We ran. It had been a narrow escape. The police drones were stopped by the casino doors and the security cameras didn't cover the alleys well. Two buildings over we climbed the fire escape to watch the cruisers scream and screech to a halt, too late to catch us. Laying low on the roof breathing hard, we giggled.

I rolled to my back, smiling and laughing through gasps of air as my heartbeat slowed. My entire body tingled. Such was the rush of adrenaline.
