Advent Puzzle 7: Solved! Cryptic Clue: Unlocked!

Post by Blackvision » Wed Dec 07, 2016 3:05 pm

Phillipe slid the bag across the table in his hand, the bag jingling as it moved. The man on the other side eyed it, then reached to open it, but Phillipe tightened his grip. 'Come on, I've shown you what I'm offering. What've you got for me?'

The man hesitated, then nodded, and produced a bound book, placing it on the table, and likewise keeping his hand on it. 'All the names and locations the airship docked at in the last year. All confirmed with the dock-workers and foreign offices involved.'

Phillipe nodded. 'Then our transaction's complete - you've got the payment, I've got the documents.' He released the bag, reaching over and taking the papers, which the man likewise released.

They both took their respective items and stood slowly, watching each other for signs of trickery, but parted without incident, each walking out of opposing doors.

Philipe glanced at the papers, grinning to himself. He'd find out for sure what treasures Amir had been seeking out with this information - and he'd paid a reasonable amount, all things considered. The first paper drew his eye though. 'Challenge puzzle 7: Phillipes' Challenge'.

An unexpected bonus! He heard a shout of rage from behind and hastened his step, tucking away the documents swiftly. Evidently the exchange hadn't been quite so clear to the other man - perhaps a bag of miniature wooden bells wasn't what he'd been expecting.
