((Reiko Ishida continued from Camping Out))

It didn't take very long for Reiko to make her way to the town center from her last location. The center didn't look all that different from the rest of the small town, save for the centerpiece in the middle. From a distance the statue looked nice enough, though upon closer inspection the graffiti and faults in the stone were more apparent. Who knew just how long this statue had been out there, exposed to the elements. There were more houses surrounding the center, but Reiko wasn't planning on going into one of them just yet.

There were, of course, bodies laying around. This wasn't exactly news to Reiko. She was barely even bothered by the smell of rotting corpses by this point, and the sight of them made her indifferent at best. Not like she had much reason to complain about them, having contributed so many to the number herself.

The girl began to move around the centerpiece, keeping an eye on her surroundings as she did so. The last thing she needed at this point was to get shot in the back while admiring a statue of a naked woman. It seemed like she was looking at a lot of those lately. In any case her attention was caught by the fact there was another person sitting in the flowerbed in front of what she was looking at. Reiko made no move towards her weapons, though she knew where they were if she needed them.

"Hi." she said to the other girl, seeing what kind of response she would get.

((OOC: for the sake of timeline, I'm not going to be acknowledging Ema in this post)

Reiko stood in place for a moment after the other girl's offer, before nodding her head and taking a seat beside her. It was nice to find someone who wasn't immediately aggressive, especially so late into the game. There couldn't have been more than a dozen of them left, possibly even less by this point. In any case she was there, sitting with someone who for all she knew was planning on killing her later.

She glanced at the other girl, trying to place her name. She had seen her around before, quite often in fact. Reiko felt like she should know her name, but just couldn't quite place it. The girl was almost certain she should know it, it just wasn't coming to her. Oh well, it was certain to come up in conversation eventually. Or not.

After a moment, Reiko reached into her bag, pulling out the chocolate from Sarah she had been eating for the last few days. Despite the heat, it was still mostly intact, though it had begun to melt around the edges. She broke off another bit, popping it into her mouth. "Chocolate?" she said to the other girl, offering her the package.

Reiko's first instinct upon hearing the voice of yet another person was to reach for the pistol tucked into her belt. She managed to stop herself once she saw what a sorry state the newcomer was in. Besides, with it's location, it was hidden from view and still easily accessible in case this girl ended up being dangerous. Even if she was, she was hardly in shape to fight.

Her companion was the first to speak up, and this was perfectly fine with Reiko. She wasn't exactly the talking type, so having someone else to talk instead of her was a nice change. The girl seemed to get the message, and began to walk away. If you could even call it walking. With those injuries Reiko would be surprised if she lasted to the end of the day.

The she turned around, asking about the announcements, if anything of importance was said. There were a few things worth mentioning, namely about the girl who had apparently killed a bunch of people. Reiko had her doubts that whoever committed those was going to be in any decent shape to fight. You don't kill that many in a day without taking some serious damage....

Reiko's face tensed slightly, but she didn't move very much. Her hand shifted ever so slightly towards her back, not enough to be noticeable. If she had put two and two together properly, then the two of them could be in serious trouble right now. At least, as much trouble as a one-eyed one-legged girl could give them.

Reiko's eyes didn't move from the girl until she was out of sight, and even then she made sure to keep a look out in case they decided to come back and kill them while they weren't looking. In the end she didn't have anything to worry about though, and the two of them were alone again. She moved her hand back away from her gun, placing it back on her lap and saying nothing.

The silence was broken by her companion, who introduced herself. This was good for Reiko, since she didn't have to ask and make herself look like a fool. Reiko nodded a few times, committing the name to memory. Kimberly then continued the conversation, mentioning the chocolate.

"Oh yeah, here you go." Reiko said, holding the chocolate out for the other girl. There was about a quarter of the bar remaining, but she had another one in her bag. "You can have the rest of this one if you'd like."

Reiko couldn't help but smile when Kimberly took the chocolate. After so long fighting for her life, it was kind of refreshing to hear something as simple as a thank you. If they pretended hard enough, maybe they could believe themselves to be on a little picnic or something. Just so long as you ignored the dead bodies and the fact they were holding weapons. Reiko nodded her head in response, leaning back a bit on her hands.

There was a moment of silence, then Kimberly asked how she was doing. This brought a small laugh to the girl. "Oh you know, lost my sister, killed some people, watched my girlfriend escape while I was left behind. The usual stuff." That she could even manage something even remotely classified as humour probably said something about her mental health, but at this point she'd have been more concerned if she wasn't feeling something.

"We must be getting down to the wire, huh?" Reiko found herself saying. The last announcement had said there were only a dozen or so of them left, and she could be amazed if there was still that amount left. At some point her and Kimberly would probably have to face each other. Or at the very least, one of them would have to die. It was an inevitability that they would have to face sooner rather than later. For now though she was content with the civility between them.
