Jake and James were loading up the last of the space that was left in one of the pickup trucks when Dustin came running in their direction.
"People," he gasped, pointing to the side of the building. "People with guns and stuff!"
James and Jake both reached inside the truck and grabbed their rifles. James reached out and snagged Dustin by the wrist before he could tear off around the side of the building again.
"Calm down... Take a deep breath," James said in a calming voice. "Where are they?"
"Coming into the parking lot... They're on foot," Dustin said. Both Nell and Holly stepped out of the shattered back door that lead into the department store, their arms loaded down with clothes in various sizes.
Jake sighed in relief, reached down and unsnapped the strap that held his gun in its holster. Checked the safety on the rifle, flicked it to off and turned to Nell and Holly. "We have visitors," he turned to Dustin "Did they see you?"
"I don't know... I don't... I don't think so, but I'm not sure," he answered, still breathless.
A frightened look came into Holly's eyes. "How many? Are they armed? When," she asked?"
"Two guys... A couple ladies and some kids... Little kids... And a dog too," Dustin said. Thinking as he went along.
"Okay," Jake said. "We'll all walk out. Have your safeties off. You may really have to shoot. For Christ's sake don't shoot yourself... Or me... Or one of us. Point at who you want to hit and shoot. Like Katie showed you. But don't shoot unless you have to. Maybe these people are okay." He waited until everyone had nodded.
Nell and Holly took the safeties off their guns, held them briefly, and then returned them to their holsters. Nell kept touching the curved metal butt of her pistol nervously.
