((Lillian 'Lily' Caldwell continued from TFW you'll never find out what's in the basement.))

Lily’s feet were cold and damp.

It reminded her of history class. Of the stuff about soldiers who sat in the damp for too long and got trench foot. Here she was. Feet in a mucky slush, bodies littering the area. Wearing a soldier’s helmet on top of everything else.

She’d almost lost Isabel a few times on her way here, particularly once they got back into the asylum. Lily hadn’t even been sure she’d tracked Isabel properly, even standing here in the damp surrounded by bodies. Only when she heard a sinister scraping noise (though what noise wouldn’t sound sinister in this place) did she feel sure she was in the right place.

That noise, however, meant that Isabel was still awake. Still at the ready. It wasn’t yet time.

Lily looked around. Only a set of doors separated her from Isabel. And there was nowhere to hide, except perhaps underneath one of these big tubs. One of them had already been overturned. If Lily overturned another one, Isabel might notice the dissimilarity. If she moved any at all, Isabel might hear her. Especially with all this water and the heaviness of those tubs.

...Hm. That just complicated everything, didn’t it?

Lily gave a wary glance towards the doors separating her from the back of the water treatment rooms. Then, very slowly, she started to back away towards the entrance. There had to be somewhere she could hide nearby. Somewhere she could wait. She tried not to slosh the water with her feet.

As Lily backed towards the doors, they swung open. And standing in the doorway was Kimiko Kao. Of course. Why wouldn’t it be? The only thing that would complete this situation was if Nancy had followed Lily here.

There was a killer at her front, and a killer at her back. Nowhere else to go.

Lily froze for a moment, hands raised and eyes wide. Even then, her eyes scanned Kimiko. Blood on her clothes. Weapons visible. No gun. Dangerous. But not Isabel. Not Tina’s killer.

Slowly, Lily held one finger in front of her lips and motioned for Kimiko to be quiet. (She felt foolish a second later, remembering that Kimiko was mute. She couldn’t remember where she’d heard that, a cousin maybe?)

Still keeping her movements slow, so as not to be noisy, Lily reached into her bag and removed her notepad. She turned over several pages, then scribbled out ‘ISABEL’ in big letters across a blank page.

She turned the page over so Kimiko could see it, then pointed at the double doors at the back of the big room.

The enemy of her enemy was her friend. And considering that Isabel was a murdering lunatic, she was everyone’s enemy.

Kimiko didn’t attack Lily. She just looked at the paper, nodded. Neared the double doors and clearly prepared for what was beyond them.

Lily, on her part, moved back towards the doors that Kimiko had come through. She didn’t want Isabel to know she was there, or at least wanted to be in a better position to flee if she had to. She didn’t want to completely leave the area until either Isabel or Kimiko was dead, or until there was no other choice.

Lily backed away and slipped through doors Kimiko had come through. But she stopped just out of sight, pressing her back to the wall right next to the door and rummaging in her little bag for the shard of mirror. As she heard the sound of Isabel snarling like some insane, rabid mutt, she grasped the shard and waited.

Perhaps Lily could have lashed out at Kimiko. Put an end to a triple killer. Secured the one kill she needed to get off this island. There was a moment where Lily might have managed it. Given some luck.

But it was too risky. And even if it wasn’t, it was not worth killing Kimiko. Kimiko had proven to be someone who could be reasoned with. Who could prioritize. Otherwise she would have cut Lily down and moved on to Isabel with one problem less. And Lily had warned her. Lily was trustworthy. So perhaps, should they meet in the future, Kimiko wouldn’t harm her. Maybe she would. But there was room for doubt and debt.

And Lily didn’t want the heat of killing off one than one person. She needed one kill to leave. And she wanted it to be Isabel.

So Lily looked at Kimiko, looked at the blood sliding from the wound in her leg, and bolted. Looking for the nearest hiding spot, so that when Isabel left Lily could continue with her goal.

Lily didn’t leave as quietly as she wanted. She hoped that Isabel would attribute the splashing noise of her feet rushing through water to Kimiko.

((Lily Caldwell continued in Megalomania.))
