It's deja vu of the worst kind.

The crack of a sniper rifle.

Charlie out in the open.

Don too far away.

He bolts, running with panic fueled speed. He tackles Charlie and drags him to safety, patting him down, frantically searching for signs of blood.

"I'm okay, I'm not hit," Charlie manages, visibly shaken.

Don clutches him tightly in his arms, relieved. He lets out a breath he's been holding, tension he's had hidden inside him since Sniper Zero.

"Thank god," he mutters.

Twenty yards away Ian's staring down at the red patch rapidly spreading over his shirt.

Surprise! Did I get you? ;-)

Misdirection FTW!

Very special thanks to beta melissima for her assistance with this fic.

Emma, how could you?

But this was really good. Def. misdirection, FTW.

Be glad it was Ian. I almost picked *Larry* for Blood week. /evil grin/

Thanks, as always, for jumping in and reading and commenting so quick. It always makes me smile to see your name pop up in my inbox just after I publish. :-)

You better NOT pick on my Larry! *Huggles Larry*

Beware! I still have my eye on him!

Speaking of "beware", Edgie wants a word with you...

Bah! He's no longer third best shot after this...

You evil person you. How dare you shoot Ian.

Still, loved the misdirection whole thing.

Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on August 29th, 2008 04:50 am (UTC)
Hehehe I love being evil.

Ian's about the only person who *hasn't* been shot! Besides, who snipes the sniper?

I kind of want a longer version of this now. Hmmm...

Oh, no! Ian lost the sniper duel! o.0

Oh very well done! Misdirection indeed.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on August 29th, 2008 04:52 am (UTC)
Thank you! I almost wanted to put "insert evil cackle here", but you know - drabbles only get 100 words. /snicker/

Great story! I like the misdirection there, and how Don reacted to thinking Charlie was hurt.
devon99 on August 29th, 2008 04:35 pm (UTC)

You shot Ian!!
Isn't he indestructible?

Very nice literary sleight of hand.
