This is too easy.
That was the first thought the intruder had after piercing the perimeter. With the dignitaries expected to be in attendance the next few days, he had expected a heightened state of security and had planned accordingly. Surprisingly, there had been no resistance up to this point.
Too easy, his mind screamed, waiting for an alarm to sound. When no alarm was raised he moved on, fearing that each step could be the one where he got caught. Perhaps the reputation of the compound’s proprietor had been grossly exaggerated, he wondered.
After a quick look to confirm that he was alone on the field, the uninvited guest sprinted from a hiding place behind a fuel dump depot toward the nearest hangar. For a moment, the intruder wondered if the pack he wore across his back would give away his presence. In the silence of the night every noise sounded as loudly to the man’s ears as if they had been broadcast over the public address system.
His heart thundered in his ears as he came to rest on the far side of the hangar. His back to the wall, the intruder took a moment to slow his breathing. The last thing he needed was to hyperventilate. That would put an end to the plan before it even began.
Once he was certain no one had seen his mad dash across the darkened field, the intruder eased out into the light and jimmied the locked door. It was not the first lock he had ever picked. In his line of work such illicit skills were almost a prerequisite. Much to his surprise, it was nothing more than a simple lock. The going was easy as the U shaped bar popped loose from the clasp.
He hurried inside and closed the door behind him.
He was so close to his goal he could taste it.
