((Rein Bumgarner continued from You're Gonna Go Far, Kid))

The young German had walked quite a distance in a short period of time. The boy had gain a unnatural amount of energy from the thought of his friend Gary being in danger. It had become his mission to find his friend, protect him and get him home. He had to make sure that Gary would be able to see his family again. To be able to see Elaine. The thought of her always brought mix emotions to Rein. Sadness for never going to be able to see her ever again. Joy and relief knowing she wasn't in danger. Fear for the fact Elaine was probably watching him and knowing he was a dead man walking. All of these emotions put together was enough to motivated Rein to find Gary, and help everyone he could find. He had to make sure Elaine would be proud of him.

Of course there was one huge flaw in his whole plan; he had no idea where he was. Nor had he realized he had a map which he could of used. Instead the boy just marched from the apocalyptic woods into a random direction, while hoping he would find someone or something. Both of these were answered but neither were what he had expected. First he had left behind the felled forest for what seem a large layer of rocks which obscure his vision of the beach and the two girls on it. Rein of course simply marched on; he was determine to keep moving forward no matter what.

After crossing the rocky barrier he took a moment to look at the sight before him which was of course the ocean. It gave him a feeling of loneliness for some odd reason. As if he was separated from the rest of the world. Which was funny considering he was probably being watch by millions of viewers. He would of debated on the subject if it wasn't for the fact he noticed two girls on the beach. He also notice one had a gun. Said person was also giving her hand to help the other girl, and it seem like she was trying to help. Good that meant she was less likely to put a bullet through his chest. The gesture also made him think of when he had tried helping the girl back at the felled forest. He wonder in the end if she had chased after him or not. He had never bothered stopping to look behind to see if she had followed, and he didn't bother looking behind now either. Instead he focused on the two girls in front of him. Taking a deep breath he started walking towards the pair.

"Hey! Are you tvo alright? To you need any help? Ton't vorry I ton't have a weapon! My name is Rein Bumgarner!" He shouted to the two girls.

Rein did a quick twirl to look away from the girls. He was slightly embarrased about what the girl said. He wasn't sure exactly what she implied but he didn't wanted to know anymore about the subject.

"Oh... Vell... Sorry I didn't knev I barge into a situation like dat.... Uhhh sorry again I'll just vait ofer dere... If you need anyding just call..." He said. He also understood that there was a second guy in the area that he hadn't notice. "Hey second guy! Vhy don't you come ofer here vid me and let de girls have deir space? I'm unarmed so deir noding to worry about. I gave my veapon avay to some terrified girl I met a vhile ago!" He announced.

Afterwards he walked a short distances away from the two girls to give them their space. He went ahead to go over the same rocky terrain to lose sight of the beach and hopefully give the girls the space they desired. He search for a short while to find something that look comfortable and decided to sit there. Sitting there he wonder what to do next. Part of him wish to move on to find Gary but one of the two girls seem in distress. He would feel ashamed to just leave the girl there. The other one seem to know what she was doing but the crying one... He felt he should stay around a little longer to help her out.

"Hey girls I'm just calling to gife you girls an idea of vhere I am. Call if you need anyding alright?" He annouced a second time.

Rein nodded to Simon who was only a short distance away. "Could be a lot better but at least I knov my girlfriend is safe at home. Vid Dat knovledge I dink I can die happy knoving she has a future..." Rein answered Simon.

Strange that he didn't exactly feel that way. His heart was constantly stuck in a mix of torment and joy. As he had said the thought of his girlfriend safe at home was enough to keep him going. The thought of never seeing her again was enough to make him cry. Yet the German had to stay strong. He knew she was watching him and he had to put up a brave face for her. He had to play the hero that she fell in love with. Not some monster. He had to die as Rein Bumgarner.

Which made the next question quite funny. Carol has just ask if he was a bad person. It was hilarious to think he was trying to act like who he was and then get ask if he was a bad man.

