AU: From the minute you asked Michael for help, he knew you had an ulterior motive. He was just convinced he was smart enough to catch on this time. Of course, his crew was weary, perhaps even a little scared of you. And, as it turns out they had every right to be. After cutting off the armored car and taking out the drivers (thanks to Luke’s rather impressive long-distance shooting skills), you slyly slash Calum’s tires while he’s hooking your cars up to the vault and it’s only a matter of time before he’s spiraling off the road and forced to let you abandon him with a few million dollars in-tow. You’ve barely had time to unlock and ditch the hunk of metal carrying the money when Michael calls with insults and threats on his tongue. But, as the saying goes, “An eye for an eye.”

The tree limbs shadow across the grass,
                                                                      a dark language
Of strokes and ideograms
That spells out a different story than we are used to,
A story with no beginning and no end,
                                                                 a little one.
I leave it and cross the street.
I think it’s a happy story,
                                            and not about us.
