(Kaitlyn Greene continued fromRobber Barons)

This. Grh.

Yeah, Kaitlyn was more grumpy following the Day 3 announcements than she'd been following the first ones.

Partly Kimiko Kao. Dumb freak. She hadn't broken Kaitlyn's nose with that kick yesterday, but it'd been enough to bust out some blood and a day later it still felt a little tender. It was bad enough they'd ended up with dick-all, but to have someone like Kimiko leave her bloody? Fucking insult to injury... or the other way around.

Since then, she and Alan moved north, hadn't come across any situations that were to their liking, and had discussed their awesome plan in brief snippets that made her (and she was sure as shellfish Alan too) grinningly aware of where this was all going.

It wasn't disappointing, necessarily. As the announcements broke for the third day, it's not like she'd had some totally unrealistic expectations of where she'd be at. No, what was eating away at Kaitlyn was that sense of missed opportunity. And it was only slightly made up for by that feeling of tension, that jolt she got when she and Alan snuck some glares at each other and turned away.

But not enough. She was just feeling... dull here. Like some of the energy had been sucked right out of her. So when she and Alan saw the cluster of buildings and Alan suggested taking a peek, she was right there with him.

"Yeah. Let's head inside for a bit."

There were a few of them. Eenie-meenie-miney-moe. That was pretty good. Who's behind door number one? Yeah. There it was again. She felt a surge. She felt better.

They picked the one on the right. The door was heavy, but it didn't seem to have any locks on it. Kaitlyn rapped it with her fist until it opened a crack.

"Knock-knock. It's Kaitlyn and Alan."

She stuck her head in and saw Mia Rose there. Hmm.

"We're friendly!"

Was Kaitlyn disappointed again? Maybe a bit.

Kaitlyn padded in alongside Alan, depositing her shield on the floor just inside the entryway. Gleh. Every few hours she'd been promising herself she'd get rid of that heavy load, and she kept lugging it around with her. Not that she couldn't handle the weight, but it was just another little frustration she was putting up with.

Of course, she didn't need to worry about defending herself against Mia. They were friendly, played softball, had classes. Kaitlyn wouldn't go so far as calling them friends, but still. And Mia had always been too eager to get along with everyone, even annoying or worthless people. Frankly, Kaitlyn wasn't sure how the other girl could stand it.

Plus Mia was like, apologizing for there being books on the floor. And Kaitlyn could only smile at that.

"Really, Mia? Like believe me, I think we all want to bust stuff here. It's cool."

Yeah. Busting stuff.

That was the plan, hmm?

And Alan seemed to want to know more. Maybe about Mia's stuff-busting abilities, or whether any major battles had just gone down. Oh. Maybe he was checking out Mia's qualifications for their rebel plan.

Yeah.

"Thanks for letting us in though. We've been around outside most of the time. Haven't seen much."

Kaitlyn moved along the side of the room, taking in some of the books on the wall.

She had plans.

Mia was being herself, and Kaitlyn really had no choice but to relax. Cause she liked Mia, bits of annoyance and all. There wasn't any point in her brooding about those lists of the dead that Kaitlyn herself hadn't tried to dwell on, for example. And she shot a self-admittedly pissy look at Alan for bringing that up in the first place.

Cause it was also tugging at something in her.

She turned back to the upright bookshelf and traced her fingers across a few volumes. Nudged some books on the ground with her feet and looked back. Mia was smiling. So was Kaitlyn.

Then Mia pulled out something special and they were right back at the cove with Irene and the others.

Ba-chunk. Feel. Kaitlyn blinked.

"Huh."

Her grin faltered a bit. That was good. Mia'd expect it, what with showing a gun and all. You wouldn't expect someone to keep a big-ass smirk on their face after that.

"No worries."

But it only dropped down to Kaitlyn's half-smile, and she felt that was good as well.

"I mean, I got that thing-- " she motioned to the shield on the floor, "--Alan got a toy sword, so you're up in the draw at least. We ran into Irene the other day, she had this big shotgun. Again, not gonna use it or anything."

Kaitlyn finished her brief tour of the books and dropped into a chair. She set her bag down by her feet.

"But yeah... like it sucks, what you said. Losses. Like you wouldn't expect someone like Mitch... And you know, I think I was one of the only kids at school who could deal with Bradley."

Kaitlyn shook her head. God damnit, she was feeling all wistful here.

Kaitlyn? Oh yeah, as Alan went into his usual spiel she was nonchalant. Hey, she was pretty good at this, she thought. She'd have been great in Vegas.

She settled back into the armchair she'd plopped down in. It was pretty comfortable, actually. She could get used to that after stomping around outdoors for the last two days. Sure, Kaitlyn knew full well it'd get boring as bones after not too long, but for now, it was good. And she glanced her eyes back and forth between the other two.

