(M01: Kyle Williams - Awaken)

D4

Kyle awoke to absolute silence. He wasn't entirely sure how long he had been out. It must now have been long, given the brightness of the day. But he could never be truly sure.

So here he was, in the Program. He felt sorry for the ones who didn't make it here. He didn't so much feel sorry for himself. How could he? It was all too early to start thinking about all that.

He rolled over to his and picked himself up. First thing he did was to check his pack for his assigned weapon. It was a Taser. That was good. There was little chance of being able to kill anybody with it, and he could defend himself.

He surveyed his surroundings. Kyle was straight in the middle of a bunch of cabins. Some sort of lodging for the people that had once used this location no doubt. That was also good. He had shelter.

He looked for the cameras, most were well hidden enough that he had no idea where they were or how many there were. But a few were just visible enough that the alert mind could spot them. He approached the closest one he saw.

"My name is Kyle Williams. Regardless of what you might hear, I am and always will be a Patriot. More than likely, I will not survive the coming days. But I want you all to know I'll try my hardest to live. Mother, Father, goodbye."

Kyle took his weapon, slung his daypack over his shoulder, and headed into the nearest shelter.

A true patriot wouldn't take part in this program. They would just live as long as they could. He intended to be a true patriot.

F05: Josephine Luu - Start

Josie awakened on the hard wood floor in an unfamiliar room. She looked around groggily, trying to remember where she was. Absentmindedly, she brushed her hand against her neck. At the touch of the cold metal, the memory of the previous day hit like a thunderbolt.

No.

She sat bolt upright, looking around frantically.

No, No, No, No, No!

Her eyes settled on the object next to her, wiping away the last vestiges of her denial. She stared blankly at the duffel bag for a few moments, focusing on the stenciled image of an eagle beside the designation, F05. After a few moments of stunned silence, she noticed an object underneath the bag. She moved it over, revealing her weapon, a fire axe.

"Shit."

This was it. She was going to die. This was probably the government's plan, wasn't it? Clean away the undesirables by giving them weapons that they couldn't use, while the good, patriotic, full-blooded Americans got machine guns or something. Josie's vision began to swim as bile rose in her throat.

Why me? Why? I don't want to die! It's not fair!

She pulled her knees up to her chest, shuddering as thoughts of her impending death swirled around within her head. Suddenly, she heard a noise coming from outside through the open window. Josie rose to her feet in a panic.

It was a boy's voice, and he was talking about how he was a...patriot?

Crap.

Great. Just her luck to wake up near one of those people. She recognized the voice as one of the guys that used to harass her a few years ago. She couldn't remember his name, but even so, she could tell that he was bad news. He wasn't one of the major bullies, but anyone who joined in on their taunting likely wouldn't be too kind to people like her in The Program.

She bent over, picking up her bag and put it over her shoulder. She would have to actually look through it later. After a moment of hesitation, she picked up the fire axe as well, taking a few experimental swings with it. It was surprisingly heavy, taking quite a bit of effort for her to swing with both hands. She sighed in desperation as she realized that she likely wouldn't be able to swing hard enough to really cut anything with the blade. She left the upstairs room and walked down the stairs, trying to think of a way to effectively use the axe. The pointed back end was probably her best bet, since the force would be focused on one point, instead of being spread out through the blade. Not that it would be much help against a gun though...

As she headed down the stairs, she heard the door to the cabin open. Josie froze, crouching down to avoid being seen. After a few tense moments of hiding, she rose and continued down the stairs, the bottom of which thankfully couldn't be seen from the door.

I guess I'd better get this over with...

Hefting the axe in an attempt to seem less vulnerable, she turned the corner and took a few steps toward the boy. She suppressed an urge to snicker at him as she looked over at his clothes. Who wears a t-shirt in this weather? What's the point of wearing glasses without lenses? The tension she felt began to ease as she regarded his non-threatening figure. She couldn't see a weapon on him, but she wasn't prepared to let her guard down just yet. She adjusted the shoulder strap of her bag and then looked back up at the boy. If he actually had a gun, she could just run back up the stairs and try to take him by surprise there, anyway. She decided to try to get more information before trying anything foolish. Trying to hide her anxiety, she called out to the boy in front of her.

"Hey, patriot. What's in that bag?"

