Gavin rubs his eyes tiredly. Being on the run was exhausting. [b "Is there anyone you know who could help us? Someone good with computers who could find the guy from the boat?"]

As much as he doesn't want to admit it, the guy is going to be a problem. [b "Whoever he is, he knows we live on the island. If we can find out who he is, and take him out first, we're safe for a little while longer. He didn't seem like a local."]

It should worry him, how easily he's slipping in to this lifestyle. The idea of killing a man wasn't causing him as much guilt as it should have been. Then again, he was willing to do a lot if it meant keeping them safe.

[b "I might know a guy back home, but I can't be sure if Luke has been to see him yet or not. He's a genius with computers."]

[center [font constantia Serena folds her arms. His answer may set her off or would make her shut down. As she listened she felt like it was her fault. She should've stayed away. Never caught feelings or try to protect him. He's new to all of this. Yet he's thinking he's Super Man or BatMan.]]

[center [font constantia [#af18ae You are new to all of this. Don't do this to yourself. You're not trained for this. Not like the way I am. Maybe you should go back as painful as it sounds. You can't take all the blame. I wasn't focused either because I didn't notice him...] by then she was playing with her hands. Her eyes were down, staring at the ground like a kid who can't face their parents. Sort of annoying. Love is pain.]]

[center [font constantia After a while she went back to the kitchen to munch on the crackers she pulled out. What she said hurt. It's not what she wants, but what else can she do? They do? [#af18ae I think we should stay low for a while. Recover. Think. Sounds good to you?]]]

Gavin had been awake for nearly an hour, courtesy of the damn birds that wouldn't shut up. Still, he hadn't bothered to move from his place in this hammock. Partly because he was comfortable, and partly to avoid an argument with her. He shouldn't have been surprised when she sought him out. [b "'Okay' is not exactly how I'd describe myself right now, but since I'm not being held hostage on a yacht at the moment, I'd say I'm much better than last night."]

He rolls slightly to look at her. [b "I lost focus last night, and we could have been killed. I knew something was off about him, but I still got distracted."]

He carefully extracts himself from the hammock and runs a hand through his hair. [b "I was angry with myself for allowing you to be in danger, even for a second. I'm afraid of slowing you down. I don't want to be the reason that you get hurt."]

[center [font constantia Why does it feel like everything is crumbling into tiny pieces? Again. She doesn't know how to feel. Grabbing a laptop she made sure no one was around while they were gone or in their house. She even tried to see if there was any sort of camera around the boatyard to see if she can get an image of the guy who held them at gun point. She needs to do something. Right now she's in a low point right now.]]

[center [font constantia Gavin didn't say anything to her after that. She was okay with that for now. However it's bothering her. She's conflicted. Taking a pause she went to get woke crackers. [#af18ae Are you okay] she asked him. Serena wants to squash it. Anything to get rid of the feeling and get back on better terms.]]

[center [font constantia Serena walks outside and leans against the doorframe. She didn't want to step outside.]]

Gavin sighs and lets his head fall against the warming tile as she steps around him out of the shower. So much for kissing up to her. His head is pounding and stomach churning with stress. He can't even be bothered to enjoy the hot water. He goes through his cleaning routine and drags the shower out until the water runs cold. Even then, he stands for another few minutes until he can't take the shivering anymore.

Stepping in to their room, he notices her in bed with her back to him. He's tempted to go up and kiss her and apologize but at the same time, he's a stubborn man. He's only trying to think rationally. So, he exits the room and heads to the kitchen to grab a beer.

The night air is cool against his bare chest, a slight breeze rustling at his shorts. The hammock is a welcomed spot, with a view overlooking the vast hills. Gavin collapses on to the canvas and stretches out, taking a swig of his drink when he settles. He knows he's not going to leave. He'd lost her once and he wasn't about to lose her again. But she couldn't begrudge him a bit of anxiety. They had enough problems without Luke's men on their tail. He's not used to this life on the run yet. He's barely keeping his head above water as it is.

He's barely finished his beer before his eyes drift shut and exhaustion claims him. The hammock continues to swing gently from his previous kicks, lulling him to sleep.

[center [font constantia Serena couldn't wrap her head around this. Why is this bothering her so much? If he wants to leave so let him. They could go back to living separate lives. Go back to hating each other... Right?]]

[center [font constantia Serena rand her hands through her hair. They rested on her shoulder when they got to the point. Her eyes were still shut. Her head tilts up allowing the warm water to hit her face now. The girl turns slowly to it could hit her back now. Her shoulders definitely needs the steam. Her hands drop only to fold under her breast.]]

