Out-of-Order Challenge - Opportunity
My heart was pounding. It thumped in my chest like a jackhammer in slow motion. The stairwell echoed my heavy footsteps as I made my way down to the first level. I had the duffel bag slung over my left shoulder…four hundred thousand dollars!
I cracked the door at the bottom and took a careful peak out. Pretty stupid, really. Anybody noticing would be suspicious. There was the Bronco, twenty yards away.
I’m not sure why, but I had to psych myself up to leave the safety of the stairwell.
I walked quickly toward the truck, fumbling with the keys. I noticed I still had the rubber gloves on. I pulled them off and threw them to the ground.
I swear my chest was about to explode.
That’s when I saw the Caddy coming down the ramp. June’s car. Going fast.
Way too fast!
She slammed into the Bronco, sending glass and metal flying. I ran up to the car buried into the side of my Bronco.
Blood. She was slumped over the dash. Dead.
I snatched the backpack and started running.
