Who is this sassy lost child

Natali was embarrassed on Maynard's behalf when he admitted that he'd wet himself. She'd been with these guys all of ten minutes and she'd already committed a social blunder. Good going, Nat.

Adam sounded like he was starting to get impatient, and she didn't want to irritate the big guy with a sword, no matter how nice he was. She wasn't eager to leave the beach, but there was no denying that they were dangerously exposed standing around out here. She could always come back later, couldn't she?

Right, of course she could. Of course. To convince herself otherwise would be admitting that she was really, truly going to die somewhere on this island and Natali wasn't quite ready to do that yet.

"Before we go, I'm going to change shoes real quick, okay?" She set her things down and unzipped the bag she'd been assigned; she'd stowed her messenger bag inside so that she could carry everything more easily. Fishing out her tennis shoes and socks, Natali slipped her flip flops off and shook sand off of them before tucking them into the bag and zipping it back up.

She pulled her socks and shoes on as quickly as she could, aware that Adam was probably getting more irritated the longer it took Maynard and her to get their things together. "Much better!" She declared once her shoes were fully on.

"I can help carry your... blade on a stick thing." She offered Maynard. Maybe that would help make up for embarrassing him like she had. "It doesn't look too heavy."

Scooping her things back up, she offered the slightly crumpled map to Adam. "I think we're here," she indicated the stretch of tan along the left side of the island. "Anywhere in particular you want to go?"
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
