The breath was sucked out of Hazel and she felt a lightening strike of pain through her abdomen, before suddenly meeting with the ground. Everything was silent for a moment and all Hazel could see was the moon shining down on them above the numerous silhouettes of tree branches.

This is it, huh? At least it was nice and quick, wasn't it? I didn't even know there was someone there. I didn't even have the time to be scared.

Noise crashed back through when she realized Min Jae was screaming. Her hands had reflexively gone up to her wound, trying in vain to keep the blood from leaking out. A light shined brightly on her and she blinked a few times, tears rolling over her cheeks.

"Don't do that," she said simply. Her voice came out a little more gravely than usual. "I'm tired of pretending things are ok." They'd finally hit the point where avoidance was no longer an option, though it probably would have been good if she would have reached this point before blood was pouring out of her. She didn't mean any harm by it, she just couldn't bring herself to say how things were most of the time out of consideration for others.

Her hands tingled and she couldn't feel much, which was probably for the best. Hazel shakily sat up, despite protests from Min.

She and Jordan had been spared from seeing the terrible things on the island and she wasn't going to break that. She also didn't want for Min to have to suffer the experience of watching her come to a slow end.

“Hey Jae,” she offered him a bright smile, and leaned in to brush her lips gently across his cheek. "Changed my mind. I forgive you." She shakily got to her feet.

With that she mustered all her strength to half run, half hobble past him into the dark.
