He ran down the dark and creepy alley beneath the New York buildings. His eyes searched the walls and ground, from place to place like a bullet. He kept his pace at the same rate. He jumped; he found what he was searching for. His slender quick hand touched the rough brick wall and removed a seemly heavy redish brown brick. He had no trouble lifting and holding the brick, a normal person could hurt themselves trying to lift the object. He was unmistakably stronger than most. Then he swiftly placed the brick horizontally along the side of the brick wall.  He reached deeper into the mysterious small hole were the brick once sat. He pulled out a small roll of paper like a scroll but smaller. He unrolled it revealing a shapes and figures unknown to the world. It didn’t take but a second for him to read and register what was on the scroll he had just acquired.

He then threw it in frustration, afterward turning one-eighty degrees to the opposing wall. The roll tumbled away, crashing into the nearby brick wall. It bounced back and then rolled back to stop at his feet. He roughly placed his hand to his forehead as one could infer he was now in deep stress. He placed the other hand upon his hip. He did nothing more than stand there and listen into the sound of the New York traffic. Finally, after a minute that felt like an hour, he removed his hands. His face now visable, was covered with irritation and discouragement.

Now not as much as in a hurry, he kept a straight face and heads to the bright crack between the buildings. He quickly walked to the exit and pulled himself into the crowded New York streets. He blends in with the New Yorkers more than you would expect. Many New Yorkers were calm and indifferent, while he was always in a hurry.  He then got lost into the wave of the New York  people as he makes his way across the brightened morning street.
