the smuggler’s bible

It’s a shady racket, but you have to pay like a gentleman

Stop a moment and lay it down. Just for a little while. Feel the cool breeze. The stash will be safe beside you in the sand.

You’re right to be worried, of course. By now they’ve found the loose bricks and the tunnel. The trail after that will be obvious. Even so, there is time to watch the sun set. There is time to take a deep breath.

I won’t sugarcoat things. Your pursuers have several advantages, but right now you’ve got the goods in hand and a head start. And, brother, some people would bet the stack with less.
