Time Left (#90 Countdown)

Sinclair held out three fingers.

Ian felt his pulse quicken. He usually didn’t breach.

Three

He only had three toenails on one foot. Charlie never asked why.

Sinclair held up two fingers.

Just two hours ago he’d argued with Charlie about how much opposition they would face.
Two weeks into boot camp he’d snapped, picked a fight, gotten pounded but he couldn’t stop laughing

One finger.

One second left.

More time than it took for one of Ian’s bullets to hit its target.

More time than it took to pull a trigger once the order was give.

One second left.

Too Easy / Two, Twelve, Nine, Six and Four
