60 Second Interview With No.86

    “Do you like my dress?”
    “Yes very nice. Now allow me to as you a question.”
    “Go on then!”
    “What happened to you?”
    “What do you mean, and exactly who are you?”
    “I am Number One-one-three, and this is my photographic colleague Number One-one-three b, we contribute to The Tally Ho.”
    “Smile” click goes the camera.
    “What do you want with me?”
    “We are looking for the human story behind The Village, and you are our next story. We’ll put you on page one.”
    “Or page three….smile” click goes the camera.”
    “What does he mean about page three? The Tally Ho doesn’t have a page three!”
    “And there isn’t any film in his camera either!”
    “Look I’m actually on an important assignment for Number Two.”
    “Well we won’t keep you long. What happened to you Eighty-six?”
    “You’ve asked me that before.”
    “There is no denying that you are a very attractive surgeon, who carries out a particularly nasty operation on certain subjects, the operation known as a leucotomy. And no doubt it was you who developed this new clinical way of conducting a former barbaric operation. Also, as a surgeon you cut a figure of authority, in other words, you wore the slacks!”
    “I’ll take that as a compliment.”
    “But now you have become nothing more than Number 6’s constant companion. You’ve changed out of your slacks and put on a dress. When you did that your character changed.”
    “What are you talking about?”
    “Wearing a dress makes you more feminine, you have become flirtatious, weak, you have been reduced to a sex object! The former Eighty-six wouldn’t have allowed Number Six to run rings round you. Is that why you changed?”
    “What are you talking about?”
    “If you had not had a sudden change in character you would never have allowed Number Six to turn the tables on you the way he did, and that would have made it impossible for him to hypnotise you and use you as a tool to achieve his own ends!”
    “Well I like that!”
    “The thing is, there always has to be a flaw in the plan, and if there isn’t, a flaw is contrived simply because Number Six has to win, if not all the time, then some of the time!”


Be seeing you
