((Brendan Harte continued from Aaaaaand he's gone.))

Brendan touched the fence as soon as he got closer to it and he stared out at the ocean. It was getting darker. How he wished that he could just swim away from here. Away from the danger. Away from people who may distrust each other. Away from people who might be planning to kill. Away from people who may have already killed someone. But he couldn't do that. Even if he did want to so desperately. He couldn't let himself be a coward anymore. He had to at least try to find his friends. Or die trying as much as he didn't want to think of that.

It had took him a while to get to the cliffs. Although, he really wanted to get over to where the asylum was. He needed to take a break for the day. Maybe a short nap for an hour or so would help him get rested. What if Maxim was still there in the asylum? Maybe he wasn't. He also wondered if Alba was alright. He wanted to see her again. There were actually a lot of people that he wanted to see. Maybe make a group- No, big groups would possibly make someone paranoid and push them over the edge. It would be worse if they had a gun and started to shoot at people randomly. So that idea was out of the window for Brendan. What about three or four people? Could that work? A smaller group did sound safer. They could have each others' back, share supplies if they needed to, come up with plans of what they should do next.

Brendan nodded to himself and he turned away from the fence. It was the only plan that he had right now. But it was better than nothing. He sat down on the ground in front of the fence and he placed his bag down beside him. He hadn't realized it until now, but he was pretty hungry. He unzipped his bag and he got out one of the bars along with his half-full bottle of water. He grimaced. If he finished the bottle.... Then he would only have three left and that worried him. Would he have to trade some of his belongings with someone? Or would he have to steal from someone? He didn't like the idea of stealing from people. So trading would be his last resort.

Brendan unwrapped his bar and he took a small bite out of it. He found himself pulling a face. It didn't taste that good. But it was still food and he didn't want to starve himself to death. That would be a painful way for him to go and he didn't want to experience it. He chomped down on the bar for a few minutes until he had finished it. Then he took a gulp of water from his water bottle. He wasn't feeling that hungry anymore. Which he felt was like a good thing.

Brendan let out a yawn of exhaustion and he rubbed his eyes with the back of his left hand. Then he felt himself freeze as he could hear someone's footsteps approaching. Was he about to get attacked? Was it a friend? Nadia? Jerry? A bully? He didn't know. He just sat there, not moving his hand from his face and he was holding his breath. He was too afraid to make a sound.

The person was getting closer to him. Brendan had to lower his hand so he did so. Then he let out his breath. He felt like he had worried over nothing. Jonathan Gulley. He was a really friendly guy. Brendan had always wanted to be friends with him. But Brendan couldn't have done that at all. Jonathan was friends with Michael and Darius. Two people who enjoyed bullying Brendan and made him feel weak and pathetic. Brendan noticed that Jonathan was alone and he shifted slightly on the ground. Would it be okay to team up with Jonathan?

"O-Oh, hi, Jonathan...!" Brendan beamed up at him and then his smile faded. Had Jonathan been crying? Where was his shirt? Had he been hurt by someone? A would-be killer who got away? Or had someone died already? Was Jonathan a witness? So many questions he wanted to ask so badly. But he wasn't going to do that. He wanted to make sure that Jonathan was going to be okay.

Brendan felt concern bubbling up inside of him and he got up to his feet. Then he stepped closer to Jonathan. "A-Are you alright? Did something happen, Jonathan?" He asked worriedly.

Brendan had remained silent as Jonathan had been telling him what had happened. Brendan didn't want to believe what he was hearing. And yet.... He believed every word that Jonathan was saying. He knew himself that terrible things would happen eventually. He knew that there were people who were desperate to get home. He would like to see his grandparents, his father and Penny again. He just didn't want to become a killer. He didn't even think that he could kill anyone. Not even someone who bullied him. Not Michael. Not even Darius. He believed that no one deserved to die. He thought about the shard in his pocket. He couldn't use it without a good reason. Maybe he could just injury someone without killed them. He was clinging desperately onto not murdering another student.

Brendan's heart felt like it was tightened. Barry Banks was dead. Jonathan had witnessed it. And the person who killed him.... Alvaro. Brendan was shocked because he was sure that Barry and Alvaro had been friends. If a friend could kill another friend.... Then Brendan couldn't even trust his friends if he saw them. It was making him feel more frustrated and angry at the situation that they were in. But he would have to keep his temper under control. He couldn't start yelling at Jonathan. None of this was his fault. Brendan could never blame him for making the reality become more true. He had to think of what they should do.