Just like everyone else at Patriot High, Carlyle Shotton was nervous about the upcoming Announcement Day. Unlike most, if not all, however, that was the only emotion Carlyle was feeling, and on a scale of literally shaking with fear to being serene and calm as a saint, he was definitely towards the latter end. He’d already been through several announcement days, and neither Patriot High nor his class had been chosen for a single one. Probability suggested that this one would follow the same route.

So Carlyle calmly made his way into school, still slightly nervous, but only deep down. He took up his position with the rest of the students and teachers, hands in his hoody pockets, trying not to look too bored. It was the same old speech pretty much each time, with no dramatic twist that spelt doom for Patriot High’s students. As The General’s head appeared on the screen, a small smile appeared on Carlyle’s face. Time for everyone here to breathe a sigh of relief, yet again.

Suddenly, the screen flickered, and blinked out. Carlyle’s eyes widened a fraction, and he looked around to see whether anything had happened. No-one seemed to have noticed anything, however. Then, just as suddenly as before, the entire world blinked out, leaving Carlyle in darkness for a second. Then the scene of Announcement Day was instantly replaced with a view of a slate grey sky, as Carlyle Shotton awoke in a small town in an alpine valley.



M04: Carlyle Shotton-Start

Carlyle rubbed his eyes as he slowly levered himself up into a sitting position. He vaguely remembered his previous thoughts repeating over and over in his head as he had been unconscious. It would just get to when The General was about to speak, when suddenly the whole thing would start over again, and he would be forced to listen to his own thoughts, about how there was no chance he would be picked.

Carlyle rarely swore, but he felt that this occasion deserved a good, hearty “Shit!” Which was exactly what he proceeded to do. Carlyle felt slightly better after that, and turned his attention instead to the location he’d been placed in. It could almost be classified as a town, with small wooden buildings that looked like a strong enough breeze could knock them over. On the bright side, though, they would be able to provide adequate shelter, if Carlyle found himself needing that soon.

“Also on the bright side,” Carlyle muttered to himself, a smile on his face despite the situation. “Least now I’m famous all across America. Gettin’ my fifteen minutes of fame here, folks!”

It was rather macabre humour, true, which was not Carlyle’s thing at all most of the time, but desperate times called for desperate measures. Carlyle wanted to stay himself, no matter what happened. He didn’t want to slowly change into some unrecognisable person. If he could just stay calm and cheerful enough so he didn’t seem overbearing, he would be fine. How hard could it be, in a game designed around the murder of your classmates?

Carlyle also knew what his next plan was as well. He wanted, needed even, to find people. Friends preferably, Louisa, Chris, Brigid, all those guys. He wanted to make sure they were alright in particular. But he also wanted to find people that might not particularly have liked him back in Patriot High. No matter how bad people had seemed at school, not a single one deserved to have been put in this thing.

So basically, find people, any people, stay cool, don’t die. Awesome. Sounds simple enough.

Carlyle got himself to his feet rather groggily, still a little out of it due to the gas and the whole surreal nature of The Program. Before he could do any of his plans, however, he needed something to protect himself. Carlyle thought he could potentially climb or outmuscle a number of his classmates if the need be. Not, however, if they were holding a gun or a sword or a nuclear warhead. Or, y’know. Something along those lines.

Carlyle kneeled down again to search through his bag, and after a moment, stood up, softly whistling appreciatively. He was clutching a gun in his hands. Carlyle was not an expert in guns or anything, but he was fairly certain this was a rifle. It was fairly long, wooden and heavier than Carlyle had expected. It could be a key factor in how far and how well he progressed in the Program, and something he needed to take severe caution around.

“Neato” Carlyle murmured. After all, when do you get a chance to hold a real, functioning gun in your hands?

Carlyle knew that it was never to be used to attack people, though. Not whilst he still kept a hold of it. It would only be fired in self defence, and even then, only as a last resort. So now he had to add “remain peaceful throughout” to his list of plans. Fine by him.

Carlyle hoisted the rifle over his shoulder, and started walking in a direction that looked vaguely promising. Which meant that the sky looked slightly clearer and less grey in that direction. Only a few seconds after he started walking, however, Carlyle suddenly heard a voice from a nearby cabin. He swiftly turned his head to look in the direction the voice had come from.

