The Black Cat - Chapter three
Chapter one you will find it here, and the list of all the chapters is here.
The entrance was opening onto three different wings: on the left was the Egyptian room, on the right the Chinese room, and finally in front of us was the entrance to more modern art. Or so they call it. There was also two other doors. What is it with closed doors that make me want to open them?
Litia smiled "Why not see the paintings first?"
"It won't be a problem, it looks cheap." She didn't seemed to be too bothered about it. It was her job to know after all, and for me to trust her judgment. "I will only have to control what they see but you will need to place a bug on their system for me."
I had placed her bug more than ten minutes ago now, she should have been in by now.
"I do not know what is in that box, but someone is trying really hard to keep it secure. I'm in, moving the camera so it won't see you. Go ahead."
It took me less than 15 seconds to pick the lock and push the door.
"I think I found the safe."
Carefully I looked beneath it from the side, removed the triggers and slowly pulled it down to the ground.
It was the only item the safe was containing, so I had to assume it was the box I was hired to get.
"I left the bag outside, I have to go back out before security comes looking for me in there."
"I hear sirens, I will move to the delivery point now. Call them to announce me and I will let you know when I am done." I removed the headset, placing it in one of the side pockets.
There was only one man sitting in the area, and his own outfit wasn't exactly formal enough either. Maybe he also was the reason of the bouncer's ire.
"Red phone... for my red hair?" I swear I could hear him smiling... if such thing was possible.
"Actually yes, my partner thought you would like the color." Another man... a voice that I had heard before, I was sure of it.
"Except a car it seems no one was hurt and I hear you haven't removed anything else. Congratulations, you got the job."
Thank you for reading, I wish you all Happy Holidays!
