It's only an echo.

No, somebody's out there.

Even if there is,
he'll be locked up like us.

How can you sleep?

But I'll be here.

What do you want?

Give me back my medicine.

I don't have it.

For both of us.

I've been protected.

You've been dead.

You're dead.

Will you hit me again?

Stop it...



must... get away.

Why did you come back?
