C… I can't— I'm gonna fall—



C: Oh shi— Hey! Hey, I got you, I've got you. HEY EVERYONE! WE'RE STOPPING HERE.


B: We have to k-keep moving C, it's not safe here.


C: No, you need to drink water. Does anyone have any water? Dammit someone get me water!

Hang on B, we're almost there.


B: Why are we doing this, C?


C: You know why.


B: …I miss him.


C:


B: You can't just ignore our history, C.


C: Like hell I can. Watch me.


B: Being angry isn't going to help anyone.


C: Then what am I supposed to be? Huh? Perfectly fine with what he did to us? Just waltz back into Base Alpha like, "Oh yeah I don't have any free will, but it's fine I'm sure he'll give it back eventually." Yeah sounds fucking great to me B.


B: We're killing ourselves by walking away like this.


C: What, you think we should have stayed? Let him fuck with us more? Let me remind you who left first, you. Not me. I followed you.


B: You say that like you wanted to stay.


C: Of course I-



Here… Drink this.


B: Thank you.

Remind me again where we are heading?


C: We're going to Level 61. My assistant is the leader of the outpost there. I've already radioed ahead.


B: The grass here… it's soft.


C: Yeah, I guess so.


B: Come sit, C.


C: …we need to keep moving.


B: C… wait- do you hear that?


C: Shouting… what the fuck is going on?

Hey! Hey, where the fuck are you all going? You're like half our squad!


Their names are irrelevant: We're leaving, this trip isn't worth all of our lives. We're going to Base Beta.


C: The fuck? You're going back to them??


B: Let them go, C.


Nobody matters: Yeah, and you won't be stopping us just because of some grudge you have.


C: It's not some fucking grudge, you weren't there how the fuck would you know?


Doesn't matter: I'm not spending any more lives on your stupid vendetta.


C: You know what? Fuck you, coward.


Nobody cares about the lives lost: You wanna say that to my face? "C"? At least Stretch was brave enough to tell us his name! I don't even know you!


C: He would backstab you in a second given the fucking chance. Like you know him any better?


Who cares: Whatever, we're leaving.


C:

…Like hell you are.


CRACK


B: Oh my god— what did you do??


CRACK


B: C stop it!!


CRACK


B: ANDREW STOP IT, STOP, STOP IT!

Sobbing.


C: …Like I was saying. Nobody is leaving, and nobody is going back to him unless you plan on telling me first.

Sniff

We leave at dawn. Get some rest.
