Renee Murphy, as Facemade by me!

Renee nodded. "Yeah," she said. "It doesn't take a lot to break people these days." She turned around on the stool and looked around the saloon. She absorbed every detail of the chaos. She stared at the bullet holes, the overturned tables, the broken glass, and the bodies. They were being accompanied by the dead as they talked. Fantastic.

"Can you even imagine?" she asked quietly. "Can you even see Simon doing all of this? I didn't know him very well, but could you really see him do anything even remotely resembling this?" Renee shook her head before frowning. Sam said that he saw Richard and Clair die. So that meant that Sam had seen the other two killers in this place. Delilah and Rebecca. It felt so weird to call them killers, as if that were some foreign word that one couldn't imagine applied to them.

"And you were there, weren't you?" Renee asked Sam. "You saw Rivers and Clark. You saw what they became, what we could become."

Renee didn't really know where she was going with this. So she just spoke her mind. Anything was better than the silence of the last couple of hours. She faced the counter again, face burried in her hands.

"I don't know anymore. I used to be so confident, so sure in myself. In school, I always made sure to get the best marks I could get, you know? I wanted to go to medical school, become a doctor. Now, it's all pointless. I'm going to die here and so will you. Some killer will win this. He'll be the last one left, and he'll never be able to live with himself, especially after all of this. I mean, I wouldn't. Would you? So even if we do win this, we'd have to deal with all of this trauma. So... there is no winner. No one wins. Everyone dies, one way or another."

Renee didn't realize it at first, but something was hampering her ability to speak. She felt her eyes getting wet. For the next few minutes, she cried silently as Sam watched her. God, she didn't need this. She didn't need to look weak. It would just make her such an easy target. Why couldn't she stop crying?

She managed to regain her composure after a few minutes. Drying her eyes, she faced Sam. Placing a hand on his shoulder she said, "Hey, uh, thanks for listening to me. I really appreciate it. And, um, sorry for all the drama. I know that you probably don't need any more of this, especially from me."