Unintentionally, Carlyle’s finger was curled around the trigger of the rifle. The slight shock that came from the sudden voice not only caused his head to turn, but also his finger to jerk backwards, pulling the trigger. Turned out that the nice people running The Program had not only placed lead shot in the gun already, they'd also added powder to the flashpan and set the flint to full-cock. There was a deafening blast, as the rifle fired backwards. Carlyle stood, shell shocked for a moment, before uttering a single solitary word.

“Whoops...”

Before he could scope out the area and make sure it was safe Kyle was met with another program participant. A girl, and by the look of her, a foreign-descent girl. Not really strong features. But not really all that true american looking either. Probably chinese ancestry or something. She asked what was in his bag, and she was holding a fire axe.

"Supplies, same as yours." He showed the Taser to her. "And this is my weapon."

He studied her for a bit, watching her for sudden movement.

"So how is this all going to go-."

And before he finished that sentence there was a gunshot.

He immediately ducked down, entered inside and pinned his back to the wall.

"Get down, watch the window, I've got the door."

Just his luck, someone who didn't understand patriotism at all.

A taser. Huh. Not the best of draws, but still pretty useful. One zap to somebody with a bad heart or something and they'd be a goner. Everyone said that they were supposed to be nonlethal, but in this game, even an incapacitation could be lethal. Josie took a few steps backwards, hoping the patriot wasn't crazy enough to lunge at her.

Surprisingly, he started to ask her about what was going to happen next. Josie was flabbergasted. This was The Program. Wouldn't he, of all people, know how this was supposed to go down? Maybe he should ask his beloved General what he should be doing...

Josie was just about to open her mouth to interrupt him when she was startled by the noise of a gunshot coming from outside.

Shit!

Her head turned involuntarily toward the window, frozen in place for a few seconds. After getting her bearings, she turned back to face the patriot. The boy ran in through the door and immediately pinned himself against the wall. Josie scrambled backwards, startled by the sudden movement. Before she could get far, however, the boy turned to her and told her to watch the window.

What? Who did he think he was by trying to give her orders? Like hell she was going to turn her back to him!

...

Still, it couldn't hurt to be able to see who the gun-wielder was. She crouched down, inching towards the window, keeping a close eye on the boy as she moved. Once she was on the other side of the window from him, she took a glance out through the opening.

Josie felt a small sense of relief to see Carlyle Shotton outside. While she didn't know him too well, the few interactions that they had had were pretty pleasant. He seemed to be a pretty funny guy, well he had liked her jokes at-

Josie's thoughts came to a sudden stop as she noticed the huge rifle in Carlyle's hands. She swallowed nervously as she ducked down underneath the window, looking toward the patriot again. Things were not looking good. Thankfully, anyone coming through that door would have to deal with him first. Hopefully, any sort of altercation between the two boys would give her time to run and think of a plan. She held her breath, nervously staring at the other boy as she waited for somebody to make their move.

Carlyle cautiously looked around him, checking to make sure that no-one was rushing out to investigate the noise, or in the worst case scenario, whether anyone had been behind him at the time. Thankfully, it seemed as though the streets had been deserted at the time. In fact, the only thing that had truly happened was that a window behind Carlyle had been completely obliterated, which, in the grand scheme of things, was probably not the worst thing that could have happened.

Carlyle breathed a sigh of relief, before examining the gun closer, swinging it down from his shoulder and holding it in both arms. It... didn’t exactly give him any more clues as to what exactly had just happened. There was a trigger, as with most guns. Carlyle mentally reminded himself not to idly keep his finger there. There was also some sort of trigger-like mechanism on top, which he guessed also had some significance. The... rotaty bit had been rotated pretty far back as far as Carlyle could remember. So, as long as he made sure that part stayed in the position it was at now, everything would be okay.

Carlyle moved the rifle to just his right hand, and slightly adjusted the straps of his bag. He had the odd feeling that he was missing something, here. Turning back to look in the direction he’d been facing when the rifle had gone off, Carlyle suddenly remembered what it was. There’d been someone in the building in front of him, maybe more than one. And that meant potential friends and potential allies.

