We Are 138 #16 - Survival

It kills me to see you like this. Crying. Covered in blood that isn’t yours. Done. Exhausted. It’s like a knife to the heart, or should I say head. Because that is what you’ve done, what we’ve had to do, over and over. Stick knives straight through their heads. It’s the only way to stop them, the only way we’ll ever survive. You don’t do guns. The noise draws them.
You’re a killer, but you’re not. Well, not really. You’re saving us. How long it will last, I don’t know, but for now, we’re safe. Kind of. I will never be able to thank you enough, so for now, let’s just lie here, together, and hope, pray, that we’ll still be here tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that. We can do that, can’t we?
