Them & They

Them & They

Ever wake up and feel lost, but you realize you are in your own room? Well take that feeling and instead of being in your own room, you are in a white room, no windows or doors just an open bathroom and 9 others.

Introduction

The Field.

You are asleep, but you cannot open your eyes, the dream consists of nothing except you and a British male. His voice young and American, but his features were old. He had a cane, but it seemed he didn't even need it, his posture was fantastic and his old man eyes a soft brown.

In the dream:

"Hello, welcome to the dream world. My name is not important, but you may call me... Operator or just Op will do." He walked around you as you stood. The dream showed both of you, as if you weren't you, but you were watching you. He spoke as a faint song played in the background [Link at bottom of Intro].

"Nothing you should worry of about me. I am here to make your life a little interesting. I know what you are thinking, 'How can a man in a blazer and jeans make my life interesting?' Well here is how."

The entire time, you stayed quiet and kept to yourself whilst he spoke. He told you the rules [In the rules section if you didn't read it]. He told you of the events that may or may not happen.

"There are many challenges. In the challenge they give you a list of options and you must win the challenges. The challenges go on until there is either one person left standing or no one left standing. BUT... If there seems to be that everyone passes many of the challenges... one must sacrifice their own self in the very end. If not, you all die. There are ten of you together. Now let me explain your setting."

He sat on a patch of grass that you didn't notice had appeared out of no where. "The Field. It is a white room with absolutely no windows, no doors, no kitchen, no bedroom and one... just one bathroom. For the ten of you. The floors and the walls are florescent lighting with a thin layer of plexiglass, like I explained before... don't try to escape. The ceiling, on the other hand, it is made of drywall and other material, that cannot be said. Each day, you will get the feeding we provide and nothing else. Kind of like the short story, 'The Pit and the Pendulum'. The Field turns into anything Them and They put it to be. It can go from a white room to an entire island or an ocean, but keep in mind you can die."

He smiled and picked at the grass. "The challenges are easy. You are given a choice of weaponry, animal, and another object of your choice, bringing people into The Field is not a valid choice. Understand this. You cannot leave The Field unless the challenges are finished."

He stood up walking away. "If there is something you do not understand... Just sleep and I will answer your questions."

As he fades, you wake up. You feel warm as your mind feels dazed and you adjust your eyes to the white lights surrounding you. You look around you and you see nine other people. What will you do to survive?

Brittany shrugged and looked to the tv, then just above it. A news clip caught her eye, but she didn't want to watch it. She assumed whatever it was was bad. "Can i have some fruit?" She said.

"Yeah, sure. One moment." Like before, a crate was lowered down into the room, the wooden outside falling down and a key at the top with assorted fruits, two of every kind, including foreign fruits.

The Cook:

"There you are. Glad to see you are awoken. Are you taking the challenge in a few hours?"

Brittany nodded her head and watched the crate. "Thanks. And yes. I am." She walked to the crate and carefully opened it. She dug through it until she found a pomegranate and promptly opened it, starting to eat the seeds.

"Good luck. Tomorrow we see if you are able to compete."

A moment later, Honovi's bright grey eyes flickered open. Propping herself on one elbow, she carefully surveyed her surroundings: a large room with tables and booths scattered across the black- and white-tiled floor. Running her fingers through her tangled hair, Honovi jumped quietly to her feet and spread her feet in a protective stance as a girl with curly, black hair came toward her.

"Hi, nice to meet you. I'm Caitlyn." She smiled politely. "What's your name?

Looking the girl directly in the eye, Honovi murmered quietly, "Honovi." Her body relaxed slightly. "And yours?"

" So i'm stuck with the op? Okay, that seems fine." Brittany shrugged. She was trying not to be rude, but she knew that working with him would probably separate her slightly from everyone else, and she just wanted to fit in.

Brittany looked at her, interested, and grabbed an apple from the fruit crate. "Like what?" She said, viciously taking a bite from her apple.

Eden tried and largely succeeded in ignoring all of the other girls. I don't like the idea of having to pick a partner. I'd have to talk. Eden frowned at the thought.

She smirked standing beside Brittany. "Well... everything that you wouldn't want others to know. Have you not noticed everyone here has no secrets? People here have no secrets, giving motive to beat one another. If they don't... Then ... well you know.." She looked to Eden.

"Still not a word ah?"

Getting no response from Eden, Kristen persisted. "You don't have to answer if you don't want to. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard from Cook that your name is Eden. I'd like to partner with you for the challenge. Is that okay? I don't want to go alone."

Brittany shook her head and spoke, more to herself then others but out loud, "but i don't want to beat anyone." She watched the exchange between Eden and Kristen and thought to herself, but if that's what i need to do then i guess i'll be the best fighter here.

Reluctantly, Eden nodded her head in agreement to Kristen. Then, out of nowhere, she grinned. It was a short think, and soon she was totally expressionless. She curled up on a couch and watched the news seemingly despondently.

Caitlyn had noticed how the girl who called herself Honovi had taken a protective stand when she was walking towards her. Quite catious,but that's what I need. she thought to herself. She thought that it was strange that the girl asked her for her name even though she had already said it. Still hersmile became a bit brighter while answering the girls question. "Caitlyn,Caitlyn Conary. I guess that you already expect the question but would you like to team up with me? If you don't want to that's fine. You don't need to work togethetr with me after that either if you don't want to. In the end it's only an offer." She smiled. This girl was her best chance on surviving so she really hoped that she would say yes.

Brittany watched as yet another team was to be formed. I guess i just seem to nice, she thought. She sighed and went over to the fruit crate again. She grabbed a handful of strawberries and slowly at them one at a time, walking over to near the couch and watching the news as she thought.

"Caitlyn - Caitlyn Conary. I guess that you already expect the question, but would you like to team up with me?"

Honovi looked up at the girl, then around at the others - one girl was nervously eating fruit, another talking to the last, and the third was attempting to ignore the second. The girl eating the fruit seemed as if she didn't have a partner, and Honovi wondered why Caitlyn hadn't asked her. The girl was still rambling off about something, but soon finished and smiled at Honovi.

"Why have you not asked her?" she asked softly, pointing at the girl. "I don't mean that I will not be your partner," she quickly amended her last statement, trying to be polite. "I am simply curious. . ."

Brittay, without trying to, overheard the two other girls converse about her. She didn't choose me because i'm weak and apparently i'm average, she thought to herself, not showing she had heard them at all. As she finished the last of her strawberries, she slightly smiled to herself. Fruit was good.
