Isabel opened her eyes, morning light peering in through the window.

She sat up, getting her bearings on everything around her. It was some time before the announcements, since they hadn't woken her up, and the objects in the room was completely undisturbed from when she had gone to sleep. Lily and Cass were nowhere to be found. Isabel wondered if Lily had finally lost her composure and run off, feeling the slightest twinge of regret at the thought of being alone yet again.

Isabel sighed and unzipped her bag, yanking out one of her calorie bars and a water bottle before munching away. The smell from the dead body made eating difficult for her, but she nonetheless made the effort to choke down the food. She needed the energy and nutrients to keep herself strong for the coming days.

She got up from where she was, still munching on the bar, before opening the door and glancing out into the hallway. Lily was sitting outside, seemingly not having moved from where she had been when Isabel went to sleep, and Isabel silently sighed a sigh of relief. Lily didn't even look in Isabel's direction, instead she simply clutched that notepad that she kept on her at all times tightly in her hands. Isabel occasionally wondered what Lily was writing down every morning, but ultimately didn't care all that much. They both just needed to know their respective places in their partnership, nothing more, nothing less. She shut the door behind her and left Lily to her devices, before sitting back down on the couch.

The announcements once again came on as they did each morning, just after she finished off her calorie bar. They announced the deaths of the day, which Isabel once again didn't pay attention to, and announced someone else as winning the best kill award once again. It was something Isabel expected at this point, as it seemed that someone in charge obviously had it out for her.

She shook her head, doing her best to repress her agitation at having lost BKA for the cameras, before leaning her head back against the couch, staring at the ceiling, contemplating anything that came to mind.

It didn't take her long to get bored.

Standing up and hoisting her bag over her shoulder, Isabel pushed the door open and bluntly told Lily that they were going.
