What Am I Supposed To Do?!?!

Why won't they just shut it for once? What is their problem? Do they not see how serious this is?

Or am I the only one who's been listening here?

With a frustrated yowl, Thorn turned on Arrow and Emerald:

"What is your problem with each other? Don't we have enough problems to deal with without you two being at each other's throats all the time? We're going to have to work together here and your bickering isn't going to help that!"

Arrow looked at his charge, taken aback by Thorn's outburst. He heard Emerald sniff, but couldn't tell if she was upset or being derisive. Frustrated and despairing, Thorn sank onto the grass, his head in his hands and silent tears running down his cheeks.

This was just too much. He'd never done anything like this before and had no idea how to solve any of the problems they were confronted with. The Mist wanted him dead, him and Emerald both. How could he be sure it wouldn't just kill them both when it got the chance? And what about the others? What had it done with them? Would it really release them if he gave himself up, or was this just a trick to fool him into getting himself killed? He couldn't trust it to keep it's word.

But, then again, who could he trust? He barely knew Emerald, and he knew she was keeping secrets from him still. Arrow had absolutely no idea what was going on, and probably thought he was losing his mind. Kamika... what was it she had said before? He couldn't remember, nor was he able to try in the chaotic mess that his thoughts had become.

What was he going to do now? He couldn't give himself up without some guarantee that the others would be released and he couldn't just sit here waiting. If he did that, the Mist would just take them anyway.

But then, if he couldn't do either of those, what was he supposed to do?

The End
