She removed the surgical gloves she had been wearing and put them in her pocket. “This was not good,” she thought “This is eventually going to bring trouble to me. I can see more killings and more revenge killings in retaliation. I think it’s about time for me to leave, if I can. This ship is sinking, and I’m not in charge of the lifeboats”.
