Isn’t it strange how so few words can change everything?

As soon as the man with the megaphone said he was sorry, George knew he wasn't getting off the island. There had always been that possibility, but having it said to him, by someone else, was completely different to thinking it. Having his kills being brought into perspective like this made him feel worse than he'd ever felt. It made him feel like a monster.

George barely noticed the other STAR member aim his rifle at him. He barely noticed the other students rushing to the boats. He just stood there, and he could only think "If only I'd known. If only I'd known there was another way off of here. If only I'd stopped to think about what I was doing, Gloria, Dustin and Tim would still be alive. They'd be on the boat with me, and we'd be going back home."

Even as the stream of students hurrying to the boat started to decrease and stop, and the boat started heading off, George still stood there, watching the boat disappear into the horizon. His only means of escape, gone. Because he just couldn't go on killing, in hopes of leaving. Each time he had, he just felt worse and worse about it all.

Eventually, George managed to will himself to move. He turned, and went back the way he came from.
