|Two theives desperate for money go on a mission fraught with danger|
Elsa and Armando Two thieves desperate for money take on a dangerous mission The two conspirators sat in a coffee shop and she, Elsa, and he, Armando, sipped on black coffee. Armando's eyes darted quickly around the bright, cheerful café; he wanted to see if anyone was eavesdropping on him. He spoke in hushed tones, “Look babe, it is an easy snatch,” “we just jimmy the lock, go in and take him.” “Yeah I know” replied Elsa but what if he you know makes noises? Armando thought for a minute then he huffed, “we will drug him first” That night Elsa and her main squeeze Armando drove silently in their beat up silver Cadillac to the crumbling mansion on the hill. The two kidnappers side stepped the huge mounds of poop which were everywhere. “Wow, that hound must have eaten Chicago,” snarled Armando. “And Texas too,” noted Elsa. Maybe we should have taken Bubs on board. “You know to handle a hound of that size.”” Nah, he's hooked up with Louie on the south side.” “They have their own scam “Armando intoned Having made it through the front yard, the two evil doers tiptoed over to an open window. Elsa peered inside and put her hand on her hip, “well one of us has got to go in and it ain't gonna be me.” Armando said,” yeah and you're too fat, so I guess it's me.” With that, Armando stuck his head in the screen door and the rest of his muscular body followed. He landed with a thud on the kitchen floor of Ms. Sarah's mansion. The kitchen had all the modern accoutrements, a toaster, dish disposal, chrome spigots, and a gas range top. The floor was linoleum with green and tan squares. Armando went over to the kitchen door and let Elsa in. “Bout time, it's freezing out there” she hissed. “Yeah, go tell it to the marines.” He snapped back. Once inside Elsa and Armando flattened themselves against the wall and slid to the exit of the kitchen. Quietly they scampered down the hallway and up the carpeted steps. Under one door a light shone, and Armando and Elsa could see four tiny feet. “Didn't youse say she was a big dog?” That's what Bubs told me. Answered Armando. “Well this will be a piece of cake pal.” With that Elsa and Armando burst inside. A small yorkie named Kupcake sat and wagged its tail at them. Elsa quickly snatched Kupcake and put her in her bag. All of a sudden a terrible growl was heard and the bag began to shake. One foot jammed out of the bag and Kupcake escaped. Armando quickly side stepped the charging Kupcake. Kupcake lunged at him again and got him on the jugular. With that Armando and Elsa raced down the stairs out of the house and into their car. Armando turned on the ignition and sped off. “I don't care if we coulda netted ten million.” Said Elsa, that dog was just too mean for me. Tweet
