      Thank you for your great response.
      Should it really occur, that all the work is done before the sprint ends, i think we would add another small story to the sprint.
      I'll inform you ;)

      Thanks, regards,
      Christof

That could mean to pay down some technical debt, add some more unit tests, develop some more business facing test automation, or pull the next tiny story suitable for the two days into the sprint, but not to commit on it. That could also mean to do some pre-planning on the stories to come, add some acceptance criteria, or, or, or...
