His cousin , Natalie Hirsch was fifteen, three years younger than him. With her straight brown hair always in a ponytail and glasses; she looked like a total geek. And she was too.
At family gatherings, her nose was always buried in a book and according to his aunt Samantha, she was a straight A student. And apparently she also wrote fan fiction. A total geek.
Geek girl finally finished picking out her book.
“You should totally read the Civil War series, “ she said to him. “I bet you would like it.”
“Is there a movie of it?”
“Yes, there's two of them.”
“Well then I'll watch that.” Issac answered cockily.
Natalie reached in the pocket of her blue sweater, pulled out a crumpled twenty dollar bill and went to pay for her book. Issac calculated in head how long it would take him to get home.
It was a fifteen minute drive from here to Natalie’s house, then a twenty minute drive from there to his house, so he would be home in about thirty five minutes.
Suddenly two people entered the store. They seemed to be in their late teens and wore all black, hoodie, pants and shoes.
The pair also wore baseball caps that covered their faces and had their hands in the pockets of their hoodies; not like that did anything to cover up the suspicious bulge there.
One of them made eye contact with Isaac, noted their eerily prefect faces, as though they weren't made of real skin.
Issac felt himself grow tense. Why did a robbery have to happen in the same store, the same time that they were in. He moved forward, to behind Natalie.
“Let's go,” he whispered in her ear.
Natalie looked at him, then nodded. She seemed to know what was about to happen.
They headed toward the door at a casual, but brisk pace. Issac took a quick glance over his shoulder back at the possible robbers; they were just shopping as usual. He sighed with relief.
Maybe this store wasn't about to get robbed tonight.
Part three will come soon
