55 Flash Fiction Friday #51: Chapter 43 - Khoj


Some stories are the same in any language.
Clear of the murderous gang, Arjun stopped the lorry and set about repairing the shredded tire. Straining against the torque of the lugnuts, he regarded her standing watchful, the sepoy's rifle locked and loaded.
"Where did you learn to shoot like that?"
"I've learned what I've needed", she answered cryptically, "From whoever could teach it."

Notes:
khoj: discovery
