Hmmm... I appear to be unable to edit my original post. How annoying.|
I stared into the flames of the fire-pit, thinking of nothing. I was in that nicely loose mood I always vaguely remember, around the 2-3 bottle mark. I yawned, and slowly staggered to my feet, almost knocking over The Hamster in the process.
"Watch it man! You nearly spilled my drink then!"
I made my drunken way to the cabin, and my sleeping mat. I was all bleary eyed, but as I moved, I saw something out of the corner of my eye... a small shadow, just a tiny movement, up on the hill. But surely Kolya was up there? On watch? I checked, and sure enough, there he was, a shadowy figure in the distance.
The shadow moved again, and this time I was sure I saw something - a glint from the firelight, something metallic. In an instant I was cold sober.
I ducked quickly into the cabin. Two stalkers in there, one a rookie, one I had never seen before - probably not a "Darker", us hunters from the Dark Valley, a whole different kettle of fish, we are. The rookie was playing his guitar, real quiet like.
"You two, there's someone, or something, sneaking up on us!" I hissed, grabbing my dragunov from it's accustomed place above my sleeping mat.
"You two got your weapons with you? Torches? I think Kolya is already down. The other two are still sat around the fire. I need to warn them!"
