THE THIEF IN THE HOUSE

by BRENDAN DuBOIS

It was a cold fall day on Lake Winnipesauke in New Hampshire, as Roger Tilman motored his sixteen-foot aluminum skiff to the dock before him, about twenty feet away in the frigid waters. The maple and oak trees along the water’s edge were colored bright orange and red, but Roger ignored the colorful foliage: he was looking at the nice big white house in front of him, the nice big target, for Roger was a thief, and proud of it.

Why not? He had grown up around the lake, never had anything given to him like the rich folks who lived here and looked down on him and his friends, and for a few years now, every fall, Roger had fun motoring around, going up to the empty docks and houses, breaking in and stealing whatever he could, and then motoring away to another target.
