Flying on the Ground

‘You’re gonna help me, Fartbreath.’

Alone with Schwarzkopf in the I.T. classroom, I didn’t argue.

He continued, ‘I think Layla will put out for me, if I can back somethin’ up.  I told her my dad owns a jet …’


‘So, your dad works at the airfield.  Get me inside, so I can take a selfie.’

‘You’ll need fake i.d.’

After logging on, Schwarzkopf yawned and left me to finish off. When he collected his airport pass, he looked pleased.

I was more pleased with the next day’s headline: Threat to Airport Security Thwarted.  Computer Reveals Student’s Terrorist Links.
