"Let's just say the NIS has a fewquestions for you."
"Don't trust him, Emily," Ethanshouted. "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'sgoing...?"
Before she could finish herquestion, 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 collapsedin a heap against the wall. Emily turned to go check on her friend.
"Stop right there! No one else hasto get hurt if you just cooperate."
Emily felt a different sort of energy riseinside of her, something entirely new. Was it revenge? Or bloodlust? Shecouldn't tell, but whatever it was, it felt volcanic in its enormity. Chantingvoices 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.
