- My armor slowed down the bullet, but the impact knocked me down the slope. It hurt like hell, as if someone had shoved a red-hot hook right through my lower back.
- If I hadn’t been in the middle of a fistfight with Mickey, my armor’s shielding might have deflected the shot. As it was, I had nothing but the armor plating itself between me and the bullet, and that proved not to be enough.
- Fortunately, my armor hadn’t stopped working. It automatically sealed the hole the bullet had made, keeping me from bleeding out, and injected me with a flood of biofoam, which brought the agony down from blinding to almost tolerable.
