Armed Bastards and Good Friends
“Don’t move! You’re surrounded by armed bastards!”
Skelton grips his gun with a sweaty palm and pushes his fringe away from his eyes with his other hand. Cartwright sees the shaking fingers and lays a comforting hand on him. Flinching, he shoots a startled look in her direction.
Annie smiles, reassuringly. The roaring sound leaves Chris’ ears and the tremors in his fingers stop, enabling him to grip the gun without fear of losing it, or shooting off his own foot.
He smiles back at Annie. The desperados are giving themselves up now.
It’s a great day to be alive.
