Just another robbery


Its 12 o'clock on a Friday morning, 5 of us sat around a table the local bar talking about a recent job they done, doing what they do best. Jay: we burst in through the front doors Ross points the gun at the lady behind the desk and says get on the fuckin floor! Straight after he realises she needs to open the till so he's like get the fuck up what ya doing on the floor? (the table ripples with a quick chuckle) how many robberies we pulled together? And the tit still runs in there and says the first fucking thing that comes into his head, even though we spend several hours going over the god dam plan. Anyway while Ross is playing simon says with the till lady I grab one of the workers slam him against the security door and tell him to open it, this kid is like fresh out of school stacking shelves so he can get drunk of a bottle of strong-bow on the weekend, the scabby little kid opens the door and there is one more worker shitting them self on the over side of the room, just sat there like a melon. So I grab the fuck and tell him to open the safe but he hesitates, I know time is passing now so I hit him with the butt of the gun, his fucking noes pops, big D interrupts: bet that made him open the safe. Jay continues : yeah, so the safe opens up and there is ten grand I was only expecting five but hell I didn’t stop to complain I shove the lot in the bag and call Ross and were out of there before that scabby fuck face could blow his noes (joins in with the laughter satisfied with his joke) Ross: yeah we went for something small as im fresh out of pen. Big D: yeah play it safe, im sorry to say I still haven’t heard nothing on that snitch im shore where have the rat soon (the table goes quiet for a second) so tell me jack were where you while this was going down. jack: oh I had some loose ends that needed tying up plus It wasn't a big job so I knew these big boys could handle it. (patting Ross on the back) big D: good to hear it, so err I will be wanting my cut of that then (big D knows everything what goes down on his side of town he's well respected no jobs get the go ahead with out his say. Because its on his side of town he takes a share of the prize ten percent in this case as its not a particularly big job) jay : I was waiting for you to say that (saying so as he passes a roll of money across the table) so big D you no of any more business opportunities popping up any time soon (said looking at big D as a waitress brings across several cups of coffee) Liam: in fact we do don't we big D although we will give it a couple days to let any heat cool down from you two (liam is big D's right hand man he doesn't make decisions without consulting him, but D's word is the final one, they come together like salt and pepper, never far apart) liam: we've been casing the bank on the over side of town and they do the same scheduled pick ups fortnightly I have to make shore of a couple more details big D will fill you in when we no them. Ross: sounds sweet. Jay : yeah easy stuff like clockwork these banks. Liam: as we said we're be in touch (said as they stand up and exit the café)


after a quick banter Ross and jay head back to jays as Ross hasn't got no where to stay because he's just came out of prison. Ross is a hard bastard, always has been he can take a punch and can half give one back, after doing a two year stretch because some unknown rat supplied evidence of his involvement in a robbery on a jewellery store, he has came out and has sworn that he is not going back. Jay may not be the toughest nut on the block but he is smart and level headed when under pressure, he is also a convincing nutter when he has a gun in his hand. These two have been partners in crime ever since they robbed there first kid at school for his dinner money. Ruthless bastards. They met jack through big D he's smart, sharp thinking and ask him to do something and hear do it. Fits in nicely with the pair. They have been pulling jobs of together for several years now always looking for a new safe to crack house to rob or car to steal. Together this trio is one of the most feared group of thief’s through out London.


Ross: that sofa's got my name on it (he says as he falls down on to it) Jay: cheeky bastard, yeah its yours for as long as you need some where to stay (laughing) Ross come here I want to show you something (Jay leads them into the bedroom) since before you went away I started this (knelling on the floor and revealing a secret stash from under the floor boards) Ross: you sleigh bastard what do you plan to do with all that Jay: I nearly have enough to buy a nice place im thinking Spain or somewhere nice where I cant get involved in any of this shit no more Ross: fuck me mate your serious I thought you were in this till the end, I respect you, you no that but im not shore how big D and liam are going to feel about this Jay: fuck him we have worked our ass' of for them I wont out and that's final. Ross stands there with a plain face as he is not shore to be happy for his friend or not, after Jay puts the money away they walk into the living room where they receive a phone call. Jack: you will never guess what I just seen. Its big D walking down the street with that detective, what's his name detective wilts or something. Jay: no fucking way alright im going to ask him what he is playing at I’ll speak to ya tomorrow jack: alright mate.


