((G117 Start- Jessie Anderson))

No this can't be happening... why is it happening to us, it must be a joke, it can't happen to us, not us, not me, not... why me!

If she was that kind of girl, Jessie would have been swearing like a trooper down in the tunnels, where she had been blindly stumbling around for what had seemed like hours, yet was probably only minutes. Her head was hurting and the air tasted odd, like something was coasting the oxygen and made it taste off. Not knowing whether it was her being underground (who knew how deep) or maybe they had hit her head when they had put her down in the tunnels, but it all seemed almost like a dream. Only the cold feel of the wall made her think otherwise, as she pushed on them with one hand while holding the small torch with the other.

As soon as she had woken up she had checked her bag and was almost relieved to find that she had been given such a ridiculous item to fight with. Besides paper-cutting someone else to death, what harm could she do with the gossip rag? Besides possibly boring herself to death with the inane celebrity content. Shifting the bag over her shoulder, she was just thankful that she didn't have to carry something that was potentially lethal. Even the pressure of carrying something that could kill someone if she lashed out in anger...... No, she didn't want to think about that, not think about the inevitable fate of the games players, her fellow students.

But somewhere in this darkened tunnel, all Jessie could hear was the screams and cries of someone needing help and instinctively, she went to find the source of it to help. Some may call it foolish, but if someone was hurt, you could be damn sure that Jessie wouldn't sit on her ass when she could be helping them. Never did it occur to the girl that it could be a trick or a ploy to draw someone in to kill them. Seeing the shaking flashlight fall on a girls figure, Jessie hurried over towards her, concern covering her self-preservation. Even on the ice-rink with all the protective gear, if someone went down, Jessie would always check on them the first chance she got to make sure they were ok, as long as it didn't interfere with the game.

Call it her being brought up well, but she was always taught to extend that hand, be the good samaritan, even if it wasn't always in your best interests, to help someone was always the right thing to do, even if they didn't deserve it. But somewhere in these tunnels there was a girl from her school, on the floor crying for help and assistance and Jessie would be damned if she didn't go over there and make sure the girl was ok. Most literally probably. Unless this game they had been thrown into really was hell. Even if this was part of her being tested, Jessie wouldn't be the one too snap and take an innocent life.

In the back of her mind, she thought about all the people she needed to see and find out if they were ok, especially Dan and Imraan. She hoped that she would have a chance to see them soon, hoped she wouldn't hear that they had been attacked or injured from the other students.

"Hey there, I'm here to help, ok? Are you hurt.... Gloria isn't it? It's me, Jessie, Jessie Anderson. Don't worry I am unarmed, I'm here to help, OK?" she said as she approached the hysterical figure, unaware of the other people close to them in the tunnels. The small beam from the torch illuminated her face as she swung it upwards to show the girl who she was, so that Gloria wouldn't try to stab or shoot her. Reaching out a hand to comfort the girl, she hoped her assistance wouldn't be rejected in a violent way.

Even in the darkness of the tunnel it was easily apparent that the girl in front of her was absolutely terrified and Jessie couldn’t have blamed her one bit. Jessie could easily see herself falling to pieces as well if she didn’t have the faith that everything was in His plan and that he was giving her strength to get through this. Of course, falling back on relying on the Lords strength was something that she had once done when playing hockey and she was nervous, but her family and her friends had helped her through that. This however, was the furthest thing from hockey that it could be but that was no reason to abandon everything that she had learnt. If someone needed assistance, you would always lend out a helping hand, it was just simple. But to be honest to herself, she had no idea why they would stay in the tunnels. What if someone was waiting around the corner, ready to slit their throats or shoot them in the back. It was an absolutely terrifying thought, yet it was one she couldn’t escape. But she had to be strong for herself and then she had to be the one who dealt with this, because no-one would help her if she didn’t help herself. But even helping out this random girl in the darkness, with only her flashlight for assistance, but luckily, there was another good Samaritan with her in the tunnel. Turning her flashlight briefly on him, she recognised the boy, Quincy, from some of her classes. At least it wasn’t a total stranger.

“Do you know a way out? I think Glorias not liking it down here, we need to move”.

It was at that exact time when she was sitting in the tunnels, listening to the nearly frantic girl next to her and the boy offering assistance, that Jessie decided if she had a choice, she would never venture underground again. If she could just make it out to see the sunlight one more time, she would be much happier for it, maybe she would even give se silent thanks that she had a sky and a sun and the clouds and all that nature stuff to come see. For all she knew, they could have boobytrapped the caves to collapse or explode on some students to cut the numbers down substantially if some of the players didn’t seem to be keen on killing. But all that mattered for Jessie was getting the hell out of there at that precise moment (and she hoped that using the H word wouldn’t be too much of a bad thing in her mind, it was a most stressful time). Still, she turned to Quincy for answers as Gloria seemed to debate whether to leave the tunnels to herself.

“Gloria, if we don’t go, what if this place turns into a dangerzone and we can’t find our way out. We will be safer on the surface I swear” she said, concern in her voice. Grabbing Quincys outstretched arm to pull herself up, she offered her arm in tandem for Gloria to pull herself up as well. If they stuck together, they would find it easier to make it out of the tunnels and into daylight.

“Thanks Quincy and I did get given this magazine, maybe I can rip pages out as we go, so if we see any scrunched up pieces of gloss, we know that we are going in a circle, but upwards sounds good to me” Jessie replied to his question, shining her flashlight into her bag to fetch the magazine. But the random voice made her jump a little, the flashlight spinning around to illuminate the newcomer to the group. The girl with the glasses, Helen something? Jessie was sure she was in her maths group last year. It sounded like a good plan till the sandcastle bit, but anything to get out of this tunnel.

“Ok, we can go build some sandcastles then I guess, but lets just get out of here already.”

Jessie had to stop herself from panicking when she saw Gloria pull out the gun from her backpack, the torchs light flickering up and down its cold metallic surface. In her mind, Jessie saw the scared girl go from being someone who needed help to someone who was a risk to herself and the people around her. Ok, scared was one thing but scared and armed was something completly dangerous. How many news stories had she seen or heard about people who attacked an intruder and killed them only to find out they were unarmed and then ended up being prosecuted for it?

The answer was that fear and a deadly weapon made a potent and violent mixture. Stepping back slightly until she felt the rocky wall behind her, Jessie listened to the other people around her as they set off to find the way out of the tunnels. Opening up the glossy magazine, Jessie ripped half a page out, scrunched it and dropped it on the floor, before facing the way the others had left.

"Its ok Gloria, you know what, when we make it outside things will be a lot better yeah? We will be able to get some fresh air and get clean and figure out where we are, but we need to get outside, ok? Now just keep the gun pointed downwards so you don't accidently hurt someone? Self defence is good, but you don't want to hurt someone incase you get shocked, ok?" she said to the scared girl as she followed Quincy out of the area.

"Just follow me yeah, we will be fine!"

((Jessie continued in Promise))
