Snipers in the Sun
Wiping the sweat from my brow, I crouch lower behind the small, upturned car. My enemy’s out there somewhere, but where? Slowly, very slowly, I edge forward to have a peak around the side of the car when… WHAP! My back arches at the cold, shock of impact. I’ve been hit! I’ve been hit! But how? How did he get behind me? Falling to my knees, I desperately try to return fire. But nothing happens. It won’t shoot. I’m empty.
‘You win that one’ I shout with a grin before running to the tap for another refill.
