We’re getting official reports from the scene of whatever happened last night. April, Barbarossa, Null, and Larry have all been confirmed dead. We also found the bodies of Jenny, Ryan, and Dumas. Confirming that Dumas was dead… this is the reason I try so hard to avoid getting attached to most proxies. Knowing he’s gone is bad enough, but when I was given the forms to fill out for his death, I… I broke down. Why did he have to die? He was just here, living with us, joking around and making this horrible apartment seem so much more livable….
The four survivors from the kill team are still staying here. Ahriman’s been chewing out Manton for failing to kill Silent Bob, but Manton has been adamant in defending his decision to retreat. He echoed a lot of what Gabriel said when he told me about their encounter with Silent Bob.
Ahriman: “There were eight of you! This is what you’re trained to do! How could you screw this up?”
Manton: “Sir, we’re trained to kill starved Runners who are half paralyzed with fear. Even when we do encounter braver ones who manage to arm themselves, they’re still not real fighters. This man was something else. The way he fought at first was bad enough, but after he saw the Slender Man… he’s a killer. An experienced, true killer. It’s been a long time since we’ve had to deal with anyone who’s shown near the skill he did last night.”
We’ve got people out trying to figure out where Silent Bob went, but I’m still nervous. I mean, Jesus, if Kenny’s posts are accurate, he managed to wipe out half a kill team without getting a single scratch on him. If someone like that is on the loose in this city…. I think I’ll be sleeping even less soundly that usual until he’s dealt with.
