((Rein Bumgarner continued from Under The Seas Is Where No One Wants To Be))

Rein was starting to get tired from all the walking he did. Sure he didn't mind physical activity but on this island... He would need to conserve his energy. Of course the urge to find Gary was enough for him to push forward. No way in hell was he giving up. Not while his best friend was still breathing.

Looking at his three allies... No they were more then just allies. Simon, Kari and Carol had become his friends. People he cared for. Only half a day pass and he was already deeply attach to them. Elaine was right when she told him he had a big heart. He was always there for others. Especially those suffering unpleasant ordeals.

Eventually darkness loom over them. With night time came danger and fatigue. Luckily Simon had both found a convenient shelter and decided they should rest. Rein was slightly uncomfortable to simply hide and rest while Gary was still in danger. Yet he knew he had to recovered his energy. Tomorrow was going to be a busy day and he needed the rest.

Rein decided to take first watch. He had travel much longer then the rest of the group and interrupting his sleep might ruin his only chance to get some rest.

The decision was a good one as they suddenly woke up in the middle of the night at the sound of clapping. Slightly annoyed Rein wonder where the sound came from. It took him awhile to get his senses together when he eventually understood what was happening.

The announcements.

Horrified Rein listen as 19 of his classmates were proclaim dead. He wasn't sure if the fact that 19 people he knew were dead or that people he knew actually committed murder. Rein grew slightly dizzy as he listen. His initial thoughts were to pray to god so that Gary would be name. But as the names were announced one by one Rein couldn't help but feel both distress at each name he heard. It was horrible. Just like that a soul was gone. People he never met or barely talk to. People who could of help or brighten their lives just a bit. He would never get the chance.

Eventually the announcement was over and Rein felt confused, stressed and horrified. People were playing the game. People were dead. What was he suppose to do? Gary was obviously in danger now. Heck they all were. He looked at his new friends to see their reaction. Carol stood out as she started sobbing. Rein instantly reacted as his crawl beside her. It was similar to when Elaine cried. He always felt lost for words at these moments. Especially in this case. Out of the 19 students that were dead, how many were her friends? Rein looked at the poor girl. He wonder if he would be reduce to this state if Gary died. Or anyone else he knew.

Instinctively he wrap his arm around the girl and tried to comfort her.

19 were dead. No matter what he would say to Carol, it wouldn't change anything. He could only support her and hope she would recover. Hopefully there will be something he could do to improve the situation.
While I am not taking the pledge myself, I suggest that everyone should give this a read.

((Well two of us were somewhat away so it's kinda hard...))

Rein looked at the newcomer. If she was dangerous she would of just shot them right there... This was proof that their current location wasn't safe.

He raised a eyebrow at the girl's question. Playing hide and seek? Was she okay? Had she not notice what was going on? Seeing as she wasn't listening to Simon's suggestion he decided to that he should remind her that they really should be quiet.

"Excuse me girl but... You really shoult be quiet. You couldt drav attention all around vid dat voice." He whispered to her.

Afterward he double check on Carol to make sure she was alright. This new individuals might just bring problems and Carol had enough stress as it was.

(Picked my college, 95% average at school, work is now steady and my social life is center around yu-gi-oh. I'm back in this!)

Rein wasn't sure anymore what to think of the school. Was she crazy? How could you NOT hear the announcement? YOu had to be either deaf, asleep or doing something that requires a extreme amount of concentration to not be able to hear it. To make it worst she seem pretty dead set then they were responsible for the pain that Carol was having. She really was inconsiderate.

Simon responded with an initial outburst but caught himself. Thank god. Conflict at this point would only lead to more problems and Rein was more then happy that his friend knew how to keep his cool. At least Kari also seemed...

Kari?

Rein noticed Kari wasn't around. Where had she gone off? Answering mother nature's call? Who knows but first he had to deal with the crazy girl. When he looked back at her he noticed her had was touching the collar.

She wouldn't dare... Would she?

Before Rein could react, the girl pulled her locker. Rein acted out instinctively and shielded Carol from the explosion. Of course it did little to no damage to the group it had successfully done when it was suppose to do, kill the girl.

Rein was used to seeing wounds of all kind but the sight of someone's head exploding before you was a bit more then what he was used to seeing. He wasn't as much sick as he was shocked. Before his brain could process what had happen a familiar voice called him out.

Gary.

He took a moment to look at Carol. Not noticing any wounds he stood up and looked around.

"GARY?" He called out.

Only after a few minutes, Gary emerge before them. Never had Rein been so happy to see his best friend before. Running forward he threw his arms around his best friend and gave him a hug. Under normal circumstances he would of never done this but right now the sight of his best friend alive was the greatest gift he could ever earn.
