I think I’m alright. *still trying to catch her breath - she feels a little lightheaded, but decides that it was just from the running* I think she nicked me a bit on the back, but I’m sure I’m fine. I just need to…I just need to lie down for a bit…
*collapses onto the floor unconscious, exposing the gash she had gotten from the blade, her jacket beginning to soak with blood*
*Darcy doesn’t bother wasting time to turn around, but continues to run toward the cafe, pulling the stranger along with her to try to get them to safety* Gah! *she exclaims, as she feels a cold blade slash against her back* *She continues to run until they get into the cafe, pulling her companion with her to hide behind the counter - some customers stare at them, startled*
Are you alright? *she asks the stranger, while attempting to catch her breath*
*Continues to look around for the woman* What…? Where is she? *begins to back away, her eyes trailing back to the entrance of the park* *lets out a shaky breath before yanking her companion towards the direction of the cafe*
*She stops again and stares at the pavement* But that might be my boyfriend out there…*her voice cracks* I can’t leave him alone…even if…*inhales a sharp breath* Even if he might be…dead. *She hears rustling nearby and looks around, alert*
*Darcy goes over to the stranger and takes their hand* It’ll…it’ll be alright. *she lies to reassure the stranger, and to reassure herself*
*turns around, her face solemn* The police are on their way. I - I can’t leave him out there alone…*her voice shakes, she is on the brink of tears* Go inside the cafe up the block - I work there. Ask for the manager, he’s a nice bloke…*she gives the stranger a small reassuring smile, but her eyes are filled with terror*
*turns back around to run into the park*
…What. *she froze, still holding the phone to her ear* That sounds like it’s…*shakes her head, in disbelief* No, it can’t be him…*looks at the stranger again, before looking over at the bushes and into the park* *she drops her phone and starts running into the park in search for the body*
*furrows her brow wearily* Why do you want to take Sebastian’s life? What has he done to you?
I don’t blame you…*is a bit scared herself* They’re taking a while to…Oh! Hello? Yes, hi. Yes, this is urgent…I’m calling to report…*hesitates* I’m calling to report a murder in Lunar Park.
Description? Uhm…male, in his twenties…hair color? *her eyes quickly dart over to the stranger, apologetically* Did you see how he looked like?
*Looks at the stranger, startled*
Of course! *her eyes dart around, panicked and without a clue what to do* Let me try the police…*quickly dials 911, anxiously biting her lip* How are you - are you alright?
