“The price of freedom” by Azalea Silver
The bank's workers cowered in fear at the semi-automatic rifle gun pointed at their heads. The funny thing was that the figure that was currently robbing their bank had no accomplices. He held the gun with steady, gloved hands and glared at the workers with steely eyes from behind his ski mask.Never in all the years since that little town was founded, had there ever been a robbery of any sort in that bank. Though, the barrel of the gun he was holding was as real as can possibly be."Open the vault." He said, his voice cold, g...
“A Real Mom” by ℤ ℍ☮️
Aileen walked into the bank. It was pretty simple. No mask. No gun. No threat. All she had to do was act like an eighteen year old who wanted to transit five-hundred dollars for a mall-stop. She usually twisted her hair with her fingers and used the words "like" and "umm" excessively. But today she wanted to go big with a uniform, a mask, and the whole gig.Aileen wasn't doing this for the money. It was more for the news. One day, her mom would think about her. One day, her mom would see her on the news and rush to the cr...
“The Absurd World of Mandy Rose” by Courtney Haynes
MANDYUsually, a sexy hot thing making demands would be the highlight of my day. This, however, is not the highlight I expected.To start things off, for most of the week I was pretty damned sure I had just failed all four of my exams, putting the nail in the coffin of my lackluster college career. Everything was floating around in my mind a mishmash of questions. Please write out the quadratic equation. Locate the Pyloric Sphincter on the pig. Explain how Jean-Paul Sartre’s belief in the ...
“I Want To Get To Know You” by Jaiden Hornung
I crept through the bank as quietly as I could. I knew nobody was there, but there was such thing as cameras. I walked past a large room and when I looked inside, I almost screamed in delight. There it was: the vault. It contained about Ninety Billion dollars inside. I ran up to it, knowing there were no ''booby traps''. No one in the whole world was stupid enough to try and break into this particular bank. No one except me, Hina Masuko, world's greatest thief. I have never been caught. Ever. And I never will, for that m...

“Interstate 93” by Roth Sassin (inactive)
Enzo Enzo slips through the crowded streets. He's almost there. His hands flick out every few seconds, grabbing this man's wallet, and that woman's watch. By the time he gets to the ladder, his pockets are stuffed to the brim. "Ya got a nice haul today, Enzo," says someone from the roof the ladder leads to. He climbs the ladder quickly. "Couldn't help myself, Lok. And you k...
“From Dusk 'Till Dawn” by Black Raven
We are here at last! After months of long, boring planning the show is about to start! There were so many different candidates, and I wanted to do them all, but knowing Ace, I should have known better. He's always all about planning and making rational decisions. If you can consider robbing banks all over the world something rational. Unlike him, I don't care about planning. I think it's a total waste of my time. I pref...
“The Last Time” by Josie Doefer
Kathy took a drag on from her cigarette. It had been a long day. She pressed down as hard as she could stand on the new hole in her liver as a steady stream of blood came oozing between her fingers. She couldn’t feel them anymore but she could see her feet splayed out in front of her crossing the hall floor. Her back was to the wall in more than one way. Things had been awful all day. First she hadn’t gotten breakfast a...
“The Robin Hood Foundation ” by Emily Germaine
I jumped over the log, my heart racing. They’ve just killed my wife... The best criminal duo of the 19th century is now a solo. I heard them yelling behind me, snow crunching under our feet and my hands covering my head. A gunshot echoed out, missing me completely but scaring bird out of the trees. I didn’t even know where to go… If I took them back to my house, then they’d know whe...
“I have never robbed a bank before.” by Oleg Shleyfer
" But I have never ever robbed the bank before, " said Max. " Easy , brother, relax. Just follow my lead and everything will be all right," said Tom with a charged green. " Look, I do have a perfect plan. Just think about what you are going to do with all those money! You can fly around the world, buy cars, girls, expensive cloth, need celebrities. " " No can do," said Max. "I , I cannot stea...
“Fatal Fate” by Navneeth N
“Go, go, go!” Clad black figures started trying to work faster, but their energy was wearing thin. Luckily, there wasn’t much left to unload. They threw stacks and stacks at a time, letting them strew everywhere on the back of the van. At last, it was done. They stood back and admired their handiwork while alarms blared inside the building a few blocks away. They didn’t have muc...
“Reasonable Doubt” by Linda Rossi
It wasn’t exactly the crime of the century. Robbing the local bank and credit union in the middle of the day on a dare was a stupid thing to do by anyone’s standards. But Matthew wasn’t exactly the brightest bulb in the pack; not the sharpest knife in the drawer. You know, all those idioms referring to someone who wasn’t very smart. He robbed the credit union on a dare. A dare! Really, who ...
“What Can I Do For You” by Joe Swanson
What Can I Do For You “What is this?” “What does it look like?” It looks like a note, because, it is a note, written on what looks to be the back of an advertisement proclaiming the double decker to be the juiciest burger ever, “Subliminal.” I look from the paper into his steely black eyes, bulbous face, and habitually worn stocking cap, adorned with the rem...
“Glitches ” by Djuanna Lester
“Move!” Gabby hopped back in the car, throwing the bag of coins in the back of the car as I moved the gear shift, pressed my foot on the accelerator, and took off. “I can’t believe it’s happening. Check Ins are today.” She sighed, clearly holding back tears. Check Ins. They’ve been around since Fallsted was first formed. My parents made the rules clear. Don’t be out at night. M...