[center [font constantia Gavin startled her. The poor girl jumps. Her eyes quickly opened. [#af18ae I was on my way out, so you can.] she said giving him a smile. Only if he knew his brother has tried finding her. It didn't work. He almost found her once and even held her captive for about an hour. [#af18ae He won't. Not again.] Not again. She scarred him so he should know better. Hopefully. Luke seem to like the chase. The challenge.]]

[center [font Constanta Moving out the way, Serena squeezes the water out of her hair. [#af18ae Just let me know what you wish to do by tomorrow night Gavin. If you want to throw in the towel you can. I may or may not go with you.] She then gets out, grabs the towel and starts drying herself. It would be nice to talk more about it, but they're tired and most likely say things that would hurt and/or upset the other.]]

[center [font constantia Once dried the towel was back in place. The girl went to the room to put on some comfy clothes and lay in bed.]]
  Serena / Simply_Random / 1y 235d 12h 39m 26s
Gavin was silent for most of the way home. His brain wouldn't shut off. Constant thoughts of Luke and what he was planning kept passing before his eyes. His brother was as slimy as they got. He'd never had much care for his younger siblings, especially for their safety. Gavin wouldn't be surprised if Luke had given the order to bring him in dead or alive.

When they get back to their house, he lies down on the sofa while she goes off to shower. His head was throbbing and he's positive that he ingested a few pints of salt water on their swim back to shore. [i Don't let Luke get to you,] he thinks to himself, remembering all of the times his brother had bullied him growing up. This was no different.

Hearing the water in the bathroom is the only things that relaxes him. Rising to his feet, he walks down the hall, removing clothes as until he reaches their bathroom door. Gavin doesn't knock as he enters, letting the steam of the hot water rush against him. The heat would be good for his aching muscles. [b "Got room for one more?"] he asks over the sound of water against tile.

He could tell that something was bothering her. She hadn't pressed him for any more information, and she'd been just as quiet as he had while driving. Stepping in to the shower behind her, he brushes a wet lock of hair away from her face. [b "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to sound like I was quitting. I just don't want Luke to get you."]
  Gavin Rollo / Kooza / 1y 250d 14h 22m 21s
[center [font constantia Since he didn't say if there was close or not in the back she took it as there isn't. She starts the car and puts on the heat. She's not dying for anyone.]]

[center [font constantia Serena isn't surprised that Luke knows a few criminals. Not surprised at all. But someone this good? That's unbelievable. He must be putting in a serious amount of money for Gavin to be found. She slows decreases the speed when he suggest that he gives himself in. [#af18ae What... I'm okay with this. No one knows where we live so we can stay at the house for a while. Make them think we left.] she said feeling hurt. Why would he suggest such a thing? It's like everything they done, everything she's done, was for nothing. He'll be an easier target. She can come up with a reason why he left. But the only thing that made since was him getting married and is on his honeymoon. That or a close friend of his died. She can make up a person. Make it legit. It took her a while to bring up the options. Her ideas. They suck, but she can think if something better within time.]]

[center [font constantia They stole three different cars and walked for two hours before finally getting home. She made them go slow in the forest. It is boobytrapped. She went straight for the showers and put on something comfy. She still hasn't wrapped her head around it. Maybe he does wants to go back? He's not used to running and playing hide and seek. It's whatever he wants to do now. Like it or not. Hell she may not even go back with him...]]
  Serena / Simply_Random / 1y 256d 15h 1m 18s
Gavin was shivering before they even made it to the first car. He was starting to regret his own idea. [b "He said something about my brother. The family put a bounty on me. You know how Luke is. He's got connections all over. I can only imagine how much they're offering to bring me in."]

He presses the palms of his hands over his eyes. [b "Leave it to Luke to have ties with crime families. I'm not even surprised."]

He willingly gets in the passenger seat and has to force himself not to slam the door. [b "This just got a whole hell of a lot harder. We're being tracked on both sides. Should have just faked my death."]

