Now! It must be now!
But Cole couldn't move! Yet it wasn't fear that held him.
Had he moved, Lucy's pistol would have spat lead and a bullet would have stopped Cole's heart instantly before burying itself in the far wall.
But he was frozen by Lucy's face suddenly paling deathly white and the guttural scream of horror erupting from her gaping mouth.
Movement outside the window had terrified her. In her heightened state, her stomach had flipped and her heart missed a beat even before she'd realised she'd seen anything.
To Lucy, everything suddenly became unreal.
Death was approaching.
