Honor Among Thieves – Part Forty

Part XL of Honor Among Thieves, a short story contemplating the idea those who disobey the law are sometimes more honorable than those who follow them.

Part XL

 
It took several minutes for it all to sink in, after which the feeling of discomfort only continued to grow. Glancing up at the clock on the wall, Todd realized there was just over two hours until the time he would be summoned. This was not nearly enough time to prepare mentally for the events that were about to unfold. He looked at the sketch of his wife that he had drawn on a sheet of paper to help him remember what she looked like. It was a far cry from the work he had seen done by sketch artists, but still better than nothing.
 
Several times he caught himself dozing off and had to keep pinching himself, almost to the point of bleeding, in order to stay awake. How he longed for some coffee to help stay awake. But, alas, he was a prisoner and not able to acquire such things.
 
Meanwhile, Cliff was hard at work organizing the other end of the escape mission. Several of the inmates on his block had managed a way of communicating via carefully passed notes. This was how he had managed to spearhead such a complicated plan. Everything is set, he mused to himself. I am about to be a free man. The 23 other men also had a similar feeling.
 
As the time came, they all waited patiently for the doors to unlock. They had about 15 minutes, they had calculated, to make it down to the holding area. Once they were there, all they had to was wait for Todd to come and blow a hole in the wall so that they could all make their escape into the night.
