The two of them rejected her completely. Natalie was prepared for rejection, but she wasn't prepared for their tone. The boy, Ty, clearly had way more on his mind, and although Clarice was a bit more reasonable, she was also not in a good mood to talk.

Isn't there anyone on this place that's willing to cooperate for once?

Clarice mentioned something about there being four people before. Natalie didn't want to think about it, but the only logical way that conversation would go is that the other two may have...

died.

She didn't want to consider that possibility, despite Clarice implying it. Considering it meant accepting it, and that meant confirming Natalie's worries that people were out there and killing other people. She couldn't believe there would already be murderers in just a day. She didn't want to believe it.

Maybe they just had a fight, an argument, and left them? She wished that were true.

"Alright, okay. That's totally fine... I was just... y'know, just asking," she said as she raised both her hands up. She slowly walked back. They didn't look like they wanted to be bothered. Pressing them further might just make them angry. Clarice is bigger than Natalie, and could take her down easily. Ty could as well, probably.

Natalie could do it alone for now, again...

Another failed team-up. I guess it's what she got for not socializing much. The universe seemed keen to make her a solo drifter, which is not the best idea in a place like this. As she walked backwards and away from the two, she couldn't help but feel like her heartbeat continued to increase.

She thought the stress came from worrying about how Clarice and Ty would answer her request, but now she realized why. As she stepped back, out of the corner of her eye, she saw someone walk towards her. A boy at a steady pace, almost invisible until Natalie walked into his path. The same presence she felt a little while ago.

She stopped a bit and glanced at him, While she hadn't bumped into him, she didn't exactly want to bump into him.

"Oh, whoops. Uh... hey, sorry about that."

Shit. Why did she speak to him. He was obviously trying to ignore this whole situation. That's when she saw a knife of some kind on his hips. All that did was make Natalie freeze in slight fear, and her heartbeat increased.

Was this boy a threat? Following from what Ty said, she already thought of killers, and then this boy shows up with a knife, invisible. Trying to get a free kill maybe? No, he was ignoring them. The stress is making Natalie overthink things too much. Just play it cool.

"You, uh... headed across the bridge, too?" she asked sheepishly, not knowing if he would answer or not.
