In some cultures, what I do is considered normal.

Roman’s eyes widened in panic as Acacia Salinger joined their little impromptu meeting, carelessly waving a gun about. He flinched and barely stopped himself from flinging himself to the ground. Her chagrined expression did little to ease his abused nerves. Uncle Jack would shit a brick if he saw someone treating a gun so casually, he thought as he returned her smile.

Darren got his attention by speaking again, followed by Alice. Roman nodded in understanding as everyone explained that they hadn’t seen Alex. Of course, they had barely gotten mobile so that really was something he should have expected. He continued nodding, acknowledging both Darren and Alice’s offers to keep an eye out for Alex and Darren’s invite to group up later. “I appreciate it,” he said as they began to move away.

Darren seemed really competent and level-headed, and a part of Roman desperately wanted to run and catch up to the other boy. But he couldn’t go and try to hide until he found his sister. Unwilling to let happy gun-waver Acacia be unsupervised for too long, he turned towards her.

“Umm, I don’t mean to be an ass or anything, but waving that gun around will probably get you killed super fast.” Glancing furtively at Alice’s retreating back, he dropped his voice to a whisper. “Some people around here are already into the swing of things and don’t even need an excuse to start attacking.”
