She sounded so scared on the phone. She told me, "We're all in danger! And please don't ever call this number again. I became so angry and I lost it.
I was now hungry for revenge. My brother and I swore to avenge our parents. I joined the firemen to gain trust and make them crumble from the inside while my brother gathered survivors and those who were willing to fight for the same cause.
Someone had reported an illegal possession of books. I arrived at the scene to see my brother along with his supporters in a house filled with old books. This memory will be embedded into my mind for as long as I live.
I remember it like it was yesterday. The images are too vivid. I remember opening my mouth to call out to my brother. I remember thinking about knocking all the other firemen out and helping my brother escape. My brother stopped me before I could say anything that would expose our relationship and ruin the plan. He cried a sharp no as his eyes peered into my soul. They spoke to me, they told me not to say anything, and pretend we had no relation. Like when the old woman from a few days ago, my brother refused to leave.
He and his supporters decided to burn along with the books. When they declared this, my brother looked at me again. With sad eyes but a smile on his face, he didn't say a word. However - that face of his that haunts me to this day told me to do the honors.
I couldn't at first. I couldn't bring myself to kill my beloved brother. I was like you Montag, I tried to save them. They were so set on dying there with the books. I let them die, right there in front of my eyes. Do you know how hard it was for me to act indifferent to that woman burning?

I achieved status when I became captain. I don't even know why but I risked all that I've built on you. I gave you so many chances to turn back but you never did.
I knew you were special when you hesitated at the old woman's house. You didn't want her to die, you wanted to save her! That's why I tried to save you!
I gave you so many chances! Why didn't you run? Montag was not expecting this; he didn't know Beatty had such a past. I shouldn't have been so insensitive. I thought you were going to turn me in! Put you in jail? At least you would've been kept alive! If they knew about your actions, you would've been part of an "accident".
And…I couldn't bear to lose you. I felt that it was my duty to protect you, Montag. So please, burn down this house along with the books in it and let me arrest you," Beatty pleaded. I have to go to save mankind.

He lifted his arms again, this time he wrapped his arms around Montag's body. He buried his face into Montag's shoulder, drenching the man's shirt. Montag's heart skipped a beat.
He did not struggle this time. His heart started to pound at Beatty's words. No one had ever made me feel this way before…I've never felt so needed…Not Mildred, not anyone has ever said this to me before. It makes me feel…What's this called? Is this what Clarisse was talking about?
If I blew a dandelion now, would it stick to my chin? Out of impulse, Montag draped his arms around Beatty's neck. Montag pressed his lips against Beatty's. The men share a passionate kiss.
The two men felt as if they were the only ones in the world.
They were able to forget about their problems for a moment and just think about each other. Montag slips his tongue into the man's mouth. Beatty moans in pleasure.
