Only 3 minutes after the guy in front of me gets his meal, I get mine. There must be something wrong with the machine, since usually I have to wait for at least ten minutes. I sit down by myself as usual and start eating. It's cold, and seems to be a few weeks old, but it's better than nothing. Suddenly the screens on the walls come on and Breen delivers another one of his speeches. It's basically just more of his brainwashing bullshit, he's talking about instinct, and how it's our enemy. He still seems to refer to the Combine as "our benifactors", although it seems to be more along the lines of "Breen's benifactors" based on what I've heard.
I finish the meal and start walking back home. This time I avoid looking at the execution I saw earlier, I don't really want the Combine to catch me peeking in on their little parties. I also take the longer, but safer detour again, they might still be pounding on the helpless citizens I saw them beat so brutally before. I finally reach my building, the Combine that stood by the door to the other block are still there, and so are the two guys I spoke to earlier.
I walk up to my apartment and get inside. My roommate is sitting at the table, doing nothing as always. All of a sudden I see a man outside the apartment. I struggle for a bit to remember where I've seen him before, but then I realize it's the same guy I saw at the trainstation. He enters the apartment, not that I really care, and then walks out through the other exit. That was odd.
Wait a minute, I've seen that guy before!
Could it be...
Was that Gordon Freeman?
