If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

((Dave Morrison, continued from Day of the Dove.))

Dave was, all things considered, not doing all that bad. Sure they'd seen a dude get chainsawed, thrown goth chicks into mirrors, been threatened a couple of times, and heard the ever-growing list of names being listed off, and had to scare off a psychopath with vision issues brandishing a tire iron, but for the most part, they'd been kinda chilled out, the group they'd gotten together. He was sure other people were going through hell right now, but, here he was, the only guy in an increasingly large group of chicks, all headed off to the nearest river to bathe. Come to think about it, he was doing pretty great, actually.

He'd spent most of the day following Charlie's lead as she lead them on their root march to the nearest river, which had seemingly taken them halfway across the island. Dave didn't really mind, though, they'd managed to avoid running into any nutjobs. Dave paused as Charlie asked them to listen. They had to be getting close.

"Huh?" Shit. Screaming. Fucking Screaming. "The fuck?"

The group pushed forwards, coming to a stream- Fuck yeah, they'd actually found something- and the prone, beaten-the-fuck-out-of girl lying by it. The screaming had no doubt come from her. Was she still alive? Charlie promptly freaked the fuck out and shouted for Dave to do something.

Yo, Dave, you okay there? Seem a little spaced out, bro. Yeah, Charlie's fucking shouting at you to do something. The problem was, well, that Dave honestly didn't know what the fuck to do right now. Shit, he had to do something. Anything.

Dave ran forwards and knelt down beside the girl. Who was she? Fuck, didn't matter. Just had to do something. Anything. Right, er, check for a pulse. Dave grabbed the girl's wrist and put two fingers up to it. She still had a heartbeat. That was a start. Shout to Helen. She's the med student, right? She knew this shit. Right, now do what she just suggested.

After a bit of effort, Dave managed to lift the girl, taking the step down into the stream. It was only knee deep but Dave struggled to keep his footing. He bent down. Submerged her in the water. Tried not to drown her.

Hoped it would work.

((Sorry about how long it's taken D:))

Dave pulled the girl out of the water and set her down by the riverbank, before himself climbing out of the river. He was soaked to the skin- as to be expected, really- and breathing heavy, but he'd be fine. The girl they'd have to worry about.

"Collar shit?" He leant in to Liz's notepad. "Hey, see, that fucked you up so no thanks to that, but if you need someone to stop people killing you, I guess I could lend a hand."

Okay? Dave nodded in agreement, he was up for th-

The intercom blared, but, instead of that douchebag Danya, it was... Mr. Kwong? The Math teacher? Why the fuck was he talking to them? Oh God, and he'd just put out a bounty on the very girl he was standing over. Great. Just his fucking luck, huh? Oh, and anyone who helped her would have their head relieved from their shoulders. Amazing. That'd have been good to know before he threw her into the river, thanks.

Oh shit and they'd talked about being told her plan by pad causing explosions and sending people to kill them and shit that was what she was doing right that very second. They had to get out of there before they exploded or the “bounty hunters” started showing up.

"Er, scratch what I said earlier... This is some shit you've gotten us into, Lizzy." Dave looked down at her, writing and stuff. "Now, to be honest, I'm gonna pass on the whole "Kill Liz and recieve a fantastic prize" deal, but sorry, I'm not gonna stick my neck out to protect yours."

He felt just a little bit like a douchebag after that, though.

"Best of luck, though." Dave reached into his pocket, pulled out his kitchen knife. Dropped it beside Liz. She was sat there, white as a sheet. "Oh, and, uh, keep the sweater."

((Permission given to move Winnie from the thread.))

Everyone else had seemed to have followed Dave's idea and decided to leave before any shit went down. Good, that way they wouldn't have to split up. Dave wasn't in that much of a mood to lose anyone. Sucked that Liz would get left on her own, but that's the way the ball rolled. Life's a bitch sometimes. They'd given her what they could to help. She'd just have to figure something out. Liz had been smart enough to do whatever she'd done to piss off the intercom douches, so she'd be smart enough to improvise. Make McGuyver look like an amateur.

Winsome. Winnie. Where'd she gone? Was she okay? Dave had lost track of her after she'd thrown his sweater at Liz. Dave's eyes darted around, checking every nook and cranny he could spot before catching her crouching at the base of a tree. He motioned for the others to wait a second before quietly walking over to her. He helped her up to her feet. Probably didn’t need the help, but Dave gave her it anyway.

"Come on," Dave tried to keep his usually loud voice calm, relaxed. "Winnie, we gotta go."

Izzy and Charlie had already started to move, probably not with the intention of leaving Dave and Winnie behind, but Dave reserved judgement on that one. Where were they headed? Dave figured he would ask on the way. Wherever they were headed, they had probably set it in stone by now.

One last glance at Liz, before he left. Silently wished her luck with her plan. Helen was hesitating now, though. Torn between helping Liz and going with them. Understandable. They still didn't know her all that well. Dave motioned for Helen to join them. She eventually followed, leaving Liz alone. Dave hoped this was the right choice. Just once he wanted to have done the right thing.

With Winnie in tow, Dave followed too.
