Peter had just changed the canister of his gasmask before he saw the winged beast that he had been looking for. Many called them demons, they were nothing like the normal creatures that roamed the streets, and tunnels of Charon. Peter had dealed with these Demons before when he was younger, he had even survived being dropped from the sky by one of these winged beasts. These Demons would hide on rooftops waiting for their next prey to come along, from experience Peter knew that these Demons hunted Watchers and Humans that were brave or foolish enough to venture to the surface. As he carefully placed the empty canister on the ground to avoid making a sound, the Demon landed on a rooftop on the other side of the street. He wasn't sure if this Demon had just seen a Watcher or a Human but it had definitely seen something, and it was waiting for a moment to strike.
Peter knew that he did not have much time before the Demon would sweep down and kill whatever it was that had gotten his interest. He knew how it felt to be grabbed by one of these winged beasts, you do not see or hear them coming. It sweeps down and grabs you with its claws before flying high up in to the air, and before you can even react it drops you from the sky waiting till it hears all your bones snap as you hit the ground below. It was horrible, he wouldn't even wish that upon his enemies. Peter placed his sniper rifle on the edge of the building. He had taken position on top of this old post office 10 minutes ago hoping that the Demon would show its ugly face.
He looked through the scope of his sniper rifle and carefully calculated the distance to the Demon. After he had pointed the scope at the head of this winged beast he carefully squeezed the trigger. A loud shot could be heared around the city before Demon fell over the edge of the building and fell down on to the ground below. How ironic, Peter wasn't sure if he had killed this winged beast but whoever it was that the Demon had his eyes on had surely seen it now. He switched his sniper rifle to automatic and aimed down at the spot where the Demon had hit the ground, just to be sure.
