Lili turned around as fast as she could, almost hurting her neck in the process. There he was, in all his lack of glory, standing around with a smile on his face. He looked relatively dry.

"Where the fuck have you been?" Lili asked, pointing her finger right up at Darius' face, "And where's your 'crew' anyway? Don't tell me that I just wasted one of the last days of my life carting around a corpse so you could tell me there wasn't any point to it in the first place." She felt angrier than she knew she had any right to be. They had both left Natalie behind. They had both left all their gear behind. By this time, the hunting girl would've probably taken everything worth taking. Everything worth taking, including, probably, Natalie's life.

She was confused why she cared about Natalie all of a sudden. She hadn't felt any pangs of guilt when it came to leaving her.

Do you have a cigarette?

"If I had a cigarette, I wouldn't be half as pissed off as I am right now," she half-muttered, crossing her arms over her chest, "I...ugh."

Lili sighed.

"I spent the whole night, out in the rain, looking for you."

She raised a fist over her head and hit herself a few times.

"Stupid," She said, "Dumb, yes, I know. I haven't done much of anything worth doing these past few days. My last few days."

Did Darius want to hear any of what she had to say? Did Lili care if he did? If someone like, say, Asuka was around, she'd listen and listen, and then they'd hug it out like they did when things were normal, and everything would be alright, and they'd put on one of Lili's favorite Frank Zappa albums and Lili could go on and on and play along with her flute to each song while they laughed and felt everything was going to be alright-

"Do you want to go back to the library?" Lili blurted out, "I think we should go back to the library, right? We should. Definitely." She grabbed Darius by the wrist, her hand shaking. Her vision had gone from blurry to spotted with black. Her face was pale, and her back was crooked. Lili was on the verge of collapsing.

"Let's go," Lili said, pulling halfheartedly on his hand, "We have to...need to..."
