[[Vienna Gogh, Start Game?

Game Loading...]]

The gas had made Vienna feel heavy. As if she were stuck on velcro overly attached to her clothing. Her eyelids are magnates, making it impossible to keep them open.

The roaring sun didn't do much to encourage them to stay open. As they remained closed to the circumstances the abstract mural of color. The forms moved around with lithe and listless movements.

Making herself roll over Vienna's face landed onto the bag. Grabbing it she held it. Because it wasn't a bag, but a pillow.

She opened an eye, because this was an idea for a poem.

She felt the sand covered ground, which was really a bed.

Sitting up she began to shake, because there was no bed, no idea, and no pillow. Just the bag and a cowboy hat.

Oh no. Please. This couldn't be happening, but here she was. Looking around and hoped not to see anyone that was on the train.

M21 - Elliot Day - START

Lots and lots of sky.

Elliot put a hand to his forehead, trying to sift through all the thoughts in his mind that were currently crashing against each other. Crashing like the waves of a sea as bright and perfectly blue as the sky. For the briefest of moments he wondered if he was in hospital, before remembering what a hospital ceiling usually looked like, and that wasn't like the sky. Tilting his head back a little, he saw a cactus. A cactus?! Suddenly scrambling into a sitting position, Elliot surveyed the landscape around him with a hot surprise.

It looked like the Southern United States. They had that accent. Quickly, everything was coming back to him. The train trip, the voice, what had he said his name was? Kill your friends. Kill my friends? He was surrounded on every side by a cactus, a small cove, and suddenly he felt trapped. It was the first time he had seen a full size cactus, and the spikes looked vastly more menacing than the one his Mom kept on the kitchen window. He felt damp sweat on the back of his neck, and he was quickly forming sweat patches under his arms. Why was it so hot? The slightly damp sand was shimmering in the sunlight.

Next to him was a bag. Ooh, a weapon! Sticking out the top of the bag was a wooden stick, apparently whatever he had been assigned was too big to fit in it. Or it was just a wooden stick, something Elliot considered. He unzipped the top of the bag curiously, pulling out the sledgehammer. He felt the weight of it in his hands, feeling nervous all of a sudden. For the first time the enormity of his situation dawned on him as he imagined cracking someone's skull open with it...

Elliot stood up, experimentally lifting the hammer over his head. It seemed to weigh a thousand tonnes in his hands, and his feeble arms struggled with the weight. Eyeing up the cacti that surrounded him, his mind began to wander. If you can bash one of those cacti open, then at least you know you can defend yourself... he reasoned, picking one that was roughly his height. He focussed on not imagining the cactus as a person, and with all of his pathetic might, swung the sledgehammer around to make contact with the prickly plant. As the centrifugal forces swung his body round as well Elliot let out a grunting noise in an unusually deep voice, the sort of noise he expected people weilding sledgehammers to make.

The cactus split, and he was covered in water that smelt like sap. It dripped from his fringe to his nose, and thenfrom his nose onto the front of his polo shirt, the bright blue darkening to navy. Elliot blinked a few times in surprise, his eyes stinging a little, as he tried to regain a sense of awareness of a world that wasn't entirely inhabited by cacti. As he looked into the space he had just vacated, he could see Vienna, a girl from his class, about twenty metres away. Cocking his head to one side, the sledgehammer suddenly got a lot heavier. Slowly, wearily, feeling like he'd done all the hitting things with sledgehammers he was ever going to want to do, Elliot picked a way precariously out of the ring of cacti, slipping between two that only just accomodated his slight form. He stowed the sledgehammer away in his rucksack, which he heaved on to his back. Vienna was out of sight now, but Elliot moved around until he could see her again. He walked warily towards her. She didn't look as though she was going to be killing anyone immediately, but Elliot found himself not wanting to take chances.

"Hey!" Elliot said, waving enthusiatically as he got near to her. Sweat mingled in with the sap, to create an interesting combination of salt and sweet on his upper lip.

Opening her eyes at the sound of sledge through cactus, Vienna turned to see a broken cacti. Holding the pack closer she cocked her head. It was probably broken before she woke up.

Also, this place was gorgeous. It was one of those places you'd see in a nature book, or in National Geographic. However, she was only able to admire it for a poof of seconds when someone called out to her.

Looking, Vienna saw it was Elliot Day. A nice boy from school, and he was also on the train.

Oh, God! This is really happening!

Giving a small wave with a side of smile Vienna stood up. She forgot about the hat and started walking, dragging the bag.

"Hey, Elliot." She noticed the heat's excessiveness, and than the dust on her cardigan when she went to remove it. Beating it off gently she giggled, but why? This wasn't funny, and it didn't make herself feel better.

