Boys are bloody gits!
Lily fumed as she stalked away from the little gathering running amuck. She had to be stuck with her dumb brother with the stupid group consisted mainly of boys on the plane. If that wasn't bad enough, the stupid plane had crash on a practically deserted islands with no sophisticated, responsible adults. No sight of the wreckage. No order. No civilization.
When Lily couldn't take it anymore, she lend onto a nearby tree and finally broke. Though she didn't actually broke into tears like most girls would in her shoes, she instead felt like a boat was rammed into her lungs repeatedly.
If her mother were here, she would tell her to chin up and fight on. If her father were here, he would tell her be brave and take life in strides. But they aren't.
Realization struck her as her brain finally came to a halt. We are stranded alone on a deserted island and all of them were just a bunch of children.
A sudden snap drew her back to the present.
Lifting her head up slowly, Lily noticed a young girl fiddling with a tip of her raven colored locks that reached her small shoulders. Her navy blue skirt was a bit ruffled and dotted with sand. The girl's chocolate brown eyes danced from Lily to a blade of grass on the ground. The young girl wasn't much at first glance since she just radiant nervousness.
"Sorry,.. um are you alright Miss?"
Lily blinked. After a few seconds, Lily finally registers the brunette's question and straighten herself. "I'm alright. Thank-you for asking. Do you need anything?"
"No. Well I just thought.. well… you might want to come back…" Her cheeks steadily became a bit more pink and then quickly she added, "That is if you are feeling better!"
"Oh. I think I'm ready to come back now. Thank-you." Not really.
"Okay." The young girl spinned around with a twirl and took off back towards the assembly,
Sighing, Lily took in a much needed breath and step towards the direction the young brunette went.
The stroll back actually help Lily immensely as it got her body to do something. The sun kissed her skin whenever Lily passes spots without shade. She was thanks for the air that felt cool as the ocean's winds blow, dancing atop hair fire like hair. Maybe this isn't so bad.
Finally, Lily caught sight of the assembly she took in account the boys weren't running about. A blond boy that looks about Lily's age, stood at the center of the gathering, seamlessly brought order to the unruly younger boys, to Lily's surprise. Before that they were running around careless and oblivious of their situation.
The fair haired blond held a pale, rose colored shell around which caught a lot of their attention including her's. A conch, she thought, I only read about them in books.
Some girls ranging from about primary to secondary ages huddled close to each other, less distress than earlier. Lily also finally took in account a familiar group of boys stood nearby with black cloaks and black caps atop their crowns.
"We ought to introduce ourselves."
Apparently the blond boy was named Ralph and strangely the slightly obese boy with round specks was named Piggy as Ralph offered, which made many of them giggled. Though Lily suspect that the boy was just being rude.
As soon as more names was called out shared, Lily was lost in thought. Though she did caught that the twins were called Sam and Eric, and couple of others like Roger, Simon, Anna, Olivia, and Emma.
"Kids' names," said a familiar red head like her's. "Why should I be Jack? I'm Merridew." Internally, Lily groaned when the he stated his name like that, but mostly ignored him.
"Oi. What about your's?"
Eyes turned at Lily and she stiffened.
Many either nodded in acknowledgement or was chatting lightly with each other after their introductions. From the corner of her eye, Lily noticed that Jack was eyeing her till he caught her evergreen eyes looking back, and turned away quickly.
In attempt of a dignified manner, Jack stated, "We've got to decide about being rescued."
Whispers broke through the groups. For once, Lily agreed, though didn't said it out loud.
"Shut up." Ralph absentmindedly held up the conch. "Seems to me we ought to have a chief to decide things."
"A chief! A chief!"
Like the other girls, Lily rolled her eyes at the boys antic. Typical.
"I ought to be chief," said Jack with simple arrogance, "because I'm
chapter chorister and head boy. I can sing C sharp."
"What about us?" Piped a voice somewhere within the cluster of girls.
