    Shin immediately runs off after Sean, while Takezo tries to free himself with his sword. He hacks away at the wire, but his sword is stopped. A second attempt fails as well, at which point Takezo shakes his leg in annoyance. The wires have lossened up, but his leg is still entangled in them. With a bit more shaking, he frees himself and is able to pull his leg out.
    Shin gets to the spot under the hole in the wall of the building next to the construction site. He jumps up into it and finds himself in a dark clothing storage. But many of the display dummies and rolling coat racks, covered with plastic have fallen over. There was obviously a fight here. Shin begins to carefully search around the area.

    Takezo kicks away at the wires after he finally got rid of them. As he looks up, he sees Andre and Ryu standing outside the entrance of the raw building, looking in his direction. Ryu looks at him uninterested, showing no emotion whatsoever. But Andre is looking down, covering his hand with one face, shaking his head and chuckling.
    Takezo turns away to go look at that spear, but he can hear Andre say "that's karma for you".

    Tomoe is kneeling next to Dino, who's laying on his side. She turns him over and deals with her emotions in her own way. Maybe it's due to her touching his cheek, but Dino opens his eyes, but immediately also coughs up blood. Blood is draining into his left eye, but he doesn't even seem to notice. His eyes are glassy and looking empty. With a weak voice he stammers "Honey..." and a faint smile shows on his face. "i know you'd come to pick me up." Having heard the tone of a soft female voice (but not really understanding the actual words), he thinks Tomoe is his wife.
    After that he closes his eyes. Tomoe then notices the presence of someone and finds Takezo standing behind her, looking curiously at (the spear in) Dino.
    It's obviously consisting of the bugs. But they are not alive and some of the green goo is showing through the cracks. It would appear that in this 'weapon' the bugs are compressed and glued together to form a solid weapon.

    In the clothing storage, Shin has taken a good look around. He's about to return to the site, when he trips and falls over. "Stupid clothes everywhere" he says to himself, but then he spots something. Walking over, he finds Sean's corpse. His face has goo on it and the eye he has left is wide open, capturing the fear of his last moment. The other one is missing and has been replaced with a cockroach that's sitting in it comfortably. In and around his mouth, bits and pieces of bugs can be seen. But there are also still some of them crawling in and out his mouth as well. His hands are tensely clinging to his throat. His body has a lot of gooey spots on it too.
    A slight shiver runs down Shin's spine.



    ooc: I actually wanted Dino to develop the Tomoe-leader situation at this point from the beginning. But while writing this i came up with the wife thing. It's a bit of a cliche, but I liked the peacefulness it has. Both of them didn't work together so I dropped the leader thing.
    The Sean-finding situation is a cliche too, but hey, everyone needs his cheesy horror movie moment. And at least he didn't trip over Sean himself.

    Shin looks down at the body of Sean and takes a hard gulp... he doesnt really notice but a tear forms in each eye. He lifts his hands to rub his eyes, his lips quivering...

    "Dang... d-dust... in...*gulp* here..."

    Shin kneels by Sean and as tears flow down his cheeks silently, he picks the cockroach out of Sean's socket and brushs the bugs from his face, before he lightly closes Sean's eyes...

    FLASHBACK

    A little pub, Tokyo:

    Shin, dressed in a black suit is sat with others dressed similar. Holding a pint glass infront of him he thinks back on the funeral he just sat through. Suddenly, remembering his phone is off he turns it back on, when not long after he gets a call...

    "Is this Shima Shinnosuke? Shin-chan?"

    "Umm, yeah, who's this?"

    "Its the hospice. Are you sat down?"

    "W-wha? My mama, whats happened?"

    "We've been trying to get hold of you..."

    "I was at my grandpa's funeral..."

    "..."

    "She's... isnt she..."

    "Shin-chan, your mother has passed away, you need to come to the hospice."


    Present;

    Shin grips his black gloved fists and gets up from Sean's side.

    "Man, I wish I could have got to know you better... I guess the only thing I can do for you now is to find Tomoe-san for you."

