Edward had just taken a bite out of his milk chocolate bar, when he heard a silent gunshot. He instinctively spiralled around his healthy leg, grabbing the LMG and dropping to the floor. He turned off the safety, and held himself absolutely still, if the small movement breathing caused would not count. He had almost packed his backpack too. The small break to take a bite of the chocolate bar could have been a fatal mistake if the shot had been fired closer... well, that might be a little exaggeration. Checking his gas mask was tightly on his face, he continued to stay on the floor. "After gunshots, stay down for minimum of 5 minutes." That had been his guideline, and would serve him today as well. And not much longer, he heard an explosion ringing inside the building. "'Twas close..." Edward gasped, and waited more. Not too much later, an axe hit the door. Intruder.
"State the code of the British government!" He yelled through his mask. It seemed to have no effect, as whoever it was kept on hacking the door down. "Your final chance! State the code!" Edward yelled, aiming his LMG at the spot where the torso of the intruder would probably be. After one more hit to the door, it broke down. "Step 1: Shoot first!" rang in Edward's mind as he opened fire towards the figure. The recoil of the gun was still more than what he was used to, but he managed to keep the bullets on target. Tearing through the already wounded man, Edward stopped firing as about 40 rounds had left the barrel, letting the man collapse down. "Now if that was not an overkill..." Edward muttered, and crawled a little towards the man, who had fallen torso first on the shreds of the door and the makeshift barricade. His head seemed to be still intact. Well, as intact as it had been before the bullet storm, as there were no bullet holes on it at the very least. "That guy won't move an inch in a good while." Edward spoke to himself, and slowly backed away. After having wasted over half of his remaining ammunition, he would need more soon. It was time to go. Setting the safety back on, he started packing the rest of his items, but with very high caution. Anything would draw his attention, even a snowflake drifting in from a broken window.
