((Alba Reyes continued from How Can I Take Off This Mask?))

Alba hurried after Brendan. If the vehicle depot was housing one of the repeat killers, getting away from there as soon as possible was likely their best course. It did mean they were possibly running away from Bryony, Candice, and Jonathan if those three were at the radio tower. Now she wasn't sure if she was hoping they weren't there. If they weren't, then she wouldn't feel so bad running the opposite direction. If they were...she would. That she knew for certain.

But she trudged on after Brendan. Maybe he knew something about the area they were heading towards. Thus, she tried to keep up with his pace. Soon, they were running faster. Brendan had recognized one of the people up ahead. Alba figured Bernadette was in the senior class with Brendan. If he was this happy to see her, then surely she was someone else they could have join their group.

"Brendan! Wait up!" Alba cried out running after him.

Alba noticed the other figures with Bernadette. Her eyes widened with joy. There was a reason they went this way after all. Not only did Brendan find his friend, but Alba found the other two kids from the gym where Bradley died. If they were here, surely Bryony was as well.

"Hey! Arthur! Sandra! How are you!" she shouted to the others. "How's it going?!?"

Alba had a big smile on her face as she ran closer to them. This had to be a sign of things changing for the better. Alba continued to look around the area. She didn't see Bryony, but maybe she was nearby.

Alba was pleased to hear Arthur and Sandra were doing okay. Granted, Sandra looked upset, but they were at least still alive. Alba was about to ask about Bryony when Bernadette began to speak to Brendan. That's when Alba felt the atmosphere shift.

Bernadette sounded really angry and upset about Brendan killing. Even him trying to explain that it was to save that girl didn't seem to help. Alba turned towards them and tried to speak.

"Um, Bernadette," Alba said. "Please don't be too hard. He did it to save that girl. Um...Raina, right? Yeah, I think it was Raina."

Alba kept the rifle by her side and smiled.

"Let's not worry about this and just focus on how we're going to make it out of here."

She prayed that would work. She tried to pray as quickly as her mind would allow her to each second.

Alba couldn't believe Bernadette was being so cruel to Brendan. Sure, Brendan did kill, but he had his reasons, and Bernadette shouldn't have written him off completely like that. She also wasn't sure how to take the idea that there was something wrong with Alba believing in him. Maybe Bernadette didn't mean it, but Alba was staying with him because she trusted him, not because she felt she had to keep him in line.

Before she could say anything, Brendan shoved Bernadette and she fell to the ground. Alba let out a short cry and walked over to Brendan.

"Whoa, hey. Let's not get physical," she said to Brendan.

Brendan was already checking Bernadette by the time she got over. From his body language and tone, it was clear something was wrong. Alba's eyes widened when Brendan pulled his hand back and saw blood on it. She held her breath and covered her mouth. Brendan started to cry and held Bernadette close to his body. Alba had always taken a few tumbles and managed to get back up, but most of the time, she had a helmet on. Bernadette wasn't so lucky.

"Bren..." Alba said, slowly reaching her free hand out.

She wasn't sure what to say next. She couldn't even put on a fake smile for him.

Alba wanted to reach out and touch Brendan on the shoulder, but she found it hard to really get close to him. He was cradling his friend's body, and she wasn't sure if it was right for her to get in the way. So she maintained a close distance to him, keeping the rifle lowered, and waited for him to say something.

Unfortunately, they weren't allowed that. There was a loud bang, causing Alba to let out a loud scream. She turned and saw Sandra and Arthur now holding guns and demanding they leave. Alba held her breath. Bernadette was dead, but were they know going to get into a gunfight? It was just an accident, after all. They didn't need to kill each other over that.

Alba was prepared to reason with the two when Brendan got up. He walked away after giving Alba a weak smile. Alba felt her breathing get a bit shaky, glancing back and forth between where Brendan was walking off to and to Sandra and Arthur.

"I...I'm so sorry..." she said.

She closed her eyes and turned away from the two. She picked up her pace and hurried after Brendan. Brendan may have killed two people now, but he was still her friend, and now more than ever, he really needed a friend.
