Welcome to Telbat’s Tablet! This is Dee today with a couple of short stories from David Telbat’s first blogging days. They both feature early COIL characters on missions—one in Belarus, and one in Brunei.

Secure Worship, Part I—Belarus
by D.I. Telbat
Jesse “Milk” Patters watched the surveillance monitor that was installed in a small room of a Belarusian church. The building doubled during the day as a community center, but tonight, it was a gathering place for believers. On Milk’s screen, a tall figure in dark clothes prowled from shadow to shadow, inching closer to their building. The rest of the city was quiet.

Secure Worship, Part II—Brunei
by D.I. Telbat
Quin “Toad” LuDao lay on his belly on the church roof. He was perspiring in the humid night air of Brunei. Suddenly, he started to slide down the pitched tin roof. Once a Special Forces soldier in China, Toad tried not to panic, though the fall to the ground could break his leg, or worse.

Both of these stories were first published on our Telbat’s Tablet website in April 2011. They were inspired by their characters found in Dark Liaison, A Christian Suspense Novel, Book One in The COIL Series by D.I. Telbat. You’ll find these same characters in other COIL novels as well.