Yep, and Mia gave the predictable answer. Kaitlyn glanced over at Alan again. Yeah, he was grumpy at that. But really, what did he expect? Kaitlyn had been with the guy long enough now to know what was up. And she wanted to keep that "up" going a while longer. She still liked him, after all. Same with Mia. And she scratched her fingers on the armrest and rolled her thoughts over about that beautiful gun.

Sure, Alan thought he had some secrets. Well, Kaitlyn had a few of her own she was sure he was still clueless about. One that led to a hell of a pot of gold at the end of this potential rainbow. And best of all, she had the opportunity to do it clean.

She was clicking her teeth together. She willed herself to stop.

"Nah, don't worry," she told Mia. "We'll chill."

One more look at Alan. They locked eyes. Yeah. He knew.

Well. Then.

"..."

Kaitlyn cleared her throat.

"...I'm gonna grab a protein bar."

She zipped open her bag and didn't focus on how her fingers had started trembling. Fuckels. Stop that. Cause it was time. Frankly, she should have used it on Kimiko.

She brushed her fingers against the glass bottle, then plucked a bar out. She looked over at Mia.

"Hey, want one?"

Kaitlyn tossed the bar to Mia underhanded, waited for the other girl to reach for it.

"Grab her, Alan!" she yelled.

Now the motherfucker just needed to react right. Because Kaitlyn was already reaching back into her bag.

Stop shaking.

And just what were her hands shaking with?

Everything, she guessed.

Kaitlyn pulled out the bottle, drew the syringe out of its package. Okay. She'd seen this before on TV. You just jab the needle through the top -- perfect -- and draw in the stuff. It filled the barrel before her eyes and she was just now trying to figure out how much she was supposed to use here. Fuck. Not that much, that's for sure. This was horse stuff, right, and horses weren't exactly human-sized, not to mention the whole species difference... but tranquilizers and stuff were all pretty much the same stuff, right? She was sure there were plenty of people out here who'd gotten this whole thing down to a fine art, either like scientifically or recreationally. Funny. Libertarian though Kaitlyn was, she'd never bothered to get too much involved with the 'drugs for all!' scene. Not that Kingman was big or exciting enough to have anything like that. Maybe she was saving it for Vegas.

"Uhhh..."

She glanced up. Mia was bucking violently -- like a horse or something, ha -- and even though Alan had her down tight, yeah, she had no time for this. Half a dose should be good. That sounded right. Horses were about twice as big as people. So as she lurched out of the chair and forward, she was already pressing down on the plunger and spraying an arc of clear liquid halfway across the room.

"Keep on her Alan, I'm coming, and--"

Kaitlyn stuttered out the words as she crossed the room, only to stumble over her own feet halfway there and thud painfully on her knees, scraping one. Well fuck, so much for grace. She cursed, made the last few steps on her knees and dropped down by the two of them on the floor, holding the syringe up and feeling the heat from Mia's struggling form.

Right then. Ignore that 'what the fuck you got THERE' look on Alan's face and get this done. Because what? Was either of them gonna expect Mia to be all understanding after they grabbed the gun from her? Even if the girl didn't do something nutso, that whole... that whole betrayal thing, the reaction she'd have, the things she'd say to them, no. Kaitlyn wasn't dealing with that when she had her secret weapon all ready to go.

"--and yeah! Hold her. Hey. Hey Mia. It's cool, it's just like a sleeping thing. Sedative, yeah. It's just--"

She didn't look at Mia any more than she had to either. Because still, she liked Mia.

"knock you out for a bit. Just-- fuck hold it! -- just for a bit."

She pressed Mia's head sideways to the floor and jabbed the needle into her neck. Pressed the plunger and could feel the absolute opposite flowing through her veins.

"It's cool. Relax."

Done. Done. ohholychristles.

Kaitlyn sucked in air as Mia stopped fighting and closed her eyes. Alan slowly rolled off the girl and Kaitlyn stared down a while longer: hearing Mia breathe, taking everything in. Mia always had awesome skin. Made Katelyn jealous at times.

"ugggggg.... oh man."

She traced her hand down Mia's jacket, into the pocket. The gun's handle sticking out, a treasure chest half-buried in the sand. Kaitlyn tapped it to make sure it was real, then pulled it out, holding it with her fingertips. Yeeeeah. It was more than real, it was a fucking Uzi.

And how amazingly had it all worked.

"oh man."

Her hands were trembling too much and she dropped the gun.

She rolled over on her back and stared up at the ceiling. She was fucking giddy here and her whole body was like seizuring. Holy. Kaitlyn couldn't get up, couldn't even consider turning over for now, she felt like a goddamn turtle flipped onto its shell. And when she snuck a glance at Alan and saw the look on his face she almost burst out laughing.

A few minutes, probably, passed. She started breathing again. Kay then. Sorry Mia.

"Huh?"

Alan had said something dumb.

