Renee Murphy, as Facemade by me!
[ *  * ]
"I'm not a good person," Renee said. She could feel her heart pumelling inside her chest. "What sort of a good person leaves a bleeding girl on the ground? Conroy's probably dead because of me!"

That last part made it out louder than she anticipated. It made her realize something. She was dead. Cameo was dead because Renee refused to help her. Because Renee was so scared of failing to help someone.

Renee looked at Sam right in the eye, not caring at all that both of them were holding guns. This just became much more personal.

"But you were right, Sam. You said that you're going to die on your own terms. I'm going to die, too, but I've accepted that now. And just like you, I'm going to die on my own terms. If that means I'm going to die with an ally, a friend, then that's already more than I can ask for."

Renee knew very well that she was going to die at some point in the near future. The inevitability struck her, but that didn't mean she couldn't do something in the mean time. She could still help someone.

Renee sighed and turned away a little. She realized that what she was insisting on was absolutely stupid. She knew that Sam was right, that he'd only get her killed. But she needed to come on this trip. If she could help Sam get Delilah back to normal, to the way she was before then that'd be great. If she couldn't... well, at least she'd be with him.

Of course, there was another reason that Renee wanted to come with Sam. It was something that she didn't want to admit herself, but it didn't seem like there was any harm in telling Sam. She'd already poured out all of her other feelings on him.

"I just... I don't want to be alone, Sam. I've always had my friends, but I'm alone out here. I need someone, please." Maybe she was asking the right person at the wrong time. But Renee needed someone like Sam. To keep her sane, so as to not fall into the same trap that Vivian did, of trusting someone that shouldn't have been trusted.

"Look," she said. "I know that you want to find Delilah really badly. But that doesn't mean I can't come along. I promise I'll be careful. I'll stay out of sight when you find her. I'll do whatever you say, just don't ask me to leave. Is there any room for compromise at all, Sam?"
