The story begins in darkness near dawn. The city of Dublin, Ireland is undergoing a battle between Republicans and Free Staters. It is the Civil War. The night is silent except for the occasional machines guns and rifles
In war, even the slightest choices, like choosing to light a cigarette, take on big significance as they can lead to death. The sniper here takes the risk, and is lucky not to get killed
An enemy armored car comes down the street and the sniper wishes to fire at it, but he knows his gun will not be able to damage “the gray monster.”
An old woman appears on the street and talks to the man in the car, then points up at the Republican sniper’s position. The man gets out of the top of the car, ready to shoot, but the sniper shoots first, killing the man. The woman tries to run away, but the sniper fires at her and falls into the gutter, screaming.
The enemy sniper shoots the sniper. The sniper drops his rifle, He can’t pick up the rifle because “his forearm was dead.” He exclaims that he is hit as blood starts oozing through the sleeve of his shirt, but he does not feel pain, just feels numb.
His plan had succeeded. The other sniper, seeing the cap and rifle fall, thought that he had killed his man. The Republican sniper smiled and shoot the enemy sniper.
