The two men stood in the crisp, evening mountain air The woodland that surrounded them on all sides was dense and deep “So…” the first man turned to the other, straightening up his stab-proof vest “Where do we go from here” The other police officer clicked his radio off, and turned to his counterpart “I think it’s a good idea to turn off our radios, this guy is probably a little skittish after all he’s been through” The Colorado mountains stood...[Read More]
