When she finally caught up with the agent was looking around frantically, trying to find means of escape. Suddenly, his eyes met Melody's, and he stood straighter and narrowed his eyes to show defiance against his pursuer.

"So, Red Boris," Melody said, drawing out her gun. "Trapped are we? Trapped like the rat you are."

"You vill not stop dee revolution, captiteeleest pig," said Red, trying desperately to sound brave in the face of death and failing miserably. "Vee vill rise up against...."

"Save the speech, Red" Melody interrupted. "Your time is up... and... well... I've got good news... and I've got bad news.... The bad news is: You're going to die alone, a fameless casualty for an unjust cause."

Red swallowed nervously. "And the good news?"

He left the world with her voice ringing in his ears.
