“ I said I'm sorry alright? I should have not asked if you had to have such a terrible look on your face, but if you ever decide to tell me the truth about you...I'm all ears”.
After he said this he grabbed the clean half of the sandwich and walked away. Bastard he could have left me the clean one instead of the dirty one. He has no consideration towards women.
“ You selfish piece of trash! Come back here with my food”! And here I thought he looked pretty cute when he acts his age, guess I really shouldn't keep my hopes up. It is Jiro after all.
I looked at the dirty half of the sandwich that was in my hand, I sniffed it and took a bite. It seemed alright so I ate the rest and when I looked at the clock it was 4 in the afternoon. I guess there are no rounds today. From time to time this occasionally happens. We get breaks between our rounds allowing us to recover. That is, if we get injured during the rounds.
I walked around the inside of the building, the space was much larger the first time I set foot in here. Back then I was tiny so of course it makes sense to seem smaller now then it was back then. It was quiet as usual. I passed by the training area there was no one in site. Nothing was misplaced or touched since we left.( because I was the one and the only who cleans the place). I passed by the meeting hall. That is where our meetings take place.
The place reeked of newly wet paint. The building was here before I came to this place. Everything looks new and in some places it looks old. So desolate the place was in the afternoon. I saw some of the staff in their usual meeting places around the building. I noticed that they never make eye contact with me. Since almost everyone knew I was a monster. But looking at the bright side of being one I can scare the shit out of people if I just glance at them. It's a little funny now that I think about it. You can say I'm weird but I think it's hilarious.
My feet started to ache. Maybe from too much walking? No can't be. Maybe cause I'm so used to running in my heeled boots that slippers have become uncomfortable to me.
What ludicrously. I started to think about Joshua again. I really need to stop this unsightly behavior.
“ He's just some weak little boy”.
No, he's a man and I know he's not weak.
“ He's just like a brother...nothing more”!
But, do brothers hug sisters like that? Thats not right.
I started to develop a headache. Until I heard gun shots, I looked at the sign above me that the shooting range was being used. I peeked inside and found Yoko and Sen. It looked like they were testing their guns.
“ Good afternoon”. They stopped firing and looked my way. Yoko settled her gun next to the “pile” basket ( which contained 4 other guns that belonged to her) and hugged me. Yoko is such a nice person(I still don't appreciate the nicknames).She always sticks up for me. Even if shes almost 4 feet tall for her age. I looked down at her and it was as if I was gazing at some foreign doll from America. She was too cute but, no one was allowed to say that in front of her, so long as she has her rifle with her you can't say squat or else you'll never live to see the light of day ever again.
“HI” Sen yelled out to me as he kept shooting the target. Yoko released me and asked if I wanted to try.
“ I...Using a gun is not my forte”.
“ Come on at least use this one, its a lot easier to handle then the ones I use”. She gave me a small handgun.
“ This gal's a SIG P938 9MM pistol. It has G10 grips and it comes with night sights too. The cartridge platform is also similar in size to the P238 pistol. Though I prefer this one. The dimensions are slightly different than its .380ACP counter part, but of course would have given you the kahr CW40 3.5” SS Poly Frame...aw man but this one-”. I pinched her arm making her yelp.
“Don't go weird on me with your Gun Fanatic self”. She rubbed her arm where I pinched her, I then heard Sen chuckle.
“ You know her, when she starts talking about guns...theres no other way but to pinch her to shut her up”. I'm pretty sure there are other ways but, I guess pinching might be the best choice.
“ I'm sorry. I can't help it, just went you start ranting on about your gun types...there's no freaking way to shut you up”.
“ Well excuse me for being like this. Don't judge me, judge the one who taught me”.
“ And that would be...”? She hesitated, I got the feeling she didn't want me to know.
“ My father”.
“ I'm guessing he's...right”? She looked down and sighed. Maybe I should have not asked.
I know most of the members in the agency are survivors of the infection. I know some of their families have...past on, at least they had a real family.
“ A-anyways Satsuki...hows the wee boy”? I was pretty sure she was talking about Joshua so I told her that I went to see him and told her the alternate of what happened there.
“ Oh, so whens he gonna be discharged from there”?
“ I'm not sure, they didn't inform me”.
“ At least it's not life threatening, see ya didn't do too much damage Sat”. She keeps coming up with these weird nicknames...at least they make sense( some of them).But I felt the guilt in me when she mention it being my fault, and I know too that it was my fault. The losing of my sanity happens a lot.
“I don't think you should judge her...Yok”. I looked at sen.
“ Hey, but I wasn't judging her, just spoke the truth”.
“The truth hurts...especially coming from your mouth...it hurts 3 times more. Its like pouring salt on a deep wound, like adding fuel to the fire, like running over a small puppy and not even bothered to go back and check on it-”.
“ Okay we get the point Sen, look at Yoko she's pissed...shes even pointing “Gazelle” at you”.
You see, you can tell when Yoko's serious. Gazelle is one of her favorites in her collection. If I could recall it was an AK-47 military rifle. She was happy when Dean brought it in the day he ordered it. Knowing him he might have made a few minor adjustments to it. On the other hand if she where to kill you at long range ( though you wouldn't know) her top choice would be the MAUSER SP66 that she personally ordered from Germany. Know one knows how or when but she never told us about it.
She was still pointing the gun at Sen, I stepped back a bit to give them more space. During this time and this time only I'm actually quite scared. I backed up into the wall, frightened I looked back and forth at the two people that were now holding guns at each other.
“ Hey...guys you shouldn't be doing this, over such a trivial matter”.
“ My words hurt huh”. Yoko cocked the gun at Sen aiming straight for his forehead.
“ At least I didn't call you a dwarf aga- oh...sorry I said it didn't I”?
Dammit these two are always like this, Yoko can't control herself, she needs to learn how to control her emotions...though I shouldn't be talking I can't do that either.
Yoko positioning Gazelle at Sen forehead, she really looked like she was gonna shoot him. Her posture changed. She usually slumps but she was standing straight. Her shoulders supporting the weight of the heavy rifle, her aim was sharp. She took the first shot...and missed his head by 2 inches. The sound of the gun shot echoed through the room. My heart was beating so fast. It was throbbing, the shock made me slump to my knees. I collapsed on the floor shaking in fear. The only reason why I was so frightened was because each of the agencies guns was specially re-made to specifically kill off Moon Phasers. To be more specific the bullets where replaced by silver metal material and cotted with Deans version of a tranquilizer. The doses are made to knock down the beasts. Once they are shot with one of the bullets they either reduce the movement or if the dose is mixed with cobra venom the beast slowly and painfully stops moving and dies. I've only seen that happen once, and being in this type of situation...knowing Yoko she might have put in the mixed bullet, it might be a good idea to get out of the room as soon as possible
