Total Desolation Part 7

I tucked the wanted poster into one of the pockets of my trench coat and walked thru the lobby and out to the street again. I looked at all the Dracs laying there and picked my way around them until I was at a bridge that crossed over a pond in the middle of the town. I sat myself down on the railing of the bridge letting my legs dangle down above the water.
I watched as Waterfall, Raven, Torture, and Fang emerged from the movie theater and looked around, presumably searching for me. I watched as Torture and Fang went off searching within buildings looking for me, I thought about yelling out to them that I was right here but I would much rather be alone.
I looked down and watched the fish swimming around thru the water. Then I stared at my reflection staring back at me. How could I go on like this, I can deal with my family being dead but can I deal with being the one who killed my family?
I was interrupted by Raven coming up behind me. I turned my head to look at him, “I just want to be alone right now.”
“You just killed your family, you do not want to be alone.”
“What? How do you-” he cut me off.
“Waterfall Bomb told me.”
“Well what do you know, you wouldn’t know how it feels, just leave me alone.” It was quiet for a while before he responded.
“I killed my brother a while back, he was completely drained of all emotion. I know what it feels like to kill your family.”
“It’s not right, Better Living shouldn’t have the ability to do this!”
“I know, but there's nothing we can do about it except keep fighting back until one of us wins.”
“I fucking hate Better Living and what they did to my family, they made me kill them!”
“It’s not your fault, they were going to kill you otherwise, you were forced into doing this as an act of fight or flight. Without it you would have died.”
I let my head fall forward into my hands and before I knew it I was falling, I hadn’t balanced my weight enough to keep me on the bridge.
I let out a slight scream and watched as Raven lunged forward in an attempt to grab me and stop me from falling but he was too late. I fell down into the cold water of the pond, the water surrounded me from every angle as I plunged down farther. I hadn’t had the time to catch my breath before I hit the water and I had screamed on my way down, I hadn’t had oxygen in my body, surely not enough to live through this.
I watched my life flash before my eyes, the good times I had with my family before Better Living took over; the moments I spent with my friends; all of my crazy stunts; all my friends faces flashed before me; I saw everyone I had saved from Better Living; I watched life defining moments and moments that I never wanted to think about again; I watched everything that I had ever done flash before my eyes up to the moment where I saw Raven lunging towards me. I knew for sure this time I was going to die, there was no escaping this time, no one to come save me. I was going to die the very day my family died, it almost made me happy, to think we would all die together. But then there was everything I was leaving behind, I would miss life and all its moments, good and bad.
