Characters: Itachi, Kairi
Setting: Maid's Hallway
Time: Late Night 007/Early Morning 008, depending on how you like to look at it. About 1:30ish. For Itachi, this takes place a while after this log.
Summary: Itachi runs into a slew of monsters and Kairi. Bonus points if you can guess who scares him more. ETA (as of 4/2): They are now hanging out in the Empty Bedroom, exchanging information. Itachi is trying not to vomit blood on everything, and Kairi is trying not to pee herself because he is very scary. (5/5) Added complete tag; they are on their way to the Projector Room for another log.
Warnings: violence, angst, angels of death, et cetera...
Itachi stumbled into the Maid's Hallway, panting. On his way between the Dark Bedroom (which he'd sort of claimed for his own, despite being more likely to sleep in the Hospital Room than anywhere else) and the bathroom, where he'd spent a good ten minutes coughing up blood-tinged mucus or mucus-tinged blood (depending on the proportions of each), he'd been waylaid by a pack of the rotting dog monsters. Two lay dead in the Greenhouse, one decapitated, and the other completely incinerated by a Great Fireball. He regretted choosing that course of action, as it had cost him in chakra and seemed to have summoned some fire-based ghost that had pursued him to the room's threshold before suddenly giving up.
He had a feeling that there had been one other dog-thing in the pack that had attacked him, but he could barely hear at the moment over the sound of his panting. His lungs screamed with every breath.
The hand that was propped against the wall for support curled into a fist. I will not die here, he reminded himself. I can't die here. This is not my time. Not yet.
