((Ty Yazzie Continued From Topic Title))

On the bright side of things, this was the first time he'd been able to find a bed in this place. It felt good to lay down on something that wasn't hard as rock for once. After all that running and lifting and screaming he might just be due a rest. Could fool himself into thinking he was gonna go back and find Clarice and Keith after he'd had a chance to lay down, like they weren't already long gone.

On the other hand he couldn't help but stare at the plaque on the wall. Goddamn, this place was fucked long before they got into it. In a twisted kinda way he had to wonder if all of them dying was even gonna register compared to what could have gone on here. Ty didn't know much about asylums and the like, but he'd heard stories about the old places like this. If a lobotomy was their idea of a moment worth celebrating, he didn't wanna see what they kept in the dark.

Just a distraction though. Something to keep his mind off of everybody. It was a real mess he was in this time, but the worst part? He just wasn't sure he had the strength to try and fix it anymore. Could maybe consider the fact that he only directly hurt Conrad getting off easy, all things considered. Couldn't get Clarice's eyes out of his head though, or the way she stumbled over talking to him. After everything she was still looking at him like that.

How would Atsa look at him if he somehow made it home? Or mom and dad? Hell, even Marcus?

Maybe he didn't wanna find out anymore.

Ty knew her. Some friend of Clarice's he'd seen from time to time. She'd stuck a hell of a lot more in his head once he started hearing her name damn near everyday on the announcements. Kimko'd been busy these last few days, and for a moment it looked like she was about to get right back to it with him.

'cept she didn't. For some reason she didn't draw on him, just stopped and stared until her hand left the gun. Ty sat up real slow to show that he wasn't up to nothing. Cracked his neck with his palm around his chin and winced. "Second thoughts? Not complainin', mind, just surprised." He rolled over to sit with his legs hanging off the side of the bed. If he remembered right, she couldn't talk. If that's what she was looking for they'd have to figure something out. He was more inclined to do that than get shot, though. Least for now.

"I ain't lookin' for trouble. If you're tryin' to lay down I'll move on, you can have this one."

It seemed she was fine with him sticking around and wasn't about to shoot him, so Ty didn't get up. He didn't know much sign so they probably weren't gonna get real deep, but he could pick up the broad strokes of simple shit like that. That might be good enough for them to both come out of this a little better. All bets were off.

Ty ran a hand through his hair and sighed, staring off above her through the doorway. "Y'know, I heard your name out there a few times. You're a murderer."

'nother short pause. Still didn't look her in the eye, just kept rubbing his head and staring off into the distance. "Can't seem to be angry about that though, 'cuz you didn't take anybody from me."

His eyes came down on her for just a moment. "Two or three people dead and I can't work myself up cuz I didn't know 'em. Barely even got the energy to get pissed off about the folks I did care about anymore."

They left again, this time to the plaque on the wall.

"Ain't that fucked."

Awhile ago they mighta never had this conversation. Seeing someone like her in all his foam and fury probably would have ended in one of them dead. But here they were, having a polite conversation about her being a killer.

Didn't know quite how to feel about that.

"Nah. 'spose we can't. Can only change ourselves."

Ty squared his gaze on her again, but there wasn't any of the anger or conviction or, hell, even curiosity that might be expected from the way they were talking. Wasn't much left in them at all anymore. Not even sadness. They were just...tired. He didn't say anything more. They said enough.

There'd been a few things keeping Ty going these last few days. Anger. Hate. Hope. Love. Stubbornness. Could pick your poison. By now they'd all misted up into different people. He could see them there in the room, hovering around him.

Conrad. Brendan. Isabel. Harry. Bee. Lizzie. Atsa. Marcus. Mom. The old man. Chaplin. Hell, even Beans.

Everybody'd spent some time on his shoulder these last few days at one time or another. Holding him back, urging him on, calming him down. He'd seen it all from time to time, most clearly when he was all strung out from not sleeping. Nah. That wasn't quite true. He'd seen it all most clear when he was sleeping. Matter of fact he'd just about run into a vision of that relaxing over here. He could feel it in his bones, that weight of everybody who meant so much to him creeping closer and closer in. Even when his eyes shut tight to try and think, Ty could see them all real clearly. Right back into their eyes. Especially the eyes as they drilled in around him.

Right 'round the circle they all looked at him the same way Clarice did.

His eyes were wet when he opened them back up to look at her. There was something in them now. Something real dark that he figured neither of them wanted to face, but here they were. His voice cracked as he spoke again.

"You ever wonder if you still got a home to go back to?"

Yeah. That about added up with his expectations. He couldn't look at her after that.

"Doesn't matter. 'spose we probably won't find out."

They were gonna die here anyway. One person out of everyone was gonna get out of here, and if the two of them were this fucked up already, he didn't wanna imagine what kinda shape they'd be in. What kind of person could actually get out of here and still be even sorta functional in the real world? Couldn't say he could picture it. Couldn't say he wanted to.

Ty looked up at the plaque on the wall again. Hell of a way to go. Right about now, though, it was starting to look merciful. Might be the guilt talking.

He'd turned his back to a killer. Thought didn't really set in until he heard her starting to go. Heard her hesitate. Maybe pondered for a moment how many ways this might be a bad idea. But his eyes were fixed on the plaque. Every slow step drew him closer to it. There wasn't a detail that escaped his eyes in that pause.

Kimiko was right behind him. She had a gun. She had more kills to her name than he could recall. And she hadn't said nothing the whole time they spoke that would lead him to believe she wouldn't put one in him. He should rush her. Take a tumble. At least make her look him in the eye when she did it. Anything to make it cost just a little more on her end, even if it was inevitable.

But don't that picture look dusty?

A hand came up to wipe away the grime from the gold, but it never made it all the way. There was the crack of her gun. The sound of his body hitting the wall. The thud of it slumping to the floor.

Ty didn't say anything more. Didn't cry out. Not so much as a rasp. Just stared a head until the bullet split flesh and tore the breath from his lungs.

Never was much a man for words. No reason to start now.
