Lenny smiled and said, "Well, looks like we're both screwed then when it comes to weapons."
Lenny looked at his sister and said, "Come on, let's go." Lenny looked at Clive and said, "Well Clive, we're heading off towards the coast like I said. You can tag along if you want."
Lenny started to walk forward, Elizabeth following silently behind him, only glancing back to give a faint smile to Clive.
As Lenny approached the entrance of the cave, he stopped, taking in the jungle before him. He remembered which direction he had to go, and he hoped something would be there to reward the journey he was going to undertake. Clive would be a problem. Could he be trusted?
Maybe, though did it matter? Only when it came down to his own survival. Though Lenny wasn't 'playing' the game in the sense some kids probably were. He wasn't killing others to live, or to see his family again. He would kill others so his sister lived, so he would become famous. What did that mean for Clive?
Nothing right now. Clive was a big kid, and was well known as a good kid around school. From that reputation alone Lenny didn't necessarily not trust him, though he sure didn't trust him.
Though did it really matter in the end? No matter what, it seemed there would eventually be a confrontation between Lenny, Elizabeth, and Clive. Though the extent of the confrontation relied on different variables. First off it would be two against one, tilting the odds in Lenny's favor, though by sheer strength and size, Clive had the upper hand.
Though by weapon, Lenny once again had the advantage. That is if Clive was telling the truth.
Though, if Clive was playing, it all depended on how he was playing. Was he playing to win? To survive? For pleasure?
No one ever said alliances couldn't be formed between the most psychotic of the students.
Though none of that mattered at the moment, for Lenny and Elizabeth were about to go to the coast to see what was there.
Lenny just cast a look at Clive and said, "Keep up if you're coming. I don't recommend seeing how far down that rabbit hole goes." Lenny winked at him and moved forward.
