((Stacy Hart continued from Pearl and Destiny.))

Stacy had been lost in her own thoughts while they rested. She hadn't been quite asleep, but she wasn't exactly alert either. She was thinking about her old life. School, wrestling, boys. Her family. She looked to her side and smiled faintly. Sarah had cuddled up close to her. It was like being home. Her sister was getting a little old for it, but every now and then she'd cuddle up to her when things were stressful.

And what's more stressful than being on an island of death?

Stacy sighed and stroked Sarah's hair lightly. She was a cute girl. If she didn't look so innocent cuddled up to her, she might have carried that thought further. Instead she just smiled and returned to her thoughts.

"You know...I feel almost normal right now. Like we could really be on a camping trip together."

She sighed softly and closed her eyes.

"If you were trapped on a desert island, who would you want to be with you?"

Stacy thought about it for a minute and giggled. "You. Who else would I pick?"

The boy laughed and made a face. Stacy gave him a swat. "You would rather have somebody else with you?"

The boy nodded and kissed her cheek gently. "If you were with me, then you'd be stuck on a desert island. I couldn't do that to you."


Her ex had always been sweet like that. She missed him, but nobody would want anybody they loved to be anywhere near the island. It was easier to survive if she didn't actually like anybody trapped with her.

I wonder if you're watching this...I'm not sure whether I want you to or not. I might not make it home. Then again, I don't think I want you to see what I'll have done if I do come back.

Brendan's voice snapped her out of her thoughts. She gave Sarah a gentle shake. "Time to wake up sweetie."

Maybe it was inappropriate for her to be so calm with a very injured boy in need of medical attention, but it also wouldn't do any good to panic. They all needed to stay cool. Getting excited would run them into problems, which they did not need then.
