((Jen Romita cont'd from Jack Sparrow Irony))

Jen was still running along behind Morgan. Really she didn't know what else to do, she had no other plan. So far at least, she had been following him blindly, and it had seemed to work out. She hadn't faced any serious danger, apart from him leading her straight into a danger zone. She did recognise that it wasn't his fault, but still, she would prefer it if there was a new plan to follow now that the first one had fallen through.

Morgan wasn't doing very well. He'd started coughing, panting like he was out of breath and out of shape. Even Jen was beginning to feel a pain in her stomach from being on the go, and her breathing was heavier. She could really do with a cigarette, but knew that it wasn't the best time for one just now. Maybe if they found a safe place to rest, camp for the night, she'd allow herself to relax then, crack open the vodka, and go out with a party.

In between his breaths, she heard Morgan ask if she was ok. "I've been better. If you want to stop and catch your breath for a few minutes, we should be good here." She moved to sit down on the ground, trying to give him permission to do the same. To give him further encouragement, she patted the ground beside her.

"I don't know where we are. I can't recognise anything from the map, and I lost my bearings when we were running. Come here. You need to relax. Get your breath back. I think we're safe for the moment."
CAPTAIN OBVIOUS. Or so I'm told.

As Jen sat on the ground, she wondered where they went from here. Ultimately, she knew that she wasn't going to get out of this, but she was determined to go out having fun. And her oldest and closest friend was just a few feet away, getting changed. He had asked her not to peek. Just like Morgan, ever sensitive, ever nervous. And ever gullible. Of course she peeked.

He didn't get naked. Jen was a bit relieved at that. How much of what was going through her head was being influenced by the situation she didn't know, and this was Morgan. Yeah, she'd offered to sleep with him once before, but she'd been drunk at the time. Now, was it because she did want him, or just that she wanted anybody? She loved him, she knew that. More than she had loved any of the guys that she had slept with. But it wasn't a romantic love. Could it be?

She looked over his body. Tight where it needed to be and glistening with sweat, he had filled out to be really very attractive. Far from the scrawny kid she remembered growing up. It was something that she could easily go for, and she knew that he stared at her as well. All the boys did. She could easily have one last hurrah with him.

She turned away as he finished changing, to maintain the pretence that she hadn't looked. As he returned to her, saying that they could stay here for a while, she relaxed again. It may be open and exposed, but at least it was dry, and was about as good as anywhere else they'd been. As Highpockets sat beside her, she rummaged in her bag, looking for what rations they'd been provided with. She pulled out one of the loaves. "Split it with you."

She snuggled in close to him, resting her head on his shoulder, as she had so often before. It was comforting to feel his warmth, hear his heartbeat. "Morgan, I'm glad we found each other here. Without you, I don't know what I would have done."
CAPTAIN OBVIOUS. Or so I'm told.

OK. So Morgan was starting to move closer to her. It was what she wanted, wasn't it? He was nervous, sweaty. It was something she'd experiences with a lot of guys before. But from Morgan, what did it mean. Even as he drew her close and started talking softly to her, she was prepared for almost anything.

Then, just like that, the moment was gone. He turned away, ate more of the bread she'd given him. Why hadn't she produced the vodka?. And once again he was all business, forceful, making plans, reassuring her. Protecting her. Even as he took her hand in his, Jen could sense that something was wrong. But was it fear of the island, or fear of his feelings. She turned and looked at him, deciding whether or not she should kiss him, force him to make a decision about her.

And then the gunshot. Jen jumped as the shot rang through the trees. She hadn't been able to tell just where it had come from, the echoes were surrounding her. She ran behind the nearest cover she could find, a log from a tree that had fallen in the wind some time ago. Somebody was shouting, swearing. It sounded like he'd just shot somebody else. Why was it that they finally met some other people and they were killers? She tried to keep small and still, and prayed that she wouldn't be noticed.

The shooting had stopped. Jen stayed where she was for several moments, cowering under cover. Morgan would rescue her. Morgan would-

Fuck that. She could rescue herself. Morgan wasn't exactly in a much better position than her, so there had to be a way that the pair of them could get out of this. Of course, there was still one advantage that Morgan had. The rifle. If he would return fire then maybe they would be able to escape.

Or give away their positions, and end up shot dead in a fire fight. The first shot hadn't been followed by another so far, so perhaps they were lucky. No point in hanging around though. She got to her feet in a hunkered down position and darted over to the pile of logs that Morgan was behind.

Arriving slightly out of breath, she paused to recover before dispensing advice. "I think we're ok. It's not a sustained attack, and it's probably not against us. I don't want to hang around and find out though. We need to move. You're the man with the plan. Where do we go?"
CAPTAIN OBVIOUS. Or so I'm told.

Jen tried to be strong. She tried to be the good soldier that she needed to be to survive in here. As Morgan ran off, instructing her to follow, she debated her choices. Sure, the shot hadn’t been followed. There was a good chance that they hadn't been the intended targets. And what figures she had seen were now all gone.

Still, there was something holding her back. Fear. If she went out there only to feel a bullet tear through her, then what would it all have been worth. And there was every chance that there was somebody waiting for her. She knew that she'd made enemies in her time, people who wouldn't hesitate to use this as a chance to get revenge on her for real or imagined slights.

On the other hand, hiding and waiting to be caught wouldn't do much use either. Right now, she didn't have much choice. If she wanted to have even a shot at getting off this island, then she had to stick with the plan. And that meant Morgan. She raced off behind him.
