Cole was about to speak, but Clint shot him a glance that said "No! Keep quiet!"
Astonishingly, the lawman appeared to understand.
Clint heard Zeke shift slightly behind him.
The potential bullet hole in his back throbbed as if it was real.
A clock ticked ponderously into the air.
Outside, sunshine suddenly lit up the world. Sunlight drifted into the room like a searchlight
"Move!" screamed Zeke.
It had to be now. While he still knew where Zeke was.
The thumb of Zeke's left hand flicked the glass off the tray and the whole world spun into slow, silent motion.
