He watched Peter leave with a certain sadness in his eyes. He knew not everyone would agree with him but he had to try. What were the other options? Walk around the island and wait to die? Play?

Fuck that. This was the best plan he had right now. It probably wouldn't work. But he had to try.

Tell me how we can get our coordinates. As far as I know, that thing only shows where people are. And even if we find out where we are, how to we tell anyone who's watching?

Ouch. Kick two in as many minutes. Good questions both. He wished he had a better answer than the one he had to write down.

“I don't know yet.”

He rubbed his eyes with his hands. Did he smell smoke? Some lucky bastard must have got to keep their lighter. He checked the GPS unit as Jonathon and Charlene began to argue. Two people were coming towards their group. At this rate they'd find them at each others throats.

Fuck.

He stood up, standing between the two of them as Charlene drew her pistol. “Put your guns away.” he said, looking between the two of them. If looks could kill, both of them would turn into greasy stains. “You two are not going to kill each other. No one is killing anyone.” he said. “Look, here's how it is. You can either play, die or take a third option.” he said. “It's not the best plan in the world. It probably won't work. But it's all I've got for now. The more people we can pull together, the more likely it is to work.” he said. He was always careful with his words, cautious not to give those watching the camera a hint of his true intent. “My boat may be full of holes, but the martians are invading and it's the last one out of England.” he said.

He winced at his own tortured metaphor.

“Jon, we all have people we care about here.” he held up the GPS. “We'll find people with this, try and recruit them, rescue them when necessary. We've got no way of knowing till we find them. But we'll try. There are people that are dear to me as well on this island.” he said.

Jasper, Jay, Ethan, Hermione... Hayl--

“ALEX!”

He looked over. The two others had arrived and one of them was Hayley. He was smiling wider than he had since he'd gotten on the island.

"Hey, uh, I don't know who you are, but I'm not here to, like, kill you or anything. Just here to bother this asshole,"

He looked over at Jonathan and Charlene. “We're all cool, aren't we?” he said, looking between the two of them. He went over to Hayley and embraced her, hugging her close to him. He didn't say a word, couldn't say anything that wouldn't break his code of honor. So he couldn't tell her that the one person on the island he'd wanted to see more than anyone was her. But the hug was enough.

Then something clicked.

“Holy shit, you're smoking!” he said. “You have a lighter!”

Alex made grabby hands towards it. “Gimmie gimmie gimmie.” He snatched the lighter away and took a cigarette from his pocket and lighting it, taking a long draw. Slowly, with each draw, the effects of nicotine withdrawal began to slowly wear off.

He smiled widely before looking at the GPS screen. “Hayley, I think I have an idea for how to get off the island. I'll explain in a bit, but right now I'm starting to feel a little exposed here. You and your friend should come with us” he said. He didn't mention that he'd seen a couple more lights blinking out.
