| Taking the whiskey, made him feel reckless.
He had posted on the roof top observation all night.
Nothing of importance had happened.
Some kids had set an abandoned car on fire.
The mansard roof offered perfect cover, behind it.
The streets were filling with working class as the sun rose.
His shift was nearly over. . He painted a target.
It was a long range.
He needed conformation from a passing helicopter.
The helicopter gunman fired his machine gun, but the target
Komachiya took steady aim.
Precision work of the right hand demanded his full attention.
The whiskey had given his arm a tremble.
He fired and struck the opposing sniper in the shoulder.
He fell back onto his lawn chair.
Protection of the workers was complete.
Komachiya took another draught of his flask.
This was the People's New Space Program.
They would control the Moon.
From this launching point every nation of the world
would be under China's missal sites.
The Chinese Space Shuttle would be an important
link in this acquisition.
Nothing would stand in their way.
China is greater and more determined than anyone
or any other country.
Komachiya bowed to his relief as the new sniper took the guard.
Komachiya went to the nearest restaurant and had
a Big Mac meal.
