FAKE Double Drabble: Teamwork

Title: Teamwork
Fandom: FAKE
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Dee, Ryo, Others.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 147: Gesture at drabble_weekly.
Spoilers/Setting: During the manga.
Summary: Cops know how to communicate without words.
Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
A/N: Double drabble.

Cops, like soldiers, have their own language for situations like this; radios are all very well, but the way they crackle and squawk makes stealth impossible.

Times like this, it’s best not to let the bad guys get a bead on your location; distract them, get them aiming where they think you are rather than your actual position, and there’s a better chance of getting the drop on them without getting yourself or one of your colleagues filled with bullet holes. Vests provide a degree of protection, but they only cover so much; stray bullets and ricochets can hit anywhere.

So they communicate via hand gestures, indicating what they can see, which way each of them should go, what action to take: circle left, hold your position, two shooters, keep low… It’s amazing how much can be conveyed without a single word being spoken. Reading and understanding those gestures is a skill drummed into every police cadet during training; it can mean the difference between life and death in a dangerous situation.

Dee catches Ryo’s eyes, gestures, and Ryo nods. They move in unison, rolling out of cover, opening fire, hitting their targets…

“No fair!” yells Bikky. Another paintballing loss.

The End
