((Alice Baker continued from 1ИS∅MИ1∀))

Their search for Sandra bore no fruit. They searched as much of the asylum as they could until they were too tired to continue, but they couldn't find her. It seemed like she had only been gone for a few minutes when they left to find her, so why did she seem to just disappear?

Well, once morning came, their search was effectively over, since the announcements revealed that she had died after falling off the roof. Alice didn't really want to trust anything that the terrorists said, but at the same time... she was pretty sure that the announcements had always been accurate, so she didn't see any reason to doubt it. She felt profound disappointment at the revelation, and that didn't improve when the announcement ended by revealing that thanks to the setup of the Danger Zones, they were now essentially locked in the asylum until their ordeal came to an end.

Alice's hopes of escape were fading. Sandra was dead, they still had no weapons between the three of them, and their movement had been severely restricted. She didn't voice these concerns, though. In fact, she didn't say much of anything after the announcement for fear of bringing the mood down.

Eventually, they found their way to the art therapy room, one of the only places left where they could get a somewhat decent view of the outdoors thanks to the massive structural damage. Alice placed herself on a stool and looked outside, wondering if she would ever be able to experience that sort of freedom again.

Dark clouds were rolling in, and she could hear thunder. Rain was coming.

Alice let her hands rest on her knees as she kept looking out the window, or rather, the gaping hole that used to have a window in the general vicinity. Her thigh was still throbbing every once in a while. She had already gone through a good amount of bandages and antiseptic trying to maintain that wound, but it still kept hurting, even days after the bullet grazed her. At this point she wasn't sure if it would ever completely stop.

It was hard to explain how she felt using any words that weren't synonyms for "miserable". She was tired, stressed, hungry, unsatisfied, and felt that time was running on an hourglass that was on the verge of running out. She had been lucky enough not to die, but not lucky enough to escape or find any way to defend herself. It was a cruel luck. And with all that she had been through, she felt no desire to do anything but sit and wait. She was simply drained.

The room was a canvas of both the faded effects of the old asylum and the fresh death that had coated the room since her class' arrival on the island. And yet there she sat, one of the few living things left after so much suffering had gone on around her.

She turned to look at Bree as the sound of the rain began doing its part to set the mood. She didn't have much to say, only one thing that was on her mind at that moment.

"I'm sorry."

She didn't have anything in particular to apologize for. She was just... sorry. For everything.

Alice felt like she had just been punched in the head. The gunshot hadn't harmed her, but the sound left her ears ringing and her head pounding. Startled, she turned on her stool and dropped to the ground, looking to the entrance to see who had just tried to assassinate her and her friends.

The appearance of Fiyori Senay combined with the rain gave her pause. Her mind returned to that day when Fiyori had walked home with her. She had seemed so nice back then. The present situation was almost like a cruel mockery. Once more they had met each other in a downpour, but now Fiyori had a smoking gun in her hands that she clearly had no qualms about using.

This island really did things to people. Terrible things.

Alice basically had every disadvantage possible. Fiyori was at least a foot taller than her, she had a weapon, and she had killing intent. Alice, by comparison, was unarmed and just wanted herself and her friends to be able to live, which was looking more and more like a tall order with every passing moment.

The rational part of her mind didn't know what to do, so the impulsive part took over. She made the decision to rush Fiyori. The other girl was taller, but she was really skinny. If Alice could get one good shot on her at full speed, she might be able to topple her and escape with Bryony and Candice. She may not have had a weapon, but she had five feet and one hundred pounds of desperation at her disposal, and she was going to use it.

She pushed off with her bad leg, feeling a burning sensation. She didn't care. She was fully focused on tearing across the room to get at Fiyori.

Success! Alice managed to bring Fiyori to the ground, but she still had the issue of the gun to deal with. She couldn't get a good eye of where the weapon was, so she tried to restrain the taller girl as best she could. She wrapped her arms and legs around Fiyori's thin frame, managing to entangle an arm. She wasn't sure if it was Fiyori's dominant arm, but anything that kept her from continuing to attack would be useful.

"Run!" She called out to the others, trying to clear the room before Fiyori would wiggle free. Alice had never been the strong or athletic type, but she had a death grip on the other girl and wasn't planning on letting go anytime soon, at least not until she knew how she would escape this situation once her friends had made it out. Her mind was running at high speed, trying to plan her next move.

Alice fell back as Fiyori pushed her away, the back of her head hitting the floor sharply as she did so. She held her injured head and loudly sucked air through her teeth as she rolled over to look back at Fiyori.

Fiyori was laughing, and it wasn't the kind of laugh that Alice was used to hearing. It wasn't a light chuckle, nor was it a belly laugh like someone had told her a really funny joke. No, this laugh sounded straight-up demented, like something out of a scary movie. It was pretty horrifying to hear coming from an actual person that was only about a foot or two away from her.

Somehow, this situation was even more like a bad dream than it already was. Alice felt like at any moment, one of her friends would wake her up and she would be on the bus, or maybe at home, recovering from a really awful nightmare.

Alice watched Fiyori get to her feet and prepared for the worst, but something weird happens. Fiyori stared her dead in the eyes, but she didn't aim the gun at her. Actually, it looked like she was pointing it away on purpose. Was it really hesitation? Was this the thing that Alice was hoping for? Could she really get through to her?




... No. She couldn't count on that. Diplomacy wouldn't work here. Fiyori came in guns blazing and laughing like a maniac. Alice couldn't trust a word that came out of her mouth, although it looked like talking had gone off the table as an option for her a while ago. She had to get out, and she had to do it fast before Fiyori started getting wild again. She placed her hands on the ground and picked herself up, keeping a sharp eye on Fiyori's gun the whole time.



















Alice's eyes widened as she saw the gun move back towards her.
