"You’re left-handed and I’m right-handed, so, you know which hand goes for my pistol," said. "Why would I think you have a pistol? "In Texas everybody’s got a pistol." "Even so, why would you go for it? "Why not? Who’s to say what’s going to happen? People kill people in pool halls for not very big reasons. Don’t you think? I was surprised at how indifferently he spoke of the deaths of my father and Henry’s son. I could feel a pressure begin at my temples. "Watch this," he said, and smooth as a jazz riff filled both his hands with guns. He gave me a breath or two to grasp my situation. My heart was beating so hard I was certain that he could tell. "Are you scared? "Yes." "Because a man with pistols is a dangerous man? "Yes." "Get over being scared, Little Sister. You’re going to be the one with pistols from now on." Albert Sun Man Ramirez was slender, almost delicate, with flawless light brown skin any woman would sell her soul for--gleaming ducktail haircut, narrow shoulders, very fast hands. Maybe twenty-two. High forehead, straight narrow nose, girl-pretty mouth. Who would have thought by looking at him that he was an efficient and remorseless killer? The Marine Corps gave him medals. "Marines like Albert. War okay for him, except lose leg" Henry said. Albert was angered by what happened to Henry and me, and the fierce loyalty that he felt toward his friends and the friends of his family was enough to bring him out to the homestead weekly for over six months. He was the second of my teachers. He also taught Henry. He taught us everything there was to know about pistols. "With pistols you have to see it before it starts," Albert told me in that excitable way he had of saying and doing everything. "Like chess, Little Sister. He does that, you do this. Look everywhere at everything. When you’re facing several men with weapons, always shoot first. Especially shoot first if they think you won’t. Shoot the ones who look fast, then the others, and count your shots. Drop empty pistols, grab loaded ones, and when you start, don’t stop until you’ve killed everything that moves. Don’t stop for anything. And always, always know where you’re going when it’s over, and go there. Be on your way out the door while the hot cartridges are still bouncing around." "I’m not going to go around killing people," I explained to Albert. ‘that’s what you say, Little Sister. That’s what you say."
