A/N: I'm back :) I'm sorry that I sort of abandoned this for a long long time. I doubt anyone cares...but I'm back now :)
Song: All the Stars in Texas by Ludo
I met her at a bank. It was a Friday night. I had a gun in my pocket and a black ski mask pulled securely over my face. My best friend Bentley was at my side, dressed similarly. We locked eyes and entered the bank. "Freeze!" I yelled, taking my gun out of my pocket and holding it above my head so that everyone could see it. "This is a hold up!" It was then that we noticed that the cashiers were already loading money into bags at gunpoint.
The two robbers turned and glared at us, keeping their guns trained on the bank employees. One was tall with a round belly, and the other was smaller and feminine. Bentley aimed his gun at the man. Two shots were fired and they both went down. I wanted to kneel down next to my friend and help him, but I couldn't take my eyes off of the slim woman with her gun aimed at my face.
Suddenly, she turned around to face the cashiers. "Why'd you stop?" Frightened, the employee continued putting money in the bag.
Once the bag was full, I stepped forward and pressed my gun to the woman's back. "Thank you for doing all the work for me." I whispered into her ear. "Now, if you don't mind, I'll be taking my money." I walked forward, keeping my gun pressed to the small of her back. The elderly woman behind the desk handed me the bags of money. "See you around." I said before running out of the bank and throwing the money in the trunk of my car.
When I ducked into the driver's seat, I noticed that someone was already in the car. It was the woman robber from the bank. "What are you doing here? Get out." I reached across her and opened the passenger-side door.
She put the seatbelt on and pulled the door closed. "My father and I did most the work. Your friend killed him. The least I deserve is half the money."
I rested my forehead against the steering wheel. "Fine. Take half of the money from the trunk and leave. I've already wasted enough time here and I really don't fancy getting caught by the police." She didn't get out. "What else do you want?" I was itching to get back on the road.
"This isn't the first bank that you've robbed." She stated. I looked in the rearview mirror nervously as I nodded. "With your friend back there dead, you'll need a new partner."
"Fine," I said quickly, "you're in." I started the car and sped away from the bank.
That was a year ago. As reluctant as I was in the beginning, I ended up falling in love with her. I want to settle down with her, start a family. After all these months robbing bank after bank, we have more than enough money. I've nearly asked her several times now, but everytime she looks at me with mischief in her eyes, not even all the stars in Texas can rival their shine. I simply can't resist her.