"I hope I'm not a bad person, Carol. I vant to try my best to help as many people as I can before I die. I hope you all dink de same vay." He stated while getting up. He turn around and saw Carol approaching Simon, and was obviously trying to help. Rein greatly appreciated that kind act. Just like how he saw the other girl trying to help Carol. Overall Rein had felt that these were good people. People that deserved to live. It wasn't like the group back at the armageddon woods filled with hostility. This group was generally looking out for one and other.

With that thought Rein approach the other girl. He extended his hand to hopefully have a quick handshake.

"Hi dere. I just vant to let you knov dat... I appreciated de fact dat you help Carol. I just came quite a distance from here and de people dere seem almost villing to kill one and other. So I just vant to say this once more; dank you for helping someone and that I'm villing to help you as long as I live on this island. My name is Rein Bumgarner and yours is?" He asked.

(Second time you skip Grim! Learn to control yourself XD)

Rein walk over beside Kari to take a look at the map himself. He notice the area that Simon had suggested. He also notice the church that was in between the warehouse and the beach. Would it be safe to stop there? They could at least take a look and then decide if it's safe or not. If it wasn't it they could just move on. Of course Rein desperately wish to visit it at least once to make sure Gary wasn't there but that would raise the question why Gary would be at a church. Oh well it was small details that Rein didn't cared about. He lifted his hand to point at the church on Kari's map.

"I agree vid de varehouse dat Simon suggestet. It shoult be a safe place to holt up in. I also suggest ve make a quick stop at de church dat's in betveen here ant de sait varehouse. If no one is dere ve can rest for a short vhile insteat of risking a longer travel to de varehouse. Toes dat sound good to everyone?" Rein asked the group.

He look around to see everyone's faces, and to see wherever or not they seem comfortable with the idea. He noticed Carol's wobbly movement and strange face which concerned him. He walk forward and put his arms around her shoulders.

"Hey Carol you okay? Come on let's get you avay from dis place. I'll help you stay steady if you need it." He reassured her as he waited to help her walk away from the water.

((My bad folks! Forgot about Rein :c))

"Danks" He answered to Simon. "I vill glatly take de rear"

Apparently his plan was accepted by the group and Rein's chances of finding Gary had improved.

Hold on buddy... I'm coming

Now he just had to take care of his new found friends. Simon and Kari seemed stable but Carol would need some help. At least until her phobia toned down. As Simon and Kari left, Rein stayed behind to make sure Carol was alright. He stayed within arm reach just in case he needed to catch her or something. His thoughts wander off as he waited.

How are you Gary?

His best friend... Was he alright? He's was always less active both socially and physically than Rein. The German hoped that his friends intelligence would keep him alive. At least long enough so Rein could find him and protect him.

But what if it comes down to these people and Gary?

The thought struck him. Even if he found Gary... Then what? Survive? What if they do? What if only him, Gary, Simon, Carol and Kari were the last ones? What then? Who was he to protect? Who was he going to help? Who was he to ignore and let them die?

Looking up towards Carol, Rein could only feel confusion and sadness. What was she suppose to do? Up to this point he felt like everything would work out. He always found it simple when it was just about protecting Gary. But now he had three new lives to defend. Kids who had friends, family and love ones...

Elaine what would you do...

She wouldn't care about that crap.

Thinking about it Elaine would help all of her friends. She wouldn't care about the finals. Every life was worth defending. He had to remember that. He had to provide hope and protection to these people. The future could wait. He had to live in the moment.

"Vatch me Elaine... I vill protect my frients... Dis game von't take humanity." He whispered.

He extended his hand out to Carol when she was done gathering her stuff. With a new bright smile on his face and his mind stabilized, Rein was ready to once again defend his new friends.

"If de vater still boders you den you can just gife me your hand and close your eyes. I vill guide you to safety alright?" He told her. With that he sets off after Simon and Kari. Wherever Carol grabbed his hand out not, he was ready to aid her at any moment.

(Rein Bumgarner continued elsewhere...)
