Ed and BJW:
The lady smiles. "That's sterling of you for sure. Let me have five minutes and I'll take you up for it. And my name's Emily." She takes the intake paperwork from the nurse, sits on one of the benches, and starts to write. It takes her about three minutes to fill out; when she's done, she folds it in half and returns it to the same nurse, who doesn't look happy about what's written on it. But Emily is already halfway across the room; she says, "all right, let's split."
The sirens sound like they're closer than they were before.
For a moment, the two gunmen just keep their weapons pointed at you. Then everything goes white.
When your vision returns, you can see that the right eye of the gunman in the rear is projecting a beam of dazzling white light that moves slowly down your body. His features (except for the eye itself) are visible now, looking pale in the intense light. He's got a roman nose, a coarse black moustache, and a round scar on the left side of his face. He's wearing a closed slate-colored uniform jacket with brass buttons over dirty trousers of a similar color. His companion is dressed similarly and also has black hair, but his face is still impossible to see.
The light reaches your feet, then shuts off abruptly, and you can only see outlines again. The soldier with the lantern eye lets his rifle hang by his side and puts a hand on the barrel of his companion's. After a moment, the other soldier lowers his gun, too, and speaks again. "Ah, you were camping here before? That is very well. My name is Mark, and this is Bert. We are traveling to the city."
The unknown green car follows you into the alley and stops. The two rear doors open, and a man with a suit and a revolver steps out of each. One of them heads directly to the front of your car on the driver's side. He opens the door, and waves his gun to indicate that Fredericks should step out. The other, a ham-faced man with tiny eyes and a few wisps of hair emerging from a hat that's several sizes too small, taps on your window.
"Thanks, friend. No need to make things difficult, right? Why don'tcha open 'er up, and we'll go for a ride, huh?"
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.
