INT. Costume/clothing store, Afternoon

LizzaTheAlien - on 02/27/2015

Fade in from black. Radio music plays. Pan over the clothes to find a girl browsing things. She picks up a few things, casually holding them up to herself and looking in the mirror, and then throwing them down. Then she sees a fancy necklace with a large price tag. She scoops it up and begins to exit the store without paying.

Well what would you do?

LizzaTheAlien - on 03/03/2015 2 versions.

guy

I'd cause a diversion, get to my car without being seen, hack the store camera feed, delete the past 12 hours. Then I'd casually drive away.

LizzaTheAlien - on 02/27/2015

Well aren't you professional. *sighs* I don't know how to hack. Or cause a diversion for that matter.

LizzaTheAlien - on 02/27/2015
