((Bobby Goldman continued from Friendly Fire))


Bobby found that he could only run for very short distances before the pain in his right leg and flank became too much to bear. He limped through the plains which made up most of the island, looking around to try to spot pursuit and listening for other players.

Once, he rested in a small grassy depression for a few minutes. He looked at his map and compass to determine a destination. He realized that it was hopeless in the dark because he didn't know where he was right then. He decided to head south, hoping to reach either the hotel or the cruise ship.

After a couple of hours walking through the night, he found a clearing with a handful of huts and other structures in a circle. In the center of the circle was a bubbling crater of steaming water. This has got to be the geyser. He listened for the sounds of other people hiding nearby, but there was nothing.

There were eight small huts arranged evenly around the geyser, and Bobby inspected each of them in turn. They were all the same: Just a simple wood hut about three yards square with a single doorway (but no door) and a pair of windows (with no glass). The huts had wooden planks for floors. There were no furnishings of any kind in any of the eight.

Bobby was satisfied that he was alone, at least for the moment. His fatigue was beginning to overwhelm him, so he picked one of the small huts, took his pack off and opened it. He took his denim jacket out, lay down, and used the jacket as a blanket.

Within a few minutes, he was asleep.

Bobby woke up, bleary-eyed to the static which marked the beginning of the midnight announcement. Anthony was dead; Karen Ruiz killed him. Ruiz! Her name was Karen Ruiz. I bet nobody at Detroit Central knew her last name until the dude announced it just now.

The hotel and the inland lake were now danger zones. Bobby looked toward the geyser. Don't be an idiot, Bobby; that's not a lake. You're not in a danger zone. He blinked a half-dozen times before he realized that the announcement was over. His head rested on the wood floor, and he was asleep again within the minute.

((Cesar Perdomo, continued from Room Service ))

Cesar had been running, panting and sighing heavily, when he saw Him, his near-death experience at the resort hotel still heavily weighting in his mind.

Bobby Goldman.

He was lying in the floor. At first Cesar thought he could be dead. But then, after he had come closer to him, he saw he was just sleeping.

He looked like he had been through hell also, the poor kid. He inched a little closer to him. He was wearing a grey bandanna. So, he was not one of his teammates. Cesar felt disappointment overcome him. The first person he happened upon in a couple of hours, and he was not even on his team.

Well, Bobby was a nice guy, and so far, Cesar hadn´t hear on him atacking or killing someone.

So, he decided to make a try.

He cleared his voice, as to make the other boy aware of his presence.

"Hello, Bobby..." he said, trying not to sound too freaking scary "Lovely night, isn´t it...? Don´t worry, I am not going to kill you, I am not armed, so, you don´t need to worry..."

Yeah... sounded really neat. Bobby was not moving yet, so Cesar couldn´t knew if the guy indeed had heard him and was too scared to try and move or if he was still sleeping again.

Just in case, Cesar stuck his hands into his pocket. He saw no weapon near the boy, but that didn´t necessarily mean he was not carrying one. Or he could have fashioned one himself, like Cesar. If Bobby had murderous intentions, then Cesar would sure make him pay for them.

For now, he just waited, and expected to see how the other boy´s reaction would be to the encounter.

((Sean Davidson continued from Time to Pretend))

Sean plodded his way back up the island to the geyser, more or less retracing his steps from earlier. The hotel was more or less a non-option now, seeing as a certain asshole the announcer had declared it off-limits, at least for the time being. So after the thrashing he'd received for putting his hands where...well, even he would admit they hadn't belonged there...Sean was heading back up the island.

Not that he knew what to expect. He couldn't think of too many places to lay down...the beach was really a non-option right now, he didn't particularly want to try the forest, and somehow a messy process of deduction led to open ground. He might be a sitting duck, but...

...it wasn't like he was expecting to win right now, anyway. Survive? Maybe...sometimes a group managed to escape (somewhere he'd heard that it was good for ratings to have a group break out every few seasons...kept the drama up or something like that), and it was always possible that his team would do all of the killing that was needed and save him any trouble.

