THE LIGHTNING ILLUMINATED THE alleyway before me as rain trickled from my hair, down my neck, and onto my back. For a moment I saw the way in front of me clearly, a trash bin to the left and empty pallets to the right.
Then it was gone, plunging into darkness as I wrapped my hand around my pistol, my finger itching for a target.
I stepped up against the wall to hide my profile while my eyes adjusted to the lower level of light.
I wouldn’t have been able to see at all if there hadn’t been a dim light halfway down the alley.
Keeping my pistol up, I used my shoulder to wipe away the rainwater from my face.
My instincts told me to flee, but I ignored them, knowing it was my paranoia doing the talking.
I shuffled forward, not caring that I went through a puddle as cold water seeped into my shoes. They were soaked anyway; I didn’t feel a difference.
I could see through the pallets and was certain Gary wasn’t hiding there. I was shortly on the other side of the trash bin and cleared that as well.
Where had the man gone? I wondered. How had he found me?
