"Let me go James" I told him. "Not until you say why you were following us, and why you spy on El Jacko" I knew he meant Jack with El Jacko. I smiled. "Are you gonna tell me?" I pulled my arm back. "Only if you ask nicely; now let me go." Sawyer let me go, you could see his fingers in my arm.
Charlie didn't sleep well that night. A several times I pushed him away because he almost laid upon me, again. I decided to sleep over at Jack's old tent. I left a note;
Try not to lay on me tomorrow night
"Does anyone see Tiffany?" Jack asked the next morning to everybody. "What's the problem, Doc?" Sawyer said smiling. "Have you seen Tiffany, no jokes right now. I'm afraid she took off to find Tom" Jack said worried. Charlie walked by "Are you looking for Tiffany? She left me this note last night" He showed the note to Jack.
"Do you know where she is?" Jack asked. Charlie shook his head. "Isn't she at the Hatch" Jack looked into the jungle. "I don't think so, I just finished my shift." Sawyer looked at Jack's old tent. "I think I know where she is." He walked to the tent and Charlie and Jack followed him.
I woke up and look right in to their faces. "Well, what a happy good morning. Did you brought me breakfast?" I smiled. "Why did you sleep here?" Jack asked. I looked at Charlie. "Because Mr. Driveshaft here had a nightmare and slept not that quiet" I rubbed my eyes. Jack looked worried "Did I miss something?"
Jack send Sawyer and Charlie away and sat next to me. "Are you okay?" I sighed. "Why does every conversation start with the same question?; Yeah, Tom kidnaped me and almost killed me, Ethan wanted to kill me, I think the Others don't like me. I almost blew up at the Black Rock. There is this freaky smoke monster who probably is going to kill me, too. Besides that, I'm fine. You?"
"Yeah, I think I'm fine too, but what do you mean with smoke monster? Did you see that security system" Jack asked. I nodded. "Yup, When Eko, Charlie and I were going to the plane." I said. "You could be dead!" he yelled. "I don't think so; I was up in a tree, I forgot I am afraid of heights. Only Eko was on the ground.
"I'm going to talk to Sawyer. I see you later, El Jacko" I said. Jack laughed "Are you gonna use nicknames too?" I shook my head. "No, I just like this one." I walked toward Sawyer, who was playing cards with Hurley. "Hey, can I join you?" Hurley nodded.
"Well, well, look who's off the laundromat? Well, go on. I'm sure you've got a load you need to drop in, don't you. Jethro?" Sawyer looked at me. "I'm kind of waiting for my moment" Hurley said to Sawyer. Sawyer stood up. "Well, your moment is now, Hoss. Hey, Libby!" he yelled at Libby and ducked inside his tent and pulled me with him.
"Hey yourself" we heard Libby saying. I laid upon Sawyer. I looked in his eyes. "You Jackass" I laughed and rolled off him. We both sat up. "Listen, he is crushing on her since she arrived. I just helped him" Sawyer looked outside. "He's gone, let's go" We went outside. Kate saw us and looked at us with a confused look. Sawyer and I looked back and then looked at each other. "I don't want to know what she is thinking right now" I said. We both laughed.
Charlie had some trouble with Claire. He stole Aaron and he told me he had this weird dream. Locke said Claire needed time, but Charlie didn't agree with that. He wanted to talk to her right now. I was about to walk toward Claire and Charlie, but Sawyer stopped me. "Don't" he said.
Locke came toward me "Can you take my shift at the Hatch?" he asked. I thought he was asking Sawyer, but he was asking me. "Of course." I said confused and walked to the Hatch.
I saw Hurley and Libby doing laundry and I gave Hurley an thumbs up. He used to give me them all the time, when I was with Boone. "Hello.. Tiffany was it right?" Libby said when I as a little further. I turned around and nodded. "Libby, right?" She smiled "Yes, nice to really meet you" we shook hands. "I have button-duty." And I pointer with my thumb behind me. "See you later." I walked away.
Kate entered the Hatch. "What's up with you an Sawyer?" she asked while I was entering the code for the thousandth time. "Nothing, we were having fun" Kate mumbled something "Having fun, right."
"Kate, there is nothing between me and Sawyer, besides he is too old for me" I left the computer room and looked at the books in the bookshelf. "Do you like him?" I asked while grabbing a book. "Sawyer? I don't know." I sat down on the couch. "I mean Jack; he likes you. He told me" I smiled and read the first page, then I closed the book.
Kate was quiet. "Never mind" I said. "I'm in the same position right now; Do I like Charlie?; Yes, but I'm not over Boone, yet. Understand me?" Kate nodded. "You know, you're too adult for you age" she said. "I'm going to Claire, you will be alone for a few hours. Can you handle that?" she asked and I nodded "Sure." Kate left the Hatch.
I decided to write some songs. I had left my notebook somewhere here. I started looking. I found it right next to the bunk bed. I opened it and read some of my previous songs.
I grabbed the guitar, tuned it and started playing. I was in the middle of my new song when Sawyer appeared. I stopped playing and put the guitar away. "You don't have to stop playing when I come" he smiled and grabbed my songbook. "Hey! Those ar private, James." I tried to get is back. "Patrick, Boone, Boone, Charlie, Boone, Boone, Jack, Sawyer." He stopped flipping the pages and started reading. "You wrote this about me?" I grabbed my songbook back "Explain it" he sat down next to me.
