If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Well this didn't look right.

Julie thought to herself with a frown as she stared about her unfamiliar surroundings. Having attempted to retrace her steps back to the barracks where Adam was likely waiting, Julie never expected accidentally taking a wrong turn and ending up somewhere...completely unfamiliar.

Looking up from the map she held in her hand, Julie blinked at the building standing before her. This seemed to be some sort of bathroom facility, it seemed. A showering area, to be exact. She tilted her head to the side. To be honest...what with the afternoon heat from yesterday and the day before, Julie thought it almost convenient,

...So long as there was running water, that is. Of that, Julie wasn't particularly optimistic.

Turning back to her immediate concerns, Julie looked over her shoulder, eyes darting back towards the vegetation somewhat nervously. While she had been trekking through the jungle, she could have sworn that she had heard footfalls just behind her...

Though it was probably her imagination, Julie wasn't about to take any chances.

Julie looked towards the building.

Well it seemed safe enough...

As much as Julie felt much braver with her new weapon, she honestly didn't see the need to take any unnecessary risks. What was the adage, Julie wondered. Discretion is the better part of valour?

She couldn't see an entrance from here...Julie realized, she must be standing at the back of the building.

A stack of crates were piled below a thin window slot above the wall, wide open. Ascending the crates carefully, after making sure they looked sturdy enough, Julie peered through the window.

...

Well there didn't seem to be anything in there, but the lighting was poor, and so was the view from this position. Nevertheless, Julie placed the submachine gun into her daypack and pushed it through the window. She followed after, working her body feet-first through the window and leaping down onto the tiled floor.

...

She looked about at what to appeared to be an open showering area, completely deserted. Cautiously and quietly, she began to step further inside, her shoes making slight scratching noises against the smooth tiled floor.

Well here at least she would be able to rest a bit. It was significantly cooler inside, that was for sure. Not that she would stay here long. She had to get back to Adam...

Her thoughts were halted as she froze mid-step just past the doorway that lead into the room of bathroom stalls.

The floors and walls were stained with red, and a body that was completely unrecognizeable lay near the entrance, flesh torn and mangled, its head ripped off.

Julie felt her body grow numb as her eyes widened at the sight, feeling her mind recoil in horror in spite of all she'd already seen thus far. It was unspeakable, an abomination beyond words, what had been done to this student's body... Julie couldn't even tell whether it was a boy or a girl...or if it was even human...

She immediately backed away, turning towards a corner, throwing up. Clutching her knees, her eyes were clenched shut, but all she could see was the mutilated corpse in the vision of her mind. Chest heaving, she breathed heavily, wiping her mouth, feeling a cold sweat running down her paling skin.

Someone please tell me I didn't see that...

She remained in that slightly crouched position for a while, facing the corner, fighting to calm down. Her limbs were stiff and seized up from the terror. Knowing that all she wanted was to get out of there as soon as possible, she struggled to relax.

Coming here was a mistake...

As she took in deep, gulping breaths, Julie remained unbeknownst to the ominous presence behind her, until the shots rang out. In an instant, she swirled around, reaching for her pack, only to realize that she had left it inside the showering area.

But that wasn't what she was worried about right now. As she looked in front of her, Julie stared in shock at the naked figure, soaked in blood, unrecognizeable as either man or woman.

Like the corpse that lay in the corner, this person was barely recognizeable as a human...

Her mind started to race. Who died...? Julie thought to herself. Who died in the showers...? Think Julie! THINK!

"K-Karl Van Buren..." She stuttered slightly, looking towards the corpse. Julie shook her head...even if she had known the boy's face, she doubted she would have recognized him in the state he was in.

Brilliant detective work, Ms. Mikan, and now for the million dollar question... who killed him? Who killed Karl...?

....Julie's mind froze in a panic, her back against the corner. Who was it...? Julie knew the answer! It was...it was a name she'd written on her list.

The list she made of the people that she was to kill on first sight...

Gabriel....Theobaldt? No, that wasn't right. Gabriel, from what Adam had described, was a giant, and if five foot seven inches of a half-man were enough to call him a giant, Julie would probably be some sort of titan. But if not Gabriel, then who...? Karl died because his neck was snapped...not because he was mutilated. Likely this person, whoever he was...mangled the body AFTER Karl died...? Who could possibly be capable of such behaviour...?

Only one name came to Julie's mind...

Nathanial Harris...?

Was it...was it this person? Julie couldn't believe otherwise... it could easily be just some other insane person. But what if it were him? Julie couldn't imagine the position she was in right now... standing in the same room with a sadist and a killer...

Her throat tightened as she backed away, chest filled to the brim with pure, unadulterated terror. To think that she'd recieved a submachine gun of all things as a weapon and she didn't even have it near her when she needed it the most! He was coming at her now! What could she do? Her hands felt empty...naked... she was completely unarmed....

Save for the knife that Adam gave her.

She had kept it safely in her pocket after she'd left the barracks, and more than ever she was grateful that she had kept it with her. Even more grateful that Adam had let her have it in the first place.

Of course, I'll thank him later... AFTER I get out of here. Julie thought to herself, grimly setting her eyes towards the blood-covered monstrosity before her, a gaping wound in his side. As he moved towards her, she extracted the knife from her pocket and lunged forward, extending the blade and pointing it downwards in an attempt to stab him directly in the face.

"....Says the guy with the knife stuck in his face." Julie muttered coldly at the fallen corpse on the ground.

Feeling absolutely nothing whatsoever, Julie forcefully removed the knife from the eye socket it had been embedded into. Flicking the blade once to get rid of the excess blood, she closed the switchblade and placed it back into her pocket, turning her back towards the two corpses on the ground.

As she reached for her pack, she couldn't help but feel a sense of wonder...amazement almost. Owen's death had been hard on her the moment she realized what she had done.

This time? Julie realized, she didn't feel a thing. Perhaps it was due to the fact that she'd likely done away with someone who was completely deranged. A sadist, or probably a cold-blooded killer. That was probably enough to make her feel less than sorry about taking a life. Then again, it could also be that....

...

Julie slung the daypack over her shoulder, pausing for a moment to listen to the silence that had befallen the facitility.

Guess that's what they mean by getting used to the flow of things. Maybe I'm getting used to this game. To this whole...killing thing.

Sure, it meant that she would be less likely to break down every time she killed someone, which had already been proven to be inevitable, really. She'd have more fortitude, mentally, and she would have an idea of what to expect in a similar situation.

But still...was it really a good thing?

Julie didn't have time to ponder this question. She quickly headed towards the exit, skirting both corpses as she did so, giving them a wide berth. She also picked up the butterfly sword as she did so. She had to get back to Adam, and she didn't want to remain here any longer than she needed to.

As she retreated, her back facing the building, she affirmed to herself,

Coming here...was definately a mistake.
