Aveira listened to the mechanical clicking of the gun as he loaded it. She really had no idea what he was doing. There was something about guns that she just couldn't understand. Perhaps it was because they made killing so impersonal? So quick? She didn't enjoy quick deaths.

He put up a target. "Ready?"

She nodded and waited for him to get out of the way. When she heard his footsteps beside her, she squeezed off three shots very quickly, before realizing guns were not even close to bows. All of her shots were too high. She adjusted her aim and emptied the magazine. Most of her shots were at least within the circle. She clearly wasn't the best shot, but she was a little better than some beginners and certainly better than any blind person had the right to be.

"The bullets don't arc quite like they do on a bow. Only a little bit. But that was decent." Matthew looked at the pattern. "Would you like to try again?"

Aveira nodded. "Do you have any moving targets? Those are easier for me to see. I can barely sense the shape of the paper," she explained. "It doesn't give off any heart or scent or anything for me to track."

He nodded. "In another room." He pointed to a door that had looked like it led to a closet. "I have a tactical range. The range was the only part I didn't have to heavily renovate. They wanted everyone to be able to shoot well." He went to open the door, grabbing a special holster as he did so.

Following him curiously, she let her senses sweep the room. "Do you practice here often?" she asked.

"Yes," he smiled. "Stand back." The room seemed almost like a house. The walls were bare and white, small holes being their only feature. There was also a space above the walls. The only things that touched the ceiling were columns for support. There were door frames, window frames, tables, and other things. The room they were in had a wooden door and a long window frame with no window. Some frames had a window or door, but some didn't. It was sort of like a house, but without any detail. Matthew loaded his pistol and reached for a switch on the wall. Above the switch was what looked like an electronic scoreboard. After he flipped it he put the pistol in his special holster. Doors opening and closing could be heard, as well as windows. In some cases they could be seen. "The range is randomizing itself. In about a minute, targets will pop up. I have to go through and 'kill' them all. My holster will record the time between me pulling my gun out, and me putting it back. Some targets move after they get up, some don't. Some even have a paintball gun and can shoot back if I don't kill them quickly enough."

Giggling, Aveira held onto the pistol she'd kept from the other room. "This was a little bit more than I'd anticipated, but I suppose it'll work. In fact, this could be good practice for you. You'll have to keep me alive, too." That would be a useful skill if he ever took a job that involved protection someone else. "I wonder how long you'll be able to keep me 'alive'," she mused.

He grabbed a pair of safety glasses, and handed her one. "The range is meant for one person, so please don't shoot me. It's setting a path for us right now. When it's done, we go through. The targets are roughly man-shaped." A timer went off and the door for the room they were in went off. Matthew drew his gun and stepped through.

She grabbed the safety glasses and raised an eyebrow at him before tapping her blindfold and putting them back down. Eye safety wasn't exactly big on her list of important things. She made sure the gun's safety was off and then followed him through, making sure to keep him in her mind at all times. She didn't want to accidentally shoot him.

He walked through the door and drew his gun as he glanced around. He quickly pointed through a window and fired, hitting a metal man-sized target that had popped up. He looked around and saw no more targets in the room. He began to walk through an open door, ignoring the closed ones.

Aveira followed him closely. Sensing movement, she turned and fired, hitting a target right in the head. Unfortunately, the target she hit was in the shape of a little girl. Aveira didn't notice. She couldn't sense intent from a metal and paper construct and therefore couldn't be expected to discriminate between targets. Besides, it was a great shot.

In some countries children were given weapons and were forced to fire upon the enemy of their home country. The thought behind it is that the enemy will hesitate to shoot a child. Not everyone would. That was one hell of a shot. Matthew hit one that was behind an overturned table, then moved on to the next room. This room seemed to have them surrounded by a half dozen metal human sized targets. Matthew opened fire just before the paintballs started shooting.

Sensing a paintball headed for her, Aveira ducked and rolled. rising up onto one knee, she took three shots at three different targets. The first one missed completely, the second one hit in a nonlethal area, but the third went right through the throat of her target. She used three more bullets to take out the targets she had previously missed. She'd used seven bullets in all and had no idea how many more she had left. Probably none.

Matthew had taken down his targets. After being shot, the targets would lower or fold back. In any case, they'd move out of the way. The two doors in this room were both closed, but one had a light above it that was on. Matthew kicked in the door with the light above it, and moved on. This went on for another ten minutes. Matthew had to reload several times.

Aveira discovered happily that she had at least another seven rounds. Apparently she didn't know anything about modern pistols. She didn't know how to reload and had no extra magazines with her, so when she was out, she stayed out. Fortunately, the majority of her shots were hits, if not kills. By the time they exited the room, she was pleased with herself.

"I can change the difficulty from my computer, by the way." He smiled again. "And there you have it. That's probably the main way I train. Now I'd like a shower." He put away his weapons and related gear.

Aveira grinned as she put her gun back where it went. "Can I help?" she asked innocently.

"And how would you do that?" He knew the answer, but asked anyway.

She just grinned in response and grabbed his hands. "Come on. Show me your shower," she said while giggling.

He walked her to the bathroom connected to his room. It was a large master bathroom. Two sinks, a shower, a large bath tub that resembled a hot tub.

Aveira ran her hands along the tub. It was very nice with jacuzzi jets. "Hmmm..." She grinned at him lasciviously. "Showers are so mainstream," she teased.

"That does seem like a good idea." Matthew put his hand around her waist.

Aveira closed her eyes and leaned back against him. She decided she enjoyed having a boyfriend.
