(Kaitlyn Greene continued from Dysthemia Morte)

Day six. Felt nice.

Apparently the library had burned down. Too bad. She'd liked it there. Plus she'd left her shield there. So Kaitlyn guessed that was gone, which kinda sucked. She'd had the admittedly silly idea that at some point she'd need it for whatever reason and be able to head back there and retrieve it in a moment in need.

Ah well. Being the best fucking planner and the most forward-thinking person here didn't mean every idea would pan out.

She sat on the rocky floor and it felt nice against her ass and she took the crossbow out of her bag and aimed it off at the horizon. Felt kinda like pulling the string and seeing just how far one of those bolts could fly but... nah, had to conserve her ammunition.

But yeah. Just some of them, eh?

In any case, it was now late morning and Kaitlyn guessed the floor might be getting damp soon enough. So it was about time to prep for that and get her bag to some higher ground. This was a big day. And no one was around to share it with her yet, which sucked, but hey, gotta keep hoping, right? She'd had the chance before but didn't take it. Of course, she hadn't had a gun then. It was...

Kaitlyn furrowed her brow and thought. Irene. That was it. Irene was dead now, of course. It'd been Irene, Hannah Kendrickstone, and someone else, Kaitlyn couldn't remember and didn't give that much of a shit to try. Of course, fat lot of good Irene's shotgun had ending up doing her. Kaitlyn should've just grabbed it then.

Huh, speaking of grabbing guns, hadn't she left Mia right outside the library? ...Fuck her corpse was probably like half-charred now or something. That... was weirdly unnerving, and Kaitlyn didn't know why. Maybe she should've taken the time to bury her. Maybe she was kinda still worried about Mia rising up all zombie-style and seeking revenge, and her being all burned up would make that even freakier.

Yeah, no. She had to get the zombies and invasions out of her head, Christ. There were so many better post-apocalyptico scenarios. Like the one she'd just read. Like the one she was in now.

Kaitlyn grinned at that and looked out at the ocean, crossbow dangling in one hand.

Kaitlyn turned around, crossbow still dangling low in one hand. 'Cause she could totally recognize that voice.

"Alba?"

She smiled. Remembered the last time this had happened and her smile faltered a bit. Of course, she'd always liked Alba. Alba was no Vanessa.

"Holy shit. I... Hey. How you doing?"

Alba was the Red Queen. Or the Reina Rose, whatever. Kaitlyn'd always thought it was a shitty derby name, but she'd only teased Alba about that once or twice.

And oh yeah.

"...Nice gun."

She glanced to the entrance to the cove. Alba would be perfect.

Fiyori? Really?

God, Alba could have shitty taste in friends. Present company... included.

"I haven't seen anyone like recently. I've just been, you know, chilling here a bit, trying to relax. Trying to... deal, I guess."

Kaitlyn studied Alba's face for a second. Open, sure. That was Alba.

It felt a lot lot Mia, and Kaitlyn bit her lip.

Then shoved that feeling deep and snapped herself back to reality here. Yeah. It was like Mia. Better than Mia. There'd be no more doubts, least of all from her.

Although Alba was already talking about friends and getting back to them. Yeah, and like Mia, Alba was just gonna dance merrily into a goddamn hole of Trust Yer Friends and let it swallow her alive in the end, wasn't she? Maybe if Kaitlyn knew that Alba had more than that, had more than the base physical-strength here but... like it wasn't even like the girl was trying a Vanessa-style lie, here either, Kaitlyn could fucking tell that. She could read Alba like a book.

Hey.

"But yeah, I dunno. Good to see you too, though. Really. Like, a friend."

She ambled a few steps over to where her bag lay, zipper open, and pulled out a tattered paperback.

The Girl Who Owned a City

"Been reading, haha; got this book from the library, uh before it burned down I guess. That sounded kinda crazy. It was actually my favorite book as a kid. You ever read it?"

"Yeah, my dad, actually he read it back in the 70's as a kid and kinda passed it on to me. It was about this like plague, kills off everyone over the age of 14 or so and this one girl really ends up taking charge. Standing up. I dunno if it was great writing; I'm not a big reader or anything, but it really like stuck with me."

Of course Alba hadn't read it. Of course she couldn't understand.

She dropped the book back on top of her bag.

"But don't know what happened at the library, I haven't been there for a few days and..."

Well, she'd walked into that, all right. But that was actually fine. That was better, really. Gave her a chance to throw it out there for Alba and see what happened first.

