Spin. Aim. Fire. Spin.

Pause.

Fire.

Pause.

Spin. Aim. Fire.

Chris spins back into hiding as cement explodes around him, listening for Sam's return fire. His heart sings as it comes after the anticipated pause, a melody they've sung together a thousand times. The sound comforts him in the knowledge that his partner is there backing him up as he always will. They know without checking where the other man will be, exactly how long it will take for each to reload, compensating for the other's weaknesses without conscious thought.

Spin. Aim. Fire. Spin.

Pause.

Nothing.

The melody is over.
