((Brendan Harte continued from We Wish To Inform You That Tommorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Classmates))

It should have been me, not her.

That was all that he could think of as he made his way through the hallway of the B block building and he was trying to keep an eye out for any movement. The announcement had just ended and he was honestly still feeling so helpless and emotional. Why was he still alive? Jonathan shouldn't have left him alive. Amanda should still be living in his place, not him. Brendan didn't deserve to live and breathe. Why did Jonathan give him a second chance? Was it to teach him a lesson? To make him suffer more? It was working....

And that only made him want to lash out. Take his anger out on someone who deserved it. Like Jae. Just hearing the way that he killed that girl made Brendan mad. He knew that killing whoever she was, was utterly wrong. But to shoot her when her back was turned? That was just so.... cowardly. Wow, he was being a hypocrite. He basically killed Jerry from behind as well. Still....

Brendan stared down at the revolver that was in his hand. It felt so weird for him to actually be holding a gun. He used to be afraid of them. So why was he not scared of holding this one? Maybe he was accepting that there was no way out of this. No escape for anyone. Only one person can go home.

Only one person can go home....

Brendan slowly down his pace as he was getting close to a corner to turn and he stopped walking completely. He could hear someone's footsteps, his heartbeat was starting to race more quicker, his grip onto the revolver tightened. There was someone coming. Was it a friend? Or was it another killer?

He couldn't take any chances.

He raised the revolver towards the corner and he tried to keep it steady. He had to say something. Would he try and warn them off?

"Who's there?!" He yelled aloud. "I'm warning you, I will not be afraid to put a bullet through your skull!"

That sounded a lot harsher than he had hoped for.

Brendan recognized the voice and he regretted speaking in such a threatening tone of voice. Just hearing Alba's voice was just a huge relief to him. He had wanted to see her again. And now he was given that chance to do so. He couldn't mess things up more now.

"Alba...?"

Brendan rushed around the corner to just see her. There she was. He felt himself smile a little out of habit. He then saw that he still had the revolver raised and he quickly lowered it by his side. Then he cleared his throat awkwardly.

"I-I'm sorry for saying that, Alba. I'm glad to see that you are alright. You're not hurt at all, are you?" He asked worriedly, stepping closer to her slowly. "I was afraid that you were someone who would try to kill me.... Again, I'm so sorry about my attitude, Alba."

Alba was starting to cry in front of him and it honestly caught him by surprise. Maybe it was because Brendan was normally the emotional one and he just never thought that Alba would break down like that. He would be crying along with her right then. But he didn't have the energy to do so. He had used up all his tears when he had been near Amanda's body. Everything was just getting worse and worse. Why has he even threatened Alba like that? He never thought that he would have it in him to say something so cruel and cold.

Alba was still sobbing in front of him and he was just standing there like a bumbling idiot. He had to do something for her. Alba had always been there for him when he needed her. And he wanted to be there for her. He took some steps forward towards her and he stared down at her, trying to think of something positive to say.

Brendan wrapped one of his arms around her, the one without the gun in his hand, and he pulled her into a hug against him. It felt so great to actually be holding her like this. "Hey, hey. Everything is going to be okay, Alba. I should have found you sooner before whatever happened with Kaitlyn...." He paused for a few moments and he rubbed her back gently to try to calm her down. "I'm sure that you have a reason for what happened between you two. I'm sorry for not staying with you, Alba. I thought that you were still with me and Fiyori...."

Brendan stared back into her eyes and he nodded his head slightly. She wanted to tell him what happened and he was willingly to listen to her. He wanted to be a good friend to Alba. He had to at least do something right for a change. He also was curious to know what happened between Alba and Kaitlyn. He was thinking that it must have been a terrible experience for Alba to have done through.

Brendan still had his arm around her and he didn't move it away. He wanted to hold her for a little bit longer. "Sure, sure. Uh.... I agree. I think it would be better if we can stay in one of the rooms here." He commented as he looked around and he felt a little paranoid, hoping that no one would turn up. "I suggest that we should barricade the door as well. If we can find anything to block it with."

Just make sure not to break down in front of her, Brendan.

Brendan took in everything that Alba was telling him in silence. And it was a lot to take in. What Alba had gone through was a lot worse than what he been through. At least he believed she did. Kaitlyn had forced her into making a choice. She forced Alba to shoot her in a very dire situation. Like she wanted Alba to end it for her and to force her to face this brute reality. How was he should to feel about that? It was breaking his heart that Alba was feeling like she was a bad person for what she did. She wasn't. Brendan didn't believe that she was a terrible human being. What could he even say to her to make her believe that she wasn't that?

