The Neko Kid
By @wolfin_training & Anonymous
The Kid opened the chamber of his six shooter and spun it around. He narrowed his eyes and scanned the surrounding area, counting quickly. "One, two, three, four, five..."
Five blurry bullets for five blurry gunmen.
The Kid sighed, wishing he hadn't downed that leftover bottle of whiskey he'd found earlier.
He looked up glaring at the rival gang members in turn, there was no other choice.
He grumbled under his breath "Another day closer to death." He closed his revolver with a click.
"But that means..." A crazed grin began to spread across his face. "Another day to live!"
He sprang up and violently kicked over a barrel just in time. A spray of gunfire shot out and tore into it, beer spurting from the fresh bullet holes!
He aimed at the first gunman to his left. A perfect headshot. The second man was straight ahead. A split second later, another headshot.
The Kid laughed as bullets danced around his feet and hit open air. He swung himself around to face the gunman he'd spotted crouching by the hitching post. The third man stumbled and tripped backwards into the horse troff. A dark, red wound stained his chest and was spreading into the water.
The forth gunman circled around and fired his shotgun, but the Kid had anticipated this move. He pivoted to his right, narrowly avoiding the shot. He returned the gunfire with a single shot that burrowed its way into the mans eye. The mans knees buckled and he crumpled to the floor.
The Kid's ears pricked up. He heard the fifth shooters gun cock and click. The bastards out, the Kid thought, before he emptied his last bullet into the mans neck...
A deadly silence hung in the air.
Suddenly, the Kid's sharpe gaze caught the glint of sunlight on metal. The water tower, there was a sixth gunman!
"Aww, horse shit..."
A loud, single, shot rung out and the Neko Kid fell to the ground. - 21 hours ago
