Windows User: Hey, can I get some help? I keep getting an error message when I try to run Photoshop CS.
Linux User: Switch to Linux.
Windows User: Isn't it a bit extreme to change my operating system because of the error in Photoshop? All I want to know is how to fix the error.
Linux User: Look, I'm going to give it to you straight. Microsoft are terrible when it comes to security. For your own sake, switch to Linux so you don't get infected by viruses or trojans.
Windows User: But I never open any unwanted email attachments, and besides I have a virus scanner which I update daily plus a firewall. Do I really need to use Linux?

This was the story:
Lance must've been in some kind of cell. He thought it was safest to continue pretending to be unconscious, so he lied on a hard, cold floor, unmoving, for a long time. It was about an hour before he heard the metallic creaking of a door opening. Some Caps came in and put him in some sort of transport capsule. It was tight and cramped, so much so that he couldn't sit up. And it was pitch black, so he couldn't see a thing even when he opened his eyes. It felt like he was in a coffin. He was becoming more and more claustrophobic, just waiting to suffocate to death.
Thankfully, though, it was only around ten minutes before the lid opened and he was taken out. They lifted him into what he guessed was a storage unit for bodies, a little niche carved into a wall high above the floor, like what you might find in catacombs. He didn't come out for a long time. The rest of the night and an entire day passed. Lance slept through most of it, but knew he didn't move

It was a comfortable silence, not like the awkward ones they had shared before. Jade actually found herself enjoying sitting next to him, just basking in his presence.
