Yura

At six sharp, I set off for the cafeteria. It was time for our final meal of the day. I needed to tell Seareanna my decision. Finding her alone again, I walked up to her.

“Hey, are you feeling okay,” I asked as I sat down at her table. Jumping she looked up at me looking a bit bewildered.

“Yeah, I’m fine,” she whispered in reply after realising what I was talking about.

“That’s good, about tonight. I’ve made my decision,” I whispered in a hush voice. It would be bad if anyone found out what we were planning.

“Really, are you gonna help us? I can understand if you don’t,” she looked at me eyes full of hope and expectations.

“I’m going to help you and the others, but you need to do as I say every step of the way if you want to stay alive,” I answered her question.

“Oh my god, thank you so much,” she whispered almost jumping out of her seat, filled with happiness.

“One other thing, you have to help me keep Hemrick and Fenny from tearing at each other’s throats. They almost went at it when you fainted. We cannot afford that during our escape. We need to work as one,” I told her.

“I can do that. You can count on me. I’ll go tell the others,” Seareanna said getting up from her seat.

“Yes, do that. I might have to get the boys first tonight as they’re closer. Just to let you know,” I called after her a she left me alone to eat my dinner. Tonight’s gonna be a long night. I just hope everything goes as planned. I have to give it everything I’ve got if we’re going to survive this mess. It’s hard to imagine looking around the cafeteria that in just a couple of hours this island is going to turn into a pandemonium. I sat there feeling kind of melancholy that so many people are going to lose their life today. It really is a waste and a shame. If only we had a way to save everyone. To have lost no-one. I know it’s only a pipe dream but still, I can hope right. I don’t want anyone to die. At the very least if I can help save someone from our fate. I can die knowing that they lived to tell our tale of what transpired here. That I was able to save someone.

“You okay, you are looking kind of lost there,” surprised I realised that Hemrick had joined me at the table. I hadn’t even noticed him arriving.

“Yeah, I’m fine,” I replied to him as we ate.

“No, you’re not, you’re scrunching you’re face up. You only do that when you are really worrying about something,” he probed me for an answered. Damn him. He knows me too well to be able to hide my feelings from him.

“I’m just thinking about how sad it is that so many people are going to lose their life today and that there’s nothing I can do about it,” I whispered looking down at my plate.

“Don’t think about it like that,” Hemrick smiled at me trying to cheer me up a little like he always does when I’m feeling down.

“I can’t help thinking about it like that. That’s the way things are. I can’t see it any other way,” I whispered almost in tears.

“Look at it like this, you have the chance to save six lives, yours included. Doesn’t that count for something,” Hemrick whispered looking me with such concern in his eyes that I couldn’t help but smile at him

“Thank you Hemrick, you always know what to say to cheer me up. What would I do without you,” I whispered back to him as the last of my tears that threatened to fall vanished.

“Any time Yura, you’re my friend, I’ll always be here for you. Don’t forget that okay,” he said to me as we got up from the table, having finished our dinner.

Parting from Hemrick, I went back to my dorm and sat down in my room and waited for the time to come where everything will be chaos.

I wonder whether we will make it out tonight. I was a complete idiot. I practically put everything onto Yura shoulders. What sort of friend does that? What was I thinking? I really am an idiot. I’m sorry Yura. I keep saying I’m going to help you but all I seem to be doing is making things worse. I really am useless. Perhaps she’d be better off without me. I haven’t done anything to really help her since this mess started. I might as well just disappear tonight. She’d really better off without me. The problem is I still want to protect her. I’m failing at that at the moment. I don’t want to be a burden on her. I don’t want to slow her down or get in her way. I’m the worst possible friend there is. Why that girl sticks around me, I do not know. It would be stupid of me to want to be more than friends when I’m lucky to have her as a friend in the first place. I really am a lucky person in that aspect. Too lucky. I don’t deserve her. I’m not entitled to her. She is forbidden as they say. Untouchable. Perfect. Yura is the most amazing, bravest, honest person I know. I could only hope she stays that way. I love her, I realise that now. We could never be though. She’s too good for me. Too perfect. Too cute.

I must be really bored today. She keeps on popping up in my mind. Perhaps it’s the knowledge of our impending doom that’s making me think of her more. Who knows? I surely don’t. My feelings towards her isn’t the problem right now. The problem is how I can be of help to her.

Feeling drained I flopped onto my bed sighing.

“I guess I’m going to have to just play it by ear,” I whispered to myself and rolled onto my side. That’s right, I’ll just go with flow and take whatever is thrown at me.

I felt on end waiting in my room. The others took the news of Yura helping us really well. Of course, they would. An extra helping hand is always good in these situations. I’m really nervous about tonight. In just a couple of hours we’ll either be dead as a door nail or free to live our lives. Personally, I would rather the latter of them. I wonder what I would do if we managed to escape. Who would I be? What would I do? What will I see? The thought of it excites me. This little island isn’t much to look at. It doesn’t have anywhere to explore. It has no forests or animals except us humans of course. We’d be lucky to see a stray bird. Everywhere we look, all we could ever hope to see is an endless ocean. There must be something out there. Something that’s just out of our reach. So close we could almost touch it. There has to be more life out there in the world. I can’t wait to see it. If I ever get to see it. Although we have Yura on our side, it doesn’t guarantee that we’ll win against the authoritatives. She is definitely going to be a huge help in this. I don’t think we would have stood a chance without her help. I reckon we’d be goners. I’d have still tried though. I would rather go down fighting then waiting for me to be killed by those assholes.

I really want the time to hurry up. I’m starting to feel quite useless sitting here waiting for something to happen. For anything to happen. I just want to get out of here. I want to get everyone out of here. Far away from here.

It’ll take all I have in me, but I’m ready to fight for the people I love. Let them come for me. I’ll show’em what I’m made of. I’ll show them what I can do. I’ll make them regret that they ever tried to hurt my friends, the people I care about. I’ll make sure they never cross me ever again. I’ll make sure that they know exactly where we stand. They aren’t ever gonna hurt us ever again, I’ll make sure of it if it’s the last thing I do.
