A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.

Phil relaxed when he heard Jennifer's lilting tones respond to his query.

"Oh Jen, thats good." Phil stumbled over his words. He wanted to express his relief and how glad he was that Jennifer had come back but he was never one to be able to articulate what he wanted in the first place. In fact this very issue was probably why he resorted to violence when confronted with someone a little more quick witted.

"I'm good, yeah. How long have I been asleep?" He stood up, wincing slightly from the sudden shift of the bandages around his side. Bending down he gritted he teeth as he pulled out a torch from the pack. "We probably should get out of here, the exit isn't far from here."

Picking up the bag he started to walk to the exit before pausing. He turned back to Jennifer and scuffed his foot, eyes to one side. "Uh Jen... I, well, I." He tried so hard to think of the right words, this was important. "I, just wanted to say. Thanks. Yeah, thanks for back there. I owe you one. If your looking for someone I'll help you find them. I'll pay you back."

Phil nodded. It wasn't exactly the sentiment of undying gratitude he wanted to convey but it would have to do for now. He turned back and continued along the way slowly to the exit to the tunnel system. He hoped Jennifer would understand.
Sickness: Partially suicidal... very slightly because of my report, but mostly because Jason is dead. All of my personal issues stem from the fact that Jason Harris did not win SotF v4
