  1. Standing alone on the elevator, he glanced down at the briefcase held firmly in his hand, the thin chain extending to the the cuff around his wrist mostly hidden by the sleeve of his jacket.  Best to be as inconspicuous as possible, given his mission. He looked again at the lights marking his ascension, willing it to hasten it’s arrival at his destination. Suddenly the upward movement stopped and the doors slid open silently. He saw the lone man step quickly and purposely through the door.  Then, just before he felt it, he saw the glint of light reflecting on the stiletto in his hand.

  2. “I’ve found your car boss and the briefcase. They were just where you said they’d be.”
    “Good lad, Billy. Now, I want you to give the car a good clean and bring it back to me as soon as you can. I’m taking Mrs P. out for a meal tonight and I want it looking at its best. And Billy, while you’re at it, get rid of the body in the boot, there’s a good lad.”

  3. They had attached the briefcase securely with a handcuff, told Lawrence he’d be surveilled the entire trip, and said that if he deviated from their instructions even one iota, they would remotely blow the briefcase, the hacked hardware contained therein, and him to smithereens.

    Now, as he sat in the crowded train terminal, hands tucked under the coat lying on his lap in an attempt to hide the chain, he wished the talkative man in the seat next to him would just shut-up and leave him alone—they might blow the devise simply because he was speaking to another person!

    “I’m sorry to end our conversation, but I have so much on my mind,” he said cutting the gentleman off mid-sentence, then turning his body away in his seat. There was a disgruntled intake of breath, then the jostling of coat, hat, and luggage as the guy got up in a huff and walked away through the crowd.

    Good riddance, Lawrence thought as he turned his head to see the top of the man’s head disappear in the mass of people.

    That’s when he noticed the briefcase was missing from the end of the handcuff.

    1. A great piece of writing. Loved the last line. The whole piece had me wondering what was in the briefcase the was so important and left me wondering if the person who has taken it is about to come to a sticky and explosive end.
