How It Begins
(from the closing scenes of "Candy's Vacation")
Candy Dashwood, top female MI6 agent has recovered a stolen computer tape-reel from Roland DeWinter (evil agent of STORMZ) in the small French resort of Monte Allegro. Due to meet her superior, Mr D, in the small cafe in the town square to complete the hand-over, she has risen early for a long swim. Her lover Marcel awaits her back in the beach-hut nearby...)
Marcel stirred sleepily, dimly aware of a presence in his room. Warm memories of the previous night's lovemaking came back to him and he smiled faintly, as he swam back to the waking world. The figure moved closer to the bed now, intimately close. "Candy, cheri, did you enjoy your swim?" he murmured as he rolled over onto his back to greet his lover.
The apparition standing over him was not Candy Dashwood. \bHe struggled to rise from the bed as the obese Korean woman's massive hand pushed him back into the mattress.
"Not Missy Dashwood," squeaked the woman in an incongruously high voice, "Mama Ho love you in special way."
Marcel, his struggles in vain against the massive strength of his assailant began to cry for help, until Mama Ho's fist broke his jaw for him.
She produced a long butcher knife from behind her back and began to plunge it into his belly over and over again, like a machine repeating the same action endlessly. Marcel's cries became first frantic, then incoherent, then fainter and fainter as the massive woman sliced him open in a frenzy.
Behind Mama Ho her companion, Hugo, was rifling through the room. He finally found what he was looking for taped beneath one of the drawers and held the reel of tape aloft in triumph.
"I have it." he grinned, "Do we wait for the girl?"
"No way," squeaked Mama Ho, "You like that girl too much, all last night looking down dress. We go now, give tape to boss, call police. Girl get arrested for killing boyfriend. All happy ending."
Candy Dashwood, blissfully unaware of anything amiss strolled happily back up the beach from the sea, shaking the dampness from her blonde hair and exchanging happy pleasantries with the other guys and girls on the beach. As she entered the cabin she saw at once something was wrong- the bedroom door half ajar revealed a spreading bloodstain on the carpet and as she dashed in and saw Marcel's butchered corpse she cried aloud with grief and shock.
Training superceding instinct she checked the hiding place of the tape reel and found it gone. Blinking back tears she whirled as she heard the sharp rap on the cabin door
Revenge could wait, first she had to remain free and find that tape reel. Candy leapt out of the open window at the back of the cabin, closing it behind her as the police burst down the door...."
- It is one of few AIF games with a female PC.
