Serving the important purpose of linking the islands that hold the staff accommodation and the hospital itself the connecting bridge is a large iron truss bridge that has walkways for pedestrians and a single lane for traffic; typically supply trucks ferrying items to and from the supply depot to the hospital. Due to its truss design there are large iron beams which make up the load bearing superstructure of the bridge itself. Additionally as a result of its iron composition the bridge is now extremely rusted and the lane has become fractured and filled with weeds over the course of time, adding a more natural look to a man-made structure.

On the one hand, Fiyori sounded like she was all there, mentally, and that was good. The girl wasn't exactly academic, but Georgia Lee knew she had a certain sharpness to her, and that would almost certainly prove useful. It certainly made for a better situation than her having to lead some halfwit around by the hand.

On the other hand, Fiyori sounded like she was all there, mentally, and that was dangerous. The girl was clearly suspicious, and this was probably the worst possible time for it. She didn't think Fiyori was likely to lose her temper, she was counting on her being smarter than that, but if she did...

No, she wouldn't. Wasn't going to happen. Georgia Lee wasn't going to waste time thinking about failure scenarios. She was just not going to fail. Planning for what to do if things went wrong was a waste of energy, and that energy could better be spent on making sure things didn't.

"Fiyori, look, I know we... we had our differences, but... I mean, I never wanted to kill you! I don't, still, I don't want to kill anyone! I mean, I went to school with these people, I care about them. I care about you, even! Maybe I don't exactly like you all of the time, but it's not like I want you to die."

She paused, and took a breath.

"I just want to find somewhere safe, somewhere where nobody will kill me, and... and figure out a way off of this island."

The other girl's face was a picture of skepticism, and it was clear to Georgia Lee that appeals to nonviolence and pacifism were not the way to go. Of course they weren't, it was ridiculous. Fiyori had probably never met someone she didn't want to kill, the idea of not being some sort of... homicidal lunatic was probably completely foreign to her. No, self interest was all that Fiyori would understand.

"Look I have worked too hard, for too long, for this to be..." she gestured out towards the island "...to be the end. I want to live, okay? I want to survive, and I want to have a life. I want to get into a good college, I want to get a scholarship, I want to go study there and graduate and get a good job and a husband and some kids and... this can't be a part of that. I had it planned, I had it all planned out, and it's not going to work if I spend the rest of my life with people looking at me like I'm a monster."

She couldn't tell if Fiyori believed her, or if she agreed with her, but Georgia Lee almost didn't care. There was a sense something like relief, as she got this out there. It felt good to speak her feelings aloud.

"I don't want to hurt anyone. I just want to stay alive. Listen, I know we don't get along, but it shouldn't matter. I don't think you're..." Georgia Lee almost said "a good person", but stopped herself. "...like me, but I think you're strong, and I think we can help each other."

She looked into Fiyori's strange, tiny, enigmatic eyes.

"Please. I don't want to die."

Her throat was coarse. Sand was hidden away in little spots all around her teeth and gum. And yet, she laughed. She had to. There she was, Georgia Lee Day - her person, the entire sum of everything she did, all her aspirations, all the hard work she put in, all the foul words she listened to and all the challenges she braved, all the bonds she made, all the memories she had, everything Georgia Lee Day was and ever hoped to be... all of it stood in front of her and was fated to die.

It was petty, Fiyori knew. Petty, cruel. And yet, Fiyori was right. She was right about everything. So she couldn't help it. She laughed, tears swelling up in her eyes and a stinging pain developing around her solar plexus.

But she snapped out of it, and in the fraction of a second, Fiyori stopped. She focused on GLD, tried to so at least. A grin still on her lips, she approached the other young woman slowly. Took just three steps forward.

"You know? I think you could actually do it. Not dying, you know?"

She was sincere. It would have been possible. There was that condition, the requirement was to kill at least one of your classmates, and GLD just had the chance to do so. Had she used that chance, and then hid until the very end - then yes, Fiyori was sure of it. Georgia Lee Day could have done it.

"But if you're not even willing to kill me, well... then there's nothing left to do for us but run around this place aimlessly unless we run into someone like, dunno, Ty."

She stopped smiling. She stopped breathing for a moment, too. Of course, how could she be so ignorant. He was with her on the trip. Not only him, but also so many others. If it were only Georgia Lee Day and Fiyori Senay, she would have felt utter bliss, but knowing that so many of her friends are about to die. No, she couldn't think about it. She couldn't. She mustn't.

The smile didn't return.

"He'll give me a hug. And then he'll crush your skull."

Fiyori gave her a shrug, and raised an eyebrow.

"And I see no reason why I'd bother to stop him."

How dare she? How dare she? Fiyori was right, Georgia Lee could have killed her. The girl was basically weightless; Georgia Lee could probably have lifted her one-handed. She'd let her live, and she'd stayed and helped her, and now Fiyori had the actual temerity to make threats?

