“Dan stopped by the door, casually blocking it, while Haley and Lawrence stepped into the center of the store.
Haley reached into the side pocket of her bag and pulled out a hammer.
The cashier’s eyes widened. He opened his mouth to shout when Lawrence interrupted.
“Everyone in the corner! Now!” Lawrence commanded, drawing a chrome .375 Magnum revolver and a frag grenade from his black purse.
The people gasped and screamed. A few turned to the front door, only to see Dan guarding it.
“Now! Now! Now!” Lawrence shouted. “Or people start dying!”
Like a sheepdog, he herded the cashier and the patrons into the farthest corner of the store.
All the while, Haley’s hammer smashed glass display cases. The duffel bag’s strap ran diagonally across her chest and hung open at her belly. Moving quickly, she shoved handfuls of necklaces, earrings, and rings into the bag.
Lawrence aimed the gun at various people and kept the grenade in plain view. “You touch your phone, and we all go boom.”
Dan glanced over his shoulder. Outside, pedestrians strolled by, completely unaware of the robbery occurring on the other side of the tinted windows.”
