Maddie sat there, waiting as Joe tried and failed to kill himself.
He passed out, presumably from the blood loss. She didn't know quite what to do about it, she knew he was already done for.
She picked up the gun-knife from off Joe and considered helping him die just slightly faster, but she couldn't bring herself to do it.
Instead, she sat there next to Joe as he slowly died. Even if Joe didn't want her to waste her time, she couldn't bring herself to leave him alone. So, she stayed.
She stayed throughout the rest of the day, despite the dangers of being out in the open, eventually going to sleep nearby him after the sun set.
In the morning, the announcements came on. She didn't listen, they weren't important. Not now. Not this late into the game. All that mattered was that she was truly, utterly alone and it was really a kill or be killed situation.
Not long after, Joe stopped breathing. After he died, she stood up. Two corpses in the same area now. She walked over to what used to be Michael, his stomach blown open by a gunshot. She sat down, in between the two bodies. She didn't know what to do, or to think. She knew this would come. She didn't think it would come so quickly and so viciously. All she could do was apologize.
"I'm... I'm sorry guys. I'm really, really sorry."
With that, she stood up and began packing her things back up. Once they were fully packed, she gave one last look at the gruesome sight. She barely flinched from taking in the horrifying image all at once, she had seen too much already. All she felt was more sadness at the death of two people who didn't deserve to die, especially like this.
She began moving away from the scene, away from the violence. She needed to find a tranquil place to stay for a little while.
She needed it.
