((Open but be warned that there will be quite a few people joining this thread with Thea, if you could wait until all parties are accounted for we'd be grateful. Thea Kairos continued from Cleanliness and Lonliness.))

Thea drug her feet through the leaves and debris on the ground, scuffing her designer sneakers beyond repair. She’d been doing okay for; she glanced at her watch, oh the last twenty minutes, until they’d entered the forest. She sighed deeply and wiped her face again. She still couldn’t wrap her mind around it. He’d been fine helping Winnie out of the tree in his own awkward way. A ghost of a smile flitted across her face as she remembered the scene. Why didn’t she stay with him? Why had she let herself get so angry at him?

She slumped against a tree not really feeling up to going much further at the moment. What was the point honestly? She should have known better than to let him out of her sight, this stupid island, this stupid game would take James from her. No, no it wasn’t this game it was Hayley Kelly; Hayley that had decided to play along and taken her James. If she did nothing else she would make sure that Hayley paid for it. There had to be some point to all her popularity, to all the friends she’d made. She’d make sure Hayley was on everyone’s hit list. How dare she take someone she loved!

She glanced up at the others, fire in her eyes, as she tried to get herself under control. She’d been doing this a lot switching from one extreme to another. If she didn’t get herself under control there would be nobody to lead this little group. Evie and Alex had reason to be a little off, but Jason he went off because people fought. What the hell was that about? I could have sworn that he’d been hanging around them long enough; to have seen a dressing down of those that thought they could simply declare themselves one of them. Hell, he’d been outside that funhouse of mirrors when she’d told those followers to back off and leave her the hell alone. Where did he get off?

She decided to get her mind occupied with something and asked Evie for James’ bag. She figured the least she could do was see if there was anything in there she could remember him by or bring home to his family.

Thea began rummaging through James’ pack, trying to decide what she should take with her and what should be left. She briefly wondered just who it was that had dropped off James’ stuff. Had they been with James at the end? She sniffled again and paused to wipe tears from her eyes again. She’d just begun taking out the supplies he had left, making a face over the amount of carbs they’d been given to live on.

She glanced up when she heard Alex speak. Well look who decided to join the party? All done having us drag you around?
“We need to talk,” Alex said standing over her.

“Oh, really and what do we need to talk about,” Thea said not bothering to keep the bitterness from her voice. She continued to sort through the bag only just glancing over at him. She noticed that Jason had edged over to Evie and was rambling about his insanity from last night. She rolled her eyes.

Thea rolled her eyes as whatever important conversation Alex wanted to have with her was sidetracked by the arrival of Jasper-Declan. “Later,” he said to her. As if, came her mental response. I so almost care what you think you understand about me. What loosing an arm makes you somehow think you know me?

She sorted through James’ things with a little more force than necessary. She glanced over at Charlie who’d come over now that Alex was distracted.

"Thea ... I'm so sorry about James. I ..." Charlie began.

She nodded absently, what was she supposed to say. Gee me too. I was you know kind of fond of him myself. She glanced at the bag in front of her and noticed something white peaking out from among James’ things. She leaned forward and grabbed it, realizing that it was a picture. Turning it over she found she was staring at the two of them. It was a series of four shots that she’d managed to talk him into taking at the mall. They’d wedged themselves into one of those photo booths. She smiled as she remembered that day.

Charlie’s voice broke into Thea’s memories. "I owe Alex one, so for him I may not shoot her myself, but if she comes along, I may just ... 'space out' if you try to get her."

“I’m sorry what? You just had the nerve to say what to me? We’ve been friends since the SECOND GRADE and all you can manage to do is ‘space out’? Because you owe Alex. Who’s kept all of your secrets for the past ten years? What are you sleeping with him too? That’s awfully fast work, even for you my dear,” Thea stopped and blinked as the rest of Charlene’s words sunk in.

“Wait, you were there when she killed the first time? And you didn’t do anything to stop her or even slow her down? So because you decided she’s hot you let her slide and now, NOW I don’t have a boyfriend. And the best you can do is pretend that you’re not there? You’re unbelievable you know that. UN-BELIVEABLE.”

Thea finished throwing James’ things into her bag and pushed herself off the ground. She stalked away shouldering her way past the boys to find Evelyn. She stopped short to see that Jason stood alone staring into the woods. “Where’s Evie,” she demanded.

Thea watched Jason disappear into the woods. Honestly, what had he been thinking letting Evie wander off with the state she was in? She rolled her eyes. Geez, what do I have to do everything around here? Fortunately she had some experience giving directions. Where would they be without her direction?

Not that it’d helped Alex much, since Jason’d gone around the bend and decided that hack and slash was the best way. She glanced over to where the boys had apparently completely forgotten about them, engrossed as they were in swapping stories. She let out a deep sigh and looked around trying to determine the best course of action when Charlie’s voice interrupted her.

Thea turned towards her best friend and listened as she tried to justify why she was picking Alex over her best friend. To be honest Thea could care less what her reasoning was; she was beyond hurt that Charlie wasn’t going to back her.

“Wait a minute,” she said. “Just where exactly did you and Alex get the idea that I was going to kill Hayley? Honestly, sounds like you two are the bloodthirsty ones. Trying to egg me on into killing someone, trying to take advantage of my feelings for James. Wow, who knew you were that devious Alex, trying to turn Charlie and me against each other. First, you purposely get wounded so Charlie here feels indebted to you. Then you beg someone to cut your arm off, refusing any sort of proper medical treatment, even though you both had first aid kits. Finally, you decide that I’m going to kill Hayley. Just what exactly is your game?”

Thea listened to Alex’s outburst coolly. The longer the talked the more she was beginning to think that her idea had in fact been correct. Alex was seriously unbalanced and was trying to take things out on her.

She crossed her hands over her chest. “Now the truth comes out. Hayley can do no wrong and should in no way be harmed, harassed, or messed with because you love her. Awww how sweet,” she said in a mocking tone. “Congratulations I hope it works out for you. I’m sure you’ll be as happy as James and I are. No wait, as James and I were. She’s a murderer, a psycho, she killed him. MURDERED HIM. MY JAMES, who wouldn’t hurt a fly and who only went around helping people on this island. I can see see how he’d be a really threat. And you love that? Yeah I have a problem with your integrity and motivation on the island.”

“And as for our little understanding,” she said turning towards Jasper-Declan and putting the word understanding in air quotes. “Can you see what I’m talking about? At no time have I mentioned Hayley and yet Alex here as made it the sole purpose. I started out looking for James and then needed some time to collect myself. I have no idea where this Hayley idea came from.”


“And finally, you,” she said turning towards Charlie. “What are you training to be a lawyer all of a sudden? Like I care if there was an “if” in your statement, honestly. Get over yourself Charlie there’s more important things going on then semantics battles. I don’t even know you anymore. You know what I’m out. You wanna hang here with your precious savior and his new boytoy, you’re more than welcome.”

She shouldered her bag, somewhat comforted by the extra weight it now had. She’d emptied James’ bag of the extra food and grabbed a couple of shirts along with the photo. Spinning away from the group she headed into the woods that Jason and Evie had disappeared into not long ago.
