The Bank-Clerk's dystopian day

by Leonie | Score: 2550

Miss Elliot was quietly transferring some money for a granny when She heard a scream arise from Mr. Jonson's desk. She peered over the turned heads of the other clerks and saw to burly men wearing soot-coloured ski caps, guns drawn.
She fainted promptly.
By the time she woke up, all was still. She couldn't see nor hear another soul. All around her was the remmenants of a panicked crowd. Dropped purses, streaks of blood on the floor, a broken radio.  
Suddenly, a beeping sound reached Miss Elliot's ears, and remembering the hundreds of  spy movies she had seen in her lifetime, she knew she had to get out of there.
The clerk shot up, meaning to sprint but instead stumbling to the front door. The beeping got louder. The door was locked. Down the street, a whistling roofer heard a breaking of glass, saw a running figure, and a minute later saw an explosion.
