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!

(Keith Bauer continued from State of Shock)

Keith had calmed down a bit once they had made it out of that awful basement. Sure, his clothes were still damp, and sure, all he had for protection was a nail gun, but things would work out, no matter what random chicks thought. He didn't know how they would work out, but they would figure out something eventually.

Keith didn't see why he needed to keep a look out, but maybe it was the smart thing to do.

"Sure, yeah, of course. Holler if you need me."

He breathed out heavily to reassure himself. Keeping a look out was just a precaution. Things were fine.

It took Keith a few seconds, but he started to feel alright. Turned out that keeping watch was going to be super boring, just waiting around outside of a door and looking around. To take his mind off of what he imagine would soon be the most boring experience of his life he started humming a tune he had been working on on the piano, tapping his fingers against his legs along with it.

And then he heard that weird squealing sound.

He quickly spun around, crying out as his forehead smacked right against the glass of the window. From there he saw the horrifying image of Joshua being slashed by the sword.

Shit. Shit. He pushed on the door but it wouldn't open. Had it locked? Shit Shit. He looked down. It was a pull door.

He swung the door open, running inside, letting out a half-yell, half-cry at the girl.

In some part of his mind, it occurred to Keith that running into the library when he saw Joshua get slashed with that sword was a poor choice. That didn't matter though, as he was already inside and the girl was now running at him with the sword.

And he was probably going to die.

He quickly had backed himself up against the door and sunk to the ground, his arms up to try and protect his face. He was trapped and there was no way he could run away from her now. There was only one thing he could do, plead.

"Don't kill me," he cried out, his voice catching at the end.

Keith wasn't dead or even injured.

Well not yet, maybe she was just toying with him. It wasn't like he had the means to defend himself, especially after he had fallen to the ground like this. Peering up at the girl now he could see the bruising on her head and the blood splattered across her. She had probably been fighting with everyone she met. It was hard to believe that anyone would try to murder others.

But apparently she had, and now she was asking why he would dare to protect himself. Maybe she was deranged. Probably was. She did kill Joshua.

Keith breathed heavily and his eyes teared up as he processed that Joshua was almost definitely dead now.

"Um, um, n-not dying, please?"

Keith shuddered as the girl wiped blood across her face. Was she clueless about the blood on her? Or was she crazy enough to be willing to smear blood on herself to try and intimidate him? His guts churned at the possibility that she was crazy and beyond reason. If she was insane then he was almost definitely going to die.

Keith's body froze at the suggestion that Joshua had been the aggressor. Was it possible that Joshua had tried to kill the girl? No, they had been talking about trying to escape. Killing people and trying to escape didn't go well together. She obviously wanted to blame him for it though, maybe to make herself feel better, or maybe she genuinely believed that Keith and Joshua would do something like that.

And she would probably kill him if he fought her about that. People that kill wouldn't want to be called on their lies.

She yelled at him and he let out a sob. She was going to kill him. "I didn't know! I d-didn't know." The tears were flowing fully now and he could feel mucus dripping out of his nose. It was humiliating, but the idea of dying was so scary that he couldn't help it anymore.

Keith wasn't sure if the girl was serious at first when she first told him to get out. She had been behaving really strangely. Had breaking him down gave her the fun she wanted? She was either, sick, crazy, or both.

When she told him to get out again he got up on wobbly legs, keeping his head down to avoid making eye contact with the girl. He turned around and opened the door, thinking an apology to Joshua while doing so. But it was too late, and now Keith was going out the door. He took off in a sprint, feeling his bag bounce against his back as he ran.

He was gone.
