“Walking Ghosts” – Excerpt from TAMIA (Underground, Book 1) :
As he and Jen moved through the trees on the south side of the complex, a bullet ricocheted off a tree next to Watchdog’s head, barely missing his ear.
“Shit!” He swore as he dropped down behind the cover of the bushes. Then, in a whisper, he said, “We’ve been made, Cat! Some motherfucker’s shooting at us.”
She didn’t respond, and he turned to see why. His blood congealed as he saw her, lying half-propped against a tree. Dark blood soaked her sleeve, and her hand was clamped to her shoulder.
She reached to touch her ‘link as he crawled to her. “Damn bullet winged me, Watchdog. Wasn’t fast enough.I’ll be all right in a minute…”
“Like Hell you will!” Savage fear launched through him, and his words emerged more growl and speech as he tapped his hand to the group COMlink on his belt.” Angel, this is the Hornet’s Nest. We’re down one. Meet you at the front gate. Watch out, the ghost is walking. Repeat, the ghost is walking.”
“I am on the way.”
