ISLAND LOCKED: Episode 4 . The 4th episode of the spectacular series, ISLAND LOCKED, the original CYOA series. .
After a brief meeting, they group decided who should go after Christian, go fishing, or remain at the fort, and either tend Michael’s wounds, or build the for more.
Eric, David J, Dillpickle, and Connor where set after Christian and Caleb, who was missing. Eric was leading the way. While Caleb is gone, I should act as leader, I’m a good leader, he thought.
While he was engrossed with leader ideas, he forgot to watch where he was going, and tripped over a plant.
It wasn’t the typical stick snapping noise, but more of a leaver of some sort being pulled.
Eric began to stand up, regaining his dignity, when Connor shouted, “GET DOWN!”
Dillpickle, Connor, and David J immediately dropped to the ground.
But Eric was a little slow, and remained standing
There was a swooshing noise, then a sickening "Splurch" noise. Connor's stomach felt queasy as he looked at the spear that had basically cut Eric in half, and realized he was clearly dead.
Just when Connor thought things couldn't get worse, they did, suddenly Dillpickle and David where caught several feet in the air by a net.
David was only hanging by one leg, but Dillpickle was totally engulfed in the nets. Conor, as sickening was it was, ran over to where Eric had been speared and pulled the spear out of him. Eric's upper half dropped into his blood, sounding like a saturated sponge dropping in a sink.
Connor took the spear and began to cut David free.
But as soon as David was free, Connor went down with a dart in his back. right then and there, David had to make a choice, he could either free Dillpickle,and try to fight the natives, or he could have a chance a getting away with Connor.
He dropped his weapon, took of Connor's backpack, and began to drag Connor to safety.
Poor Dillpickle was left to the Natives.
But he knew he was luckier than some.
After about 10 feet, David knew he'd never make it, and Connor was loosing blood, fast too.
Suddenly, and wordlessly, a man came out of the brush and began to help him drag Connor. he later explained his name was Theodore Peters, and that he had also just woken up on the beach, another one of them.
The fishing group, Nathan Bob, and Indiana Ford, had decided, instead of fishing, to go back and find the beast they ha killed a few days back, and drag him back.
Michael had been propped up in the corner of the shelter all day, and eventually was well enough to make a fire.
The fishing party made it back to the camp without incident.
and began cooking the food.
Blood was still dipping from Connor's back when David, him, and Theodore made it to camp.
They laid him down and et Thomas take a look. It was hard to tell through all the blood, but he thought it was called a bleeding dart. it was a kind of dart made specifically for the victim to bleed to death.
Thomas was able to stop the bleeding, but there was still blood where they set him down, Thomas thought he'd be okay, but it was hard to tell.
David J called a meeting around the camp fire while cooking one of the strange beasts' arms.
"Look, we have food enough to last us for a week, especially at the rate people are dying on this island! so we don't need any more hunting parties. so far, 2 of our friends are in the Indian's hands. Now they might have been eaten by now, and they might be alive. so we need to make a choice, we can either send everyone out and take on the Natives, or not lose any more people, and assume their dead. Let's have a vote."

Christian and Dillpickle where pinned under a net, each conner held down by large rocks.
There was a fire ready. but they hadn't started to cook them yet, it appeared they where waiting for someone.
as it turned out, what they where waiting for was Caleb tied to a stick, classic Cannibal style carried by 2 green creatures.
but the scary thing was the leader, a good 7 feet tall, he wore Armour and a turban of some kind, and had a very large axe.
Christian expected to put Caleb over the fire, but instead they stuck him into the ground.
all Christian heard was Athanasios Lazarou, and the word feast. he assumed Athanasios Lazarou was he other chief, and assumed he was the feast. who knew?
