He was asking for answers. He was getting angry, but he was asking for answers and Coleen didn't have to worry about angry. She had a gun. She felt for Tyler, though... truly, she did. Everybody had their own way of expressing their grief and though Ty's was different from how she did it, it made it no less valid. She understood that and, as long as he kept his hands off of her, she would keep understanding that.

She supposed there was no point in holding back anymore, not if he asked for the details exactly as they went down with that much conviction.

"Alright," Coleen started. "I found her on the beach not too long ago. Two girls standing over her. She said... Isabel and Lily, but I don't know if she meant Lili W. or Lily C." Coleen gave the statement a moment to breath, trying to get a read on Ty's face before continuing. With Keith... that wasn't as hard. Keith was handling this in a way closer to how she would have, and probably would have done the same exact thing as her if he was there for a first-hand taste. "I started running towards them and the girls left. Probably because... well, this." She gripped the AK a little tighter and held it up an inch before relaxing her arms.

"She told me to tell you to watch out for the two of them. For whatever reason they did it, she was... hurt pretty bad. There wasn't anything I could do for her." Coleen gently chewed the inside of her cheek, piecing together the end of her story. "She wanted me to help her to her feet and then... she walked into the ocean."

That was all she could say. The announcements would confirm her story, so it didn't matter if Ty believed her or not. If he decided he was going to turn onto the two girls who killed Lizzie... it pained Coleen to think it, but that wasn't really her problem either. Since the killer would be identified come the next morning, all this information did was offer Ty a head start and hopefully give him some closure to the situation. Lizzie was dead... that was it.

"Sorry you had to find out like this."

Keith's finger came away wet. He was crying and he hated that. He turned away slightly so the two of them couldn't see his face. He could feel his face getting hot and red. He wasn't supposed to cry. His brother and dad had told him that. That real men didn't cry and now he had cried when Jasmine threatened him, and he was crying now and he felt like a huge fuckup.

It was just so hard to accept that Lizzie was dead. She wasn't someone he really knew, but shit, they'd spent a few days together. She'd given him weed. She hadn't had to do that. She could have just left him on his own after Alice and Sandra had taken off.

He didn't know what to say about the who's and how's. It didn't really matter. Lizzie was gone, and knowing that Isabel and Lily had done it meant nothing.

He exhaled quickly, then inhaled again, and then exhaled. He could feel his hands shaking.

But he didn't know what to say.

The impulse was there. It wasn't even her fucking fault, but it was still there. His anger just wanted to go somewhere, to actually accomplish something for once in this hell hole. He almost took a swing at her right there. There was that same familiar tension right before he made one more shitty decision, but there was a weight on his shoulder. The same one that had been there every time he'd tried to do something stupid these last few months. Even when she wasn't around he could feel Bee's hand on him reminding him that he had a choice. Demanding that he be a better man. He could almost see her when he glanced over his shoulder, those concerned eyes that both told him he was making a mistake and assured him that everything was gonna be okay all at the same time. It was comforting. It was also heartbreaking. As crazy as it was he couldn't help but feel like if Bee was here, this whole damn thing would make a lot more sense.

But she was really gone. He'd never even gotten to see her after they woke up here. All he had was the memory of her and that little blue ring on a chain around his neck. Having that boil up on him now seemed almost felt like having his failures thrown right in his face.

It wasn't fair. It wasn't goddamn fair that good people kept dying while all the fucking monsters like Isabel and Brendan and whoever the fuck else just kept killing. He could feel that weight on him again as his anger hooked into that line of reasoning, but for the first time he resisted it. It was too important to hate them. His eyes locked in on the girl's once he'd gathered himself. "I'm guessin' you don't really use that thing." Ty tried to speak nice and slow to keep himself calm. "So I'm just gonna ask you which way they went."

Keith was in a bad way. Sounded like he was near hyperventilating. Maybe it was the first time he'd really lost someone here. Right now, Ty was having a hard time finding any sympathy for him. There wasn't any time to slow down and coddle the coward. Isabel and Lily probably already had a hell of a lead on him.

