((Maria Cucinotta continued from Unlikely Salt And Pepper))

Maria had listened to Michael talking about his experiences while they walked through the hallways of the asylum. They have been searching through the rooms as they went along. She made sure to keep an eye behind them in case someone attacked them from behind. She wasn't going to take that risk. She would hate that thought from happening for real. She didn't want things to go to hell for her or Michael.

Were the two of them enough as a small group? Did they need more people to help them take down anyone who deserved it? Would one or two people be better? Would they actually betray her and Michael instead? Could they really trust anyone else? Could anyone else trust her and Michael?

So many questions that she knew that she could not answer. Even if she wanted to. She wondered how long she and Michael could keep up as partners. Would she abandon him soon? No, she wouldn't. She couldn't. She had to keep him company. It was strangely helping her keep sane with Michael around. It probably helped that he was more of a talker than her. Sometimes she almost forgot that she was on a shitty island fighting to survive. Almost.

Maria stopped just a few inches behind Michael as he called out the all-clear to her. She had noticed that he hadn't even opened the door to check the room. Why? Was there someone in there that he knew? Were they dead? Should she ask? She had to make sure that he was going be alright. She didn't want Michael to have a sudden breakdown. Unless she was wrong and he just wanted a break.

"Hey, Michael? Are you okay? Do you want me to check out the room for you?" She offered in a gentle tone.

She realized that Michael really didn't want her to look in there. Well, she guessed that she should respect that and move onto the next room with him. She wondered what or who was in there. Was it's Michael's friend? Jerry. She had a feeling that she should stay away from that subject. Talking about people that were already dead would be too depressing and it would make her feel like crap.

"Sure, if you want to skip that room. I don't have a problem with that. It's also less time consuming for us. I think we should take a break soon. We need to take care of ourselves properly."

Maria perked up as Michael asked if she was looking for anyone. Was she actually going to search for anyone? Junko, Caleb, maybe Kimiko. Also that guy she saw on the roof. Were they all still safe? She hadn't thought about finding them in case she was too late or if she was killed before she even saw them. She wondered if she should say that she did want to find them. She mostly wanted to find Caleb or Junko. Wayne.... She remembered the roof guy's name now. What rotten luck she actually forgot his name before.

"I would really like to find my friend, Caleb. Maybe Junko as well. I want to know if they are both okay. I'm actually scared shitless that I will hear their names on the announcement tomorrow." She shook her head and then she let out a small sigh, biting down on her lower lip a little. "What about you? Are you going to look for your friends? Maybe we can get our friends to form a group with us. Do you think that would be a good idea?"

Maria was silent when Michael spoke about how Jerry lost someone to Nancy and how everything went to hell after that. Would she end up doing the same thing? To get revenge for a friend? Michael was obviously trying to do the right thing by taking down some of those sick killers. Maria was also willing to help him to that.

"If we find Nancy.... Do you want to take that psycho down? I mean.... Do you want to give her the killing blow?""

Maria wasn't that surprised about Michael's response about Nancy. She had killed quite a few people. She knew that Michael was hell-bent on stopping that girl from hurting anyone else. And Maria was determined to help him with that goal. If Maria even saw that Nancy.... Well, she was not going to go easy on her either. Maria was so sure of that. Then they would concentrate on Isabel and the other killers who were going too far to try to get back home.

Maria blinked when Michael passed her and he brought her out of her current thoughts. She raised an eyebrow when he said the name 'Allison'. Who was that? She was sure that she didn't know a girl by that name. She peeked around Michael's body to see who the newcomer was. Oh.... It was that quiet kid. Ally...? No, Alessio! That's his name! Why was he here?

Maria's eyes widened slightly as she noticed the blood on Alessio. Had he...? It should be obvious to her. Fuck. No way. She couldn't even imagine him killing anyone. But then the blood on him. This wasn't good at all. She promised to back up Michael. But did he really think that Alessio would talk to him? Would he even talk to her if she spoke to him?

