The cold winter air rushed hard against my face and a cool chill ran down my spine. The light snow drifted down from the heavens, entering and exiting from view of the little light that trickled into the dark, deserted alley like so many falling stars suddenly gaining brilliance then wandering back into black oblivion.

Three gunshots echoed off the building walls, three flashes of light illuminated the back alley. I fell to my knees; my hand clasped my wounded chest. Wheezing and coughing up blood, my muscles gave out and I fell into the frosty, welcoming snow and strayed from all thoughts and consciousness.
