"Everybody Down!" A masked man shouts "This is a robbery"
It's 9:30am and CIBC is filled with people, yourself included.
"I said everybody down!" The masked man hops up onto the teller booth and pulls out a gun.
[[everybody gets down except for you]]
[[everybody gets down including you]]"Hey buddy, are you dumb or something?"
"No," you respond "I just don't like bullies."
"Haha, man you're a walking clichè." He hops down and walks over to you. "You like pop culture, eh?" He puts his gun to your forehead "Do you like The Walking Dead?" He pulls the hammer back.
"Nah, never got into it" you reply
"What about the sitting dead?" The masked man turns and shoots one of the other bank customer.
"Holy shit! Man! what the hell?" You scream
Everyone in the bank starts to scream and panic.You slowly back away from the gun man and [[sit down]]You [[sit down]] amongst the rest of the groupYou sit down on the ground and let the robbers do their thing.
"We should rush them." One of the customers says "they're in the vault, we could take them."
Another customers says "Don't be dumb, they have guns. I don't want to die."
"He's right," you chime in "I don't want to die. We all saw him killed that guy. But we do need to do something."
"You can either [[sit here]] or [[come with me]]." The lady gets up and goes into the vaultThe lady gets up and goes into the vault. Only a few other people go with her including a huge, muscley guy.
"What is she doing? She's going to get killed." One of patrons says. "I don't know." Another replies
You look around and try to find a way out. You don't see anything immediately.
"Excuse me, sir?" Two young kids, they must be 4 and 5, come up to you "Our dad had to go back to the car and he's outside right now. Can we sit with you? Please?" You smile gently and nod your head. The kids sit on either side of you and the youngest one snuggles into you.
You look around at the other customers and think to yourself that you need to get them out of here. You wrap your arms around the kids when you feel them shaking.
"Hey, what about that," a small boy points at a cordless phone that's fallen into a recycling bin.
You let go of the kids and say "I'm just going to crawl over there and grab the phone, okay?" They nod. As you crawl over you hear [[gun shots]]. Everyone screams!The lady gets up and goes into the vault, you get up and go with her. A few other people go with you
"What are we going to do once we get in there?" You ask
She gives you an annoyed look "I don't know, do I have to think of everything?"
"Yeah, you do." the big guy mutters "You came up with this plan."
You quickly stop "guys, they're right there. What are we doing?"
The lady pushes you out into the robber's view
One of the robbers spins around in a panic and [[shoots you in the chest]]People start to scramble together, holding one another.
The lead robber comes back from the vault dragging the woman by her hair.
"Now!" He shouts, throwing her into the crowd "who thought that was a good idea? You've got two dead people, and one person beaten to hell. Come on people, I don't want to kill you all." He turns to leave, "you know what? Let's do this." The leader [[throws you a gun]], "time to earn your share rookie."You catch the gun, feeling its weight in your hand you think *this is only the second time I've held a gun.*
A look of shock spreads across the group. The kids that were sitting with you start to cry.
You stand up and walk over to the bank counter. You put the gun down and put your hands up "I don't want to hurt anyone and I'm not going to," you motion to the gun "I'm going to leave this here, I'm just asking that you sit here and don't provoke them. Please."
You [[walk away]] from the group and sit by yourself.
You [[hear]] stirring from the groupYou go and sit in an open office and put your head in your hands. You take a deep breath and sit up.
You can't go along with this plan, these people are innocent. You need to get them out. You hear a [[knock on the door]] and you look up."This is ridiculous, we can't just sit here until they come back to kill us."
"What about this guy? He left his gun right there. We could take and shoot our way out of here."
"That's dumb, they have more guns than us and we'd die."
Hearing this, you realize it's up to you to save these people
You go and sit in an open office and put your head in your hands. You take a deep breath and sit up.
You can't go along with this plan, these people are innocent. You need to get them out. You hear a [[knock on the door]] and you look upIt's the two kids. "Mister, please don't hurt us. We just want to see our dad again."
You get out of the chair and kneel down in front of them "I'm not going to hurt you or anyone out there, okay?" They silently nod their heads.
"Can I tell you a secret?" They both whisper yes. "I'm trying to think of a way to get everyone out." Their faces light up "You're not a bad guy!" They clap their tiny hands together in joy "can we help?"
You laugh and say "sure, you have to keep this plan a secret, cool?" "Yep!" They reply.
Now [[run along]] and sit back down with the rest of the groupThe kids run back to the group and you start to [[think]]*Now how do I get these people out of here* you ponder.
You stand up and look out the window; you see the group huddled around the woman, who is unconscious.
You shake your head and turn away but [[something catches your eye]]You quickly turn back and see some fresh Timbits, they must have just been bought.
Quickly a plan begins to take form in your head.
You [[pick up the timbits]] and walk over the robber posted inbetween the door of the bank."Hey, Charlie," He looks up "Yo."
You hold up the Timbits "You hungry?"; Charlie nods eagerly.
As you get closer to him you discretely pick up the gun. You get to the doors and hand him the box. As he's opening the box you [[clobber him over the head with the gun]]Charlie falls to the ground with a ''thud''. You quickly pull his body from the entry way and tie him up.
You go back over to the group and whisper "guys, we need to go right now." You stand up
The two little kids quickly jump up and grab your hands. You start to walk towards the door. People start to get up and follow you out.
As you open the doors, police officers rush up to you, guns drawn.
"Whoa, guys! They're inside. We're not the bad guys." You look around to see if anyone is going to tell the police that you were originally one of the robbers. No one says anything.
The police let you through and a man [[comes running up]]"Sasha! Tony! Guys, are you okay?" The man shouts, grabbing the kids
"Daddy!" They both cheer "We're okay, this guy saved us."
"Mister, thank you so much for getting my kids out of there." Shaking your hand
You put your hand on his shoulder "Sir, please. I'm glad your kids are safe. They're amazing kids and I think they deserve some ice cream."
The kids hear the words ice cream and the start jumping up and down.
You laugh, you wave good bye to the family and you [[walk away from the bank]]''THE END''"You idiot!" The leader shouts "What'd you do that for? He was a part of the team."
"Sorry boss, I got scared and panicked. I didn't mean too."
"Go see if there's anyone else."
The robber comes around the corner and finds the bossy lady and the other people sitting there in shock.
"Come on, lets go." he [[waves his gun]] towards the vault. Everyone gets up and moves towards the vaultOnce in the vault, you see the leader pauses his counting and turns to the group "Now, who threw my friend here to the wolves?"
No one moves
"I'll give you one last chance." He switches the safety off his gun
"Fine," The bossy lady cries "It was him." She points to the big guy.
One of the other people jumps to his defense "No, it was you. You pushed him."
The leader sighs and shoots the big guy, right between the eyes. Then he looks right at the lady "no you're gonna have to live with the fact that you killed this poor man."
The lady looks mortified, she starts to bawl her eyes out
"Oh quit your whining, you were so tough two minutes ago." He smashes the pistol across the side of her side, knocking her to the ground, unconscious.
Slowly, your eyes close and everything [[fades to black]]You have [[died]]''THE END''
