Eddie: Not So Smug

You know that feeling you get when it turns out you were right after all and everyone else was wrong but being in the right doesn't make you feel better because of the situation it put you in? It's when being smug comes and bites you in the backside.

Well that's exactly how I feel.

* * * * *

We had been prepared for our little raid on the bank. We thought we would get away with it. Well, Kaya did. I was a little bit more sceptical so I sent her outside - I wasn't planning on putting her in any risk.

"Come on Eddie." she insisted in her usual manner. "I'll be fine."

"No. I'll be happier with you far away from here." I replied, filling my voice with strength.

"It'll help having me there. Seem more plausible." she grabbed my arm and stared straight into my eyes but I simply shook my head.

"No." I whispered as I kissed her on the head and did what we had come there to do.

The only problem was that the bank caught on more or less straight away and had activated the alarm and before I had the chance to make my get-away, they had caught me. The police held me down and cuffed me before throwing me in the back of a van. I sighed as they shut the doors, catching a glimpse of Kaya in the distance.

She'd get me out. I hope.

The End
