Spinning, spinning, spinning.

Her eyes flashed open to the creak of the door. The lounge was dark except for the dim blue light of the TV that flickered over her. A half-empty popcorn bowl sat on the coffee table. Evelyn jerked up, glancing back, forth, ahead, and behind her, but the room was empty except for her... At least, from what she could tell in this gloom. It was just the TV... Her gaze flickered back to the screen, where the main character was creeping down a dark cabin hallway, the door left swinging behind them, crrreeeeeeeeeak, crrrrreaaaaaaaak, crrrreeeeeeeeeak. Stupid fucking movie... A shudder ran through her. I almost had a heart attack... That's what she got for flipping on a horror movie right before bed.

How long had she been here...? Was it past curfew?

I'm such an idiot... She pulled up the blanket around her waist anyways, settling in. It was easier to just stay put, even if she'd fucked up by passing out here. After that, hell if she was going to go walking back to her dorm by herself in the dark.

Crrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeak.

Evelyn stared into the screen for a few moments before her blood went cold.

That one wasn't part of the movie.

Holy shit it was dark in here. Anima glanced around as she walked into the lounge, the blue of her baby blue sweatshirt and her jeans barely visible in the dark room. She took notice of what was on the TV screen. Someone left a horror flick on? As much as Anima really, really wasn't too fond of horror movies, she was slightly interested. Anima walked around the side of the couch calmly. She went to sit down calmly. Then she jumped up in a way that was anything but calm as she bumped into Evelyn and practically jumped to the other side of the couch. What the fuck? Was someone there? She looked over and saw after a few moments. Oh. So there was someone there. Oops. Anima blushed, trying to wave towards her in a friendly manner.

The sound had come from inside the room. Someone was opening the door. She wanted to sit up and dash, but instead, she found herself trying her hardest to blend into the couch. Maybe it was the... wind? Air pressure and all that, uh, stuff... But that was just wishful thinking. She felt her heart rate rise. Someone was inside. She could hear the creak of footsteps as an indiscernible figure rounded the couch. Evelyn couldn't make out her face, but they were short, and—...

"Agh!"

She sat on her.

Evelyn pulled herself up closer to the side of the couch. Oh. Oh. Of course, it was her again... Bikini person. What was their name again? Anima?

And of course, she was mute.

That either made things much easier or much, much harder. Either way, this was an awkward interaction she'd been wanting to avoid.

"Hi..."

Sorry for sitting on you... I didn't see you there.

Smooth. Reeeaaaaal smooth. Anima held the notebook so that the light from the screen illuminated it. Seeing her for a few more seconds and hearing her voice allowed Anima to recognize she was looking at the girl from the pool. Evelyn, right? She was the one who came in here and decided to start watching a horror movie? Evelyn? Whatever, it wasn't who Anima expected but it didn't matter. Watching a movie, even a horror movie, seemed more appealing than returning to her dorm after taking several detours on the way there, the lounge being one such detour.

Could I maybe watch the movie with you, Evelyn?

Besides, even if Evelyn wasn't much braver than Anima herself, it'd still be a hell of a lot better than watching a horror movie herself. Fainting and needing a change of underwear didn't seem appealing, even if they were rather extreme outcomes.

No, of course not...

She figured that should've been the end of it, but of course, it couldn't be that easy. Watch the movie with her? Why? Evelyn shifted in place, pulling up the blanket, but finally managed a small nod. It wasn't like she could say no. Maybe it wouldn't be that bad... At least, with Anima here, it took a bit of the edge off, even if she made her almost as uneasy as the movie.

Looks like she had an excuse to hang around now. Anima smiled at Evelyn as she nodded. She moved over so she wasn't at the end of the sofa, but she still left space between her and Evelyn. If they were right next to each other it'd only be a matter of time before one would jump and end up hitting the other. Anima settled in and got comfortable, clutching her notebook and looking at the screen. Yep, this was definitely a horror movie all right.

Where the movie was, two people were running through a corn field, illuminated by the full moon. They held each other's hand. One of them, a 19-year-old girl with black hair, stopped suddenly.

"Gwen... do you think we lost him?"

This prompted the other person to turn, a 22-year-old woman who looked pretty similar. Sisters, perhaps?

"Of course we did, we'll be -"

A loud snap cut her words off as her neck was snapped from behind.