    Shin uses the power of his Suit to pick up Sean's body and carries it back out to the yard.

    Keiko loses a bit of her bluster as she watches Shin exit with Sean's body in his arms. She exhales and lets her sword arm drop to her waist, the blade distending. She sees the wetness in his eyes and offers him a small smile.

    "He....he was a friend of yours?"

    It took a while for Takezo to shake loose the wires that were binding him to the corpse but he felt releaved to see the two brothers appear again. Atleast now he knew that they weren't up to anything however it didn't help to know that the transfers hadn't started yet. He see the perv laughing at him to which he sticks him the middle finger before making his way towards the spear. The big sis, was there already trying to comfort the dying man.

    From what he saw, the spear was made out of bugs glued together with god knows what... "Green bug juice... Yucks" It didn't stop him from touching the weapon. Putting his hand on the spear, Takezo started shaking the weapon free from the mans liveless body. "Looks like he won't be needing this, huh?" he said to Tomoe
    Computer says no... *COUGH*

    Shin lightly places Sean's body down.

    "Ah, no... not really, he was a good guy, but I didnt really know him..."

    Shin, unable to look squarely at Keiko instead looks over to where Naomi is lying, near to Keiko. He walks up to her prone form and checks to see if she has any life signs.

    Shin looks back briefly to Keiko as he does this;

    "Sean-kun was a better guy than me, and the Kid was too, before he was body snatched. This has been a real horrific afternoon... *sigh* Whats left of the players now? Me? Chimney? The Brothers? Seems like all the good ones do go in the end..."

    Shin felt eyes burning into him and looked over to the building in the yard for a second but not long enough to actually see the brothers there.

    "I have no idea whats going to happen now... but as soon as I know how Tsundere Girl is here, I can find Tomoe for Sean... then me and three others have unfinished business."

    Shin's tears seem to dry as his forehead scrunches anticipating whatever chaos was soon to follow once the head-count was over.

    ooc: Might as well create my own fun.

    Takezo steps past the still crouching Tomoe and starts giving the spear sticking in Dino a closer inspection. He grabs on to it boldly, but nothing happens. Seems like it wasn't of the exploding kind after all, which is good for him, Tomoe and Dino. Takezo starts pulling at it. He'd get it out more easily if he used his foot to hold Dino's body down, but it seem even he has that much decency. Or doesn't he?
    It's the same as any stab wound. You're supposed to leave the object in the wound, because it blocks the blood. When he pulls the spear out, blood starts gushing out of the wound. Dino violently comes to life with pain, in a death stuggle. Looks like there is no peaceful death for him after all.

    "Honey..." and a faint smile shows on his face. "i know you'd come to pick me up."




    Tomoe choked back her tears and smiled at Dino without caring if he could see her or not.
    She didn't know how to answer him as his wife would have so she answered as if he were her brother.
    "Of course I came, idiot. You just lie there and think about how I'm too good for you."

    When Takezo pulled the insect spear from Dino's body she felt she could have killed him without any remorse. The ruthless survivor inside of her thought it was a valid response. Caring Tomoe and Ruthless Tomoe took a back seat to Scared Tomoe as Dino jerked up in pain and coughed up blood. Her heart raced as she let out of yell of shock and surprise.

    He looked pitiful and nothing like the incredibly strong man she briefly knew. Dino had put an incredible amount of faith in her and she felt that she had failed him. At the very least she thought that she could administer the coup de grace to her friend. She didn't know if it was out of sense of guilt or a sense of duty. Either way Dino Kordango deserved a more dignified death.

    She closed her eyes before aiming her gun at Dino's head.

    "I'm so sorry. You were a good friend."

    With a painfully heavy heart Tomoe fired her x-gun.


    OOC: Sorry if I godmoded but Dino seemed to be on his way out if not already dead. Let me know and I'll edit.
    Sorry about the prolonged absences too. I'll try to post more often.

