Ali followed Crys to where Jake lived. She felt so numb she could barely acknowledge the fact she was moving. Her past kept flashing before her eyes... The next thing she knew she was waking up on the floor of Jake's house. Her head was aching, her whole boding was shivering. She didn't look at anyone, she sat up and curled into a ball in the corner of the room. She told Crys what she saw when looked at the soldiers. Her voice sounded weak. She didn't speak again, instead she listened to the conversations, quietly. Avoiding to look at the fireplace, she rested her head on her knees, hoping the shivering would stop. She was starting to feel ashamed of herself now.

She heard Jake leaving. She really wanted to know what Crys meant by what she said to him. She really wished someone would put out the damn fireplace, but she wasn't going to ask. Evin answered Crys, and Ali couldn't help but smirk at his comment. And notice that Crys chose to completely ignore it, even though she was clearly angry. Crys was silent for some time, when she spoke, she talked to Ali. "You got a look at him?"

Ali nodded, but quickly remembered Crys couldn't see her. "Yes, not his face though."

"You think you could recognize him if you see him walking around?"

Ali considered the question. "Maybe... I don't know. If I had something in particular to focus on... But just by the guy's walk, it's a bit harder."

Crys nodded. "I do agree that we should move soon. And I was heading to Blackpond anyway, after the two of you finished killing each other..." She smiled a bit. "Still, I can't really leave without Takei, she's my responsibility. You know how I am with those."

Ali looked at Crys serious. "I instructed her and Justin to head back to camp if they lost us. They should be heading that way."

Crys was about to answer when the door opened. Ali turned to see if Jake had found someone. She wasn't exactly surprised to discover Vilen was the one helping them earlier.

Crys sighed. "Well, I should have figured..." She nodded. "Never mind. I'll kill you when we get back. Why do I graduate people? They always make me regret it at some point. I should have let you go back to camp and face my mother. She would eat you alive after what Takei pulled last night."
She faced Jake and smiled at him. "Can you find me someone else, by the way?"

Jake put out the fire, winking at Ali while doing so, and laughed. "Have I ever said no to you? Who else?"
Crys ignored the comment, and shrugged. "I brought a girl with me. She'll be with Justin, heading towards camp probably. You remember Justin, I'm sure."

"Sure. It should be a fun little reunion." Jake walked out again.

Crys stared at Evin. "Switch places with me and see if you'll smile much." She nodded at Theron. "Are you two still planning on killing each other? Or can we dismiss that idea for the time being?"

She smiled then, and added. "Although, that might just cheer me up. If you find Evin too easy I let you take on Vilen as well." She was obviously joking, and Ali took it as a good sign that she still could. She didn't want to see Crys furious. She has seen it once before and it was more than enough for a lifetime.
