How do I wind up in these messes?
So, here I am…with two outstandingly gorgeous women (one a super spy, the other an investor) sitting outside the mansion home of a third, one Stacie Snow, from what Sasha told us, on a mission of complete randomness…
Brooke and I had kidnapped Sasha Fae to get money from her father…but it turned out that Sasha was a willing player in the mess, and treated Brooke and I very nicely the night before. SO nicely that Brooke agreed to a mission for Sasha just because she asked. She wanted to burgle her college roommate, now well-off-financier, for a bit of cash and some one-upedness.
There were worse ways to go about things, I guess.
So…we bust in to Stacie’s place, and find her just getting back from some kind of function, I guess…she was fairly dolled-up. We grab her, tie her…and Sasha gets this look of just all-around contentedness as she looks down at the fully-bound Stacie.
“Let’s see…,” Sasha says as she rummages through Stacie’s purse. “Yep; secret pocket, just like always. Some people just don’t change, do they, Stacie?” Stacie grunted through her gag as an answer. Sasha tossed a keyring to me. “You two run along. In the living room; point the fob on the keychain to the south wall. That should give you what you need.” At that, Sasha turned back to her captive and caressed her cheek. Looked like it was gonna be a loooooong night for those two.
Us? Brooke and I made for the living room and faced the south wall of the place. Clicked the key fob…and a portion of the wall folded back…
…and it looked like our “financier” was also a small-arms dealer. The room was PACKED with weapons of all makes and types…
“SCORE!” Brooke said and smiled.
“And, an ironic one too. The money I was looking to make was specifically for guns, anyway. Not that I expect to use them on our little caper, but I’m also thinking about future endeavors. Never hurts to be well armed…” Brooke kept talking while she went through the weapons, picking what she felt she needed…I couldn’t help but wonder what was happening in that room behind us…
Stacie Snow for today.
