Wide Awake - Chap 5  
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 5

“No!” Lumpy’s heartbreaking scream broke through the thick jungle and even the other part of the search party heard it. Even though the scream was not sounding very joyful, hope jumped a hatch in Hayes. The first mate looked over at Jack to see if he had heard it too. “They’re out there” Bruce looked around to see if he could see anything, but to no use. They could only see a cliff in the direction where the scream had come from, but even if the others were there they would be too small to see.

Lumpy laid on his stomach, peeking over the cliff with tears rolling down his face. Preston rested a supporting hand on the cook’s shoulder while an eerie silence lay down over the island. Ann was trying to wake up Jimmy just a few feet away. The kid didn’t seem too badly hurt except for some wounds that were bleeding. Ann had feared that the impact with the tree had killed the young sailor, but he still had a pulse.

“Maybe I should let him have me” Ann mumbled silently and looked up at Preston. “Too many have lost their lives because of me. Or they’re going to” she was of course thinking of Kong and Preston understood that. “What would that be good for?” The young man let Lumpy grieve in peace and went over to Ann. She didn’t know what to answer to that. “We all came to save you. Letting that monkey take you just means all the others died in vain” Preston looked down as Jimmy groaned and lifted a hand to his head. Ann looked at Preston and finally nodded in agreement. “Gee. I’m not dead?” Jimmy leaned up on his elbows and looked at the two in front of him. “You got one hard working guardian angel, I can tell you that” Ann smiled sadly and pressed a cloth to Jimmy’s temple to stop the bleeding.

“Sadly not everyone had a working angel” Preston said silently and looked at the now sitting Lumpy. Jimmy felt dizzy when he stood up and had to lean on Preston for support. It took him a few seconds to understand what he meant because Lumpy didn’t look dead. “Choy” the kid mumbled sadly and had to swallow hard at the sight of Lumpy. He knew perfectly well what it’s like to lose someone you care about and the way Choy had been killed wasn’t any less awful then Henry’s death. The cook stood up and looked at the three others with a heartbroken look in his eyes. “We should continue” he sniffled and walked past them with his gun in a firm grip.

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

Okay, fanfiction.net is still not really cooperating with me, so you're gonna get another comment here. ;-)

This was sweet and sad. I liked the way you sort of described the heartbreak and mixed feelings and stuff. Lumpy being devestated by choy's death, but still realizing they have to move on, and Ann feeling all guilty and a little defeated, cause so many already died because they tried to save her. And I really liked the way you had Preston reasoning with her and basically urging her to go on. Sweet!! And I'm glad Jimmy's okay! *gives you a hug*
