Someone is on the roof.

Sweat prickles coldly on the back of his neck, every tiny sound feeling like the scratch of a blunt chisel against his skull. A wave of nausea rolls through his gut, fear manifesting itself in hot, tight cramps that seem to ebb and flow in time with his breath.

His worst nightmare come true. Again.

The handle of the gun is cold in his shaking hands, but he�s not going to just sit here, waiting to die. Not again.

The roar that tears from his throat as he bursts from the van echoes through the scrubby trees, then dies as he stares up at his would-be assailant. The raccoon returns his gaze with apparent disdain and disinterest, then turns its back on him.

Birkoff blinks as the blood rushes back into his brain. If he didn�t think it might make him throw up, he might actually laugh.
