Maddy was frantic after leaving the sawmill. Her body was on auto pilot, taking her away from the latest scene of her adventure on this island. One that ended in someone dying. And it was her fault they died. Sure, she had killed before, but this time was different. The first time she was just defending herself, not to mention that Jarocki kid was a creep. This time, she had no such excuse. Not to mention he was friends with the one person she had been so desperately trying to find on this island. Now she had nothing. No doubt as soon as he name was called on those announcements Violet would be out for her blood.

In her mindless wanderings, Maddy found herself in the residential district. She wasn't sure what brought her here, but it was getting dark, so maybe finding somewhere to rest would be a good idea. Lord knows how long it had been since she was able to sleep on a bed. Pushing any thoughts of Trent or Violet or anything like that into the back of her mind, Maddy began to walk through the darkened and silent streets. One particular house caught her attention however. Namely, the one with the light.

Maddy stopped walking for a moment, looking at the illuminated house. Well, to say it was illuminated was probably exaggerating. It was more dimly lit in a single point. Chances were there was someone in there. She didn't know if they were friendly or not, and logic told her she really should just stay away. Another part of her just wanted to be able to reach out to someone and find comfort. Or maybe pick the wrong person and die. She wasn't sure if she deserved to live anymore anyway. It was this more than anything that caused Maddy to step inside that building.

Maddy instinctively ducked when she heard the gunfire, scrambling to get behind cover. Thankfully she was right next to the door, which meant cover was easy to find. Part of her was kicking herself for falling into such an obvious trap, but she quickly shoved that thought aside. Deep down she knew that something like this was bound to happen. The question now was what to do.

Someone was out there, and that someone had just tried to shoot her. Maddy's natural reaction would have been to fire back in return, but after her incident with Trent, she wanted to avoid that at all cost. She didn't need more blood on her hands. Maybe they could talk it out, see if the issue could be resolved without anyone dying. Then again, that didn't work so well either.

Maddy breathed slowly, trying to get her nerves in check. She needed a way out, and fast. Eventually she just decided to try talking. It was better than the alternative. "I... I don't want t-to fight!" the girl yelled from behind her cover, hoping just maybe her assailant would have a change of heart or something.

Maddy didn't know what to say in response to the girl's reasoning. Everything she said made complete sense. The chances of being saved were slim to none at this point, and it was a well known fact that you were set free if you won. On some level, Maddy knew that was why she was still trying to survive. At some point she was going to have to set aside her morals or whatever it was she was clinging to in order to keep herself sane on this island and kill someone else. She'd already done it twice.

Fortunately, or unfortunately as it would turn out, the announcements came on. She felt her chest tighten as her name was called, and even more so when the location of their little stand off was declared a dangerzone. Now he concern wasn't so much the other girl, it was getting out of where she currently was and being safe. Of course, the fact she was thinking this while someone was threatening to kill her was somewhat surreal to say the least.

"L-look...." Maddy found herself saying. She needed to do something here. "This place.... is go-going to be a dangerzone soon. I-I know you don't want to die. And um... neither do I. S-so maybe we could.... could call a truce. Either w-we both leave, or uhhhh.... neither of us do."

Maddy sighed with relief when the girl took her offer. She wasn't exactly ready to die yet, so it was nice someone was still reasonable around here. She heard the other girl run off, and after a couple of minutes Maddy followed suit, going as fast as her fatigued body took her.
