Here’s the next episode of Bugout! from my story blog.

Rosie jerked awake, the sound of gunfire jarring her. Multiple shots, sounding like they were coming from the parking lot. She pulled her cellphone out of her purse and turned on the short range app. Nothing. Jeb was starting to stir. She buzzed the nurse.
The nurse rushed in as Jeb woke up. “What happened?” she asked, a look of terror on her face.
“Jeb waking up. That gunshot I hear?”
“Yes, in the parking lot. The army is down there, though, and they have more help in town. Stay away from the windows.”
“Doctor said want to talk to Jeb when he wake.”
“I’ll let him know, Rosie. Thanks.” the nurse said, rushing out.
There were several more shots, this time sounding closer, and then some yelling in Arabic.
“What’s going on, honey?” Jeb said softly. “I thought I heard gunfire.”
“Bad guys in parking lot, but army here.”
