L.O.S. Time: 12:12pm

Day: Saturday

Time of day: 12:12pm

“My friend, John caruso said he heard  that there was a big money drop here so he sent us to pick it up.” The guy with the gun said.

I started to move towards the other guy with the cutlass. My hands in the air to show i wasn’t a threat.

“Hey i think you got the wrong house, there is no…”

He swung at me with the cutlass, slighty cutting a horizontal line on my right cheek.

“No movement” he added, “on the ground now.” “Caruso?”

He said, looking at the one with the gun. I did as was instructed, dropping to lie on my stomach. “What? I like the name. It makes the boss sound like a really scary character.”

My head was face down.

“Guys really. What to you want?”

I heard the guy who cut me move closer.

“Man, you are not as scared as we want you to be. Did i not cut you well?”

I tried to look in his direction. “Believe me man. I am seconds away from peeing myself. I just want to know what you are talking about.”

Carol giggled.

“Shut up.”

He then turned to me.

“We got word that you brought home a huge sum from the bank due to maintainace issues at the office.”

“I’m still as confused as ever, i don’t even know how that works.”

I could feel him getting even more impatient.

“Dude, this gun is real. The cutlass is real. Arhm… Look Mr, we know everything that goes on in the bank.”

“Can i sit up please, i think i can straighten things out.”

He approved my request by motioning his weapon. I got up and sat on the ground.

“I believe you’ve got the right house and the right intel, just not right man. See my girl.. ,”

I pointed to Ginny who was sitting quietly on the couch looking sorry.

“and i are babysitting for her sister. These are her nephew and niece,”

I pointed to sam and carol who were also sitting at the other side of the room.

“Their dad is the banker and i’m sure their parent would not trust hiding anything in the house because these kids get into places alot. So the money is probably not even in the house.

Of course they didn’t believe me about the money.

“What do you do?”

“I’m a researcher.”

They went on to search the house when they couldn’t find the money, they settled for taking anything they could carry Including my harddrive.

Damn it, my harddrive.

So I did that thing a lot of people do when you ignore your wristwatch and check your phone to know the time. It was 1:30pm and i was standing in front of a counter at the police station, giving a statement. I kept on trying stress how important it was that they found my harddrive. It was all my work.cop-2026739_1280

My ring tone went off. James was back again.

The call:

James: what’s up bro?

Hermes: I just got robbed. We’ll talk later

James: Wao! hey! Hang on. I’m sorry about that. Hope you arent hurt.

Hermes: No, just my pride and a little cut on my face. But the most painful part is they made away with my laptop and hard drive.

James: so sorry man.

Hermes:Anyway i sent you an email.

James: What did you do?

Hermes: i processed the data and found a once in five years trend of abnormal rainfall events that may be contributing to the flood over there.

James: what about my thing about the excessive cementing?

Hermes: yeah i correlated that trend to the rate water goes down underground in the area. That helped me really arrive at the five year, serious flooding over there. Look through the files. There are charts and stuff.

James: i will.

Hermes:yeah.

James: sorry about your things

Hermes: yeah.

Hang up.
