The sun shines through the small opening of the tent. I roll over and finally sit up. It's already pretty loud in camp. I clamber out of the tent. Amanda doesn't seem to be around? I didn't bother to put my jumper on. I wander down through camp. I can't see Monty or Jasper either? I climb into the dropship. I spot Clarke. She's rubbing a cloth on someone's head, their side fringe pushed aside. Wait a second.. That's Amanda! I dash over knocking a boy over. He shouts a complaint as he topples into the ground. Whoops...
"Clarke!" I exclaim, "what happened?" I demand. Clarke looks up at me. She seems startled and pretty pissed..
"She walked into a tree," she answers me, straightforward. Oh. Well done, Amanda. Clarke strides off. Amanda has an unhealthy bruise on her forehead. I sigh and sit down beside her. The boy I crashed into comes over to me. He has dark hair and tanned skin. He raises his eyebrows at me.
"Jaxen," he says, holding his hand out. I shake it.
"Emily," I tell him. He nods. He looks at me.
"Hey you're Amanda's friend?" Jaxen asks.
"More like sister," I correct, "and you are?" I question. Who is this boy? Wait a second! He's the one that started a fight when Amanda complained about Eilidh. So he's Eilidh's bitch?
"A friend," he gives me a cocky smirk. Hm.. I get up.
"Shout me when she wakes?" I call over my shoulder.
"Sure," He yells back at me. I skip out of the dropship. The bitch Eilidh appears.
"Oh hi, did you want to run away again?" I take a jab at her. She throws a glare and ignores me. She walks off. Whatever.
I squeak, as I sprawl onto the ground. Monty helps me up. I drag hair from my dirty face. He looks at me apologetically. I can tell from his face that something is wrong.
"Are you okay?" I ask him putting my hand on his shoulder.
"I'm just looking for a new bed. You can ask Jasper why," he tells me. Jasper? What? Monty storms past me. Wow.
I'm about to go find Jasper when I hear shouting coming from the big metal dropship. I head over there. I lift the cloth curtain and step inside, to find a sight that shocks me more than anything.
Bellamy stands with his lips on Amanda's cheek. I only now realise she has her hand clamped around his neck. He pulls away and pushes past me. Her look is priceless. She looks like she's seen a ghost. Jaxen turns to her and they share a confused look. In fact.. The resemblance between them is uncanny. They share a hug. Wait what the hell is happening here? Eilidh shoves past me, leaving me to slam against the wall. Thanks! I doubt she even saw me. She storms into the dropship. She stops dead when she sees Jaxen and Amanda. They break up the hug and spot her. I slip out of the dropship.. I'm pretty sure this is something that is none of my business. Until Amanda gets hurt. Then it's my business...
