"Hi Mike." said the stranger.
The voice sounded familiar, Mike turned round.
"Henry, hey Henry" Mike said trying to sound happy but he had a scared voice. "How did you find me."
"I can see you are leaving a normal life, what did you expect that we would never find you," Henry said.
"Another click could be heard behind Mike and he turned around with a shocked expression on his face when he saw Sara his wife holding a gun at his head.
"I told me where you are." Sara said.
"Hey honey is thee something you would like to tell me." Mike said sounding more terrified.
Mike saw a large man with broad shoulders walking towards him he knew who that men was.
"Hi Mike long time no see" Bruno said walking towards Mike with a pipe in his mouth.
Mike sat on the couch and nodded his head. Henry and Sara where still holding their guns.
Bruno sat across Mike.
"Well I have one last job....." Bruno was interrupted by Mike.
"No no, no more Bruno you gave me your word five years ago. You promised me you will never contact me or ask me for another job. Do you know how close we came to be caught in the diamond robbery and Sara how did you get involved in this. Are you part of Bruno's plan." Mike said looking at his wife pointing at gun at him,
"Sara put the gun down and Henry you too. You see Mike I never loss contact with any of my men. I gave you your share of the diamond and I hired sara to keep track of you. Marrying Sara was not my plan but that was the only way you would not suspect it was my plan." Bruno said as Henry and Sara put their guns down.
"I have contacted all my jewels robbery gang and some have agreed but others have disagreed some have families like Pinto who refused because he has a family now and dose not want to be part of the plan. Marcus Francis is on board despite him having a family. You can refuse if you want but know 22 million will be all yours." Bruno said holding his pipe wih his right hand.
"22 million. woow....no no I do not want to be part of your plan." Mike stood up when Sara held the gun at his head.
"Go ahead sara shoot me I rather be dead." Mike said looking at his wife. "Go ahead shoot me."
Sara put her gun down and looked away with tears in her eyes
"I am going to do it Mike it is Bruno's last....." Mike interrupted sara.
"And you believed him, that man always has a last but he is always thirsty for more money, he never has a last. He is always planning for another robbery. Can I remind you of how many lasts he had before the diamond robbery, he promised that was his last job and than two years later there was the Jewel of Emerald which disappeared. I know that was his job because I worked with two of the men who were killed at the police shoot out,"
"You do not understand this is truly a one in a lifetime deal, why don't you hear his plan." Sara said looking at Mike."
"I know you are planning to steal from Saffron. The biggest cruise ship in the world. Where the rich and famous display their art or jewels, There is Scarlet Divo's 50 million diamond wedding dress, Maxwell Hope's masterpiece costing 65 million or could be Crudes Ballions Ferrari collection in the ship. what is it Bruno. What are you going to steal." Mike said sitting across Bruno after walking around the sittingg room.
"Sara I do not want you to be part of this. " Mike said looking at his wife Sara. "It is too dangerous and risky for you. It looks tempting but dangerous."
"I am doing it Mike can you imagine 22 million, we can get a better house near the beach and a privte plane to fly anywhere in the world. Time to say bye to this boring normal life." Sara said walking towards Mike.
"This boring normal life is way better. The Saffron is risky for you. You have never robbed a thing in your life." Mike said.
"Actually I was part of the Jewel of Emerald robbery. I was never in any book club or bakery club. Remember the trip to Paris with the bakery club it was a lie. I was training for the emerald job. Remember I said I was meeting the book club every Wednesday and Friday to write a book I lied I was training for the Saffron. We have the ship layout from Marcus Francis, and we trained for it. You did not notice the Kitchen was renovated. I paid for it with the Diamond robbery, yes Mike I was part of your team. I was the one that blocked the police car chasing you. I have always been the shadow." Sara said looking at Mike who had a shocked expression on his face. She took a kitchen knife and tore the brown letter cushion were there was rolled up dollar bills and explained there was where she had hidden all her money.
Mike did not believe that his wife was a robber as well. All along he thought she was a Librarian who loved books and baking.
"Do you want to hear the plan or not." Henry said.
Mike nodded no and poured a glass of whisky and drank it fast.
"I told you this would be a waste of time." Henry said. walking toward Sara "He loves his life here."
If I get my hands on the millions I am leaving you. I am tired of this life and pretending to be something I am not. Today is the last time you are seeing me after I get my cash I am gone, You can join me and I will tell you the plan. Sarra said as she took a small bag and looked at Mike who nodded no and Sara walked out the door followed by Bruno and Henry.
A knock at the door woke Mike up. He had dozed of while watching TV he was still in his business suite from last night. When he opened the door it was Marcus Francis.
" You need to comw with me." he said waling Mike to the police car.
"Did you steal the police officer's car." Mike said looking shocked.
"No I have been an undercover cop, I have always been an undercover cop. I am the one who alerts the police officer. Today we finally captured Bruno. When he said he had a job for me I said I was in and alerted Saffron when I heard the plan. I designed a fake ship layout. Bruno and the robbers used the plan, I took caution in case Bruno changes his plan. Last night we took our positions knowing where they were and they fell in our trap."
"Is Sara okay." Mike said despite having a feeling something was wrong.
Marcus Francis stoped near a morgue, Mike felt hearthbroken he saw Sara lying on the cold morgue table. He put his hand on her wet hair and tears ran down his eyes. He started feeling guilty maybe he should have heard the plan and gone along, maybe they would have been in a plane flying to a remote island by now. He wished he had done something next to her was Henry with a bullet hole in his head. Henry was always the cautious one. They were other bodies which were covered up. He asked Marcus Francis what happened.
"Something must have distracted Sara when she was passing the lasser maze a tear dropped from her eyes which made the alarm come on which caused panic among the robbers and guests in the ship. It was good the guests were told there was going to be fire drill which was the alarm and no one should move from their place, Sara started running when she got shot by the guards on Saffron. Henry was close to getting the Cleopatra diamond when the alarm came on and he got shot when he ran. The plan went wrong for the other robbers as well. The ship was heavily guarded and they were all shot. Bruno was captured by the guards at the dinning room he was pretending to be an insurance broker." "The guests did not suspect a thing. You know something it was never Bruno's last job it was the robbers last job." Marcus Francis said to Mike who was looking at the other robbers and realized it was never Bruno's last job.
