((Marion Summers continued from Walk On Water Or Drown))

Marion bit back a yawn as she made her way towards the Hall of Mirrors. She wasn’t sure why exactly she was heading that way, but it was a goal, a place to focus on when coming down from the mountain. Now that she stood in the shadow of the building she took a moment to wonder just what in the world it was doing here. What was this island for? Why build an amusement park right smack in the middle of it? Marion frowned realizing that it looked like no fun house she’d ever seen before and it took her a moment to figure out that somehow she’d ended up at the back of the building.

She bit her lip absently as she decided what to do. Maybe going in the back would give her a chance to hide, get some shut eye. Something she still hadn’t managed to do. Decision made she made her way to the door and pulled it open. She stuck her head in and seeing no one in the immediate vicinity stepped in. She squinted trying to figure out the best way to navigate the maze she found herself in. Picking a direction, she followed it, finally discovering a set of stairs. She climbed the stairs cautiously and had just managed to get comfortable when she heard voices downstairs.

"Whoever's in here, come out with your hands up!"

Marion made a quick decision to stay put. As far as she knew, no one knew she was here. Whoever it was could just be taking a shot in the dark. Instead she opened her bag and pulled out a bottle of water. If she stayed quiet maybe he’d just go away and leave her in peace.

Marion heard the voices below and decided to retreat a little further onto the second floor. She'd taken about two steps when she realized maybe this wasn't the best plan. There was large chunks of...well she really didn't want to think about what was lying among the broken pieces of wood and nails. She bit her lip as she tried to decide what to do. It sounded like the people below were hunting for her, although how they knew where she was, was a mystery. She hadn't seen anyone as she'd come in, maybe it was a different girl. Deciding she couldn't get away without being seen, she figured she might as well stay put and roll with the punches. Resuming her seat on the top step, she leaned forward, straining with her ears to try and figure out what was happening below.

Marion shrunk back as the five shots rang out. She stiffled a scream and stepped back into the destroyed upstairs. She didn't want to, but it was better than going down where the shooting was. She hoped that no one had been hurt, but given their situation she doubted it. Marion chastized herself for not going towards the shots. What kind of reporter did that make her? She couldn't gather all the facts from up here. Of course, hopefully no one would be able to find her up here. Which meant that she was an alive reporter. She started to replay what she had heard in an attempt to calm herself down.

"Oh please, don't let them come up here," she whispered softly.

Marion swallowed as a girl appeared at the top of the stairs. Two gunshots followed her, scattering the wood doorframe across the room as the rounds impacted. Marion flinched as a boy followed, with a shotgun in his hand. It took her a moment to identify Rhory and Bill. He looked determined and Marion made a split second decision to intervene on Rhory’s behalf.

“What are you doing waving that gun around? There aren’t any bullets left in it?” she stated confidently.

Bill turned to look at her momentarily confused by the appearance of another person. “What?”

“You don’t have any shells left, you’ve fired eight already,” Marion said stepping forward. She raised her hand and raised her fingers as she talked. “There were three in the first volley, then a pause and another three. Then there were two as Rhory came up the stairs. That’s three plus three plus two, for a total of eight. You’re out.”

Marion wasn’t exactly sure how many bullets or shots or whatever it was his gun held, but it seemed to have stopped him in his tracks, so she did her best not to look at all intimidated by the gun.

“No, there were only two shots in the second volley,” Bill said. “So that makes the count seven. Three plus two plus two.”

Marion bit her lip as she considered his math. “No, you’re wrong it was definitely eight. Three and three and then two.”

Bill seemed to consider this for a moment and then to Marion’s surprise turned the gun on her and fired.

“See,” Bill said smugly. "I told you it was only seven. Three plus TWO plus two...plus one.”

Marion didn’t hear the last comment or even live long enough to realize that she was wrong. The shot tore through her heart, killing her instantly. Her body collapsed to the ground, her face frozen in surprise.
