It’ll be a while before he comes down again. It’s like a drug, and we’re like junkies. I don’t get the same highs I used to anymore, just the cravings. The euphoria has faded, and life’s more of a struggle now. It’s getting harder to find food, and I’m tired. The gap between kills is increasing, and all that’s left to do in those gaps is think. “The feeling doesn’t go,” I answer. ” “Wish I’d been there at the start…” For a few seconds he’s quiet again, daydreaming about all the opportunities he’s convinced he’s missed.

He’s calling for reinforcements, but he hasn’t seen me.
