((Reiko Ishida continued from We Can Live With The Sadness))

Two weeks had passed since Reiko Ishida had found herself waking up on this island. Two weeks that had never felt that long in the past, but these last two weeks had felt like a lifetime. Back then, before the beginning of these two weeks, the girl had taken so many things for granted. Her sister, her relationship with Sarah, her parents, her home, the comfort of her bed she always complained about being too firm. None of those mattered nearly as much as the problems she had faced in the last fourteen days. And yet here she was, one of the last five people left alive on the island.

Her mind wandered as she crouched in that alleyway, Kimberly to one side, an open alleyway on the other. Her thoughts dwelled mostly on Sarah, wondering where she was now, how she was doing. If she would ever move on if Reiko didn't make it. The girl certainly hoped so, even if she was going to try her hardest to make sure that wasn't the case. She was going to get home, even if she had to kill every last person left on this island herself.

She shifted the weapon hanging off her shoulder, within easy reach but not in hand. Reiko made sure to keep her eye out for any suspicious movements. As it stood at that point, anyone who wasn't Kimberly was an enemy. In the back of her mind she knew that in short order Kimberly would no longer be an ally either. At some point one of them had to die in order for the other to live. With any luck, she wouldn't have to be the one to pull the trigger.

The silence was almost unbearable, but she knew better than to try and initiate conversation at that moment. Last thing they needed was someone deciding to find them and shoot them while they weren't paying attention. For now all she could do was wait for the others to show up and see what happens.

Time passed, and not a word was uttered between the two. The tension of the night was compounded by the simple fact that nothing seemed to be happening. For someone who wasn't used to sitting still for more than five minutes at a time, this was torture for Reiko. She kept finding herself looking at Kimberly, who would occasionally be looking at her. She couldn't help but wonder what things would have been like if they'd met a week ago. Chances are one of them wouldn't have made it this far. No sense in thinking about it too much though.

In the distance, glass breaking. Reiko shifted her body slightly, her eyes focusing in the darkness. Someone was nearby, and coming their way. She found herself standing, gripping the strap of her bag around her shoulder. Her already restless body was compelling her to move, to investigate the noise. To find who was responsible for it.

It didn't really take her long to make a decision. "I'm going to check out what that noise was." She stated, nodding her head at her companion before walking out of the alleyway. Truth be told she was glad for any excuse to be on her own again. Making sure to stick close to the buildings, Reiko made her way towards the source of the noise.

Reiko moved as quickly as she could away from Kimberly, trying her best to not make any noise. She knew what she needed to do, and she knew Sarah probably wasn't going to like it. Unfortunately, if she had any hope of going home, she was going to have to ignore any semblance of morality. Hopefully, Sarah would understand.

Reiko made sure to be fully aware of her surrounds. Her eyes caught any movements, her ears listening for every sound. She ducked into every shadow she could find, using her small frame to it's advantage. Every alleyway, every corner brought about new dangers. Any one of the other three people could be waiting around the corner, ready to blow her head off at the first sign. The constant danger of being killed was nothing new for her, especially since everyone had pegged her as dangerous. Now was different though. Now she was so close to making it home. All she needed to do was outlive four other people.

Ducking into another alleyway, Reiko game up to another house. The chances that someone was in the house were slim, but even so there was a chance. Without giving too much of herself away, Reiko glanced into the house, peering into the darkness to see if she could see anything.

Reiko spent quite a few minutes before she was able to determine no one was in the house. At least, not in a place where she could see them. The thought occurred to her that whoever was in there may be hiding on the second floor, but she wasn't exactly willing to enter any of the houses. A single loose floorboard would be enough to spell death for her. Instead, she would move on to the next house, see if anyone was visible, and move on. Even if she could get just one person, that would be one more step for her to make it home. One more step to see Sarah again.

The girl was about to move when she heard the soft steps on the ground around near the front of the house. Keeping her profile as small as she could, Reiko moved around the house, her hands gripping the large gun strapped to her shoulder. During her entire stay on the island she had never fired anything larger than a pistol, and even those she had to hold in both hands just to keep it steady, let alone fire. With any luck, this wouldn't be much harder, if she found the need to use it.

Crouching near the corner of the house, Reiko saw a girl approaching. It didn't take long for her to rule out who it was. The only girl remaining other than her and Kimberly was Ericka. She knew that any hesitation in dealing with her would probably lead to her death. After all, Ericka had killed her share of people before, and you don't do that by accident. Her back was towards the smaller girl, and before she had a chance to have second thoughts, Reiko raised the weapon and pulled the trigger.

The fire from her gun broke the tense silence in the air, as it spat out five bullets before Reiko let go of the trigger. Her hands stung from the recoil, but as she looked back towards her intended target, she found that she somehow managed to connect. Reiko sighed with relief. Even though she had done this before, she couldn't help but get nervous. Any mistake now would be costly, and the price could very well be her life.

After waiting for a few moments to make sure the girl wasn't going to get up, Reiko moved from her spot. She approached the girl, keeping her eyes on her in case she was playing possum the whole time. However, this didn't appear to be the case. Reiko approached the body without incident, and from what she could tell there was no signs of life in them. There was a gun lying about a foot away from them, probably dropped after she had been hit.

It was strange, actually having a chance to stop and look at someone she had killed. Every other time someone had come along to prevent her from doing so, but now she had that moment. Unfortunately by this time she had become too desensitized to the feeling of killing, the knot in your stomach as you realize you just took another life. Reiko didn't feel any particular remorse, not that she could afford to by this point. She knew someone else would probably be attracted by her gunshots, so she needed to get out of there quickly. Taking a moment to pick up the gun that was left behind, Reiko began to walk away from the scene as fast as she could.
