Work Text:

As the creatures' claws clicked across the atrium floor Jess adjusted the EMD in her hand and changed the settings to the highest possible. Then she ran through everything that Becker had told her – firm grip, don't tense up, breathe, hold the gun with both hands, aim for the largest target possible, don't close your eyes and only stand your ground if absolutely necessary.

With Lester's pained murmurs in her ear Jess considered it very necessary. So as the creature she'd only ever read about came back into view, she swore she'd do Becker proud, and fired the killing shot.
