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!

(Jerry continued from "Then a star..,")
He tried.

He really, really tried to keep up with Scarlett but buying a shirt and dealing with an in-training cashier really ate through his time. Not that it really mattered, he was sure she could wait. She can sit for a few minutes on a bench or something, he didn't want to fuss her feelings because he was late, that'd sucks.

Okay.

Breath in, breath out.

Like a choreographed dance, he entered the park. Left, right, left, right. No mistake until now, he looked around, his head, stretching around to find the girl.

As he continued to walk in the park, an old woman sitting on the bench feeding pigeons, smiling when she saw Jerry looking at her. The time seemed to have stopped. He loved this park, this atmosphere was special. Almost magical, almost ethereal.

Where was she? Did she ditch him? She wasn't the kind of girl that'd do such thing. She maybe is fast and furious, but she can keep a promise. He clung to his plastic bag, his right hand twisting around the handle and stretching the plastic. She couldn't have left him, right? He knew he was right there, somewhere. She wasn't on the path, maybe in the grass then.

There she was, sitting up straight, searching with her eyes Jerry. It didn't seem like she saw him, if she did she would have run to him and he would have known she was on her way because of her hollering. He walked toward her slowly, trying to make as little noise as possible. He was about to whisper, but realized that his voice could be muffled by the surrounding.

So he moved a little closer, and closer, and closer, and closer until he felt that his voice vould reach her.

"Hey, Scarlett."

Oh man, please don't get awkward, please.

That was the only thing going through Jerry's mind when she spoke. She is going to talk about Danny, isn't she? But instead of frowning, she smiled at him and said how happy she was for him to be there. She was trying to move on from her relationship with Danny, obviously. It felt really weird to be there with the ex-girlfriend of one of his friend and that also happened to be a friend. She was a friend, he could talk to her and confide and she could do the same, that's a friend for sure.

She wanted him to sit beside her on the grass. It was just a talk, nothing bigger than that, just a regular talk with a friend. Nothing more than that. She happened to be very considerate of him, she acknowledge his overall slowness of reaction and quietness. He enjoyed that, knowing somebody won't push him in a direction too fast. She was nice company.

He laid his plastic bag on the ground carefully and sat down beside her, not right beside her, at about an arm length of her. He felt like a knot was forming in his throat. He shallowed once, twice before it went down his body until it reached his stomach. He took a breath in and said,

"Yeah, it does awhile we spoke. So you wanted to, er, talk to me?"

"I'm doing fine."

Then a long silence followed by a smile from Jerry. Scarlett was very sweet, she actually felt bad for not talking to him for a while. Not that really bothered Jerry but he realized he missed her presence in his life. She was maybe loud and hasty, but she still understood how he felt about things moving too fast. He wanted to ask something, but he quickly wiped it out of his mind. A "how's your day?" and a "anything good happened lately?" is a much better question a friend.

She was a friend, and he could trust her. That's what really mattered. Jerry's body relaxed, his heart slowed down and his breath picked up a better pace. Them being alone in this park, with nobody else from school, made Jerry feel much better about the situation. But Scarlett felt bad about how she's been treating him, or the lack-of to be expect. He had to correct that, she had better things to do than hang around him with her having a boyfriend and all. He missed her a bit but he had other friends to keep company with. It's not like he dislike her, just forgot how her presence soothed him. He needed to let Scarlett know about it.

"Don't worry about it, it's not a big deal," he said, that made him look kind of rude, so he continued, "but it's nice to talk again.'
