Kaya was right, there wasn’t much here to secure anyone with. Watching Rocco going up the stairs alone was a surprise. He was usually the one to ask for help with everything that involved having the possibility to get hurt or killed or he would sit out entirely. He was a quiet one. Turning my head back towards Kaya I realized I made a very big mistake.
I loosened my grip on the girl just slightly. STUPID I scream at myself in my head. Was so distracted by everything I didnt even notice what had happened until I felt something sharp on my neck.
As I am trying to keep my expression as neutral as I can under the current turn of events, my life was in danger here all I can think about is my sisters, my family, and oddly enough Kaya.
No, NO, NO, get your head together Bells. You are seriously not in a good position to be thinking about anything but getting out of this alive.
Deep breaths. Neutral face. More deep breaths, Then I hear Kaya whisper to Jace and my thoughts go right back to her. What the hell is going on. Why do I keep asking that when I know.
Deep breaths, do not let her see you internally panicking.
I hear Jace say something about the guy Kaya knocked out. Sounds like he has this in an even worse position by what this crazy chick is chanting. All of a sudden I feel a sharp pain coming from my neck. Clinching my teeth, I will not show pain.
I then hear Rocco coming back down the stairs and saying something to the chick who just hurt me.
Suddenly remembering I hid a knife up my sleeve, I try to move my arm around slightly to see if I can get an angle on her. Managing to get the knife pointed against her side
"Come one sweetheart, think about this." I say to her and I poke the knife in further. It wont kill her, Maybe not even harm her much but I refuse to die. Not like this. “Just let me go, without harm and Ill think about letting you live”.
New chosen character, Daze. He is a lunatic. Loves to “hunt” and is not friendly at all. Is a guard for the rest of the chosen that live in the mall. 6’5 and all muscle. He has no sense of what is right and wrong. Doesnt make much sense.
Walking silently through the mall in the shadows I hear all the commotion.
Among the commotion it is brought to my attention that there is someone else here that isnt in this group. A wander. tsktsktsk, Shouldnt have left your group little one.
Smiling as I wander from room to room peering in, Loving the hunt.
The hunt is the best part.
Now where is she? Walking along I finally hear something. What is she doing? tsktsktsk shame to wander off deary.
“Zoot be praised” I whisper to myself as I get closer to the rummaging going on ahead.
“Well, well, well” licking my lips as I enter the room “what do we have here? Arent you a pretty thing” smiling as I snatch her arm and put a hand over her mouth “Shhhhshhhshhh, tsktsktsk, shame such a pretty dear” laughing silently.
“thanks be to zoot!” I say as I drag her out into the hall and move towards the darkest part of the mall and the most quiet. “Shhhshhshhh tsktsktsk, dont fight it deary, you fight and I have to end the fun early. Zoots will be done”
