"We tried to be better, but we aren't. I don't think anyone could last more than a week here if they weren't willing to do bad things." - Alba Reyes

Cause what you see isn't always the truth

Alba remained frozen as Brendan turned to face her. He was no longer smiling like he was earlier. It looked like the gravity of his crime was weighing down on him, and he was now certain of how much of a line he had crossed with her. He was suggesting he go away and find Ty on his own, leaving Alba alone. Alba grimaced as Brendan suggested that.

Alba closed her eyes, keeping the rifle on him. So he didn't want to die. That much was clear. But now he wanted to go off on his own again. That wasn't cool. She had finally found her friend again, and now he wanted to leave her to wallow in self-pity. With everything that had happened here, with people getting lost and promises being broken, Alba was getting sick of it. The terrorists already got her to kill someone, and now they wanted her to kill her friend or send him to someone who may kill him.

The pained expression in Alba's face disappeared. She opened her eyes and looked Brendan dead in his.

"No."

Alba lowered the rifle. Her face turned serious.

"I'm not letting you run off on your own. You don't get to run away from this."

Alba stepped closer to Brendan, putting less than a few inches between them.

"Do you want to know why?"
