The plans they had...it was being generous to actually call them plans. They had one idea and it was find people which as far as plans went was the most obvious one but it did have plenty of reason to it. It was funny in a way since the reasons two different people could want to find the same person were most likely completely unique to them. Everyone had a different reason for everything they did at the end of the day, whether they realised it or not.

Cassandra had mentioned Alex had a plan but she'd never really got to know what it was. It slowly dawned on Gray at that point that he had become the de facto leader of their trio by virtue of being the one to suggest a plan. The thought made him uneasy. He'd always been the quiet one in the background. Never really saying anything unless he thought it was important. There were always louder voices in his group of friends like Sean or Claire. He just hung out and relaxed, even when he was with Kyran skating he was still the quieter of the two.

Yet here he was, being the leader of the group by virtue of someone needing to actually come up with an idea. It was awkward and in a way slightly distressing. He didn't want to have to make decisions that could lead to someone dying. To come up with crazy plans of escape or make a strategy so that they could steal from people. Leadership just seemed like a slippery slope into something worse. Where everything became ten times more important until either the pressure got to you, you made a mistake or you failed.

Gray looked between Corey and Cassandra and held back a sigh. Instead opting to adjust his hat just so his hands had something to do.

He dropped his bag onto one of the benches and spent a good thirty seconds looking for his map. Once he found it he unfurled it and smoothed it out on the check-in desk.

"I'm thinking we go from here." Gray pointed to where the airstrip was marked on the map. "And head over..." Gray's finger hovered over the map as he decided where to go. The choice was more important now than it had ever been. Pick the wrong place someone could die. So no pressure.

His finger came down.

"Here."

He packed the map away, haphazardly folding it and stuffing it back into his bag. It felt better knowing that now they had a goal, a place to go.

"So we'll just look and see who's there. If no one is, we move on."

The strange feeling of distress he'd had was gone and in it's place was a nervousness. The doubt of whether or not he'd made the right choice. There was no point trying to change that though, he would just have to accept it. Every action had a consequence. That's how he had met Cassandra after all. Maybe sometimes just doing things without thinking worked out. Gray just hoped it was one of those times.

He swung his bag over his shoulders and adjusted his hat again.

"Let's go to the beach I guess."

Maaan, I don't really want to die, but I can't really think of any way to stop you guys without claiming.

I'm Sarah Xu, Vanilla Townie.

...It'd probably be better to have a power role that says something more than "expendable", but what can you do? ^^:
Be more active?

Seriously though my vote stays, claims coming in too late to and it reeks of desperation. Plus it'd be great to claim town now so that we waste time by having people switch votes and...oh wait...yeah.

Yeah, whatever claim that thing was.

Because he hasn't done anything helpful and lurking is anti-town whichever way you slice it.

Maybe people are skittish of voting because they don't want to get jumped on for doing someone thing wrong? I dunno just offering an idea.

V4 Part 2 Mafia Game Thread
I'm going to ask again but why are people tagging me as scum?

Since I don't remember ever being given a concrete reason.

Nessun Dorma
Brianna explained who her brother was and what Chris had done to him. It wasn't something Chris was proud of looking back and now that he'd had time to reassess everything on the island he had come to regret a lot of his actions back at Aurora. Not that it justified them or made them any better, but he had come to realise how badly he had been treating everyone for no reason. That was why everything that Brianna was saying was like hearing everything he had already told himself again.

Hearing it from another person hurt though and Brianna was laying it on thick. Chris just stood there dumbfounded. He had no idea what had brought any of it on. She stopped after saying she hated him.

"I..."

Chris had no idea what to say. It was unexpected and hurtful. Maybe Brianna realised that because she immediately apologised to him and thanked him for everything he'd done. Chris just stood there feeling awkward and confused. She'd changed so quickly from talking about how much she had hated to apologising to thanking him and then to crying.

In the end Chris did the only thing he could think of that made sense.

He pulled Brianna into a tight hug.

"I...I'm sorry...For what I did to your brother. I'm sorry about everything..." He didn't have anything else to say. So he just stood there hugging the crying girl for what seemed like an age. Eventually he released her.

"I'm going to head off back to sleep...you look...I think you...need some time alone."

Chris gave Brianna a small smile and pulled her for an embrace with one arm before turning and heading off back the way he had come through the hospital. What Brianna had said had made him feel terrible. When he got back to the room he had been sleeping in he leaned against the wall with his arms and hung his head. He'd made his bed with his actions at Aurora and he would have to work against the perception he had built up every time he met someone. He sighed and wiped his eyes.

Turning off the flashlight he settled himself down for what was sure to be an unpleasant rest.

It's working fine for me. Are trying to get in using the other irc program you use or just through Mibbit?

Chris relaxed once Brianna dropped the flashlight out of his eyes. He blinked a few times as his eyes readjusted to the darkness of the hospital. Good thing it was Brianna, any other people he met could have reacted in a much deadlier way when surprised like that. He'd gotten lucky with the fact that they still seemed to be the only people on their floor of the hospital.

"No it isn't." Chris agreed. It had been a bad idea to go for a walk since he'd just become more tense but then again the same thing would have happened if he'd have stayed where he was. Neither option was a good one but he'd been left with no choice but to pick one because sleep wasn't going to return.

The hospital itself was a creepy and depressing place that reminded Chris more of a horror movie set than an actual hospital. Maybe that was because of how empty it was especially considering a lot of things had been left relatively untouched. It was as if everyone had just up and left. The fact he'd seen a nuclear power station labelled on the map only strengthened his feeling that something terrible had happened and everyone who had lived on the island had been forced to leave. No time to pack or say good-bye to anyone who was stuck in a hospital bed. It was heart-breaking.

"Michael...your brother?" Chris guessed it was Brianna brother based off the surname but it was probably best to check. "Ummm can't really say I do remember him that well, sorry."

What more could he say?

After he called Corey over Gray felt like a weight had been lifted off of his shoulders. He had someone else who he'd be able to go through everything with. Not that much bad had happened to him but sooner or later something would. At least with Corey around he had someone to rely on. Not to say that he couldn't do that with Cassandra but he hadn't had time to build up any trust with her. On top of that the first meeting he'd had with Cassandra was not what would be described as pleasant.

Cassandra asked him about plans. Gray turned and looked at her as he thought, eventually he just shrugged.

"I don't have a plan." He scratched the back of his neck. "Original plan walked off." He didn't add any more because he still wasn't sure what had happened...well he knew what had happened but it stung. Andi had walked off saying that she needed time alone and that she'd catch up. From there Gray could only assume she had ditched him and gone off on her own. The part that stung was that she'd just left and the fact he didn't know why it bothered him so much only made it worse.

Corey had reached them by the time Gray had finished thinking and he grinned as Corey greeted him. Gray had never really gone in for the whole hugging thing but if there was ever a moment he'd seriously considered hugging some it was Corey right then. If he found Kyran...when he found Kyran he was most likely going to end up hugging him. Which was a weird thought.

"Good to see you too man." He looked between Corey and Cassandra and readjusted his hat before speaking again. "So I guess we need a plan huh?"

Who's closest to being lynched since I'm seriously considering launching a vote at them so we at least get something we can analyze.

For wasting all our time with a line of questioning that accomplished nothing and being totally untrustworthy at this point.

So you're saying lynch it with extreme prejudice right?
