Rank 8 Out of 10
It was Tuesday, just like any other normal night at work. This was my part-time job in KFC.I had worked here for around two years at this stage. The night passed quickly; it was busy during tea-time and then it gradually began to die down towards the end of the night.
I closed up at 11 pm that night and put the money in the safe. I went to take the rubbish out through the back door. As I extended my hand to open the door, someone from the other side pulled it open and shouted, "Hands where I can see them!"I immediately dropped the rubbish bags and put my hands in the air. There were four men, all wearing the same clothes: black boots, green coats and dark-brown masks. All of them had guns. A guy carried a sack. He threw it at my feet and said "Quick, fill it up, and don’t try to be clever. "It was stern, so I quickly grabbed the sack with my heart crawling into my throat. I caught a glimpse of a black car standing outside in the dark and started walking inside. Three of the men followed me while one stayed at the door."He's on guard" I assumed.
"Is there anyone else here?"One of the men asked me."No, I'm here alone. I was supposed to lock-up the restaurant tonight. I said in a small voice, feeling sorry for myself. And then, as if on cue, I heard the gatekeeper's voice" Did you leave yet?" and then 'Burglars!!! I heard some gun shots. The three men tensed and told me to hurry up. I went up to the safe and mentally slapped myself for forgetting the gatekeeper was there. I could've called for help. But, now it was too late to think about that. I had to take what was coming to me though I hoped the gatekeeper was alright.
"Boom" "Shoot" "Thwack". I heard a lot of gun shots. And then "Hands up and freeze". The sound of crunching wood and then I saw them. The police. I swear, I have never ever been so happy to see the police. The police cuffed the robbers up and took them away in their police car. I saw some other police men put the other man into a second car. I saw an ambulance. And then a stretcher on which the guard was lying "He's gonna be Ok" The guy said; well my zombie look gave it away. I gave a nod and left the place, to a milkshake shop. The one that sold the best milkshakes in town. Because, you see, no matter how messed up my life is, how scared I am, I still have my appetite.
Cheers to the milkshake!
