((Allen Birkman continued from Out on a Tether))

Allen glanced over the notes Andrea gave him, memorizing the information, then closed the book and handed it back to his companion. 'Man, Liz is in for a whole load of shit if she gets herself caught by them,' Allen thought, reminded of Lucy's untimely and gruesome death thanks to the girl's destructive actions. It had to have pissed Danya and his goons off to no end, and he really wouldn't want to be in her shoes right about now.

It was a big risk they were taking themselves, making their way in the direction the helicopter was heading, but as long as they kept their distance from whatever was happening, nothing bad would come out of it, right? And with the flat terrain of the felled forest, they could see for miles in pretty much every direction. So there was virtually no chance of a sneak attack on them.

"Sure, let's stop for a bit," Allen replied, plonking himself down on the nearest tree stump and sighed noisily. He reached inside his bag and pulled out a half-eaten candy bar that he'd plundered from the late Student Council President's bag. He chewed on the remainder of the snack, wondering just how much weight he'd have lost through not eating alone. He was sorely tempted to snack on another bar just to satisfy his hunger, but he fought it, knowing he had to conserve their supplies.

Just in case the people watching them grew suspicious, Allen had suggested to Andrea they use the excuse that they were walking past the logging road and instead heading towards the western side of the island. Well, there was an element of truth in that, since he hadn't been that way before and once they'd done what they were going to do, they probably would go on their merry way and explore on that side of the island afterward. Like Andrea said, hopefully they'd find a couple of discarded duffel bags in the process. Goodness knows the supplies picked up from Max's bag weren't going to keep the pair of them going forever.

The memory of visiting the boarding school and viewing the plaque entered his thoughts again at the mention of the earlier version of the deadly game. 'Sidney Crosby... you poor guy...'

"Hey, uh, Andrea," Allen started, tossing the empty wrapper to the floor, "since you're clued up about the whole Survival of the Fittest stuff, would you know who Sidney Crosby was?"

((Andrea/Allen combo-post GO!))

Well, that was a bit of a random question.

"Sidney Crosby? As in the Sidney Crosby from V1?" Andrea asked, just to make sure Allen hadn't gotten confused with another person of a similar name. There was a Sydney in the same version as Crosby, but he wasn't well known at all, in fact he was only the second person to die and was easily forgotten, wasn't he? 'And just what's that got to do with Allen's question? You need to quit going off on that tangent.'

A nod from Allen confirmed that her assumption was indeed correct, so she continued. "Um, oh yeah, Sidney Crosby. He was supposedly one of the top hockey players of his age, at least until he was captured, that is. Most people know him now as one of the final four in his version of SOTF."

"Whoa, whoa, he actually made it that far?" Allen asked in disbelief. "H-how many people did he kill to get there?"

"Oh, to be fair, there were only around, what, 120 students in V1. He didn't really do a whole lot either, although he did manage to get Amanda Jones killed, which pissed Adam Dodd off to no end, not to mention Cody Jenson who was trying to kill him." Allen stared blankly at Andrea as she explained, having absolutely no idea who any of the other people that she was rattling off actually were. "If I remember correctly he got two kills in, though one was an accident."

"So what happened... y'know... in the final?" Allen asked.

"Well, Cody and Dodd also made it to the 'endgame', as they like to call it, and Cody went to shoot Dodd. However, Sidney leaped in front of him and took the bullet, allowing Dodd to finish off Cody. For someone who was widely considered a coward throughout all of V1, it was a pretty brave thing to do and okay Allen I think you'd better turn around we have company right behind us."

Allen swiveled around quickly on the tree stump, so fast that he lost his balance and fell off sideways. "Whoa!" he cried out, trying to push himself back up onto his makeshift seat but failed to do so. "Ugh, stupid tree," he cursed, righting himself on the ground and looking ahead where Andrea was staring. Two girls, both with black hair, were standing in the distance, and looked to be staring back at them. "Um, what do we do?" he asked, getting back to his feet.

"Depends on who they are and how friendly," Andrea said, squinting her eyes to get a better view at the pair. 'Well this has made things a lot more complicated. Can we even trust them? Can we trust anyone, for that matter? Can I trust Allen-okay, that was a stupid question.'

Andrea took the notepad and scribbled something hastily onto the top piece of paper. "Okay, we'll let them come over if they want to, but be prepared for anything." She then showed Allen the message she'd written:

do NOT tell them anything!!!

And then Andrea quickly scrunched the piece of paper up again. Allen simply nodded in agreement.

Both Andrea and Allen turned to face Roland and his companion the moment he called out to Bounce. "Where the hell is everyone coming from?" Allen whispered to himself, alarmed that they hadn't even noticed the two boys until they'd got within shouting distance of them.

