G125, JACQUELINE MYRIE: START

Towards midday on the first day of Survival of the Fittest (Version Four), a small and thoroughly livid girl stomped through the some of the last remaining forest on the island.

Fuck my school. Fuck that fatass who sent us out here. Fuck this rock- At this point, she kicked aside a small stone that had been in her way- Fuck humanity. Fuck... ugh. The young girl allowed herself to collapse onto a fallen log.

Her name was Jackie Myrie, and she was not supposed to be here. Maybe the rest of her class was, but not her. She had a family. She had pets relying on her to take care of them. She was needed in Bayview. She was not meant to die here by the hands of some idiot who she'd insulted in Algebra or something. Someone comes near me, they'll regret it. But she knew this was futile- even if she could bring herself to actually hurt someone, the terrorists seemed to have forgotten to supply her with a weapon like she'd seen some people marching around with.

Jackie looked through her bags again to double check, but sure enough, there was nothing she could hurt someone with. Just a bunch of food, her regular luggage, and some booklet about survival. Fuck tha- but wait... underneath the bread was a shiny cellophane package with a plastic set of vampire teeth.

"Oh my god, are you serious?" She said aloud before tearing open the package with her own teeth. She stared at them for several seconds, and then, without thinking, put them in her mouth over her teeth. They didn't quite fit, however, and she probably looked ridiculous, so she took them out. There was some blood on the little plastic seam where it had scratched her gum, and the rest of the teeth had a faint green color that suggested they glowed in the dark. Great. Instead of a weapon, they'd given her something that would only hurt her and at night, bring attention to her. She couldn't even take her own life if she wanted to. Was this some kind of joke?

Jackie suddenly realized that it was very hot. Adjusting her position on the ground, she brought her knee towards her and began to unzip the bottom half of her black cargo pants, turning them into shorts. What else had she brought that she could use to protect herself? She'd seen a movie once where a girl stabbed someone with a pen. Could you do that in real life? If not maybe she could strangle someone with a belt or chain... or she could clobber someone with a book, or one of those loaves of bread if it got stale enough. If she survived long enough.

For lack of any better ideas, the girl laid down on the ground, not caring if her hair got dirty or if someone more vicious found her there. For the moment, Jacqueline Myrie didn't care about anything at all.

Remaining in her hopeless, self-pitying stupor, Jackie was just about to roll over and grab a candy bar out of her backpack when a loud, overly cheerful voice jerked her back into reality.

"WHOA!" She yelled, sitting straight up with her fists ready to pummel her assailant... who turned out to just be some fat chick. Jackie'd seen her before, but she hadn't realized she still went to the school. As far as Jackie could tell, the girl had dropped out after junior year. The hell was she doing here? Keep your guard up keep your guard up keep your guard up. Jackie had spent years trying to convince the world she could hurt it if she wanted to, and she would be damned if it had all been for nothing. She tried to take the chain off of her discarded pantleg bottom for an improvised weapon, but when it refused to come off after a couple seconds of fiddling, she simply held it up with her hand, fabric and all.

"Look, lady, I know we all wanna get out of here alive..." Oh Christ, what was she saying? "But if... if you come any closer, I'll- I'll hurt you." Only when she finished talking did Jackie realize how ridiculous this all was. She was threatening a larger person with a pantleg, and worst of all, she couldn't even get out her threatening speech without stuttering like an idiot. Could she even take this bitch? People get fat because they're not fit, so they're not strong, right? Or was size enough to overpower her? Maybe she'd run off if she just pushed her a couple times, like Rebecca did when they were younger? Of course, that was all meaningless if the girl happened to be toting anything more powerful than freaking glow in the dark fangs. At that moment, the fabric finally fell away, leaving Jackie with a metal chain dangling from her left hand.

This is going to suck.

"I'm not a threat, don't worry."

