"Okay."

She spoke so low there was no way Lily heard her.

The walls of the room were closing in. Her legs shook, knees buckling under an invisible weight on her shoulders. Her breath was becoming shallow. She wanted to scream.

Jasmine Reed was on the verge of a meltdown and she didn't know it.

She was afraid to be alone. Maybe she couldn't trust Lily or even Coleen, but at least she knew they weren't going to stab her in the back right out of the gate! At least she knew who they were. At least she knew they were there. The anxiety she felt about Lily leaving, and so soon after Coleen ran away, was on the same level as the glass shard and the blood, possibly even more so. She didn't know why, it just was.

She was more afraid of being judged. Lily must think Jasmine is a nutcase, that must be why she's leaving. Jasmine couldn't run after her and ASK to come along, Lily will think she's clingy. She'll think Jasmine is a goddamned creeper. And the last thing Jasmine wanted, even on Murder Island, was to look like a creeper.

Her hand trembled. Agitation, anxiety, humiliation, so many feelings prickling her skin and lacing her veins, her thoughts were so loud she couldn't hear her mout. God she was such a fucking baby, for Christ's sake don't cry Jasmine please don't cry.

"Gosh,Jazzy. Don't cry. Everything's okay you knucklehead. Don't cry."

... Jasmine was on the brink, standing over the edge, her shit nearly lost. But she found a pocket of air, a life preserver. Her lost friend. The only person in her life who has always been there for her.

Caitlyn.

"... Hey. Lily, wait."

Jasmine made it to the library counter, catching Lily before she could leave. She waved to Lily, flagging to her, hoping that she wouldn't just ignore her.

"Thanks," Jasmine said. Her throat felt scratchy. "I'll see you later, okay?

...To her credit, Jasmine sounded genuine, and her smile was earnest. But if Lily wanted to know what Jasmine was thanking her for... Well. You don't always get what you want.
