For #LineByLineTime : Difficult Scenes
“They get to make choices, but we don’t?” Nita snarled. “We just get to be pawns in whatever weird little game you’re playing, huh?”

The choices you have made before now brought you here. The choices you have made since are proof you are the best chance this world has to survive.”
There was silence as the teens digested this. Their faces showed their doubts, disbelief, and in Nita’s, anger still.
