Chapter 4: No!
Luna was arguing with Pavel about how to defeat the so-called zombies. Because she was a shinigami she knew best. But Pavel was a vampire, so he knew a great deal about the occult too. And Chihon was occasionally commenting on how she didn’t believe a thing they were saying.
Hikaru, on the other hand, sat against the wall and held the hand of her brother. She knew his sleep wasn’t peaceful at all, even if he looked like it.
She sighed. There should be something they could do.
Right when she sighed again, Yuugi sat down facing her. He dragged an old monitor with him. Hikaru just looked at him, not bothering to say anything, which set Yuugi off.
“So I thought, since we are immune to the virus, that we should find out who is causing this. Since a virus has a maker, usually.”, he started. No-one really listened but Hikaru, but that was enough for Yuugi right now.
“And if we could track the virus safely, we could find the source!”, he cheered. Hikaru nodded. “We need a computer for that though. And computers will get infected.”
“Yes. That is why I brought this monitor. So you could use me as computer, seeing I’m immune now.”
No no no no no no.
Hikaru didn’t say that, she screamed it. Hysterically.
It was not going to happen. Not after all that happened before all this. Not after she almost died, Yuugi confessed to her and they had to erase his memories. Hikaru would not let it happen!
“But how else are you going to be happy?”
Yuugi was looking at her. So was everybody else but they didn’t matter right now. “I won’t be happy if you sacrifice yourself for me you derp!”
She was still screaming. It was still not going to happen.
“But I’m immune now! I’ll be fine! Ever saw that one movie where this guy ends up being the only one alive? Don’t want to end like that right?”
Her boyfriend was an idiot.
Her boyfriend was an idiot but he had a point.
And Hikaru sat down into submission.
