Superhero Shorts: The Cloud (ep.3)

The Cloud jumped onto his motorcycle and sped across town to where he thought Finger Bones would strike next, The Trusted Unified Bank.

He quickly rode passed the front of the branch and everything seemed quiet, but he knew Finger always took the back entrance in. He rode along a side street, flicking a switch on his motorbike which silenced the revs. He also switched the lights to infrared mode, which activated a camera and directed the image clearly into his visor. He rode silently into the back street. Hidden, at the back of the bank behind a couple of wheelie bins, the Cloud spotted Finger’s car.

“I’ve got you this time!” Cloud whispered to himself. He removed his helmet, placing it onto the bike, and ran towards the bank.

Finger had just managed to force the door open as Cloud grabbed his shoulder. He pulled him backwards to the ground. Stunned at being apprehended, Finger reached for his spray gun and the Cloud grabbed it just in time, tossing it between the wheelie bins. He then knelt on Finger’s chest, pinning him to the ground.

“Oh, this will not do at all!” Finger struggled to say, pinned down beneath the Cloud’s weight. “Mr Williams will be entirely disappointed in me. And you, Mr Cloud.”

“Who is Mr Williams, Finger? And why are you stealing these files?”

“Do you really think I can divulge that information, my dark friend? I do what I am paid to do, no questions asked.”

“So, where are you taking the files? You must know that!”

“Of course I do, but I cannot tell you that either.”

“Well, I’m not moving until you do, my bony friend. And I tend to get heavier!”

“Not for the time you are upon me.” Finger smirked. A heavy plank of wood crashed across Cloud’s shoulders, stunning him this time. He fell to the ground, allowing Finger to break free. Finger retrieved his spray gun and fired it squarely at the Cloud’s back. “I mustn’t be stopped. Certainly not by you.”

    • Cloud was too focused this time around, Prenin. He may be more aware next time – if there is a next time, that is! 😉
