Micro Fiction Challenge III

Third time's a charm! I am become quite familiar and somewhat comfortable with writing different length micro-fiction stories. It is the perfect way to share with everyone the short scenes that come to me out of the blue. This one is 200 words exactly. Enjoy! 

The Mark

I followed him through the bar and out the back into the alley, tugging at my too short dress. I'd forgotten to grab my coat and I shivered as the wind hit my bare legs. I leaned against the brick wall and struggled to light a cigarette. I took a long drag and pushed my skirt up on my thighs as his eyes traveled the length of my body and then back again. I smiled seductively and held out my room key.
"I don't think we'll be needing that." He slapped the key out of my hand and pulled me against him. I forced him face down onto the pavement, twisted his arm behind his back and with my knee shoved into his spine I handcuffed him.
"You have the right to remain silent..." My voice trailed off into laughter. I never could get it all out. "Come get him boys." I shouted out to the shadows.
The three of them came out of hiding. My brothers; partners in crime.
They took his watch and his rings, his wallet and his Italian shoes. I asked them not to leave any marks on his face. He was too pretty for that.
