Bloody luck, what a day for the lift to play truant, Abdul muttered under his breath.
His hands slid down and adjusted the overhang around his waist.
A slow smile creased his lips as he made past the security gates.
The lone guard slumped on the rickety chair was lost to the world.
Abdul quickly glanced past him at the oblong Titan wall clock that clung to the wall.
Five past 12. The shift would change in another ten minutes. The next guard was ex-army, a man with an overdeveloped sense of duty, a martinet who asked umpteen questions, possessed X-ray scanner eyes to boot.
Abdul cupped the tool kit. His fingers slid past the torch, the wrench and settled on the pipe cutter.
He new his job well; knew he didn’t have time to kill; knew he had just about time to kill.
He hurried up the steps.
