March 1917 Near Vimy Ridge
“Gut. Gut, Hahn.” Luis mentally filed away the information Rufus had acquired for him.
Rooster thought he fed Luis tidbits from Ostermann’s headquarters for the purpose of speeding the war along. It had taken some time for Rooster to trust Luis, but eventually he had jumped into the plan with both feet.
Luis hoped Rooster still thought him a German Lieutenant who passed along information to the British, but there were moments when Rooster looked at him just so that Luis was sure he knew the truth. He counted on the fact that Rooster didn’t much care. He was game for whatever shortened the war. Luis had convinced him that what they were doing would help.
“Ja. If the British concentrate on breaking through at this point,” Rooster whispered, pointing to an area on the tunnel map he’d pilfered from the general’s HQ, “that would be best. It’s the least watched and the closest to their own.”
Hahn had proven himself invaluable. Luis prayed they wouldn’t get caught. Rooster would be labeled a traitor, while he would just be caught as a spy.
Being a traitor is ten times worse, Luis determined.
He would wait for just the right time to pass on what he knew. The map would have to be delivered in person; until then, he had to hide it.
Where do I conceal it? He thought of the possibilities . . .
In my quarters? On my person? Any place was risky. Then an idea popped into his head. My shoe. Yes.
“If I find anything else, I will inform you, Lieutenant.” Rooster looked nervously over his shoulder. “I have to go. The general sent me out to fetch some vodka.” Rooster pulled a bottle out of his pocket. “I must not disappoint, huh?” He grinned.
“Ja. The general must have his liquor. You are dismissed, Hahn.” Luis gave a short, crisp salute.
