The Exchange


It was late night. A sharp whistle was heard. It was followed by a cough, few yards away. A tall frame of a silhouette moved in the dark. The tall frame said, “When the clock strikes ten.” Another voice said, “Its time to get the job done.” A short frame came out of the darkness. The Tall frame, “You got the code correct. I couldn’t believe they accepted you in the gang.” The Short one, “It’s a privilege working with you people. Given a chance I’ll prove my loyalty to the gang.”You know what they will do to you, if the plan goes wrong?  Consider yourself dead if this blows out.” “I'm totally aware of thatreplied the short one.

My package…Is it ready?” “Eh…No… I tried…” “What!!! Don’t screw with me. I don’t need any lame excuses. I pay you, you get me what I want. It’s as simple as that.
I couldn’t arrange for it in such a short notice. You will have them tomorrow morning
I better have that tomorrow or else” “I swear you will get them tomorrow.” “One more thing, no one else but the gang should know about this” “No one will know” The tall one grabbed the short one’s shoulder and pressed it hard, “If its all spoiled, I’ll take care of you myself.”

Tcchhh… Lights every where… Both are blinded by the sudden flood of light in the darkness. They cover their eyes with their hands.

“Who’s there? Bubbloo, Dev what are you doing here?”
Gr…Grandpa we were…
Dev interrupted, “Grandpa we heard noises back here. That’s why we came here to check if it’s alright
Grandpa, “Its late, you kids should be in bed. Now go to your room…

Tomorrow was Grandpa’s birthday. All the grand children were planning to throw a surprise party. If you are wondering what the package was…