As jay flicks through his contacts his mind is drifting to what big D could have been doing there is no explanation that he can think of he decides to ring him. Big D: hello what do you want. Jay: where was you earlier then because I’ve heard you been with the Feds (he says loudly making his point known) big D: (hesitates) what do you think I was doing he approached me asking about your little stunt you pulled and wondered if I knew anything about it, you trying to say something boy (irate at what jay was accusing him of) jay: oh right sorry about that big D I had to make shore its just with Ross fresh out of prison its a bit hard to no who to trust I’ll see ya tomorrow. Big D hangs up. Fuck Jay shouts realizing what had just happened. You should never accuse someone unless your a hundred percent sure that your right because you can lose a lot of respect from getting it wrong and respect is important it takes a life to build respect and only a couple seconds to lose it.


5am the next morning jay is laying in bed sprawled across the sheets when he is woken by the shadow of something Jay: ahhhhh what the fuck you doing, how did you get in!. big D: im a thief jay or did you forget that (chuckles at his own joke) Ross liam and jack are standing in the door way laughing you should have seen your face jay, it was a picture says Ross (grasping his stomach as he laughs) liam: now get dressed we got some stuff we need to fill you in on. Ten minutes later jay walks into the dinning room to find the three of them smiling, fuck off jay says bluntly. As they sit around the table big D begins going over the plan big D: right the money from the past two weeks is due to be collected in (glances at his watch) two hours forty minutes. Instead of trying to blow your way in to a safe you wait until there offloading the money from the bank to go to the vault now there is one specific time you need to do this as the back door opens the van will already be in place to receive the money Jay interrupts: so we take over the van and back it up against the bank as normal and get the money when they open the doors? Big D: yes that's right you’ll be wearing these all in ones with balaclavas on we have the stolen car outside so once you drive the van out of there switch to the get away car and drive to the safe house, swap cars again there will be 6 litres of petrol in the over car put your overalls and masks in the stolen car and torch the lot for DNA.



An hour passes jay jack and Ross have tooled them self up and our driving into position, no matter how many robberies you pull you always get that nervous feeling in the bottom of your stomach and if they say they don't there lying. Sat in the car moments away of what could be one big pay day or one big sentence overalls are already on, balaclavas with the gun on your lap waiting.. The longest wait you will do is waiting for that moment to start the job the surge of adrenaline pumped with fear you don't get a bigger high than this. The van pulls round the corner Jay: hear we go lads look lively (jays says as those first drops of adrenaline begin to flow) Ross and Jacks eyes wide open pupils dilated, there ready. They place the balaclavas over there head the outfit is complete they wait as the van starts backing up against the bank there hands on the door handle waiting for the signal to go. The van driver opens his door but before he has a chance to put his foot down three mask men bust out of a car and our pointing guns in his face. Jay: turn around put your fucking hands behind your back! come on! (jay screams whilst pointing his gun at him) jack ties the drivers hands and feet whilst Ross opens the back of the van the two men are forced into the back of the van. Jay gives the orders to get in the van Ross and Jack sit in the back of the van whilst jay backs it up into position. Jay a lines the van with the back doors of the bank. A moment to compose. There breathing returns to a steady pass. Refocus. Jay beeps the horn to indicate to the bank that the van is out side. Two unsuspecting workers open the back doors of van to find two people in masks holding guns to their faces Ross: hello darling now if you was to be so kind and pass me the fucking money (he yells) jack jumps out the van and orders them to the floor. Ross grabs the four security case's with the money in and flings them in the back of the van. Ross: no one fucking move! Jack and Ross toss the two workers out the back of the van. One quick shout from Ross and Jay slams his foot down causing the wheels to squeal as they accelerate away from the bank. As they approach the gate sirens appear from the left and right. Panic. Jay: what the fuck where did these come from! Ross: get us out of here. Ross kicks open the back door of the van and opens fire at the police cars bullets pierce there metal bodies. Jay swerves round the corner narrowly missing an oncoming car which slams straight into the front of a pursuing cop car. Jack: how the fuck did this happen! Jay: I don’t know OK where lose these cops and stick to the plan. As jay says this a car at a cross junction pulls out in front of him, jays instinct is to swerve causing the van to roll on its side the trio are tossed around as the van slides along the road sparks burn and glass shatters from the impact. The totalled van lays flat on its side in the middle of the road, Jay opens his eyes he notices a cop car approaching, sirens still wailing over the ringing sounds in his ears Jay: Ross! Jack! Get up come on! Jay climbs into the back of the van blood running down his face from a cut above his eye scratches join it, he wakes Ross with his bloody hands from the shattered glass Ross regains consciousness. Jack is still knocked out. They no that the get away car is only round the next bend. Ross lifts jack up and puts him over his shoulder. Ross: im not going back to prison Ross mutters.As Jay reaches for his gun the speeding cop car comes to a halt the cop shouts for them to come out with there hands up, jay replies OK OK as he peers round the upturned van and shoots at the cop who is quick to duck behind cover. The few people in the street run scared from the masked gunmen, Jay: come on lets move! They begin to travel down the road on foot Ross carrying jack on his shoulder barely able to carry himself on his own two feet. As they move from the cover of the van jay repeats his fire at the cop this time the bullet travels through the cops shoulder causing him to fall to the floor in pain. They make a dash for the last part of the street,as they get into the get away car around the corner they begin to take off there torn balaclavas and all in ones. Suddenly the sound of sirens start to rapidly approach with little ammo and now no masks on the odds of them making it are becoming slimmer and slimmer they sink into there seat. The cop car skids round the turning and begins to slow. The sirens are now quiet. Jay sighs. The sirens begin howling again as the police car drives past, a sense of relief comes over them. Jay: try and wake jack will ya im getting us out of here. Jay starts the car and begins to drive normally in the direction they came driving past the van which is now surrounded by people. His heartbeat slows they are out of trouble... for now.


