Hours passed...

Sam actions cycled between struggling, calling for help, and resting to restore her strength.

Sometime near dawn someone found her, finally.

"Are you OK?"

What the fuck do you think? She kept herself from saying it. She couldn't risk him deciding that it was risky to save someone's life during a blood sport.

"Um... let's try to get this thing off"

Oh no hurry, I was gonna wait until the announcements so that this could place could become a danger zone and my head could pop like a balloon. Again she held her tongue.

"Okay. Um, what to do, what to do? Maybe we push it on the count of three."

"Okay..." Sam said, moving her foot into a position that might hurt less when the stump was removed.

"Yeah, let's go with that. Um, ready? One, two, three."

Together they pushed at the object that pinned her leg to the ground, after some effort it rolled off.

"Um, are you alright?"

"Yeah, I guess... I'm a little bruised up, but nothing seems serious." She used the stump to help herself up. "... My ankle feels a little sore, though. I doubt it's sprained or twisted or anything, but I should probably find some place where I can rest just in case."

"I might need help with that, by the way. I'm sorry to bother you any more but.... What's your name anyway?"
