Chapter 1

“Oh shhhh just jump” Jace said as he pushed Bethany out of the window of a 27th floor in a New York city skyscraper. Jace put his right foot on the windowsill and looked around in the apartment they had broken into, there wasn’t much and to be quite honest it looked like a lonely drunk lived there, a table with peeling white paint and one of the legs busted so it was never perfectly flat, a old blue lazy boy that looked like someone who was stabbed had spent the night in it and books everywhere, littered throughout the apartment, covering the walls at different heights, jace guessed that they were organized in the drunks head but he couldn’t figure out the system for himself. As he hung to the window with Beth screaming at him to hurry up before the cops kicked the door in he felt sympathy for the man or woman who lived here, they had no pictures if any loved ones and they seemed to live a lonely life. Just a human with their books and about a thousand empty bottles scattered throughout the living room, some smashed others still had liquid in them. Jace tried to imagine the human who lived there, what kind of face they would have, would it have wrinkles making them look hardened or would they simply look depressed, like one of the dogs in the VCA commercials for animal abuse. All of his thinking occured in a matter of seconds, Jace always had an act for think fast, what snapped him out of his thinking was the sound of a cop stating that they were “gonna bust down this ****** door if you don’t open up this instant and come quietly to the the station.” Just from hearing the officers voice Jace could tell that he was about 40, overweight and had been paying a prostitute visits which his wife found out about and forced him out of the house, away from there 14 and 11 year old children. Jace had a way with figuring things out. In another life he would have made one **** of a detective if it weren’t for the way Jace chose to live. He was what he liked to call a land pirate, someone who didn’t care about what the people he stole from lost just as long as he could live luxuriously and could have a little fun now and again. As the officers slammed the door open jace, always loving to make an exquisite exit said ” well mates I guess u got me..” “get down or we will shoot you on site” “shhhhhh i’m not finished yet. Uhmmm… you might have found me but you can’t catch what you can’t out think boys” waving them goodbye Jace jumped from the window into the rope landing he had made in about 5 minutes prior to their casino ‘win’. Beth was already standing on the 20th floor which was where the overgrown hammock as Beth had called it was tied to. The accurately imagined cop leaned out the window thinking that he would now have to call the forensic scientists and scrape what’s left of Bonnie and Clyde off of the sidewalk and hope they did not hit anybody on their way down. “you son on a *****” the officer stated as looking down at the swinging rope death trap seven floors below. Looking up Jace simply smiled as he awkwardly crawled his way to Beth, who had stashed the majority of the cash in her bra and her lace thigh wallet she had bought off of ebay not a week ago. Standing firmly on the floor of the next building he grabbed and kissed Beth “man I love you.”
