((B019 Maxwell Crowe begins))

Play it smart... Play it smart my ass, GODDAMNIT! I cannot even find a way out of this tunnel...

Maxwell Crowe, usually one of the most cheerful people around, now was close to exploding. He could make himself feel a bit better if he would just turn on the music on his iPod, but he decided not to. Even though he charged the batteries before the trip, he knew that abusing his only source of music too much will end up badly very soon. He decided to use it only in (or after if impossible outright) especially stressful situation and before sleeping.

And so he wandered through extremely dark corridors with flashlight in one hand, his designated weapon - Auto Mag handgun - in the other, and his mood got worse and worse with every turn leading to even more and more tunnels. His observing skills meant shit when he could hardly see anything at all. What's more he started to hear voices.

At first he dismissed them as the creation of his mind. He always felt uneasy if he was separated from music for too long, so hearing voices in that kind of stressful situation would be normal. But as he traveled through the dark tunnels, the voices were getting louder or more quiet depending on his position, so he figured there HAS to be someone nearby. And who knows, maybe they will lead him out of this hellhole.

He slowed down his steps as he the voices got loud enough to catch some single words. Whatever those people were talking about, interrupting them would be a stupid idea. At best he would disturb some random conversation, but at worst he could attract the attention of one of the many kids out for blood. And despite acting cool and rational, deep down in his heart Max was scared as hell. He didn't want to die (who did?). His parents were waiting for him, so did his friends from outside of the school.

What about those INSIDE? They are here as well. Maria, Duncan and others? Damn, will I see the ever again?

Finally, He saw a glimpse of light coming out of another turn he would pass in a minute by going forward, and the voices were finally loud enough to understand them clearly. He quickly turned off the flashlight and as silently as he could, he stuck his back to the murky wall just around the corner. And then he started listening. Were the owners of those voices friends or enemies? The time will tell. He tightened the grip on his handgun just to reassure himself, that he's not hopeless even in the worst case scenario.

---

Someone who named himself Peter was talking to someone. He clearly declared not wanting to play and offering alliance, no, friendship to that other person. Good sign for Max. Maybe he could join in and they would escape this place together. But some part of his mind was still skeptic.

What if he's just trying to deceit that other person?

He decided to stay silent and wait for the second persons answer.

Max wasn't really sure what happened next, as Peter and the girl were completely silent. He could sense the slight movement though. Whatever that was, it probably wasn't Maxwell's business, as long as Peter didn't attempt to choke the girl or something.

Finally, the girl spoke and introduced herself as Kaitlin. She sounded unbearably optimistic about running away from this hellhole, Max was sure it wouldn't be nowhere as easy as it would sound from Kaitlin's words, but... Still a better thing to do rather than pointing his pistol and pulling the trigger at every moving object around and hope he'll be the last man standing.

Since both Peter and Kaitlin apparently finished their conversation and wanted to find a way out of here, Max decided, nay, was forced to expose his presence or else it would lead to unnecessary tense situation if they would stumble upon him while searching for exit.

"Uhm..." He looked for the right words to start the conversation while still being behind the corner. "If you're searching for more people looking to get away from this rock, then you have already found one." He turned on and off the flashlight in his left hand to let both Peter and Kaitlin pinpoint Max's location, and finally, still with a pistol in one hand, he moved away from the corner and appeared before the pair.

"My name is Max. Maxwell Crowe. I got lost in those tunnels before hearing your voices. Sorry for eavesdropping you. I needed to know beforehand if none of you is a player."

As he spoke, he noticed that he still held his gun tightly in his right hand, and it of course drew the attention.

"Oh, and about this..." He raised his right hand, pointed the gun upward and put away his fingers from the trigger as far as possible. "I guess, I was the lucky one to draw a gun. I don't plan to use this anytime soon... But it's better to have one rather than not..."

((It's been almost 14 days, so I'm going to break the post order to avoid inactivity. Sorry for that))

Before Peter or Kaitlin even managed to answer, another set of voices, at least 3 different voices as far as he could distinguish at this distance and with this kind of echo, filled the cave. Someone was out there.

Maybe they are at the exit and could lead us out of here?

That would be awesome, but it would be also too easy. Instead of marching toward the source of the voices, Max lowered his hand with a gun, tightened the grip on his Auto Mag just to be more confident, and started watching carefully the tunnel entrance he came in, as he kept listening to the voices. He was good ad dividing attention. Too bad that no music around also made him more nervous. As seconds were passing by, a single drop of sweat came out from his temple and slowly made it's way to the bottom of his face and finally hit the ground.

((What they said))

Max waited patiently as the voices out there started to perish, and soon as far as he could guess, they were alone again. That was an useful information anyway, as going toward the direction the voiced faded had a good chance to lead them to the exit... Or deeper down the tunnels.

Seeing as Peter turned on his flashlight as well and moved forward, Max gave his surrounding a quick look and then followed his new companion.

"C'mon Kaitlin, we cannot stay here." He said to the girl and only halfway through the tunnels he realized how awkward that could've sound as Kaitlin never introduced herself to him.

((Max Crowe continued in Some Fantastic))
