Chapter 3: A Special Occasion : Part 16Mature

“Sweet.” Matty said, looking at the date on the back, “They’re lead, good for long distances compared to the newer shells. I’ll keep them for a special occasion.” he said, sliding the four shells into the breast pocket of his jacket.
Tim nodded and took his turn to meet up with Mackenzie.
Mathew sat, waiting for Alain who was walking forward with the machine gun up in his shoulder. “Do you see someone?” Mathew asked.
“No, just checking my range to that other car.” Alain said.
“Alright, see you in a bit.” Mathew moved out.
Mackenzie stopped and knelt, thinking for a moment that he had seen movement. But when he lowered his weapon to get a better view there was nothing. He moved cautiously toward the closest vehicle and waited for Tim. It didn’t take long for him to arrive. “It think I saw someone up by that blue cavalier, but I’m not sure.”
“I don’t like this not sure shit man, it reminds me of bad horror movies.”
“Well, we’ve got guns and we’re not separated so even if it is a bad horror movie we’ve already got the slip right?”
“Sure.” Tim said, unsure of how to answer the question.
“Point is I think we’re getting close, I’ve got the range with the M14, either you take point, or we swap weapons here.”
“Hmm. Let me think. Yeah I’ll swap.”
“Ok.”
“Shit man I’m just kidding, I’ll take point.” Tim said laughing, you think I’d leave you hanging like that? Man I can’t even shoot that thing worth a damn, she’s yours.”
“Heh, alright, get moving and stay quiet.”
“Yes boss.” Tim said jokingly into Mackenzies ear.
Tim moved forward slowly, his weapon at the ready.
Mackenzie moved up to a near bye vehicle and took up a supported firing position, waiting for anything that might pop out. He watched Tim with his peripheral vision, and when he stopped moving he turned to see where Matt was.
