Keith was no hero.  He’d read a lot of articles on Boot Syndrome, and it did nasty stuff to you.  Some people went into comas and just never came out of them again.  So he wasn’t going to try and stop those robbers.  Better to let them take what they wanted and let Midas sort it out.  But if there were an opportunity… He considered the accolades from his hiding place in the manager’s cubicle.  The boy, he was the weak link.  But how to get his gun?  That was when the kid’s phone went off.  Keith sprang into action.
