded within her necklace.
“A lovely couple, aren’t they?” Kojo said
The golden studs that Sophia had in her ear holes were not just earrings. They were audio receptors to listen in on whatever information Kojo and other agents had for her.
“Kojo. You really want to look for trouble don’t you?” Sophia replied, walking towards the cinema entrance to join the already long queue of waiting people. She spoke very subtly, barely opening her lips. Nobody noticed anything.
“Pardon me ma’am. It was just a harmless observation.” Kojo replied.
Sophia cleared her throat, making soft grunting sounds. Kojo understood what she wanted.
“It’s a code green. Targets are visible and the weather is good enough to tango. We are keeping close watch on the two lovebirds. If we get a point of entry, we will pass the information to you at once.” Kojo said.
“Okay. Good. What can you see from CAM 2?” Sophia said again, very quietly covering her lips with her left palm
CAM 2 was the surveillance camera attached to the door allowing entry into the viewing room.
“All clear. Sark has been whispering into Eva’s ears too often. I’m thinking they may be scheming something. Be careful Agent S.” Kojo said.
Sophia did not reply.
She reached into her pretty diamond studded purse and took out a small lipstick. It had a button attached to it. It was not a lipstick but an ultra sound disrupter. When activated, it sends very high pitched frequencies through the radio waves, disrupting any kind of signal for the 50 meters.
She had brought the ultra sound disrupter just so that she could ascertain if Sark was having help from outside. She had earlier warned all agents working with her that when Kojo gave the sign, they should all deactivate their ear buds so that they do not get affected by the disrupted signal.
Sophia brought the lipstick to her chest level so that Kojo could have a good view. She held it there for three seconds. It was more than enough time for Kojo to warn the others. As the queue began to move slowly she pressed the button.
Immediately Sophia pressed the button, Sark held his head in his hands. He was in excruciating pain. Eva tried asking him what the problem was but Sark was in too much pain and unable to reply. He tried to control the pain, but it was sharp and tore through his head.
The device in his ear was delivering a very high pitched sound and only he could hear it. The people behind him wondered what was going on. Eva tried desperately to talk to him but he would not reply. Still in pain, he put his left forefinger into his left ear and pulled out the tiny round device. He felt relieved. He held the tiny device in his hands as they entered the very dark viewing room.
“I think it’s faulty. It almost turned me deaf.” Sark said to Eva, handing the device to her.
Eva collected the device from him, keeping it in a small area of her handbag. As they climbed the stairs in the viewing room and walked through the row of seats, Sark looked round and backwards. The room was dark but he was hoping that he could pick out a familiar face. He could not.
Sophia smiled. She had witnessed the small drama. Her instincts had been right after all. Sark and Eva were not working alone.
The Colonel opened a plastic bottle of Coke and drank the contents up till half. He had lost contact with Sark a few minutes back. At first he almost panicked. But when the transponder came on again, he understood what had happened.
Someone had used a Sound Disrupter. Before the connection went off, there was a brief static. He had heard Sark’s barely audible groan before the connection came back on. He had tried to re-establish contact, calling Sark’s name several times to no avail.
Some one knew that Sark was not alone. The Colonel knew that if he decided to go in, the whole operation would be jeopardized. That was exactly what they wanted him to do. Draw him out of obscurity and nail him. Sark was going to have to find a way out of this one on his own. Deep inside him, The Colonel had no doubts whatsoever of what of he was capable of.
He sipped his coke and prayed that all would go well.
