She bends down to grab a handful of dirty snow from alleyway's pavement, wiping the flat of the blade against it and tossing the now-bloodied snow away. That'll do for now. "I told you bad things would happen if you lied to me. Remember?"

"Uh huh." God, she's tired, feels like she could sleep for a million years. There'll be so much to do when she gets home, though, scrubbing dark red stains out of her own clothes too much work. Just thinking about it makes her sleepy. She needs to start falling in love with boys that require less work. "See you."

"Whatever. See you around." She's going to go sleep. Cleaning can wait.
