SM’s On The Scene:
“Woman Gives Birth,
Thief Comes To Aid”
The scene: Huffman-Lockley Bank, corner of Rich and Cheater.
A cold, sunny morning, few customers in the bank–mail
carrier, Madison Avenue clone, silver-haired elderly couple,
and a very pregnant woman. In barges thin, tall man wearing
all black, masked, waving a gun.
“Everyone down on the floor, no talking and you won’t get
hurt.” Mail carrier pales, elderly man puts a hand
to his chest, and Madison Avenue clone tries to look
cool. The pregnant woman begins to scream, “I’m in labor.
Get me to a hospital!” Everyone looks at each other.
The thief continues waving his gun around. Then, the woman’s
water breaks. She cries, “the baby is coming!”
“Ah Jeez,” mutters the thief, “what perfect timing. Lady,
you need to get down on the floor. Everyone else stay
where you are.” Thief puts his gun down beside him,
and reassures the terrified woman that he knows
what to do. With surprising gentility and skill,
he delivers a new baby girl. Everyone applauds. Thief
races out the door. “Who was that man?” asks the mail
So, Mr. Thief, all-in-black, you are a hero. Come
forward. The bank is not pressing charges.
