Tiny Tuesday – “The Hacker”

9 Oct

“I’m in,” whispered Raoul, cracking and flexing his fingers like an athlete stretching before a race. He pounced on his keyboard, typing fast, code scrolling across his monitor so quickly it could hardly be read. Didn’t matter. He didn’t need to. A single typo could bring the entire architecture crashing down, but he knew there weren’t any.

There was a clunk as the vault lock disengaged. The steel door swung open, and the walls sparkled.

A glittering diamond, baseball-sized, sat on a plinth. Raoul seized it.

“Thank you, Tiffany,” he breathed.

The alarm was silent, and so was the SWAT team.
