Honor Among Thieves – Part Thirty-Two

Part XXXII 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 XXXII:

 
Cliff was still very careful not to confirm or deny that he was the author of the two messages that Todd had received in the last couple days. He had one more test he hoped that he would pass momentarily, then they would be able to speak freely. They walked in sync and placed their trays on the table in front of them as if they were operating on a mutual wavelength of motion. Todd sat down in his normal slouched position, while Cliff paid particular attention to his posture as he laid his paper napkin neatly on his thighs.
 
“I take it you enjoyed yourself the other night?” Cliff began, winking surreptitiously at him while he spoke. “As I said, that can be a regular thing for you.”
 
“Yes,” Todd cringed on the inside as he quickly contrived a remark, “I feel maybe we have jumped into everything a bit too quickly. I am not sure I am ready to move forward without some explanation.”
 
“Shhh,” Cliff retorted, in a whisper. “Not in here! You can never be sure who is eavesdropping. Meet in the yard when the doors to the yard open.”
 
After saying this, Cliff sprung up and dashed away. He made his way into the middle of the cafeteria and vanished completely from Todd’s line of sight. Cliff was in desperate straits with how this all continued to unfold in front of him. He attempted to eat his food, but his stomach was curled up in knots and he had lost his appetite.
