Out of nowhere, tears well up in my eyes. Then I feel the tears burst over and run down my cheeks. "You're going to be okay," he says. "You're going to be okay." Then one of them is there. "What happened?" he asks. Jack jumps up and punches him right in the jaw, and he falls to the ground beside me. "You shot me, you son of a bitch," I hear myself say. "You shot me." And then the silence opens like a mouth and swallows me up. "You shot me," I say again. He lays there looking at me.
