Haru raised the gun as his target’s bodyguard stood and reached in his coat. He fired two bullets into him and then into the other bodyguard as well. His target brought his hands up, placating him and he pulled the trigger. He felt his gun slip back into its holster as he turned away and that’s when the pain blossomed in his back. He gritted his teeth as he twisted around, pulling his gun free and firing into the head of the surviving bodyguard. The man went down with a shocked look on his face and Haru moved closer, seeing the vest peeking out of his shirt.
“Shit!” He spat as he reached up and touched his shoulder where the bullet had exited. Luckily it had hit him high, but he needed to get out of there and to Cili. He knew he would never hear the end of this from her. He never slipped up, he was one of the best. He could partially blame it on intel. No one had said anything about bullet proof vests, but he also knew he should have expected it. He made sure the other bodyguard was dead then left, getting into his car and pulling out of the driveway.
“Oh stop being such a baby, it’s four stitches.” Cili said as she pulled the wound on Reugar’s leg closed.
“It hurts, Cili, damn.”
“Well maybe next time you won’t go vaulting over wrought iron fences.”
“For a doctor who works on killers you sure have a lot of sass…ow…I’m sorry.”
“Keeps me grounded.” She finished up and wrapped his leg then handed him a roll of gauze and medical tape. “Keep an eye on it and if you think you might rub the stitches then put that over it and try to keep it dry.”
