"Arcade — have you ever fired a gun before?"

"What? Me? Of course I have."

"You're the first person I've seen using energy weapons, is all." Gunnar found some pinyon nuts in a backpack pocket. "Do the Followers use a lot of energy weapons?"

"Uh huh. You're a terrible liar."

"Who says I'm lying? I'd like to see you try using one of those, at night, against enemies you can't see."

"Okay, you're not lying. You're just a lousy shot." Gunnar smiled, to show no harm meant.
