Did Lily's reasons matter?

Not really. Not enough to change what Jae thought of her. She looked like a little kid playing solider, with her hair haphazardly sticking out from under that helmet and the oversized sword. The bloodstain on her dress ruined the image, brought it back to reality, and Jae realized that it was most likely Lizzie's blood. That was the only name that Lily's had been announced alongside.

But Lizzie Luz hadn't been his friend. And Lily was right - she wasn't the one who had torn Asha open and left her to die. She wasn't Isabel.

So why did he hate her so much?

Because she was a coward? Because she hid behind a killer? Would it have been any different if it had been someone else she was tagging along with, or if the people Jae cared about hadn't gotten into the line of fire?

Maybe. It didn't matter. Jae was sick of whys and people demanding explanations, because everyone's reasons boiled down to the same damn thing: because they were here. Because this was the choice they had been given and whether they killed themselves or killed others or just sat in one place and waited to die, it all felt like letting the people behind the cameras win.

"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
