From the Inside Flap
"Come quietly? Are you arresting me?"
"Let's just say the NIS has a few questions for you."
"Don't trust him, Emily," Ethan shouted. " They're going to kill us no matter what you do."
One of Kim's men struck him hardbehind the ear to silence him, and he slumped to the floor. Just then, Connieturned the corner.
"What the hell... Jay, what's going...?"
Before she could finish her question, and with no visible sign of emotion, Kim shot her twice in the chest. The force of the impact knocked her back into the hallway, where she collapsed in a heap against the wall. Emily turned to go check on her friend.
"Stop right there! No one else has to get hurt if you just cooperate."
Emily felt a different sort of energy rise inside of her, something entirely new. Was it revenge? Or bloodlust? She couldn't tell, but whatever it was, it felt volcanic in its enormity. Chanting voices from her dreams echoed in her ears: "Michiko, Michi-san, Michi-sama,Michi-kami." What were they trying to tell her? Go along with him? Resist? Shecouldn't quite tell.
