“What would have happened if I hadn’t done it?” I felt numb.

“Look kid, don’t ask questions you don’t really want to know. Right now, the whole world is looking for people like you and most of us are worried. Counter-intelligence is shitting themselves.

According to the President himself, you’re either with us, or against us. But between you and me, I think you did the right thing.”
