"It's done..." Momo mumbled. "N-none of us are murderers...no matter what the others might think."

Akio shivered and ran back to the elevator without saying a word. He refused to look at John's body and his face was covered with regret.

After the deed had been done, Kagayaki appeared to be in an almost trance-like state. Her arms remained at her sides, her breathing was shallow, her jaw was set, and her eyes were lowered, pointing in the vague direction of the body. Lyla's words seemed to bring her back to reality; she raised her head and gave the sharpshooter a simple nod.

She withdrew her gohei and approached the late John Bramwell, then slowly walked in a circle around him, waving the wand over his body as she did. The only sound she made came from the streamers rustling faintly in the stagnant air.

Lyla slowly lowers the revolver in her now-trembling hands and then holsters it, staring down at John's corpse.

She bites her lip and crosses her arms. "I don't think we need to stay here more than we already have."

Penelope pats Casey's head in comfort, "Don't worry Casey...I am here if you, or anyone else for that matter...needs assistance...a-as always..." She breathes slowly, a bit put off but remains calm as she can.

Casey rushes over to Penelope and squeezes her tightly in a hug, and the shaking of her shoulders suggest that she's silently sobbing.

"Hey, *sniff* is everyone okay? I know, *sniff* I know this sort of thing isn't for everybody. But... *sniff* this isn't the first time I've had to do this... *sniff*, and I know it's tough on you the first time, you're just kids after all... *sniff* *sniff*"

She continues to hide her face from everyone, while holding Penelope close.

"I know it's gotta be hard for you guys... So, thanks everybody for being so brave. Lyla, Kagayaki, Momo, Akio, Penny... I'm here if you guys need support, we'll move past this... *sniff* I'm sure."

Upon hearing the gunshot, Akio quickly lights himself on fire but thankfully Penelope responds with a quick bucket of water before the sprinklers go off.

[If you did anything you feel is too OOC in the last post, let us know and it'll be edited. This qt won't last forever, but everything you guys post in here is assumed to take place after killing John and before getting in the elevator, regardless of what happens in the main thread]

“Well then, looks like not all of you are hypocrites.” John’s cheerful voice said to his killers. “Let’s see who you really are.”

Casey had her steel bat.
Momo picked up a pair of brass knuckles.
Penelope grabbed a slender hammer.
Akio poured some lighter fluid over John’s head, then got a matchbook for himself.
Kagayaki grabbed an unassuming knife from the mat.

“This is quite the display.” John laughed. “I wonder-” Lyla smacked him across the face with the butt of the gun. She then quickly undid his latches and let him drop to the ground. She quickly walked to the back of the group and pointed the gun straight at his head. She nodded to the others.

“Make it quick.” Kagayaki requested.

Casey raised the bat as John unsteadily got to his feet. She smashed it against his ribs and chest a few times. Almost surreal, but it felt like nobody could hear the screams. Like it was all white noise.

John spat out some blood. Casey almost certainly hit him enough where he’d die on his own if given the time.

“None of this means shit...you’re all trapped in my game. You’ll all turn on each other even without me.” John smiled.

Momo was next. He punched John a few times quick across the face.

“This is just beautiful…” John said as getting punched by Momo. “The Ultimate Superhero...it just all makes me laugh!”

Penelope smashed a hammer across his face and then with the next swing, drove the claw into his chest.

John seemed barely able to speak. He still creaked out a smile. “I really en-enj-...” He seemed dead already. “...one of you...is not supposed to be here…” He smiled. “...I wonder how they’ll...play this game…”

Akio threw the matchbook by John’s feet and set him ablaze. It was only a mere few seconds but John just laughed. “I was right!” He seemed to almost begin to slump over. Was he finally dead?

Kagayaki went forward quick, baring the knife out. She buried it in his heart, and he slowly slumped to the ground, unmoving. She stepped back.

BANG A final bullet precisely went into his head. It was done. The fire slowly went out..but the smell of burning flesh hung uncomfortably in the air. The whole ordeal in actuality didn’t last long at all, it only felt like it did.

Each person nodded at each other. They had each delivered some form of a killing blow. Nobody’s face betrayed how they felt about the experience. Nobody seemed to get any pleasure from it. Nobody tortured John longer than was necessary to get their blow in. It was just a shared experience they’d have to bury together.

“H-He’s dead, right?” Momo asks. “This isn’t hypnotism?”

“Yeah, he’s dead.” Casey covered her mouth. “Even he couldn’t fake...this.”
