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.
