Snap.

((Reiko Ishida continued from The Right Thing For The Wrong Reasons))

Reiko was, to put it simply, pissed off. Over the course of the day, she had run into nothing but idiots, and the only person she had met so far that was even remotely friendly had been with an overbearing sister. She continued to press on, her feet protesting slightly. When was the last time she had walked for a considerable amount of time? Usually she would be roller blading if she had to go any great distance. Oh well, at least she was in shape, so it wasn't so bad.

As the girl walked, she idly caught the chain hanging out of her pocket, tugging the leather wallet out. It was a simple wallet, black leather with a chain attached to it, which in turn was clipped onto one of her belt loops. It was kept closed by a single metal clasp, which Reiko popped open with her thumb. Inside was some money, which was now useless, some plastic cards, also useless now, and a series of three wallet sized pictures, one behind the other behind a thin sheet of plastic. The first picture, which was the only one visible, was an old, tattered picture of her and her sister from when they were 16. Reiko was holding the large trophy she had won in her figure skating contest, while Reika had in her hands a much smaller, but just as impressive plaque she was awarded for passing her final level in piano. Reiko smiled fondly at the memory of that day, which quickly turned into her wondering where Reika was. She was starting to get worried.

Closing the wallet again, Reiko slipped it back into her pocket. She knew what she had to do. Reika was out there still. Probably alone, probably crying. Reika was so kind. She didn't deserve to be in this situation. None of them did. It just wasn't fair. Who was this Danya fucker to decide their fates? No, Reiko wasn't going to go down quietly. She was going to find Reika. She would find Sarah. She would find Paige, Carol, Amber, Ben, and Jacob. They would find a way out of this, together. Sarah would figure something out. She was probably already working on a plan. Which meant it was Reiko's job to find the others and gather. She would do anything it takes to find and protect her friends.


Anything....

Reiko's attention was caught by someone calling out. Her head snapped towards the source of the sound, and the small girl rolled her eyes. Just another idiot looking for companionship. Well, she didn't plan on sticking around this time. If there was one thing she had learned, it was that someone would invariably find their way to her, making her life even more difficult. It was best to stop the problem before it started.

"I don't give a damn who you are." Reiko said, sounding a little harsher than she intended, but she didn't care. Hopefully this one would get the message the first time. "And I don't give a damn about your problems either, so you can just save it."

Without even letting the other girl, who had introduced herself as Cyrille, say anything more, Reiko continued to walk in the direction she had been going. Just once she wanted to find someone who wasn't desperately crying for attention. Which at this point, had more or less been everyone she had met. Eventually she was bound to find someone who she was looking for. She could hope at least.

(all GMing from this point on is approved)

Reiko hadn't gotten more than a couple feet before the other girl had come up behind her and placed a hand on her shoulder. This turned out to be a bad move on Cyrille's part. Reiko had been in a bad mood before, and as soon as the other girl placed her hand on the small girl's shoulder, Reiko finally lost her temper. Completely oblivious to what the other girl was saying, the tiny girl spun on her heel and shoved Cyrille as hard as she could.

Cyrille fell over hard, her hat falling off her head. "I told you to just fucking leave me alone!" Reiko yelled at the grounded girl, her face contorted in anger. She had never been more angry in her life until that moment, and she wanted nothing more to just kick the poor girl right then and there. She decided against this course of action however. Instead she just turned away.

Reiko began to walk again, this time at a much faster pace. Maybe this time the annoying bitch got the message, and would stay on the ground. She was tired of everyone trying to take something from her, and she had enough. In her anger, she didn't even notice the hat had fallen in her path, and as she walked away, her left foot crushed the poor accessory into the ground.

Reiko felt her feet give way under her, then suddenly she was laying on her back on the ground. It took a moment for her to figure out just what happened, and by then Cyrille had mounted her, punching her in the face. Out of instinct, Reiko covered her face with her arms, but she could already feel something trickling down near her eyebrow. One of the hits had lacerated the skin just above her eyes, and it was now bleeding. Cyrille had snapped, and the larger girl just kept hitting Reiko, although the impacts of the punches were lessened now that she had put her arms up.

She needed to act fast, before this girl beat her to death. Reiko had never been in a situation like this before, but she knew she wasn't going to just sit there and take it. Without even thinking, Reiko's hand shot out, clawing at Cyrille's face. her index finger found the girl's eyes, and without thinking, the smaller girl jabbed hard with her finger, causing a howl of pain to come from Cyrille. It was dirty, but it was effective. Taking advantage of the moment, Reiko was able to slip Cyrille off her.

Still on the ground, but now free of the weight of the other girl, Reiko got up to a sitting position. Adrenaline was coursing through her veins, dulling the slight throb in her ribs. Cyrille was beside her on the ground, clutching at her face. She didn't even think about what she was doing. Removing the sai that was hanging off her belt, Reiko jumped onto the girl's back, forcing her face first into the ground. Holding the weapon in her tiny hands, she brought the point down hard with a yell of exertion, not caring where it went, just as long as it found it's home in the bitch who attacked her. No one was going to attack her and get away with it.

The point of her weapon buried itself into Cyrille's back, the pained screams from the other girl snapping Reiko out of her momentary rage. Her breathing was heavy, not to mention painful. She felt like her ribs were at least bruised, if not worse. She slowly pulled the sai out of the girl's back, who had momentarily stopped moving. Was she dead? Reiko wasn't sure how to feel at that moment. She was just defending herself after all, and she had said she would do whatever it took. She hadn't done the wrong thing.

