It was really excruciatingly painful as Alba pressed the alcohol pad against his bleeding wound. He was let out some pathetic whimpers and he was trying to stop himself from bawling like a big baby. He really did feel so worthless. He was grateful about Alba helping him out. He really did owe her so much for being there for him and for protecting him from Jae. He had been scared that if he had tried to leave her, then she could have ended up dead. But she was here. Alive and well. But for how long would they been able to survive this? He had no idea. But they had to try. They had to try and find their friends again. And just attempt to continue on living.

"Aaaaah.... F-Fu.... I-It's too much, Alba...."

He felt a tear roll down his cheek. He felt like things would get worse for the both of them as they could carry on for however long they would. He sniffed a little and he avoided looking into Alba's eyes. He just peered down at the ground, still breathing very sluggishly.

"W-Why did he...?"

Because he despises you, Brendan.

"...."

Brendan glanced back up again to watch Alba bandage up his wound. He was trying to breath through his nose slowly. He didn't want to continue letting out a few more whimpers and choked back sobs. He didn't want to look like he needed more protection from Alba at that moment. He wanted to more brave. More calm. More rational about things before he did them.

"We.... We could use this place as a hideout instead, I guess. We just need to be more careful this time. Make sure that we don't run into the wrong people again. That will be hard to do but we have to try. Right?" He suggested to her quietly and his expression softened when Alba sounded like she was blaming herself for him getting hurt. "H-Hey, what happened to me was not your fault, Alba. It was Jae's. He made that choice to shoot at me."

Brendan flinched when he heard someone knocking. Then he recognized the voice that spoke to them. Brendan turned his head towards the direction of the voice. His heart almost jumped out of his skin. He never thought that he would see her.

Fiyori....

"F....Fiyori...?"

Brendan needed a moment to think. He actually felt really relieved to see that Fiyori was alive and well. Was she okay mentally though? After all this.... He just wanted to rest and not have any more drama for the day. He wanted peace and quiet. Even if that was a thought of selfishness.

He was staring up at Fiyori with a sincere expression. He wasn't sure what to really say to her. What could he even say to her? He then slowly lowered his head to gaze at the floor again. He wondered what she was thinking. Did she loathe him with every fiber of her being? He was afraid to open his mouth and ask.

"....I'm sorry for not finding you, Fiyori...."

Alba was asking him how he was feeling. He still felt like he wasn't feeling that great. He was feeling sore, numb, panicky on the inside, exhausted and slightly woozy. He felt like he was about to pass out. He hadn't been able to sleep, drink and eat properly. He had to tell Alba that he was not okay. Right?

"Alba, thank you for taking care of me. I-"

He got distracted by Fiyori suddenly hugged him. It took him by surprise. He never thought that she would have done that. He wanted to do the same. Hug her back with his good arm. But she pulled away before he even had a chance to react. He felt a little sad when she did. But it was okay. She was here. And he needed to ask her how she was doing.

"S-So...." He paused for a while and he cleared his throat, biting his lower lip lightly. "Are you okay, Fiyori? No one hurt you, did they?"

He wondered if she would ask him about Jerry or Bernadette. If she wanted to talk about them, then he would try to explain himself about the both of them.

He raised his hand towards his hurt shoulder, however, he didn't touch it. His hand was just lingering about an inch or two away from it. He wondered if it would give him more problems for how long he knew that he would have left. He was thinking that he would not survive to the end. He didn't have that much faith that he would because of.... Ty. If he saw him again.... Brendan knew that things would turn into something much more worse.

Alba had moved away so that he and Fiyori could talk to each other. He guessed that it was good that she was doing that. Although, he had honestly wanted her to stay by his side. At least he could see where she was and that she was not in danger. He just hoped that no one would walk in and start to threat them or try to attack them. He didn't want to deal with someone like that right now.

"I took an arrow to the shoulder." He joked badly.

He was trying to lighten up the mood for Fiyori. He wanted to make the atmosphere more positive and light-hearted. He just honestly want to hear Fiyori laugh. It would feel like a normal day like they were back at school. If though they weren't....

"Joking asides, Jae did this to me. I was trying to telling him how sorry I was about Asha. But.... he didn't respond that well to me." He said in a quiet voice and then he thought of Bernadette and Jerry. ".....I killed.... I.... I did some things that I shouldn't have. I made mistakes, some really bad ones at that. I can't take back what I did to Jerry and.... and.... B-Bernadette."

He paused to take a shaky breath.

"I hate what I've become, Fiyori...."

