(OOC: Sorry for what's basically a big parroted mess, but it's really hard to cut in actions with so many posts in front of you...)
After Marion suggested going outside, she glanced at Jake. It was obvious that he was quite nervous, and his gun hand began to sweat. Marion only knew that it could become a really bad situation right then and there, before Jake said, "Your call, Mad."
At this, Marion nodded. She didn't exactly want Jake to be making the decision, since it was obvious enough that he was unsettled, so she was quite happy with Mad making the decision.
Then, however, Mikaela came down the stairs, and Marion could notice that she looked quite happy to see Jake and her, and couldn't help but think that at least one person was happy.
Mikaela then began to rush forward, as if to hug them, before she suddenly stopped, noticing everyone's nervous demeanor, and asked quietly, "Hey guys, everything okay down here?"
She was about to explain when Jake answered, "There are people talking outside, I don't know who they are but one of them seems to be on Marion's team. Marion is thinking about going out there. Thoughts?"
Marion only nodded in reply, as Jake had pretty much covered all of the important points. She was rather relieved that he didn't say anything adamantly in opposition of her plan too, it was a good sign.
Suddenly, however, Mad then announced, "I think we're good," which left Marion a bit confused since the situation was most certainly not good by any definition of the word. Still, Mad continued, after closing the curtain, "They're leaving right now. They must be from that Detroit school."
Feeling relieved, Marion again nodded, and couldn't help but think about how easily the situation was solved. Then again, overconfidence like that was most certainly not a good thing and she admonished herself to not become so.
Mad then asked to no one in particular, "So, where were we?" Marion was about to reply with, "We were about to eat lunch and make plans," when Mad then continued, "I like the idea of breaking for lunch and planing out the hell we're gonna do."
She then looked around, seemingly for a place to eat, and she then continued, "We should probably have someone keep watch. Maybe a rotation?"
In reply, Marion said agreeably, "That's reasonable, and I can take the first shift if you want. Anyways, how about that spot over there?" She then pointed at a clean and comfortable looking spot with enough space for everyone, and said, "I think there's enough space there for all of us."
