Welcome to Survival of the Fittest, a RPing board loosely based off of Koshun Takami's Battle Royale, with its own unique plot and spin on the 'deadly game'. We've been around quite a while, and are now in our thirteenth year, so don't worry about us going anywhere any time soon!

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!

(((Rea Adams, continued from Morning Dew)))

So. Target. One of the few chain stores that existed both in her home country and here, and with the same name as well, it was a brief familiar sight amidst all the unfamiliarity of the country; one of the few things she recognised from where she was from when she first arrived in the States. Speaking of familiar sights, there was one right now. Scarlet McPhee, or whatever Ben had said her name was. His partner. Well, after some elaboration on his part, she found that Scarlett was only his partner for studying Macbeth. Wouldn't make sense anyhow, considering the fact that he had a thing for that Lucy girl or whoever she was.

Regardless, after a tumultuous morning and an even worse yesterday, she found herself going through the local target; just browsing to see if there was anything she liked the look of. Of course, as Ben reminded Rea constantly, simply browsing and buying whatever the hell she felt like without consequence was a luxury that normal people (like himself) simply couldn't afford. Well, that was what she understood from him anyway.

Anyway, Scarlett was standing there in the aisle, deciding between several different colours of shirt. Well, Rea was walking by her anyway, might as well say hi.

"Hey, you're Scarlett McPhee, right? Ben's friend or something?"

"Oh my- sorry about that Scarlett. Must've misheard it from Ben or something."

This had to stop. How many people was she going to inadvertently make mortal enemies out of by getting their name wrong? First there was Asha Sur, which she now knew too late that "Asha" was not, in fact, short for "Ashley", as she had originally believed, but was actually a name given to her by her father who died before she was born.

It was almost comical how bad she fucked up.

Fortunately though, Scarlett had reacted far more jovially to Rea's mistake than Asha had. It also didn't hurt that they were both good friends of Ben Fields.

But who was this new guy she'd just called out to? Jerry, was it? An almost maniacal grin spread across her face as she called out to him. Rea swung round to see who this Jerry kid was.

Oh. Him. That guy. The ballerina. Jasmine had pointed out to her (before their sudden falling out) that this guy was apparently really into both Wrestling and Ballet. Which meant that he liked both prancing around in a leotard and watching scantily clad, incredibly muscular men clamber all over each other and... yeah. She had her suspicions about him. That he was one of the types of people Ben apparently had a vendetta against.

Rea rolled her eyes as Scarlett called out to Jerry. "What, you seriously know that guy?"

So, Scarlett just left. And was probably taking Jerry with her. Good riddance, Scarlett was nigh intolerable and Jerry was a generic stock high-schooler with delusions of becoming a professional athlete. Indistinguishable from the other several hundred guys exactly like him at Cochise.

So that meant she'd soon be alone with just herself and the self-announced Rene.

She had literally never seen her before in her life.

Well, maybe once or twice around the school; her face looked familiar enough. But Rea knew nothing about her. She'd never spoken to her, had never heard anything about her, not one of her friends even knew her.

So who the hell was she? She was pale enough to be a vampire, or at the very least someone who didn't have enough of a life to venture outside for once. Kinda short too, at least compared to herself.

"So, Rene, is it? Don't think I've seen you around before."
