Superfluid

The lights in the house were off. The car was in the driveway, not in the garage, and that told Grant one key detail – the garage could be clearly avoided. If he was feeling particularly industrious, or if things got bad in a hurry, he could steal the sensible sedan. He turned on the engine but not the headlights, and relocated his vehicle two blocks away, between a pair of similarly darkened houses like a house guest. Grant tightened his gloves, flexing his fingers, and after waiting ten minutes, he exited the car, made his way back toward the house he’d spent an hour watching, and approached the front door. Could try brute force, could try to pick the lock. Could break a window. Could just shoot off the lock and round up the occupants before they have a chance to do anything. First take a deep breath. Think about where you’re going to go and what you’re going to grab. Think about how long you want to spend inside. Think about what you’re willing to do in case things get dicey. Remind yourself that you’re not going to get caught. Then step back, and break the door frame.