Maria was now glaring at Alessio as she moved to be a bit closer to him and Michael. She had her sword at the ready in case Alessio was planning on doing anything funny. She could feel her hear beating a little faster. She should say something to him. Before Michael could go completely ax-crazy on him.

"Alessio...?" She took a deep breath and she was keeping eye contact with him. She had to take the calm and gentle approach with him. She didn't want to be too intimidating like Michael was being right then. "Who's blood is that? Who did you hurt?"

Maria felt herself tense up as soon as she saw the gun in Al's hands. Because.... Holy shit! A fricking gun! She automatically took a step backwards. She shouldn't have done that. But she did not want to get shot in the face. She did not want to die. Especially to Al.

She was surprised that Michael did not move away. Then again, that was Michael all over. He was not the type of person who would back down from a fight. She should know that he would risk his life like this. It should be obvious to her that Al was a killer then. It really sucked for her to realize that. But she guessed it would have happened sooner or later.

Michael was nodding at her for her to move. That was a good idea. She moved to the side to make sure that she was apart from Michael. Al would have a harder time to shoot at the both of them. Michael was giving a long speech to Al. She winced about the genitals part. She wasn't really going to do that.

After Michael had finished speaking, Maria took a moment to let out a shaky breath. She was keeping an eye on Al. She was keeping an eye on the gun as well.

"Al-"

Suddenly, Maria noticed that Michael was making a move to attack Al. She didn't move from where she was standing. But she did tight her grip on her sword. She will make sure to move in when Al did something as well.

She just had to wait....

Maria could only hold back and watch as Michael was beating the crap out of Al. She didn't have to do anything but watch. Unless things got out of hand. Then she would step in and do something. So she watched the scene unfold in front of her. Michael was doing a good job on Al himself so far.

Until Al bit Michael's bad hand.

Maria let out a small gasp as Michael was now screaming his ass and he was bleeding. She hurried forward towards the both of them. She wasn't moving towards Michael. She was moving around him to get to Al. She couldn't let Al get away. She had to make sure that he will stay down on the ground.

Maria let out a small growl of pented-up anger. She then held the sword against the side of Al's neck. "Don't you dare move a muscle, Al! Or I swear I will slit your throat!" She threatened him in a cold tone.

She didn't look over at Michael. She had to keep her eyes on Al. Couldn't let him escape.

"Michael.... Are you going to be alright? If you are, pick up the gun...."

Maria watched as Michael picked up the gun and then he was pointing it right at Al. Could she even watch Michael shoot Al? Kill him? She didn't really want to watch. But she couldn't look away. Shit. She hated that she was being so indecisive. She listened as Michael was yelling at Al about justice and she averted her eyes towards the wall. Waiting to hear the sound of a gunshot. To see Al's blood splatter out of the corner of her eye. She still had the sword steady against Al's skin.

But that sound never did come.

Maria was now blinking in confusion. And she turned her head back to look at Michael. A flag had come out of the gun. A fake?! No fucking way!

"Seriously? A fake gun...?! What the hell...?!"

She felt sick to her stomach. They were both seriously about to kill him because of a stupid, fake gun. Not only that. But the fact that Al might have killed someone. She still didn't want to believe that Alessio would have murdered anyone. But the blood on his clothes.... Maria shook her head a little. She couldn't deny it. Even if Al wouldn't say who he had killed.

Maria winced as Michael kicked Al in the privates before going to pick his axe up. Maria held her breath as Michael came back over. She wondered if Michael was about to strike Al in the head. No, he asked her a question instead. About what to do with Al. She guessed Michael didn't want to get rid of him anymore.

.....

Maria stared down at Al. He looked so helpless. So afraid of her. Of the weapon that she was holding against him. She came up with something. She wasn't sure if either of them would like the idea. But she needed to say it.

"We can keep him alive." She said to Michael simply as she moved the sword away from Al's neck carefully and she leaned over with her hand held out to him. "Take my hand and get up, Al. Don't even think of attacking me or I will not be afraid to cut you. Got it?"

