Under moonlight, The Cranes gathered. The "impenetrable" Le Marquis Bank in sight. Our insider, "Morris", propped the emergency exit, now entrance. Sal, always the charmer, even got the guard's phone number. VOLTaire killed the power as Bella slithered to the vault, locked by a biometric that will cost the CEO their job. Bella held her breath and placed her amino synthesized glove. The vault gave up a final gasp. Ours. Finally. Shimmering like a diamond of untold worth. They packed swiftly, leaving only a rainbow origami crane behind. The world would never be the same. Together, The Cranes lift all.
