    The difference between Red’s behaviour after the phone call in the morning and the text message at night is the difference between getting shot and getting set on fire.

    Frank has seen both. Guys who catch bullets stew for a while about what they could’ve done different. What they would’ve done if they had another chance at the situation. With immolation, there’s no time to wonder about alternatives. There’s the blazing now. Frank saw a guy escape an explosion once. He ran out of the building, carrying the flames with him, before dancing around the street in a frantic inferno of charred skin and muscle. His body needed to do something even when the only thing left to do was burn.

    Red’s not good at burning. Kind of funny for a guy who is so damn good at setting himself on fire. He twitches and shuffles, Karen’s most recent text message prodding him more deeply than his broken leg. He turns his phone off and shoves it in the open duffel under the cot. And just when Frank thinks Red’s in for another fifteen hour standoff against proper pain meds, the kid nabs the T3 and swallows it dry.

    He drops back onto his pillow, twitching on the outside from how badly he’s flailing on the inside. Burning is, all told, one of the worst ways to go. His motions seem random at first, but as the kid settles into sleep, Frank notices him turning his head deeper into the pillow. Angling his ear towards the phone he worked to bury as if he’s expecting it to go off again.

    It dawns on Frank that Red’s attentiveness isn’t for Karen. He talked to her on the phone this morning, and then waited for the blow of someone else’s call. She’s the bullet. That Nelson guy? He’s the bomb.

    The one where Matt is the ocean and drags Frank with him off the edge.
