" So, John, why you are here? I am here because i wanted to try something els, but you?"
He didn't want to annoy anybody, so he looked back in his book till he will say something.
When the other female and male were chatting about him staring at her figure, Juno only softly chuckled with a shake of her head and released the man’s hand she shook. ‘If you don’t want to be stared at like a piece of meat, don’t give people reason to.’ She thought to herself as she easily chucked her backpack up to her bunk and hopped up.
Juno was no weakling. Sure she smiled too much and was far too friendly, but that was simply because she didn’t have any real friends and wanted to at least find some. It didn’t bother her though, that she was friendless, no in fact she was perfectly okay with it. However, that didn’t mean she had to be rude like others.
The jump from floor to bunk was an easy one. Juno had soared over items much higher and harder with no problems whatsoever when her father trained her.
She continued to chuckle as others chimmed into the conversation.
"Is there possibly a shower in here? I could use the warm water and a good change of clothes." Dmitri asked, causing Juno to glance up from double-checking her pack, and looking over at the other woman. ‘Shower?’ she thought. Juno merely shook her head and smiled. ‘This is going to be very interesting indeed.’
She pulled out a large ziplock bag filled with green apples, then reached into her boot for a small hand blade, and sliced of a piece of apple and began munching softly; her attention focused on David and what he would say about the need for a shower on a trip like this one.
"Yes, but a warm shower I doubt it this boats rather cheap perhaps, you can get a good couple of minutes but that's it."
‘Well...’ she thought, ‘there you have it.’ She smiled once more, glancing around at the others in the room. She watched as their leader moved back towards the door and up the stairs.
Moments later, she felt the shift in gear, felt the slight sway of motion, and the boat’s movement forward.
“Looks like we’re on our way, everyone.” She announced, before she dropped back to the floor, landing in a crouch before she stood back up, cracked her neck, and turned her bag of apples to her bunk mate. “Hm?” she offered.
The very cute Juno announced that they were moving and dropped to the ground by his bunk perfectly. Ok that wasn't sexy before but this girl just made it sexy now! he thought to himself. She cracked her neck, which was also a nice touch and offered John an apple. John looked at her and said,"This is like Eve handing Adam an apple and assuring everything is gonna be alright. I hope this isn't a sign of what's to come!" He chuckled," No, I'm joking. But yeah I'll take one." John sat up from laying down and swung his legs over to the side of the bed and retrieved an apple. "Thanks alot!" He patted the empty space beside him on his bed and said," Well we got a long ride, wanna take a spell and chat for a bit?" And he chomped on the apple and smiled hoping there wasnt anything in his teeth.
Eyes gleaming with mischief, Juno offered John a smile, her head tilted curiously to the side as she studied first his magazine then his posture ‘Cute..’ she thought.
He chuckled, "No, I'm joking. But yeah I'll take one." He said before sitting up and swinging his legs over the side of his bed to then reach for an apple. “Thanks a lot.” He stated before patting the empty space beside on his bed. "Well we got a long ride, wanna take a spell and chat for a bit?" And he chomped on the apple and smiled hoping there wasnt anything in his teeth.
She wanted to laugh aloud, wanted to shake her head at his advances yet express her flattery at the same time. Nevertheless, Juno merely dropped down beside him with a sigh, a piece of apple between her fingers as she nodded.
“You’re welcome… for apple, I mean.” She turned to meet his gaze, dark eyes locking with his. “Adam was too trusting, and Eve was far too naïve; I don’t think that’s either one of us, correct? Therefore, our luck is far better then theirs, I think.” She lightly chuckled, and bumped her knee lightly against his in a friendly manner before taking a bite of her piece of apple. Her eyes shifted from his and scanned the others, unsure whether or not they wanted apples as well.
“So!” She began, “What brings you here for this lovely adventure, John?” She looked back at John as she reached up to hook a loose strand of hair back behind her ear with her pinky.
“You’re welcome… for apple, I mean.” She turned to meet his gaze, dark eyes locking with his. That's when John realized she had the most amazing eyes that he has seen in a long time. “Adam was too trusting, and Eve was far too naïve; I don’t think that’s either one of us, correct? Therefore, our luck is far better then theirs, I think.” She lightly chuckled, and bumped her knee lightly against his in a friendly manner before taking a bite of her piece of apple.
Before John could reply, Juno beat him to it,"So!” She began, “What brings you here for this lovely adventure, John?” She looked back at John as she reached up to hook a loose strand of hair back behind her ear with her pinky.
John replied," Well for one the pay is good, I'm not really a man of money but the world loves it. But I digress. Two, I love adrenaline and adventure so technically this is just a huge vacation to me! That and I might have the chance to blow up something with my Composition 4 that I brought along, can't really use it legally back home!" He let out a small laugh," I'm sorry, you must think I am weird but like my daddy used to say 'Life is too short to be normal," John winked," So whats your reason for being here?"
