(Got Mitsu's permission to get Serenity out of the area as well. You guys better hurry!
Brad wasn't going to laugh. He really didn't want to, but he managed to crack a grin despite his protests. He wanted to be serious but with someone like Dorian (whom Brad had no idea was actually Danya's assistant) stuttering through the announcements, it was hard taking things seriously. However this didn't last long, Simon's name was called, and instantly his smile disolved. He sighed rather loudly in annoyance.
"... kinda glad the coward's dead..."
Was that him saying that? Brad thought so. It certainly sounded like him, but he never knew he could be so hateful. He pulled himself together and bolted back into character.
"... and sorry about Trey." he finished, making eye contact with Terrie. He wanted to say something else, but his thoughts were interrupted.
Did they just say that the jailhouse had turned into a dangerzone? That was where....
Brad put his hands to the sides of his head and sighed again. "Oy Vey... and I was beginning to like this place too. Alright, we've got to get the hell out of here. We all got ten minutes before our heads go..." Kablam? What was this, a Looney Tunes cartoon? Brad sighed for the third time in five minutes. "Well, you all know what I mean..."
Brad eyes turned down to Serenity struggling to get up, and he grimaced. Serenity was a really sweet girl and all, but she was very weak. Kind of useless, but Brad wasn't going to leave anyone behind. He hated Simon and how cowardly he was, but that wasn't reason enough for him to feel someone at fault at what happened. He wasn't going to let the same thing happen to Serenity. He sighed a fourth time in a row, and knelt down.
"Alright Serenity. Don't try to strain yourself, you need all the energy you have. Let me just carry you out."
He felt like the hero in a disaster movie, or the protagionist in an action movie when he lifted Serenity in his arms. She was... certainly heavier than he first imagined she would. Serenity looked like a stringbean from afar, but she weighed much much more. Or maybe Brad was slightly out of shape? Was he tired? It felt like it, but Brad wasn't in the position to take a rest now. Maybe later. Hell he wouldn't be doing this if Serenity were able to walk, or he would have just let Ianto take her.
"Alright guys! What are we waiting for?" Brad barked before heading out the door. He rushed down the stairs as fast as he could without letting go of Serenity. Damn it... the things I do for people...