The carrot, clearly, had been ineffective. It was time for the stick.

"How's this for a reason, Fiyori? How about I don't leave you here, on a bridge, completely exposed? How about I don't take all your stuff with me when I go? How about I don't leave you blind, alone and helpless, waiting for someone else who you've made life hell for, who maybe isn't as nice as me to come along?"

Georgia Lee gave her a hard, hollow smile.

"How about I don't do all that, and then when we meet your big, scary friends, you tell them to be nice to me out of a little something called gratitude?"

Gratitude? Was she supposed to thank her for not killing Fiyori? Was she even aware of what it made her sound like?

Fiyori gazed back at GLD, but then she averted her eyes and just shook her head. The wind blew, and some strands of hair flew into her face. She turned to face the railing, and the sea beyond.

She stepped towards it, heard her feet stepping on concrete and heard her feet stepping on grass. The railing was old. It was rusty, but it seemed stable. She put a hand on it. Leaned against it, and just watched out from the bridge into a gray and blurry sludge of sky and sea that stretched out before her.

The truth was, and it was an uncomfortable truth to accompany all the other ones, that her glasses were gone. Neither of the two bags contained them, and they weren't on the ground either. They were gone. That was it, and Fiyori felt as if she could just vomit. A strange reaction, perhaps some sort of mourning. Either way, in that moment more than ever she knew that she had two choices.

Take the step onto the railing. Lean forward and fall to death. Or ultimately accept Georgia Lee's offer of company. Use her as a pair of functioning eyes. It was so absurd, but it was a choice.

She wanted to say something. To Georgia Lee. Tell her about how much of a service she would have done to Fiyori if only she had killed the girl before she awoke. How much she would have loved to just die.

But now she had a choice. A choice she had to made then and in that moment.

She wanted it, didn't she? Die. Fling herself off into the water. If not from the Hudson Dam, then from that bridge. But no, she chose differently. She didn't know why. No, she did. But she didn't want to acknowledge the reason.

"Fine. You'll help me see shit. I'll help you survive."

Fiyori turned around to her again.

"Just try to be more pleasant company for once."

For a minute there, she’d thought Fiyori was going to jump.

The girl’d been poised, right at the edge of the bridge, and visions of her hurling herself of, of her spindly insect frame spinning over and over on the way down, had filled Georgia Lee’s head. There was no way you’d survive that, surely; not from this height. It would have been in suicide.

And, in another sense, it would have been murder. There had been a dreadful, fleeting moment of surety where Georgia Lee had known, had known with an absolute and lethal certainty that Fiyori would leap, she would die, and Georgia Lee would be utterly at fault.

The guilt of that realization was like a lead weight in her stomach. Georgia Lee took a step towards Fiyori, tenser than she had ever been, ready at any moment to reach out and grab the girl before she plummeted. When Fiyori hadn’t jumped, when she’d accepted Georgia Lee’s offer instead, the sense of relief was so overwhelming she didn’t know whether she would laugh or cry.

The weight lifted from her, and Georgia Lee relaxed, grateful that the other girl could not make her face out. In truth, Georgia Lee didn’t know what feelings would be showing on it, or even what feelings she had. In some ways it felt like she was feeling everything; joy and misery and rage and confusion and fear and hope, all streaming over her, all at once, and if she stopped for a moment to acknowledge or assess any one of them, she sensed she’d be swept along in a tide of emotion and reduced to a wreck.

Georgia Lee balled her hands into fists to keep them from shaking, kept her lips tight to keep from screaming.

Fiyori wasn’t going to jump. Fiyori was going to help her. They’d get off of this bridge, they’d get help, and somehow they’d get out of here. They’d survive.

Nothing needed be said, Georgia Lee decided, and she didn’t trust her voice to say it anyhow. She hiked one of the bags onto her shoulder, gave Fiyori a nod, and lead the way off of the crumbling bridge.

There was something going on about in Georgia Lee's face, but Fiyori wasn't sure what exactly. She hated that. If only she had her glasses, her visual abilities would've been good enough to even discern the smallest detail on Georgia Lee Day's face as long as she was looking for them. But without her glasses, there was nothing clear to see. Not at the distance between them. Fiyori sighed. She did not bother to hide it.

Georgia Lee Day decided to head off the bridge, and Fiyori Senay decided to follow her. Her ill-found companion took a bag, and Fiyori reached for the other one. She wasn't sure about it. About what to do. What it meant to survive. Oh, sure, Georgia Lee had a plan in mind. And if she had not, she would be formulating one in her head at that very moment. She was the kind of person to do that. Routine. Methods. Strategy. She would devise her brilliant and genius strategy to get off this island without a hitch and it would all crumble the same before the hurdles that would be their classmates.

Georgia Lee thought she and Fiyori could survive. She would not. And she would not.
