Charity sat propped up against a tree in the dead of night. Watching out for any signs of scientists. Or Ellie. She couldn't understand why Ellie would be mad at her for something so small. It had to be something else, or maybe Ellie just had serious anger issues. Charity heard a snap coming from the tent. She stiffened up. Out from the tent came Vito and she relaxed.
"I can't sleep, so I'll take over." Vito whispered.
"There's absolutely no way I'm sleeping, you can join me though." Charity answered truthfully. Vito shrugged and sat down next to her.
"What are we going to do?" Charity sighed.
"What do you mean?" Vito asked.
"We can't just live like this forever! I've barely eaten anything but those stupid berries for a week. The only purpose we have of being here is that we're running away. When are we going to return? How are we going to return?" She shrieked. Vito put his arm around her.
"We'll find a way, I promise."
"But we can't live on berries for the entire time." Charity whined.
"Tell you what" Vito started. "Since neither of us can sleep, let's see if we can find some nocturnal animals to kill and eat. We can surprise Lorde...and James." He hesitated.
"Vito, I know your jealous of James." Charity.
"Me? Jealous? Never," Vito lied, Charity rolled her eyes and let it go. "Lets just get a racoon." Charity started to get up, but Vito stopped her.
"Not to worry, I got this." He disappeared into the woods. Five minutes later, a lighting bolt streaked the sky. Followed by a loud clap of thunder. Vito came out holding a dead racoon.
"No way!" Charity exclaimed.
"Yes way!" He replied and gathered some wood, while Charity cleaned the coon. About ten minutes later, they had a nice wood pile. Charity began to rub sticks together. She heard another clap of thunder and a fire was roaring.
"How did we not wake them up?" Charity asked excitedly. Vito shrugged. Charity roasted the coon over the fire and soon they had a healthy serving of meat.
"Yay!" Charity cheered. A couple hours later of Charity and Vito chatting, and Lorde and James woke up. Vito and Charity showed them their prize. They then sat down to eat. And...Vito and James were actually talking nicely too each other! And everyone seemed happy, no random lightning storms, (Vito) or anyone storming out angrily. (Vito again) Everyone was happy. It actually seemed ok.
