((Lukas Graves continued from A New Morning))

Wandering around the island provided little help in Lukas' quest to get out of SOTF, but he and Zoe had managed to successfully avoid any confrontation since they met up at the hotel. Although the day seemed to be dragging on and on, they were keeping themselves alive, which was what really mattered in the long run. He scoffed as he saw a huge sign adorned with a smiling sun. Sure, the place might have been nice before, but there was no way in hell that it was anything worth celebrating now.

Right past the sign, Lukas saw three people gathered around the entrance of a large white building. He hid behind a corner and peeked out to get a view of what was going on. From what he could tell, a huge guy and a skinny guy were beating up some smaller kid. He twisted his face into a grimace as he thought about how messed up this whole situation was.

This game. This fucking game.

Lukas was conflicted. On the one hand, he didn't want to get into a fight, because he knew that was what the producers really wanted. On the other hand, though, he had a hard time convincing himself that he should just leave the poor kid to those two assholes. Looking for an answer, he turned to Zoe, making sure to keep his voice down as he spoke.

"There's three people around the corner. Two of them are beating up on the third. Looks pretty bad, too. You got any ideas?"

((Zoe Walker continued from A New Morning))

After travelling for most of the day, They had come up to a large, white building with a sign of a smilling sun

And yet Im feeling anything but cheery.

It's then Lukas noticed something, and hid at the corner.

Apparantly two people were ganging up on someone defenseless

Fuck.

He was asking her for ideas.

“Avoiding them sounds like the best bet.

They had managed to avoid people for this long, Should we just do that now? Doesn't look like Lukas wants to do that though.

“What'd you think?”

Holding a knife while welcoming new visitors might be poor behavior, but not everyone could be just as stupid as Nutjob and his schoolmate. Either way, he was right when he thought there were people behind the corner.

Walker and some unknown guy, who probably was from the other school. Given what he knew about Walker and about the unknown students, he assumed that Walker would be the dangerous one if it came down to it. The knife slightly tilted towards her direction.

Every time he thought they'd reached peak crazy, Monkey turned the dial up a little more, and he was about tired of it. It'd been weirdly amusing at first, but now the little bastard was just stalling.

Maybe that was the point. Maybe he had someone waiting in the wings.

Vincent said something about people assaulting them from around the side of the building. That was all he needed. Before the small boy could react, a rough hand seized the back of his shirt and hauled him up into a standing position. The paddle pressed to his throat as Vahka hissed into his ear,

"Now you stay real still and walk with me. Think we might have some friends of yours waitin'." His voice rose, calling out as they shuffled towards the corner. "Vincent, we happy?"

That's when he saw her. He'd laid his hands on quite a few back home, tracing along their subtle and not so subtle curves, taking in every inch of their exposed beauty, and while most of the time he stuck to short-term flings, every once in awhile he found himself captivated.

This was one of those times. She was perfect. Bold. Sleek, with all the right curves. Shorter than him by a good foot at least, but he liked them that way. She wasn't the prettiest he'd laid eyes on, or the fanciest, and certainly not the first, but he knew from a glance she was a higher caliber than most.

He had to have that sword.

More people were coming here. And Vahka grabbed him and took him to the people. So no chance to flee from them now.

However he achieved his goal: Vahka hadn't broke his arms or legs.

Still hugging his bag, he walked with the bearded guy towards the newcomers, hoping he wouldn't be used as a bodyshield by him.

And then he recognized one of the two arrivers: Lukas Graves.

"H-"

Gene wanted to say something to Lukas, but then he thought it would be wiser not to say anything at all. It would be better for him not to attract attention at him. Vince and Vahka should concentrate on the girl and Lukas. And the newcomers might be able to distract them that much that he could go away from that place. Or they could save him from these two college students. Or Lukas and the girl would try to kill all three of them.

Lukas was stuck. He didn't want to fight, but he didn't want to let some poor kid get beaten to death because he was a coward. He was hoping that Zoe would have been able to make the decision for him, but she seemed just as conflicted as he was. Maybe it was morality talking, or maybe it was the two big guys that they would be opposing, but this decision was rather difficult. He cursed his awful luck at being stuck at this crossroads.

At that moment, Lukas came up with a potential third option. He might be able to save the kid and avoid a fight after all. It just depended on how Zoe reacted. He brought his voice very low as he spoke, just like when he relayed the situation to Zoe before.

"Hey, do you think we could scare 'em off? I mean, we have intimidating weapons, right?"

“I don't think they'll be intimidated by us Lukas.”

Especially now that the skinny guy had just given away their position.

Shit

Skinny guy was pointing a knife at them while Vahka was holding the unknown kid as hostage, with a paddle to the kid's throat, he was staring at the big sword too.

He did sword fighting back home I think, he'll probably be gunning for this thing.

“Lukas quick, do you know the guy they're holding?”

Vahka came and carried the guy with him. Seeing as Zoe had a sword and moreover seeing the unwavering desire to grap his destiny in Vahka's eyes, Vincent could very easily imagine how the next few minutes would go down.