Five minutes later and they arrive at the safe house where jack comes round. The safe house is a local warehouse which is owned by big D he owns many around the city which he uses for all sorts of things from hide outs to storage facilities. What the fuck was that how did the police get there so fast we where no longer than 5 minutes including taking the van. Jay shouts punching the desk at the side of the warehouse. I don’t no something weren’t right though there is no way 3 cop cars where just passing by as we finished the job replies Ross. A minute passes with nothing but thought jack brakes the silence, its big D remember I saw him with the detective he must have set us up blurts jack shocked by his own words. Ross: why would he do that? Jay: quietly mutters, your right that’s why big D has never been to prison he runs this part of town and by doing so he gives up people to the police. Ross busts with anger swearing throwing punches at nothing but air, calm down shouts jay. So we get him down to the safe house confront him about it and if where right we kill him.


Jack and Ross nod in agreement. There is no way im letting him get away with putting me in prison. pants Ross. Jay phones big D to let him no there at the safe house whilst they wait for him to come down they get into a change of clothes and wash there cuts. 20 minutes pass. Ross and jack are sat on the desk when big D and liam walk in through the rusty door everyone arises from there seated position to standing. What the fuck happened back there screams jay. I don’t no says big D but from what I saw I weren’t expecting to see you guys get out of there said with general concern. I bet you weren’t shouts Ross. Jack pulls out his gun in rage and points it at big D from across the room. Simultaneously liam pulls out his gun and points it at jack Ross reacts and points his gun at liam. Jay: looks like we got our self a bit of a predicament, so tell us D did you set us up!! big D and liam step back in fear as the situation for them is not good. big D: you boys have been nothing but loyal to me and this is the way you repay me accusing me of being a rat and holding a gun to me he shouts as he begins to sweat. Well how comes the cops where all over us before we could scratch are fucking asses. Replies jack. I don’t no maybe, big D pauses as though a sudden realization of events, this is your doing liam you said you were paying them to keep them off our backs and ever since people have started doing time. Jay aims his gun at liam who takes his gun from aiming at Ross and points it at jay. don’t try blaming this on me D he pleads. D begins walking over towards jack. don’t fucking move jack shouts don’t fucking tell me what to do D grunts. Several shots fly off. People hit the floor the echo of ricocheting bullets travels through out the warehouse


Ross groan’s as he roles over onto his front he climbs to his feet a flesh wound on his left shoulder leaving a painful burning on his skin. liam and big D lay in a pool of blood jack stands up are you OK he asks yeah yeah im fine he quietly replies jack turns and sees that jay still hasn't got up they rush to his side to find he had a bullet wound on the right side of his chest. Jay lays there motionless while Ross and jack shake him to try and bring him round the silence is enough for them to realise that he has past. Jack: what do we do he asks. Ross: swallows hard and says we got to get out of hear but that's it, im leaving town taking the money I have and moving some where nice he says as a tear runs down his face that's what jay would have wanted.
