"...Jacob?"

And then just like that, everything started to fall apart. Jacob ran. Sarah ran. Adrian ran. Everyone ran.
And then just like that, every speaker switched on. Nineteen dead. Reika dead. Paige dead.
The reporter. Amber dead. Not possible. Not possible.
The leader. Reiko killed. Not possible. Not possible

Ben.
I think we need to have a change of plan.

What do you suggest?
We need to find a better gun.
No. Not going to play.
They're playing. You can't be a hero here. Not anymore. Who are you going to lead?
They've left you.

No. I can do this. I know we can get off.
How? Does it matter anymore?

"Stop acting like a motherfucking hero, because you ain't one."

I'm a hero now?
You thought you were going to be one.
I can't kill people.
If you want people to live, you have to kill. You have to learn when to hold your hand and when to fold.
...I think Reiko knew that. Is that why she's doing it?
Maybe. Remember what you said? Everyone could be a player. You were wrong. Everyone is playing, whether they want to or not. It's a game. A sick game.
A game. I don't want to play.
You're already playing. Listen harder. Now, let's get out of here before you get bankrupt.

And then Ben opened his eyes.

"I'm leaving."

Purposefully, he picked up his rucksack and buckled himself in. Giving one final look at Paige, he gave a nod. Maybe he'd see her soon. But not too soon. One day. Opening up the door, he stumbled out onto the land, and started to walk forward, past DK. Without missing a beat, he muttered. "I don't know where I'm going, and I don't have much of a plan. Follow or split. Your choice. I'll see you at the after party either way." Touching his finger to his forehead in a salute, he started to hike.

Fold.
