Bank robber to wait his turn

Bank robber to wait his turn

Samuel leant against the counter, kept his .44 flat on the counter-​top and watched the bank clerk. She was telling him how it was. She had a queue of drive-​through cus­tomers that needed serv­ing first. ”I need you to wait?” she said, read­ing the note Samuel had scrib­bled down telling her that he had a hand­gun. Samuel watch­ing her rotate towards the drive-​through hatch, tak­ing her time. Tak­ing the note with her. Wait­ing. Twenty sec­onds and count­ing. Samuel think­ing it through. Another ten and he’d walk. Now the bank man­ager was ask­ing him if he needed help.
