Mariavel was thankful. Thankful that this girl whom she had just met was helping her. This girl shed threatened to KILL was helping her. Irony, no? but she was thankful. Tori whispered soothing words to her as the two girls sat there like sitting ducks. But Mari could care less. She was happy just sitting here. She didnt even think, that this place might become a danger zone. It was a lottery in a way. But it was one that theyd won.
The announcements music blared on the speakers and Mariavel pushed Tori away a bit. They were still in arms reach, Mars hands on her shoulders. She listened intently to the announcements. Tanesha Lexx
She was dead
. She died
was she feeling guilt? No
not for Tanesha of all people.
"Just a gang whore," Tanesha muttered, a crazed look glistening in her eye as she spoke, "That's all you are. Just a gang whore. Why would you play, whore? What do you have to live for? You have no life to go back to. Nobody's gonna miss you when you're gone. Nobody. Nobody except the guys looking for a prostitute. Rumors have some truth behind them, whore. If they didn't, no one would believe them. You're nothing... just a disgusting piece of trash with nothing to go back to. Nobody wants you back home, that's why they shipped you off. Shipped you off to die on this island!"
Mariavel shuddered as she remembered Taneshas words. They were hurtful. Very hurtful. She
she was wrong though. She wanted to live! Tanesha
She was weak. Thats why she died. She died because she couldnt meet the challenge. The announcements continued. 18 dead in one day? What the
. That many were playing? Gods
so many dead. Danya praised her for killing Nich. So that was his name? The bastard deserved it.
Why would you play, whore?
Mariavel thought for a moment and looked to the stairway door. Just beyond, lied the corpse of Nich Finlayson. Mariavel wondered what his last thoughts were. Same thing with Jaime. And Tanesha. What would she thing before she died? She didnt really feel like finding out. When Danya said the Hotel was now a danger zone, Mari stood quickly. She tried to think of a way to get out, but still keep Bryan and Seth on their trail.
I have a plan. Ill need that rope though. She said, looking to Tori. We need to leave here before the boys do. Dont argue. We have limited choices. I dont want to leave them either. She took out the Tanto and sliced a piece of the rope off, handing the rest to Tori. Well leave them directions. She smiled. Ill use this rope and Nichs blood to write where were going. The schools not too far. With me?
The Dan: she won me over with card games, brownies, sex and handcuffs
