Try this if you dare

Mission Impossible?

There are two secret agents, 005 and 007. Each is trying to get his own top scientist out of Slobodia. Agent 005’s man is Dr C. Hoo Dares; 007 is watching Dr B. A. Fraid. To get out of Slobodia secretly they must cross the Purple River, or they will be caught. No one can swim.

A small boat awaits them, hidden along the Slobodian riverbank. The problem is it will carry only two people at a time! To complicate matters, neither scientist dares to be with the other’s agent because science is so hush-hush. (Of course, it is all right when his own agent is there.) For instance, Dr Dares couldn’t possibly row across the river alone with 007.
