Becker grabbed Matt and slammed him against the lockers.
“Dammit, Matt! How many times have we had this conversation? You almost got yourself killed!”
Becker’s eyes burned with fury, frustration, and fear.
“I’m the team leader. It’s my job to go first,” Matt retaliated, trying to stay calm.
“It’s my job to do the dangerous stuff. Not yours.”
Matt stared back, angry and bewildered. “So you expect me to just stand there and watch you get killed instead?”
Matt’s words died on his lips.
Becker turned and stormed out, leaving Matt to wonder what the hell had just happened.
