Rei desperate for air inhaled some of the water in a small amount before that hand from the surface reached down into the depth.
Fingertips extended out towards it to grab hold desperately as the red cloud veered off the swarm of malicious insects. An instant relief came over her as she emerged from the water. Once she fell upon the raft, instantly Her body started to reject the water in her lungs over the side of the vessel. Weakly she rolled onto her back and glanced up at him. The scowl on his face matched her own. Of course, it was him to witness her weakness as well as the others. Her humiliation having an audience. Why didn't he let the others save her
... he could care less about any of them.
she remembered his harsh words over breakfast and thus the reason she even stormed off in the first place. To have to save her like some damsel. Her pride at the moment extremely fragile. she looked away from his disapproving glance " Just say it."
Knowing he had some harsh words for her. Like a father scolding a child. The cuts on her legs deep and profusely bleeding, the chain of his weapon still wrapped around her left leg securely and cutting off circulation. Slowly she sat up and started to unravel it before dropping it at his feet in, a heaping bundle. Her hair matted to her face and welts along her skin from the insects, she wasn't looking her best but that was the least of her concern. The witch still lurking somewhere below and she was afraid. Afraid of being dragged down into the water again.
Rei suddenly grew pale. Paler than normal And held out her hand to press its palm against her forehead. An overwhelming wave of nausea hit her. At first, you could suspect the blood loss was the cause but if you were preceptive, you'd see the welts and deep cuts on her leg, where the witch and insects penetrated her flesh, started to darken, Black inky veins started to creep out in all directions under her skin, traveling through her blood and trying to connect. The infection spreading rather quickly and Rei's vision grew heavy before falling limb against the raft. The darkness growing inside her. She couldn't remember what happened after that.
Did she die? Did she become Possessed? Or one of the very creatures she sought her life out to destroy. She wouldn't know. she wasn't there. She was no longer.... Rei.@AwesomeZero5@Dark Light@Calatrava
