55FFF - Chapters XIV and XV

Well...I'm still catching up, sort of, with my flash fiction. Today's section comes in two parts...still a cliff-hanger, but I thought it'd make more sense to have two chapters together. Is that cheating, by the rules of 55FFF? Pffft...who cares? Rules? We don' need no STINKEEN RULES...

Sorry, too much after-dinner espresso. Anyway, boys and girls, here are Chapters 14 and 15 in the continuing saga of Kate and the fat man...

Chapter XIV - Present day
The sniper carefully laid the M40's barrel over the edge of the roof and took aim.

Inside the room the fat man turned to his aide and said, "Show her how I resolve Mexican standoffs..."

A slow trigger squeeze..."PFFFT" went the rifle.

A split second later, the target's head exploded like an overripe melon.

Chapter XV
Inside the house, the two that remained dove for cover.

In the van outside, the FBI man sat bolt upright, his face showing shock and terror.

Keying the mic he yelled, "What the hell was that? Status!!!"

He never heard the response--quickly and silently his partner drove a stiletto into the base of his skull...
