((Isabel Ramirez continued from The Virgin Sea))

Isabel sighed, her joints aching and her wounds crying out in pain.

They had run for quite a while, only slowing down to a jog once they had gotten a significant distant from the shoreline, and only slowing down to a walking pace once they could see the asylum in the distance.

Exhausted, the two of them had entered the asylum and searched for a place to rest for a while. Enough time had passed between Asha's death and the present moment that Isabel wasn't worried about running into Asha's potentially murderous companions now that they had returned to the area.

Lily had been silent as usual, but Isabel hadn't actually bothered to start a conversation with her, partly due to her own exhaustion and partly because Lily could barely stand once they stopped running.

But now the two of them were relatively well, no longer breathing heavily and, in Lily's case, struggling to take another step. The two of them were in a relatively safe place once again, and Isabel could interrogate her friend over why she lied.

"So..." Isabel began, in her usual awkward manner of starting conversations with Lily. "About what Eliza said... I didn't realize you were a part of the Luz family..."

She let her words sink in for a bit, enjoying the potential fear that Lily would no doubt be experiencing.

"So I suppose that explains why you wanted to kill me so badly..." Isabel paused, considering exactly what she wanted to say. "It makes sense in hindsight, I guess. And if it makes you feel better, I'm sorry that Tina's death hurt you so much."

Isabel shrugged, her voice growing artificially melancholy. "But that's just the way this place is. Kill or be killed and all that. If you had wound up killing some of my friends, for instance, I wouldn't have had any hard feelings towards you. Heck, I've killed a few of my friends myself."

She coughed into her fist, her throat's ragged state catching up to her. "It's... it's really awful what this game does to people huh?" She began again, as they approached the entrance to the art therapy room. "Important to remember that the people who put us here are the bad guys, not any of us."

"Hmph. Whatever, see you inside."

To say that Isabel was at all surprised by Lily's sass at this point would be patently untrue, but unlike the other sass which actually got on Isabel's nerves, a simple shut up was the kind of reaction that Isabel enjoyed getting. Putting her targets in a state where they have no clever retorts and can only tell her to shut up was practically what she lived for before the kidnappings.

Isabel rounded the corner to where the door into the art therapy room was and pressed it open, immediately noting the intense smell of rot filling the air, turning it rancid. She closed her eyes and gagged, before opening them back up and noticing that Cass Prince was sitting extremely still on the floor right next to her.

She sighed, pinching her nose with her fingers in frustration. She wasn't in the mood for yet another fight or yet another confrontation. It was fun to hear her victims cry out in pain as she killed them, but it was also incredibly tiring, and Isabel was already tired enough. She looked at Cass again, the fear in the other girl's eyes evident enough that she could possibly tolerate being in the same vicinity as her.

Isabel sighed again, releasing the hold she had on her nose and once again noting the smell before she spoke.

"So... sup, Cass?"

"I see..."

Isabel looked back in the room, the stench slightly less overwhelming than when the door had been flung open initially. "If you wanted to check it out you could've just... run in there and opened the window? Oh except that window might not open... hum."

She shrugged her shoulders, relaxing herself somewhat back into the social persona that she had before the kidnapping. "Alternatively you could've just sat in there for a while and tolerated it. Your nose would start ignoring the smell once enough time passed... or at least I think that's how that works."

She looked back at Cass, seeing that same fear reflected in her eyes once again. Despite her obvious discomfort, she didn't seem to be in a hurry to run away. Perhaps if she decided to stick around long enough for Isabel to get her energy back then she'd make an easy kill. Or, alternatively, she could serve as a replacement for the unruly and dangerous Lily. Cass was one of the sweet types, and didn't actually try to kill Isabel, unlike Lily. She could make for a much safer ally.

"Food for thought," Isabel muttered mindlessly, under her breath.

She shut the door again, before sitting down next to Cass and opening up her bag with her free hand and flicking her eyes over in Cass' direction. "Say, want a snack?"

"Alrighty. Suit yourself."

Isabel pulled out some of her bread and munched on it loudly, paying no mind to either Cass or Lily.

Unfortunately for her, it seemed that Cass was far too afraid of her to be swayed into being her morality-improving ally like Lily was. If Cass wasn't willing to stick around and make her look better, then she had no reason not to just gut Cass at the first chance she got. A bit of food and some sleep was probably all she needed to be ready to go again, in spite of her still aching wounds.

The room stayed silent for several minutes, except for the sounds of Isabel noisily chewing on her food. She absentmindedly looked over her fingernails, getting slightly annoyed at how long and unsightly they were getting. She would kill for a set of nail clippers and a file, easily.

Glancing over at Cass, she was tempted to ask if the girl had a set of nail clippers on her person, before deciding against it and looking back over at Lily. Ruminating as usual, with the bloodied sickle sitting on the ground in front of her. She smirked as she finished up the last of her meal, taking satisfaction in the fact that Lily would no doubt try to meekly justify that to the both of them later. There was nothing Lily could try to hold over Isabel's head now, and she no doubt knew it.

Isabel stood back up, nabbing her sickle from off the ground next to Lily, making it clear that she still didn't trust Lily with any weapons. She quickly cleaned it of Eliza's blood with her already-ruined sweater, before opening the door to the art therapy room and walking inside, doing her best to ignore the smell.

Flopping onto one of the couches in the room, Isabel called back out to the girls outside, her voice taking on a somewhat exhausted tinge. "I'm going to go ahead and clock out early, don't mind me."

With her weapons stowed and her arm around her bag, Isabel finished off one of her water bottles before quickly passing out from exhaustion.

...

Isabel opened her eyes, morning light peering in through the window.

She sat up, getting her bearings on everything around her. It was some time before the announcements, since they hadn't woken her up, and the objects in the room was completely undisturbed from when she had gone to sleep. Lily and Cass were nowhere to be found. Isabel wondered if Lily had finally lost her composure and run off, feeling the slightest twinge of regret at the thought of being alone yet again.

Isabel sighed and unzipped her bag, yanking out one of her calorie bars and a water bottle before munching away. The smell from the dead body made eating difficult for her, but she nonetheless made the effort to choke down the food. She needed the energy and nutrients to keep herself strong for the coming days.

She got up from where she was, still munching on the bar, before opening the door and glancing out into the hallway. Lily was sitting outside, seemingly not having moved from where she had been when Isabel went to sleep, and Isabel silently sighed a sigh of relief. Lily didn't even look in Isabel's direction, instead she simply clutched that notepad that she kept on her at all times tightly in her hands. Isabel occasionally wondered what Lily was writing down every morning, but ultimately didn't care all that much. They both just needed to know their respective places in their partnership, nothing more, nothing less. She shut the door behind her and left Lily to her devices, before sitting back down on the couch.

The announcements once again came on as they did each morning, just after she finished off her calorie bar. They announced the deaths of the day, which Isabel once again didn't pay attention to, and announced someone else as winning the best kill award once again. It was something Isabel expected at this point, as it seemed that someone in charge obviously had it out for her.

She shook her head, doing her best to repress her agitation at having lost BKA for the cameras, before leaning her head back against the couch, staring at the ceiling, contemplating anything that came to mind.

It didn't take her long to get bored.

Standing up and hoisting her bag over her shoulder, Isabel pushed the door open and bluntly told Lily that they were going.

((Isabel Ramirez continued in Paradies Naiv))
