Shayla, codename Shark, has just met Cobra in the middle of a forest clearing...
Slightly modified punctuation
Cobra led them back the way he'd come. Shayla noticed that he was always careful to keep to one side of a line between her and the bushes cloaking the base of a tree on the edge of the clearing. Not complete amateurs then, good.
As they reached cover, Shayla stopped. "You may as well join us," she said to the bushes. "If I wished you harm, your weapon would be of little help."
Cobra grinned. "C'mon, Tiger," he called, "they said she was good."
