Great Imagination......

Here's your chance to vote on who gets an award!

Those of you who read my Wordzzle #69 post last week (27.06.09) will have noticed I asked for reader's to give their answers to the questions asked by Carol's friends after her untimely death in Iran.  Here's the end of the story:

Some months later the girls were moving out of the house and found a photograph that had slipped down the back of one of drawers that Carol had used in the bedroom. The photograph was of Carol and a good looking, dark skinned man and there was some writing on the back which said

“Here’s to the next mission!”

“Whatever could it mean? Who was the man? What had really happened to Carol?” the girls asked each other
You can read the whole story here.

Those of you who gave answers have fantastic imaginations and I thought everyone should see what you came up with.      So here they are and I'd like everyone who reads this post to vote for their favourite.  The person with the most votes gets this award

which MWM made especially for the occasion.
It is not an award to be passed on, it is just for those I award it to.

So here they are:

Charlie Facwet closed the file at the CIA headquarters and turned to his partner.

"We never should have sent her to Iran. She just wasn't ready.
Dr. John (Dr. John's Fortress)

Oh, a serial killer and a spy. Maybe Carol was going on a mission as a spy in Mendelsholme's house because she knew he was a serial killer but he discovered her plot and killed her.
Nessa (The Crysalis Stage)

Gertrude and Helmer were flying back from Iran.The two dragons had deposited the motorcycle and Carol as she instructed. They told her it was not a good idea but she insisted. Now she was dead.
"She wouldn't be Gert , if you hadn't let go of her and the motorcycle too soon." said Helmer
Fandango (Dragon's Lair)

Carol had found a message from Iran on her E Mail. The message was from the dark skinned man telling her of how he was aiding those wanting freedom. He talked Carol into joining him. Carol used a rented motorcycle to travel in Iran but lacked the skill to travel their roads.
Bettygram (Betty's News)

 My ending is that the dark haired man was her half-brother who unbeknownst to her had been left behind by her father on a trip to pre-Shah Iran. Nursing hatred of his father who abandoned him and his mother for the pretty girl in the U.S., he located her, courted her, lured her to Iran and then had her killed. Now Carol's younger sister had better watch HER step.
Reston Friends

I think the man is a freedom fighter and Carol went to Iran to help and well ...
Dianne (Forks Off The Moment)

I think Carol went off with Mike. When she heard his gang was called the Blue Jays, she thought fate had brought them together. Little did she know that Mike was an undercover infiltrator gathering evidence on gang violence. The Iranian-born leader of a rival motorcycle gang killed them both and shipped their bodies & motorcycles to Iran for disposal. Mike's will show up soon.
CJ (Pro Artz)

A lady found dead in Iran, That is a sad thought. Maybe she just wanted to vote and an uprising broke out
Heather (Random Wandering Thoughts)

 She worked for the CIA, the dark skinned man was both her lover and her control in Iran, and she had been running from the Iranian secret police when she was viciously gunned down and dumped in the quarry.
Richard (Mr Richard's Bloggerhood)

This is my version of the ending: She faked her death. The body looked only slightly like her, but after laying in the sun for a few days it didn't really matter. The passport left with the body was all that was used for identification. She was now diguised as an Iranian, working with the dark skinned man and others to try to find out where the votes of the presidential election were kept and then take digital pictures of all of them and transmit copies to other countries so a recount could be done outside Iran. If the recount showed that the other person actually won, this would turn world opinion more strongly against Iran's leaders and give the protesters in Iran a stronger reason to fight.
Stephen (Stephen's Thoughts)

So who, in your opinion, deserves the Imagination Award?   Let me know in the comments who get's your vote.

I don't wish to leave you with the impression I don't comment, but I have to confess- when I see Wordzzle or Portrait of Words- I don't read them.. No offense meant, but if I don't read them, I can't really comment...sorry..

Fiction- I prefer movies... Non- fiction, I read avidly! When younger, I read far more fiction than most people do in a lifetime- Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, etc...Still have 100's of books in boxes- not counting my 260+ cookbooks!

bettygram said...

I liked Fandango.

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

I didn't vote because I can't decide for one over any of the others.

Cloudia said...

Glad you are the judge, not me!!

Akelamalu said...

Oh thankyou Salute I'll be over later. :)

You just don't like blog fiction then Buff :)

One vote for Fandando then Bettygram

Well that's a good enough reason Nick. :)

Oh no I'm not choosing Cloudia my commenters are. :)

Raven said...

Well, I'm ashamed of myself that I didn't leave an ending. Phooey on me. I'm torn between Stephen's ending and Reston Friends as my favorites, but I think I'll go with Reston. I'm probably too late voting anyway. Sigh. I'm such a bad blog friend.

Akelamalu said...

Not too late Raven that's a vote for Reston then. :)
