Wide Awake - Chap 1  
Title: Wide Awake
Author: CaptainLon
Pairing: None, mention of Ann/Jack maybe?
Rating: PG 13
Spoiler: If you haven’t seen the movie by now...
Summary: Preston gets lost from the rest of the search party. He finds out that he’s not the only one who’s gotten lost. Now they got to either find their way back to the gate and Englehorn or find the search party!
Disclaimer: I don’t own King Kong or anything at all sadly (Except the dvd, lol)!
Note: I’ve never played the King Kong game, but got the idea of writing a story lightly based on the game and the movie, but mostly on my own fantasy!

There we be chapters on this story!

And thanks to Jess for BETA reading this story!<3

Chapter 1

Preston and the rest of the search party slumped down on some rocks, dead tired. They had come to a narrow chasm. The sun was shining brightly and sweat ran down Preston’s face. They had been searching for Ann Darrow and that beast for many hours now without any luck. The jungle of Skull Island felt everything but safe and for good reasons. Preston watched as Carl Denham, Herb and Bruce Baxter walked around a huge stone and vanished from his sight. Carl was dragging his Bell and Howell camera everywhere and he was now lurking around filming instead of taking a well needed break.

After a maybe five - ten minutes break, stones began to tumble down the slopes and the ground began to shake violently. The first thing that reached Preston’s mind was ‘earthquake’, but that thought slowly vanished when Bruce came running towards them. Slowly sailors began to move to the opposite direction from where Bruce had come. Preston wasn’t completely sure what to do, but began to run as soon as Herb came hobbling their way too. Preston jogged after the others as everyone peeked over their shoulders to see what they were running from. Preston’s eyes grew wide as he saw numerous huge brontosaurus come crashing towards them. They were not just jogging anymore now. Some sailors screamed at the sight of the creatures and sped up even more.

In front of him, Preston could see Choy and Lumpy running side by side. He tried to think why on earth the cook was so into lighting a cigarette at this time, but his thoughts were cut short as the brontosaurs were gaining on them. Soon Preston was joined by Jimmy in the run. They sent each other a grimace when huge, fat legs past them and soon there was a huge forest of legs all over the place. Preston ran, jumped and dodged for what seemed like ages. Without warning a sailor in front of him was crushed under a huge foot. Preston felt like vomiting when he saw a narrow opening in the rock-face of the chasm. He cut through a whole bunch of running legs and ran right into the dark opening. He kept stumbling forward in the dark to avoid being hit by falling rocks. He could see a shadow running in front of him and heard footsteps of something behind him too. All of a sudden the stone walls on both sides of him disappeared and he was back into the thick vegetation of the jungle.

The person that had been running in front of him turned around and looked at Preston with huge eyes. Sweat ran down their faces and they both gasped for air. Preston recognized the other as a sailor by the name of Henry, although he hadn’t really spoken with him much. They both spun around as Lumpy, Choy and Jimmy came stumbling out of the narrow crevice. Jimmy turned around and looked at the way he had just come from. “Something’s coming” he mumbled, but the others heard him perfectly. Lumpy came forward and stood beside Jimmy, looking extremely grumpy with the gun gripped in his hands. “Those footsteps sound too heavy for a human being” Preston said and he lifted his gun towards the narrow, dark crevice. Slowly they backed away when they heard sounds that clearly did not belong to humans.

Be Nice and let me know what you think! =)

I'm feeling: okayokay

Hey, I'm not the first to review this time! Lol!

This was soooooo cool! Like I said before, I really felt like there was something missing after the whole Skull Island thing was over. Like.....more scenes! And more action! And here it is!

I'm SO glad you decided to do a story which involved more action on Skull Island. I've been longing for this ever since the movie came out. And this is too cool! You did a good thing by picking the whole stampede-thing as the start of your story. After watching the movie I was suprised nobody got lost. I mean, they were running all over the place! With big fat brontos chasing after them. I would've thought at least one person would get seperated from the rest. But strangely enough, that didn't happen. Guess those guys were really good at running and keeping an eye at eachother in the movie.But it DOES happen in your story! Yay for that! I think you've got a really good idea going on here. And it's definately original, cause I haven't read any other stories yet that involved the group getting split up. Double yay!

And although Jimmy's not really the main character *snifs* , Preston will do too ;-). Haven't read that many story about him either. Poor fella. And anyway, you've put Jimmy in there as well, so I'm happy.

Anywhooooo, I like way the got the group seperated and I also like the characters you picked to get lost. I mean, you've got Preston, Jimmy, Lumpy and Choy together! That's not the kind of group you read about very often, so I'm glad you decided to do so. I like all of them!!

But uhm.....what's happened to the others? Are Jack and go still on the run for the big steaks on legs? Have they realised there are people missing yet? And what are they gonna do when they find out? Are they gonna keep searching for Ann or are they gonna try to find their missing members? And how will Jimmy, Lumpy, Preston and Choy get on together? Are they gonna run into more trouble? Oh, I hope there's more trouble! Ooooooh!! Excited here! You'd better update soon girl!.

LOL poor girl. Writing so long comments for each chapter? LOL! But way sweet! Thank you! <3

Ok, this is kinda a spoiler, but my story will mainly center around Preston and "his" group ;D What Jack And Hayes and so on thinks won't be heard of... THAT much ;) And Jimmy and Lumpy and ***** will come in as bigger characters as soon as they get even more lost. haha
