((Darius Van Dyke continued from Just People In A Messed Up Place))
Jonathan and him went back to the place he slept at.
"Look at this."
All the useless equipment that gave them hope.
This could be their shelter, their headquarter. Temporarily, before this becomes a danger zone. But Darius knew that Jon would be strong enough to carry stuff for him in case they needed to move somewhere else. He looked at Jon.
"We should do this. We should accomplish this. We will be able to get out without being a moron who follow the rules. I have an idea. I know what we need to escape. We have to either scavenge for stuff or look out for important sources like electricity being around here anywhere. On the island somewhere..."
Darius had ideas what needed to be done to get rid of the control they had from the terrorists. But maybe whatever they will find will inspire him to have a better idea.
"Be warned, though. We just have ONE chance. What if it fails, you might ask? If this try fails, I promise you, that I'll play instead."
Darius was not sure whether he would really do that. Playing, that is. He would not kill, yeah, but maybe try to survive, winning with being the last one alive. Hah, if that would ever happen. He was not such a loser to give up that quickly. But, he hoped that this statement would pressure Jon more.
"But if this try fails, we're probably all dead anyway."

So this was the place...
"Darius... It's kind of a shit hole to be honest."
Jonathan wasn't sure what to think. On one hand, they had a lot of equipment to use. On the other, even with power, would it even work? Where would they even get power? But there was a lot of things they could do with it.
Jonathan had already figured out a plan. If they got it working, Jonathan had the tape recorder. He could make deliberate white noise, just loop specific phrases and someone checking the airwaves couldn't mistake it for something accidental. It would be like a Russian Numbers Station, except it's an SOS call.
There was one problem with that, and it was the exact reason he'd use the recorder.
If this worked, it would be guaranteed Jonathan and Darius would die. Their only voice would be the one from the recorder.
But if it did work, people would find them, the terrorists would be found. People would be saved, the Terrorists would be brought to justice.
Jonathan listened to Darius, when he said something that shocked Jonathan to the bone.
Darius did have an idea, and he did have a location to kick-start it. But his reasoning for doing this? It was entirely selfish, he wanted to get himself out of here. It wasn't about the plan to him. It was simply a means to leave...
Jonathan would work with Darius, but he has lost all respect for him.
