Alex was glad that Jake wasnt on the island; he shouldnt have said anything in the first place about the possibility of them killing each other. At least now it wouldnt really matter. Also, for every person that wasnt on the island it meant that the terrorists act would be just that much less successful.
A little while later Stacey had announced intentions to go to a room in the hotel and Sophie had agreed with the idea. Alex said nothing and just nodded his head before standing up and picking up his bags.
Alex had ended up in a room of his own, he was going to say something about how it would be best if they had stayed in the same room, but he understood that women deserved their privacy. It just bothered him because of the increased possibility of all
of their deaths if someone was sneaky enough, whereas if they shared a room it was more likely that only one or none of them would die.
There was also the fact that it would have slightly excited him at the concept of sleeping in the same room with two members of the opposite sex, albeit not so much since they were on an island where if they didnt come up with a plan they would have to end up killing each other.
Alex tossed and turned most of the night, getting in two hours of sleep and finally drifted off for good as the sun came up. He faintly hear the sounds of the announcements and tried his hardest to stay awake for them, but only heard mumbles as he was already in a very comfortable spot.
A few moments later he heard a very loud yell that roused him from sleep, though he couldnt understand what it was saying. He rubbed his eyes to get the sleepiness out of them and sat up; opening his ears for a better possibility of hearing what was said. Then he heard another shout, this time from a separate person. He heard what was said and got up quickly; he grabbed his stuff and then noticed beeping on his collar.
He then realized why he had heard the yells. After getting the rest of his stuff and putting his shoes back on he ran as quickly as he could out of the hotel.
