((Alex Jackson continued from Fucking Compasses...How do they work? ))

Alex entered the Hall of Mirrors behind Jessica. So far there had been very little sign that Roman was there. It was an outside chance to begin with that he was still here. They’d decided to check inside, just to make certain that he wasn’t here. She walked inside, pulling her flashlight from her duffle bag. Flipping it on she was captivated by how the mirrors sent the light bouncing around. She flipped it from one mirror to another watching how it reflected across the hall. She smiled, until Jessica shouted. Sighing, she rounded the corner and looked at her friend expectantly. “What?”

"Uhh..." Jessica muttered, shining her flashlight on Alex. "He - Roman might still be around. S...Should we wait here for him? Maybe go look for him? U-Umm, this place is pretty big, he could be hiding."

“I’m totally waiting here, at least until it gets crowded. For once there’s no one else around. I might actually get some breakfast, and maybe some sleep without worrying about getting shot. Besides like you said we haven’t explored everywhere. Is this place cool or what? I love the way that the light reflects,” she said once again sending the light beams reflecting off in all directions.

She tilted her head trying to figure out Jessica’s expression. Did the girl pity her? Really? Alex thought it a weird sentiment considering she’d been mostly optimistic up to this point. So far both she and Roman had survived three days, and this news was at least pointing her in the right direction.

((Pays no attention to the woman behind the mask))

“It’s quiet in here” she said softly.

"I know isn't it great. I'm thinking I might actually catch a nap," she said yawning. "But first I think I'm going to investigate further, there's gotta be stairs somewhere around here."

She pushed further into the hall. "You know Jess, I was thinking," she called over her shoulder. "Isn't this kind of weird? I mean what kind of island are we on? There was a town here and obviously logging of some kind, but why build an amusement park? And where'd all the people go? Seriously, could they have picked a more horror movie setting to stick us on?" Alex was rambling and she knew it, something about the way Jess had commented on the quiet made Alex think that she didn't enjoy it as much as Alex had. So Alex took it upon herself to fill the silence, saying whatever came into her head.

She continued moving slowly, scanning back and forth with the flashlight. Occasionally, she shone it in the mirrors watching it scatter across the mirrors. She almost missed it, but finally she found a circular staircase. "Hey Jess, I found it. Wanna come explore upstairs with me. It'd give as a better vantage point if nothing else."

"Sup?" Julian looked the two (just two) over, hands and his pockets and a calm expression. Oh, that dashing rogue. "Alex and... Jess, right?"

Alex stopped at the top of the stairs, surprised that someone else was here and was just now getting around to introducing himself. She’d been making more than enough noise downstairs. What exactly was he waiting for? She looked again and realized it was Julian Avery. Julian who Danya just announced had killed someone. Okay, easy take a deep breath, she told herself. Danya mentioned something about it being justified, and he doesn’t seem to have a weapon out at the moment. Although there goes my plans for a nap, there’s no way am I gonna bed down with a killer in my midst.

"H-Hey..." She blinked, looking over at Alex for reassurance. "That's... what my parents call me. You're Julian right?"

Alex rolled her eyes, she couldn’t help herself. That’s the line you come up with. She watched Jess raise and then lower her weapon, and figured that the girl probably didn’t remember the announcements as clearly as she did. Maybe she just wasn’t listening as closely as Alex had been. Alex stood for a moment longer trying to decide what to do, after her encounter with the boys in the felled forest maybe her traditional approaches weren’t the best. She frowned and then shrugged.

“Hey, Julian, what’s up,” she asked casually hoping that keeping the boy at ease would limit the chance of him attacking them. “You come up here to hide out for a while too?”

Alex took a step back, she was all for pretending she didn’t know what had happened, but he just announced it. How many more people was he planning on announcing it to? Would she and Jessica be lumped into that same category if they were still with him? Besides she still had Roman to look for and right now that seemed like a much safer option then hanging out with a murder.

"You know," Jessica paused, "if," her eyes darted away and she paused again, "there was one person I would be willing to kill myself," her eyes returned to Julian, "it was Omar. So yeah... I'm glad that asshole is dead."

Alex gaped at Jessica, she would willingly kill people?!? Alex had joked about it, heck even threatened her brother with it, but she’d never seriously considered it before.

Then Jessica looked over at Alex and stated the obvious. "... he's good Alex. I don't think we need to worry."

He’s good? Why because he happened to kill someone you don’t like? What if he comes after me next Jess, would that still be okay with you? Alex shook her head. “You know that’s great, but I’m still you know looking for Roman and so far he’s not here. So you know I’m gonna head back downstairs and do another search. I get the feeling he’s in trouble for some reason,” Alex said in a rush and then made her way back down the stairs and out of the building, stopping only to collect her things.
