“Maybe the thief has…” She stopped short with her rambling as a customer crossed the threshold. Luna semi-grinned at the young man who’d purchased chewing gum the night before.
The stranger’s navy blue pullover appeared to be too big for his skinny frame and just as before, his thick beard and attached hood hung down toward his face and made it hard to pick out any unique facial features. He ambled to the middle of the store, looked around and approached the counter. Blood-shot eyes focused on her.
Luna rubbed her neck and shivered as a chill crossed her arms. Engulfed with a sense of uneasiness she moved her hand closer to the underside of the counter where she’d stashed her revolver. “May I help you?”
“Sure.” He smirked. “Gimme the cash now.” Clenched teeth followed the harsh whisper as he pulled a gun from his pocket and waved it toward the register.
“Okay. Calm down. No one needs to get hurt.” Luna barely moved her left hand while her mind replayed tactics she’d been taught in target shooting. Any distraction will give you time to make a move.
“Hurry it up.” The robber exhaled. His cheeks flared.
“What’s that?” Luna glanced to her right and slightly changed her tone, as if excited. “Lady.” The man trailed her gaze.
The response was quick, but it gave Luna the second she needed. She grabbed her gun, stepped back and squeezed the trigger. A bang filled the room.
The robber lost grip on his firearm and fell to the floor.
He stretched out his hand to go for the revolver.
Another thunderous blast echoed in the room.
Luna’s Treasure is available from Amazon.
