"Vito, Charity! James! Guys please wake up." Vito opened his eyes to see a sobbing Lorde.
"Hey, it's okay." He assured her with a hug. Charity too was awake, she ran a hand through her water soaked hair. She shut her eyes tight, then opened them again.
"Ugh, what happened?" She asked, looking confused.
"You were swept away by a tsunami that your best friend created." Vito said.
"Oh yeah." Charity laid back down.
"Um, your not completely innocent either!" Lorde accused Vito.
"Guys, please." James said. "We just need to get rid of my sister."
"We can't kill her!" Lorde said.
"Why?" Charity whined.
"We'll go to jail!"
"Hey, she tried to kill us first, we need to defend ourselves." James said.
"I say, we walk for another day. Then we settle down in camp for good. No more moving." Vito said. Everyone agreed. Suddenly, Poco came running from the woods.
"Poco! How did he survive that?" Charity asked. The others shrugged. Then they set off for walking.

They finally settle on a place near a small creek. They set up another make shift tent. This time, Vito gather large pieces of wood. He set them in the creek.
"We'll leave them in there until tomorrow, then they'll be easy to carve. We can make walls for our tent." He said.
Charity was on food duty, Vito and James were altering the tent to make it better to live in, and Lorde was gathering daily materials. She was also organizing everything, and unpacking bags.
James lay a soft comforter on the forest ground and smoothed it down. He lied down on it to test it. He frowned, it wasn't very comfortable. Charity peered into the tent, her arms full of berries.
"Go into my bag, I stole all the girls comforters before leaving." She winked. James smiled and rummaged through her suitcase. He took out three more comforters and stacked them on the other one. Perfect. He smiled. He took out all the pillows he could find in all the suitcases.
"Ah, I see you stole their pillows too!" He called out to Charity. He heard her laugh. He counted them all, twenty-three pillows. Awesome. He arranged them all amongst the sections of the bed. He smoothed them out.
Maybe this will actually work out.
