Something got her attention.
Jennifer snapped her head up as she saw someone else approach. It took a moment for her to process the information. Her brain was still sluggish from lack of caffeine and exhaustion. However, a moment was enough.
It looked like a girl covered in blood. Jennifers heart began to pound, this time not from exertion.
Everyone else confirmed who she was. Kimiko Kao. It wasnt like Jennifer didnt know who she was, though. Years of working on the school newspaper, of doing articles on the sports teams, meant that she was well acquainted with the fact that Kimiko was part of the basketball and gymnastics team. She was unable to speak, but was the gymnastics captain. And, most importantly
she was a killer. The names went by too fast, but she knew that Kimiko had come up. They even gave her a prize.
The blood was fresh.
Jennifers eyes snapped around her. Bart was terrified. Kiziah was nervous. Clarice just let out a flat curse and tried to hide Kiziah behind her. Could they hide behind the truck, the crates? Could they run for it? Run the other way Anything, everything, to hide, run, escape. Anything.
And thats when Jennifer saw it. Kiziahs gun.
Her heartrate got faster when she saw it just lying on the ground just at Barts feet. A weapon laying in plain sight, where someone, anyone could grab it. Kimiko couldve easily just picked it up and shot them, just like that, if Bart had moved. Even if she didnt attack them, she could still use it on other people.
Jennifers head flicked towards the rest of the group for a second. She had to think fast.
She stepped forward, her heart still pounding in her ears. Jennifer stopped just in front of the gun. She looked to see that Bart was still standing nearby, just in case. Her vision blurred, and it felt a bit like watching something in a movie. But she felt herself stand with legs apart, her posture slouched like a wild animal about to strike.
What do you want, Kimiko? she snapped.
A split second told her that wasnt the best idea. Kimiko couldnt respond, for starters. But, also
she had a sword. That meant any bad decisions she made here, could mean her death.
Another look at Bart. If he grabbed the gun and kept it out of her reach, that would make things better. If he couldnt, she could. No matter what, though, Kimiko could not have it. That was final.
Coming to a V7 near you.

For v6, I have come to a decision. To help lessen character pimping, I have vowed not to talk about my characters, any characters closely related to mine, or any threads I've been involved in, in any of the following places:
- General Discussion thread
- TV Tropes
- Random Thoughts
- Anything else I missed
I am not allowing myself to talk about anything relating to my characters or scenes I'm in unless they are brought up in conversation by another handler. I am not allowed to use my characters' names OOC or mention anything relating to that character until another handler mentions them. This is not currently in effect for pre-game; these self-imposed rules do not apply until v6 starts. However, they will be in effect the second v6 is announced. When one of my characters die, escape, or are otherwise removed from the game, these rules are lifted for that character, and I am free to talk about that character as much as I want. However, the others will have to wait until they too are out of the game.
This is a personal promise I'm keeping to myself for v6. If I break it, please feel free to bitch me out.
Addendum as of v6: I may ask for critiques while a character's arc is ongoing, as long as someone has offered to do so.
Let's show that private threads aren't necessary! I pledge not to start any private threads on island in V6. If I started a thread, you are welcome to join it.