"Girls can't be chief. That's only a man's job." Some of the boys nodded in agreement.
"You aren't a man though." The same voice fired back. Interestingly the group broke into chatters.
Sputtering Jack tried to make a comeback. The girls started giggling at the spectacle even Lily couldn't help it but smirk. Jack then turned as red as the color of his hair.
Another girl spoke out. "Why don't we have two chief? Like one boy and one girl, so they both can discuss things."
Murmurs pasted over and many of the boys and girls agreed.
A dark haired boy, Roger, if Lily could remember correctly, stirred at last and spoke.
"Let's have a vote."
The assembly buzzed with excitement, and reluctantly Jack agreed also due to the overwhelming agreements.
As Ralph held the conch up again, all the attention came back to him.
"Alright. Well let's start off with the boys then. Who wants Jack to be chief?"
Noticeably, the choir rose their hands and surprisingly, some hands from the girls.
"Who wants me?"
Almost immediately, everyone outside the choir hands shot up. Lily rose her own hand too and lastly Piggy's. Ralph nodded after he finished counting.
"I'm chief then." Ralph took a look at Jack
The circle of boys and girls broke into applause. Even the choir applauded; and the freckles on Jack's face disappeared under a blush of mortification. He started up, then changed his mind and sat down again while the air rang. Ralph looked at him, eager to offer something.
"The choir belongs to you, of course. Well you can be… an army or something."
"Hunters than. We will be hunters."
"And now for the girls. Which one of you wants to be girl chief?"
Whispers broke out as two names came up.
"It's either Emma," a primary age looking girl pointed at a girl with raven black hair, "or her." The primary age girl state while pointed at Lily's direction.
Lily blinked in surprise. Why me? I didn't even try to draw attention to myself. Lily shifted uncomfortably but nod in acknowledgement.
"Who wants Emma?"
About half or the girls rose their hands and some of the boys looked between Emma and Lily then finally about half put their hands up.
"Who wants Lily?"
The other half of the girls shifted their hands up, same with the boys. Including, the choirboys that basically recognized her rose their hands.
"There you have it. Lily is the girl chief." Claps and shouts came around till Ralph held up the conch again, and silence fell upon them.
"Listen, everybody. I've got to have time to think things out. I can't decide what to do straight off. If this isn't an island we might be rescued straight away. So we've got to decide if this is an island. Everybody must stay round here and wait and not go away. Three of us—if we take more we'd get all mixed, and lose each other—three of us will go on an expedition and find out. I'll go, and Jack, and, and. . . "
Lily was a bit impress of Ralph's authority and how he carried his new found leadership role already. Ralph surveyed the group before him and stopped at a boy before he announce the third person.
Simon was a skinny looking boy with black hair that hung like curtains. A bit meek too if it wasn't for the fact he agreed to come along.
"All right. Lily, since your girl chief, you can organize everything here along with Piggy, while the three of us are gone."
Lily stood a bit taller and nodded. She then notice again that the red haired boy glanced at her with a calculating look. As the trio left, Piggy looked nervously at her before wiping his palms on his tattered trousers and took off to catch the boys.
A sigh left Lily before she thought of much needed essentials and several plans.
((A/N Well I wrote this awhile ago for a school project and decided, "Hey! I should post this online since it's technically a fanfic and I should post it to get more kudos and followers! AHAHAHAHHAHAH!"
The editor this time is Crysis Commander from Fimfiction
I don't think I'll make another chapter though considering I don't have the motivation to write as much as I have for art.
As for arts, I made a video to go with the project though it's actually for the original story (meaning there are only the original characters in that video). I also want to apologize for the terrible sketches, since I've spent till 3:22 am on a school night drawing to finish that project. Which is an impressive feat on my part. I can only blame myself considering that I was assigned this a couple of weeks ago, but I'm a huge procrastinator when it comes to big projects apparently.))
