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...

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! I call the bronto stampede for marathon as a joke ;D

There we be chapters on this story!

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

Chapter 2

Just when they thought, it weren’t humans coming after them…… “Bloody dinos!” Lumpy screamed as not only one venatosaurus came storming out, but four! Lumpy opened fire at the same time as Choy and killed two of the beasts. Jimmy lost balance as he backed away and a venatosaurus snapped at his arm. Henry opened fire at the third one just as the last one was about to attack Jimmy one more time. The kid pressed his eyes shut and waited for the bite to come. Preston threw himself against the beast before it could get it’s teeth into Jimmy. He knew that was not the safest thing to do, but anything to save a fellow human. Lumpy growled as he pointed the gun towards Preston and the last dino. With some kind of howl of pain the venatosaurus dropped to the ground, dead, and Preston and Jimmy sat up with their mouths wide open. ”That was close” Choy grinned.

In the distant they could hear screams and gunshots from the others. Lumpy’s face was so red it looked like it was going to explode and he gasped for air. “What are we going to do?” Jimmy had already started to stumble towards the sound of the gunshots.

The small company of five kept their guns safe in their arms as they walked through the thick vegetation of the jungle. Lumpy was leading the group with Choy right behind him, followed by Preston, Jimmy and at last Henry. “Can’t we take a break? I’m dying of hunger!” Henry complained and everyone turned to look at him. For the first time since the whole brontosaurus marathon, thoughts of food reached their minds.

They sat down between two huge trees and took some food out of their bags. “Damn! I lost my food!” Preston cursed when he couldn’t find anything eatable in his bag. He looked up when Jimmy handed him some weird grey looking bread. “It’s not much, but it’s food” the kid smiled friendly. “Hey! No complaining! I made it!” Lumpy spoke up, but they could only smile. “Thank you” Preston smiled back and he began to eat. No one spoke as they ate. They just listened to the different sounds around them. Preston tried to clean his glasses as much as possible on his shirt and it helped a little.

“What was that?” Preston stopped and looked around. The tall trees were so huge that they blocked the sun, letting just some rays of sunlight through. “Sweet mother earth” Lumpy’s cigarette fell from his lips when he saw a giant dinosaur some meters from them. “That looks like one of those… uhm… T-rexes! Just a little bigger” Preston whispered. “Please say it’s a plant eater” Henry had started to back away from the others as the t-rex came closer. “I doubt it” Jimmy swallowed when he saw some kind of animal hanging from its mouth.

“Hide!” Henry suddenly shouted, dragging the beast’s attention to them. “Oh hell!” Lumpy dragged Choy with him towards some ancient ruins and the T-rex slowly lowered its head and came closer. Jimmy jumped forward and pulled Preston with him behind a tree. Henry stood watching the beast come closer and decided to follow the cook and his friend. Preston felt his heart in his throat as he and the young sailor ran from behind one tree to another. The T-rex on their tail.

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

And the action keeps on coming!! Wieieieieieieieie!!
Loved the venatosaurus attack. Sure got them moving, didn't it? And it really keeps up the pace of the story too. Prevents it from getting boring, when everyhing happens.......too.....slowly...... Know what I mean? This is cool!

And OMG! They're being chased by a T-rex!? As Lumpy would say 'Bloody Nora!' Or something like that..... Man, you've really pit some action into this. Too cool! I have the feeling this is gonna be a rough ride for them..... But now it looks like the group that got separated from the searchparty, got separated! Where are Jimmy and Preston running? Why didn't they just follow the others? And I'm really wondering how on earth they're gonna shake of a big, hungry T-Rex........
