Jaquilyn's hand fell back down after Joachim slapped it, he hit the ground nearby shortly after. She smiled at Joachim's flattery. Even in a situation like this, it was nice to be complimented.

"Aw come on, you were good too. I thought about punching Matt in the face before we took off. Just to scare him into not chasing us." She laughed. It felt so good to laugh, but this moment had to end.

She closed her eyes for a bit longer than a standard blink. When they opened, she rolled herself over on the bag. The gun's hard shape pressed through the bag against her body. She didn't even need the poke in her ribs to remind her of everything that was important right now. Her hands moved forward through the thick grass and pressed into the ground. Her torso rose, and her legs stepped beneath it before straightening up.

All was silent except for hers and Joachim's breathing, plus the distant sound of somebody running away. Jaquilyn's eyes located and locked on the retreating body. Female, African American, bun. Jaq had seen Nina before, and figured from her stature and hair that she was some kind of gymnast.

She took a step towards the girl, wondering where she was going, and why she was leaving. Jaq's foot bumped into her new duffel bag. She looked down at it, then back up at the girl.

Was she running towards, or running away from. Was there somebody on the other side of the hill, or was she fleeing because she'd seen newcomers? Jaq's let her forward foot, the one that had kicked the bag, plant itself. Her back leg moved farther back. Her knees bent as she lowered her body slowly. Her thumb and the knuckle of her index finger squeezed the zipper between themselves and tugged it down the track.

The gun's smooth wooden handle placed itself in her hands as she pulled the long weapon from the bag. She had no idea how to work it. Yet.

"Thank you Mister Masters... How do we load this thing?"

It's kiss or kill and shoot to thrill when you do what you do.
I would not die for anyone, but I would kill for you.