Jonathan was crying and Brendan didn't move to pull him into a hug. He was afraid that Jonathan would push him away. He didn't have a clue how to make things better. Because he honestly couldn't. He just let Jonathan cry while he thought of what to say to him. Brendan had never really been able to comfort people. He decided that he would try to give Jonathan some sympathy.

"Jonathan, I..... I'm so sorry that you went through that. I don't want to die either. I also don't want anyone else to die...." Brendan spoke as calmly as he could. Although, he felt like crying himself. Someone had died and it was hurting him even without seeing Barry's body. "I think we should try and avoid Alvaro in the future. Since now he has a.... a gun and he would kill us with it. We should also not get into a big group as I believe that someone could panic and well.... Y-Yeah.... We should just stick together. I won't leave you, okay? We..... We will be alright. We can get through this.... I know we can!"

Brendan could feel himself choking up. He didn't even believe his words that much. But he was hoping that Jonathan would be able to calm down and feel safe in his presence. He stepped closer to where Jonathan was standing and he leaned against the fence beside him.

"....Would you like to rest for a while? I can keep watch if you want me to, Jonathan...." He offered politely. Brendan was exhausted himself but Jonathan had been through something more worse than he had. So Brendan was going to try to be a good friend. Even if they weren't really friends. He just hated how much pain Jonathan must suffered. Because of Alvaro. How could Alvaro do that?

Brendan knew that Jonathan would want to warn others about Alvaro. Brendan would have wanted to do the same thing. It would either made people avoid Alvaro or.... or it would make some people want to kill Alvaro. Maybe. Brendan didn't want to. Alvaro was a murderer but if Brendan tried to kill him himself.... Then he would be the same. The best thing that Brendan would do right now was make sure to keep a eye on Jonathan. Make sure that he is going to be safe. He wanted Jonathan to have a clear head. Even if he was in a bad state right now.

Leave? Why would Jonathan say that? He wasn't going to leave Jonathan. He wasn't going to abandon him. He needed to stay by his side and make sure that Jonathan will be okay. If he left Jonathan..... No, he couldn't think about it. He will stay. He made up his mind as soon as he saw Jonathan appear.

"H-Hey, I won't go anywhere. I'll stay with you, Jonathan. Don't worry. Okay?" He said as he sat down beside him as his legs were getting sore and he glanced at Jonathan with a small smile. "I will be here when you wake up. Also.... Would you like to borrow my hoodie? U-Um.... to cover up yourself. If you don't want to, then that's fine with me."

Brendan had stayed awake for a lot time to keep an eye on Jonathan and the area around them. How many hours had it been? He suddenly realized that the shard of glass was in his hood's pocket that Jonathan was wearing. He knew that he should be worried about it. But Jonathan was asleep and he didn't want to bother him. He could always tell Jonathan about it when it was time for him to wake up. It looked like it was the morning now. How long could he stay awake like this? Brendan could feel his eyes starting to droop. He was too exhausted to stay awake anymore.

Then a voice made him jolt up with a start. Was it coming from the speakers? No way. There was an announcement starting and he needed a moment to calm his heart racing. He needed to wake Jonathan up as well. They both needed to hear this. As much as Brendan didn't want to. They needed to know what was happening.

Brendan reached out with his hand and he shook Jonathan's shoulder as gently as he could. "Jonathan, h-hey! Jonathan! Wake up...! The-the announcement is starting...!" He said to him quietly and he could feel his heart going heavy. He felt upset about it. "This.... This is just.... I-I can't...."

There were quite a few people who were already dead and Brendan just felt like crying for them. Even the ones that he didn't really know. But he couldn't do that right now. He had to be brave for Jonathan and himself. And there were some killers as well. People were really desperate to get out of this place. Brendan just didn't know how to feel about that. And there was a danger zone that got announced. Brendan knew that they were both safe for now. But for how long?

"I....I hate this...."

