Who should be the next person I spend time with?. . .After I gave it some thought, I decided to check up on Poppy, to see how her body guarding was going. I finished up my lunch, cleaned up, and headed over to the room she was guarding. As expected, I found her pacing back and forth at the door like a toy soldier. She had accumulated another tray of food, making a small pile of said trays in the corner."Oh, heya Shiznit!" She called out, waving dramatically as I approached.
"AKA!" I snapped awake to Poppy knocking on my forehead and invading my personal space."I'm up, I'm up. You can stop now." I said, swatting her hand away. I stood up and stretched, trying to ward off this sleepiness."This confirms it! You're a heavy ass sleeper! You slept through the announcement AGAIN!" Poppy told me, laughing maniacally, clearly finding my deep sleeping to be top tier in the comedy department. After she composed her, she quickly dragged out of my cell before I could even blink. "How late am I this time?" I asked groggily.
Mia tried the key on the newly found door, which reminded me that I had to think of a way to get that key back from her, but my thoughts were quickly interrupted."Dammit, the key doesn't work." Mia said, frustrated as she returned the key to her pocket."W-well what are we supposed to d-do? I-if we can't get out of here, then…" Jinju choked out, panicking. Risa also didn't seem to like the reality check that Jinju just provided, as she started to panic as well."Hey, hey, it's ok." Urkst
"I think we should tell everyone about him.""...I agree." Reluctantly, I replied to Poppy. I knew we had to at some point, but now with the 'motivation' in progress, getting Ceáser out of his chains became a main priority, since he had gone even longer without food than us."Y-you do?" Poppy didn't seem like she expected that, but her eyes lit up as soon as I agreed."It's the best option we have, and we need to do it soon, so yes, I agree." I nodded my head to reassure her, "But we shou
As I continued to explain, almost everyone in the room seemed more and more convinced about my story. This was excluding Mia, who still seemed to just be gloating about how right she was."C.B, I thought about that too-" She murmured her congratulations to herself again as she took the key out of her pocket."Look, I'm really sorry for not telling you all earlier. I just want to get Ceáser out of there." I continued my apology, feeling the weight lift off my shoulders with every word I uttered. Mia let out a heft sigh.
……Ceáser's body sat there, up against the wall, limb, and unmoving.I was fully numb, completely frozen in sheer terror. Confusion, fear, anger, every emotion flooded my head, making even one rational thought impossible. After staring at Ceáser Balad's limp body for what seemed like hours, an awful sound pulled me out of my trance. I turned to the sound of Urkstin gagging and retching whatever he had left in his empty stomach.
I made my way down to Ceáser's feet, where Liam was sitting, examining the blood covering his shoe."My goodness, this is an unprecedented, and disturbing visual." Liam spoke, as I noticed the condition of Ceáser's foot. It was completely and utterly destroyed, as if every bone was broken. It was barely even distinguishable as a foot, causing an involuntary gag to escape me."Jesus Christ… how did that happen?" I questioned, genuinely grossed out."I would assume that the slab over there is the causation for this unsp
The Loudspeakers then gave out our 'Autopsy Report'."Contestant Ceáser Balad. Status: Deceased. Time of his death: 11:45 PM. Cause of his death: Blood Loss Caused by a Fatal Stab Wound. Based on these facts, you may collect alibis and prepare for his...trial." Was the information given out by the Loudspeaker, before shutting off. I hurried to write down the file information, while everyone else looked among themselves and ate."...So, does anyone have an alibi for that time?" Mia spoke up, looking around for anyone to speak up and share their account. Once I saw no one start, I decided to speak up.
