Sneak Peek to ‘Shadows Creed’ update - Chapter 36
Matthew slapped a cartridge into his gun and swung it up lining up the sight with the target on the wall. Jimmy raised his eyebrows at his friend watching as he gazed calmly along the length of the barrel.
Zacky grimaced. “Do you really think that’s necessary?”
“Yes,” Matthew responded tightly. He jerked his head slightly. “If they come looking for Johnny and find him gone, I need to be prepared.”
“For what? A shoot out?” the mechanic snorted in disgust. “Come on, dude…like that’s going to happen.”
Matthew pegged his friend with a hard look. “You do realise if they find out I’ve disobeyed a direct order they could arrest me.”
“Oh, so you’ll just kill them to prevent that?” Zacky sounded angry now. Jimmy shifted uncomfortably on his feet.
The three of them were at a private shooting range about a mile from Elijah’s residence. Brian had remained behind with the elder male and his father who had finally come around to see how they were going. Jimmy and Zacky had followed an on-edge Matthew to the shooting range where he was putting his Beretta M9 through its paces. The standard military issue firearm had been in his possession since he’d joined the Creed and it was the one weapon he was permitted to keep when he finished. It was for personal use not just official duties.
