Odile kept her hands in the same state as she mercilessly stared Red down while he walked off.Red froze the moment he felt the presence of another by his side - he didn't need to look to know who it was. Slowly, he raised his hands in the air, doing his best to remain calm and hoping dearly that his additional arms wouldn't try anything.
"Alright," he said, slowly and tonelessly. "I'll back off."
With very slow and clear motions, he got back up and walked backwards, no intention to stop before he knew the danger was over.

Odette was thankful she didn't hit the ground that hard, and that was all thanks to Selene. She'd fallen easily into the other girl's arms, and her head immediately fell back against her shoulder.The serial killer had realized what was going on before Selene had. In a moment, he had both attacked and been stopped.
Selene realized Odette was going to pass out. That's what he had been trying to take advantage of.
Odette was about to pass out. Standing up. With Odile distracted.
Selene reached out to catch her. The effects of the potion Selene was under made her feel so warm. Selene moved the blanket that was still on her shoulders so that it covered Odette. That way, the serial killer couldn't get at the ball. That was the only reason. It was only logical to do so, given he'd displayed intent to steal the ball.
"Fucking...you're not slick," she shouted in a slurred voice. She started laughing viciously, sounding almost drunk. "The alleged predator becomes prey, to the other fucking predator in the room."
She slumped further into Selene's body, pulling the blanket further over her own. "Fuck around and find out," she grumbled angrily. She then yawned again. "That's what happens."

Her eyes were still locked on Red.
Odette dazedly shook her head. "Not now...I need to stay...awake."
She then craned her head to look up at Selene. "Sorry if my fat ass crushes you to death. But thank you for not letting me crash."
