The Other Half

They say that getting there is half the fun, but they—whomever they are—fail to mention that it’s the easy part. Getting in, that was a cinch; it’s going to be getting the girl and getting out that’s the challenge.

You’re not sure why you even took on this mission, but now that you’re in, you damn well know that there’s only two options: get out or get caught.

You’re hoping desperately that you achieve the first one because the second one? Really doesn’t appeal.

But okay, you admit, you do live for the adrenaline rush—the thrill of the chase and the danger lurking around every corner.

What secret agent doesn’t?

Your hand is on your gun and you’re holding your breath as you peer around every corner, anticipating the guards who are, for some reason unbeknownst to you, not where they should be. It all makes you more than a little uneasy.
