((Alex Jackson start))

Alex Jackson shot to her feet at the sound of a gunshot in the distance. That couldn’t be a good sign. She was still shaking off the effects of whatever had knocked them out and people were already using weapons. Alex had to admit that she’d been caught up in SOTF the last time it had aired, but she didn’t remember the violence happening quite so early in the game.

She turned a corner and froze. This was some sick game, some sick fight to the death game and her whole senior class was here, the whole senior class including her brother. Roman, where was Roman. She hadn’t seen him earlier, when they were getting the rundown on what was in their packs.

Speaking of which she hadn’t even checked to see what her weapon was, she continued forward cautiously as she began to dig in her pack. Her eyes widened slightly as her hands came into contact with the cold steel at the bottom of her bag. That made her feel slightly better even if she had no idea how to use it, at least she had it and not someone else.

Alex stopped and peered around the corner to find Jessica standing alone in the town center, holding some kind of gun. There was a kid lying on the ground next to her. What the? Alex thought. There was no way Jessica had done that, not the Jessica she’d known at school. Although maybe she’d changed here on the island.

Alex stood still rocking from one foot to another torn with indecision, something that was almost completely foreign to her. Where’s Roman when I need him, she thought. With that Roman was once again forefront in her mind. Where was her brother? Was he okay? She had to find him. He might not always be her favorite person, but he was her brother. Her father’s voice floated through her head, reminding her of the importance of family.

Okay, first thing then, find Roman, Alex decided. Right, okay right after I figure out what went on here with Jessica, then find Roman. Roman will be okay, he’s a Jackson. His model, puzzle ability might actually help him. Shocking. So, not helping, your brother is missing and you’re still criticizing him. FOCUS!

Alex shook her head and took the last bit of her own advice. She needed to focus. Focusing would keep her alive, hopefully. Sighing she stepped forward cautiously and hailed her friend. “Jessica,” she called her hand resting lightly on the weapon inside her bag.

Alex let out a grunt as Jessica practically tackled her in a hug. She swayed slightly and then regained her balance. Letting her pack swing on her shoulder, she wrapped her arms around Jessica, feeling her tears wetting her shirt.

"Alex! Oh my god! I saw Omar Burton! I think Omar killed this guy! No, he killed him! I'm sure of that H-He killed him Alex! Everything was so blurry but he came up to me with a gun in his hand a-a-and he told me to be careful! And he was smiling! Omar had a gun! Oh my god! Alex, what the hell is going on?! Someone like Omar, I-I heard that plenty of people didn't like him, that he avoided making friends in class but I didn't expect him to do this! How could he kill someone Alex?! Why?"

Well that answers one question, but why, why would Omar do something like that? Alex patted Jessica’s back hoping to calm her down some. “Easy, easy Jess,” she soothed. “He’s gone for now at least and hopefully that means that we’re safe.” Although that could change any minute, Alex thought and she wasn’t exactly ready to defend herself. In spite of this thought, she instinctively reached out to steady Jessica when she stumbled away from her. “Easy, deep breaths,” she said parroting the TV crime shows she occasionally caught.

Alex turned them both so that they were facing away from Warren, for the time being. They shouldn’t just leave him like that however. Maybe she’d broach the subject when Jessica was a little stronger. When she looked up she saw one of the cheerleaders head over to her. She didn’t mix with the cheerleaders much, but she recognized this one because she was the exact opposite of the rest of the squad. Alex admired that she still dared to be different.

She gave Fiona her best smile after the girl introduced herself. “Hey Fiona, nice to see you. Welcome to our little group.” Before she could say more Nik Kronwall appeared on the scene as well. “Hey Nik, I think we’re all doing as well as to be expected. Jessica’s a little shaken, but then she saw what happened to poor Warren. How about you two,” she asked. “You okay?”

Alex shook her head at the senselessness of Omar’s actions, as Nik said they all had people they cared about on the island. She agreed with Nik’s assessment of the situation, for now at least it was best to stick together. Besides the more eyes there were, the more likely the chance that they’d spot Roman or at least find information about where he was. Besides they all seemed to be in agreement about playing the game by keeping people safe.

“I think that’s a great idea,” she said. “I’d be grateful for a few more eyes looking for Roman. Besides I think we should let anyone else we meet know about Omar. Even if he is worried about Sierra, there’s no reason to kill poor Warren. Speaking of which shouldn’t we do something besides leave him lying there?”

Alex instinctively stepped closer to Jessica and the others as the group in the square suddenly doubled, none of which she knew very well at all. Although, they apparently knew Warren fairly well. The fact that they’d lost someone they were close too so soon only reinforced Alex’s need to find Roman. This may be a sick twisted game, but she’d feel a lot better once she found out if her brother was okay. She glanced over concerned as Jessica stumbled away from her. Jessica seemed fine, in fact she seemed to be talking to the Asian girl that was worried about paint. Yeah, cuz that’s what important right now, Alex mocked in her head.

“You guys haven’t seen my brother have you,” she asked the new arrivals. “He’s my size, brown hair, blue eyes, glasses.”

She smiled at Nik when he seconded her notion of burying Warren. Then Jessica began talking and it was all Alex could do not to gape at her friend. Burying Warren a waste of time, I so don’t see that. Just because we’ve become victims of this stupid game doesn’t mean we should all start acting like Omar and pretending we’re not human. She shrugged at the waste of time argument, what else did they have to do here. At least this could be one small thing that they could do.

“I disagree. I don’t really think we’re on some sort of timetable. It’s not like they’re letting us off the island tomorrow if we can make it to the docks,” Alex said. “Besides if all of us pitch in it shouldn’t take very long at all. As soon as we find a shovel, that is. No one got one did they? I mean as they’re weapon,” Alex continued on ignoring Jessica’s objections. I guess I see her point, but I’m going to waste my time burying Warren, by myself if I have too. Her mind made up Alex moved a couple steps from Nik, Jessica, and Fiona, looking for anything she could dig with.

Alex watched in amazement as her suggestion and discussion suddenly turned into action. Maria had the grave well in hand before Alex managed to kneel down and join her. She smiled that to herself, she didn’t know about anyone else she came across, but burying Warren had seemed like the right thing today. Once they had Warren buried she stood and absently brushed her hands off on her already stained jeans.

By then Jessica had grabbed her hand. "Are we going with them?" Jessica asked, her voice shaking. "I-I mean... I don't... C'mon, let's go."

Alex regarded the girl she’d been trying to bring out of her shell for the last year and half. Jessica was right; since they’d buried Warren there wasn’t a whole lot for them to do now besides stand here out in the open. She needed to get going if she was going to find Roman. He obviously wasn’t here, so she figured she should explore more of the island. She paused and bit her lip, what if he was looking for her and they missed each other because they were both on the move. She shook her head, she couldn’t just sit her and do nothing, and she needed to be on the move.

Sighing, she squeezed Jessica’s hand. “Yeah come on let’s get going. I need to find Roman. If you guys see him will you tell him that I was here and looking for him,” she asked the group that was still standing around Warren’s makeshift grave.

Decision made she randomly picked a direction, bent down and grabbed her bag, and then headed out of the town center with Jessica in tow.

((Alex Jackson continued in Mad World))