Maria was still holding Al's hand as he said that he hadn't killed anyone. She frowned upon him saying that. It was really hard to believe those words from his mouth. But what if Al was telling the truth? They could have just killed him without any hesitation beforehand. Well, Michael would have if the gun hadn't been a fake. Maria would have held back because.... because she didn't have it in her to kill Al. She was not going to tell Michael or Al that. She didn't want to show them any weakness.

She let go of Al's hand as she had been holding it for too long and she cleared her throat, feeling somewhat embarrassed. Al could be a killer or he could not be a killer. Which one is he going to be? Michael was right. They would have to wait until the announcement the next day.

Or she could just ask Al if he thinks that he will be on it.

Maria let out a sigh of frustration. She glanced at Al's face. Killer? Not a killer? Which one are you, Al?

"Can I trust you, Al?"

She had the sword lowered. Don't want to be too threatening. She wanted Al to think that he would be safe with the both of them for a while.

"Do you think that we hear your name on the announcement tomorrow? Yes or no?" She asked him simply.

Maria then looked at Michael who was asking about Al's bag. Michael's hand really did look disgusting and like shit. She grimaced at the sight.

"If he tries to do anything funny to you or me, then the best thing for us to do is either tie him up or trap him in this room." She whispered in Michael's ear and then she glanced back at Al. "We can share our supplies with you if you share with us, Al. It's only fair."

Maria was feeling annoyed when Al didn't say anything to her. But, whatever. He could talk to her when he felt he was ready to. Or maybe he never will if they heard his name on the announcement the next day. And then she would take him out of the picture. One less psycho would be better.

Unless he hadn't gone on some murderous rampage. And you are just thinking the worst of him, Maria. Al could be innocent or he did it in self-defense....

She watched as Michael was going through Al's bag and she was being quiet herself. She needed to think of what they would do next. Maybe they should stay in the asylum for the time being. She was actually feeling exhausted, thirsty and a bit hungry. Strange as she thought that she would be put off by Al and Michael's fight from eating. But she had to take care of her health. Right?

She was grossed out by Michael taking care of his wound and she had to look away until he was done with it. She hoped that she wouldn't have to treat an injury on herself later on. She was pretty sure that she wouldn't be able to do it properly. Unless she asked Michael to take care of it instead. She should stop thinking about it. Focus on Al and Michael.

She then looked back at Michael who was holding a jacket and he was looking at her. She didn't even realize what the jacket was at first. Until she got a closer look at it. A straight jacket? She stared back at Al with obvious surprise on her face. Was he planning to use those on someone who wouldn't suspect it? Would he have used them on her and Michael? She couldn't let that bastard do that!

She nodded her head towards Michael. To make it obvious that she knew what he was thinking. Even if a small part of her thought that it felt unusually odd for a plan.

Maria didn't like that Michael was taunting Al like that. Yeah, sure, Al did have a gun on them but that was over now. And she really didn't need her partner being a dick right now. If Al wanted water, she would have just given it to him. Have all of that horrible shit around his mouth had almost made her gag. She should tell Michael to cool it. She didn't need him acting like that. Even if Al turned out to be a murderer. She even had her own limits.

She took a step towards the both of them.

"Come on, Michael. This isn't the right-"

Maria heard the door bang open and she turned her head sharply to see who was barging in. It was Alvaro with a gun. Was it real? Maybe. She sure as hell wasn't going to test her luck. She didn't want to be filled with bullets and lay there dying because of this guy. She remembered that he had been on the announcements. Killed someone named Barry Banks. Now they had a confirmed killer and a maybe or maybe not killer together. Fucking happy days!

Alvaro wanted her and Michael to back off. She frowned a little. She couldn't do that. But the gun.... This day wasn't going to that great at all. She still have her own weapon lowered and she was trying to not look so threatening. Should she be tough with Alvaro? She wasn't sure. She didn't want to push him over the edge. She needed to say something.

