Honor Among Thieves – Part Thirty-Five

Part XXXV 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 XXXV:

 
After saying the preceding words, Cliff reached his arm back out towards Todd and placed the small box gently in his lap. “Conceal this box any way you can. I have come way too far to be discovered.”
 
Todd had no idea how exactly to respond to this, so instead of words, he simply stared straight into Cliff’s eyes, showing that he understood what had been said. A mutual show of acceptance filtered through Cliff’s gaze, after which he closed his eyes and appeared to be meditating right there. After a couple minutes, Todd had become so uncomfortable that he had nothing to do besides stand up and walked away.
 
Before walking away, Todd stuck the box carefully in his underwear to keep it out of sight. It created a very uncomfortable feeling, with one of the corners digging into his groin, but he did his best to take the pain in stride. In fact, the physical sensation was somewhat of a relief to his troubled mind. He still couldn’t believe the situation he had managed to put himself in. After being convicted of such a heinous crime, he had thought the worst was behind him. It just proved to convince him that the sun can always shine on cloudy days, but the world never fails to rain swiftly on one’s parade.
