"Well," says Sargon. "You fucked it up some, but she's still more rescued than she would've been if you hadn't heard anything."

"I guess. I just--I didn't have to hurt her.

What do I do now?"

Permalink

Hug.

"We get off this planet as soon as possible. And - I'll talk to Tina, if she'll let me."

Permalink

"Okay.

I don't deserve you guys."

Permalink

"Yeah, well, we love you anyway." Hug. "If only perfect people had friends, it'd be a hell of a lonely 'verse."

Permalink

"Heh. That's true, I guess."

Permalink

"Anwar, get us off this rock."

He nods. He hugs Erika some more. He leaves.

Permalink

She sits for a little while longer and then puts her coat back on.

Permalink

Sargon lets go so she can do that, then hugs her again.

Permalink

She relaxes slightly but noticeably once it's back on. Hugs.

Permalink

Yeah. Those.

"Anyway," he says after a while, "if you don't deserve me I don't deserve you either. I probably would've done the same damn thing."

Permalink

 

"Really? But you're so..."

Permalink

"I'm so what?"

Permalink

"You're a thane."

Permalink

"I'm not perfect either, Erika. And I've - I maybe shouldn't say what I've heard about him exactly, but she mentioned an 'Obie' once in a context that left me real tempted to murder him."

Permalink

"Oh.

People talk about how--revenge is supposed to feel hollow once you've actually had it--but if it hadn't hurt Tina I'd be feeling pretty damn good about it right now. I have no idea if that means I'm abnormal somehow or if the people who say that are just blowing smoke out of their asses."

Permalink

"All kinds of things feel good that probably shouldn't."

Permalink

Nod. Hug. "I just hate them so much. It felt like I've been thirsty all this time and just had my first drink of water in--in a long time."

Permalink

"Yeah," he sighs.

Permalink

Hugs.

Permalink

Hugs.

"Want to hear some horrifying things about me in case they make you feel better?"

Permalink

"...Okay..."

Permalink

"It's - you seemed surprised that I might be the kind of person who'd feel good about murdering somebody, and... I really, really am. More than you know."

Hug.

"Like... I didn't take the þainneið because that's the kind of person I am. I took it because that's the kind of person I want to act like."

Permalink

...Slow nod.