Dimitri had nodded at his comment then started looking through her clothes. She finds a pair of jeans that hadn't been torn and thought, 'After this I can finally have clothes that aren't falling apart.' She hardens her jaw before setting the dark blue pants on the bed and pulls out a ripped tank before a ripped once long sleeved crimson t-shirt. After she grabs the rest of her things which aren't in the best condition either and heads out. She looks down at her bunk mate them heads towards the hall.
Dimka sees the picture on the way out and stops a minute to give John a genuine smile," Good choice in guns..." She smiles a little friendlier this time yet still distant, "Maybe you wont be a bad companion after all." As she's walking through the halls she hears Davids announcement. Just after she starts turning a corner the lights flash out and she screams tripping. The young woman crashes into the ground hard blowing the breath from her lungs as she hits hard. "Nngh!! Fuck!" Dimka shouts having left her lighting back in the room thinking she wouldn't need it. She stands using the wall as support and starts to travel using it as a guide.
(OOC: Um.. I'm the youngest at 21 years)
While he spoke, Juno sliced off another strip of her apple, listening intently on what John was saying. She liked listening to people talk, especially about themselves; that way she knew a bit more about them and could decide if she wanted to get to know them better.
“I’m sorry, you must think I am weird but like my daddy used to say 'Life is too short to be normal’," John winked," So what’s your reason for being here?"
Juno thought a moment, lips puckered in a slight pout as memories flashed through her mind of her father demanding her to take the offer.
“There’ll never be a chance like this. You have to do it.”
Her mother was not much better, nodding in agreement with her father.
Juno had watched her parents a moment before simply shrugging then nodding. “Sure.”
“Well...” She began, a smile on her face as she turned to look back at John “I was curious. Might as well see what there is to offer rig-“ But Juno was cut off by her other teammate Dimka speaking to John.
" Good choice in guns..." Dimka smiles a little friendlier this time yet still distant, "Maybe you won’t be a bad companion after all." Before walking off.
“Well, she seems nice.” Juno nodded, unsure whatelse to say as she looked up, listening to what David said through the intercom.
“That’s fine-“ But again Juno was cut short as the lights shut off, a soft chuckle exhaling her slender form. “I hope everyone had a light of some sort. It was nice speaking with you, John.” She bumped his knee once more before standing back up and stretching. She moved to the side of his bed, and pushed to her tiptoes; reaching for her pack.
She placed her bag of apples back in her bag and pulled out a small lightweight flashlight, already getting used to the darkness. ‘I suppose I’ll talk to the others tomorrow morning.’ She thought as she maneuvered around the bunks with a t-shirt and yoga pants tucked under her arm.
She didn’t really need a place to change, being perfectly comfortable where she was, but she thought it polite to leave the room and find someplace else to get comfortable.
Juno stepped out of the room and took a left into a shallow nook, quickly changed into her comfortable clothes, and moved back into the room; pushing to her tiptoes to place her old items in her bag. Smoothing her shirt over her exposed stomach, Juno jumped back into her bunk and laid back, eyes closed as she relaxed not yet sleeping.
" Are you ok?"
In this darkness, he couldn't see her very good. Maybe she was hurt. Anyway he waited for her response. If he was the medic, he was forced to go everywhere the people were hurt... He had an idea. He got his phone from his pocket and turned on the flash light.. Now he could see her.
"I can help you."
He said and handed her his hand. He hoped he was not annoying..
He thought about announcing it, but nah who would be dumb enough to go on deck probably fall into the Ocean he grinned lightly at the thought. He wearily went back to his desk placing the sheets down, he maneuvered to his bed picking up a small history novel. He shifted adjusting to the pressure he was putting on his bed, after he was comfortable he began slowly reading squinting of course, the glow stick may illuminate the room but it's not that powerful.
He looked at his can-opener and shook his head. Why did I bring a can-opener and not a knife? It seemed anxiety blinded his usual sense of responsibility as well as his ravenous appetite since the day before.
He watched his bunk mate walk out into the hall, a set of clothes in hand. He frowned at how unsuitable her apparel were for an expedition, he hoped she had something thicker in that bag of hers.
Soon after, he heard a few seconds of white noise as the intercom from above turned on. "Sorry guys electricity is running low, I'm going to have to shut it off."
Amos looked calmly upwards as he saw the lamp attached to the ceiling, their only light source, dim and then cease completely leaving the team in complete darkness. He silently felt around for his torch in the bag but didn't bother turning it on, Juno had already done the same. He was accustomed to the dark, he lost his fear during training for the Army. At one point, well more than one, he would have to wait hours in places with little to no source of light; waiting for predetermined assaults or terrorist attacks.
