hundred word wednesday – “glasses”

Well. I wrote it. You’ve got to read it. Or you don’t. But please do.

Harvey was the one with the glasses, the one with the most obvious identifier in the heist crew. Some of the others had tattoos or scars, but they could easily hide those with clothing. Even with a mask over his face, the outline of Harvey’s thick glasses was obvious.

There were tense moments, a flashlight that maybe reflected off one lens, a guard that almost stopped when his glasses clacked to the ground. Thinking back, he couldn’t remember anything of the night that didn’t involve those glasses. He just knew that somehow, the next morning, he could afford corrective surgery.
