Screams.

Nate looked up from his knees. Looked out the doorway. More screams. Looked back down.

They were still doing it. They were doing it right then, right down the hallway. He could go, try to intervene, try to stop them. He wanted to do some good, after all.

He didn’t move. Kept his eyes shut, head down. He couldn’t stop hearing the screams, couldn’t shield his ears. He couldn’t move.

If he went, if he tried to stop it, he wouldn’t do anything. They wouldn’t listen, no-one wanted to. They wouldn’t stop, no-one wanted to. They might even try to kill him, they all wanted to.

It didn’t matter what he did. He was dead, he knew he was dead, he was as dead as Caedyn and Nancy and Alvaro and Ben and everyone else. He thought he was ready for it, but then when he came close to it, when he’d almost been shot three times, he’d been so scared. He didn’t want to die, he wasn’t ready to die, but he was already dead.

He pressed his head down harder, as the massacre continued. There was nothing he could do to stop it, nothing he could do to help. He couldn’t help anyone, couldn’t help himself. He couldn’t do any good, he wasn’t fooling anybody. He’d lied to Clarice, plain and simple. He was just a miserable dead liar who couldn’t put his money where his mouth was to save his life, or anyone else’s.

Worthless.

That’s what he was. He hadn’t been killed yet when everyone else had, and there was absolutely no reason for it. That person dying down the hallway right at that moment deserved to live more than he did; for all Nate knew he might’ve at least been trying, doing something more than curling up in a ball and crying to himself. The person killing them deserved it more too. Even if what they were doing was horrible, was murder, they deserved to be alive when he didn’t, because at least they were actually trying.

The screams had stopped.

He wasn’t sure when, but the screams had been replaced with a silence that was somehow worse.

It was over.

He didn’t move. Not yet.

He was worthless.