Brendan stepped closer to where Alba was sitting and he knelt down in front of her, not caring about the filthy floor. He then looked her in her eyes and he was trying to not feel so down for her. He wanted to make things better for her. But he had to try to think of how he would word things to her. How could he change her opinion about herself?

"Alba, you are not a bad person. I.... I know that Kaitlyn was your friend but she forced you into shooting her. She did shoot at you first so what you did was in self-defence. I'm sorry if that sounds pretty harsh from me of all people to say." Brendan said to her, feeling like he was just making things worse. "I think that this situation got to Kaitlyn by the sounds of it. Maybe she wanted you to end it for her in her little twisted way, Alba. Maybe she wanted you to understand that everything that's happening to us is some sick fantasy for a bunch of depraved low-lifes who have nothing better to do than watching teenagers kill each other. I don't know."

Brendan let out a small, tired sigh.

"You're a better person than me, Alba. I stabbed Jerry to save Nancy Kyle. Fucking Nancy Kyle. And I hate myself more for it. I killed Bernadette because I couldn't handle her wanting me to go away. I didn't want to get abandoned by my best friend and for that, I took it out on her and she ended up dying because I was that selfish of a person. And I didn't even realize it until Jon woke me up to the truth!" Brendan's voice had gotten louder with anger boiling through him and he glared down at the ground in front of him, shaking a little. "I'm the bad one, not you, Alba. Sorry for yelling like that. I'm just so tired of it all."

Brendan was silent as Alba was saying her piece to him and he couldn't help but continue to stare at the ground. She was right about one thing. They were both in the same boat. To be honest, everyone else that was still alive were in the same boat. However, the one person he thought that was worthy of going home was sitting right in front of him and he didn't want to tell her that. He still had things that he needed to do and people to see. He had to confront some people who wouldn't be happy to see him. Ty, Jon, possibly Dorothy. He needed to find his allies as well. Maxim, Fiyori, Candice. Were they all safe? He wondered if he would ever see them again. He had to hope that he would. He had to be positive about it.

You need to find Jae, Brendan. You have to make him pay. You can't let him go home.

Brendan looked up and he was trying to glance into Alba's eyes. He had to tell her what he wanted to do. She might not agree with what he wants to do. But it was his choice. His selfish choice that he had been thinking about for a while. He opened his mouth to speak and then he closed it abruptly.

Just tell her, Brendan!

"I..... I want to kill Jae."

Brendan didn't even think that it was because of Jae shooting him. No, it definitely wasn't because of that. He could think of better reasons why he had to stop Jae. He had this growing hatred forming towards Jae because he made him think of himself. A weak coward. It disgusted Brendan to the point that he wanted to see Jae not breathing anymore. But....

"I don't think that he should go home. I think he is too dangerous and a threat to many other people who are innocent here. I honestly can't forgive him for what he did. I've started to have this burning hatred building inside me towards him. Jae makes me think of myself in a bad way. I'm a coward who couldn't do anything right. So I should do the right thing by taking players out, right? It's the decision that I came to. I hope that you can understand that, Alba. And it's not just him I need to take out...." Brendan paused for a few moments and he averted his eyes towards a wall. "I don't really want to say this but...."

Brendan bit down on his lip hard, tasting a bit of blood in his mouth. He was going to regret saying this to her. But he had no choice.

"I have to stop Jon too. I saw him kill.... kill Amanda right in front of me. She was trying to help me because Jon was shooting at me with this gun." Brendan held up the revolver in his hand for Alba to see and then he lowered it again. "Jon said those bullets were supposed to be for me, not her. I wanted him to kill me after Amanda died, but he let me live. And now if I see him again, I will end it. I have to do the right thing. Jon isn't.... Jon isn't himself anymore. Neither is Dorothy. All the people I care about are now.... not who they used to be."

Brendan knew that Alba couldn't understand his reasons. But it sounded like she was trying to understand. Understand why he was getting pushed into a mindset of looking for two people that he needed to take down. Wanted to take down. He couldn't continue to talk to them both. They both didn't seem like they wanted to listen to him. Jae had shot him in the shoulder. Jon almost got him killed with bullets. He couldn't stop them unless he took action himself. He would have to go down a darker path and there was a chance he could never turn back from that path. Could he try to make Alba see his side?

Brendan shifted on his knees a little and he decided to get back up to his feet. "I have to find them, Alba. I know that it might be hard for you understand why I want to do this. But I can't let either of them to go on hurting other people who don't deserve it. Even if I fail.... At least I'll be doing something useful. Right?" Brendan told her as he started to pace back and forth, staring at the revolver in his hand. "I can't even try to reason with them anymore. I've had enough, Alba. I'm sick and tired of being a complete weakling."

He glanced over at Alba with a sad smile. What would he do afterwards? He could go and look for him

".....Then I will have to find Ty. Because.... you know...."