Taking off the cardigan she stared at it awhile before saying,

"So this is, like, really happening?"

Now that he was close to her, Elliot could see the collar around Vienna's neck, and his hands went immediately to his own. It seemed to choke him instantly, even though he had previously been unaware of it, and he fought an incessant urge to tear it off. He put his fingers by his sides, and drummed them anxiously against his legs, trying to distract himself.

"I guess," Elliot said, looking around at the landscape. They weren't far from what looked like a body of water, which shimmered between the cacti. He ruffled his hands in his hair, which was looking unusually limp in the humidity. The air was syrupy, with an aroma that he didn't recognise but was almost overwhelming. He was far too hot. The pool looked very inviting all of a sudden, and he wanted to do nothing more than swim. Except that he couldn't very well take his sledgehammer into the water with him, and he was worried that if he left it by the side someone might steal it.

It wasn't that he was particularly attached to it, but he was worried what someone else might do with it. His eyes flickered over to the decapitated cactus that sat mournfully in his starting place. At least I'll be able to find it again I guess... Elliot scuffed his shoes in the sand.

"What do we do now?" he said nervously, throwing his arms wide. "I mean, I don't really want to kill anyone, but that seems like the point of game," inwardly he chastised himself for calling it a game. "Surely someone will come and find us, right?"

She nodded, with her hand still touching the collar lightly. Vienna had followed Elliot's movements up to the collar, but her fingers remained. Like chains on an anchor it kept this real. This was happening.

Oh my God, this was happening.

I hope Mama and Papa are alright. She thought, twirling some of her fringe with a finger. She hated making them worry in anyway.

"Yeah, someone will find us." Hopefully soon, Vienna hated to think about what her classmates would do under fear and threats of death. Then she remembered that Katie, Renee, and Mikey were on the same train. She had to find them, but where to start? Looking at Elliot she said,

"Maybe if we all get together, and show we won't kill each other they'll let us go?" It wasn't like they could do anything then, right? Still, what were the collars for? It bothered her, but she made her hand move away. Looking around she smiled and waited for his answer. Looking at Elliot's sledge hammer she remembered what the "Sheriff" said about a weapon, she looked in her bag to see what her's was.

After digging around Vienna found nothing, and then looked to the left and sighed. Stuffing the cardigan in it. She normally treated her clothes better than this, but this was different. Before she could think that they forgot her weapon she saw the hat. She giggled. From joke or else she didn't have a clue at first, then she realized it was she was harmless. People had less reason to be afraid of her.

Plus, it matched her outfit. It was black leather with a silver studded belt at the base of the crown. Walking over she pick it up, beat some of the dust off, and put it on her head.

"What do you think?" She asked, turning to Elliot. She wasn't going to participate in this game. She was going to show how unafraid she was.

Elliot chewed on the inside of his lip and looked around again. The air felt damp and still, and the only sounds were of insects and a small rodent scuffling through the Earth. So this is it. We have to kill each other now? He looked at Vienna, tried to imagine himself with his hands around her neck or smashing her face with the sledgehammer. Bits of her went everywhere, and Elliot felt his head begin to spin. He couldn't do it. No way could he do it.

"Yeah!" Elliot said with enthusiasm to her idea. Not killing people. Signs of solidarity. They were the sorts of things he liked. The kinds of morals he stood up for in this world. "We just need to survive for long enough until we get rescued." He watched her looking in her bag, and then pouncing on the cowboy hat that lay in the dust behind her.

As Vienna pulled on the hat, he grinned. This was the sort of thing he was used to, hanging out with friends, trying on stupid hats. Sometimes Elliot could see what other people meant when they mistook him for gay.

"You look awesome!" Elliot said enthusiastically, trying to pretend they were in a store rather than a dusty desert that may or may not have been full of people that wanted to kill them. "Really appropriate for the scenery!" He framed his fingers and thumbs around her as though sizing her up for a photograph. "Maybe people will think you're the Sheriff and stay out of our way!"

In jest, Vienna made her hands into a pistol and blew on the barrel as if she just shot it. Lets just hope there aren't any Eric Claptons in our class. Now, how do they go about saving their class? She pulled the piece of paper in the bag, which proved to be a map, and said while looking at it,

"So, where do we start?" The cabin was the closest place to here, but there may be better areas to goto. Still, she thought, this place feels safe.

"I like the cabin next to us." Vienna said, moving her thumb closest to to on the square. "What about you?" It'd be better if they could find the scared classmates first. They could do with some encouragement from Elliot and her. Plus, his enthusiasm had rubbed off on her. She'd been smiling for a while. Her cheeks started hurting from the hope.