Reiko was suddenly and violently thrown off Cyrille, landing on her side beside the injured girl. She clutched the sai in her hand, waiting for the other girl to lunge at her with a sudden burst of energy, but she didn't move after that. Reiko let out a breath she hadn't known she was holding. The adrenaline was starting to ebb away, the pain in her head and ribs becoming intensified. She knew right off the bat she didn't have a concussion, she had experienced those enough times in the past to know that. the cut on her forehead hurt, but she could deal with that later.

One thing she knew for sure was she needed to get away. Get away from the crazy girl who had attacked her. The one who now lay motionless beside her, her breathing shallow. The one who she had stabbed. It hurt too much to stand, so Reiko opted simply to crawl to her bags, the bloody sai clutched in her left hand. She had to keep moving, before anyone else came on the scene. She didn't need them to think she was a killer.

It hadn't taken long for someone else to show up, and Reiko cursed herself for not acting quicker. Even worse, the voice that had called out was by and far the last one she wanted to hear at that moment. Sally Connelly hated Reiko, and the sentiment was returned in kind by the smaller girl. They were never friendly to say the least, but Reiko used to have some form of respect for the other girl. After all, they were both in the same sport, and Sally was a damn good figure skater. Ever since Reiko beat her that one time though, she had made it her goal to make life a living hell for the small girl.

"Fuck you, I don't need anyone to tell me that." Reiko said in response to Sally's comment. She didn't know what the blonde girl was thinking, and quite frankly, she didn't care. Sally was a vindictive bitch, and no doubt was probably trying to just get Reiko to drop her guard. Well it wasn't going to happen. Reiko continued to crawl towards her bag, quite deliberate in her movements. Her back would be turned to Sally, but she didn't care. Sally wouldn't try anything. She may be dumb, but she wasn't dumb enough to try and attack her. Reaching her bag, Reiko released the bloody sai, and began to start collecting her things.

Reiko tried to ignore Sally as she walked towards her, spouting words of encouragement and something about being allies. Reiko wasn't interested. If there was anyone she wouldn't trust to watch her back, it was the bitch Sally. The small girl continued to collect her stuff, but then stopped when Sally put her hands on her shoulders. Reiko wasn't sure what was about to happen, but she felt that it wouldn't be good.

....“But I’m not going to.”....

At this moment, Reiko quickly grasped for her sai, but it was too late. Sally wrenched her head up by her hair, and in the next moment, something cold and metal wrapped around her throat. Sally was pulling on the necklace as hard as she could, cutting of the air way of the smaller girl's throat. Reiko tried to grab at the chain, trying to get a finger between the metal and her neck, but to no avail.

Reiko could feel herself fading as her oxygen starved body began it's protest. The attempts to alleviate the pressure on her neck became less and less frequent as her arms started to fail. So this was it. This was how Reiko Ishida was going to die? Was she just going to roll over and let someone else take her life? As Reiko's vision began to black out, she was assaulted with memories. Memories of her family, her friends, Sarah.... Every reason why she couldn't die. She still had a job to do. She needed to protect everyone that was close to her. She wasn't ready to die.

With a sudden burst, Reiko slammed her head back, connecting with the other girl's chin. It hurt Reiko like a bitch, but it also achieved the goal of Sally loosening her grip. Taking the opportunity, the smaller girl slipped through the other girl's legs, out of the grip Sally's necklace. Reiko coughed harshly as sweet air entered her lungs, giving her a new burst of energy. Sally, who had recovered from the initial blow, turned angrily on Reiko. Not wanting to give the bitch a second chance, Reiko lashed out with her foot, kicking as hard as she could. The blow landed on Sally's knee forcefully, and Reiko took this moment to scramble back to her things on her hands and knees, picking up the bloody sai and getting ready to defend herself again.

Cyrille's intervention was unexpected, but more than welcome to Reiko. She didn't understand why the injured girl had decided to do so, but it gave the small girl the chance she needed. Sally focused her attention on the other girl, leaving herself completely exposed. Reiko gripped the sai in her left hand, watching as the blonde girl brutally kicked Cyrille in the face, later bringing a violin (her weapon?) to bear, slamming it into the fingers of the hands gripping around her leg.

Reiko wasn't sure if she could bring herself to do it. With Cyrille, it had been in the heat of the moment, the adrenaline guiding her movements. This time, it would be a complete conscious decision on her part. Sally continued to attack Cyrille, who was doggedly hanging on. Her face and hands were being brutalized, and yet she was still determined to help Reiko, the girl who had probably fatally injured her.

Something about the situation forced Reiko to move into action. Cyrille was more or less helpless, and Sally was still mercilessly brutalizing her. Sai in hand, Reiko stood up momentarily before lunging at the blonde girl. With a quick scream, Reiko buried the point of the weapon into the first part of Sally's body she saw. The sai lodged itself into the girl's throat, brutally cutting off her final words.

Reiko remained in her position, kneeling over Sally as the blonde girl struggled feebly before finally remaining still. The smaller girl's hand dropped away from the weapon, and she took a deep breath. She had done it. She had made a conscious decision to take another person's life.

The girl didn't get a chance to think about it any more before a voice cut the silence. A boy was running towards them, obviously focused on Cyrille. Reiko recognized him as Garry, whom she had seen around at the skating rink before. His presence signaled to the Asian girl that it was time for her to leave.

Reiko didn't even bother with the sai that she had used to kill Sally with. She had another one, so it wasn't a big loss. Despite the injuries that Reiko had received in her two brief confrontations, the girl managed to get to her feet. Grabbing her bags and slinging them over her shoulder, Reiko broke into a run, getting as much distance between herself and the unpleasant scene behind her.

((Reiko Ishida continued in It's A New Day))
