Hiding

The scanner bleeps, the item registers on the screen. Cream cheese $3.95
Another bleep and another random item, wholegrain bread $2.99.
The checkout girls all stand in a row, heads down and lethargic arms endlessly scanning items. Occasionally they look up and offer a brief empty smile, distant eyes looking to the clock.

Bleep, Bleep, Bleep. Three non descript items pass under isle number three’s radar without a second thought, her mind else where. Plastic bag, credit card, swipe, thank you, look up, brief empty smile….frozen on number three’s face.

Taking the credit card back Detective Flanagan smiles, hiding the shock he is feeling. He nearly drove straight home, forgetting the groceries his wife requested earlier.

‘No-where to go this time, Anna’
Anna’s eyes flick to the doors, can she be bothered outrunning him again?
