The man drew a gun from his tattered fatigue jacket.
He pointed it at me.
His demands fell on deaf ears.
I was too busy trying to decide if his gun was loaded. Bullets had become rare since The Day, but it wasn’t outside the realm of possibility that he would have a few.

I narrowed my eyes and said nothing.
He pulled the hammer back; it made a loud click as it locked into place.
I slowly reached down and grasped the hilt of my fighting knife. I drew the rusty, jagged blade and smiled.
