The Betrayal Chapter 27 snippet 2
The noise and the darkness of the club would disguise the sound of her silenced pistol perfectly, Channon mused as she cradled it in her hands. Just like the murky ambiance had allowed her to have the pistol in the open, it would work to her favor again. Two for the price of one, she thought with a smile that would certainly be enough for them to promote her!
While Kosloski’s choice of seat wasn’t surprising to her, he had been sitting there every damned time he was in the club Almir’s had really surprised her. With her back turned to Channon, only a mirror allowed her to see what was happening behind her. For someone with the reputation of Almir, she mused, that was a critical mistake to make.
And one I intend to make you pay for with your life, she thought as she pulled the slide back on the pistol to chamber a round.
Listening to Kosloski’s story was dull and boring, Kate mused as she lifted her eyes up. She rubbed her forehead as she looked at herself in the mirror across from her. The constant stress of the last several days were starting to take it’s toll, she noted as she could see the lines forming around her eyes.
If I’m careful I’m going to make myself look a lot older, she thought as she went to turn her attention back to Kosloski.
In the mirror, something glinted in the dim light, catching her attention. Raising an eyebrow, she switched her eye to dim light mode to see what it was. In this dim of a lighting, she reminded herself, nothing other then a weapon would make any kind of glint…
Channon aimed at Kosloski first, the pistol now as part of her body. She would shoot him first, she told herself, and then shoot Almir second. While Almir would be the harder target to kill, if she killed Kosloski first it was liable to stun her into inaction just long enough to allow Channon to shoot her.
Goodbye Almir, she thought as she pulled the trigger.
The blood went cold in her veins and she felt her breath hitch in her chest. Gun, she told herself as she recognized the weapon in the blonde haired woman’s hand. How stupid could she have been to not keep an eye on where she had gone?
I can’t believe I was this god******stupid! Kate raged as she reached out with a hand to grab Kosloski’s shirt.
“Gun!” she yelled as she pulled them both the floor, praying to God she wasn’t too late…
