Word count: 250
Beneath the drone of background hum it was giving off, Bonnie could just pick out Bing's voice coming from the wireless sat behind the counter. She picked a loaf out of the basket in the the window and pondered on whether to get a bottle of ginger ale too, deciding against - she'd rather trade up for a flask of gin from across the street.
She smiled at the brunette shopgirl as she counted out her coins. The girl reminded her of herself, how she used to be, all bored-small-town-girl with no options. If she didn't want to keep Clyde for herself she might have invited the girl along for the ride.
The song on the radio ended and a man's voice broke through clearly, beginning a news bulletin. His first item was about the now notorious Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker who, it had been reported, were in the area. He gave a brief description as the shopgirl handed over Bonnie's change and her blue eyes began to widen slowly.
"Youre not that one, are yah?" She nodded at the box. Bonnie dimpled at the girl and pulled her coat aside to show her a colt.
"You wont tell on us, will yah?" The girl paused. "Here, I'll give you someth'n else to tell yeh friends." She darted in and placed a quick peck on her lips. She picked up her bread and took a toffee apple off the stand, gave the girl a wink and walked out the door.
