Boom

The clock started ticking down.
Dialle looked at his partner, saw his eyes widen, the sweat rolling down his forehead.
"Are you sure this is the right wire?" Bennett asked.
"No. Are you?"
Bennett's face soured. This was gonna be bad and they both knew it. Dialle made the sign of the cross, closed his eyes and positioned his wire cutters to cut the wire.
"Wait!" Bennett suddenly shouted.
"What is it?"
"I think you should cut the red one."
"Why?" Dialle asked.
"In movies, it's always the red one. Cut the red one." Bennett nodded frantically and motioned his partner to proceed.
Dialle swallowed again and prepared to cut the red wire. Before he clamped the cutters, he gave one last look to Bennett. Bennett nodded. Go ahead.
The explosion killed everyone within a half-mile radius. Later, as they floated up to Heaven, Angel Dialle looked over to Angel Bennett who wilted under his gaze.
Finally Bennett spoke. "Think you shoulda gone with the first one."
"You think?"
