Give Him Back

Give him back now.

I don't know how you did it.

I don't care, to be honest.

Give him back.

He's My Brother

King is, at any rate.

He will not like me doing this, but I suggest he cope.

Chelsea, Alice, whatever you wish to call yourself--do you remember what it was like, watching Penny suffer?  Don't you remember that you would give anything to help her?

I do not care what it will do to the world.

I just want to be able to look into his eyes and see that he is free of the demon that haunts him.

I want to look at him and just see him, not the pain it will bring.

I know you may have reservations, but as questionable as Ace's motives may be, he has a valid point:  these monsters are already unstoppable, already making countless lives worse.  What's one more, if King can be free of pain?  Just for a little bit?

Bad Day

I almost collapsed today.

I just got overwhelmed with it, you know? Pounding in my head.

It wants out. It wants out so bad.

I don't know what to do, really. The others keep telling me that I should get it out, but I don't know. I don't think it should be free. I just think it should be locked away forever.

Knight tells me it's for my own good. I think he's the only one who means it some days, and I know Ten'll give me flak for this, but I know she's thinking of revenge before she thinks of helping me. Even if she wants to, she'd rather hurt Penny than help me.

I guess I should talk about myself? I don't know though. If you knew about me, wouldn't that just be playing to your sympathies? Maybe it's better if you girls don't think of me as a person. Because yeah, part of me wants...wants this signal just to cut out. To not have to listen, to see what I see every day, every hour.

But I really don't know if I want other people to suffer just because I can't take the pain myself.

I Know You Are Up To Something

You're evading us so far.  It will not last forever, I assure you.

We will figure out whatever you are doing.  You have to find the Smiling Man.  You have to try to help his victims.  You cannot not fall into our trap.

It would be easier if you just stopped your games and sat down with us to talk like reasonable people.

We know you have split up.  We know there are two teams.  We know which victim you are trying to save.

This will not work.  We will find you.
