He threw his body at Holly and shoved her to the ground, covering her body with his. Being with her had completely dulled his instincts. He hadn’t noticed any signs of danger, hadn’t felt a warning in his gut that something was off or someone was after him.
One thing was certain. He didn’t have to worry to he was paranoid. If he’d taken another step forward, he wouldn’t be worried about a thing right now. He’d be dead. Likely, Holly would be too. “Don’t say a word. Don’t move. Our lives depend on it.”
Her eyes widened in panic, but she nodded.
Shit. If this was anything more than a hunter’s bullet gone awry, the killer wasn’t going to leave a witness when he took out Justin. Holly was in just as much danger as he was. Lying on the ground, they were protected by a large boulder between them and the direction of the fire. Of course, luck probably didn’t have anything to do with it. The killer had likely chosen it, so they wouldn’t spot him until it was too late.
He slowly lifted his body off Holly. “Don’t move, no matter what happens. Understand?”
Her eyes widened, looking more horrified, but she nodded again. Damn it. This is why he didn’t want her anywhere near him. Because of him, she was in danger.
