(cont’d from Jonas’ previous June 3rd narration)
Even though I knew he had been followed, I honestly didn’t believe that I would hear the sound of the small gun whirring back to life. “So the little princess wants to avenge the hero?” I asked, turning my head ever-so-slightly.
Ayn stood several feet away, looking a little too symbolic in her wrinkled white dress and her trembling hands gripping the gun. “Get away from him,” she ordered, her voice strong and commanding despite how terrified her body language was.
I straightened my posture without standing up. “Or what? You’d shoot me?” My lips twisted into a smirk.
Without blinking, she jerked her arms down and pulled the trigger.
I flinched, shielding my face with an arm as the gravel at my feet exploded on impact. “Shit!” I swore in surprise. A piece of stone had slashed my hand, and I quickly pressed it against my mouth.
“I said get away from him.” This time she took a few measured steps towards where I crouched beside the body.
With a frown, I held up my hands next to my head and obediently backed away.
She kept the gun trained on me, through her pace increased and her attention shifted away as she got closer.