The huts, at least, offered some prospect of shelter...and of being able to sleep on a floor. That was more than he'd been banking on, and between the effects of being thrashed, having gotten high, and generally being exhausted...Sean stumbled into one of the huts, completely oblivious to the presence of anyone else knocking on the window or anything like that (let alone the sleeping kid on the floor), and collapsed...

...right onto Bobby Goldman.

((Brennan O’Brian continued from At Home In The Forest, with Ferric Tam, soonish))

It had gotten dark by the time Brennan and Eric had gotten out of the forest. Brennan knew that they would have to find shelter somewhere, before night truly fell. Not just for warmth and not-exactly-comfort, but he really didn’t feel comfortable sleeping in the open, with classmates and strangers possibly out for blood. So, Eric had picked an almost random direction, seemingly wanting to get as far away as possible from Rishi and Simon. Brennan simply followed the larger boy, almost like a tiny puppy. He didn’t care though. What else could he do? He had nothing to defend himself with. Sure he could have picked up a log or something back in the forest, but would he be able to defend himself with it?

...Would he even want to?

However, as the night drew in, Brennan grew drowsier, despite the constant danger, so he put all other thoughts out of his mind, and concentrated on following Eric to wherever they were going.

Eventually, the two reached their destination. The geyser. Brennan had his flashlight out now, but it was still difficult to see. He could make out the shape of the geyser, and several building shaped objects. Thank goodness. Shelter. Rest. Sleep.

Of course, Brennan was not expecting there to be announcements in the middle of the night. The loud static of the speakers startled him, and he only just managed to stop himself from falling over.

Please, please say no-one’s on there. Please say they’ve survived today at least... wait. W-what was that name he just said?

Karen Ruiz.

No. I-It has to be a different Karen, right?


Really, Brennan barely knew her. He’d sat on the same table as her for five seconds, spoken a total of about two words to her, and he’d seen her around the school corridors. And the guy she’d killed, Anthony, Brennan had never really talked to him that much either. But the fact that people that he knew, even barely, had been killed, or had started killing other students was enough to destroy Brennan’s new-found resolve. He slumped against one of the huts, sobbing, all thoughts of sleep gone.

The bullet wound in Bobby's side was extremely painful. It felt like it was leaking blood, soaking his favorite shirt with the stuff that should be busy circulating inside him to keep him alive. He ran. Karen Ruiz, the murderer (murderess?), was coming after him.

He found the geyser and the eight little huts spaced evenly around it. His heart pounding, he quickly ducked inside one of the huts and curled up into as tight a ball as he could. He tried to keep his breath quiet, his pulse steady, but his panic was rising as he could hear the girl's footsteps coming closer and closer.

She found him. "Hello, Bobby."

Bobby woke up explosively. There was a small boy tripping over him, and Cesar standing on the other side of the hut. "Fuck!" He backed away from Cesar quickly, and grabbed the smaller boy by the throat, hoping to use him as a hostage.

He held the boy (He looks a little familiar; is he from Detroit Central?) like a shield between himself and Cesar. "Don't come any closer, man! I will fuck him up!"

His eyes darted around the hut, looking through the windows and doorway. Where's Karen? Is she nearby? He kept his grip on the boy's neck while edging over to his pack where he left his last makeshift weapon.

"Fuck!" Sean was grabbed by the boy he tripped over as the latter woke up with a start. "Don't come any closer, man! I will fuck him up!"

What the hell?

Somehow, Sean Davidson had gone from wandering into a cabin to fall asleep to tripping over one of its inhabitants to...being a human shield?!? Tired as he was, it took a moment for Sean to process that...and to process the implications of it. For a moment, he thought there must have been something strong in the marijuana that hadn't hit him in the intervening hours...and then Sean came back to Earth (or wherever the hell this island was), and it struck him that this was real...and that if this was going to go wrong, he was going to be the one dead on the floor in the middle.

Dead was one thing Sean wasn't up for being...well, not yet at least. His preference, at least, was for surviving...and that meant getting out of the middle of whatever this situation was.

