            One, two, three, four, five. Abby stopped the chest compressions and tried again to breathe life into Connor’s lungs.

            Dammit, Connor, why didn’t you wait? Why did you just go charging in like some stupid bloody white knight?

            One, two, three, four, five. Breathe, you idiot, breathe.

            A short distance away the children huddled together, coughing and crying. At least some of them had been saved from the building where the anomaly was spewing noxious Precambrian atmosphere into their world.  

            One, two, three, four, five.

            Why, Connor? Haven’t you ever heard of the saying ‘fools rush in’?

            Fools, and heroes.
