[Milliways: The Corridors]

It's been a long night. Mel had a particularly tough grab in the Uppers, and set upon by an unusually together group of lurks on her way home. Now, she's tired, messy, and really looking forward to a shower and snuggles.

She's walking through the halls when she hears a gunblast.

By the time she hits the right corridor, she's running.
velocitygirl: (ignore me this isn't your fight)

Inyri's backing out of the room as Mel runs down the hall. Bloody and slightly shaken.

Not as shaken as the first time she did this though.

It's over. It's really over.
velocitygirl: (i love your lack of self respect)

Inyri whirls around and stares at Mel. She knows she's security, she's seen her around...and her face falls.

"It was self-defense," She says quickly, her hand going back to her stomach, pressing the already bloody shirt against the wound.
velocitygirl: (it's like you're a drug)

"He's dead. Again." She replies. "I shot him. Again. He stabbed me...and threw me against a wall."

There's bruises around her neck from his hand. All the other bruises have faded. But this isn't the first time he's hurt her. But it was the last.
velocitygirl: (we are unlovable)

"He was already dead." She's starting to shake. Finally it's starting to set in. She's murdered someone. Yeah, an asshole that deserved it. But still.

"He seems dead. Still."
velocitygirl: (i can't accept that it's over)

[personal profile] velocitygirl 2007-06-16 12:12 am (UTC)(link)
She sits, chewing on her lower lip for a moment. "Am..." She swallows hard. "Am I going to go to jail? 'Cause I...I need to find someone first."
velocitygirl: (forget the reckless things we've done)

[personal profile] velocitygirl 2007-06-16 12:19 am (UTC)(link)
"Okay." Inyri murmurs, nodding, and taking Mel's arm to stand. "And yeah, it is."
velocitygirl: (i like the way you still say please)

[personal profile] velocitygirl 2007-06-16 12:29 am (UTC)(link)
"He's my ex-boyfriend." Inyri says, taking a breath. "I shot him when I was with him. He wasn't...the nicest man. A crime lord. And...then he got here. And...wasn't very nice again. It's been almost a year. It was time for him to go."
velocitygirl: (Default)

"If the usual kind is the hitting and..." She drifts off, glancing away. Her voice started to shake there, and she hates it.
velocitygirl: (ignore me this isn't your fight)

[personal profile] velocitygirl 2007-06-16 12:44 am (UTC)(link)
"Inyri Forge." She sighs, rubbing her eye with a bloody hand.
velocitygirl: (i love your lack of self respect)

"Zekka Thyne." She looks at her hand for a moment before pulling it away from Mel.
velocitygirl: (the minor fall and the major lift)

[personal profile] velocitygirl 2007-06-16 12:50 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah. I do." She sighs. "I don't need to go to the infirmary, if I have to go to the cells. Just...get me some bacta patches from the bar and I'll be fine."
velocitygirl: (forget the reckless things we've done)

[personal profile] velocitygirl 2007-06-16 12:58 am (UTC)(link)
"It's just...it's not that deep. Just bled a lot and hurt a lot. Bacta will do." She sighs. "And...Wes Janson and Shalla Nelprin, mostly. And...notes for Jack Harkness, Corran Horn, Tycho Celchu."
velocitygirl: (you just don't know what happened)

[personal profile] velocitygirl 2007-06-16 01:07 am (UTC)(link)
"I don't know if Jack or Corran or Tycho are in the bar. Shalla's definitely downstairs...and Wes comes in often. You'll get to talk to the last two, at least." She glances over at Mel. "Atton Rand, too. He should be easy to reach."