"After Boone died, you were so sweet, and then you took off with that raft. So I wrote a song about you, nothing else." I said. "And no, I'm not gonna play it for you. "why not, I won't laugh." He said. "Yes, you will. It's a silly song. "A song called Why don't you stay I don't call silly." He said. "Fine!" and I started playing
It's been awhile since I've really cared
About something I never knew was there
And I tried, oh how I tried
But now I gotta see you go and walk away
Why don't you stay?
After the song he smiled. "Why did you stay?" he said. I didn't understand him. "You could come with us. Michael told me he had place for one more. I wanted to tell you, but you were going to the Black Rock with Jack & co." I wanted to say something, but the alarm sounded. Like some people would said Save by the bell or in this case the alarm.
Sawyer took the other shift and I went back to the beach. "Tiffany, can you give us a hand? Charlie didn't want to. He acted strangely" I helped him and the guy with the redshirt. "Sorry, we are almost two months on this island. What's your name again?" before he could answer I saw a fire. "Fire! Fire!" Everybody was trying to put out the fire.
"He's got my baby! Stop it!" I heard from down the beach. It was Claire and Charlie stole her baby. Locke ran to help. Charlie keep saying he had to save him. I walked slowly toward them. "You're hurting me, Charlie" Claire said almost crying. Locke took the baby from Charlie and gave him to Claire. I hugged Claire "It's alright" behind me I heard Locke punched Charlie 3 times. I didn't want to look.
I sat with Claire for a few hours when Jack approached. "Tiffany, can I talk to you?" he asked. I nodded "I'll be right back Claire." Jack and I walked down the beach. "Charlie asked not to tell you this, but I'm gonna do in anyway." I didn't know what he was talking about. "Charlie started the fire" he said. I stood still. "It's not going to happen again, he promised me." It didn't matters if it would happen again, I looked down "did he used?" I asked. Jack shook his head. "He said he didn't."
"I don't know if I want to sleep there anymore, but if I leave he won't have anyone anymore." I said worried. "Why don't you stay at the Hatch?" Jack asked. "Maybe, because there's an alarm that goes off every 108 minutes." I smiled "If you don't mind, I'm going back to Claire" I said and run off.
I slept at Claire's tent, Locke used to sleep there, but he had button-duty at the Hatch this night. I didn't sleep well, I thought about the thing Sawyer said to me Why did you stay. These words kept crossing my thoughts. "Are you still awake?" Claire whispered. Turned on my left side and nodded. "Can't sleep" I whispered back.
"Why would Charlie do something like that?" she asked while she looked at a sleeping Aaron. "He thinks he has to protect Aaron." I rubbed Aarons cheek. "Isn't it weird, Boone died and Aaron was born at the same time." Claire said. I looked down.
"I'm sorry, I just…" she apologized. "Don't be, but yes, it's weird. Maybe a part of Boone is in Aaron" I smiled. I looked at Charlie, he didn't sleep to and he was watching us. "Charlie is checking you out" I laughed. Claire pushed me a little "Shut up, He isn't checking me out. He is checking you out." I sat up again. "Let's find out" I stood up, but Claire pulled me back down.
I didn't mention us falling asleep again, but when I woke up I saw Sawyer talking to Charlie. "Shouldn't you be more worried about Jack ransacking your tent right now?" I heard Charlie saying when I walked by. "What?" Sawyer turned around and ran back to his tent. I pushed me down and I fell in the sand. "Good morning to you too." I mumbled.
Charlie helped me stand up. "Are you okay?" he asked. I nodded while I was looking at Sawyer almost fighting with Jack. "He ignored me" I whispered. "Who? Sawyer. Why do you care?" Charlie asked. "Never mind." I walked away. "See you later, Charlie."
"These belong to all of us, Sawyer, to the group. You don't have stash anymore" Jack said angrily to Sawyer who grabbed the medicine back. "Just give them to Jack, James" Sawyer shook his head. "These are mine" I sighed and grabbed them. Sawyer grabbed my arm. "What, are you going to punch me? Don't think so." I broke free and gave the medicine to Jack "Here you go."
"Last chance, Doc" Sawyer said, but Jack walked away. "What is your problem, dwarf" Sawyer looked angry, but at this moment I didn't really care about it. When Kate arrived I walked away. "I like what you've done to your place" I heard Kate saying before I walked into the jungle.
Jack ran after me "Thanks for having my back out there" I walked straight to the Hatch. "What do you mean?" I said without looking at him. "I mean, you and Sawyer are so close lately. Didn't thought you would have my back." I smiled "I'm complicated" Jack nodded "Yes you are; So, you're joining our army I guess?" He asked it, but he already knew my answer. "Yup"
"You get the combo." Ana asked and Jack nodded. "Nice. I didn't think it would be that easy convincing your pal to give up. That's the nice thing about you people…. You're not scared enough"
"Not scared enough?" I asked while entered. "Same reason we can't talk anyone into joining the army. Everyone around here actually thinks they're safe." Ana continued. And that's why only the seventeen-year-old girl here wants to join" She said sarcastic. "Trust me, I have my own reasons to join." I said.
"So, what is you're reason?" she asked. "I told you, I have my own reason" Actually, I didn't have a good reason, I just wanted revenge. Ana looked at Jack who shook his head. "So Jack, what's the combo." Jack looked at Ana suspiciously. "I was just kidding" she laughed.
I go on vacation tomorrow, so I won't be able to upload a Chapter in 2weeks, but this doesn't mean that I don't write. I'm planning on writing lot of chapters, so you can at least expect 5 chapters the next time I upload! Reviews are always welcome!
