“Twenty bucks those poles collapse and all anyone sees on camera are the pillars falling like dominoes.”
Grace gave her co-star an aghast look. “There are crew members up there!”
“I’m not saying they’ll collapse NOW.”
Grace thought better than to reply. Still, there had been some unnaturally bad luck surrounding the filming of their movie. The filming had been delayed by odd sounds that interfered with the audio, random props going missing, and even a camera that combusted internally last week. Grace shook the thoughts out of her head as the cameras began to roll.
The assassin strolled up the museum stairs, keeping an eye on her mark. A loud metal groaning filled the air.
The scene froze as everyone turned to see the poles holding up the museum set begin to rip apart. Another metal groan jerked everyone back to attention as they started scrambling madly to safety.
Above the uproar, the assassin could hear her co-star’s voice bellowing, “DOMINOES!”
