((Scarlett McAfee continued from Imprimatura))

How long have they been walking side by side? Scarlett had no idea. She couldn't help but think that leaving the others had been a bad idea. But that was her own fault. She had made her choice. She couldn't take it back now. Could she have tried to convince Aiden to stay in the group? Probably not. Scarlett let out a small sigh and she shook her head lightly. How would she be able to convince Aiden that all of this was not a prank? Some sick, twisted joke? No way. It wasn't even that. She remembered the blood. Mr Graham's blood. He never deserved to die like that. She couldn't get the image out of her mind and she just felt ill. How could they do something like that? Like this? Very easily. She couldn't deny it.

She was being more quieter than normal while Aiden was talking to her and she just let him. She just wanted them to both get outside. She need the fresh air. She wanted to escape. An exit.... Yes, they needed to find an exit. She didn't know how much longer she would be able to handle being there. Had they taken a wrong turn somewhere? She was feeling nervous and more uncomfortable. Her footsteps were echoing alongside Aiden's. This place was too big.

Scarlett stopped walking when Aiden asked if she was okay and she blinked a little. He seemed to have noticed that she was in a state of uncertainty. Should she just tell him how she was really feeling? Or should she lie and pretend that everything was going to be fine? She honestly didn't want to ruin Aiden's mood. But she didn't want to let him find out the truth the hard way.

Scarlett lowered her bag down onto the ground and she struggled to give Aiden a smile. Just be honest with him, Scarlett. "No, I'm not okay. Not really, Aiden. We're in a really messed up situation. We saw someone getting killed in front of us. We're in a kill or be killed situation. And I'm scared. And I just.... I don't know how to handle all of this.... And I don't know if you will believe me, Aiden." Scarlett's voice was getting more emotional and she didn't want Aiden to see her cry, so she turned away from him quickly. "I'm sorry for getting all emotional like this. I want to stay strong and positive. But I can't. I'm sorry for being such a downer, Aiden. I just didn't want you to go alone."

Scarlett was trying hard to blink away her tears and she then wiped at them with the back of one of her hands. She sniffed a little. She didn't want Aiden to see her like this. She wanted to be strong. Be positive. Hope that they would be saved by someone. But she had that gut feeling that it wasn't going to happen. Or that it would be too late for all of them. Except for one person. Who would be completely messed up by everyone else dying. She couldn't bear the thought. What if her friends were already dead?

Scarlett let out a surprised gasp as Aiden touched her shoulders from behind and she wanted to pull away. But she didn't. Because she kind of trusted him not to harm her. She couldn't see him hurting her. She had witnessed what happened between him and Bradley. But that didn't matter anymore. That was in the past. Then she heard his strange nickname for her. She remembered when he first called her that when they were looking for a puzzle for him when they were at her home. She had laughed because she thought it was cute. She still thought that it was cute now.

Then he was hugging her. She didn't suspect Aiden to do that. But it felt a bit nice. Scarlett was always the type of girl who was up for hugs. She normally liked doing surprise hugs to other people. So she thought that it was funny that Aiden was doing the same to her. She was making sure to listen to what he was saying to her. She didn't want to be rude and interrupt him from trying to comfort her. She felt guilty for making him sad as well. He was obviously trying to make her see that all of this wasn't real. It was still so hard for her to believe his words. Aiden wanted her to trust him. She wanted to. She really, really wanted to. Maybe she could try for a while. Until.... Until Aiden saw the truth of what was happening to them.

Scarlett didn't pull out of Aiden's hug and she just turned around slowly to face him. She give him a wobbly smile and she shook her head slightly. It felt so odd to be comforted by Aiden. Maybe she could get more used to him. "You don't have to apologize to me, Aiden. I was just panicking and I didn't mean to act like that. I'm sorry to have worried you like that. Really, I am." Scarlett was being somewhat truthful with him and she was making eye contact with him. Aiden really felt like a brother to her in an unusual way. "I do trust you, Aiden. I think we will get out of here together. I just hope that we are not lost. I really don't want to stay here for too long."

