May The Odds Not Fuck You In The Butt

Going as far as the eye can see, the wheat fields can seem somewhat intimidating. With the wheat growing wild now, the fields reach the average person’s shoulders, and since they lack any distinguishing landmarks aside from rusted farm equipment haphazardly left around, it can be very easy for one to lose their way.

((Mallory McCormick continued from Disneyland with the Death Penalty))

Mallory wanted to get as far away from the gunshots as possible, so she ran once again in a zig-zaggy pattern, changing her mind about which way to go, and dragging Stephanie along behind her. She probably didn't need to drag the other girl, but getting separated wouldn't be good, especially while running from a crazy cowboy (maybe) with a giant-ass fucking gun.

Eventually, she had to stop. Because she'd spent most of the last hour running and combined with the bag and the after effects of the sleeping gas that would tire out anyone, even someone as fit as her. When Mallory came to a stop, they'd just emerged from the woodlands Mallory had dragged them into, out into a wheat field. Mallory let go of Stephanie and immediately flopped into the wheat, rolling onto her back.

"That was balls," she mumbled. "Damn guns are everywhere."

She looked at Stephanie.

"My bad, this was probably the opposite direction we should have gone. But, well... fucking bullets and all."

(Stephanie Wright continued from Disneyland with the Death Penalty)

Being dragged for the entire distance was no fun, but Stephanie was happy to be away from the gun. Whoever that had been, he didn't seem in anyway hesitant to fire.

When they had finnaly come to a stop, Stephanie followed Mallory in collapsing to the ground.

"T-that was no fun at all." Stephanie turned to Mallory, the image somewhat more blurry than usual. Stephanie wiped the sweat out of her eyes.

"So this cowboy you keep talking about, he went psycho with a gun?" Stephanie picked up her own bag and began fishing for her specs. Seeing well would be good about now.

"I think so. I woke up, and I was like 'whoa, this is shit' so I thought I'd run around a bit, and then I saw Alba, and thought he was gonna be a jackass because he's normally a jackass, but then the cowboy showed up with this big-ass fucking gun, and he was the real jackass, and he was all 'stick 'em up and gimme things' and I was all 'dude, not cool' and Alba was like 'dude, not cool' and then I threw a bottle of water at him and I think it hit his bad shoulder, because someone else shot at him or something, and then I ran away and Alba and the cowboy did... something. And then I got to the rollercoaster and then I--we--heard the gun and it sounded like the same gun so yeah."

Having eloquently described to Stephanie the emotional turmoil she'd been through until that point, Mallory frowned at the sky for a few moments. She had stopped for a rest, which meant she actually had to think about what was happening, and this time she had no rollercoaster to focus on.

"This is all balls. Balls, balls, balls, balls, BALLS!" Mallory yelled abruptly. She then rolled over onto her front, resting her face on her forearms.

"...I wanna go home," she mumbled.

Stephanie pulled her glasses on, letting them settle there for a few seconds before adjusting them again. There was a reason why she didn't wear glasses often. Nonetheless, she was rather pleased with the result. The fields were a brilliant gold, stretching as far as the eye could see. Stephanie fancied for a second that she could still see the amusement park far in the distance.

Mallory's sudden yell took Stephanie by surprise, coming at the end of a tale Stephanie could barely make heads or tails of. She sat there for a second, waiting for Mallory to continue, but she simply stopped with a resigned statement.

Stephanie looked down, wondering how best to help her new friend. Instead, she simply lasped into awkward silence, staring into the field as if it could give an answer.

It didn't.

For the first time in her life, Mallory didn't want to move. She just wanted to lie face first in this wheat patch forever and let this stupid, stupid terrorist act just pass by. It wasn't gonna pass by, but it wasn't like there was anything she could do about it. And as much as she wanted to live, killing was stupid. It was for dumb, violent idiots, like punching people without asking first. So fuck that. She was just gonna lie here forever.

But that was no way to spend her last days.

