((Jacob Charles continues from Youth and Beauty Brigade))

See, there was two things on Jacobs mind the moment the group of three heard the second announcement for the day.

1.

Holy....Kwong's alive?

And 2.

What the fuck has Liz Polanski done now?

In all of Jacob's time at Bayview, he'd never given a second thought to the fact that someone in his class might be someone peculiar. No, he'd been with these guys for such a long time, and even now, when death was becoming second nature, he'd just focused upon himself and his own problems. Never thought about the little weird kids, like Polanski, who, by the sound of it, seemed to be so weird or some shit like that that Danya wanted her throat. Tampering with the collars? What the hell did that mean? Did she get it off? What did that mean now? It meant that she could just go into places that other people couldn't, and that was that. She still didn't have any way off the island if she really had her collar off or something.

What the hell, Jacob didn't know this stuff, he was just guessing.

The only thing that slightly worried him at first was the fact that he now had a 1-200, and getting higher by the minute, chance of loosing his head if Polanski wanted to fuck around with the big guy, he knew that. When Kwong's voice announced the death, he was only slightly worried. Not because he had arrogance about the fact that the chance of him being 'sploded was so little, but about the fact that he'd given up caring whether he lived or died. That caring died with the girl he loved.

So he'd tagged along silently with Colin and Tim, not telling them squat. By the third announcement of the day, they knew him no better than when he joined them a few days ago.

So they made their way back to the town. Fucking hell, all the houses looked the same three days later, and Jacob didn't even try to stop the group so he could look for his bag, it'd take forever going through them all. As they walked, Jacob ignoring the urge to try and find both Paige and his bag again, he saw that they were getting closer to the right centre of the town. Big fountain, probably lots of people there as well. He didn't know if it was a good a place as any to get their bearings right, but then again, that was why Jacob wasn't their leader.

Colin stopped them from going any further towards the figure (or was it figures?) already there, and they stopped, nestled between two of the closest buildings, and-holycrapdidmycollarjustbeep?

Not that Jacob was worried or anything. A surprise, nothing else.

Looking around at Colin, he saw the same panic on his face as well. It wasn't at Jacob's, it was at his own. He didn't know if Tim had the same thing going for him, but more than likely, since it happened to both of them. What the hell? This place wasn't a danger place, now was it? No, he'd heard the announcements with his own ears.

Course, what else he heard with his own ears just got a little update when the announcements came on again.

Kwong was gone, Danya was back. Liz was doing more shit, and more collars were being blown. As the sadist began to read off more names, he didn't look at his newfound friends. He sat himself on the ground where they stood, sat, etc, head hung between his knees again. No point showing how much he really didn't care at this point whether or not his head shot off like a firecracker.

That didn't happen; only three names, none of them his.

As soon as the PA crackled off, he lifted his head and looked again towards the fountain. Yep, he was right, it was definitely 'figures', since there was more than one of them. He turned his head towards Colin and spoke up for really the first time since the beach.

"There's people over there, right? I dunno any of 'em that well, so do we wanna go see if they're friendly or something?"

((BARELY skirting inactivity here. I don't really have a lot to work with though.))

From his (frankly, not very good) position on the ground, Jacob saw the girls, but almost instantly they hit the pavement. What was going on over there? Did someone try to shoot at them? Nah, they would have heard that. Were they trying to hide from someone? But there was nobody there, who could they wanna hide from?

...Oh right, them three. Had to be them.

Jacob turned back to Tim and Colin, not sure what to make of the situation.

"What're they doing over there? They tryna hide from someone or something? Like...us?"

What the hell was going on?

Once the girls hit the deck over near that fountain, someone else showed up as well, some girl who looked pretty familiar showed up with them as well. The really short girl on the ground looked like she might have been fumbling with something, he couldn't tell, but nothing happened. It didn't look like anything was happening, right? At least Colin and Tim didn't look like they saw anything dangerous, cause then Colin waltzed over there.

You idiot, you know better than everyone here that you could probably just be waltzing over to some killers.

So they talked, and talked some more, and they didn't want to stay with them. That was fine by Jacob, they could look for his bag elsewhere. If it wasn't for Tim piping up, then it probably would have ended a bit smoother.

...wait, they were here first? Jacob wasn't sure. All he knew, as he approached 5 of his classmates from behind them, was that they showed up and saw that short girl there. If she showed up at the same time as them, then...probably? Still, as Jacob appeared on Colin's opposite side, he couldn't help but give Tim a confused look.

And then...

Jacob got a good look at the girl, and swallowed in instinctive fear. She was looking pretty nasty, pretty intimidating (though he wouldn't have admitted it even under torture) in the looks department, while there was something about her that seemed familiar somehow. The other two girls were more recognisable, however. You had Victoria Logan, one of Bayview's more loose girls, and Bounce, some SOTF fanatic he saw in a discussion with some people about said show not long before the trip. They kinda stood out in a crowd, in that "hey-I-know-you-but-I-don't" kinda way.

But why did the girl out front look so familiar?

...oh, that was it.

Ben told him about her, she was that tall chick from the fencing team, he knew her. Alice, right?

"...hey Alice." Jacob said grimly, but she wasn't sure if she heard him, since the Russian chick jumped out and yelled at Alice to get back. He glanced around him, looking mainly at what he had in his hands (namely, nothing; what was the matter then?), and then around him. No one else was here, but it looked like Timothy woah when did he get that gun?

Jacob didn't know what was happening any more, but he instead gritted his teeth and just hoped that everyone wasn't stupid or paranoid enough to think the wrong things.

It's not like he trusted them. He just didn't wanna die because they knew that.

((Short post is short so I can get Jacob's death over and done with today))

Well, look at that. Seems that Alice was properly paranoid about them. Jacob scratched the back of his head and averted his gaze from the whole situation, it was getting nowhere faster than a donkey on a treadmill. Still, Timothy seemed to get the idea after a while and put the gun away, and that was when Jacob decided that he needed to get his original plan back into action.

If he could find his bag, then he wouldn't be as useless as he was - always.

"Guys, I'm gonna run ahead and look around town for my bag, alright?" Jacob started. It wasn't that these guys weren't great company, he just really really wanted to make sure his stuff was okay.

He strode off in quick strides, leaving the fountained park behind him.
