The girl was gone. Except she wasn't. He could hear her talking faintly with someone across the way with the bridge.

A low growl rumbled up out of his throat. "Too many fucking people."

He began to rise, eyes flitting in their direction.

It was difficult to nail down exactly when the anger started. Remembering a time when it wasn't there, coiled up and waiting to strike or alive and thrashing, was growing more and more challenging. It'd been with her for so long that it no longer felt like an intruder in her mind. It felt like a part of her.

“It’s fine. Just… you know, we’re just...” Clarice trailed off and shrugged, before wincing and remembering, oh yeah, the shoulder. Natalie backed off, and then immediately someone else turned up.

Clarice wrinkled her nose at Ty’s comment and turned towards him.

“What’s the alternative? Corpses?” Her tone was harsh.

She then turned away to look at the newcomer. She primarily knew Wayne by sight. Knew he was a basketballer. Knew he wasn’t a huge asshole. She thought, at first glance, that he looked weirdly bulky or weighed down or—

It clicked. He was carrying two bags.

That could mean a lot of things. He could have found them. Scavenged them. Stolen them. Murdered someone for them. He didn’t look like he was running at them with a gun or anything. But Natalie was already approaching him, and it sounded a little like she was about to go into the same offer she’d just shared with Clarice.

...Girl could not pick her targets. Clarice could just let it happen, but… well, her conscience would be rattling at her after. She didn’t want Natalie to learn a lesson about being careful the same way Clarice had.

So Clarice backed away from the edge of the bridge, and put herself between Natalie and Wayne, her good arm stretched out towards Natalie to stop her from moving past.

“Hold on.”

She shifted, trying to stare Wayne down. Hard when he was looking down like that. The sort of body language that, were Clarice watching this as a film, she’d go ‘that guy’s being shifty, he’s probably important. A minor villain or at least a red herring.’

“Hey. Hey, Wayne. Eyes up here, I’m talking to you.” Clarice snapped her fingers and then gestured at her eyes. “Where’d you get the second bag?”

Risky, to confront someone like this, but what could she really lose that the island wasn’t already set on taking away?

No more pretending.

A girl was there in front of him, with curly red hair and a question in her eyes. The question she actually asked was dumb, he thought, but there was something else behind it. Something she wanted from him.

Like Clarice, who accosted him, wanting something from him, too. Wayne had looked down, yes, but he had mostly looked past her. At where he wanted to go. At where he wanted to escape. But there was no escape yet from this situation, and that was how he had intended it, because he had not hidden the extra bag, had not hidden his guilt. It wasn't fair that his guilt wasn't obvious unless he made it obvious. Unless he let his actions or words or face betray him.

So easy now, to tell the truth. He was caught out on one thing. Why not everything?

No more pretending.

He met Clarice's eyes.

"I found it," he said, and hated himself more. "Someone was dead, and..." He paused, filled with disgust - at himself, at the truth behind what really had happened, at the falsehood, at the thought of looting a corpse. "I took it. I guess they don't... I don't know who it was. Didn't want to know."

"And yeah," Wayne said, breaking eye contact to look at the other girl. He was tired of fighting himself. "I guess. I'm not here for the scenery."

Natalie didn't even have to think. She immediately understood the situation that was happening.

At first she didn't consider it. How can anyone kill someone. Especially anyone from her school. That's why she'd ignored the fact that the boy had two bags, or the knife.

She wanted to believe that there was some kind of hope that people weren't insane.

Kill.

That word lingered in her mind.

The boy, Wayne, said that he found it, but the girl, Clarice, seemed to have thought differently. Natalie seems keen to believe that the boy just found it. If a student really did die, maybe it wasn't this boy that killed them.

"Wait a minute, we're not gonna do anything stupid, are we?" asked Natalie, looking at both Clarice and Wayne.

Truth be told, despite being okay with going on her own, she'd like a partner. But a partner who's a murderer? Not possible. She wanted so badly to believe in the more peaceful explanation.

"Thank you, Ty."

"I'm here for you, Ty."

"I appreciate you saving my fucking life, Ty."


Clarice hadn't said any of this shit to him, or anything like it. It was all tense little nods and barely hidden contempt and nothing that did anything but piss him off more.

Fuck it. She didn't want him around. And he lived by a very simple rule to help him get by when he started getting too hot to control himself.

Walk away.

Wayne said he found it. Maybe he did. Clarice couldn’t see a murderer leaving the bag behind, not when they had such few supplies to begin with. But maybe. Maybe it belonged to Abby, since… god. God, this was all so…

Clarice looked down. She heard Natalie talk. She hesitated for a moment before looking up again.

“I’m not doing anything stupid. Even if… even if he was a killer, I…” She trailed off.

If Wayne was a murderer, there was nothing she could do. What were the options on this island? She could kill him—or try, at least—but she wasn’t going to play this game. Even if Wayne had killed, he didn’t deserve it. And even if he did, Wayne probably had friends. Family.

Clarice couldn’t be the one to make anyone else feel like she was feeling right now. She wasn’t a fucking asshole.

She looked Wayne in the face, before straightening up some. “Fine. But if I find out you were lying...” She paused for a moment longer, then said, “I’m going to be real fucking upset with you.”

She turned to where Ty had been. He wasn’t there anymore.

“...Wait. Ty? Where’d—“ Her gaze moved a little further. She could see Ty’s retreating figure in the distance. “Hey! Ty! Come back here!”

He didn’t turn back.

“...Fine. Fine! Be that way, you fucking murderer!” Clarice yelled after him. “Be that way!”

She regretted the words the moment she’d yelled them. She couldn’t… she shouldn’t blame Ty. It was Isabel who’d done it. But… fuck. She just wanted to hate him so much.

“Shit,” she muttered under her breath.

With that, she turned back to Wayne and Natalie. She looked at Wayne for a moment, then turned her attention on Natalie.

“If you follow him… be careful,” she muttered.

She left, going the opposite way of Ty. She could have caught up, perhaps, if she ran. But… but she wasn’t sure if she wanted to.

((Clarice Halwood continued elsewhere.))

Wayne replayed Clarice's words in his head even as she left. If she found out he was lying, she'd be upset.

Yeah. He was upset with himself, too. Join the club.

Not upset enough, apparently, even after all that he told himself. Not enough to tell the truth. Probably not even enough to change his ways. He was a liar, a thief. A regular piece of shit. Perhaps he was tempted to use that as some sort of excuse, too - he couldn't tell the truth or do selfless, noble things because he was a bad person, because that was just who he was - but that was a lie, too. There might very well be a natural instinct involved, an impulse to screw other people over just so he wouldn't die, but in the end he had made his own choices. He was responsible for everything that he'd done.

He watched Ty and Clarice go their separate ways, then spared a glance for the girl whose name he still didn't know.

"I don't know why you'd want to follow someone who loots the dead."

There was a moment's pause where he considered saying something more, but then he simply began walking again. He had a long walk ahead, and too many things he couldn't outrun.

((Wayne Cox continued in A Chef's Nightmare))

And there it is again. Alone once more.

Natalie took a deep sigh.

It's only been a while in this island and people are already acting like everything's lost. Why can't they just get their heads together.

Natalie had a mix of emotions as she rested against the railing.

People were dying, based on what that boy had said. That thought alone scared her. The announcements also confirmed that so many had died. Yet, she still didn't want to believe the fact that her classmates, her schoolmates, would be the ones killing them.

She won't believe it unless she sees it with her own eyes.

And if she did... well...

She didn't know what to do.

Her stomach was growling. There were rations in the bag. Maybe it's time to just take a small break and a snack.

((Natalie Winters continued elsewhere))
