Mason lurched forward and made a grab at Riece’s shoulders, trying to steady him. He almost succeeded in preventing Riece from tramping down hard with his foot. Water splashed, and something scrambled out from under some nearby brush.
The man swung in their direction, and the kid lifted a spotting scope. “Shit,” Mason spat.
Riece swung toward him, which allowed Mason to get both arms around Riece’s waist and yank backward. Two bolts whizzed by their heads and pierced the embankment behind them. Mason snatched Riece’s camera and shoved it back into its bag, then ripped the bolts from the earth. Spinning Riece around, he gave him a shove back the way they’d come.
“We have to cross,” Riece said.
“Not here. We have to deal with them first.”
“Keep moving.” Mason pushed Riece ahead of him until they were almost back where they’d come down to the river. He held Riece to the embankment and put his finger to his lips. Mason took stock of what he had. It wasn’t much. A camera flash and a coil of rope.
And two crossbow bolts.
