On Hippo Majesty’s Secret Service

Harry (He’s back after so much love last time for his day out) was just getting ready for a stroll when the phone rang, it was lucky he had his coat on as MI6 were the ones ringing. “Harry, is that you, get over to Scotland Yard as quick as possible, they have a lead on “The Assassin”.

Harry ran to The Tube, he was in a cold sweat, he was always ready to face danger in service of the nation, yet the thought that “The Assassin” was back in London chilled his bones, though since leaving his river in Africa he’d often been cold. He’d battled that Super Villain before, in fact he’d lost many friends, some of the best Double Hippo Agents the nation had were lost in the fight.

He got off the tube at St James and headed straight to Scotland Yard, who would the tip off be from, could it be true, was the worlds most dangerous criminal back here in the greatest city on earth?

Of course he had to wait for the Chief Inspector, he always had to wait for a policeman, it’s London after all. But the tip off was good, Jimmy Smith of The Bethnall Green Boys had admitted to helping smuggle some diamonds into Belgravia. That was the first lead, Harry knew he had to act fast.

Harry wanted to get there as fast as possible but he also had to take a very cute Hippo Lady to the theatre that night. He threw on his formal gear, grabbed his specially made Umbrell-o-copter and flew there. He started to look everywhere.

Harry had to admit defeat after searching without clues, he thought he would work his sources and find out as much as he could by visiting as many as possible. At last, he got a tip off, “The Assassin” was plotting to use the lasers to build a Ray-Gun that could hold the government to ransom. It was said that the final part needed was hidden somewhere near Whitehall so Harry set a stake out.

He didn’t find the evil genius, but he did see a known associate. The following day he went to see more sources to find out why he’d seen Three Fingered Trevor loitering about, he knocked on every door he could.

Harry knew something was wrong, it was starting to get really cold, and it shouldn’t be. He knew that the strange weather and the deadliest person in the world being in London must be linked, but he just couldn’t find him no matter how hard he searched.

Will Harry ever find “The Assassin”, will London be saved from the giant Ray-Gun?

Harry will keep looking, make sure you keep reading for all the answers and more.
