Lisa had only known Harz for three weeks, but in that short amount of time they had become good battle buddies. So, to see him helplessly laying there, still alive, and under imminent threat of being shot, Lisa could not contain herself. Besides, it was in a Marines nature to never leave anyone behind.

“Cover me Donavan!” Lisa shouted.

Her words seemed to break the blank, shocked stare on Donavan’s face, “What are you going to do?”

“I am going to go get Harz, but we need to take out the shooter that’s aiming at us.” Lisa replied over the sounds of gunfire. She then scooted closer to the vehicles corner once more. “I am going to get the shooter’s attention on me, and I want you to shoot over the JLVT roof to finish him off.”

“What!” Donavan shouted. “I have only ever shot at targets before. I can’t kill a person.”

Lisa scoffed, “That’s why we were trained to be out here in the first-place you idiot! Now do as you are told!”

Donavan shuddered, “Ehh?”