"Let go of me!" Sean's reaction was slightly choked off by virtue of the hand holding his throat, but Sean still managed to turn to face whomever it was that had grabbed him and offer an elbow at their chest as a way of trying to get the grip broken. The movement was more panicked than anything...but he was hoping that it would suffice to make it clear that he was not a willing hostage by any stretch of the imagination. He offered a second shove with his elbow, if just to underline the point...all a very underwhelming physical reaction, and it was really little more than glorified squirming.

If this gets serious...well, I'll deal with that. I don't care who this is...I don't really want to hurt anyone, but it seems that simply talking with people really isn't an option, so...

((Eric Tam continued from At Home in the Forest))

Eric's feet fucking hurt.

It had been hours since he'd started walking with his little teammate in tow. So many hours passed, that the sun had dipped below the horizon, leaving them bathed in starlight and moonlight. Eric hadn't spoken at all to his companion, except maybe to keep him following at a reasonable pace. At least he had been able to do that without making too much of a fuss.

However long they'd spent walking, at least they ended up getting somewhere. Eric paused to look at his map again. His best bet was that this was the labeled geyser. Which was weird because geysers were rare geological phenomena. Then again, there was supposedly a volcanic hotspot somewhere around on the island too. And a ski resort. This whole island was some weird pastiche of every possible variant of natural environment. But at the same time, it was a lot more real than those video games.

The two of them had just reached one of the geyser's surrounding huts when invisible speakers screeched to life around them. The announcer, introducing himself as Leo, gave a brief recount of the highlights of the previous hours. Highlights being who killed whom, that is. Eric was surprised to hear that only one person had been killed so far. From what he remembered, some seasons started with a lot more bloodshed.

For reasons unknown, Eric's little follower, Brennan, choked out a small cry and seemed to melt against the hut. Eric turned to glare at him, but Brennan didn't seem to notice at all, instead preoccupied by his fervent sobbing.

"Quiet down," Eric hissed. There was a time for crying, and now was not it. They had just gotten here, and Eric hadn't confirmed that it was safe yet. The more the kid cried, the more attention they'd draw to themselves. "Look. You're still okay and things will be alright, but you have to get it together and stop-"

Loud cursing split the air. Eric's head snapped around, looking for its source. Nobody in sight. Still, someone was saying it. Not Leo. Probably in one of the huts. He put his hand on Brennan's head to get his attention, then lifted a finger to his lips. Whatever had happened, it had gathered more attention than the kid's crying, and Eric hoped to keep it that way. Flicking his flashlight off, Eric slowly edged to the door of the next nearest hut.

Things had happened so quick. So fast. Cesar could have never seen it coming.

First, there was this guy, who Cesar didn´t even really knew. He must have been one of the other school´s pupils. His clothes were apparently more fashionable and more posh than the ones worn by the folks at Detroit. He had come into the hut, not paying any attention to Cesar at all, and then he had just stumbled over Bobby. Quite predictable, the wannabe fireman hadn´t taken it very well, and now was taking the other boy hostage.

The other boy seemed to be struggling against Bobby´s arm, but Cesar knew that Bobby had enough strenght to withstand any punch or elbow that the boy sent at him.

He heard some noises outside, but neither Bobby nor the other kid seemed to pay any attention to it. There was the light of a torch, sprawling around in circles, that suddently turned off. Cesar gulped down hard, the only thing that they didn´t need right now was more killers concentrating in this spot.

Well, the fact that they have not attacked by now either means they don´t plan on doing it anytime soon... or that they are waiting for us to finish ourselves off and then come and pick what´s left of us...

He tried to take his mind out off this matters. He had more close problems at hand.

"Look, Bobby..." he tried to talk to the other boy "You know me... we have talked sometimes at school, remember? I am not attempting to hurt you. And this guy here, he is not with me, he has just stumbled in a very unfortunate situation..."

He got his hands out off his pocket, and held them up, like somebody being arrested by the police. They were empty.

"I am not armed, and I mean you no harm. I am not playing..." yet, he quickly added mentally. However, he was not going to let the other boy know about that "I just want to find my teammates. And Odile. I am really sorry to have scared you. And Im sure this guy is also sorry about the same thing. He was just tired, like you, and me... and he just happened to trip over you"

He tried to gaze into Bobby´s eyes, to see if his words had planted the seeds of doubt into the other guy´s mind.

