Once more unto the breech

 

 

When they arrived, Becker didn’t get out of the car, just stared at the anomaly through the window.

 

“I’m getting weary of this,” he said. “We catch the creatures, lock the anomaly, but what good does it do? Another one opens and we’re back to square one. I’m tired of all the hurt and chaos and losing friends to these things.”

 

Matt nodded. “I know, but if we weren’t here it would be worse. These creatures would do more damage.” He opened the door. “Coming?”

 

Becker reluctantly got out of the car. They had a job to do, after all.

I can see how it could get the them all, the constant repeating of the same thing.

It would be disheartening to know that you couldn't permanently fix the problem, just temporarily.

He'll be fine- he's just having a bad day.

meep! It must get frustrating, knowing they are only dealing with the symptoms, and never tackling the real problem.

It must, especially seeing the damage the creatures can do and knowing they can't always stop it.

It must be tough, knowing you can't actualy solve the problem, just clean up the mess afterwards.
