History

History was fascinating, she thought as she walked around the ancient museum. Her eyes were taking in all the glorious relics of the past, her mind whirling at their significances throughout. Her legs were straying too far, her hands were twitching by her side.

She was engrossed in the beautiful display before her, and in her haste in taking in everything before her, she was separated from her group. She shrugged, it didn’t matter, it wasn’t like they’d notice her missing, after all.

She looked around, noticing everything other than the historical relics. All around her were people like her, fascinated by the priceless objects around her, impressed and engrossed in the display. She smiled looking at one particular item, perfect.

Alarms blared around her, and everyone around stared at her in disgust and rage. To steal something from a museum this rich and especially that item was a heinous act and if she might be so arrogant, an impossible one. The easy part was done, now remained the hard aspect. But she was prepared, she’d been prepared for a long time.

History was fascinating, she thought as she executed her escape plan, and she’d guaranteed her place in it.

Crash

His eyes were everywhere at once, moving more rapidly than required. He had so much to do and judging by his actions, he was doing everything at once. In his haste, he never saw the other car, and similarly, neither did the other driver.

Rush

She quickened her pace, her body appeared a blur as she shot past the empty corridor. She wasn’t late, but she wasn’t early either, a fact that was causing her undue stress. In this world, slow and steady never win anything.
