The rock descends, cupped in your hand, until it collides with the man's face. Again. And again. Blood sprays, much landing on you, but you don't stop.
By the time you stop, a bloody crater is all that stares up at you.
You've just killed another man.
"That's something you are going to have to get used to, and I'm sorry, but you will likely have to do it again."
"Shut the fuck up... Just... Just shut up." You let the rock fall from you grasp, your shaking grasp, as you sit down hard on the fossilized coral.
With trembling fingers you light up a smoke, averting your gaze from the body.
"We need to get out of here." Kiara says softly after a minute.
Doing your best not to think about it, you grab the body and drag it into the sea. Swimming out, you figure you've gone far enough, and the man's vest, now weighted with rocks, sinks him.
Around here, the sharks will get to him before anything else does. They generally don't leave much behind. Your father taught you that. He taught you a lot of things. Like how fast a car sinks when it sails into the ocean at 70mph off of a dirt road.
Washing yourself off as best you can, you clean up the scene of the grisly murder, tossing the rock as far out as you can manage.
The trek back to your car feels like it takes forever.
"I'm sorry." Kiera says softly.
"Don't talk to me for a while." You turn the key, and fire up the engine.