Carlyle started trudging towards the cabin, when he came to an abrupt halt. This was most definitely not a good idea right now. He had just fired a gun, after all. Unintentionally, but it had happened. He didn’t know just how much the people in the cabin had seen of him; they might have had no idea everything had just been an accident. Carlyle lowered the rifle so the barrel was pointing at the ground, before calling out to the people inside the building.

“Hey, yo, people! Sorry, sorry about all that! Accident, y’know, just one of those things. I swear I’m not looking to harm anybody!” A pause, as Carlyle considered what best to say next. He swiftly decided that there would be no harm in trying to be peaceful and forge an alliance.

“Could we put this little incident aside, maybe? Lemme join with you? Could you, like... give a sign to show whether you’re cool with that or not?”

There was silence for a bit, and the very air seemed to be heavy with anticipation. Kyle considered moving closer to his temporary ally, but decided against it. Guarding the door was more important than seeing where the shot came from.

That was when he heard the voice of the shooter call out, claiming it was an accident. Although it was against his better judgement to believe him, Kyle was inclined to do so. Civilians weren't exactly supposed to learn how to handle weaponry after all.

But safety first. "Okay then, I believe you. But do us a favor will you? Throw the weapon down, I'll come out and do the same."

He turned toward the girl. "If he shoots me, run like hell." He wasn't sure why he felt the need to say that. Surely she would know to do that. And it didn't scream super patriotic to treat the minorities like equals. But all that didn't matter so much now. Survival did.

So why was he going to risk his life on this again? No answer came to mind. He just got up, and walked out the door. He dropped the taser on the ground in front of him. The boy with the gun was standing in the street not that far from the cabin.

"One patriot to another, I wouldn't use that thing for anything other than self-defense. This isn't a war." Kyle kept a calm look on his face, but inside his heart was beating at a hundred times a second.

He might die at this very moment.

"If you're serious about that team-up, I have no problem with that."

((Louisa Bloom continued from Miles to Go Before I Sleep))

Louisa didn't really have any idea where she was going. After getting shot by Clara, she just ran blindly into the forest. She had no clue if Clara was following her, so she continued to change her direction and run in strange patterns. Louisa was pretty certain she was lost at this point.

She finally came to a stop and leaned against a tree. Her throat was dry from all the panting. She looked at her arm. It looked like the bullet only grazed her arm, but it still hurt. Her coat sleeve was now covered in blood. Louisa knew she had to treat the wound or else it could get infected.

Okay, gotta treat it. So, disinfect the wound, then wrap bandages around it. Right, that should do it.

Louisa removed the jacket and looked at the wound. She gasped as she saw the wound. The bullet took a small chunk out of her arm. She felt weak looking at it.

"Come on, you've got to just fix it."

Louisa kneeled on the ground and opened her bag, removing the first aid kit. She opened it up and began to search through the kit, removing the contents she needed. She spent the next few minutes patching the wound, trying to make as little noise as possible.

I wasn't able to reason with Clara. She probably would have killed me regardless.

Louisa sighed.

"What am I going to do?"

Louisa finished wrapping the bandage around the wound and began to put the kit away. She zipped her bag up and picked the gun up.

Well, I better keep going. It's not like it's going to be any easier.

Louisa began to walk through the forest. She noticed a clearing in the trees, so she began to move towards it. She soon realized that she was on the edge of some small little buildings.

Huh. Well, this is pretty nice.

Louisa made her way towards the buildings, keeping her gun by her side. She didn't like the idea of being prepared to shoot someone, nor did she like the idea that people would assume she was playing.

Let's just find a place to relax for a bit. Get your bearings. Figure out a plan.

Louisa stepped down a dirt covered path when she saw some people standing in the street. Immediately, a smile appeared on her face.

"Carlyle!"

Carlyle Shotton. He was a really chill guy, one who was fun to discuss writing and cycling with. He had to be someone who was still not playing the game.

Louisa looked at the other guy Carlyle was talking to. She knew his was named Kyle, but not much else. He was a loner type, and although she was certain she had seen him pick on some minority classmates, she didn't really feel that bad about him.

Still, Carlyle and Kyle weren't fighting, so Louisa figured it would be best to approach them. She began to walk over, keeping her Beretta to her side.

"Carlyle! It's Louisa! How's it going?"

Louisa grinned. It was nice to see someone she felt comfortable around.

