A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.

((Jason Harris continued from But That Was Yesterday... ))

Jason skirted the outside of the building. He had initially headed towards the Lighthouse like the backup plan had dictated but took pause when he spotted Reiko in the vicinity. Reiko, one of the top killers on the island, well at least according to Jason's notes anyway. He considered briefly trying to take her on but decided against it. Too many variables. He still had a quick look at the lighthouse, checking the area for the prearranged signal that he gave Nathan to mark. He didn't find anything, the two never made it there. Still neither of his friends names were in the announcements so that meant they were still alive. He didn't investigate further. If Nathan and Maf were at the lighthouse they would of moved on, they were both smart enough to do that. So Jason had paused for a second to figure out where they might of moved. As far as nice defensible locations went, the Warehouse was his next guess so that's where Jason went.

His stomach grumbled again as he listened quietly to the area. He'd already spotted Jojo and Saul. The two were standing next to the bushes just near the rear entrance to the building making far too much noise for Jason's liking. The body they were puking over held no interest to Jason just yet. The pack might have food though, which he could definately go for but his brain checked him once again. He probably should avoid them for now. Moving carefully he slipped through the side entrance where Felicia had just entered and paused when he saw the girl.

Shit.

He had hoped he would find Nath and Maf simply sitting there. What a stupid idea. Still, Jason held out some hope that the two would be around. His left hand went to his gun tentatively and hovered over the pistol tucked in to his shorts. Moving quickly he unzipped his backpack, pulling out a small group of twigs he had gathered for just this occasion, scattering them just outside the door he then carefully closed it. He would hear the snapping if anyone was about to open the portal. Stepping to one side so as to dive in to the nearby office if things got dicey Jason called out to Felicia, trying to keep his voice audible but low. Who knew who else was around here.

"Hey Felicia, probably not the smartest was of doing that." He paused for a second, considering his next words. "You don't have any food left do you?"

Despite everything he had told himself about taking out anyone in his way Jason was still shocked from his accidental kill. He wasn't going to make the same mistake again. Still, his hand stayed near his pistol. If things went south he wasn't going to hesitate.

*crack*

Jason jerked slightly as he heard the sound of the twigs just outside the door snap. He whipped himself to one side without hesitation and took up position to the left of the door behind a small stack of crates. It was a decent position to cover the door but he could easily be ambushed from behind. Jason made the assumption that if anyone was sneaking around they would of taken out Felicia already. Glancing back at Felicia Jason creased his brow in a "what the fuck are you doing?" expression.

The girl was usually a little bit more tomboyish and Jason had never heard Felicia shriek like that before, hell she was usually the one yelling and making the boys cringe. She was always more 'one of the guys' more than anything, although they didn't really hang out in the same circles. None of that mattered now however and Jason after frantically making a wave to tell Felicia to take cover turned his attention back to the door. If anyone outside was hostile they were going to get a nasty surprise. He briefly considered calling out but decided against it. If Felicia didn't make a move soon, she'd be the one having to deal with whoever was out there. He hoped it was Saul and Jojo. The two looked like they couldn't stomach the game and he didn't recall either of the two on the announcements. Still, he had to be careful.

The door began to creak open slowly and Jason slowly pulled the pistol from his waist, his finger now tense on the trigger.

I did close the door behind me didn't I? It's not just swinging open right? Play it smart Harris, you're vulnerable until you find Nath and Maf. God damn it, where are they?

You could almost cut the tension in the air and Jason knew he wanted no part of it. They had seen Felicia but they obviously hadn't spotted him yet. He briefly considered skirting around the two and telling them to drop their weapons but crossed that idea off when Felicia spoke up. No, best to remain hidden for now and see how this plays out. Moving ever so slowly Jason made his way to a better vantage position. If shit hit the fan he could always find an exit and if everything worked out, well there was no harm in playing it safe.

Don't do anything even remotely risky before you find Maf and Nath. They at least deserve to know what happened. Jason would be damned before he let the two think either he or Brook were killers. He'd heard Brook's name on the announcements but he knew there was a reasonable explanation for it all. Once this was resolved he would find Maf and Nathan and then go back for Brook. They were going to get out of this.

For sure.

Jason had already clutched his pistol in both hands when Felicia drew her gun drawing a bead on the girl as she pulled the trigger. This time however his hand was steady.

Don't make the same mistake Jason. There might be a reason for this.