He lowered his knife, nonetheless holding it steady in case one of the two assailants decided to be stupid. First, he considered speaking up, but then he realized that it would be stupid to stand in the path of an avalanche and resolved to let Vahka lead the... negotiations.

Vahka knew the sword's owner, sort of. Zoe had been around school, and he vaguely remembered chatting her up about mock combat a couple times. Nothing beyond that though. That made things simpler. There'd be a hell of a lot less guilt dealing with her than there had been with Marcus.

The guy next to her was the wildcard. Vahka assumed he was another one of the batshit crazies from the other school, since he didn't recognize him. That was bad, since it meant he didn't really know what to expect, but it could turn out well. Maybe Monkey meant something to him.

He pressed the paddle a little tighter to Monkey's throat and smiled over his shoulder. "Hey there, folks," he called out, "you with my new buddy here, or just passin' through?"

Vahka was pressing his thing, almost to his throat. Things were getting serious.

So if Lukas tells Vahka and Vince that he knew Gene, he might get in trouble. And he knew that Vahka could not know Lukas, so it would be better for Gene to say that he and Lukas aren't familiar with each other at all. That way Gene could both confuse them and reduce the chances of the torturers to gain some information about him.

"Who are these guys, Vahka? Do you know them? If not, that'd mean there are three schools here! Maybe more."

So Gene hoped Lukas would show a reaction that was in his favour.

So Zoe didn't think that they would be able to intimidate the big guys. Lukas felt that she had a point there. Sure, they had weapons, but they were still just two fairly average-sized people against a tall guy and a walking tank.

Speaking of the tank, he was coming over to them, holding a paddle to the smaller boy's throat. Lukas could now recognize the little guy as Gene Steward from back home. Nice enough guy, but his interest in SOTF still rubbed Lukas the wrong way. Still, he wasn't as annoying and in-your-face about it as a lot of other fanboys that he had seen, so Gene was all right in his book. And now this giant slab of beef was demanding to know if Lukas was affiliated with him. He saw Gene sputter out an answer, and decided to add a retort of his own.

"Oh, him? That's Gene. Nice kid, but a little misguided. Pretty sure he doesn't mean any harm, though." Lukas tried to keep calm and defuse the situation. If he could just keep it together, then he may be able to get Gene out of harm's way without putting himself or Zoe into it. "I have to ask, is the paddle really necessary?"

So now at least she knew the small guy's name, Gene and from what it sounds like he and Lukas know each other.

So then why is he asking Vahka who we are?

Gene was rambling about there being more schools involved and asking who we were.

Bizarre, but then again weird shit like this always happens on SOTF, then again considering the beating Vahka was giving him earlier, he'd probably do anything to get away from him.

Still Zoe felt she needed to know why Vahka was beating Gene earlier.

"So, why were you guys beating him up back there?"

((Adopted Vincent))

"The degenerate over there decided it'd be funny to get the jump on us when we weren't looking. Or rather, he saw a tick, if you were to believe him. So yes, the paddle is necessary, and that is why we were beating on him."

Vincent instantly started fuming once they started questioning him and Vahka about their decisions, and seemed to be playing the degenerate as if he were the victim in this scenario. However, he had realized he spoken out of turn when he had wanted to let Vahka do all the talking, but the hedgehog and the girl had managed to push his buttons.

"I wonder what else is going to try to ruin my day."

He tsk-ed once he realized he had nothing to say. He was overly annoyed now. Really, why did they feel it was okay to be making judgement calls? As far as Vincent was concerned, he'd done nothing to deserve criticism from these people. He knew they were making detestable observations about him, and it felt like worms crawling around in his heart.

"If he's a nice kid, your school must be a shit-hole."

Vahka let Vince line out the particulars of their situation to the intruders. It fit the scene. It fit them. Vince's blunt presentation might make his side of things seem a little sweeter when his turn came around.

He coughed into the short, uncomfortable silence that followed the mini-rant and nodded his head downwards. "Your friend's a real piece of work, if you didn't pick up on that. The beating was just to teach him a little respect for personal space. Didn't even get to anything that bad. Yet."

The word hung in the air for a moment as he drifted his gaze back and forth between the pair. "His stock seems to be worth more to ya'll though, and I'm a pretty reasonable guy. So here's how this works: your friend there drops that sword between us, and I hand over your buddy here without any more trouble. He can take his shit and get right the fuck out, and we'll all leave happy. Or..."

Vahka's gaze narrowed into the brown eyes of the boy in front of him as his fingers clenched tight around the handle of the paddle.

"We finish what we started."

A brief twitch shivered down his arm and into his hand, drawing a thin, short line along the front of Gene's neck. Not a deep wound, or a dangerous one, but a spectacle of blood and motion as much for the camera's benefit as for the pair in front of him.

So...his little idea did not work.

That did not bother Gene much, as nothing worked as planned on this resort.

What bothered Gene however was that he felt some pain at his neck for no real reason, but torturing and threatening.

He eyed Lukas and the girl, and hoped they'd give them the sword. He then closed his eyes and tried to act as if the pain was ten times more painful.

But...it could be a trap. What if they just give him the sword and then kill me, Lukas and girl. Then Vahka would just need 7 more to kill. And then he'd kill Vince. That'd make sense.
