“Clink! Where are we with this?” I hiss quietly, knowing my communicator will pick it up.
“Sorry Boss! This hack is taking a minute,”
“You know I’m the one stuck between two walls, right? We don’t have a minute!” I grump, readying the wall cutters.
“Yup? The fuck? Clink!”
“I swear Clink, if…”
“Got it! Go, now!”
“Fuck!” I swear, but I’m already cutting a person sized hole in the wall.
No alarms sound as I step through, and I wipe the sweat from my brow.
“Pattern, Clink! Your right, my left, like we discussed!” I demand.
My sweat soaks me as Clink walks me through the steps to get over the sensor plated flooring.
“No sweat.” I say as I make it across, sans alarm, snorting at my pun.”
“The laser wall is… 3 inches to your left.”
My heart seizes as a blare deafens me. The alarm!
“It might have been 2.5 inches,” Clink gulps.
I turn to run, too late. A hot pinch knocks the breath out of me as a bullet burst from my chest.
Jerking awake, the simulator hums as it winds down. “Clink, run it again! 103rd times a charm!”