She was going to die. And this was pretty much the most miserable way to go out ever. But she could make it... less miserable. She'd felt good when she saw the rollercoaster and realised she could clamber all over it and no-one would be able to stop her, unlike a real amusement park. She just had to go with that. All she had to do was focus on good, fun things she could do.

Wouldn't help her survive. But goddammit, there was never gonna be another chance to live, and what was the point in dragging out survival if she didn't do anything fun? She'd rather die sitting in a rollercoaster, making stupid, childish but inexplicably fun 'vroom' noises, than curled up in the corner sobbing her eyes out and just waiting for death.

She rolled onto her back again before sitting up and feeling around for the zipper on her bag. "There anything you need to do, Stephanie?"

She removed the map from her bag once more. This time, she started scouring it for locations that looked interesting. She made a mental note of the beach and the series of buildings back in the direction of the golf course. As well as maybe exploring the amusement park more throughly if they... if they lasted long enough.

Mallory had taken it upon herself to break the silence, a fact that Stephanie would remain silentlly grateful for. Home seemed liked such a faraway dream and Stephanie would probably have let the silence drag on forever.

"Things I want to do, huh?" There were a million things that she wanted. She wanted to go to college, get a nice job, find a nice boyfriend. But if she wanted one thing most? What would it have to be?

"I want to play tennis. One last time." Stephanie looked up at Mallory. "Sort of like an apolgy to the game I turned my back to. How about you?"

"Tennis! Right on, that sounds pretty good. Was more of a football person myself, but hey, what better time to pick up tennis." Mallory squinted at the map before pointing at the golf course. "Golf courses sometimes have those fancy clubs with tennis things, right? I definitely saw a building in the distance while I was running away from stuff. We should check there. But we'll have to go the long way around to avoid the cowboy guy."

Wanting to play sports was a pretty good goal. And it was closest, as well, so Mallory was fine with putting it first. She still wasn't sure where she wanted to go. Not until she looked at the shopping center on the map. Would they have... blankets? Blankets and pillows? She used to make forts with her little sisters when it was her turn to watch them. They never made big ones because the house didn't have enough blankets, but a giant blanket fort...

Mallory wondered if she could ask whoever was watching to get a screenshot of her making a giant blanket fort, and then to send it to her family so they could give it to her sisters. After all, wasn't that the best way to be remembered ever? Big Sister Mallory. Queen of the best blanket fort on an island of death ever. It was much happier than their last image of her being something bloody.

"I want to go to the shopping centre and make a blanket fort afterwards," Mallory said. "But that's further away. So we can do your tennis thing first."

"A blanket fort, huh? Sounds like fun." Stephanie smiled. Mallory really had a knack for coming up with the most inane things. In a good way of courae. Stephanie sometimes wished that she could be so open. It felt weird, awkward to have her help her do something personal.

"I don't mind it either way. It would spruce up this death trap of an island. But for now, I sorta wanna just lie here and catch my breath. " At that, she slumped backwards, lying against the soft vegetation.

"Yeah, that's fine. Long run and stuff."

Mallory got to her feet after a couple of moments of rest. She didn't need too much time to recuperate, and she was already getting restless again, now that there was a purpose set in her mind. No matter how ultimately meaningless that purpose was. Mallory shifted on the spot for a few moments, her eyes set on the farmhouse and other little buildings on the edge of the wheatfield.

Maybe someone was in one of those buildings?

With little consideration for the danger involved, she cupped her hands around her mouth and bellowed, "HELLO? ANYONE THERE?"

Once again, it was Mallory that got up first. Where on earth did this girl get all her energy from? Keeping up with her was going to be tough. She rubbed her arm, partially out of habit but also because of the strain of being dragged such a distance.

With no warning whatsoever, Mallory began shouting at the farnhouse not too far away.

"I don't think that's such a-" Stephanie began to protest but decided against it. If there was anyone there they'd already know they were here. Might as well make sure they were friendly.

"Fuck this, " she sighed, before joining Mallory in shouting. "Is there someone out there?"
