Penelope stood still, blinking as Asuka rattled off about herself.

Penelope wasn't sure what exactly to say in response. "I uh... wow. That was a lot of stuff."

Penelope sat down in front of Asuka, the dust on the gym floor scattering out in multiple directions. "So... I don't think I can introduce myself as quickly as you did. Let's start slow. My name's Penelope, it's nice to meet you."

Penelope tapped her chin as she thought of things to say. "I play a lot of video games! Like making them too. The ones I made weren't... that good though. Pretty mediocre, actually. I'd offer to show them to you but... yeah... uh..."

Penelope shook her head. "Nevermind all that..." Penelope rubbed the back of her head, thinking. "Oh, wait, you said you draw, right? I draw too! Got a decent number of followers on Tumblr because they like my art..." She paused, frowning. She hadn't even considered her Tumblr followers. They knew her full name. It wouldn't take long for them to realize that she was caught up in this. Penelope bit her lip, looking away from Asuka and at the ground. She hoped they didn't feel too bad knowing that she was gone. The last thing she wanted was her death to make others sad.

Penelope looked back up at Asuka. "I uh... sorry about that. Anyway... if you want a little tidbit about myself. I sometimes have weird lucid dreams that last several nights in a row that tell like, a single story over the course of the different dreams." Penelope began fiddling with her bag's handle. "It's uh... kinda cool? Also kinda annoying when I get a dream that's not so fun."

"...And I guess that's all I really have to say about myself." Penelope finished. "I'm kind of boring, to be honest."

The two of them sat in silence for a few moments. Penelope's emotions started getting the better of her. The two of them were going to die. Two three-dimensional, one-of-a-kind, beautiful, yet flawed human beings were going to have their lives cruelly taken away before they were even allowed to begin. Penelope tried to hold back her tears, before a thought came to her.

"...Heh." Penelope sniffled. "What have we gotten ourselves into, huh?"

Penelope tried her best to chuckle. Barely even a joke, but humor was the only way she knew how to cope with things like this. "I guess... I guess the best thing to do would be to try and... I dunno, get out of here? See if we can gather other people up?" Penelope sniffled again. "I know I want to see my boyfriend, at least one last time. One last chance to be together..."