    Shin sees Naomi is still breathing. Taking a sigh of relief, he wipes her hair from her face and turns to Keiko as he boosts his Suit to pick Sean's body up again;

    "Keep an eye on her. Shes alive for now." is all Shin could think of. He was clueless as when the transfer would begin, if it would to begin with. If the 8-Ball hadnt wiped his mind of the last hunt's end, he'd be more relieved than he was now.

    Shin makes his way over to where Takezo and Tomoe are stood over Dino and watches as Tomoe finishes him off.

    The pain Shin felt as he saw another of those he considered the "good guys" of the team was wrenching in his chest. More so that it was Tomoe that was doing it. He knew the two had some kind of background from watching them banter in the room.

    Shin began to wonder what the point of all this was. Who were the ones monitoring them as they led these "new lives"?
    What purpose did these hunts really have if he only knew aliens truly existed when he arrived in the room last night? Would every day be like this one from now on?

    Shin drops Sean's body lightly at Tomoe's feet.

    "I found Sean. I think I owe it to him that, well, I think he really... liked you and I think he would have wanted you to know before he... well... just... look at him..."

    Shin turned away from Tomoe as he could feel his eyes well up again.

    "Chimney, now the alien's gone... lets finish those brothers off... They attacked both us and they could attack Keiko or Tomoe in the future... so lets finish them. You up for it?"

    Shin gripped his gantzsword tightly and extended the blade to a fair length.

    ooc: That's totally up to you. Didn't see it coming though. I thought she'd give it to Takezo for being such an ass.


    Tomoe's shot quickly ends Dino's struggle, with a violent explosion of his upper body. Not the prettiest way to ease a friend's suffering. Shin walks over and dumps the second bad news in the form of Sean's lifeless body. Good thing she doesn't know about Naomi's condition, which would put further strain on her psyche.
    After that, Shin get's on with it and makes his proposal to Takezo. It only takes a few seconds, until he hears the familiar voice of Andre, who is sitting on the roof of a small shack near the fence. After exiting the building, and having a blast watching Takezo, the brothers had followed them, to see what they were all doing there.

    Andre looks down on Shin and shakes his head in disbelieve "Why would he care about us hurting the girls. Maybe you didn't see it, but he just killed that brother. If he hadn't pulled out that thing, the big guy might've made it till the send. On top of that, he forced the girl to put her friend out of misery. And it wasn't too long ago, that he used your girl as a human shield."

    Then he turns to Keiko who is nearby on the site next to Naomi.
    "I hope you use these moments to look behind his mask. It was him that tried to kill us before, and we let him walk away. But here he is, planning to kill us again the first chance he gets. He tries to show you a charming side to woo you, but there is anger bubbling beneath the surface. Just hope there are always other people around he can take it out on, when he can't control himself anymore. If not, he'll just as easily vent it on you." Now he looks with disgust at Shin "Our father was exactly the same."

    Andre get's on his feet and takes out his weapon. "You shouldn't justify things you simply want to do with heroic reasons, boy. Just come!"
    "For Feanor was made the mightiest in all parts of body and mind, in valour, in endurance, in beauty, in understanding, in skill, in strength and subtlety alike, of all the Children of Illuvatar, and a bright flame was in him"

    Tomoe looked down at Sean's body.
    "Liked me? Shit. I'm just...shit. Hopeless with stuff like that. I just..."
    For the second time in mere minutes she found herself apologizing to a dead man.
    "Sean...I'm sorry."

    She bent down and kissed Sean on his cheek. Even a posthumous confession was a confession and she felt honored.
    "If I can bring you back I'll ask you out. I-I'll try not to be so stupid in the future."

    Two dead men who cared about her. More than almost anything she wanted to survive the mission. The only thing she wanted more was to take out her frustration. In a silent rage Tomoe ran to join Shin and Takezo.
    "Takezo...pull that shit again and I will kill you without a moment's hesitation. Hey, where's Naomi?"


    OOC: I'm not entirely sure Tomoe is going to keep her sanity after this mission.
