14. Second Robbery

I let out a small shriek when I saw the spider in the vent.  Yep, despite all that’s happened, I still don’t like them.  Actually, it’s more like, in light of all that’s happened.

Anyway, I carefully crawled around it and through the small chamber to the roof of the school.  The building was tall, and it overlooked much of the city.  I left my backpack on the roof and inhaled deeply, just before taking a running leap off of the edge and swinging through the air towards the bank and the sound of police sirens.

When I got to the bank, I landed on the roof, out of view of the people down on the street.  I went in through the rooftop vent cover and found myself in another restroom.  Out in the lobby, I could hear the voices of the robbers, but not enough to make out what they were saying.  I figured that meant that they were far enough away that I could leave the restroom unnoticed.

I opened the door and poked my masked head outside.  There they were, four of them--down the hallway, loading bags up with money inside the vault.  I crawled up the wall to the high ceiling so I could get closer without being seen.  When I was right above them, my heart started racing.  I was slightly nervous.  With the last robbery, I didn’t really engage in hand-to-hand combat.  However, I knew what I had to do--and I wasn’t turning back, now.

I let go of the ceiling--and my last moment of remaining unnoticed--and flipped my body around, landing right on top of one of the goons.  When the others saw me, I heard one of them swear.  I turned around and punched him in the mouth.

“I don’t appreciate that kind of language,” I said, feeling my confidence rising.

“Who invited the spider?”  There it was again.  I recognized the voice, but I still couldn’t place it.

Trying to keep my wits about me I said, “I didn’t exactly get an invite.”  One of the guys rushed me from behind.  I felt the warning running down my spine and did a back-flip and he ran under me.  “I heard there was a party going on…”  I webbed two of them to the wall.  “…and I just couldn’t resist.”  The third guy tried to hit me in the head from behind.  I ducked, turned, and knocked him over with a high kick to the face.

After tying him up in webs, I looked around for the last robber--the owner of the voice.  He was gone.  I let him get away.  Again.

I turned to the others.  “Oh!  And you can tell the police that I’m not a guy.”  I smiled--not that they could see it anyway.  “You fellas just got beat by a girl.”  They just stared at me in unbelief.  The police darted into the building, holding their guns out in front of them, but I was already on my way through the ceiling vent, heading back to the roof.
