“You look pale. Are you okay?”

“No,” she replied, her words robotic, although her chest tightened when the redhead went to take Rey’s shoulder. Panic won over. Changing the subject then seemed to be the only logical action to take: “You’re good.”

Faye opened her mouth, but didn’t speak.

“Your shooting,” Rey clarified. “You handle a gun very well.”


“Rhodes was good, too.” She met the sniper’s eyes, widened with quiet fury while Rey forced a neutral expression within her own. “She even got a hit in, right here.” She touched the shoulder Faye’s hand was quick to shy from. For a fleeting second, she felt the phantom gunshot wound the sniper’s wife had delivered. “Safronov returned the favor. Was the head, wasn’t it? Fortunately, headshots don’t hurt that much. If you die right away, that is. How long did it take for you to figure she was gone, before you found her body?”

Rey felt as though her soul had just detached from her body.

The elevator door opened. Faye stepped out alone, her left hand over her face as though hiding it for some reason. “Look, if you didn’t want to talk about it, you should’ve fucking said so.”