Scarlett should have known that she and Aiden would have bumped into other people sooner than later. She didn't know whether she should have been relieved or uneasy about knowing the two new arrivals. Raina Rose seemed to be on guard a little. That didn't surprise Scarlett as she would have freaked out if she had bumped into Raina instead. She possibly would have screamed as well. And then felt like a fool for doing so. The other person was Johnny McKay who she didn't really interact with that much. However, it seemed like he and Aiden were buddy-buddy. So she guessed these two weren't going to start a fight. Not like she was thinking that they would. She was just being a bit paranoid. Being stuck in this horrid place possibly didn't help either.

".....Hey, it's nice to see some familiar faces. Are you guys alright?" Scarlett was being polite for now as she was calming down a little in the others' presence. "Are you two alone as well? We're trying to find a way out of here."

Scarlett wanted to be honest with Raina and Johnny right away. It wouldn't hurt to have more allies as long as Aiden didn't try to rush off again. Just like with Jonathan, Barry and that other girl. Scarlett was standing behind Aiden so she took a step to the left side of him. So that she had a better view of the other two.

A place to chill? Scarlett raised an eyebrow when Raina said that so normally. Like they weren't in a terrible game of life and death. Scarlett thought it would be better if they all just left this place together. Maybe going outside was not a great plan but she was desperate to get some fresh air. She also noticed that Alice was there as well finally. It looked like she was backing away from the group. Scarlett wasn't going to say anything about Alice. She didn't think she needed to.

Scarlett gave a small nod to Raina. "Thanks for warning us about the basement, Raina. I wouldn't want to go down there anyway. Aiden and I just want to get outside...." And then what would they do? Will Aiden finally realize that all of this was not a joke? ".....Thanks for the way out of here. Well, I didn't wake up on this floor. So I have no clue who would do that to a room. I'm not sure about Aiden tho. We did see some others. Barry Banks, Jonathan and a girl who's name I have no clue of. We split up from them. So... yeah...."

Scarlett noticed that Johnny was giving a cigarette pack to Aiden. If she was back at home; she would be disapproving of people smoking and damaging their bodies. But right now she just wanted to go. So she stared right at Aiden and tilted her head towards the stairs behind Alice.

"I think we should get going now, Aiden."

Scarlett had stayed where she was and she listened to the others speaking to Aiden. She didn't know if Aiden would- Hold on a second. Alice had just spoken up. Scarlett turned to face Alice, feeling a bit surprised that she was talking without bolting off on them. Scarlett was actually somewhat proud that Alice was trying to talk some sense into Aiden.

Scarlett risked a glance back at Aiden. Did he even believe what Alice was saying to him? She hoped so. Even though she badly wished that all of this wasn't real herself.

"Aiden...."

Scarlett shut her mouth without saying anything more than just his name. What could she even say to him? All she would really do is wait and see how he would react.

Scarlett couldn't do anything when Aiden broke down. The truth was that she had wanted to cry herself. But she didn't want to show how scared and fearful she was. She could only stand by and watch in silence as Raina was trying to calm Aiden now. Scarlett wasn't sure what they could plan to survive. Sooner or later there was a chance that they would die. But Scarlett didn't say anything. It would have broke her heart to see Aiden in a worse state. They had to try something. But what could they-

Scarlett's thought was disturbed by the sound of something ringing. Scarlett turned her head slightly and she looked slightly puzzled. Was that a bell? Could it be someone trying to call allies? What if they could group up and try to plan an escape? What if it would work?

"That sounds like a bell! We should at least try to see if we can find it. We could make more allies and then maybe we can try to find a better way to survive this. I'm going ahead to check it out, Aiden!"

Scarlett smiled at Aiden cheerfully before she bolted away from the group. Hoping that things will get better for them all.
