Out-of-Order Challenge - He's No Hero
Niles stood from the table and walked into the tiny kitchen. “It’s a good plan, June. You shouldn’t worry so much.”
“I know…I know…It’s just…” June trailed off uncomfortably.
“What?” I said impatiently.
June looked down at the papers scattered across the table. The floorplan, the escape route, the bank’s records. “I feel like we’re not ready for the security. I know there’s only the one guard, but we don’t know what the hell he’s gonna do when we get in there.”
“He’s no hero.” I said. “Twelve bucks an hour won’t be enough with Niles waving a gun in his face.”
“Right.” Niles said, emerging into the room with a beer in his hand. “I got him. No problem.”
June still looked uncomfortable, but nodded quietly.
That settled, I changed the subject. “Now, I got the car. It’s a good old Buick. V8. Black. Fast. It’s a good ride and’ll do what we need.”
I eyed the route. Confidence mixed with excitement.
Niles leaned over and kissed June’s forehead in the way husbands do.
