A lone man snuck through the dark streets careful not to make a sound. He freezes as he hears noise behind him. His fingers wrap around the package so small but so essential. It only as big as his hand but with it maybe, just maybe he could get what he wanted.
The shaggy black hair stuck to his forehead but from sweat or rain he no longer knew. His blue eyes scanned behind him into the darkness, sadness having dimmed the vibrant happiness that once laid there. Lightning struck above his head as the rain began to pour down. An angry bolt struck a house in the distance. But all this was all only a taste of the storm that was just beginning. The kind of storm that caused flash floods and fires. The storms that any caring mother would keep her child away from. The kind only insane, determined people stood under with their own free will. A splash was heard of a car far away trying to get home as quickly as they possibly could.
Roaring sirens drove by; lights blaring causing the man to push himself against the wall. As soon as they passed he quickly turned around and walked swiftly. His large black trench coat trailing behind him. The sirens were heard coming closer and closer to him making him quickly speed up. A police car skid to a stop in front of him. The man heard shouting and more cars coming. He turned around and ran back the way he came hearing the voices get louder. Ducking around the corner as a shot was fired.
The man darted across the street barely avoiding a black truck. The police ran after him having to stop at the busy street. A few police officers that had tried to corner the man had large dark colored German Shepherds ready to be set loose. After making it across the street, they released the four watching them quickly take off around the corner where they had seen the man disappear.
Glancing behind him the man could hear the barking of the dogs. He ran with new found energy determined not to let them get the package that could change his life forever. Taking the next left he quickly found a large chain link fence. He felt the dogs nipping at his feet and knew he only had seconds, but he was close. The man jumped onto the fence but a dog bit his leg pulling down.
The man’s fingers ached as the dog tried to rip him down. But the man was strong and held himself onto the fence. The other dogs jumped trying to catch his skin in their teeth. The man glanced down before climbing, while the dog shook his head as he was lifted off the ground. The man reached down and pressed on the dog’s reflex point on his neck making him release.
The man then quickly jumped over the fence hearing the policemen shouting behind him. He darted into another ally way and kept running until he no longer heard the voices or dogs. He slowed down. Making sure to get his heart rate down before entering the small motel room.
As he entered his room he shut and locked the door. Then he looked down at his hand and smiled. The small package rested in his palm. He leaned his head back and let out a soft laugh. His future was just around the corner.
