Road Ends

Mark sighs.

Nora glares.

They brace.

Quiet continues.

Caper commences.
Hands signal.

Countdown begins.

Hearts pound.

Sprints start.
Spotlights dodged.

Lock picked.

Cameras evaded.
Toes tip.

Legs climb.
Room entered.
Painting dismantled.

Canvas tears.
Combination ascertained.

Safe opened.

Jewels stolen.
Art returned.

Feet scurry.

House exited.

Car starts.
Wheels screech.

Odometer spins.

Border crossed.

Money exchanged.

Retirement begins.
