((Vanessa Stone continued from Five Finger Death Punch))

Between the radio in her jeep playing the greatest hits, or the insanity of the announcements reeling off the death toll, Vanessa preferred the former.

Nancy had killed someone. Vanessa had tried to lend her a hand, offer her some weed, get her to chill her ass the fuck out, but apparently the blue haired pop star had gone off the deep end and really had axed someone a question. Had it been done out of fear? Had she actively decided to fuck someone up? There were so many questions, but Vanessa was in no hurry to walk up to Nancy and ask.

She couldn’t help but give Jae a look when Alvaro’s name came up. He’d gotten off lucky, she supposed, with just a busted leg. Compared to Barry Banks, he was downright fortunate, and that just confirmed that Alvaro was downright trouble. They always did say it was the ones you'd least suspect.

The only good thing was that she didn’t hear Cam’s name come up in this twisted lottery, and that prompted a sigh of relief. She didn't hear anyone else from PC either, but she remembered that that only meant one other person if BB and Brady had had the (still totally bullshit) luck to be going on the other trip.

Well, it was probably a plus that Coleen hadn’t gotten herself killed, if she was around. She supposed that much, anyway.

The two neared the radio tower, Vanessa getting the lay of the land all the while. This area stood in stark contrast to the asylum they’d left behind, but it was still a few decades behind what was back home. At least it was something new compared to walking down Main Street for the five hundredth fucking time.

As the two walked within range of the small building that Lizzie had sought shelter in, Vanessa craned her neck towards it to cue Jae where her interest lay. She was pretty happy to see inside all the buildings dotted around the island, because what the fuck else was she going to do, but this one just happened to catch her attention first.

Straight forward as ever, Vanessa let herself in without so much as stopping to press her ear against the door. Lizzie’s cries echoed out as she did so, but that wouldn’t have deterred Vanessa in the first place.

“Yo, someone in here?”

“Hey, hey…” Vanessa said, crouching down near Lizzie. “It’s cool, don’t cry.” If Vanessa was someone who touched people, she would’ve given Lizzie a comforting pat. Instead, there was just an awkward empty space as she tried to find the words.

Vanessa had been pretty lucky, as far as people she knew dying went. Her grandfather had died a few years back, though they’d never been all that close to begin with, and that was about it. Now she was on an island where people were dropping like flies, and she was face to face with someone who’d lost at least three in one night. Pretty awkward when not long ago she had been glad that no-one she knew had bit it.

So yeah, trying to make her feel better probably wasn’t going to be as simple as a ‘There, there’, but she was where she was.

Harold, Lettie and Tina. Shit, what had happened to them? Knowing that might’ve at least given her something to work with, she groaned silently. She’d have to make a note to pay more attention next time, or at least make an honest effort to remember to. If people and people's friends were dying, it wouldn't kill her to at least give them the dignity of not being glossed over.

She was taking too long; she had to say something.

“I’m really sorry.”

And that was all she could think to say.

Vanessa turned to see who it was when Hazel and Jordan arrived, more out of habitual curiosity than any paranoia. She let her guard down when Jae vouched for them, the two not being the most familiar people at Cochise to her, but nothing was ringing any warning bells. More importantly, it gave her an opening to let herself up and dash away from ineptly trying to make Lizzie feel better, and meet the new faces instead.

She was about to get up when Lizzie asked about Tyler Yazzie. There was a name that gave even Vanessa pause; she was all about punk rock and the look, but Ty took it to a point where he looked just flat out mental. She didn’t like to judge people by their appearance, but when your face had more metal than skin it was hard not to.

But no, she hadn’t seen him so far on Whatever-it-was-called Island, and she let Lizzie know that as she moved to greet Hazel and Jordan.

“Hey.” She said to Jordan and Hazel, offering a simple wave as she took to Jae’s side. “Alvaro Vacanti happened,” she nodded her head at Jae, stepping in on Hazel’s question with nary a second thought. “sounds like the little fucker’s lost it.”

“The table leg’s my handiwork, though.” She smirked, still quite proud that it hadn’t snapped in half on them yet. Then came that familiar awkwardness as she wondered what to say next again. What were you supposed to say in a place like this?

“So, what’s been eating you two?”

Vanessa just went along with it as Lizzie thanked her for the company. She didn’t think offering her fairly shallow ‘there there’s’ would’ve been that helpful, but hey, if it made Lizzie feel better about everything then it was a net win, she supposed.

She also went along with Min-Jae and his romantic reunion. She didn’t know that Jae had a girlfriend, but then she hadn’t known all that much about him before yesterday anyway. Was that a twinge of disappointment she felt when the two hugged? Well, it was whatever anyway.

So then he shot off (well, limped off), and she was left alone with just Jordan. Unlike the last time she’d had a one-on-one with a stranger, no-one had beaten Jordan’s face in, nor did he have a busted leg, so Vanessa had much less incentive to stick around.

“Sooo if he’s going off with her, and I’m guessing you’re sticking with her too, I’ll just bail to find Cams? Cool? Cool, peace.”

She flicked a casual V-gesture to emphasise her farewell, then picked up her things and headed off. Jae was in good hands, and now she could get to searching at full speed. Between making someone a little less distraught and reuniting some star-crossed lovers, she was being pretty damn productive this morning.
