He huffs out a gasp. I can't. I am physically incapable of that.

And I-- I'm not playing their game, Elle. I'm not.

Then we're all dead, Ben. They'll torture us. And I won't heal, Ben. I won't heal.

[He shakes his head.] Neither did Prissy. I couldn't do it for her either.

So that's it, then? You're just going to let me and Guri and Anachiel die?

[She looks over her shoulder as men come in, locking the door behind them. When she turns back, her eyes are wide and panicked.] Please don't let them do it to me, Ben. Don't let them hurt me! You know what they'll do!

The insurgents fed the wolf children. And I can't. I just can't fight a baby angel.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry, Ellie...

[Elle screams as the men pull her away, kicking at them and trying to twist out of their grasp as they pull her into the shadows.]

[And then she's sitting behind him, watching the scene over his shoulder as the men disappear into the darkness. She's covered in blood, her face slashed as if by claws.] You ask me, this is what really makes you a monster, Bennie Boy. Will you ever stop letting other people get hurt and do nothing but watch?

[His arms never move from over his head.] People are gonna get hurt no matter what I do. I can't stop evil people from being evil.

But I can be not evil myself.

Fighting a baby angel would be evil. I won't do it.

[She watches him, unimpressed.] You didn't even try. You didn't even suggest alternatives. You refused to help at all.

You just apologized for being so pathetic and did nothing.

Evil, Ben. Very evil. Letting people you say you care for get hurt like that...

For adversarially, continued from here.

[Shai smirks and takes a huge bite of the bloodied hunk in his hand, chewing with his mouth obscenely open.] Well. I don't pick my pets for their brains, Benji.

Now. Open up.

[Between fangs.] I am not. Your fuckin' pet.

... I can't.

Can't. Really. I wonder what Galiel has to say about that. [Shaitan cups a hand around one ear.] Oh, right, nothing.

Don't act like I won't fucking do it, puppy.

[He turns his face to the floor.] I know you will.

But I can't. I'm sorry, Galiel...

[Galiel makes a strangled, whimpering attempt to be comforting, and Shaitan throws his head back and laughs contemptuously.] Fuck, you two are pathetic, you know that?

[He doesn't move his head.] Coming from you, I'll take that as a compliment, asshole.
