Title: A senseless drive
Robert is a 21 year old college student studying creative arts, living with his parents in a quiet suburb; he’s a simple and quiet guy, complete opposite from his friends, probably the only one who made it into uni. One night while struggling to do his last assignment he gets a phone call from his mate George, asking him to drive him and his 2 mates to the convenient store, Robert agrees, what he doesn’t know is he is about to become a part of an armed robbery. This all becomes apparent to him while he is filling the car up with petrol and hears a loud bang behind him; he turns around to see his 3 friends running towards the car. Did they just rob a store? Or worse, kill someone?
