I fill my lungs with the glorious fresh air. Where did Amanda go? She slipped off to somewhere. I'll find her. I start walking towards the girl, Clarke I believe her name is. I head towards her and suddenly I clash with a girl, "hey, watch where you're going!" I yell, pulling my red hair out of my eyes. I stand up. She's looking at me slightly annoyed. I'm about to shout.
"Hey, you should watch where you're going!" A tall boy saunters over standing beside the girl. I can't see him very well as I still have hair all over my face.
"Excuse me?" I raise my eyebrows. He opens his mouth to speak and the girl interrupts him.
"Shut up Coby, I can deal with this!" She shouts at him and pushes him away. I roll my eyes and brush past them both. I can hear them arguing behind me. With an attitude like that Coby is not going to last very long.. Not here.
I arrive next to Clarke. She is standing with a boy. I believe he is the boy who checked if those idiots were dead. Finn? I think that's his name. She looks worried. Her nose buried in a map.
"Hi what's the problem?" I ask her straight up. Clarke looks at me with piercing blue eyes. No wonder that boy is hanging around her. She doesn't bother to ask me my name.
"We've landed on the wrong mountain," she says, "this isn't Mount Weather," I just realise that this means our food supply is all the way over there.
"And there's a radiation filled rainforest in between us and our next meal.. Great," I say sarcastically.
Soon, Clarke is busy planning a route to Mount Weather. I stand near by trying to help out with the skills I have. Her friend, Wells....the chancellors son.... Comes to talk to her. I strain my ears to hear. He says the communications are down. They don't know what's happening up on the Ark! Clarke doesn't even care! She says we just have to find food. Whatever. I should probably find Amanda. I spot Jasper making his way over to Clarke. He playfully flirts with her. Clarke's friend Wells violently pulls Jasper away.
"Hey!" I speak firmly but Wells just looks at me. My head snaps round as a boy comes up. I heard his name was Murphy. He pushes Wells, saying something about how Jasper is one of us. Wells starts to talk but Murphy isn't having it. Great. A fight. Bellamy pushes past me. And interrupts this 'fight'.
I turn and Amanda is just behind me, "oh hi," she says, "what's going on,"
"We're on the wrong mountain. Clarke here is planning a route and then these two started a fight because of Jasper," I tell her. She looks at me and shrugs. I can feel Murphy's glare. I guess he heard me talking about him. I glare back. He draws his eyes off of me and turns away. I sigh. I turn to find Wells injured.
"What the hell is happening?" I say loud enough to let everyone hear, "we've got to stop! We'll end up killing each other and that's stupid, just stop!" I look at Murphy especially.
"Don't listen to her, she's insane," someone shouts out. Some people laugh. I take a deep breath. My eyes dart to the boy who yelled it. My rage bubbling away. Amanda pulls me off.
We sit down, letting everyone else do their own thing.
"It's not your fault what happened to your parents. And you're not insane. Or mentally unstable,"Amanda comforts me, "well maybe a little insane," she jokes. She gets up and leaves me. I stand up and wander over to Finn and Clarke again.
"When do we leave?" Finn asks her. She turns to Wells. She tells him that they'll be back tomorrow with food.
"How are two people going to carry back food and supplies for one hundred people?" He questions her. Finn yanks Jasper and Monty over, "they'll help," he volunteers the two friends. They nod enthusiastically. Octavia appears and flicks her long dark hair, "I'm coming," she invites herself.
"I'm coming too," I say, firmly. No one objects. I'm pretty excited. I'm sure Bellamy or Wells will tell Amanda where I'm going. We get ready for the trip. Soon we're ready to go. Jasper puts his arm around me now. And tries to flirt with me. Me of all people. I push his arm off and roll my eyes, "come on," I walk ahead laughing. I can hear Monty gently whacking Jasper on the arm. I catch up with Octavia and we all set off for Mount Weather.
