A single shot rang out across a dusty Afghan valley, stilling a machine gun's threatening retort.

"Ha ha ha! Got you, you bastard!"

"Keep it down, you idiot!" Colby hissed. Roger was a good sniper, but way too cocky.

"I'm fine if you give your own ass away," came a terse whisper on the other side of Colby. When he looked over Kadeem looked seriously pissed off. "But if you give us up too I'll shoot you myself."

"Where's backup?" Colby groused quietly. "They promised to send someone."

"They're sending Edgerton," Kadeem said, nodding his approval of the decision.

"Who the fuck needs Edgerton?" Roger complained. "I'm all the sniper we need. I..."

Another shot cracked the brief silence and all three of them whipped around to find a heavily armed insurgent falling to the ground behind them with a neat hole in the center of his forehead.

"Oh, man..." Kadeem shook his head, stunned. "That was too close." He reached over and gave Roger an angry shove. "That's how you protect your unit! You, asshole, just got schooled."

"Not just schooled..." Colby searched the valley and found no proof Edgerton was ever there. "That? That was the master class."

Hee! I love this, Emma. And that's just so very Ian, too. No words necessary when his gun does all the talking.

Dumbasses. Good thing Edgerton was there or they and Colby would be toast.
