"We can't stay here. You can't. I.. if you won't come with us, you need to go someplace else. Get out of the city."

Permalink

Gage whimpers. "Just go. Just fucking go."

Permalink

"Tell me you're leaving."

Permalink

"Fine. Fine."

Permalink

Seth is tempted to make him go with them, but instead sighs and rubs his arms.

"I don't know what going on either. They said... they want my DNA."

Permalink

Gage covers his ears, half sobbing. "I don't- I don't want to know, I don't care, just go. Get them out of here!"

Permalink

"Okay. I'm going. But you have to leave now. I'm sorry. There's money under my bed. Take it."

Permalink

Gage makes an aborted nod.

Permalink

Seth fidgets and nods in return. He wants to say something, do something. Help. But instead forces himself to turn around and go upstairs to his bedroom. He knows what to pack. He's done this so many times before. They haven't lived here very long, and he's always moved around. The trials of being a in the foster system, having five minutes notice and packing everything in a worn plastic bag. He hasn't done this for years, not since he aged out -- but it's easy.

It takes him just under four minutes and he's downstairs and ready to go.

Shepard is bouncing on her toes, looking concerned, until Seth returns.

"Ready? We're running out of time."

Permalink

"I'm ready."

He looks around for Gage.

Permalink

"Okay, I know you're worried for your friend, but when I said we gotta go, we gotta go. Now."

She grabs Seth's arm.

Permalink

Seth pulls it out of her grip; angry and confused and upset. He doesn't want to leave.

"I know. Just lead."

Permalink

Shepard holds both hands up in a 'I surrender' motion. 

"Stay close. I mean it." 

She heads back down the hall, stepping over dead bodies with apparent ease.

Permalink

"Yeah, I totally didn't mean it when I said it," Wildling says drily, falling into step beside them.

Permalink

Seth ignores her and the bodies and keeps pace easily.

"Where are we going? How are we getting there?"

Permalink

"We'll-"

Permalink

"You'll find out is the answer to both of those."

Permalink

He raises an eyebrow at her, unimpressed.

"Obviously. But I want to know in advance."

Permalink

"And I'd like not to be babysitting, but we don't always get what we want."

Permalink

"Ha, ha, she's a charmer. Wild, shh."

"The real answer to those questions is that we can't say anything until we're sure Abstergo isn't listening. We reveal anything, we get raided by more agents than we can fend off."

Permalink

A loud shot rings out close by, followed by a shout.

"Speaking of..." Comes a voice over the radio. She reloads and continues. "Got more coming, be there in three minutes."

Permalink

"The apartment block is about to lose power. I suggest running."

Permalink

"Oop, we gotta book it."

Shepard takes off at a run, busting through the door to the stairwell.

Permalink

Wildling's run is more like flying, her feet never seeming to actually make contact with the ground. 

She slides down the banisters rather than take the stairs.
