As Adam half listened to the talking outside (half distracted by the ridiculous volume the megaphone was off), he was relieved when Julie seemed to accept the newcomers, if only for the fact that they weren't wandering in shooting. Adam had no qualms with killing them if they were threats, but the less time he had with bullets flying over his head, the better. As he was about to step outside to assist Julie with the coming threat, Adam heard the telltale crackle of the announcement speakers come to life all around him, and stopped to listen carefully.
This time, however, the voice on the other end wasn't Danya's, but a nervous-sounding young voice that probably belonged to one of Danya's less capable assistants.
Wonder why the hell he gets to stutter his way through this shit...what, did he piss off Danya or something? Fuck...
As he listened, he saw that the list of dead had seemingly slowed down through the day, with only a few kills occurring. His two were of course documented, though in between them (interestingly enough), it appeared as though Julie had scored a kill of her own on her way back from getting her Uzi. An Uzi which he now held.
As he listened to the kills, Adam was somewhat unamused to hear that he had judged to have scored the best kill of the day, and that they were rewarding him for doing so. Julie had come back okay, so Adam assumed that it wasn't a trap (of that, he still couldn't be completely sure), but another weapon was key, especially now that it seemed Adam was becoming better armed by the minute.
Stepping outside in full view of the newcomers, Adam sized them up for a quick moment before turning to Julie, who had her pistol trained upon them. One of them wasn't familiar to him. Some girl he'd seen around school - and that was about as far as his knowledge went. Adam hadn't seen it necessary to get to know his schoolmates - rather, he hadn't been ready to get to know anyone, and in retrospect that had been a really good decision.
The second was someone that he was familiar with - though, only after coming onto this island. Sean O'Cann looked wounded, and the colour had drained right out of his face, courtesy of a nasty gash that he had upon his head. Musing to himself that Sean obviously couldn't be feeling all that great right now. Sean and Andy, his boyfriend; who according to the announcements was now deceased, had wanted to group up with Adam. This of course, had all changed once Julie had taken him at gunpoint, but Adam knew that it had been for the better, as Julie was a strong ally who seemed to have clear motivations for staying alive - and Adam respected that. Andy and Sean had each other (or at least, they had), and Adam really at that point had been kind of a lone wolf.
What a god-awful analogy. Sounds like somethin' out of a fucking fan-fiction story. That's just fucking awful.
Sean and the girl seemed like non-players, and while the announcement had attributed kills to both Adam and Julie, he knew that this was likely to startle them a little bit - at least in Julie's case. Most of the island likely knew about Adam's own track record, which was fine by him. All he wanted to do was find Izzy, and try to find a way to beat Danya's system...if he couldn't do that, then...well, he'd cross that bridge once he came to it.
You hopeless motherfucker, you didn't do it last time, what makes you think that it's do-able this time around?
Ignoring the voice of doubt in the back of his mind, Adam wandered up to Julie, temporarily ignoring the two in front of him. Gently touching her shoulder, as he had before so as not to startle her, Adam shot the girl in front of him a weak grin.
"Well, I'll be damned. Looks like I wasn't the only one who was busy fending off the morally bankrupt. I suppose that means that we're tied..."
Adam hesitated, and then shrugged at her.
"...in prizes, too. Speaking of which...I think you're going to need this more than I do at the time being...give me the gun, and you can hold the fort here. I'll try and hurry back as fast as possible, though. Besides, I owe you one. Or...like, ten."
As Julie nodded and swapped Adam the pistol for the Uzi, Adam finally turned to look at Sean, and nodded at the injured boy.
"You've seen better days, bud. Sorry to hear 'bout Andy."
Turning back to Julie, Adam started to step away from the area, checking the pistol to see that it was indeed loaded.
"Hey, Julie? Take care of yourself, eh? Don't go out and get yourself killed or anything like that. I'll see ya in a bit."
With that, Adam took off running towards the treeline, hoping to hit the mess hall before his time limit ran out, and anyone else managed to get there before him.
