((Paulo Abbate Continued from Wisteria Lane, After The End ))

Nature called, and Paulo had to pick up the phone. Unfortunately, because it meant being around Becca less. That and being caught with his pants down while he tried to piss would've been one malo fucking way to die.

The area had seemed safe enough anyway, and it wasn't like he could just ignore it until he pissed himself. He'd look like a real asshole, then. So Becca had taken the opportunity to check out a building for whatever reason.

"You gonna get hit, you gonna get knocked out..." He muttered the old Ultimate Fighter theme to himself as he relieved his bladder on the side of the building. He had zipped up by the time the gunshot shattered the day.

"Wh..."

He was moving in an instant, sliding around the wall toward the building, toward where had heard the gunshot. There were rapid footsteps in the distance, but he didn't hear them. Something had gone very fucking wrong.

He turned the corner and entered the building, and there he saw Becca against the door, alone and dead.

Paulo, who had never run into a situation he couldn't shit up by opening his mouth consistently, was struck dumb by the sight. He stared down at the corpse, mouth agape.

Reality checks were a bitch.

Was this his responsibility? When he got right down to it, was this his fault?

He had just...he had just taken a minute. Not even a minute.

How could it.

Just a minute.

Paulo's thoughts were a scattershot stream of confusion, fear, disbelief. He was staring at Becca, what had used to be Becca. His eyes crawled over her, took in the details, the gunshot, the odd look on her face, and registered none of it.

Paulo's cast iron balls had receded all the way into his body.

He slumped against the door frame, and his arm dropped low, the 2 x 4 almost slipping free of his hand.

He swallowed, and the spit caught in his throat.

Alda.

Alda was out there.

He realized now that her name had been lurking somewhere behind the bravado. Maybe even hiding there from the truth. The girl he'd been traveling with who was now bleeding into the ground, that kicked his sister's name to the forefront.

"You just gonna leave her like this?"

His own voice startled him. It sounded different. Raspy. Tired.

He wanted to whirl on whoever this bitch was and belt her across his face with his weapon. But Paulo was dumb, not stupid. And a little too rattled to be aggressive.

Don't have time for this shit.


He complied, dropping the 2 x 4, and felt bitter tears stinging his eyes. He was glad she didn't ask him to turn around. He didn't need anybody to see his face like this. It was pussy, the way he looked right now.

The blade was biting into his neck, and he involuntarily pulled his head back a little to relieve some of the pressure.

"Fuck you think I did it? She was shot. I ain't got no goddamn gun." Paulo's voice threatened to waver, and he was proud of himself from not letting it.

Paulo didn't turn to look at any of whoever it was decided to come running up. He was still locked on Becca. Or what had been Becca, anyway. His thoughts were running around each other, still trying to form something cohesive and failing miserably.

The knife was off his neck, so that was one thing at least. One less thought tangling itself in the web.

"Whatever." He said to Rosemary. It was likely he barely heard her. Then her friend was starting in on him with her bullshit.

"I was taking a fucking a leak and then this." He said, gesturing to the situation at hand. "Why? Where were you when this happened, huh?" He looked back at the girl that asked the question, glaring. He started over to where they had kicked his weapon away.

((Sorry, been dealing with some shit. You guys feel free to prod me if you need me to post faster. Better than me re-inserting after four cycles, lol))

He had only stayed with them because he hadn't really made any plans as to what he was going to do. So far, Paulo only knew he had to find Alda. Probably Cooper. In fact, the whole damn crew. They'd find a way to get out, that was all there was to it.

That's why he had given no resistance to them using Becca as a guinea pig. If it meant getting them closer to a way off the island, that was cool. That was just bueno. He had shit riding on it. He hadn't heard Alda's name on the announcements. That was something. He had heard about who had topped off Becca. That was something else.

But they fucked up. Becca wasn't much of anything at that point. But they still kept going. Paulo had started to tell them if was a dumb fucking idea to do it live, but there were off to the races before he could get anywhere.

And then they were one group member fewer.

Paulo didn't watch the bomb go off. As soon as he knew what was happening he turned away. He was treated instead to the sight of Rosemary losing it. He wasn't sure if that was the lesser of the two evils.

"Holy fucking shit, man." He said. It was really all he could say, at the moment.

It was one bitch of a mess, to be sure. Messes needed to be cleaned up. But hell, even when he was considering burying Becca, Paulo didn't have any idea how he was supposed to go about doing it. This, none of this made any kind of sense to him.

"We ain't got any shovels." He said in response Rosemary. The implication was evident, and as much as he tried to hang onto a little of that "tough motherfucker" thing, the disgust at his own unspoken suggestion they just leave the bodies there was evident in his tone and on his face.

"Don't know what we can do." He said.

Paulo almost wanted to say "Fuck y'all, I got shit to do and people to find." But in light of everything, he couldn't find his voice. At least not that one.

"Yeah." Is what he settled for. Being alone didn't seem to be in his best interest. And maybe he could give this whole helping other people out a second try. God knew he fucked up with Becca.

Then the other girl was coming back with a camera, acting like she wanted to give a eulogy. That was something he knew he couldn't do, not the way he was now.

"You go ahead, then." He said. He didn't want to bring up that none of them would probably make it o...

Fuck that.

Paulo figured it best to stay outside of the record store while Rosemary did her thing, following the old advice that if you didn't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. He regretted now not remember much about Becca other than she was attractive, and she actually wanted his company.

Come to think of it, that was something in himself. Other putas didn't seem to want to have anything to do with him. Felt like a load of bullshit, really.

He waited a little while after Rosemary went in before he looked at Meera.

"You think it's your turn yet?"

The course of action decided, Paulo shouldered his pack and grabbed his weapon. He briefly reconsidered heading back in there himself and paying some kind of respect to Becca; short time knowing her or not, she had been kind of cool. He kept his eyes ahead, anyway. He told himself it was because it wouldn't look good for him to get all emotional and shit. He knew anyway it was because he didn't want to face what he'd been trying to not think about for the past length of time.

"Long as it's better than whatever we fucking found here," he said, some of the faux-Brazilian accent creeping back into his words. This time, however, it was half-hearted.

Paulo followed on Rosemary's heels.

((Paulo Abbate continued elsewhere))
