    Her almond eyes meet yours, familiar. Foreign. "I know you have family over there. You understand, right?"
    You do. You aim the rifle at the child. "Do what's best, Miss. For all of us."
    She surrenders; you leave the child clutching his blanket, hoping he would die soon (the dead don't suffer).
