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 have now gotten the King Kong game and I got the idea of writing a story lightly based on the game and the movie, but mostly on my own fantasy!

Chapter 6

“How big can an island get?” The small group had been walking for hours when Preston felt a strong wind hit his face. Luckily in the past hours they had only come across some insects and some weird looking creatures that were more afraid of them then they were of those. They slowly came out of the jungle and came to some huge caves in some rock face. “We must be close to the ocean” Jimmy mumbled tiredly and walked into the cave. Soon they found out that the cave was more of a tunnel and the strong wind was in fact coming from the ocean.

“The ship!” Preston could finally feel joy in him when they came out of the tunnel and saw The Venture in the distance just where they left her. The wind was blowing even stronger here and waves smashed against the cliffs. “The fact that we are far from the bottom may be a problem. There must be some way down, but we need a whaler to get to the ship too…” Lumpy looked over the cliff they stood on and saw that it was a long, long way down.. The joy that had been tickling in Preston's tummy was now replaced with annoyance. The ship was still too far away.

The group stood there for a while, watching the mysterious cliffs, the huge stones in the sea shaped as skulls and the ship that had never looked more beautiful and safe. There were lights on the ship and they could see some very small forms of people on the deck. Although the wild landscape here by the sea gave them chills they couldn’t help being amazed by the beauty of it. “Carl would have loved to get this on film” Preston mumbled and stepped a little away from Lumpy when he received a dangerous look from him. “I hope his bloody camera is as much a ruin as this place” the cook spat and walked away along a narrow road along the sea. Preston sent Jimmy and Ann a scared look before he followed Lumpy. Ann took hold of Jimmy’s arm and they walked after them together.

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

Still liking this! How many more chapters do you have left? Wanna read more. Like about what else they're gonna run into. Cause there's gonna be more trouble right? I like trouble! ;-D

Pretty amazing that after all that's happened so far, Preton still manages to think about how Carl would feel about everything. He'd film everything, haha! I also like the 'hatred' Lumpy's feeling towards Carl. Guess he's really upset about Choy's death, huh? And he needs to blame someone, so why not Carl? Everyone blames him already, haha!

But do you have more action coming? Cause I'd love to see even more action! Action's gooooood!