He breathed a sigh of relief when an audible click came out of the weapon and nothing happened. She was just letting off steam. Thank god he didn't do anything drastic, now he could come out and BANG

The boy flinched and the gunshot echoed around the warehouse before pulling himself together and standing up from his hiding place. He needed information and quickly. How many people were there and what had just happened? He didn't see Felicia shoot again so that must mean someone else shot right? Jason still had sight of the girl and he looked over to her. She seemed to have been standing stock still for a moment the gun in her hand smoking, no visible wounds. Pressing himself close to a nearby shipping crate Jason maneuvered to the other side to catch a glimpse at the other students. He could hear voices, muffled and distorted though they were and risked a quick peek.

Crouching down a little low he stuck his head out around the corner. Tiffany was on the ground and there was blood. Not much but Jason had seen this before. It was like a strange feeling of Déjà vu only he wasn't the one who pulled the trigger. Tiffany was pale, far too pale for someone in the land of the living and Quincy was kneeling down next to her. Jason still wasn't sure what just happened but more urgently Quincy was whipping the rifle he had strapped to his back off and raising it to a firing position. No way was he going to let someone else get killed on his watch. Stepping out of cover to get a better shot Jason prepared to shoot when a loud clatter came from behind him.

Shit!

He dove to one side just as Quincy whirled around and fired a shot in that direction, whizzing past Jason.

That boy's fast. This is going to be tough. He's a big motherfucker too, I've got to keep my distance and... shit, behind me. It could be anyone! Get in to cover Jason!

Rolling towards a small group of stacked chairs Jason risked a look at the newcomers before sticking his pistol around the corner and firing off a covering shot.

BANG

As Nathan's scraggly blond hair and green eyes came in to focus and Maf's larger unmistakable form followed suite Jason felt his whole body relax for a moment in relief before remembering Quincy was firing off at the trio and both his friends were out in the relative open.

"Nath! Maf! Get down!"

(Short post to avoid inactivity cause seriously guys...)

Jason's ears were ringing over the sound of the bullets. Nath was one the floor and Jason wasn't sure if he was hit or not. Maf, in true Maf style was crouched down, ready to spring in to action but without guidance would do what he always did when unsure. Try not to hurt anyone. Unfortunately Jason needed him to do the exact opposite at the moment.

He only had a few darts left in his pistol and he wasn't about to waste any more. He needed his friends to start shooting or Quincy to pause. Everything was still fucked up. He needed to get back and find Brook, he needed to help Maf find Jen. Once they were all together again everything would start to make sense.

Wouldn't it?

Maf had plowed through Quincy with all the force of a runaway road train and Nathan had followed quickly in his wake with nary a look to the beleaguered Jason. Arguably the scene was a little chaotic but still the Australian couldn't figure out why they hadn't said a word. He wanted to explain what was going on but the two had scampered before he had a chance. Something must of happened, he reasoned to himself. Maf and Nathan would never leave him hanging by himself. Especially with someone firing at him.

Shit shit shit shit

Jason scrambled across slightly to get a better vantage point of what was going on as Nathan burst out of the warehouse.

I should call out to him, tell him to stop... but Quincy's still alive I don't want to get shot.

Despite the situation Jason smiled to himself.

heh, I'm a poet and I didn't know it.

It was then he saw it. Two bodies half covered by fallen crates and two packs. Two packs.

Water. Food. Gear?

Quincy was down for a second meaning Jason had a choice. He could chase after Nathan and Maf, or grab that stuff. He looked up at the slowly closing door of the warehouse and then back to the crates.

They won't get far I can catch them. There might be someone good in those bags. I have to try. I have to

Grabbing the straps of the backpacks he teased them from their owners, watching carefully in case the crates decided to move further. The next few seconds felt like an eternity as he heard Quincy scrambling to his feet from somewhere behind him. A shout? Jason wasn't sure and then footsteps.

Come on, come on, come on.

The first pack was out. Pretty weighty, something was in it. He went for the second. Footsteps, closer this time. This bag was a little harder to pull out. A shiny glint caught his eye though. A small paring knife was grasped in the hand of one of the crushed boys. Not a gun, but better than nothing. Quickly Jason pried open the fingers and pocketed the blade. Quincy was definitely close and he was far stronger than Jason. If they got in to a fight the wiry boy knew he wouldn't last long. Bouncing to his feet Jason broken in to a sprint, his new found prizes in his right hand, his pistol in the left.

He should of shot Quincy then and there while he was on the ground. That was the smart thing to do.

He should of chased down Nathan and Maf straight after.

Should've, would've could've. Still time to catch them. I can explain, I can fix this. They'll stop and we can find Brook and I'll fix everything. More than half the class is dead and we're still alive. We'll group up and this time there will be no mistakes. There's still time.

Grabbing a piece of metal on his way out Jason chucked it behind him, hoping to delay Quincy before shouldering the back door of the warehouse open and sprinting in to sunlight.

"Nathan! Maf! Wait..."

((Jason Harris continued in I will follow you in to the Dark))
