"No," he cried, "No please, don't!" I turned around, too weak to watch him scream. He began to wail, and howl, like an animal, which I suppose, is all we really are in the end. "I'm sorry Quinton."

I walked through the white halls, glowing with florescent lights. I didn't want to do this, I shouldn't be doing this, but I had to. It was more than just mu job, it was my duty. As unpleasant as it was, I made a promise, and I was intent on keeping it. The hall seemed endless, but finally I reached room 666. I stepped on to the transfer pad, and punched in the key code.

"I'm sorry Quinton." I whispered. Behind me, the sound of his cries escalated.
