Where Will You Stand When the Flood Comes?
Jordan and Hazel’s pleas were falling on deaf ears, as much as Nate wished otherwise.

He knew it wasn’t ok, he knew they couldn’t stay together. Even if he left with them now, someone would come along and try to kill them, and he’d probably leave them high and dry because he was such a coward. Even if he didn’t, whoever had come along, probably a friend, would just kill him and it’d be over anyway.

And a rescue? It had been six days already; if a rescue was coming, wouldn’t one have by now? How many of these things even ended in rescue? It was a nice thought, but nice thoughts hadn’t done him any good until now, and now he was at the brink of suicide. It didn’t seem like he’d ever think a nice thought ever again.

He kept holding Hazel’s hands, still sobbing, but just a bit quieter as he tired out. His throat was growing hoarse, and his eyes were turning red and sore again, both made sensitive by the days of tears.

“It’s – it’s no good. We’re all going to die, or start killing each other. I just don't want to do it anymore.”

Resident Evil
Kay, looked like she had gotten through to Kimiko. Probably. Kind of hard to tell.

All the same, she let out a sigh of relief when Kimiko went on ahead, taking her gun and her kill streak with her. That could’ve gone a lot of ways, but not being shot at was definitely her preferred outcome. She also wasn't looking forward to Kimiko asking if she wanted to 'team up', or something. Kind of hard to work with a stranger who's confirmed as armed and dangerous, but she wasn't so sure Kimiko would've just politely accepted a no.

Still, all things considered, she'd hopefully done some good with her advice. She might’ve even saved someone’s life, if Kimiko remembered what she’d said. Hey, that’d be cool.

She looked around the room another time, lingering, glancing at the corpse again. Then she caught herself hanging around for no good reason, and moved on.

Where Will You Stand When the Flood Comes?
He could barely hear the others over the horrible storm of his screaming thoughts and the rapid gasps for air between the sobs. If he wasn’t so self-conscious of how horribly humiliating this all was, he might have even forgotten they were there.

Why? He just came up here to end it all, so why did he have to keep pretending? How was he supposed to do that? What was he supposed to say to Jordan and Hazel now? Even now, in his final moments, he still had to make himself look like a complete spaz loser.

His head was swimming in circles, his legs growing weak, breath leaving him, as if he was drowning in his own tears. Just as he was about to black out from it all, he felt Hazel’s hands grasp his, her head pressing against his own. Suddenly, he was anchored.

His breathing started to steady, if still rapid and shallow. He stopped trying to word empty apologies, even if he was thinking them over and over and over. He needed Hazel so much right now, someone to tether him away from the all-consuming that he was trying to dive into. He needed someone to stop him.

“I just, I just-“ he whimpered, pressing back into Hazel’s head with his own as if it would make any difference. He had to confess.

“I just wanted to die and get it over with!”

Resident Evil
“Yes, it is.”

No room for negotiation, no need for hesitation, this was as cut and dry as things came. Throw the gun away, stop being a murderer, be better for it. Saying otherwise was just making excuses.

“You could say to me,” choice of words “’oh, I’ve started doing this now, I better finish it’, but that’s just going back to commitment again. And, honestly, I don’t think you actually want to kill everyone. I haven’t been shot yet, for starters. Again, thanks for that.”

She was offering Kimiko a smile now, a little bit of a sympathy if not quite understanding of her situation. There was still that hint of impatience about Kimiko’s whole dilemma, but that couldn’t be helped.

“Only person who’s going to tell you you have to keep doing this is you, y’know? Anyone tries to tell you otherwise, you tell ‘em to fuck right off. Hell, you don’t even need to spell it out. Just give ‘em the old one finger salute.”

“What do you think? Sound good?”

Resident Evil
A few minutes ago, Vanessa probably would’ve flinched when Kimiko advanced, shaking with obvious anger. Right now, though, their (technically one-sided) shouting match was taking precedence other any survival instincts.

She patiently watched Kimiko’s jittery signing, then threw her own hands up as the message came across. She was starting to do some shaking of her own, thanks to the frustration building over this whole thing.

“Were you even fucking listening? I said there’s two things you can do here! Two! One of those is not being ‘the monster I want you to be’!”

She pressed a palm to her forehead, groaning loud and clear at Kimiko’s tunnel vision. She didn’t exactly consider this complicated.

“Ok, first of all, I don’t want you to be a monster. I don’t know what you’ve been doing, except killing people, but I don’t think that means, like, you’re automatically fucked up permanently? I mean, fuck, people kill under circumstances like this, shit happens.”

She paused. Reflected on some of the killers. Continued.

“Ok, that’s doesn’t mean it’s ok, but you get what I mean?”

“What I’m trying to say is, you can do the right thing right now, and decide not to go on killing more people. Just, decide you’re not going to be the monster, or some shit like that. I mean, hey, I’ve gone this whole time without so much as punching someone in the face. That’s got to mean something, right?”

She nodded at Kimiko with her eyebrow arched, signalling for some confirmation that she wasn’t wasting her breath, and that maybe she was starting to get it already?

