100 Word Challenge #9

As I walked into Grill’d, to order a cheese burger, I saw a newspaper stuck on a sign. I sat down and unwrapped my burger, someone tapped me on the shoulder. I turned around to see who it was but no one was there. For a second time someone tapped me on the other shoulder. I looked over and no one was there. As I looked back at my burger it had disappeared. Someone had stolen my burger. I could not believe my eyes, there was a pair of hands with my burger in it stuck to the wall like glue. The hands where made of newspapers. My eyes freaked out!
