'There might be a way,' Maxwell dramatically said.

The crowd seemed to tense, almost being able to tell that this was a lie. But they couldn't. They thought that perhaps Maxwell was simply strained looking, and so even the security officers in the room couldn't tell. Maxwell held his breath tight, and then silently let go as nobody noticed the lie.

'There- the- Actu- There might be an end to this?' asked Gunderson excitedly.

'Y-y-yes,' said a man, 'I knew it couldn't be unstoppable!"

Another woman continued this, 'It's just a ruddy fire! We could put it out easily! We just need the stuff!'

The whole crowd cheered, but the first woman, who must've been important, raised her hand and announced, 'Well... I sense something fishy about this. I've seen cop-outs like this before, although never on such a large scale. They try to be hopeful to distract people. Don't you realize his mistakes!'

Gunderson's attitude died down a bit, 'What?'

'Well,' the woman continued, as Maxwell's hopes plumetted, 'I think that the country charred and the people  burnt to a crisp should account for something, shouldn't they?'

Maxwell acted quickly, 'I... Have to say that this is a good point. You should probably tie me up and torture me and execute me. I have caused great sufefring and damage. You can take everything from me, but only after I have shown you the way to the anti-substance.'

'Which I'm pretty sure doesn't exist,' said the woman, 'This is all a bunch of nonsense, it's a lie! I say we tie him up and board a flight to the UN headquarters! The capital must be burning by now! Somebody grab him!'

But while all of these orders were being issued, Maxwell had rushed out of the door and was gone.

"NOOOOOO!!' screamed the lady, 'I'll get that Maxwell and see that he gets destroyed just as he destroyed this country!'

And Maxwell was officially a criminal.
