(SORRY I MISSED THE LAST CHALLENGE!)
YAY, another writing challenge! #Excited Anyways, AAWC is hosted by Zielle, and I guess it’s kinda like CPC! I’m on Team Meadows!
On to the story…..
My dreams that night were weird- like usual. A man riding chickens, eating popcorn and shouting “I’m coming!”. After a while, I woke up – to see a face staring at me. A familiar face. The face of him. Charles Bladd, the person I robbed houses with.
“You know, seeing your face first thing in the morning isn’t as amazing as you think,” I said as I got out of bed and walked over to the bathroom.
“Really?” He asked in a mocking voice.
“Ohh, yes. Is there water today or….”
“Nope, water supply cut off again.”
I groaned. We both hadn’t bathed for weeks. As I was swimming in my thoughts about hot water, Charles shook me.
“C’mon! Put the masks on, we’re robbing the Robin House today.”
I laughed. “Robining the Robin house?”
“Wow. Just wow. Hurry up.”
I put the mask on and made my way out, with my backpack.
“So, the plan: We sneak in, grab the expensive things, and come back here,” Charles explained it to me like I was a baby.
“I know the plan Mr Smarty Pants!” With that, we both marched down the tunnel, the forest, and everything they had built to keep us safe. After a hour, we reached the house.
I was tied up, with Charles. Seriously? We had to be tied together?
We were brought to the old house, and then given our instructions.
“Everyday 3 days, you will rob a new house, and bring back everything here. Every 3rd Friday, I will come here, and get everything, and along with that, I will tell you the names and addresses of the houses you both are to rob the following week. Oh and, I will drop off food. Lots of it.”
And he was gone.
End Of Flashback
We were here. The Robin House. It was a small house, classic bricks, with a black door. We walked up the little path, and pushed against the door. Open. Funny how 80% of the houses we’ve robbed are unlocked. The inside of the house was weird. The interior was beautiful, but the air… seemed fishy.
We both looked around, but… nothing.
“This is surprising…..” I said.
Charles nodded, “Usually we would have spotted – There!” He pointed at a safe.
We both ran towards it, and his fingers started to do their magic. While he was doing that, I looked around the room one more time, just in case I spotted something that we had missed before. Nothing, but I did see a little rug. Grinning, I held it up and announced:
“Oh my, this would look so cute on you!”
Charles shot me his “annoyed look” and grunted,
“Be quiet! I’m trying to crack this safe.”
“Really? Never would have guessed!”
And that is the end! I hope you enjoyed that! Bye!
P.S – Sorry it was so short!
