Curtis: "How old are you?"
Curtis: "Seventeen. You're a train baby, then."
Yona: "How about you?"
Curtis: "Seventeen years on Earth. Seventeen years in the tail section."
You ever been to the tail section? Do you have any idea what went on back there? When we boarded? It was chaos. Yeah, we didn't freeze to death, but we didn't have time to be thankful. Wilford's soldiers came and they took everything. A thousand people in an iron box. No food, no water... after a month, we ate the weak... you know what I hate about myself? I know what people taste like. I know that babies taste best... there was a woman. She was hiding with her baby. And some men with knives came. They killed her and they took her baby. And then an old man-no relation, just an old man-stepped forward and he said, "Give me the knife." And everyone thought he'd kill the baby himself. But he took the knife and he cut off his arm. And he said, "Eat this, if you're so hungry. Eat this, just leave the baby." I had never seen anything like that. And the men put down their knives... you've probably guessed who that old man was. That baby was Edgar. And I was the man with the knife. I killed Edgar's mother... and then one by one, other people in the tail section started cutting off arms and legs and offering them. It was like a miracle. And I wanted to. I tried, it's... a month later, Wilford's soldiers brought those protein blocks. We've been eatin' that shit ever since. 18 years I've hated Wilford. 18 years I've waited for this moment. And now I'm here... open the gate. Please.Snowpiercer, by Curtis Everett