So there was no turning back from this, huh...? This was what she deserved for passing out in the lounge. It was either this, or getting found the next morning. Evelyn clutched the silver flask under her blanket and chewed on the inside of her cheek, doing her best to ignore the girl on the other side of the couch. Fuck. Which part of the movie was this? She must've missed at least almost a quarter of the movie so far, and while Anima had come in, the scene had transitioned to two of the main characters walking through a corn field.

SNAP. A grisly crack as two hands shot out and twisted the woman's neck mid-sentence. Evelyn jumped, flinching away as the girl dropped to the ground and the other sister dashed away, screaming. The camera swooped around and followed close behind her as she moved through the stalks of corn.

Killers had an impeccable sense of timing.

Anima had jumped up slightly. God damn it. No type of horror is more high quality than a jumpscate, clearly. Anima glanced over at Eve for a moment, before trying to suck it up and at least appaear unaffected by the movie, even if it was currently scaring the living shit out of her. She disliked horror movies for a reason, after all. Experiences like this were that reason.

The girl's panting could be heard as she began to grow tired from running through the corn field. She came to a clearing with a tractor, stopping and leaning on it to catch her breath. The camera suddenly shifted to imitate a first person view as she began to look around. She looked the way she came, away for a moment, and when she looked there again a bloody knife flew out from the corn stalks. The camera went back to how it was, showing the girl looking panicked while the knife was wedged in the tractor just a few inches from her head. So far the only thing super scary about this movie seemed to be the number of jumpscares. Although, almost as if to spite anyone thinking this, eerily ambiance grew audible.

Time and the movie went on until it came to a close. As end credits rolled, Anima began to write before looking over towards Evelyn. Do you want to maybe go get something to eat in Rosebury? The movie was plesant enough, why not do more stuff? Right? That could surely be enjoyable as well, right? Anima waited for a response, a shy smile on her face. Did this look friendly? Hopefully it did.

That was unpleasant.

Horror movies had never been her forte in the first place, but with Anima on the couch beside her, it was like there was a second monster inside the room with her to add on to the tension. She was staring forward, her eyes following the credits as they rolled down the screen, when she heard the scuff of a pencil against paper. Evelyn turned her head, narrowing her eyes to make out the words in the dim glow emanating from the screen.

Her voice was thick with grogginess as she fumbled for a response.

"It's a-almost th-three in the m-morning..." she muttered, shying backwards as much as she could without making it obvious, or without tumbling over the edge of the couch. All the stores closed hours ago. Unless she meant... some time else? But why? What the hell was all this pushiness for? Was she trying to be friendly?

Oh... oops. It was awfully late, wasn't it? Sorry, I kind of forgot how late it is. Maybe tomorrow? Why not try and be friendly? It didn't seem like she's the kind who'd snap at her or anything, so what could go wrong? That is, assuming that Evelyn didn't shoot the idea down here and now. Hopefully she wouldn't do that, though. Hopefully this would have a better effect than the other encounters Anima had with Evelyn as well. Hopefully. Anima waited for a response, opening her mouth in a silent yawn. It really was awfully late, wasn't it? How long was that movie?

She would've thought that would be enough. That was enough of an opening for her to slip away without making any sort of commitment. Well, no, she'd just hoped that would be enough. And that hope wasn't enough. Evelyn gave a wavery, uncertain smile. "Um... w-well... I-I don't know..." She wished she could've lied and said she was busy, but these days, she was almost never busy. "Um... maybe... I-I don't r-r-really have any m-m-money to eat out, t-though..."

So? Anima could afford to do that, albeit it barely. But who cared? She'd find a way to stay afloat money wise. That's okay. I can pay for all of it. I don't really mind. Would that be enough for Evelyn to agree. Maybe, maybe not. It'd certainly be preferrable that it'd be enough. What else could she do to try and convince her? Anima sat patiently while she waited for Evelyn to read from the notebook and answer. That smile Evelyn flashed; although uncertain, it was still better than nothing. Was some good starting to come of things?

Ehh... That turned it into her being treated, which was a favor, which meant she'd be in debt to someone she barely knew and barely liked. Why was she so persistent? Evelyn squirmed in place, but what other excuses could she think of? That was it, unless she wanted to flat out lie. "Um, I w-w-wouldn't want yo-you to... spend m-m-money on me..." she muttered, rubbing her arm. "M-maybe we could, th-though. One day."

That was noncommittal enough. If she was lucky, they'd separate here, Anima would leave happy, and then after a few days, she'd forget the memory and they'd never meet again. It wouldn't be the first time something like that had happened.

But that was if she was lucky.

And if anything, Evelyn wasn't lucky.