Brendan felt his mindset wavering due to Alba's words. Was she right? Was he just thinking irresponsible about this? Killing Jae and Jon was possibly a really bad idea for him to have. But then.... What if they continued to kill other people? People who deserved a chance to survive this terrible, messed-up situation? Was he really supposed to do nothing? Was that what Alba wanted to do? Maybe he should really think things over. Just to see if he changed his mind or if he didn't.... Then he would have to tell Alba about it.

Brendan stopped his pacing and he turned to face her, letting out an exhausted sigh. "Okay, okay. I'll think it over, Alba. I guess I'm not thinking straight. I just wanted to be as honest as I could with you, Alba." He nodded his head lightly. "I think that we should get moving and...."

Brendan stopped speaking as he was pretty sure that he heard something outside the room. Was that someone's footsteps? Were they a friend? Or were they a foe?

He gave Alba a worried glance. "....Do.... Do you think that we should let whoever that is in here...?"

Brendan nodded quietly. Alba had a good point. It would be better if they stayed quiet and waited for whoever the person was to leave the area. But it seemed that they were not going to move on at the moment and that was making Brendan feel very uncomfortable. He just hoped that they wouldn't try to get into this room. He just couldn't face anyone else right now and he didn't want to feel more paranoid than he already was.

The door was opening and it scraped over the top of the desk. The door was getting open too easily.

So, Brendan's reaction was pretty careless.

He raised the revolver towards the door, his finger was on the trigger unsteadily.

"What do you want?" He snapped out of frustration towards the person outside.

Brendan was looking at a girl that was unfamiliar to him. He was trying to see if he could remember her from school. He remembered a name. Jaime.... Something. But that was pretty much it. He barely even knew her other than her first name. He wasn't going to know everyone here. And that terrified him more. People who he didn't know were strangers to him. This girl with an attitude was a stranger to him. And for that, he was not going to lower the gun.

Just shoot her already, Brendan. One less person for you to worry about....

"No." He said simply. He was really talking to his thoughts he was having but it would appear like he was saying it to Jaime. He couldn't take back that single word now. "....You're not the one who is in control here. I.... I am the one with the gun, not you."

Brendan panicked. His finger accidentally (or had it been purposely?) squeezed the trigger. A shot was fired. The bullet hit the wall. It had been so loud. Brendan's ears were ringing. A wave of slight dizziness came over him and he blinked a few times.

This girl had just made him waste a bullet. And the way she had done it had either been really brave or stupid. Brendan was now picturing that she was both. Still he wasn't happy about it. Alba could have been standing next to him and he could have ended up shooting her instead of the wall. He was just glad that Alba wasn't near him and Jaime at the moment.

"What the hell did you do that for?" Brendan glared at Jaime and the revolver was shaking in his hand. The ringing in his ears was slowly going away. "That was a bad mistake you just made, Jaime."

He now had the gun pointed at Jaime's chest. He didn't speak. He was daring her to make the same move again. He honestly didn't care if he did end up killing her or not.

She would deserve it....

That was the last straw for Brendan. Jaime shouldn't think that it was so easy for her to push him around. He wasn't the same person that he was before. He knew what he was doing was wrong. But he already made his choice beforehand. He didn't want Jaime to get closer to Alba. He had to do it. He couldn't hold back and feel like he couldn't do anything. He wanted to do something! Anything!

He aimed the revolver at Jaime's back. She should have known to never turn her back on an enemy. He would make her regret it.

"Bitch....."

He then pulled the trigger, smiling bitterly.

Brendan had really just shot Jaime. He couldn't even get a second to realize what he had done as she was now getting up and charging at him. He felt himself hesitate. He couldn't stop her from taking a swing at him.

Shoot her again! Take her out, Brendan! You have to do this!

He reacted as the punch connected with his cheek. That hurt like hell. He let out a grunting sound of pain. He was stumbling backwards, almost out of the door. His gun was focused on Jaime's chest. He couldn't back out of this. He made this his choice. His path.

He just continued to smile at Jaime like a mad man. Then he fired at her again.

Brendan's smile was frozen on his face as he stared down at Jaime and he noticed that she wasn't breathing anymore. She was dead. He really had killed her. And he didn't feel anything. Not regret. Not sadness. Not nothing at all. He should feel guilty, right? He guessed he was getting more cold towards--

He felt something against the back of his head and he couldn't breath for a few moments. His smile faded instantly. He lowered the gun in his hand by his side. There was only one person who could be holding a weapon against his head and he didn't want it to be the one person that he wanted to protect with his life. He couldn't get mad at her. He just killed another person in front of her. And this time, he actually meant to kill Jaime unlike Bernadette.

"A-Alba...."