((I'm really sorry for the lateness of this post. I promise to be more prompt in the future...))

Josie pressed herself tightly against the wall, her chest tight with fear as waited. She turned to the patriot, hoping that he wouldn't take this chance to attack her. They stood there for what seemed like ages, when she finally heard a noise from outside.

“Hey, yo, people! Sorry, sorry about all that! Accident, y’know, just one of those things. I swear I’m not looking to harm anybody!”

An accident? How the hell does one fire a rifle by accident! Her whole body tensed as she contemplated the stupidity of the excuse. Even if he hadn't meant to fire at that exact second, he still must've been ready to hurt someone, seeing as his finger was on the rifle's trigger.

“Could we put this little incident aside, maybe? Lemme join with you? Could you, like... give a sign to show whether you’re cool with that or not?”

Absolutely not. Although Carlyle seemed to be a nice guy in class, there was no way it could be safe around someone that trigger-happy. Josie began looking over possible places to run or hide when she was interrupted by a noise coming from beside her. Patriot-boy was actually disarming himself! Josie supressed the urge to slap her hand to her face when the boy turned to her.

"If he shoots me, run like hell."

Well, of course. What did he expect her to do, stay and get shot? She watched him leave, adjusting the strap on her bag. She didn't want it to fall off in case she had to run. The whole situation felt strangely surreal, as if it were just a movie that she was watching. Crouching slightly, took a quick glance out of the window. She was just about to turn away when she heard another voice.

"Carlyle!"

Just great. Another person who seemed to be on Carlyle's side. She didn't know Louisa too well, but she knew she and Carlyle seemed to be pretty good friends. Josie sighed. She had no chance to escape from both of them, even if Kyle attempted to try something heroic. She stood up, lowering her axe while keeping her other arm in the air. She called out to them as she exited the building.

"Alright, alright, don't shoot. I'm coming out."

Once she reached the outside, Josie stood, blinking at the light of the sun rising over the horizon, hoping it wouldn't be the last one that she would ever see.

A relieved smile appeared on Carlyle’s face as someone responded from the house. They were still in a talking mood, thankfully, even after hearing a gunshot. Carlyle didn’t recognise the voice; it was male, and that was all he knew. Not that it mattered right now too much. Anyone willing to team up and stay friendly was good in Carlyle’s book.

The voice asked Carlyle to throw his weapon down before he would come outside. Carlyle hesitated for a few seconds at this request. The gun was his only means of self defence, after all, and who knew who else was hiding somewhere around this area? Plus, there was no telling if the voice had a weapon with him or not, and if so, whether he actually would drop it. After a short pause, however, Carlyle relented. He carefully placed the rifle on the ground, making sure the barrel faced away from the house. He was going to be constantly wary about the weapon from now on; he didn’t know how guns worked, really, and he wasn’t sure if some freak accident could cause it to fire again.

Carlyle had placed the rifle right next to his feet, as close to him as possible without actually holding it. If he saw anything suspicious, anything at all, the gun would be right there, ready to pick up. Hopefully, he wouldn’t have to do that.

After a few seconds, the presumed owner of the voice exited the house. Carlyle knew almost nothing about him, aside from the fact that his name was either Kyle or Karl, and he was one of the super patriotic sorts. It could have been a lot worse. Carlyle couldn’t think of anything off the top of his head, but there were definitely plenty of ways the encounter could be made worse. Plus, Kyle... Karl... Kyarle had placed a small box on the ground, which Carlyle guessed was his weapon. That made things a lot easier, then. Kyarle mentioned something about using the rifle for self defence only, then gave the offer of a team up. Carlyle idly ran his hand through his hair as he responded.

“Don’t worry ‘bout that. I wasn’t planning on firing this thing at all. It just sorta... happened, y’know? Like I said, accident, and one I’m super sorry about. We’re cool about it, right? But, like, I’m still keepin’ it with me, just in case. Aside from that, I-“

Carlyle was interrupted in his ramble by the sound of someone calling out his name. Craning his neck round to see who it was, his relieved smile broke into a full on grin, as he saw Louisa Bloom approaching. Louisa was super cool, being a fan of cycling and writing like him, plus she was just an all around nice person. Carlyle turned in her direction and waved at her, before looking back at Kyarle.

