Honor Among Thieves – Part Thirty-Four

Part XXXIV 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 XXXIV:

 
The plain, matter of fact way that Cliff spoke made Todd feel extremely uncomfortable. Cliff acted like he was some great leader, but really he was no better than a petty thief. Puzzled, Todd thought better than saying anything and just gazed at him with a blank, empty stare.
 
   “I am planning a great escape and I need your help to succeed,” Cliff said, pulling a small wooden box out from behind his back. “There are a couple things you will need from me to help us achieve this goal together. Everything you need is inside this box. Don’t open it now, but wait until the early morning when no guards are nearby. When the time has arrived, it will be abundantly clear.”
 
   Todd reached his right hand toward the box, which was stained a dark brown but was otherwise plain. Cliff quickly pulled it back from him as if he were just dangling a carrot in front of his face.
 
   “We are short on time. Before you take the box, I would like to know I have your complete trust. You must know that I have your back and I need to know that you have mine as well. If there can be no honor among thieves, then our plan will fail.”
