Of Mice and Men

What mood does this passage create? What emotions do you feel when you read it?

Lennie turned his head and looked off across the pool and up the darkening slopes of Gabilans. "We gonna get a little place," George began. He reached in his side pocket and brought out Carlson's Luger; he snapped off the safety, and the hand and the gun lay on the ground behind Lennie's back. He looked at the back of Lennie's head, at the place where the spine and skull were joined.

The mood the passage creates in the reader is ominous. For me, it evokes sadness........ we know what's going to happen, but we can also see how George is trying to do what he feels necessary in the easiest way possible.