"Bobby, I am not Karen... I am not with her. I am not playing..."

He hoped the other boy would react well. Because if not... then both he and the small guy were done. Goners.

As soon as the other boy realized that he was being grabbed by the throat, he started struggling. That was when Bobby noticed that he was a lot bigger than he'd thought when he first woke up. He tried tightening his grip on the other kid's neck, but he was twisting and turning.

Then the boy swung his elbow; it missed. But the second time he tried to elbow Bobby, he connected. The pain radiated afresh across Bobby's right side, making him wince. He recognized that he couldn't hold the boy still, so he tried a different tack.

Bobby let go of the boy with his left hand, shifted his body, then used his right hand to slam the boy against the nearest wall of the hut. In the moment when the boy was stunned by the impact, he threw a punch at the boy's stomach, then quickly stepped back and grabbed his metal rod.

Cesar was talking to him. Some of his words were lost over the scuffle, but when Bobby had grabbed his improvised weapon, he paused and listened. "Bobby, I am not Karen... I am not with her. I am not playing..."

Bobby was breathing hard; each breath was a new twinge of pain over his right flank. He held the rod like a small quarterstaff and pointed one end of it at the boy he'd just punched. "Get out of here or I will mess you up." He waited for his words to have an effect. A few more breaths meant a few more thrums of pain.

He looked over to where Cesar was standing, showing Bobby that he was unarmed.

Bobby tried to smile at him, but it turned into a grimace instead. "Damn it, Cesar. I was just trying to get some sleep. Everybody on this island is going to go crazy if there's no safe place to rest." He sank down to his knees and closed his eyes. "I watched Anthony get shot right in front of me. I- I just want to be alone right now." Don't cry. Don't cry in front of Cesar, Bobby.

One second, Sean was trying to break loose from Bobby's grip...the next, he was not only free of it, he was being thrown into a wall. That seemed like an improvement until the punch at his gut came flying in, and Sean Davidson doubled over in pain promptly as Bobby's fist connected with roughly the same spot that Zach's had earlier in the day.

Ow? ...yeah, ow.

"Get out of here or I will mess you up."

Pulling a breath in and wincing at the resultant pain (having the wind knocked out of you just after someone had been choking you made for very empty lungs), Sean looked up at his assailant as he gave orders.

Like you didn't just do your best to anyway? This really hasn't been my day...

"Right...whatever..."

His voice was a bit hoarse from the last few minutes' action...he was still catching his breath...but it didn't take much of a hint to make it clear that he needed to get lost. Still, it took him a few moments to stagger back to his feet, get his pack on his back from where it had fallen in the sudden scuffle, and start walking.

"I'm out of here. Have fun..."

Asshole.

And with that, making what time he could, Sean Davidson walked out into the night...hoping not to get shot in the back (or something like that) while leaving. With the way his day (and night) was going, that might actually be an improvement.

Brennan knew that he should stop crying. There was the whole “giving away their position thing”, and there was also the fact that things weren’t going get easier any time soon. He couldn’t keep crying non-stop for a week. Eric was hissing at him, most likely to get him to stop, which, if he was, was completely ineffective.

The loud cursing, however, was enough to make Brennan freeze where he was. In his haste to get some sleep, and his distress at the announcements, he hadn’t checked whether anyone else was at the geyser. He thought about calling out to whoever it was, in the off chance they were friendly, but Eric had put his hand on Brennan’s head, and Brennan took that as a sign that he should be quiet. Flicking the flashlight off, Eric slowly crept round the hut to the door, and Brennan was momentarily alone.

N-now what? I can’t just stay here, can I? W-what if whoever else that's here is hostile, and Eric gets killed? Oh, god...

If Eric died, Brennan knew the guilt would follow him until he died. Flicking his own flashlight off, and, once again, wiping away his tears, he slowly stood up. He could hear voices from inside the hut, but they seemed quiet and distant in comparison to his own heartbeat.