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.

Coleen steeled her spine for the potential explosion that threatened to erupt from a ticking time bomb like Tyler. All of his body had tensed up like a coil. She'd seen it all before - he looked like somebody swallowing their stage fright, preparing for a more action-oriented role or one in which they'd have to do a lot of high-energy speech. She recalled some girl who did a one-act that she sadly couldn't remember the name of. In it, the girl portrayed a woman who had just been raped before her husband and was now trying to talk herself through to recovery. That is, of course, until she notices her husband glaring at her, with a slew of implications therein. Coleen didn't remember much more than that, only that it had made her sob once the girl had finished.

Yeah, that was Tyler right now, looking like he was going to scream until he was red in the face and strike whatever was near. She decided, then, she'd not waste too much of his time.

"They ran up that way the moment they saw me coming," Coleen pointed. "Because the bridge is still out, I think, at least that blocks off a lot of the island." She had said too much, not that she had made some fatal mistake that would send Tyler immediate over the edge, but she added more to her statement than he had wanted to know. She didn't want to waste any more of his time. She wanted him to accept what was said and go his separate way, taking Keith with him, so nobody else had to get hurt. Arthur not being over her shoulder only helped to strengthen that feeling of loneliness and nakedness she now faced in every social interaction, where one could never tell if their partner of conversation was planning on drawing a blade or pulling a trigger.

At least, Coleen was happy to let it lay there, until she noticed something: a small blue ring, hanging on a chain around Ty's neck. She'd seen one like it before.

"Hey..." Coleen asked, quietly. "That ring... is it Bern's?"

Keith froze up when he heard Ty's question. They were going after them. That was four people that were in the running for them to attempt to kill now. Keith couldn't kill that many people, but, could he tell Ty that?

He turned back towards the two others. The talk sounded important, but not like his business. He stayed silent.

Shit, how were they supposed to to kill the others with no weapons? His eyes locked onto the girl's AK.

He shook his head slightly. It'd be wrong, and he hadn't wanted to try and kill people anyway.

Ty was ready to walk, whether anyone was coming with him or not. Just as he was about to march off, though, she got his attention again. His hand went up to clasp his lantern ring as he turned around with a curious look on her face. Why was she asking about that? Did she know Bee? "Nah," he started slowly, "Hers is...I got her that violet one, that was her favorite..." He choked up a little as he spoke. Was. Not is. Not anymore. His hand drifted from the ring to the his left breast, resting over their tattoo under his shirt. The goofy part of him always had this idea that when he proposed to her, he'd sneak her ring off for a day or so before and do it with that. Of course he'd save up and get her a real ring, he wasn't that stupid, but something about surprising her with it again...it just felt right.

"You know her?" It was getting harder to talk now. He could remember it all so vividly. The way she'd scooted up against him, that shy sweetness as she explained what'd he'd done for her, a few soft words. Guess the emotion time. Their first kiss. The first time she'd told him she loved him. All wrapped up in that little plastic ring that he could only imagine was with her somewhere. She'd given it all back to him when she surprised him with the one around his neck too. It wasn't just that she loved him. She believed in him, even when she had to talk him down. She'd made him believe too, filled him up with this hope that he could be a better man and they might actually pull off something great together.

Love and hope. That's what they'd always meant for each other.

He wasn't even gonna be able to see her body, was he?

That was it. That was his breaking point. For the first time since he'd woken up in this goddamn nightmare, Ty started to cry.

'Yeah, I knew her,' Coleen wanted to reply straight away. She wanted to say it straight out, at least. It was on the edge of her rolled tongue when Ty's inflection soaked through and she read the conversation for what it was. The thick tension and aggression hanging in the air over their heads had not boiled and burned her; instead, it had condensed into a cloud. Now? Now it was beginning to rain.

