Naturally, this is cured by Umi delivering a sharp slap to the face, but the jig is up. As they flee the scene, Hawley fires a few rounds in their general direction, and Aiden is clipped.wrote:A maniac grin lit up Daisuke's face, the adrenaline of the game had awoken his sadistic tendancies, he wanted blood and he wanted it now...
Aiden passes out at this point so Daisuke can explain what it was that happened back there. He's hesitant, of course, out of embarrassment and perhaps a bit of shame, but eventually he opens up about it, and this is a fascinating bit of character development, which must regrettably be interrupted by Gabrielle Minase, who threatens everyone, gets surrounded by people wielding guns, and dies of AIDS. Of course, that's not what happens, since instead the stress causes Daisuke to go sadistic again and he shoots Minase dead. It's a hasty band-aid applied over a bizarre death quote, but at least it helps Daisuke's character a little. This time, a slap doesn't do it, so Umi has to smack him in the back of the head with her gun, and the group has to flee before people get attracted to Daisuke's gunshot.wrote:"How do you know so much about survival," Aiden gasped. Dai's hand was squeezing back.
Will they ever confess their feelings for one another? Well, not in this thread, since Daisuke "spaces out" right before Andrew has his big death scene, only to rejoin the group next thread, when he has to explain to everyone else that Kiyoko took Aiden's weapon because she's scared and doesn't trust them. In particular, the group has attracted the attention of Peri Barclay, so her suspicions are right on the money. Still, Daisuke trusts him enough to be discussing escape attempts, or at least the possibility of one. Nothing particularly concrete and it's obvious they're just making stuff up as they go along. Much like most V1 escape attempts, there's just not enough info to go on yet to formulate a proper plan of attack.wrote:"I promise you Aiden, we'll leave together, i'll look out for you" Daisuke smiled at the shorter boy
Aaaaaaaand there we go. Fortunately, Peri decides to give the two of them a pass, so they're able to go on their way just in time to see Sarge get BUSHMURDERED! It always comes back to Daphne somehow. Watching mostly silently as the group deliberates on what to do with Daphne, he's forced to take cover with Aiden when a Slayer murderbot arrives on the scene. Engaging in a brief firefight, the group has to disperse because the place has become a danger zone. The group has a brief breather in the woods during which nothing particularly of note happens with Daisuke, since he just phases out of the scene for what has to be the third time.wrote:Aiden glared at Peri, almost to weak for words.
"He loves me..."
Could be worse, I suppose, but if I were in their position, having just been shouted out of a thread, I'd consider that to be not very funny at all. Regardless, noticing that Drew got a gun while all he got was a crowbar, Arsenio suspects that he might not make it to the end of the game. That's rather prescient, because no sooner does a new pair arrive than so does Cody Jenson, dragging along Lyndi. Opening fire on the group because he's Cody Jenson, he lands three good shots on Arsenio, but the big man doesn't quite die yet, since he tries desperately to get a good hit on Cody so the group can make it out. To his credit, he ends up providing the distraction necessary for Lyndi to escape, and the rest of the group follows suit soon after. So while he dies without doing anything to Cody, the fact that he was willing to keep fighting through his wounds for just a little longer was what made the difference in that confrontation.wrote:((Bearing in mind about 7 people have arrived in the woods since this post died, I'd re-direct this post to that thread if I were you... unless we're just assuming they're in different parts of the woods? Could happen, I guess... OK, ignore me XDD))