“I’m totally down for an alliance, man. You, me, Louisa, we’re set! And, hey, is there anyone else in that house with you?” As if on cue, Carlyle’s question was answered for him, as another familiar face in Josie Luu appeared, holding a weighty looking axe. Josie was pretty cool and funny too boot, and Carlyle waved at her arrival as well, before turning back to Louisa, greeting her.

“Yo, Louisa! Everything’s good here, I think. Little misunderstanding, nothin’ more. You oka-Woah, jeez, uh... that’d be a no, then...” Carlyle noticed the bandage round Louisa’s arm halfway through his sentence, and his expression instantly changed to one of concern. Louisa definitely hadn’t had that on during the announcement at school, so it must have happened after she’d woken up.

“Louisa, man, what happened? With your arm, I mean?” Carlyle asked, a concerned tone in his normally even voice.

Thankfully, Kyle wasn't gunned down immediately after stepping out. It seemed that the shooter, who he now recognized, was reasonable after all. Carlyle explained it was all an accident and that he hadn't intended to shoot. That put Kyle a bit more at ease, and he was about to reply when another voice called out.

He turned to face the newcomer and was put even more at ease when he saw Louisa Bloom. Neither of the two people were people he would consider to be anything less than a patriot like himself. The asian girl, Josie if his memory was correct, was likewise stable so far. A real credit to the minorities, in his opinion, if she kept her head about her.

Carlyle asked if anyone else was with Kyle and before he could respond, Josie stepped out. Almost as if on cue. He took off his lensless glasses. It was about time to get serious. Louisa had come in from another direction and as Carlyle just pointed out, she was injured. The gun in her hand was also a concern.

Kyle sighed. "I'm sorry but we don't really have time for stories. I'm assuming everyone here is okay with an alliance?" He looked at the others for a bit before continuing, "If that's the case then I suggest we do what teams do and reach a consensus on where we go next. Judging from Louisa's injury, others are already cracking under pressure. And I wouldn't assume that someone hasn't followed you here. For now we have to assume the worst."

He put his pack on the ground, opened it up and took out his map. "Before we get to the pleasantries, we need to move. This area has too many entry points to reasonably defend, even with both your guns. We need to move to a more secure location. If need be we can see if we can treat your wound better once we find such a place." He looked up at the others.

"Thoughts? Comments?" Someone had to lead this group. Kyle was just taking charge, though if a better leader stepped up he would step aside.

He sincerely doubted that anyone here would be a better leader though.

Louisa grinned as she approached the group. She kept the Beretta to her side to show that she wasn't going to use it. The last thing she needed was Carlyle or Kyle picking up their weapon and shooting her. She needed some friends, and there was no way she was going to let them think she was anything otherwise.

As she got closer, she saw another person exit the house. Josie Luu. Louisa didn't know her that well, but from what she knew, Josie was a pretty mild girl with interests in puzzles and such. Still, it looked like a good group of students had gathered, so Louisa was happy to find some pleasant company.

That's when Carlyle noticed the bandages around Louisa's arm. She quickly looked at the bandages. She could see the bandage color was beginning to change. Presumably, it meant that she would need to change it soon.

They deserve to know what happened. We all need to be careful.

Louisa was about to explain when Kyle spoke up. He explained that the town was hard to defend, and thought that the four of them should move out before they were surprised by anyone else. Louisa bit her lip.

Yeah, just like Clara....

Still, Louisa liked that Kyle expressed concern about her injury. It let her know that he was willing to care about others. He'd make a good ally in this game. Kyle asked for any thoughts or comments on his idea to move out.

"I'm fine with that," Louisa said, pointing to the bandages on her arm. "Not paying attention to my surroundings is what allowed Clara Fox to shoot me when she tried to mug me. We got to be careful around her.........and Maxim."

Louisa looked down at her feet and frowned. Clara and Maxim were hurting people. She didn't want to see anyone die. She wasn't sure where the four of them should go, but anywhere that would keep them relatively safe had to be preferred to the alternative. They just had to be careful.

Josie sighed with relief as she saw Carlyle's rifle on the ground. It seemed that she would get to live a little longer. Carlyle didn't seem to be the kind of person to willingly go along with The Program. The others, on the other hand...