"Not that much. I mean like half a thing."

She finally rolled over and got back up on her knees.

"Let's, uh, bring her up on the--"

OK, now Alan was shouting something. He sounded pissed.

"Or what? You don't just punch people or something and they get knocked out Alan, it's not like fucking TV, OK? She's fine, it was my weapon that's what it's FOR, y'know? Sorry I didn't tell you, but--"

Alan's look.

"She's..."

Kaitlyn scooched over on her knees next to Mia's body. What, was the girl already waking up or something? Just to be safe, she swept the gun away a few feet. Didn't want her suddenly up and grabbing for it like a zombie movie.

"Uhh...."

Alan's look wasn't like that.

Kaitlyn bent over Mia.

"Hey Mia.

"Hey"

...

"ohwhatthehell."

Mia still had really nice skin. Kaitlyn poked her cheek a couple times. Harder.

"Motherfucked!"

She glared back up at Alan.

"This is all your fucking fault!"

And maybe another knowing glance came between them. Kaitlyn wasn't sure. But in her mood, she didn't give a shit.

She dove for the gun.

What? No, Kaitlyn wasn't diving for the gun in some attempt to jump up and pump Alan full of lead or anything. She wasn't some killer. She wasn't gone crazy here. Piss all over that. It was just the aliens and zombies again, and when you didn't know what kind of shit had just gone done and were still trying to process it all, it wasn't a bad idea to make sure you had possession of the gun that had been the impetus of all these problems in the first place.

So Kaitlyn scrabbled across the floor for five or six feet, collapsed on the gun, and hugged it with both arms, before pirouetting on her belly and looking up at Alan before realizing that he was just going to stand there with his hands on his fucking hips and give her his speech and no, she wasn't about to shoot him.

Give Alan credit. He knew that. But it still pissed her straight off that he knew it well enough to stand there like the smug lord of all creation he thought he was and explain it to her.

"It's your fault because there is no fucking plan, dickfuck!" she yelled and stared back down at the gun. She made it up to her knees and stayed there, ass resting on her heels.

"You come across and you go on and we both knew it the whole fucking time that you never had anything and I'm not saying this isn't my fault too and... FUCK!"

The gun turned over in her hands a couple times. Ugh. She totally had to figure out how to use this now. Then her eyes flicked up and caught ahold of Alan's, and the two of them bored holes in each other for another moment before Alan... wait what?

"But hey. Fuck me too. I think this can be the start of a beautiful partnership. Eh?"

Fuck off, she still kinda liked the guy.

Kaitlyn sat there a moment. This was pretty uncomfortable. She eased her legs out to her side so she wasn't resting on them anymore. Better. Although it didn't help stop the fluttering in her chest that'd been going on since she'd killed...

Oh fuck she'd just admitted it to herself; the fluttering turned into a whirlwind and outta nowhere she broke out into laughter again. Not too crazy chuckling, just a few hiccups or two mixed in. She hoped.

She looked over at Mia.

"Fuck off," she said.

"Fuck off. I dunno what I'm doing now."

That was a lie. But whatever she was doing, she needed some time away from him to do it.

"We'll split up her food. If you wanna see me again... whatever, maybe. I'm not gonna shoot you or anything. Gimme a spot and time, next couple days."

Yeah. Time to plan.

The dumbest thing she'd done since Alan left was crawl over to Mia again. You know, to make sure. And Kaitlyn mentally cursed herself for doing it, because it was stupid, she knew it was stupid, and there she was still looking down, staring at Mia's dead face and telling it to get up you asshole, you're not really fucking dead here, right?

But no. Of course Mia was still dead. She looked OK, all things considered. Her mouth was a bit open and that was unnerving, but other than that, not bad. Just not good enough to fool Kaitlyn or anyone else. So she was dead and maybe Kaitlyn was fucked now, so she sat cross-legged next to the body and thought.

You know, if the zombies were real and not just the obvious metaphor Kaitlyn was using to describe her situation, this would've been a hell of a time for Mia to rise up behind her.

Kaitlyn flicked her eyes over at the girl, then grabbed both bags and dragged them over to the armchair she'd been sitting in before this whole shitstorm started. Yeah, better. More comfortable than dragging her ass along the floor, too. She settled in. Christ, it was so comfortable she could almost fall asleep here and...

Kaitlyn shook her head. Jesus, what the hell? Was the rush already dying off to the point where she was about to fall asleep? That... that was fucked. She raised one shaky hand and gently slapped her cheek a few times, then reached into her own bag and brought out a bottle of water, gulping down almost half of it. OK. Clearer.

Now go through this one at a time.