Yesterday, any day before now, Jackie would have been much quicker to believe these words. She wanted to believe them now, but the back of her mind kept repeating one thing over and over and over- Trust and they'll kill you. But then, a new thought dawned on the girl- that didn't mean Jackie couldn't try to make this fatass trust her.

"Alright, I believe you. Just, um... keep your weapons where I can see 'em." The girl did seem legitimately nice, and it wasn't like she would have any enemies since no one really rememb- Trust no one, Jackie! Right. Gain her trust first. Got it. Jackie made sure not to smile as she looked at the girl- which wasn't too hard, since she rarely smiled anyway. When did she smile? Oh right, with Rebecca, who she would never see again... Don't think about that. This was no time to get emotional. And I WILL see her again, she confirmed in her mind- as far as she was concerned, it was only a matter of time before cops or something got here.

But have they ever arrived in the other seasons?

Jackie was NOT going to think about that. Fortunately- well, UNfortunately, rather- her thoughts were interrupted by footsteps. And voices. Jackie looked around, but she couldn't see where they were coming from. She turned back to the larger girl. "Someone's coming. Get down if you know what's good for you, but if not then don't freaking blow my cover." She ducked back behind the log, knowing the other girl would heed her request if she really wanted Jackie to trust her.

Fuck. Fuck fuck fuck.

They'd seen her. She hadn't hidden well enough. Or maybe that fatass hadn't. Damn it. Jackie looked over at the girl crouched down next to her, breathing heavily and clutching her inhaler. Oh great, asthma. THAT'll help a lot. The girl's breathing could not have been any louder at that moment. But as Jackie kept looking at the inhaler, a different feeling tugged at the edges of her conscious- her conscience, perhaps. It was the same feeling she had when she adopted animals. You can't do that now, you can't even protect yourself! Right. Jackie looked back at the pair standing mere yards away. Did they seem alright? That girl seemed pretty skittish, but the guy had acted friendly. The problem was, they both had weapons. Crap.

Well, if they knew she was there, she'd have to come out at some point. Damn it. Damn it damn it damn it. This was NOT going well. "Here goes nothing," she muttered to her companion as she rose.

For a split second Jackie thought to grab the chain again, but she decided not to- this would be a train wreck with or without a pathetic improvised weapon.

"I- my name's Jackie. If you don't recognize me, I mean." Now what? Um... "I mean, I'm not really good with names so
I figure it'd-"
She was rambling. Come on, wrap it up. "Anyway. If you're actually friendly, good. But if you try anything, I will hurt you." Her mind went back to her companion behind the log. No, don't. She still has a chance to get out of here.

"So uh, who are you guys?"

They were smiling. Joking, even. Where the fuck did they think they were?

Oh, I get it. They both had weapons. Stuff they could actually bust some brains with. They thought they could get all cocky just because they had the upper hand here against that short weird girl no one liked. Fucking assholes.

Jackie had been pretty stressed out already, and now she could feel her blood rising to a steady boil. They think they're better than me. That's how it had always been. That's how it was at home, that's how it was at school, and that's how it would be here. And now it was going to cost her her life if she didn't do something about it. She felt a familiar swelling in the upper part of her head- No no no no no. Don't cry. No weakness. Not now don't cry don't cry don't cry-

"DON'T FUCKING PATRONIZE ME!" Her voice had broken as she filled the air with her shrill, shrieking command. Shit. Now they're going to laugh and they'll think she's a total baby and they'll just hit her in the skull with that fucking pipe because no, of course someone so stupid and weak isn't going to make it here, we're practically doing her a favor here seriously, fuck those guys all they do is sit in the quad probably smoking or some dumb shit and talk about sex and makeup and all those things teenagers are supposed to like they'll never understand her because she's not like them and she doesn't even want to be like them but this is why she can't have friends and shit like this happens.

"FUCK YOU!" And she grabbed her bags and took off into the woods. Her name was Jacqueline Myrie, and she clearly was not supposed to be here.

[[Jackie Myrie continued elsewhere]]
