She lifted her head and gave him a reassuring smile. “It isn’t your fault. The order came from Oversight. You have to comply.”

Operations’s voice cracked. “I can’t.”

“You have to.”

“Paul…” She was trembling, and her smile did little to hide it. “Please.”

A tear slipped down his cheek. “Madeline…I love you.”

She nodded. “I know.”

Shaking, his vision blurred with tears, he raised the gun to her head and squeezed the trigger.
