Sample text:

Laying on the floor, Ki-moon looked Guleed straight back into his eyes, and instinctively he took his rifle. He pulled a heavy metal lever from front to back. Balancing with his left hand on the deck, Ki-moon stretched his right arm with the weapon in it. As he aimed it, Guleed grinned as he noticed Ki-moon’s shivering aim, way too high above his head. Then – just before Gulled could reach for his rifle – Ki-moon pulled the trigger.

A soft rumbling sound followed when the airburst grenade left the barrel of Ki-moon’s gun. In an instant, he threw his weapon down on the floor and dropped down himself next to it, making himself as small as possible.

In a fraction of a second, the grenade had arrived over Guleed’s head and exploded midair with a deafening thunder. Hundreds of small pieces of shrapnel were blown in every direction. Ki-moon, with his head facing down to the deck, heard dozens of pieces impacting on the metal deck only a few feet away from him. After a few seconds, there was complete silence again, and Ki-moon dared to look up. The floor in front of him was littered with small pieces of metal. A thin layer of smoke concealed Guleed’s condition.

He shuddered his head a couple of times before climbing back onto his feet. Through the smoke, he stumbled a few steps forward where he found Guleed’s body, lifeless on the floor, his clothes pierced with dozens of small holes.
