She ran through the dark streets, the rain torrential on her covered body. 'They won't stop,' she was warned, 'until they have you'. So she ran. Once the act was done, she ran and ran and ran as fast and as far as her legs could carry her. The soldiers, whom she knew were servants to their enemy, his nemesis, pursued without hesitation. They were not human, like her. They did not have a concept of rest or exhaustion. She would be hunted until her death or this universe's. But she had a plan. She reached the bridge, which was closed down and blocked off already. Even she couldn't clear it in time. She turned to face her pursuers, their ashen grey faces staring at her with steel eyes, their guns trained on her, not to kill, but to capture. They needed her. A specimen like her was invaluable for those like them. She played the game, followed the rules. But the rules were rigged, the game was a fraud. There was only ever one outcome in this game: Her defeat.

But she did not fall in love with a player of games.

She reached into her pocket, removing her final salvation and the key to defeating their enemy. A single fragmentation grenade. She felt the fear coursing in her system, and she could see the apprehension on the ashen faces of her enemies. She was scared; who wouldn't be scared, when faced with the prospect of ending their own existence? She was told that this was the only way out, the surest way to win, that it would all be OK. But the man who told her had also warned her never to trust him, under any circumstances. Did that include these circumstances?

Deciding in an instant as the soldiers began stepping forward, feeling confident now that she was bluffing, she yanked the pin out from the grenade. As their steel eyes shot open, one of the soldiers asked out to her, speaking with its master's voice.

"WHY DO YOU OBEY HIM. WHY HIM AND NOT ME."

She wanted to smile, like she imagined he would, but she couldn't manage it. She wasn't him, she didn't have his age, his quantum powers, his immortality. Even now, even when everything was left to him, when she had to trust him now more than anybody ever had to trust anything else ever before, she couldn't muster the kind of confidence he'd have.

But she had picked up a thing or two about his wordsmithing.

"Because I'm not like you," she said.

"I still have a soul."

And then the world erupted in fire and fragmentation.