She let out a small, bitter laugh. "Stand down...? You can't be serious." She pointed towards Al and she was staring at Alvaro with a serious expression on her face. "We can't just let him go. If Al here, turns out to be a murderer like you, well.... we need to make sure he doesn't hurt anyone else. Look at the blood on him, Alvaro. If you take him away from us.... What are the chances he will stab you in the back? Because I don't think he is trustworthy. Hell, I don't even trust you. So why don't you just leave without making more of a fuss. Yeah?"

She instantly regretted her words. She was just basically asking to be shot. But she couldn't take them back now. Now it was up to Alvaro to decide what to do next.

Maria knew that Alvaro would not believe them. Of course, because Michael was the type to bully others and Al would more or less be one of Michael's 'targets' or whatever. This was all a bunch of bullshit. Michael calling them the good guys had kind of pushed it. At least to her, it did.

What the hell were they supposed to do now? Alvaro was now threatening to shoot Michael. She really didn't want to lose her partner just after a couple of hours of getting into an alliance with him. The best thing that she could do, was just to listen to Alvaro's words and hope that Michael wouldn't try or say anything stupid.

"....Fine. I'm going to put down my weapon slowly. Let's not do anything that we will regret. Alright?" She was speaking as calmly as she could as she leaned over to place her sword onto the ground and then she leaned back up, staring at the gun in Alvaro's hands.

If only he didn't have that weapon, Maria would not have been afraid to take him down....

Maria listened as Michael was asking Alvaro about the gunfire. She didn't really think about it at the time. That could have been Alvaro shooting at someone, right? She couldn't be too sure. She didn't even have the proof. The evidence of Alvaro doing something so freaking horrid. She couldn't believe it. Even if he does have a gun, many of the others could have guns as well. It could have been anyone.

......

She frowned. Alvaro was telling Al to take her sword away from her. There was no way in hell she was going to let that happen. She needed it to defend herself and she was not willing to part with her weapon. Just because Alvaro had a gun.... He was not going to take away something important to her.

She placed her foot onto the handle of her weapon and she stared at Al coldly. "Don't you even think about taking my sword away from me, Al." She spoke in a quiet tone to warn him off. "You can take your bag and then you and Alvaro can both get lost. That seems more fair."

Don't let Al do anything stupid that could end up with you or Michael dead, Maria....

Maria was relieved when Alvaro left without shooting at either of them. She was glad to still be alive. But for how long? Michael could have fucked them both over. But things turned out okay. The worst thing is is that they let two killers get away from them. They had been so close.

Have they both fucked up badly?

Definitely. Maria could only watch as Michael was beating himself up over what just happened. She wanted to yell at him to stop. But she couldn't get any words out. She felt physically exhausted after all that drama. She needed to take a break.

She slid down to the ground with her back against a wall. She touched the handle of her sword beside her and she glanced over at Michael who was talking about the announcements. He was right. They couldn't hold back any more. They had to hunt down the hunters and turn them into the prey. No more hesitation.

She nodded in agreement with Michael.

"We definitely need to stop them. We can't be fucking cowards. We have to do the right thing. Take them all out."






The next thing that Maria knew was that she was awakening to the sound of the announcements starting. She groggily rubbed one of her eyes and she let out a small yawn. She then started to listen carefully.

.....

The first name she heard made her let out a broken cry.

Caleb was.... He couldn't be....! That wasn't right! Fuck, fuck....!

"N-No...." She croaked out the word meaninglessly and then she let out a pained howl of sadness and anger. "....FUCK! WHY?!"

Maria sniffed and she wiped away her tears with the back of her hand. She didn't have time to be heartbroken over Caleb. He had wanted to find Kimiko and now.... He was dead because of her. Maria wished that she could have convinced Caleb not to find Kimiko. But it was too late now. There was nothing that she could do now. Caleb was gone. That bitch Kimiko was still alive. If she saw her.... Maria was going to make her pay for what she did. Not just for Caleb. But for the other victims too.

Maria got a grip onto the handle of her weapon and she stumbled up to her feet. Michael was right. She had to be careful. She needed to make sure to stay calm and not do anything stupid. She couldn't end up dead like Jerry. She didn't want to let Michael down.

"Alright. I'm ready."