Brendan had stayed where he was as Jonathan got up and rushed over to someone. That someone was Darius. He had hoped that he wouldn't have to see him. Yes, Darius was one of Brendan's tormentors. A bully. But he was also Jonathan's friend. Brendan couldn't say that he didn't trust Darius. Not in front of Jonathan. The best thing that he could do was just deal with Darius' presence. Even if he didn't want to. He didn't want to just get up and leave.

Brendan had to stay.

For now.

Brendan got up to his feet and he leaned against the fence slightly. Watching Jonathan and Darius. He didn't want to interrupt their reunion. At least Jonathan got to see one of his friends again. Brendan wondered if he would see any of his own friends. He had to believe that he would. He still needed to find them. And then what? He needed a plan of some sort. An escape plan? Be hopeful for a rescue?

He had so many questions that he didn't even have the answers to. For now he had to focus on the two people that were in front of him. One he trusted. One he didn't trust. He just hoped that things would not get complicated.

Don't get too trusting, Brendan. They might abandon you anyway.

He really needed to stop jumping to the worse conclusions. Jonathan wouldn't just go off with Darius. Leaving Brendan on his own. That wouldn't be right. Brendan needed someone there with him. Especially after hearing everything....

Brendan was just listening and watching as Darius and Jonathan were talking. So Junko was the one who beat him up? Darius really did get lucky then. He wasn't dead. He wasn't one of the people who lost their lives to another classmate. He actually thought that Darius deserved getting a beatdown. It was wrong of Brendan to think like that. But he couldn't help it.

He tensed up as Darius said something that made him feel annoyed at him. Lazy? Not doing anything? Who the heck did Darius think he was? Brendan had been doing something. He had been trying to find his friends. He had tried to find a weapon that was useful for self-defence. How dare Darius think that he and Jonathan weren't doing anything!?

Brendan was about to yell at Darius for being such an asshole, but Jonathan beat him to the punch. So Brendan kept his mouth shut. He let Jonathan let his heart out. Darius really didn't understand what his friend had went through. Brendan wanted to leave soon. He just wanted to go with Jonathan and then leave Darius on his own. No, that wouldn't be right. As much as he didn't like Darius.... He should at least tolerate Darius.

It was silent after Jonathan's outburst. Too silent. Brendan leaned over and he picked up his bag. He didn't want to stay there anymore. It felt too intense now. He was still planning on going to the asylum. He had to check to see if anyone was there. If they were still alive. Maxim, Ty, Alba, anyone else he would consider a friend. He glanced over to where Jonathan and Darius were standing. He had to convince them to go with him somehow.

Brendan took a few steps towards the other two and he shifted a little on his feet. "Guys, let just calm down and think about this rationally. Okay? Let's.... Let's not fight. We need to find other people and then we can try to think of a plan of what to do. We really don't need any drama right now." He was speaking as calmly as he could to diffuse the situation. "We also need to be careful not to bump into any killers. That.... That might be hard to do. But we have to try."

"I've already planned on going to the asylum to look for any of my friends there. So I will be heading over to there. I don't know what you two will want to do. If you want to come with me, then I will be happy to have you two around. If you don't, then I guess we can split up."

Brendan was feeling worse when Darius just insulted him for no reason. That sure was not winning Darius any points with him. He was getting more eager to leave. He didn't really want to be around Darius anymore. He shouldn't have to deal with Darius' bull. He decided that Jonathan would be fine with Darius. For now.

Do you really believe that, Brendan? No, you really don't.

Then Brendan was taken by surprise when Jonathan spoke up. It seemed that he had enough of Darius as well. Brendan had wanted to lash out at Darius but now Jonathan was kind of sticking up for him. Brendan was thankful for that. But he still wanted to go. Even if he never saw the both of them again.

"Well, I am still going to the asylum. Because I actually give a toss about my friends. Unlike you, Darius." He took a stab at Darius as well because there was no point in hiding his feelings anymore. Then he glanced at Jonathan and he nodded. "Sure, a meet up point. We can try to hole up in the pub or at the cabin. Unless those become danger zones. We can hide out somewhere else and hope that we will crash into each other at some point. I'm going to get going now. So make sure to keep safe, Jonathan."

Brendan then started to wander away from Darius and Jonathan. Then he turned to look back at them.

"I really don't care what happens to you, Darius."

Starting to be more honest, Brendan? Yes.

Brendan then continued to walk away, still feeling upset by Darius' words.
