The Music Man Job (pt.1-5)"That was the worst shooting range practice I have ever seen," Zachary Gode laughed, shaking his head as he drove he and his friend Hale back to Hale's home.The Music Man Job (pt.1-5) in Profiles More Like This
"I know, you were pretty bad," Hale replied from the passenger seat, crossing his arms, a wide grin spread across his face.
"Me?" Zach sounded offended. "I made every shot, but you!" He laughed a little harder. "Dude, when you first fired and fell back cause the kickback-"
"Hey, I didn't know it was going to be so strong," the anthro wolf defended himself.
"I just wish Wolf could have seen you," Zach said, pulling to a stop in front of Hale's home. "When I told her we were going, she was bummed she couldn't be there to watch."
Hale watched for Zach to park the car before he opened the door and got out. "She wanted to see me make a fool of myself?"
"You know it," Zach grinned, getting out of the car.
"You're a jerk, man." Hale chuckled lightly. He looked over at Zach, but before he could say anything more, his phone rang. He paused
Please Don't Leave Me "It's after midnight," Eddy said casually to Bobby who lay beside him on the bed while Eddy sat up on his laptop.Please Don't Leave Me in Profiles More Like This
"Mhm, I'm glad you can read a clock, Eddy," Bobby said with a grin, his arms folded comfortably behind his head.
"Do you know what today is?"
"Tuesday?" the thief asked after a hum. "Do we have something to do today? I thought we weren't heading out until Friday?"
Since they'd finished their job in their current town, it wouldn't be long before they cleared out of their hotel room and hopped a plane to their next destination.
"No, it's not that!" Eddy laughed, turning to Bobby who was moving to prop himself up on his elbows, looking at Eddy with his head tilted. "You really don't know?"
"Like you said, it's after midnight. I'm tired, my brain doesn't work as well when I'm tired." Bobby said, trying to keep a straight face as he gave Eddy his horribly lame excuse.

Zach pulled himself out of bed early the next morning. He got dressed, putting on a hoodie so that he could hide his gun under the waistband of his jeans and still not be noticed. He took his earpiece and slipped it into his ear, turning it on. He was not expecting to hear Hale's voice ring in through it.
"Hale?" Zach paused slightly. "What on earth are you doing up this early?" he glanced over at the clock. "It's like 6 A.M."
"I can't sleep." Hale sighed. "I've been sitting outside for hours."
"This job is making me nervous."
"Do you get nervous on all your jobs? Because you said that same thing back in London." Zach laughed lightly, grabbing his car keys off the dresser.
"Only the big ones." Hale replied, yawning loudly.
Zach smiled a little. "You should get some sleep, man. I'm sure even Wolf is passed out on her laptop in there."
He could hear Hale hum a little and shift around in the spot he was sitting. "What are you doing?"

"Ya know, you're not supposed to let people hit you," It was the first thing Rufio Rubles ever said to him. They were still young boys, standing in the schoolyard during recess. Rufio had just seen him fall flat on his butt when that big kid in the grade above had shoved him off to the side.
"Yeah, I know," Jasper had replied. "I just didn't feel like fightin' today."
"Well," Rufio held out his hand, offering to help Jasper up. "Next time ya feel like fightin', you should call me. I like to throw punches sometimes."
Jasper smiled and took the brown-haired boy's hand, getting back to his feet. "My name's Jasper Rhodes."
"I'm Rufio!" the boy grinned at him. "Rufio Rubles!"
"You're in my class, ain't ya?" Rufio nodded his head quickly, a big goofy grin stuck on his face.
"Ya know, we should be friends." Rufio had decided with a simple nod of his head.
