It's interesting what stands out and gives pause during a read. In this case it's the Desert Eagle. I am certain you know what one is having learned in person or read about one. When that phrase is uttered, it's generally the most well known caliber that made this hand gun famous: the 50. Sooooo....when a "gunshot" goes off and she runs to investigate, I stopped reading and said, uh, what? Didn't he just write Desert Eagle? It would not have been a simple gun shot as uttered by a .38 pistol or a 9mm. This is a .50, you know, just short of a cannon, which the blast of would make someone say wtf was that!?!?! Not only would Ella be running to check, but the whole condo building would be running to check, especially the next door neighbors, you know, the ones on the other side of the closet. Maybe these are concrete walls, some condos have those.
