G116 - Violetta Lindsberg - Start

'Son of a bitch! My head is killing me!' was Violetta's first thought as she blinked her eyes open, finding herself leaning on the inside of a chain fence. Rubbing her aching eyes, she stumbled onto her feet as she tried to figure out just what exactly had happened to her. She remembered falling asleep on the bus...and then waking up in some room along with the rest of her classmates and watching...Violetta's eyes opened wide and she staggered backwards, emptying whatever food remained in her stomach. Watching horror movies had nothing on seeing the thing in real life. It was one thing to see it on a TV screen. At least then you knew, deep down, that despite all the gruesome killing and shooting, it was all just special effects and all the actors were really okay and probably enjoying a mocha latte or some shit. But watching her teachers get slaughtered in front of her eyes...a shiver ran down her spine as she finally realized where she was and what was going to happen. 'This is it. I'm in Survival of the Fittest. So much for thinking it was some dumb reality show or anything...this is real and I'm most likely going to die.'

She paled even further when she realized what else that meant. 'Cyrille was on the bus with me! Oh no...no, no no no no! She was sitting next to me, but...I don't see her anymore! Is she okay? Did they....they better not have hurt her! I have to find her...she's got to be somewhere in this dumb island, I know it! She couldn't have died...She can't have! I won't accept it!'

Determination blazing in her heart and giving her the strength to push past the paralyzing fear, she knelt down next to the two bags near her feet. One was the duffel bag she had brought for the senior trip and she rifled through it, looking for the laptop computer she had bundled with them. There was no computer inside and Violetta just sighed inwardly, shaking her head. 'Of course they would take it out. The last thing they want is some computer whiz fucking up with their system again, right? Dammit...so the only things they left me with are clothes? Well...I suppose I could try choking someone to death with them...'

She paused as the thought ran through her mind and she rapidly shook her head. 'No. No killing. That's a last resort. I will do it if I have to...but I would much rather not. Let the others break and kill each other first. I'll find Cyrille...I'll protect her. And if someone takes her away from me...the kid gloves are off.' Zipping that bag closed, she looked at the second one. A bland, green bag, Violetta looked at it with a slight scowl as she pried it open and saw what was inside. A bunch of random stuff that would undoubtedly be good for surviving the game and...

"What the fuck? I'm not in a Chinese action flick, am I?" Violetta said with a snort as she picked up her 'weapon'. A blade that looked like a pair of crescents that crossed each other with one of them covered with a binding cloth. She held it awkwardly in one hand, wishing she had gotten something that would actually be useful. But that was probably too much to ask for some a sadistic madman like Danya. Nevertheless, she gave it a few awkward swings in the air before shaking her head and stuffing the weapon back into her pack. There was no way she was going to be able to kill anyone with it or even defend herself with it unless she got lucky.

Hefting both of the bags on her shoulders, she quickly set off to find any of the other students, hoping that she'd find someone who was friendly. Walking along the length of the fence, she found someone angrily kicking at it and she quickly stopped in her tracks, wondering if he was friendly. She could find a place to hide...except the area was rather barren of hiding places and even as she contemplated her options, she saw another kid standing nearby. 'Fortune favors the bold...doesn't it?'

"Hey!" Violetta shouted, pausing a bit as she tried to think over her words. "Are you two...are you two going to go along with this insane game of Danya's?!"
"Oh god dammit, I lost my sense of humor around here. Someone help me find it."

Violetta breathed a sigh of relief and jogged up a bit closer to the two boys, a wide grin on her face. She knew that they could simply be lying just to cover up their true motives, but finding people who at least seemed friendly? That in itself was a big ego booster. If any of them decided to try to kill her...Violetta decided not to think about that as she came to a halt, folding her arms as she got a closer look at her possible allies. She recognized neither of them, but considering how big the senior class was...well, she wasn't that surprised. "My name's Jane. Jane Lindsberg. And I like the way both of you think. This Danya's really fucking crazy and I'm definitely not going to let myself get caught up in all of the killing."

She paused, wondering what she was going to do now. The obvious solution was to propose an alliance between all of them, since there was strength in groups. Not many people, no matter how bloodthirsty they were, would want to take on more than one person except in special circumstances. Of course, in a group there was a chance that there'd be some dramatic argument that would eventually lead to the splitting and their utter annihilation...

"Hey, since we seem to be on the same page about this whole thing...why don't we team up, at least for a little while. I'm looking for my girlfriend...Cyrille LeBlanche? I don't suppose either of you have seen her around?"
"Oh god dammit, I lost my sense of humor around here. Someone help me find it."