"Yeah. It was a decent place. Shit went down, though. I was with Alan Banks. He... was a bit nuts."

Kaitlyn tensed her neck muscles.

"I..."

And yep, here came the questions. And oh, there went any doubt that might've been still lingering.

Frankly, Kaitlyn would've respected Alba more if her derby buddy had at least shown the guts to come up and, hell she didn't know. Scream at her. Demand answers. Threaten to hunt her down or fuck, shoot first and ask questions later like Min-Jae apparently had. If Kaitlyn ran into Min-Jae later, she'd have to give the moody fuck a nod of appreciation.

"...Not like 100%, but Vanessa Stone the other day. She was pissed; it might've gotten violent but I took off. Been alone mostly the last day."

Sure. It could've been like that.

"The whole thing shouldn't have happened, you know? Alan, he strung me along, it was stupid of me, and... fuck. It's the past now."

Kaitlyn smiled. Tried to make it a sad one. She could feel that old feeling finally coming back in the pit of her guts, and oh god it was welcoming now.

She turned to look out at the ocean for a bit.

"Anyway, you should get back to look for them. I'll take off soon. I'm just... hey just take a look out there with me for a minute, will ya Alba? I mean, nothing else there's no view like that in Kingman."

"Welcome."

She levelled the crossbow at Alba.

"Hey."

Waited for her to turn around.

"Stay cool. Toss your gun that way. Don't want it getting wet."

Toll Booth was back in session.

"Don't worry."

God, that sounded dumb even to Kaitlyn.

"I'm just trading with you. I'm not gonna shoot you unless you try something dumb and no offence I don't think you can shoot that thing. So drop the gun. And your bag. Up there by mine. I got another gun in my bag. It's yours."

Do it Alba, cause it would so much of a fucking waste if you didn't and Kaitlyn had to end this before it reached the next level.

A couple beads of sweat formed above her eyes and the feeling kept growing.

"Thanks. Thanks."

Alba was perfect for this. Too perfect, really; cause once she dropped the gun Kaitlyn knew there was no way she could leave it at Toll Booth.

"Now just in my bag, there's a gun on top. It's this micro-uzi thing. Not as sweet as yours, but uhhhh, lighter. Take it out, it's yours."

Cause there always had to be a sporting chance.

"By the barrel, Alba. Don't let your hands get near that trigger."

Or at least the illusion of one.

"What's going on..."

What's going on is this is a party that's never gonna stop and a feeling that can't end.

"Like holy shitsicles Alba you know what's going on! I know you, you're not fucking dumb but what's going on?"

Granted, this specific situation was... oh she had to admit, kinda out there. But you had to think outside the box. If you wanted to own it.

What's also going on is that Toll Booth was complete. It was dead. 'Cause it might've been enough for Day One but on Day Six you needed more. You needed to up the dosage. You needed to go from a few straggling zombies to the whole goddamn horde.

She stepped towards Alba. Just in case the other girl was getting the idea to bolt now.

Hahaha. Bolt. Like the crossbow bolts. Fuck, that was a good one.

"What's going on is that... me, you no one's gonna get to the end we just keep chickening out when it counts. Keep the gun in one hand there, Alba. I like you. You're good. But you're..."

Alba was what? She wasn't anything. She just wasn't enough. She was just a friend. And that's why it had to be her. It had to be her since the rush was going so far beyond anything she'd expected now because of that.

Kaitlyn took another step and held the bow steady.

"You got a chance here, Alba. Don't do anything I don't tell you to and I promise... I fucking promise I will not shoot you. Now let's walk. Into the cove there. We're gonna play a game.

"It's called High Tide."

"Yeah, I just made it up."

Okay, so Alba wasn't gonna move. Kaitlyn stepped forward and tensed the custom trigger with with finger.

That got her going.

"It's a game of... The tide's coming in here soon. We're gonna welcome it. That's it. I did this back on like day one, but I fucking lost my nerve. I blinked and took off when it was like at my knees."

She led Alba down into the cove. It felt damp. Kaitlyn could feel the the pressure about to drop, she could almost see it in the rocks. It felt like the walls were about to fucking close in here.

It felt spectacular.

"There's only one rule. Don't blink. You blink and try to run, I gotta shoot ya. You blink and try to shoot me... well good fucking luck getting a shot off before again, I shoot you. Cause I'm good at this. I used to go turkey shooting with my dad, you know that?"

There was one more rule, of course.

