Day and Night
A Pink Dormouse Production
I dont trust any of em to be honest. Theyve all got it in for him. And me, most likely. Cant say I blame em. Whats it been now, twelve months? An he hasnt spoken to any of them, only to me. An that not very often.
Not that I blame him. Cant have bin easy, seein Blake like that. I didnt look but I gather it wasnt pretty. Face shot off, gapin hole where his chest shouldve bin. No Im glad I didnt see. And all that on top of the crash. Which came after all the other near misses. Which came after the deaths, her death. No it wasnt easy for him to stay sane as long as he did.
We were all to tired when we found the base, of course, otherwise I should have realised, stopped them all rushin in like that. Not that Avon wanted to go in, dont think he wanted to do anything to be honest, except maybe sleep. But we followed them anyway. An then I was too busy tryin not to throw up- and failing- to see him practically trip over Blake. But I heard him, and then I heard the others, screaming at him an then at each other. And I just froze, until Tarrant practically threw him at me an yelled at us to get out.
I think it was Soolins idea to give em all decent burial, an Daynas idea to use explosives. But then I wasnt really listening, I was too busy tryin to get through to Avon, when he jus kept mutterin about everyone bein dead. I didnt look at the base gettin' blown up, tried to shut the noise out of me head too. Then Tarrant yelled at us to get movin an I had to practically drag Avon.
God, but that mans a slave driver. Why he made us march non-stop through the woods for so long when he knew none of us were up to it, Ill never know. I just shut him out as best I could an I dont think Avon knew he was there at all.
It was the girls got us this ship. Worse heap o junk than Scorpio if you ask me. Which no one does. Worse than ever in that respect, the lot of em. So we stay locked in this cabin most of the time. I dont trust any of them enough to leave him alone much.
Hes almost lucid sometimes. Usually when he hasnt had to not look at them for a couple of days. He just cant believe that were all still alive, when Blakes dead. On his good days or, more usually, good nights thingsre almost like they used to be. Its always him that initiates it- Ive seen the way Soolin looks at me the next day- an usually he knows its me an not Blake.
One day Im goin to get us both out of here. Preferably before things get any shittier than they already are. Ive bin doin a lot of thinkin lately an I think I know somewhere well be safe. Now all I have to do is convince the others to take us there...
