We're leaving together
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back
To Earth, who can tell?


There are people on the planet Earth that are unable to contain their curiousity. If they see a button, it MUST be pushed. If a closed door lies in front of them, then opening it is a necessity. Such curious people will often find themselves in unfavourable situations, especially if they are impulsive and act quickly, without thought. To say that Jamie Li; perhaps better known to viewers as Girl #034, was one such individual would be delivering a substantial understatement. When Jamie had been a little girl, her parents had been forced to keep one eye on her at all times, as she would find a way to get into all sorts of strange little situations due mainly to her inquisitive nature. It was a personality trait, perhaps, but one that she found would help define her as a person as she grew older.

It was a tad unfortunate then, that Jamie Li had regained consciousness, seen a closed door, and wandered through it without a second thought to the contrary. For the first thirty-five minutes that she'd been awake on the island, she had essentially been running on autopilot. Her brain was still trying to sort through all of the new information that she'd recieved, from the gravity of her situation to the collar around her neck. Instead of thinking about it, Jamie had simply gotten up and wandered through the door, pressing onward and downward into the tunnel that had stretched out in front of her.

Of course, now that Jamie's mind had finally reconnected with the rest of her body, she was beginning to realize what a mistake that had been. For starters, it was pitch black, and a search of her pockets had allowed her the pleasure of finding that all of her various essentials - cell phone, lighter, and IPod, had all been taken from her. All that she had on her person was her wallet, and the knapsack that she'd basically forgotten about bringing along on this trip. It seemed heavier, and now that Jamie had come to her senses, she felt something sticking out of the back of it, occasionally brushing the back of her head.

The other reason that wandering around had been a mistake was because Jamie had simply taken a random approach to the directions that she'd travelled, and now could not have found her way back to the door if she'd tried.

Okay...I think I went...left, right, left, and left? Or was it right, right, left...aw, hell!

Things were most certainly not shaping up to be very good for Jamie within the next couple of weeks, and yet she avoided thinking about the gravity of her situation. There existed a good possibility that she might start to freak out if she were to consider it, so instead she decided to devote her mental faculties entirely to figuring out a way out of these tunnels. They did seem to stretch on endlessly, and while she'd been walking through them for quite a while now, she had yet to see any kind of light source, or any indication that a door to the surface lay in front of her.

As the object in her pack brushed against the back of her head one more time, Jamie finally stopped. It had happened enough times that ignoring it at the beginning had been easy. Though now that her brain was starting to reaquire the sharpness that it usually had, and whatever drugs that had been pumped into her system were starting to wear off, she found herself finding it an annoyance. Stopping in her tracks, Jamie reached around her head and grabbed the object, yanking it out of her pack with one gesture. It was lighter than she'd assumed that it was, but as she turned the object around in her hands, her brow furrowed as she came to the realization that the object was none other than...

"...a pool noodle? Why do I have a POOL NOODLE?!"

The desperation was beginning to sneak into Jamie's voice, and immediately, she tried to compose herself once again. Unfortunately, when one finds themselves in pitch-black tunnels with no light source and no idea where you are, all the while trying to avoid thinking about the fact that you've been kidnapped and forced to play a sick terrorist's game, it doesn't lend itself very well to keeping composed.

Perhaps it was the frustration, the anger, or even the fear, but finally, Jamie Li let out a scream of anguish, and kicked a wall.

What a mess.

I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?
It's the final countdown

After what seemed like days of searching around in the dark (even though truly, it had only been a few hours), Jamie finally found a door to the surface. With a visible sigh of relief, she pulled the door open and made her way to another part of the island. As she did, she still wondered how it was that some people managed to have such incredible vision, in such a dark room...?

Woulda been nice if the fuckers'd given ME a flashlight!
