100-Word Challenge, Day 128

Caleb yelled and pulled the trigger again and again until the magazine was empty. The bullets bounced around the room until they hit something soft enough to absorb their energy. The peal of distant bells assaulted Evan’s hearing almost as thoroughly as the crash of gunfire, but the dared not move lest whatever miracle was saving him would be broken.