Frowning, Josie examined the newcomer, who hadn't yet disarmed herself. She was holding her gun to her side, but it was still in her hand. Josie's gaze wandered up Louisa's arm, noticing the bloodstained bandage. She was just about to say something when Carlyle brought it up. Before Josie could speak, Kyle stepped into the centre of the group.

"Before we get to the pleasantries, we need to move."

Josie began to grow indignant at the thought of following Kyle's orders. Who died and made him the leader? Anyway, there still could be useful supplies inside the buildings in the town. 

Josie's planning came to abrupt halt after Louisa spoke. She looked around uneasily. After all, this Clara person could still be nearby. And Maxim... Josie didn't know him too well, but she remembered that he was pretty good friends with Louisa. If he attacked his own best friend, then who knew what he'd do to someone who he didn't know well? After a few moments of speaking, Josie spoke up.

"Yeah, I agree with patriot. It probably isn't very safe here."

With that, Josie turned and began walking in a random direction, hoping that the others would follow without shooting her in the back.

Before Louisa had a chance to respond to Carlyle’s question, or even say anything at all, Kyarle spoke up, saying there was no time for stories or something. Carlyle thought that was kinda rude, but at the same time, he could definitely see where Kyarle was coming from. Out in the middle of the street wasn’t exactly the safest place in the world, and if someone had followed Louisa, like Kyarle had suggested, then they’d all be prreeettty hosed. Carlyle wasn’t even sure how much ammo his rifle held; it could be empty, for all he knew.

Still. Not even letting Louisa say anything? Not cool, dude.

Kyarle had gotten his map out, and seemed to think that the town wasn’t a good place to hole up in. Carlyle was not a master strategist, but here, he had to respectfully disagree. Sure, the town as a whole wasn’t exactly secure, but surely they’d be able to stay protected in a single house, right? They had two guns, and what seemed like two good supporting weapons among them, which they’d only need to use if someone entered the one house they were all hidden in AND was planning on playing. It sounded like a good plan to Carlyle. He wasn’t going to instantly shoot down Kyarle though, or try and overthrow his leadership; the guy seemed to have a good head on his shoulders, and seemed pretty accommodating for a patriot type.

Louisa was the first to speak up when Kyarle asked if there were any thoughts or comments. Carlyle listened with interest, and then concern when she said she’d been mugged and shot by Clara Fox. Back at school, Carlyle had been totally cool with Clara. She wasn’t the most popular kid, but she shared an interest in cycling, and personally, Carlyle thought her actual name was pretty awesome sounding, although he only knew of it by glimpsing it on a school register.

However, if Clara was trying to shoot and mug people, then there was no way Carlyle was going anywhere near her by choice. It didn’t matter how cool people had been back at school, or how close he’d been to them, they were dangerous now. Same thing went to Max. He’d been pretty cool too, but Louisa had said to be careful around her, and what reason did she have to lie? Still... Carlyle had to admit, Max was one of the last people he’d expected to do start playing.

Carlyle decided to voice his opinion, and opened his mouth and raised his hand in preparation to speak. Just before he could, however, Josie spoke up instead, agreeing with Kyarle the patriot, before simply up and walking off. Carlyle was left standing there, looking a little silly, before he closed his mouth and looked from Kyarle to Louisa.

“I, uh... guess we should follow her, right?” Carlyle said after a moment’s hesitation. “Hopefully we can find a good place soon. Then we can fix that arm right up!” Carlyle grinned at Louisa, before picking his rifle back up off the ground, making sure his finger was safely away from the trigger. Then, he turned and followed Josie, calling out to her with his long hair bouncing slightly with each step.

“Yo, Jose! You sure you know where you’re going?”

((Skipping because we're getting very close to the two weeks))

Louisa waited for the three to decide where to go. That's when Josie decided to start walking away from the others. Carlyle knew they had to follow Josie, and said they'd look at Louisa's arm when they had a chance.

"Okay, that sounds good," Louisa said.

Louisa adjusted the bag around her arm and put the Beretta in her coat pocket. She began to follow after Carlyle and Josie.

Well, looks like we're The Lost Children: Program Edition. It would be nice if Tori was with us. And Maxim. Yeah. Maxim.

Louisa caught up with the others and followed them out.