Resident Evil
“Well, ok, yeah, you’re right. I don’t know what I’m talking about. But you know what? I’m not the one here fucking about going all-” she exaggerated a shrug and pulled a derp-eyed expression. “-about the whole thing.”

She was definitely getting pissed off now. As always, she was playing just as big a part in getting herself to that point as Kimiko’s indifference was pushing her there, but damn it she had some words that needed saying.

“So, no, I don’t know anything about killing people. I haven’t actually had the inclination there, Kimiko.” the words were coming out in an oh-so-sarcastic tone at this point, as her mouth ran ahead of her brain. “But like, does that mean I’m supposed to just stand here, let you go off and maybe kill someone, maybe not? What kind of person would that make me?”

She was biting her lip as she took a moment’s pause, shifting her weight between her feet whilst turning to look away from the source of her irritation, trying to compose her thoughts. It didn't last long, and soon she turned back.

“Christ, I mean, how hard is it? Either you’ve decided to fuck up and kill everyone you meet, because you want to go home more than them, or you’ve decided not to be a fucking monster, and you put the gun away for good. If you’re like ‘Oh fuckin’ ay I don’t know either way, derpaderp’ and you wind up shooting half the people you meet but not the rest, then what the fuck is wrong with you?”

Where Will You Stand When the Flood Comes?
The concern in Jordan's greeting. The warmth in Hazel's hug. The casualness of the entire situation.

It was just so wrong.

He tried to reply to them, tried to force a smile, but it was long past possible.

He stammered, unable to stop himself no matter how hard he wanted to, until it all broke down and he finally burst into tears. Inbetween the sobs, he was still trying to say that he was fine.

Resident Evil
“What the hell is that supposed to mean? How hard is it to say yes or no? Or hand it out, whatever.”

Vanessa couldn’t quite pin what was irking her about this situation, outside of Kimiko’s reluctance to actually answer her question properly. As much as the brush off was annoying, there was something about the topic itself that was just putting her on edge.

Maybe it was because she herself didn’t know how to react to either answer. Would she take a promise of pacifism at face value? Try to talk Kimiko out of continuing her killing if that was the plan? Until she actually had a response, there was no real way for her to know.

“If you’re going to go and kill like, half a dozen people, you can at least show a little fucking commitment either way.”

Ok, commitment to more murder would be a bad thing, and maybe that wouldn’t have been her first choice of wording if she said it again, but she knew what she meant. She really hated it when people were being wishy washy, even when it was about killing more people apparently.

At the end of the day, she just needed Kimiko to quit it with the ambiguity already so that she could make her own mind up.

Resident Evil
A blank stare. Well then.

That tension born of hanging out in the same room as a serial killer was starting to die down, as irritation moved to take its place. If there was one thing Vanessa didn’t like, it was being ignored.

“Hey, asked you a question. Your hands not working, or something?”

Maybe not the best tone to take with Kimiko, but Vanessa was still breathing, so maybe she’d overestimated how dangerous the situation was. Besides, it wasn’t like she was being rude or whatever, just trying to get a confirmation that Kimiko wasn’t about to go out and try to murder some more of her classmates. Maybe she was being a bit optimistic, trying to get Kimiko to wave the words ‘No Vanessa, I will not kill anyone anymore. I have turned over a new leaf, thanks to you.’, but it was better than leaving the question just hanging there.

Well, maybe not better, but it was what Vanessa preferred.

Resident Evil
Ok, her face continued to not have an extra hole in it. That was good.

Yet still she felt her heart beat in her chest, a glimmer of sweat starting to form on her brow. She still had a placating grin on her face, brought out by the nervous laughter and held there by the same force. It was the only face she could think to make in response to Kimiko’s sullen stare.

What now? Her search for Alessio had reached another dead end, but this dead end could turn on her and start firing bullets if she wasn’t careful. It would probably just be best to step out, let Kimiko go on with her mass murdering in peace and let that sort itself out.

She was about to open her mouth, politely excuse herself, when an ugly thought occurred: maybe someone in her position had had the same reaction to Alessio.

Her fake grin dropped suddenly, much to her dismay. She was pretty sure that Cameron was Alessio’s first victim (a bit of bile rose in her throat with that thought), but he’d gone on to kill other people, and they’d probably had friends like Vanessa was to Cameron.

This wasn't the first time she'd thought about this, and she'd already made up her mind: avenging everyone Alessio had killed would be stupid, and it wasn’t her problem. Yeah, it sucked for them, and it sucked for their friends, but that blood wasn’t on her hands. She was in it purely for her BFF, and BFFs of Alessio’s other victims could sort out their own mess. As much as they would be able to after she was through with him, anyway.

Still, how would she react if she let Kimiko walk out of here now, only to find out the next day that she’d murdered, like, Jae? Killer or not she still liked the guy, however long ago their hanging out felt like. Hell, even if it turned out Coleen had bitten the dust because of Kimiko, there’d be a pang of guilt to go with it. Oh, right, she was a killer too.

Christ, she was running out of friends who weren’t homicidal.

She turned her attention back to Kimiko. Fuck it, she could at least ask.

“So, hey, if I just walk out of here now, are you going to keep on doing that? Killing people, I mean.”
