Jurina blinked so many times before she could fully open her eyes. Ouch! She felt a deep pain on her right stomach and then she touched it. Oh right, Mayu shot my stomach and made me lost a lot of blood. She lifted her head a little and then she saw her stomach had been bandaged neatly.
She tried to get up from the comfortable bed slowly… ignoring the pain on her stomach, and when she sat on it… she saw her reflection on the big wall mirror in front of her. Her head and her right arm were being bandaged. She brushed off the blanket a little and then she saw that her right foot was being bandaged as well. Cih… that girl, I thought she was going to kill me. She rolled her eyes.
“Oh, you’re awake… after 2 days.” The girl showed up and crossed her arms.
Jurina threw her eyes at the shorter girl who leaned her body onto the door. “Of course I’ll awake.” She pointed at the bandage on her forehead. She remembered that her head bumped hard onto the floor because she lost her strength after Mayu shot her stomach. “You’re the one who treating me so well. You have been expecting me to wake up, don’t you?” She smirked.
“Don’t get me wrong.” Mayu looked irritated as she saw Jurina’s mocking smirk. “I make you gain your consciousness back so I can shoot you again, because seeing you in pain is kinda fun.”
Somehow, Mayu’s answer made Jurina wanted to play a bit more. She looked at her gun and her twin knives on the table near the mirror. “Well you can use my knife there, you know? Stab me wherever you want… I’m so available.”
Mayu sighed. “You haven’t change at all.” She walked toward the table and then she took Jurina’s knife. “You’re still arrogant as always.” She took off the knife from its case and then she touched the blade as if she wanted to make sure that it was sharp enough to rip Jurina’s body. “Aren’t you afraid of death?”
Jurina calmly looked at Mayu who walked toward her. “No. I’ve prepared myself for that. Well… let’s call it as a job risk.” She smiled when Mayu put the sharp side of the knife onto her neck. She could feel the blade was touched her skin. “I’ve prepared myself to face the fate if someone wants to take a revenge on me… I’ve been killed many people who dearest to someone. I could die anytime.”
