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

Just like that the silence and drudgery of the long walk so far burst in to frenzied conversation. The wounding of the foot of one young naive girl combined with the revelation that a loved one was out there caused a cacophony of voices to rain down on Jason's ears, echoing up and down the tunnel. Jason tried to direct his attention to one or two of the voices but gave up almost instantaneously as everyone continued to speak. In all honesty all the tension and lack of action to vent it had been wearing Jason thin and with Leila's ranting about her feet he had finally had it.

Throwing his bag down and unzipping it with a forceful motion Jason glared at Leila. How could anyone be so stupid? "For fuck's sake Leila are you really that fucking stupid? When you could of asked anyone for a spare pair of footwear? Here." Jason pulled his spare pair of flip-flops out of his bag and flung them at the girl. "Take my thongs." This seemed to hush everyone up for a second and he swore he could hear someone stifle a giggle. He paused in puzzlement as his brain processed why this might be the case. "Flip flops, whatever - god, bloody yanks." He was still furious, ineptitude was something Jason did not deal well with. "Seriously you *have* a first-aid kit." Nathan was on the ball though and had already popped open his medkit. At least someone was thinking straight.

He turned his attention to Brook. "and seriously mate, come on it's like a tiny smell of blood, you can't even see it from here. You..." his temper had faded a little and in all honesty being mad at Brook was not something he could do for long. The guy was infuriating at times but he just had that lost puppy dog look that made you pause when you were about to yell at him for something. "Just try to keep it together mate, I know you've got it in you." Jason gave a weak grin before turning to Maf.

His anger now faded he took a deep breath. "Yeah you're right Maf. We should head out and look for her, but we need to hold on just for a second. No use just blindly running about right? We gotta find out where she went, or at least have a general idea, plus everyone's tired. Let's do this the right way, we can't be making mistakes." Maf's vocalisation had seemed to overpower the other complaints just by tone alone and that is why Jason addressed it last. This was what they had to do. In fact he himself had wanted to find Jennifer since having her along might make Maf a little more relaxed. He looked around. His friends were tired and probably just as grumpy as he was. They would have to have something that boosted their moral soon otherwise they would fall apart.

"Ok. So. First things first we should..."

A voice echo'd down the tunnel. Immediately Jason stopped. He pulled the pistol out from where it hung, jammed in to his shorts and whipped it upwards pointing at the newcomer.

"You heard right but just stop right where you are, and show us what you're carrying before you get any closer." Yet another helpful student appearing out of nowhere, tactically speaking they should be killing whoever it is right now but he knew no one could handle that right now, maybe they could just disarm him and send him on his merry way.

Across all of this the stench of something rotting started to overpower him and Jason suppressed an involuntary gag reaction. Looking askew at Nathan he muttered. "We should get outta here."
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
