Flash fiction: “An easy job”

How did I get here? Why did I let things go this far? This was supposed to be an easy job. In and out, nobody was going to get hurt.

How did we end up surrounded by police with no chance of escaping?

”Have any great plans?” Tyler asked me.

”Not yet,” I told him. He stormed out of the room. He was probably going to check up on our hostages.

How did we get here?

I looked out the window, careful not to show any more of my body than I had to.

The police were up to something. They hadn’t moved since we got the first call but now they where.

What where they up to?

Tyler came back into the room and called me over.

”I think I know what to do” He said.

I didn’t like the tone of his voice. It was the same excited tone he had used before we got ourselves into this mess.

”We get everyone to undress, and then we just walk right out of here with them” He pointed towards the room where we held our hostages.

”And how did you think that would work? It sounds like something out of a movie.”

”I will work”

I couldn’t believe what he was saying. How did I ever think that partnering up with this guy was a good idea?

”It’s now or never Mark” He said ”The police are coming through those doors at any minute”

I was never going to work.

How did I get here?

I looked out the window one more time. The group of police that had gathered outside was gone.

Where had they gone?

”Let’s…” That was all Tyler managed to say before he fell dead to the floor. A single gunshot to his head.

A loud bang followed by the screams of people telling me to get down on the floor was the last thing I heard before I raised my gun.

I didn’t have time to pull the trigger.
