Plan of Attack
July 5, 2009
Don't blink or you'll miss it.
I don't do many short stories and I was rather pleased that I was able to get this one

Ellison sat in his vehicle and carefully unfolded the map. He glanced down at the list then decided on his plan of attack. Should he choose the more direct route with known hazards or the more circuitous route which increased his overall time inside? Which was more dangerous?
Would he be better off making several quick in and out forays instead? He came to a decision, double checked his safety equipment, then grabbed the list and refolded the map. Jim glanced around, stepped out of his vehicle, took a deep breath for courage, and entered the mall to go shopping.
