“Grey?” Father’s voice echoes around me. The air in the tunnel is damp and stale. It feels warmer here. We have been in this tunnel for weeks now.

“Grey!” There’s a note of despair in his voice. He’s calling me, but he doesn’t expect it to work. He’s lost his mind. I have to get away from him.

“No,” I wheeze. I stumble down the tunnel. I have to get out; I have to get away from him. “Leave me alone!”

“Please, no,” Father whispers in the dark. “Please, God, please…”

I wipe my forehead with the back of my hand; it is slick with sweat. The image of my dirty hand swims before me. I feel my body give, and I fall.