Vienna's imagination started producing movies of freedom, comradeship, and reunions with her friends and family. They could do this. The Mad Sheriff wouldn't win this. Not with Elliot and her working in tandem.

((Really really sorry for taking ages to reply.))

Elliot crowded closer to Vienna, looking over her shoulder at the map. He'd only gotten as far as the sledgehammer when it came to looking through his bag, and the map was interesting. It gave a strange sort of finality to the whole thing, if someone had gone to the effort of producing a map then they must be serious. Elliot wasn't sure why it had taken this to convince him over the collar around his neck and the fact he had just smashed a cactus in with a sledgehammer. Vienna pointed out the cabin that was near to them, suggesting it as a possible place to go next.

"Works for me," Elliot said nodding. "Maybe, if there's no one there yet, or the people are friendly, we could barricade it up. Stop anyone who's actually trying to play this game from getting in, and just stay there until we're rescued?"

He knew he was being a little optimistic, but hope was all they had left really. Perhaps there would be some way to signal to the people back home where they were. He wasn't the most scientifically minded person in the world, but he was logical, and had read lots of books, so maybe he would be able to come up with something? He glanced up at the cornflower blue sky, wondering if any planes flew over. Perhaps they would be able to do something to signal to them, paint a huge SOS on the floor of the desert or something. Cogs turning, Elliot moved over to where he had dropped his bag, and began to search through it. He made a mental inventory of the items contained within. There seemed to be everything they would need to survive.

"There's not masses of food here..." Elliot said slowly. He didn't want to voice what came next. Clearly they're not expecting us to survive for very long... "Enough for a few days or so. We're probably going to have to source some ourselves..." Elliot considered the landscape. It was almost the exact opposite of what they had at home. There the dry deserts were replaced with lush forests. The tiny villages with metropolitan cities. He moved his map and found the jerky and spam hidden underneath, and his hopes were raised slightly. "Oh, no, actually it's not too bad." another pause as he thought of something pertinent. "You're not vegetarian are you?"

Frowning away from Elliot, Vienna wondered if this was his plan the whole time. Act as if he wanted to help her save the class, and then just hide until it went away. She understood the want to hide, but she was better than that. They were better than that. When her companion started talking about food Vienna shook her head.

"No, I'm not." She replied loosely. Italian cooking was nothing without meat. This would be taken care of later. But she needed Elliot to give herself credibility to her classmates. For her classmates. She could talk to him about that later, now she had a class to save.

Shouldering the pack Vienna turned her head halfway to Elliot and said,

"Lets look through out bags when we get to the cabin!" She made her voice excited, as if she had a surprise. She felt pressured to have Elliot stay with her.

Extracting the water bottle from his bag, Elliot took a sip of water, feeling the relief as the water, which was still relatively cool, slipped down his throat. The heat was unbearable - there was a reason he preferred to stay indoors most of the time. Screwing the cap contemplatively back on the bottle, Elliot scanned the landscape again. Nothing had changed. He was glad Vienna wasn't a vegetarian. That was definitely not going to help with their survival tactics if they had to go looking for berries twice a day.

"Huh?" Elliot said as Vienna said something about emptying their bags when they got to the cabin. He put the water bottle back into his own and zipped it up dutifully before he looked over at her, noting the excited look on her face. He grinned. "Why? Have you got something hidden in there or something?" Immediately his mind started to wander as he imagined extra food supplies and traps and rope and all the things they could possibly need to survive in the desert. Maybe she had one of those things for getting water out of trees? A spool or a spile or something.

"Is it chocolate?" Elliot said hopefully. "I heard that someone's military developed chocolate that doesn't melt in the sun. Now that's what we need here! Elliot stood up and swung the rucksack onto his back. The blue of his polo shirt was darkened with sweat, and his jeans were sticking to him. It was annoying. I was dressed properly for inside! The rucksack dug in at his prominent collar bones and Elliot put his left hand between the strap and his shirt to try and alleviate the annoyance. In his right hand he held the map, wonkily, and turned it upside down and around trying to figure out the way the direction the compass, which he was also trying to hold in his right hand, was pointing.

Eventually he got the pin of the compass to line up with north and oriented his map accordingly. Releasing the left hand, he pointed in the direction he thought the cabin might be.

"I think it's that way," Elliot said, with little confidence. He started to walk in that direction. "Correct me if I'm wrong!"

((Elliot Day continued elsewhere))

Vienna cocked her head when Elliot got so excited about chocolate.

Are all boys like dogs?

Then she got an image of Elliot in dog form chasing his own tail. Fixing her hat she watched Elliot work the compass, and guess a direction. Telling her to correct him if he was wring. Vienna know less of oratory than him, probably, so she just smiled and followed him.

"I think I'll just follow you."