"I blink and try to run early, then I don't deserve it and you shoot me. Or you can run yourself, I don't give a shit. But if you can hang on long enough... you're free to go, cause I'll be going too. If you can make it out."

Let her go.

"Let you go. Why?"

She let that question hang over the air a bit.

"What, cause I like you?"

See, and now Kaitlyn was starting to get pissed.

"Are you gonna wander around this island like 'lalalalalalala' some more and then die because some crazy kid finally shoots you, Alba? Because you obviously fucking are, I know you too good. Half our goddamn class is already dead."

Because the whole thing was she christkilling knew that Alba had the potential to be more than that. That was why she was so perfect for this! If Kaitlyn had dragged Mia back from the dead and put her here... well that chick would already be blubbering on the floor. Alba at least had a chance, but she just... wasn't... getting it.

"Hey... in derby, you just gonna scream 'aaaah' and duck when some bigass dyke tosses an elbow at you or are you gonna take it and then knock her on her ass?"

Kaitlyn nudged the scuffed edge of her shoe on the ground. Digging in a bit. Had to keep her stance ready here because any moment, it was gonna start.

"I've.... lost my nerve so many times here. I gotta do this, or I'm not gonna last either, you know."

Oh.

Was that hesitation?

"Next..."

Kaitlyn coughed. Held her crossbow steady. It really was a beautiful thing. Who the fuck had come up with this idea? One pull of the trigger and the bolt flies out and embeds itself wherever you want.

"Next there's what, stick around and what? I stuck around all the last couple days doing nothing and being gutless and guess what, I felt like crap. Next there's..."

Kaitlyn heard it a second before anything else. Man, she had great senses.

The water started flowing in. Slowly at first. Just like day one. Let it build.

"You'll feel it Alba. Once you get it, it's... best feeling in the world."

Oh man. Oh man ohmanohmanohman.

Kaitlyn could feel her heart jackhammering as the water oh-so-amazingly slowly flowed over her ankles. Yeah.

"Yeah."

It was worth everything.

Just breathe in and out and let the feeling in.

The water was creeping past her shins. So she'd already beaten last time. That was pretty kickass. Not even close to enough to prove it, of course. But it was a start.

And Alba just kept trying to ruin the moment.

"Just a few more minutes..."

Kaitlyn stared over her crossbow at her.

"Better lift up your gun. It's gonna get soaked and those things don't work too well underwater. And keep it in one hand, duh."

Her dad had taught her that. He'd taught her everything. Kaitlyn realized that now. Sure, there were fights at times, there was the whole 'Dad, you suck!' spiel she guessed every teenager went through. There was Melanie, when it should have just been the two of them. There was the time he'd caught her stealing fifty bucks from him and backhanded her across the face. But there was one thing he'd given to her above all, beyond driving her halfway across the state to derby and letting her set up an account on PokerStars with his credit card. Because he'd also refused to buy her skates because she was old enough to find a way to pay for them herself. Because when she'd busted out the first time he'd forced her to realize that that was her own mess to deal with. Because he'd taught her to do one thing, and that was own it.

And she'd be making Keller Greene so proud of her.

"Alba... Christ. How strong are you, huh? You just wanna... Okay, you ask yourself one thing. What's the size of your dream?"

Did she dream of winning or did she dream of even surviving or did she dream of just hoping she could hang out and somehow make it to the end?

Cause Kaitlyn dreamed. And there were no more dreams of shit like just hoping you could stay alive another day without earning it.

"Cause if you actually want to live? That's your dream? Then this is it! Own it, and let yourself fucking feel!"

And just like before it was coming in faster and faster and it was almost up to her waist.

"Yeah, well my dream was to move to Vegas and fuck around and gamble and play roller derby, but this is better, Alba! This is... lift your gun up a bit higher."

Yeah. No chance Alba could get both hands on it, aim and fire. See, Kaitlyn never said this game was totally fair. But Alba, poor Alba was getting close to breaking point and Kaitlyn couldn't have that. Not yet.

"Alba... I don't want to kill you. You will always be my friend. And you haven't... you're so close. Now let me feel it a minute more."

Not yet because the feeling was exploding in her body now and Kaitlyn wished she could close her eyes and let it sweep over her. It was surging through the pit of her guts because she had guts and she knew it now and it was stiff and intoxicating like nothing else.

She kept breathing. "Own it," she muttered to herself.

"Own it. Own the city."

It was orgasmic.
