Fly Now, Pay Later!

    But the helicopter turned back to The Village you see, and as Number 2 looked up to the sky, I bet he couldn‘t believe his eyes! Why, who gave the order to recall the helicopter? The new Number 2? Certainly not, he was on still on the balcony after being outwitted by Number 6. The Supervisor-Number 26 in the Control Room? It’s unlikely he knew what had taken place during the Appreciation Day ceremony. The helicopter pilot? Why should he fly the helicopter back to The Village, unless there was some mechanical fault. Really there was only one person who could have told the pilot to fly the helicopter back to The Village, the retired Number 2.
    But why should an ex-Number 2 want to go back to The Village, when Number 6 had given him the perfect way out? Because it’s as the retired Number 2 said, they would get him sooner or later, no matter where he went. No doubt he didn’t want to have to keep looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life, waiting for them to come for him, as one day he knew they must. So why not make it easy for himself, and live out the rest of his life in quiet retirement in a Village for which he had done so much, and let them look after him.

Be seeing you
