“Now, you listen to me, okay? No one is going to die here.” snarls the hero “We’re all going to be okay.”

They’re not. The hero is bleeding and there’s some kind of pain coming from deep in xir chest. But giving into despair won’t save anyone.

“Follow me, okay?” says the hero, aiming for lighthearted. The civilians nod, and stagger to their feet.

One more thing. Xe can do this one more thing.
