I’ll shut up now.
Right. Great. So we have another homo. Along with her and Nathaniel we going to be over run by them. Not that I care overally. I knew I wasn’t in with a chance with this girl —hell, I wasn’t even trying to. I was only trying to piss her off. Or at least get into her pants. Slightly annoyed i hadn’t noticed before, I smile as she leans in closer, looking forward to whatever perls of wisdom fall from her mouth this time.
“Because at least I’ve got something to fight for,” she whispers and a derranged, manic smile spreads across my face and a slow dark laugh rattles my chest.
“Well, well, well Iris Mylls of 5, It seems to me —based on the obvious evidence in front of me— that we should have an allience. What do you say? 1 and 5? Just think how unstoppable we’ll be together. I know more about you than you do me —so wouldn’t that make it easier for me to come after you if we’re enemies?” I swagger towards her this time and tuck a piece of her stray dark hair behind her ear knowing how uncomfortable she’s getting, “It would be a very wise choice to side with me.”
To be honest, I’m not big on the alliance bullshit but I feel like i should at least try. And Iris would be a very wise choice indeed.
Lloyd wants to be my ally? The last thing I though would come out of his mouth. He gets closer to me and tucks a piece of my hair behind my ear, and I tense up immediately. I don’t want him near me anymore; now that the truth is out, I’m done playing games.
But now I’m temped with a decision, or at least I think I am. Everything in my body screams that he’s lying, he’s trying to play me, but I can’t really know. And the last thing I need is another alliance that falls through. “Are you serious?” I ask him, stepping away from him. I look him over again. He looks like he’s strong, someone that could win in a hand-to-hand fight. And he’s already shown that he’s moderately good with weapons. But not to forget heartless.
“Aren’t you a Career?” I ask, but after looking at him once again I know that’s not an issue. He didn’t volunteer, and he sure as hell doesn’t want to be here. Besides, no Career would want to side with him. “Never mind that. But, are you serious about aligning? What would it do me aligning with you?”
The idea takes me back to when I ask Fema about allies. She said to chose allies that were valuable, but not ones that you would want to be friends with. Being friends with Lloyd would never happen, and he sure looks like he can get the job done. Maybe he’s ally material after all.
“Of course I’m serious, sweetie. Do I seem like some who plays games?” I smile sweetly in hope that my total lack of care won’t be automatically be detected, “Anyways, doesn’t being a Career give me the option to ally with whomever I want? Look at me,” I step back and open my arms wide to show her the entirety of me, “do I look like someone the rest of the Careers would want to side with?”
I let the question hang in the air for a little while, not really wanting an answer because lets face it, we both know it was rhetorical. No one would want to side with me. I’m Career scum. Every one knows that. I don’t care about it but that’s not the point. Aligning with this girl, Iris, would be so beneficial to both myself and her. I know she can do all the dirty work if can’t be bothered. And if she proves little use I can just kill her while she’s sleeping. Short and quick. Not usually how I go about it but any longer and she’ll be useless.
I raise a wary eyebrow at her and hope desperately that she says yes. However if she says no, that’ll be her mistake, not mine.
