A loud “BANG!” added to the intensity of the moment as Matt jumped up from his chair and it fell to the concrete floor. Maverick was still partially under the desk as he continued to growl, his fur on end. He slowly appeared from the shadow of the desk to meet Matt in a tight heel position. He nudged Matt’s dropped hand with his snout, as the other was clenched tightly in a fist over his mouth. Matt’s gaze hasn’t moved from the screen, as the vile creature was still visible.
