[ Mia and Maya were dead. Mia and Maya were dead. Dead. Dead, dead, dead.
The oust had been overturned. Someone had chosen Mia and Maya to die, last night. What had that person been thinking? If they'd thought Mia and Maya were bad badgers, the mirrors told them otherwise. Only one bad badger ally found. Matt Engarde and Simon Keyes, the victims of the first oust. Myriam and now Kristoph's team were dead. That meant either Mr Armando's or Uncle Ray's team was the bad one.
But when the vote had unanimously voted for Mr Armando and Mr Blackquill, someone had overturned it. Someone had murdered her cousins. Her innocent cousins.
Whoever killed them, they must be a monster. A monster, a foolish monster with a broken soul.
Not that Pearl has seen the mirrors, yet. She hasn't had the chance.
Trucy is the one that drags Pearl away from her cousins' corpses, away from the sight of their spilled blood. Pearl barely pays attention as she's dragged back to Daryan Crescend room, Trucy's room. There's no blood or corpses here, yet the image of her cousins is stained on her mind. It's all she can see through her tears as she sinks to the floor again. ]
SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDST OF THE OUSTING POLL TIMEFRAME
[This is getting out of hand, and right now... Trucy is starting to be the only person she trusts. To talk to, anyway. So, like she did earlier in the day, she loops her arm through Trucy's and leads her to her room. Hopefully everyone just assumes they're gossiping about boys.
Locking the door behind her, Pearl gently bangs her head against it. ]
All right. So. It's my cousins versus Mr Armando and Mr Blackquill.
[ This is not a good outcome. ]
AFTER THIS CLUE
[ Pearl leads Trucy back to her room, the "Morgan Fey" room. It's not that she doesn't trust the others (her trust list is longer than her don't trust list, seriously), not exactly, but she is becoming more aware that if there are really bad badgers that they could easily be listening in when she's discussing things.
So, she figures that the Teen Girl Discussion Squad should maybe avoid speaking in front of, y'know, the whole room when making plans or just... figuring things out.
Locking the door behind her, Pearl turns to Trucy. ]
It might be safer to talk here. About everything. I hate to mistrust anyone, but... [ WELL ]