To see somebody like Ty weep, Coleen thought, did wonders to show the game they supposedly played for what it really was: a terrible, maniacal thing that could break and warp the most steeled of souls. The kicker, of course, was that nobody here should have been a hardened badass. She, Tyler, Keith and everybody else here was just a kid who should be worrying about what they're going to be doing for graduation. Or at least in the case of the juniors, what classes they're going to take, who's going to be cool. Stupid stuff. Now, the strong wept, the kindhearted and gentle were killing their friends, and all these kids so full of life and vigor were either half-dying or fully dead.

Once again, Coleen held it in just as she had done for Eliza's sake. It would do no favors to Ty if she crumbled as well.

"Yeah. We spent some time together," she finally managed to say after giving him a healthy amount of time to vent the first flow of emotion. "She was still the same person she always was, even here. When I was having a really hard time, she helped keep me on my feet." The words were paced and deliberate, as if she practiced them. In remembering what little closure finding a lost loved one had offered, she continued on.

"If you go up to the cliffs on the northwest point of the island, you'll find her. If you want to go see her." She shouldn't have been moved, she was sure. Ty seemed set on doing his own thing before and if he wanted revenge that badly, she wouldn't stop her. If he wanted to do this instead... it only seemed like the right thing to do to give him that option.

She didn't bother telling him that the AK used to belong to Bernadette. That was really besides the point and didn't help matters any.

"I should go now," Coleen uttered. "See you later?" Stupid, but there was no better way to end the conversation. Did they really want to see each other when it meant they might have to kill each other? Did they want to hear each other's names on the announcements? How futile would it have been to say something like 'stay safe', knowing it was an impossibility? Coleen chewed on the inside of her cheek, frustrated that there was no good way to break it off. All she could do now was wait for Ty.

((Skipping to leave thread with permission))

Ty didn't have any reason to think she was fooling him. It all sounded so much like Bee. Always looking out for everybody else no matter what she was dealing with, even here. He'd have given anything to be by her side for these last few days. Instead he was off feeling like shit and chasing his demons. It wasn't the first time he'd thought about it, but it was the first time he had an out other than letting the rage push him on or letting the sadness swallow him up. She'd give him a location.

She'd given him hope.

The tears kept coming as he tried to swallow the lump in his throat. They were bittersweet now though. Just a minute ago he was fit to collapse again, but he'd caught on to forward momentum for something other than blind hate. He had no clue what he was gonna do when he found her, but...he was gonna do something. Even if it was just talk to her for a little bit. God did he need that.

After what she'd just given him, it didn't seem like there was an easy way to tell her he didn't even know her name. He wanted to thank her somehow, or that he'd never thought he'd see her again. Ty was never good at that sorta thing. Instead he gave her a nod. Smiled just a little bit before he swallowed again. "Thank you," he said quietly. "I mean that. Here's hopin' to see you around." With that, he started to walk away. His gaze drifted backward to Keith. "I know where I'm headed. You can come along if you want."

They were on the move again. Only for the first time since he'd woke up, he had a clear purpose and destination. His eyes weren't half-shut with fatigue or darting around to jump at every shadow. It didn't feel like his body was about to fall apart either from the ache or from the anger or both. He walked with the confidence that he was going to do one goddamn thing right in this place before his ticket got punched. Even if it killed him.

Keith just kept back from the conversation. There wasn't anything he could add to it. He hadn't known Ty's girlfriend really, or had seen her on the island.

But it turned out they were going to be on the move again.

"Alright," he told Ty.

He realized he hadn't really said anything to the girl.

"Uh, good luck," he told her before following after Ty.

"Alright..."

Coleen waited for Ty to finish walking away and for Keith to follow. Only then did she let her arms finally relax. Her right hand loosely held the AK-47 with such little care that the barrel scraped up against the sand slightly; her left hand had let it go entirely. Being alone again was as much of a relief as it was a hollow pain leaving her with nothing. But she had nothing left a long time ago.

No. She supposed that wasn't true.

But before she thought any more about it, Coleen stopped herself. She didn't want the next morning's sun and the accompanying announcements to take that away from her as it had taken everything else. As it would continue to take. And, while she didn't allow herself to make any noise, tears rolled down each cheek, finally having been set free now that nobody was there to see them.

Finally.
