Night 16


Blake set the alarm on the bedside clock for four-thirty. He dressed quickly in his new Wal-Mart jeans and plain long-sleeved navy T-shirt. He checked the mirror: clean and neat but non-descript. His hair was growing out from the prison buzz cut and was beginning to look scruffy. He’d get a haircut later that day.

Blake retrieved the flyer detailing the upcoming Home and Garden Tour. The flyer listed a website for “more information.” He logged into the site on his computer and found what he was looking for—the address of each of the twenty homes on the tour. He printed it out, folded it carefully, and placed it in the pocket of his jeans.

Blake shut down his computer and concealed it in the drawer containing his clothing. If it got stolen, so be it. He was a wealthy man.