Andrea, meanwhile, was not only concerned by how Roland and Dutchy had arrived without either of them noticing, but also the name he was shouting. 'Is that Roland Hayes? And he's calling out to... oh, it's Bounce,' she thought. "Just... just perfect," Andrea muttered sarcastically. Two girls into SOTF and a boy completely against it. And they were all about to meet up in the middle of the program they loved/abhorred. 'There's gonna be fireworks, that's for sure,' Andrea thought. She would have laughed at the irony of it, but she didn't know how Allen would react to a brief fit of the giggles. Probably would think she was crazy. Probably be right as well. And she couldn't afford to lose Allen, she needed him, dammit.

Andrea and Allen looked back and forth between the two sets of newcomers. A harpoon fell to the ground by Roland's feet, leaving him unarmed and looking a lot less like a threat. Neither Bounce or the other girl had moved much, only turning to face Roland. No weapons on hand either. Guess things weren't as bad as Andrea had initially thought.

In a moment, things became worse than Andrea had initially thought.

Something came sailing through the air out of, well, nowhere. "What the-?!" Allen cried out upon seeing the projectile, while Andrea simply froze when she saw it. 'Holy fuck. Holy fuck is that a grenade?' she frantically thought. 'Oh, oh wait, Allen's got the grenades, it's just a rock. A rock that's about to hit that blond guy-'

She blinked.

'Crap.'

((Craptacular post, will edit at a not-too-much-later date))

The rock hit the blond guy in the leg and he fell down like a house of cards. Both Allen and Andrea could only watch in silent shock as the realization of what just occurred sunk into both of their minds. 'Someone's just attacked that guy... holy crap, there's someone else around here!' Andrea thought in alarm. Obviously neither Allen nor Andrea had thrown the projectile at the guy, and it didn't look to originate from Bounce and the other girl either. So yeah, there was a fourth party lurking around. A dangerous unknown fourth party, one that Roland was now angrily shouting at.

"Don't look at us, we didn't do anything," Allen spoke up to defend himself and Andrea. The other girl traveling with Bounce then called out that she saw where the rock had originated from, looking up in a general direction towards a bush. Allen looked up towards where he thought the girl was glancing at, looking for any signs of movement in the vicinity.

Andrea did the same, staring at the bush. "She's right, it looked like the rock came from there," she whispered to Allen, trying to analyze the current situation and apply some logic to it. "Now, either they don't have a gun, or they're not playing, because if they did have a gun and were playing, we'd all be dead right about now."

A chill ran down Allen's spine at Andrea's mention of a possible close shave with death. "If that was meant to calm me down, it didn't," he whispered back, then looked up to the bush that was supposedly hiding someone. "Alright, uh, whoever's hiding, c-come on out," Allen called out loudly, attempting to maintain a firm and steady voice. It was no easy feat though, considering he had absolutely no clue who was hiding, or what their motives were.

While Allen was feeling pretty damn well anxious with the unknown threat hiding in the bushes, Andrea was quickly becoming frustrated with the way things were going. All the while she and her companion remained standing in just the one place, the terrorists were probably getting further and further ahead of them. That was no good at all, not if she wanted her plan to work at all. She needed all the clues she could get her hands on, and one such clue was getting further and further away with each passing minute. They needed to move, now.

"Okay, Allen, uh, I think it might be time we went our own way as well," she said, watching Dutchy leave with Roland chasing after him. "Nice seeing you, Bounce, but we're just gonna head off now," she called out to the other girl. "You're more than welcome to come along with us, if you wanna. I mean, I'm not a crazy rock-thrower, and neither is Allen to the best of my knowledge, so that's gotta be a plus, huh?"

Speaking of crazy rock-throwers, that person was still hiding and wasn't coming out anytime soon, or so it seemed. "So, uh, I guess we're out of here," Andrea announced. She picked up the duffel bag next to her feet and began to jog away at quite a pace, hoping to quickly make up lost ground and catch up with the helicopter's passengers.

Allen, only half-listening to Andrea as his attention was focused elsewhere, turned away from intently looking at both the bush and the two girls and saw in alarm that she was already quite a distance away from him. "H-Hey, wait u-aaghhh!"

Allen had completely forgotten about the tree stump he'd been sitting on earlier, as it was below his field of vision. So as he made an attempt to run after Andrea, he hit the stump with his foot and tripped over it. He put his arms out to cushion the blow and fell onto his shoulder, rolling onto his back. "Oww..." Allen whimpered, rubbing his shoulder, promptly getting back to his feet and starting to run after Andrea. He only covered about twenty feet when he realized that he left his bag laying there by the stump, so he had to backtrack, grab it and then resume the pursuit.

Neither Andrea nor Allen knew that they'd picked up the other's bag by mistake.