Slowly, surely, Brennan managed to creep round to where Eric was standing. He thought of tapping him on the shoulder, but Brennan still didn’t know whether Eric had a weapon or not, and if he did... well, seeing as he already seemed edgy, startling him would most likely result in a quick and humiliating exit. So Brennan just tried to stay silent, still edging closer to the hut’s door.

There were footsteps, now. They sounded as if someone was coming out of the hut. Whether they were leaving, or investigating, Brennan didn’t know, but the sound was enough for him to let out a small, high pitched cry anyway.

Cesar instantly felt the urge to go over and hug Bobby, to calm him down, but decided it would not be a very good idea, having in mind the emotional state of the poor guy. He had seen Anthony die. The first death on the island, and he had happened to watch it, first-hand. Bobby had let the scrawny other fella go, who had exited the hut without even pausing to look at him. Even a mere "thanks" would have been enough...

Well, so much for saving your life, retard...

As the other guy exited the hut, Cesar could hear a small, high-pitched scream piercing the night air. He instantly tensed up. It had not been Bobby, he was still sulking in one corner of the hut, looking as if he was about to cry. It also couldn´t have been the other boy, his voice sounded very different. There was someone else outside. Watching them. Maybe even preparing themselves to attack now that there were only two of them.

He looked at Bobby one moment, and tried to sound as reassuring and diplomatic as he could.

"Look,Bobby, it´s allright" he was lying, of course, nothing was allright "You don´t have to worry about anything. I am just going to check out if someone is outside. You can sleep if you want. We can make turns to keep watch, if that pleases you... but, first of all, try to relax. Maybe in the morning we can talk about everything..."

He wanted to ask Bobby a few questions. Which team Karen was in? Had he seen Odile? Had he encountered other Team Purple members while he was wandering the island? All those questions would have to wait, he didn´t want to trigger a bigger trauma on the boy than there was already.

He did not know if leaving his back exposed to Bobby was a good idea at all, having in mind that the boy was not in the best of moods, right now. But it was a leap of faith, so Cesar would have to trust him, for the moment being.

He strided, somewhat cautiously, to the doorway. The other guy was nowhere in sight, having dissappeared as quick as he had turned up. It was dark outside, he had to strugge to see anyone.

"Hello!" he said out loud to the darkness surrounding the hut "We are students from Detroit High! We mean you no harm, but if you try to attack us we will be forced to defend ourselves! So, don´t try any funny tactics!"

It sounded narm-y. Very narm-y. But well, to be his very first confrontation in the island, it would have to be enough.

The pain in Bobby's side was magnified every time he sobbed. He struggled to control his breathing so that he wouldn't be in so much pain. He felt the bruise on his leg throbbing as well, but there was very little he could do about that beyond what he had already done. He was tired. He felt hunted.

Are you thinking about giving up, Goldman? After the fight you gave to that bitch with the gun. She fucking shot you and you beat her. She ran, not you. And the stupid kid who elbowed you here in the hut? You kicked his ass and sent him running. You may be hurt, but you ain't down.

Hurt. Not down. Check.


Cesar was talking again, reassuring him that everything would be all right. "You don´t have to worry about anything. I am just going to check out if someone is outside. You can sleep if you want. We can make turns to keep watch," he said. Cesar turned to head outside the hut.

Cesar was a tall kid with a decent physique. Bobby had never fought him, and didn't imagine that he could take Cesar if he did. In his current condition, he'd be just so much meat in Cesar's hands. He's not a bad guy, though. Back in Detroit, he struck me as a nice kid, but spacey. And I think he's hooked on weed.

Bobby used the end of the metal rod in his hands to help him get to his feet. He leaned his back against the wall just beside the doorway Cesar had exited through.

He heard Cesar call out into the darkness, "Hello! We are students from Detroit High! We mean you no harm, but if you try to attack us we will be forced to defend ourselves! So, don´t try any funny tactics!"

That was kind of corny, Cesar. Still, if there is anyone hostile out there, I'm not going to leave Cesar to face them on his own. Bobby held his improvised weapon, ready to go back up Cesar if he needed help.