Violetta sighed when she heard that both of the boys hadn't seen her girlfriend, struggling to get the disappointment out of her expression. She knew that the odds of them having seen her girlfriend were...almost miniscule, at least. After all, the game had just started and they were on a big honking island. It wasn't anything like school, at least. Still, at least the two of them seemed to be okay with teaming up and frankly, that was a huge plus in her book. 'I've got to look at the bright side of life...if I don't, this whole thing is just going to make me crazy.'

"As for other people I'd like to find....well, probably Samantha Ridley, if any of you have heard of her. She was a friend of mine...you know how it is, right? You never want to see your friends be in danger. She's a blond...kind of slim. About this tall?" She explained, trying to give her new allies some picture of what her friend looked like. "Also, just so you know in case we ever get separated, Cyrille has this green beret she treasures like it was the world. If you see that, she's definitely going to be around."

She took in a deep breath, looking around their location for any sign of cameras or speakers. She didn't have to look hard, though, and she just sighed and shrugged. She tugged on a clump of her dyed-crimson hair and absentmindedly began to chew on it. "Escape...I'm not good with deep plans or things like that. Sorry...it's just not my thing. The first thing is getting these collars off our necks though, right? If we can find some way to disable them, then half of the battle's already won."
"Oh god dammit, I lost my sense of humor around here. Someone help me find it."

"Yeah...I don't think it's possible to really tamper with these things here..." Violetta said bitterly, tapping the hard metal with a finger and hoping that didn't cause it to suddenly explode. Her head stayed right where it was and she shrugged, leaving it alone lest she really do something stupid. Still...they had hope and there was always a chance that they'd find a way to disable the damn things. As long as there was at least minuscule possibility...she kept that thought in mind as she shifted the bags on her shoulders. The two boys she had met...Trent and the other guy, seemed like good enough people and they weren't acting crazy, which was always a plus. Then again, if you actually were playing the game, you'd just lie about playing anyway until the truth came out. 'I'm overthinking things again...I just have to go with the flow and let my instincts guide me. If I do that...hopefully they won't steer me wrong.'

"Hey, thanks a lot." Violetta offered Trent a quick smile. "As for where they'd go...honestly, I'm not too sure. If this was back in Bayview, I could name their favorite haunts, but in an unknown island? No freaking clue. Cyrille'd probably find some place to hole up...I don't think she'd be that keen on exploring the landscape and getting into danger. Samantha...um...she's pretty driven, so she'd definitely go trekking, but...no real clues about where she'd go. Perhaps we'll get lucky and run into them, right?"

She took in a breath, really wishing she had something like psychic powers that she could use to pinpoint their locations. Life really wasn't fair sometimes. And what Trent said about a kid being tossed over a cliff really freaked her out too. She remembered something from the last game...where one of the players had an astounding amount of kills near cliffs. She really didn't want that to happen to her and she echoed Trent's sentiment. "Yeah, uh...let's get outta here."

She would have left, too, if it wasn't for someone shouting at them. Turning, she saw another boy running towards him. It sounded like he knew Trent, so Violetta decided to stay and wait to see what was going to happen.

Violetta nodded at Owen, giving him a slight shrug and smile. "Sounds good to me. See anything like a lake or even a river on that map? Someplace that's hopefully defendable too...I don't think we'll be the only ones with that sort of idea. Honestly, I haven't taken that big of a look at the map itself, but wasn't there like...a town center or something around? Maybe they've got something of use."

She turned her head slightly to glance at Johnny and gave him a shrug as well. "I just woke up recently myself, so I don't know what the hell's been going on here. All I want is to get outta here, find my girlfriend, and kick Danya in the ass so hard his descendants have colon problems."

"Name's Jane. Nice to meet ya."
"Oh god dammit, I lost my sense of humor around here. Someone help me find it."

(OOC: Yeah, I can't wait anymore, unfortunately. I've gotta get Violetta outta here.)

"Hmm...those all sound kind of good, but..." She looked around, shivering a bit as she thought of one of her fellow classmates being impaled on the fence near them. There was a brief flash where she imagined Cyrille on there, blood pouring out of her body and she paled, quickly rubbing her eyes as she tried to shut out the sight. Taking in a couple of deep breaths to calm down her pounding heart, she gave a nod towards Owen. "Uh...let's try going for the town, then. If there are other people, we'll just have to be careful, right? I've got no plans on getting shot by some asshole who decided to play."

"Anyway, we probably should just get going...I don't want to stay in one place too long." She flashed Owen a brief smile before taking out her own map and going towards what she hoped would be the city. "I'll see you there!"

(Violetta Lindsberg continued in Penny For Your Thoughts?.)