Seconds later, he heard a scream and then watched as Aiden hurried into the hallway, moving blindly through the gloom. Amos hesitated for a minute before breathing in deeply, placing his torch in his coat pocket and swiftly following the fellow. He paced quickly to the woman's side, passing Aiden, and hoisted her up.
He got out the torch, switched it on and pressed it into her hand. "Are you okay?" He muttered carefully.
The corner of her lips turned up in a smile. She couldn’t help smiling at all the different personalities and characteristics that traveled along with her on their trip. Hands settled on the bed, Juno dragged her body to the edge of her bed, ears perked up as she listened intently to what was being said; soft Are you okays, and what happened’.
‘She should be just fine.’ Juno thought, as she rocked to the edge and dropped her gaze down to her bunkmate John. Her ponytail flopped down; dangling.
“So! Aren’t you going to help the sassy damsel?” Her tone dripped with obvious sarcasm, but Juno was still curious as to why he hadn’t moved like the other guys.
‘This is what happens right?’ She asked herself as she patiently awaited an answer from John. ‘Girl gets hurt, guy saves her, and he’s a hero, because people assume all girls are weak.’ She smiled at the thought.
John watched as Juno got up and grabbed some clothing and left for a few minutes. Amazed that she could see in the dark and not trip over anyone he watched the very nice looking... asset Juno had as she walked out. John was always blessed with being able to adjust to the darkness very quickly and right now he appreciated it. As she left the room John grabbed his surefire from the top right MOLLE pouch in his assault pack. He didn't have to fumble around, he knew where everything was because it was all in order and put in specific spots for specific occasions like this one.
John pulled it out and switched on the red light for night vision as he laid back down with his magazine and read the article about the very sexy M60E3. But before he could finish the first sentence Juno came back into the room with her tight stomach exposed. I was always a white girl type of guy but this girl is very sexy and she does it on accident! He thought to himself. She jumped back on her bunk and John kept reading.
Then he heard the tough chick scream and two guys ran out to help her. Originally John would have gone out but there was already two able men there. Too many people trying to help a small problem can actually cause a bigger problem. So he continued to read, he also noticed Juno was moving around on her bunk. Then suddenly a very cute head appeared upside down from the top bunk.
“So! Aren’t you going to help the sassy damsel?” the head said.
John just chuckled and replied while looking at the picture of the Pig,"She already has two guys helping her, plus I'll only help her after she yells for me specifically, especially after accusing me of staring at her very nice rack. And between you and me, I am more of a leg guy." He looked at her and winked," Something you have."
He chuckled again and reached behind his head with his right hand, reached into the same pouch that he grabbed his torch from and revealed two 8 inch blue glowsticks. Without losing eye contact with Juno he snapped them in his right hand, put one down, and chucked one at the door entry. The other he rolled over to the opposite side of the room. John mainly did it for everyone else because he knew Juno and him wouldn't have any problems in the dark. Still staring into Juno's eyes, which now reflected some blue from the sticks, and said,"Its a little more romantic when everything is blue huh? Its like a private little cruise."
He let out a small laugh
Dimka sighs embaresed about her accidental exipade. Her eyes had adjusted soon after the trip but she stood close to the wall for support in case anything else happened to her. Dimka looks at her clothes then the men, "Go back in I'm a keep looking for the shower."
"Be more careful," replied Amos dryly and narrowed his eyes, "Keep the torch."
He made his way back into the quarters before pausing where Aiden was standing, he nodded his head towards him before continuing down the hallway. He sighed as he slid his body into the bed and lied down, he looked up at the wooden base of the top bunk. He grimaced at how reckless he had just been, Amos swore he wouldn't take action unless thinking beforehand. Aiden had already gone to help, so how was Amos of any use at that point?
This day is going to drag on, thought Amos and sighed. He wished he had brought something to entertain himself, and he still regretted not bringing a knife. He slowly moved his head towards the other two in the room, his interest was caught by the magazine the man was reading. Amos knew that his Glock might not be enough for the expedition, he seriously needed a good assault rifle. He remembered the massive collection of prototypes back at the Army Base and felt like choking himself.
Shit, I so should've stolen one...
Juno couldn’t help but laugh at John’s statements. He was funny, she gave him that much, and confident; that was always nice. She watched as he reached into his pack, and grabbed two glow-sticks. She shifted her gaze to meet his, head tilted curiously to the side as he snapped both sticks, rolled one towards the door entry and the other, he rolled to the other side of the room. ‘Clever.’ She thought.
“It’s a little more romantic when everything is blue huh? It’s like a private little cruise."
She chuckled along with him about to respond with a comment of her own when the second guy stepped back into the room and moved to his bunk, looking rather annoyed. Juno didn’t know his name and she felt bad about it but decided that it would be made clear come morning. The other person walked in, and again she didn’t know his name either, but as he walked to his bunk and laid down, she decided to personally meet him in the morning as well. Soon he seemed to instantly fall asleep.
