Chapter 63 of The Empty City

By Andrew Looney

 

Doug was thinking hard about the ad.

An Atomic Bomb!

Wow!

With an Atomic Bomb, he could...

He could...

Hmm, what could he do?

He could hold up a bank.

Yes!

That's it! Rob a bank, with a nuclear weapon! Threaten to blow up the City unless they gave him lots of money! It would work!

He left the elevator and went to a pay phone. He called the Android Sisters and told them he wanted to buy their bomb. He scrounged up all of the money he had, which was a little over two hundred dollars. He left the building, heading for the subway.

Later that night, he returned home with the Atomic Bomb wrapped up in a sheet. He started to make plans.
