Title: 9 Crimes
Rated: R for language, violence, adult content
Disclaimer: Not mine. Please don’t sue. Title comes from “9 Crimes” by Damien Rice. I also don’t own that.
Author’s Note: This bunny woke me up demanding to be written. It explores some of the dark thematic issues Jericho hinted at but never really explored.
Spoilers: Up through and including Black Jack. Everything after that is AU.
Dawn had come too soon and yet not nearly soon enough. Her hands, now a crimson color, trembled violently as she backed away, out into the cold night air, drawing in a shuddering breath.
She stared with wide eyes at the scene inside, like something from a nightmare. One that would loop endlessly through her mind for years to come.
The sound of dogs barking in the distance startled her into action. She didn't have much time.
Uttering a prayer to a God she wasn't sure she even still believed in, she turned and fled.
She didn't look back.
