Today’s prompt: Write anything that uses the words “Vicious gunfire”

  1. “People who observe or study battles in recent history will often comment on the vicious gunfire. By ‘vicious gunfire’, they often mean ‘a lot of shooting’. But for the people who’ve been in the thick of these battles, the gunfire is anything but vicious. You see, observers hear the sounds of the guns, the tanks, the cannons. They hear the explosive force of gunpowder ignited. What they don’t hear is what we, the grunts, hear.

    We hear the whispering of the bullets. Yes, they whisper. Bullets snap and crack when they pass high above you or far to your sides. But when the enemy has seen you, sighted in on you with their rifle, pulled the trigger, and just barely miss, those bullets pass you by with a soft hiss. It’s the sound of the miniature sonic boomlet that a travelling bullet leaves in its wake, audible only to those within arm’s reach.

    You can call it vicious gunfire if you like. As for me, I call it a ghastly whispering, the soft brushing against you of Death’s jet-black robe before he takes you in his claws.”
