“Charlie raised the crossbow, the tip of the bolt subtly shifting to the feet of the first intruder, which was how his mind cataloged the two men. “Who the hell are you? Why are you out here?”
“I could ask you the same question, friend,” the first man replied, a hint of amusement in his voice. Another noise from Charlie’s right coincided with the appearance of a third figure, a man in similar hunting garb—That’s not quite right; it’s tactical clothing, like those boys in the military wear that I saw on the History Channel—who now stood silent next to a dying oak tree, blackened and mortally wounded by a bolt of lightning.
“Who the hell are you people? You’re not from the county, are you?” Charlie asked, the hairs on the back of his arms and neck vibrating in alarm.
“I’m afraid not,” the man replied, a hint of regret underpinning the words. The man looked to Charlie’s right and nodded.
Charlie sensed the movement and tried to turn, and panic gripped him as he swung the crossbow to his right. He heard two sounds like loud mechanical bangs, and his momentum faltered. He looked down and saw dark wetness spreading in two places on the right side of his chest. Weakness slammed into him like an invisible hand, and he collapsed to his knees, the crossbow falling to the dark, dank earth.”
