The pistol was cocked, ready to go. “Your turn” she said, as my hands trembled in fear. Why was I here? Who was she? So many questions left without an answer. I swallowed, breaking the piercing silence. She laughed. “First time playing?” she asked smugly, already knowing the answer. I stayed quiet. I could barely hold it. A beautiful 1873 Frisco Revolver, 6 chambers, yet somehow, that didn’t lighten my mood. I wrapped my hand around the Pearl style grip hoping for the best. It felt cool in my hands. I looked at her, she smirked.
That was the last thing I saw before I shut my eyes. I now had the pistol tightly griped in both hands. I slowly pressed the gun to my lips. The cold metal made me quiver. So many thoughts had raced through my head. They weren’t stopping, everything was spinning, I couldn’t tell up from down, I pulled the trigger.
She took the gun from my hands, as she congratulated me. She grabbed the gun, cocked it, and pulled the trigger, nothing. "Your turn again” she whispered.

Very unnerving situation. I am also wondering how she got to be there in the first place.

I've always liked to write, call it a hidden passion. I just want to be better, and get some feedback from people who can't put a face to the writer. Anything and everything helps.