‘All right then.’ She thought with a sigh.
“Well as romantic and lovely as this is, “ she began, her gaze shifting from both unknown males and back to John “we should get some sleep. Maybe tomorrow will be more romantic.” She flashed a smile and pushed back onto her bunk. “Good night, again, John.” She settled comfortably, slowly drifting.
Her eyes shot open at the loud bash. Juno laid curled up on her side, both hands tucked neatly underneath the pillow her head rested on.
She didn’t move. Her breath remained evenly spaced as her eyes strained for any other sounds.
Seconds after waking up from a light slumber, Juno listened as one of the guys she didn’t know ‘quietly’ pushed from his bunk and tiptoed towards the sound. ‘Not the smartest thing to do...’ She thought as she continued to lie perfectly still. There was another loud bang and Juno tensed up before slowly relaxing her stiff muscles. ‘Sounds like..’ She allowed her statement to drift as she continued to stare off into space. ‘I wonder if Dimka’s still in the shower. Long shower...’ She smiled to herself, pressing into her pillow.
Afterwards he lied back on the mattress, conscious of the other awake presence in the room. Despite being still rather tired, he could not sleep. His muscles and bones refused to moved but he simply could not close his eyes. Amos concluded that he would just stay there and do nothing, waiting god knows how long until sleep would just fog his view.
(OOC: Someone else post something! >:[)
"Night beautiful, I'll keep watch." John said as he went back to reading. He was never one to sleep. He could run days without needing to sleep. When he did sleep he only slept for an hour maximum. He already slept on the plane going to London, he brought a stack of magazines and some books to keep him company. Luckily his Surefire night vision light was famous for lasting forever on batteries. So, he continued to read the articles.
John eventually got bored and took a quick nap for 20 minutes. He woke up and was just staring about the bottom of Juno's bunk thinking about the day that IED went off. He traced the scar on his face and thought about Matt. He had four kids and a loving wife, there was no way the kid who put the IED on the road would know about that. It just wasn't fair...
A sudden sound put John into alert mode and he clutched at his pistol underneath his *CENSORED* and slowly cocked the slide back loading a round into the chamber. He calmly aimed it at the doorway discreetly. He noticed the boy tip toe towards the sound. John put the gun on safe and kept watch on the door. He noticed the movement all around the room, at least there wasn't too many heavy sleepers in this room.
John whispered," Juno, you scared? Need me to cuddle with you?" He chuckled again, curse his flirtiness
She continued to inhale and exhale slowly, attention focused on the moving John. ‘Where’s the other guy and that one girl…’ She thought.
John whispered, “Juno, you scared? Need me to cuddle with you?" He chuckled again.
Juno blinked at the bluntness of his words, eyes immediately focused on the other man, as pale cheeks flushed with colour. She released a light chuckle and rolled onto her back, hands pressed back flat against the wall behind her head as she stretched her body out, and exhaled a soft sigh before answering John; gaze on the door.
“You’re far too kind, John, worrying over me like you do.” She pushed to a sit, legs crossed in front of her and her hands in her lap. “But fear isn’t something I’m accustomed to...” Juno paused then, head tilted to the side as a smile played across her lips. “Are you scared, John? Would you like me to cuddle with you?”
Juno knew she should act more professional but he was being friendly, and he seemed to be the only one -excluding herself- not stuck in a dark world of their own; keeping everyone at arms length. So she would be friendly right back.
Honestly that took John by surprise, he expected a smart remark or something along those lines.
He scooted to the side and said with a wink ," Yeah, Im scared of the dark, could you please come down here and comfort me?"
Dimitri rolls her shoulders before taking the torch like the man said. She appreciated his help but was embarrassed by her own mistake. In fact she was ashamed with herself over the fact that she had failed to take the time and study the halls earlier so she'd know what to expect around the corner. Suddenly she straightens her back making it pop as her shoulders go back. Now standing with perfect posture she heads into the shower a determined look on her face.
The young woman sighs closing the door then setting up her things for a quick shower. After she's door she removes her clothes and places them in a bag for her dirty clothes. Dimka enters the shower and turns on the water to feel it smack into her skin in a muscle soothing fashion. Her eyes clothes after grabbing the shampoo and scrubbing her hair clean. The woman washes off using conditioner in her hair as well. She quickly washes herself clean before getting out and drying off. She dresses in the clothes she had brought and leaves. Stopping by the room she leaves her dirty clothes with her other things and heads up onto the deck.
After a while of sitting there watching the water she goes into a light sleep. "Bang," Dimka awakes to this sound, "bang!" She sits up quickly, alert, and sharp eyes that scan the area. The woman frowns lightly as she sits there pulling out a few butterfly knives ready if anyone were to attack her or the ship.
