"I'll scream," Donna warned Carl as they stood outside the Hudson house, his hand clamped firmly over her wrist. "John is right inside, he'll- "

"Scream, then," Carl suggested politely.

"What do you want from me?" she demanded, inexplicably actually lowering her voice, rather than raising it as promised. Donna realized that whatever she'd be forced to face now, she owed it to John and Sharlene to leave them out of it.

"A bit late in the game to be posing such a question, is it not?"

"A bit late," Donna agreed. "To do anything."

"Oh, I wouldn't say that."

"Fine, Carl," she snapped, yanking her arm free, tired of the dread, tired of the game, tired of it all. "Go on. Get it over with. Recite your piece, do your worst."

"No," Carl said.

"No?" Whatever momentum Donna may have felt she'd gained by taking charge of the situation dissipated alongside his denial.

"No," he repeated. "That would be much, much too simple."
