Yelling like a maniac, Bomber hit me with the side of the cannon. Weak as I was, the blow to my slashed arm caused my grip to slacken. I dropped the knife.
Quick as thought, Bomber turned around, murder in his eyes. Even though he was finally, *finally* bleeding from his wounds, he didn't hesitate. Using his normal arm, he punched me in the gut again.
It was too much. I simply fell down to my knees, unable to move. Bomber put his cannon to my head, and all I could see was the barrel of the massive gun.
"Do you know what is going to happen now, rat?" He said, his voice suddenly very, very quiet.
"I am going to shoot you with this gun of mine. And you are going to die a messy death."
"And once I've killed you, I'm going to kill your friends and fellow Argus scum. None of you are escaping this place alive." The gun began warming up, making a buzzing sound as it prepared a shot.
"And afterward, I'm going to find that little girl, and I am going to put this gun of mine to my head. And them, I'm going to blow her brains off. All because of you."
I didn't have anything more to give. I was spent, I was too hurt to walk, much less bring a behemoth like him down. I was broken.
But when he said those last few words, something began burning inside me. A fire welled up inside my gut, right where bomber had hit me.
And a voice in my head said a single word: "No."
This monster wasn't going to hurt Liz. He would never be in the same room as her, much less manage to lay a finger on her. Even if I had to die, he wouldn't touch that quiet, nice little girl.
Bomber spoke again. "Go to hell, rat."
My next motion was a blur. I stood up, dashed forward until I was right under Bomber's chin, and grabbed his cannon arm. He was much, much stronger than me, but I caught him by surprise, and he didn't have time to resist as I twisted his arm until the cannon was pointing at his face.