Both girls were trying to make him feel less lousy and loathesome of himself. He felt like it was working. He was glad to have two people who were trying to understand. Fiyori was thinking that he was a good person, but he knew that not everyone would agree with her. Bernadette's family.... Ty.... Many other friends that he was sure would try to make him pay. Like Michael wanted to still avenge Jerry. Because he saved a girl who he still had no clue who she was. He had an uneasy feeling about not knowing who she was. He should have followed her... And then what? What would have happened? Would things have been more different? He couldn't think about it too much. He had to pay attention to Alba and Fiyori. He wondered if Fiyori would want to stay with them longer. Maybe they would have an alliance. He would like to have her around. Alba seemed really welcoming to have her around, so he was sure that they could convince her to not leave.

He stared at Jerry's weapon that was beside him and he felt more determined not to give up. He had to keep going and put on a more braver face for the girls. Right now, they were both speaking about Alba's rifle and he wasn't sure what he could add in the conversation. He wasn't a big fan of guns anyway. They still made him feel fearful of them. But for some reason, Fiyori wanted to use it? He wasn't sure how he felt about that. He didn't distrust Fiyori for wanting to use a weapon if she had to, but....

Would she be alright with taking someone else's life? What if....? What if...?

"Fiyori...." He had a bit of a confused expression on his face and then he glanced towards Alba unsurely. "....Alba could practice with how to use it. I mean, I may not be comfortable with her using it.... But we made a promise to protect each other. Right, Alba?"

His mind wandered back to the kiss Alba planted on him earlier and he instinctly raised his fingers to his lips. His lips that were now dry. He smiled slightly behind his fingers for a second and it faded as he needed to be more serious for this situation.

Brendan was relieved that the situation hadn't turned into a disaster. The girls were being calm about the rifle. Alba was right about the fact that the three of them do need to learn how to use the rifle and they definitely needed to practice. He still didn't like the idea of using it, but now he had no choice if he wanted to protect Alba and Fiyori.

"Target practice, huh?"

He suddenly thought of something that had been with him since the beginning of this. It was still in his bag. He wondered why he never got rid of it. Maybe it would be the time for him to let it go. It would be perfect for them to use as practice.

"Actually, I have something that we could use as a target...." He offered to the girls, he carefully unzipped his bag and he got out the can of cat food, smiling at the girls awkwardly. "My weapon.... I don't have a use for it anyway. So this is the best time for us to use it."

Brendan had set up the can for Alba and he had backed away from it as far as he could. He didn't want to get hit by a bullet by accident. The terrorists would possibly laugh their asses off at that happening. He really wished that he could get his hands on them. Personally. And then what? He would get a bullet in his head if he tried to attack them. Besides, wherever they were, there was nothing that Brendan could do on that part. So he had to deal with what was happened right now. Target practice at a can with a gun. He could understand why they had to do this. It was to survive for as long as they could and then one person could go back home.

Home....My family. I miss them so much. I hope that they would never find out about this. I don't want them to see me as a terrible human being. I want them to remember me as me before all this. I don't want them to be more hurt by knowing that I killed two people. I don't want them to suffer through that.

Brendan felt himself almost choking up. But he stopped himself from bursting into a sobbing wreck. He couldn't afford to get emotional right now. He had to put on a face to keep himself under control. No matter how hard it was to do so.

He then thought about the grenade launcher that was still at the cliffs. And that Bernadette was still there. Still dead and gone because of him. He needed to get his weapon back if it was still there. It would definitely help if the three of them had it. Besides, Fiyori could possibly have it if she wanted to. Then he could say goodbye and how sorry he was to Bernadette. Just to get a bit of closure. He thought that Fiyori might want to see her as well. He wasn't sure. He had to ask-

The gun went off in Alba's hands and Brendan flinched out of a moment of fear. His heart was pounding a little faster in his chest and his breath became more nervous for a few seconds. He really, really hated this. He was more or less preferring not to use the rifle at all. But he had to. He couldn't back out of all of this now.

"Ha, ha...." He let out a small, shaky chuckle and he rubbed his hand over his chin, feeling himself sweating a little. "I guess that we should be more careful with it. I just hope that no one else had heard that. I really don't want people to come running in here right now."

Brendan was glad that Alba was agreeing with him and he hoped that they would be able to make this a safe place for the three of them. He really didn't need someone like Isabel or Kimiko to come in and possibly kill all of them. No, they needed to block the entrance for a while until they were ready to leave. Hopefully in the morning so that they would find people who were important. Jonathan, Dorothy, Maxim, Candice, Byrony.... Ty. He actually wanted to find him and then Brendan wasn't sure what would happen next.

"Alba, would you like a helping hand?" He asked politely as he generally wanted to help her and he wanted to talk to her about what happened between them in the chapel. He thought that it would be better to talk about it sooner rather than later.

Before Brendan even got a chance to move anything to help Alba out, he was suddenly deafened by Fiyori firing the rifle and he cursed softly under his breath. This was really making him feel like he didn't want to be there anymore. But he had to deal with it. He had made his choice about continuing to carry on a long time ago. Using that weapon was really important. Important for their survival.

