Sometimes it was fun to get out of the training center. A boat ride would have to take some of the same skills that it did to make it in the arena. Especially if they were on a boat. But, Warrick also just liked to get away. And this was the perfect day for it. The sun was bright in the sky and the games were done and it was time to get back to the grind before the next pageant would be needed.

A ferry passed from one area off the beaches to another. The air breeze was perfect as Warrick found himself up on the top deck looking out and admiring the water. But, it wasn't going to be perfect. The water started to get rocky, the boat tipped one way and then another. They were hit by another boat. The ferry and the other boat capsized and sent the citizens into the sea. But, where would they go.

Warrick was disoriented, but land seemed to be the best option as he used strong arms to pull him through the water to make his way to a nearby island. Surely, he could get his bearings once he was there.

Three of us. We were the only ones left, the only ones left to make it to the island.

Nautica was on the other ship. Warrick had taken some of the career kids on a ferry ride and she took the chance to jump in a speedboat with a guy who had been offering. Her blonde hair was blowing in the fast winds. It was amazing. She loved the freedom and the fear that went along with it as her fingers held tight. Her short body felt as though she could be thrown from the boat at any moment.

And she was going to be thrown. It just wasn't what she had expected. Nautica was doing something less than proper to the man who was driving the boat. This caused him to lose control right into the ferry boat. Nauti and the guy flew into the water, his beloved speedboat sinking. The ferry and all of its passengers were also in the water. They were going all different directions.

The blond turned and did her best to swim. And somehow, washed up ashore the same beach as Warrick. Her brow lifting. Just when she thought she would have a break from him. Here they were with the sun obviously showing it was late afternoon. And Nautica didn't really want to spend the night on the island.

"Well... doesn't this just fucking suck." Her arms crossed over her scantily clad body. She was wearing nothing but the string bikini she had worn especially for the boy in the boat... who was nowhere to be seen.

Shit, shit, shit, shit!

Arroyo knew they were doing down as soon as the water started to get rough and the driver of the other boat lost control and headed straight towards them. Of course, everyone knew they were going under. Arroyo tried to relax his body as the boat capsized and went under. He was thrown from the boat hard and his body smacked into the water and it felt like he had been stabbed with a thousand little needles all at once. He went under the water and got a little disoriented before making his way back towards the surface.

When his head broke the surface he took a deep breath and quickly looked around. There had to be something he could do, then he saw the island. He started swimming towards the beach and when his hit the ground he pulled himself out of the water and made his way to the shoreline. When he was there he looked around, seeing if anyone else made it to the island. Warrick found the beach as well.

He sat down on the sand and took in a deep breath, still shaking the saltwater out of his hair and spitting it out of his lungs. Then Nautica walked up onto the beach and Arroyo perked a brow. She must have been on the other boat. "What Nautica you don't like the company you are stranded with? Or is perhaps the idea of being thrown from the boat at high speeds while you were doing things that caused him to lose control?" He smirked and shook his head before kicking at the sand.

Warrick was more of the strong silent type. He looked at the three of them that ended up on this island and shook his head. It wasn't that they were useless, they could be helpful in their own ways, but he knew that he was going to have to get himself out of here on his own. Warrick crossed his arms as a hand brushed his beard thoughtfully through his fingers looking around at what was here.

There were so many islands around the coast of Four, it was likely that the other people on the ferry had scattered to the mainland, to other islands, or simply drowned. It was a tragedy. But, Warrick didn't much care. They were in Four and people knew that this could happen. They should know how to swim and well, if they didn't, it was survival of the fittest. The Games were the most excellent way to prove this.

He remained silent as he pressed his bare feet into the sand as the sky was getting darker and started to grumble. That only made a smirk cross Warrick's face as he moved towards the brush to see what kind of plants, trees, or animals were around. They had to make a signal, make a raft, or at least something. Or hope that a flare gun would float to their island.

There was nothing but a scowl across her features when she noticed that Arroyo had washed ashore as well. It was enough to be stuck with the silent victor when she was so talkative, but now she had a smart ass too. This was just fantastic. Her foot idly stomped in the wet sand before she looked over her shoulder at what the elder victor was doing. Her brows just scrunched. "I hope he doesn't fucking think we are going to live here." And then an eye roll. So signature.

"Oh yeah, Arroyo? I just dream of the day I would get you alone on an island." Her plump lives curved into a smirk as she offered an answer to his question thick with sarcasm. It wasn't that she hated the boy, honestly, she barely knew him. It was just that most knew of many of the other families that were around. The Atwater family was known for its own things.

It was the next comment that earned him an icy stare. "You are just jealous." Jealous of the fast and expensive boat that was not at the bottom of the ocean? Sure, that was only the beginning. But, Nautica popped her hip out as she watched Warrick disappear into the jungle forest of the island. "Perfect. What the fuck are we going to do?" She said as she had a chill of a shiver run through her body shaking for a moment before she could steady herself.

Warrick walked away from them, it was obvious that he had something on his mind on how to get off the damn island. He had a sister to think about, his family's boat and everything else back on the mainland, there had to be a way back there. Building a raft, a signal fire or at least find some way to collect fresh water so if they had to stay on the island longer than expected they would have something to drink. "No one wants to leave on a deserted island with only three people. How would we repopulate?" He laughed and pushed himself to his feet and watched as Warrick went to do whatever it was he was going to do.

"Yeah? I can imagine, I mean who could refuse my smooth skin and handsome face. Oh but wait, I don't have a speedboat..." He smirked right back at her and threw his own sarcasm her way and shrugged his shoulders. "We have to find a way off the island, perhaps he's just looking for a way off?"

He laughed and shook his head. "Jealous...? Of that overdone asshole driving the speedboat? He can't even keep control of his engine..." He kicked at the sand and looked up at the sky. "We have to get off this island, you already said it yourself, we can't live here."

"No one is going to leave a victor on an island." She just rolled her eyes and crossed her arms over her chest tighter as she looked out to sea. There was still pieces of the boats floating around and all the things that came along with a bunch of people falling into the water. Now, if a few pieces of clothing would wash up, or a towel, or anything... that would be fantastic.

"No, no, no. Roy. I am never having kids. Don't even joke." She could have repeated what she had said before about the fact that at least they were on the same island as the victor. They wouldn't be left behind and they weren't terribly far away from land. People would come for them. They just had to wait. There had to be a distress signal.

Her smirked tightened as she shook her head at Arroyo. "Ha. Ha. His engine was just fine. You don't even know what you are talking about. You've never had the pleasure." Nautica sneered as she looked out at the waves crashing on the water again. This was another reason why she would never have survived the games if she would have gone in. Nautica was waiting to be rescued. Warrick was searching for a fix. What would Arroyo do?

"When do you turn Nineteen? Are you eligible for the 123rd? Maybe you should be proving your fucking self right now."