Speaking of water, Kaitlyn started with the bags. She transferred the rest of Mia's supplies over to her own, including the ammunition clips, and at least tried to avoid grinning when she saw them. That was good. Mia's personal stuff... less good, and Kaitlyn was feeling too icky to go through them outside of a bag of sour jujubes she grabbed and tore open immediately. Oh fuck yes, that helped with the ickiness. But she wasn't, couldn't really... OK she didn't give a shit about the whole ghoulish aspect of stealing from the dead but that didn't mean she couldn't have at least some respect for the girl by not poring through the rest of her stuff, right. Yeah.

Besides, what else was there to take? Mia wasn't close to her size and what else, was she gonna go through the girl's makeup or wallet or some shit?

She tossed the bags back down and chewed on some delicious jujubes and drank water for a few more minutes to kill time until she had to really think about this again. And when she got to that point she was about to just get up and wander the library to kill more time when she clenched her jaw and said no, she was doing this now. Think now, wander after.

Uggggg. This. Was. Fucked.

Not if she came up with something.

So anyway, Mia had gone nuts. Attacked her. Tried... tried to kill her, oh my god. The only way Kaitlyn could defend herself was to fight back and inject Mia with tranquilizer. Because... because she'd only wanted to knock her out. Kaitlyn was such a great person that she didn't even want to kill Mia after Mia'd gone crazy and murderous.

No, that sucked. Not only did it depend on someone actually believing Mia was a killer but someone's trying to kill you how the hell do you fill a syringe and inject someone in a fight for your life? No.

So, holy shit, Alan. He was completely crazy, that brute. What a bastard. He'd.... he'd forced her to. Uh... held them at gunpoint and forced Kaitlyn to inject Mia for his own sadistic pleasure. And then... she'd gotten his gun?

That was even worse. She wasn't even gonna dignify that attempt by bothering to point out the fucking plot holes there. But.

But Mia, she couldn't take it anymore. You know the situation, it's fucked. Mia broke down. She wanted to opt out. Kaitlyn understood. But Mia... she just couldn't go through with it on her own. She got the syringe but her hands were like shaking and stuff. She begged her. Begged Kaitlyn to help her. And Kaitlyn didn't want to, but... what are friends for, right?

That was better. Maybe. She still didn't like it much. But it might be the best of a bunch of shitty situations unless she could think up something better by the time the announcements went out.

Or even.

Kaitlyn cleared her throat. She looked around at the nearest camera. Ceiling, to her left. Yeah, staring down at her and blinking dumbly. Should she get up and like, present herself in front of it? No, sit down. Maybe make this seem casual. Especially since she still wasn't sure what exactly she was gonna say or how.

"So uh, hey terrorists. You guys.... yeah. I haven't really talked to you or anything. You probably get all these kids screaming things at you, so... maybe we make a deal instead?

"I mean, how about you guys, on the announcements, you leave me out of it? I don't really need that kill award cause I've got a gun and all. So you just say that Mia... she y'know, killed herself. You say that, and I'm like... I'm under the rader. You see? Wouldn't that be cool?"

She turned away from the camera and blinked. Hey. Maybe. You know what? No harm in fucking trying.

"Because hey, I'm serious about this idea! I mean, if I'm not on the announcements, doesn't that make it easier for me to, uh, gain trust and stuff? I could... I could maybe take out a w-whole bunch of people that way? Wouldn't that be something totally unique?

"So uh, think about it! Really, I can make it-- I can make it worth it to you!"

End. And ass. Not her best bluff.

Another poker reference. Double ass.

She sat there for a while longer.

By the time she left, dragging Mia outside because it didn't feel 100% right to leave it sitting there, it had definitely turned to afternoon and it was kinda looking like rain soon. Dammit. Was it considered worse, respect-wise, to leave someone outside in the rain? Nah. The rain would be good. Part of nature, like death was, really.

Kaitlyn pulled Mia over to what might have been a garden or at least some manicured bushes alongside the library wall, and left her there. Wasn't really concealed or anything, but at least gave her more privacy than sitting in the middle of the library. She half-heartedly tried to kick some dirt on it, but the ground wasn't offering much give and she sure as sour jujubes wasn't about to dig a grave here. Then, striding back to the entrance, she picked up her bag.

It was fuller, for sure, but her weight as a whole was lighter because she'd finally had to give up the shield. She was annoyed at how stupidly wistful that made her feel, like she was losing an old friend, but whatever. Besides, she could probably come back if she really wanted it later on. It'd been stashed in a storage closet and even if someone came across it, how likely would it be that they'd want to lug it around the island? Besides that, Mia's stuff, and the gun, which she had to at least get some practice in with soon, the only other stuff she'd grabbed had been two books from the library. Not that she'd ever been a big reader, but she remembered Peter Pan as a kid and liked it, even though it was like a hundred years old or something. Maybe she'd get in some flashlight reading during the night and feel like she was back home at age 10. Yeah. That made her smile.

So, step one of planning done. Step two?

Maybe she'd decide how the hell step two worked once she got away from here.
