Oh, ma frickin' G.
I got chills
Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place. Gabe literally has no good options unless they do the action movie go rogue, run away, keep running thing. and then eventually stop and make a final stand, win, and get to live happily ever after. maybe that'll happen. maybe later. it's definitely not possible now; Gabe isn't ready for it.
It's short, of course. There's a lot still left unsaid. Hopefully, that which needs to be elaborated on shall be in the next one.