Gavin turns his head to look at her. [b "Or I can give myself up so I'm not weighing you down. It's bad enough having one person looking for you. You don't need my family causing you trouble."]
  Gavin Rollo / Kooza / 1y 257d 16h 21m 52s
Serena didn't know now what to tell him. She doesn't know. She doesn't know where they're at. She simply doesn't know. She copies him and takes off her dress. It felt good because it felt like it was glowed to her, but now she's cold. She takes off her heels and starts walking aimlessly. It took a while to find a car. But it was locked. She kept moving to find another car and this one was unlocked. She pops open the trunk. [#af18ae Please tell me they have extra clothes.] she says to him looking to see if there's a spare key. She couldn't find anything inside so she starts checking under the tires. She laughs finding the keys. [#af18ae We should go before the owner comes back.] she whispered to him. She's going to have to sketch the person he saw. She needs to find out who they're dealing with and fast. [#af18ae Hey do you have any idea who that guy was?] she asks folding her arms for a few seconds before getting into the car and starting it up.
  Serena / Simply_Random / 1y 262d 11h 53m 12s
Gavin is positive that his body has never ached this much ever. Muscles he didn't realize existed were now throbbing painfully with every move he made. It hurt just to lift his arm to swipe his hair from his eyes. [b "I never want to look at a pool again,"] he agrees.

He sits on the sand panting for a few minutes, trying to keep the nausea at bay. He could officially say that he worked out so hard he nearly threw up. [b "I don't suppose there's a store nearby that will accept IOUs. My cash isn't looking so good,"] he pulls sopping wet notes from his pocket, watching as they fall apart in his hand.

[b "I'm sure there's gotta be a car here somewhere with spare clothes in the trunk. Surfers always carry extra stuff with them. It's unlikely that they'd think to lock their doors, either,"] he suggests.

Hauling himself to his feet, Gavin pulls his shirt off, and his pants, to leave himself in his boxers. [b "Less suspicious if people think we were just out for a late night swim."]
  Gavin Rollo / Kooza / 1y 265d 15h 18m 12s
[center [font constantia [#af18ae I'm always born ready.] she says jumping in the water. It's cold. Nothing too crazy. She tried to make sure Gavin is in sight.]]

[center [font constantia She could hear music from the distance. Possibly from the boat, which is good because then they won't notice they're missing. Unless it's a cover up. What if there were actually innocent people on the boat who's fate just took a turn? Serena stops swimming to go under the water. When she pops back up she continues.]]

[center [font constantia What only took about almost two hours felt like a life time. They're going to ache real soon! [#af18ae I don't think I'll be swimming any time soon.] Serena said squeezing the water out of her hair first and then the dress. They need clothes and a ride to go home. At the moment she doesn't know where they're at or if they're safe. Her mind is blank. [#af18ae I'm starving and cold like a wet dog. Should we rest before making our next move? Oh and for the record I'm proud of you. I didn't notice him. I'm just upset that I couldn't take a few souvenirs.] Serena said smiling.]]
  Serena / Simply_Random / 1y 267d 13h 24m 35s
[b "Fuck, okay. We have to jump. We aren't exactly armed well enough to take on an entire boat of criminals,"] he moves to the window and yanks it open.

It would be a bit of a squeeze for his larger frame, but they'd have to make it work. [b "You first,"] he gestures to the window.

There's no sound of immediate danger outside their door, but Gavin wants to rush anyways. He keeps an eye out while she clambers out, following suit. The water is a cold shock to the system, but he'd rather be a bit chilly than have bullet holes in his body.

[b "See? I figured we weren't that far,"] he stares out to the faint lights of the city, still in sight. [b "They must have just shut the engines off to coast out here."]

He was feeling a little water logged and out of shape, but he starts paddling his arms, feeling the burn within a short distance.

[center [font constantia [#af18ae If you think that was beautiful you should see me sword fight. My father loves sword fighting.]] Serena pulls herself out. She peeks her head inside when he suggests swimming. [#af18ae Maybe we can. Are you willing to ruin your clothes? In more worried about this necklace. It's real and worth a lot.] The girl simply smiled. She pulls back and sits on the side line waiting for him to get out.]]

[center [font constantia Serena looks at the water. It doesn't seem like they were going too fast, but she thinks they're pretty far from sore. They could still do it. She's good at holding her breath. What can they do if they decide not to swim? Where could they hide?]]

[center [font constantia It didn't matter though because they need to figure out like now. Maybe even ten minutes ago. They're going to find that guy unconscious. They'll start mayhem. She's heard of something like this going wrong once. The evil and powerful covered it up. Only evil villains knows about it. Shit bit her bottom lip. [#af18ae Alright. Whatever we're going to do we need to it now.]]]

[center [font constantia She's going to look like a wet dog. Hair messed up. Makeup running down her face. The dress is going to be super tight and heavy. Whatever happens, happens. She's ready. Hell she may jump now. Get it over with. But it's terrifying her. Last time in she was in the water she almost died. Shrek was impossible to kill. It was like that scene from the titanic were a guy tried drowning Rose because he wants to live and couldn't possibly swim.]]