"That really is too loud.... We have to handle it somehow. Also we should only have a few more turns with the rifle. I think that we should make sure to save as much ammo as we can." Brendan said to them both as he approached Fiyori to take the rifle from her and he was uneasy to be holding in his his hands. "Just in case, we run into people that we might have to take down to defend ourselves.... Or if they give us no choice."

You did have a choice with Jerry and Bernadette, Brendan. You had the choice to walk away to let them live. But you didn't do that. You chose the other option....

Brendan shook his head and shoved his thoughts into the back of his mind. He had to move on. He couldn't let himself get distracted by the thought of them. He had to keep going forward.

He looked over at the the can and he took a few breathes. Breathe in, breathe out. Breathe in, breathe out. He then tried to positioned the rifle in his hands carefully. His shoulder was still hurting, the ringing in his ears was slowly fading away. He took aim at the can, squinting a little.

Then he fired.

--

Later on, Brendan was watching the two girls as they were sleeping. The three of them had taken a few more shots at the can but it hadn't been hit at all. But Brendan had been fine with that. They ate some food and talked for a while afterwards. Mostly about anything that came to their minds. It had felt nice and normal. It felt like a normal day at school. He wished he was there right now. Then they took turns to be on watch over each other as they slept. Fiyori was first, then Alba and then him. He was staring down at the table that was in front of him and he wondered if Jonathan and Candice were alright. He had to search for them soon.

Then he heard the speakers come to life. The announcement was starting again. This was something that he was always dreading to hear. He had to wake up the girls.

"Alba! Fiyori! Wake up! The announcement is starting!"

Brendan made sure to listen as carefully as he could to it. Alessio had killed some girl named Maria. He wondered if he would run into him at some point. There must be a chance for Brendan to talk some sense into Alessio. But maybe he wouldn't be able to. It could go both ways. Isabel had killed once more. That wasn't that surprising to Brendan that much. Jerry Fury again. He hoped he wouldn't see Jerry again. Oh. Coleen had killed Arthur. That one was a bit of a shock to him. Maybe it had been an accident? Jeremy had shot Junko. He wondered what Fiyori thought about that. She and Jeremy were friends, right? Alvaro and Nancy.... Two known killers were dead. And all he felt at first was relief and then he felt pity and a bit of guilt.

Then he heard a name that he never wanted to hear.

.....

Michael Crowe.

Michael Crowe was dead. Really dead. At the hands of Alex Tarquin.

.....

Brendan got up to his feet and he walked up to the table in front of him. He then struck the table with his fist. It made a loud noise and then he hit it again and again and again. Not caring that his knuckles were starting to bleed.

"Michael.... You idiot. You fucking idiot!"

Brendan stopped himself from hearing the girls both saying that they were sorry. It felt so strange for him to be angry and upset about Michael. He had bullied him. And then he tried to kill him. Was it because all he could think of was Jonathan? Michael was gone and Brendan knew how Jonathan would react. God, he never wanted Michael to end up dead. Everyone that was dead, he never wanted them to be gone. Even some that he didn't know at all.

He let out a shaky breath and he stared down at the blood on his knuckles. He guessed that he had got out some of his anger. So why did he still feel like he needed to take it out on someone? Someone like Alex Tarquin. If he found him, Brendan had a feeling that he knew what he was going to do.

"Don't.... Don't apologize.... I just needed to let that out. I'm sorry about that, really." He gave the girls a weak smile and his gaze was on the rifle for a second. He was tempted to take it and then go out there to get make sure that Alex wouldn't hurt anyone else. "I don't think I am ever going to be okay, Alba. We.... We need to go and find Jonathan. Because Michael was his friend.... Please, Alba, we have to...."

Brendan slowly felt like he was calming down and he was just glad to have Alba by his side. He didn't know what he would have done without her there. He knew that they had to find their friends and then they had to think of a plan. A new plan would be good to have. He still wanted to make Alex pay for taking Jonathan's best friend away, even if Michael had made his life a living hell. If he saw Jonathan again.... He had to be there for him like Alba was doing the same for him.

"Yeah, yeah. You're right. Thank you, Alba. Really. I mean it." He smiled at her genuinely and then he focused his eyes onto Fiyori. "It would be great to have you with us, Fiyori. It's up to you."

Fiyori will possibly be a good asset to you, Brendan. The more help, the more better.

Brendan was happy to have Fiyori coming along with them. Three people were better than just two. Now they were ready to get moving. He couldn't stay where he was forever. He had to get out there. Even if it was risky and possibly the wrong decision to make.

He was willing to make that decision. He had to stay with Alba and Fiyori.

"Alright."
