He stood at the door, his back to me.
I stood behind him.
My hand was shaking as I held it out, standing perfectly still waiting for the right moment.
I grasped the trigger and pulled slightly, just barely.
It was hard to stand so still.
Not make a sound.
Every nerve in my body twitched.
Mere seconds seemed like minutes.
I felt sure he heard me.
Sure he would turn around at any moment.
My heart beat faster.
All of a sudden there was nothing but noise.
Loud, sharp, piercing.
I pulled the trigger.
Water went everywhere but he stopped barking.
