Extract

As I knew it would, my heart starts to race. This is by far the riskiest part of the whole plan. Now, if he tries his trick, I'm dead.
Maybe we'll get that sweet karmic ending after all.
He's got a fantastic weapon, he's strong, he's angry, he's free.
He holds all the cards but one.
Information.
He doesn't know that the gun is empty.
