Notes: For primeval100: challenge 463: Smoke and Mirrors
Matt felt Becker’s hand on his arm and paused; it was the only thing stopping him from wringing the neck of the idiotic teenager. The kid had wandered in while everyone was busy and was really pissing Matt off.
“Man, that is so cool! You can’t even see the mirrors or projectors-” The kid made a beeline for the sedated creature, seemingly oblivious to the fact that it – and the soldiers’ guns – weren’t fake.
Becker finally snapped. “It’s not some special effect, you moron! It’s real,” he said, then raised his shotgun, “and so is this. Now fuck off.”
The kid fled.
