The gun was raised and Nancy pulled the trigger. Kimiko closed her eyes and waited for the pain that would signal the end of her life. But it never came, she was still alive and the gun hadn't gone off. Kimiko slowly opened her eyes and was greeted by Nancy's cold, lifeless ones staring back at her, gun still gripped in her hand. Kimiko flopped back onto the floor, a smile forming on her face as she realised just her lucky she had been.

Hell could wait for another day.

She allowed herself a couple of minutes to just lie there as her heart rate slowed and the adrenaline left her body. Eventually Kimiko picked herself up, the smile gone, replaced by a look of determination. The library was completely silent. That was good. It meant no one else was around. She had time to make sure everything was done properly. Moving forward she crouched down and pried the gun out of Nancy's hand. It was surprisingly heavy in her hands. It surprised her considering how easily they were carried about in movies. Then again, movies were fake so she supposed she shouldn't have been surprised.

Kimiko turned the gun over in her hand and carefully took in every detail. It took a while but she managed to drop the magazine out onto the floor. After picking it up she found it was empty, which explained why Nancy had been unable to shoot her. Kimiko made a note to try and keep track of how many bullets were left. Stepping past Nancy, Kimiko grabbed the bag that used to belong to the girl and start rummaging around in it. The food and water was something she would move into her pack later, her main interest was bullets. She found what she was looking for eventually.

It had taken Kimiko a while but she felt comfortable with the gun. After a couple of mock firings, she had loaded it and was taking aim at a book she had balanced on a desk. She steadied her breathing and held the gun tight, then pulled the trigger. The recoil kicked the gun back in her hand and made her shoulder wound begin to burn straight away and the noise from the shot rang in her ears. When she looked at where the book had been she found papers floating to the floor instead.

She looked at the gun in her hand and nearly gagged. She knew what a gun was for and what it represented, but just like the nodachi and tantō she was planning to use it anyway. She swallowed the bile that was rising in her throat. She needed to keep moving forward. She took one last look back at Nancy's body. If she wanted to be generous and try to justify her actions she could have claimed that she killed Nancy to make sure that she didn't take any more lives. That it was necessary. But that wasn't entirely true.

The full truth was Nancy had a gun.

That had been her primary motivator.

The rest just helped her feel better.

Kimiko allowed Nancy to push her back and watched as she slowly slumped to the floor. Her heart was pounding due the noise of the gun going off. There had been no pain though so Nancy must have missed. She felt like she was going to throw up watching Nancy bleed.

She just had to wait now. Nancy would eventually pass on like Caleb had. Unlike Caleb Kimiko wouldn't mourn her, it was just something she had to do. If anything she was making sure Nancy wouldn't hurt anyone else for her own selfish desire to be remembered.

不安心
No, it wasn't good enough.

Kimiko had wanted to be remembered before she had ended up on the island but that felt like a different life. She had wanted to be remembered for doing something good but any chance she had of that happening. She looked at Nancy and then looked away wobbling her hand and shrugging. Playing up to the question and keeping the girls focus distracted while she dropped her other hand into her pocket and took hold of the tantō once more.

Truthfully Kimiko had been asking an honest question when she had asked Nancy her reason for killing She supposed she didn't have any moral high ground to judge the other girl. Not that it mattered at that point anyway.

Stepping forward and pulling the tantō free Kimiko stabbed twice with it. Just below the ribs, just like with Cristo.

Nancy's reason hadn't been good enough, but she could help her be remembered at least.

Finally Nancy lowered the gun, meaning Kimiko could finally relax and lower her hands. She tucked the tantō into her pocket and rubbed her eyebrow with the back of her other hand. Nancy seemed unsure about working together which didn't bother Kimiko any. If the announcements were to be believed Nancy didn't tend to think and acted on impulse anyway, she wouldn't have been a good partner.

It was time for part two of the plan. She had to get Nancy talking and relaxed. Her agreement to go along with the truce helped. Both of them could act in the knowledge that they were in no danger, unless someone else entered the library. But Kimiko assumed that unless the person who entered was extremely quiet they would be able to her them.

So Kimiko felt safe enough to continue with the conversation.

"Been thinking a lot about why I've done what I have." She started, waiting to see what Nancy's reaction would be. When there was no dissent she continued. "Then I thought about why others would choose to take the same path as me."

Still no immediately negative response.

"So why did you start killing?"

He's soft pushed people that have then flipped town all game. He's almost certainly scum.
So what you're saying is that unless my suspicions on people I find scummy are correct then that makes me scum?

Because that's how I'm reading your post.
No I'm saying softly pushing someone to cast doubt on them but not committing to it so that you have plausible deniability is scummy

If it means he actually contributes I'm fine leaving a vote on him.

Battle Royale Mafia Game Thread
I'm pretty sure Toxie is scum honestly but I'd still like to try and get some more info from the day phase.

Battle Royale Mafia Game Thread
Either of those two work for me. In fact since Toxie is likely getting mod killed.

Kimiko didn't enjoy the fact she was being asked so many questions. It meant she had to figure out how to communicate each time. In the end she settled for a mixture between the charades and the way she had communicated with Enzo for words that couldn't easily be summed up in a quick action. It left her tone clipped and sentences short and disjointed but it was better than nothing.

"Tired from fighting. No benefit."

She carefully watched Nancy as she spelt out the words. This wasn't like Enzo who was happy to give her as long as she needed. What Kimiko wouldn't have given for a piece of paper and a pen. The second part of her little speech was the part most likely to get her in trouble and provoke a reaction, but it was also the key part of her plan. If Nancy reacted positively and relaxed then it meant she could continue. If not...if she didn't react well Kimiko would cut her losses and run.

"Better to work together or leave each other be."

If we lynch Prim and she flips scum can I laugh my way to the bank?

Battle Royale Mafia Game Thread
Hmmm, only real solution I see to this problem is lynch of Prim or Espi today or hit decoy to ensure something and come back to this but we really don't want to give scum more time to muddy the waters.

Still leaning backslash is dumb, don't do that.
