[Boone had found himself waking up much earlier than he ever expected to. For a while, he patiently waits for Alex to get up, but eventually boredom causes him to leave the house (after writing Alex a note saying he was out) and go aimlessly wandering around the barracks. He stumbles upon a basketball court, huh, since when did that get there? He spots a tired old orange basketball and cheerfully decides to go shoot some hoops, it had been a while since he'd been really active.]

*Is taking a morning walk to clear his head some. All the suspicions he had over the past week were really getting to him and he decided that a nice walk should clear his head some*

*He frowns when he sees you throwing the ball at a hoop*

Hmmm, looks like someone came up with another game, mate...

[He looks over, a little surprised to see Charlie there. He catches the ball as it rebounds from the board.]
Hahah, yeah.
notdeadbuthere: happy grinnotdeadbuthere on December 14th, 2009 12:59 am (UTC)
So how is everything going mate? Gave any more thought to our conversation the other night?
ifoundsomepens: Chagrinedifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 01:05 am (UTC)
Unfortunately, no.
Alex got in a fight... and then Sayid came over.
[He looks at Charlie seriously.]
He put Ben in jail.

*looks at you*

He put Ben in Jail? It's about bloody time...well I have to admit, I kind of feel better with him locked up...gives the others a message. You know?
ifoundsomepens: Thinking/Dorkyifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 01:11 am (UTC)
I definitely think so too. but... part of me thinks that maybe this might antagonize them.
I don't really know.
Anyways, it makes me feel so much better that someone actually DID something about Ben.
notdeadbuthere: Thinking about itnotdeadbuthere on December 14th, 2009 01:17 am (UTC)
Hopefully,if there's a next time, they won't take so bloody long.

You never know about the others...worse thing is they all think they're doing the right thing following Ben, or Jacob, or whoever their lead is.


Are you and Alex going to be ok, mate?
ifoundsomepens: :\ifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 01:28 am (UTC)
[He bounces the ball again.]
Yeah, I'm still a little angry and she's still broken up about it all. But we'll get over it. It's not like I don't love her anymore, we'll be fine.

That's the one thing I don't get, as far as I know, it seems like all Ben's done is screw them over... and yet they're still loyal to him? I don't understand that man.
Ana Lucia Cortez: BIG SMILEiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 01:03 am (UTC)
Ana Lucia is briskly walking back to her house, having forgotten some files she needed to return to the offices.

Passing the basketball courts, she sees Boone.

The damn files can wait.

Smiling broadly, she trots over and gets in a stance in front of him, guarding him from the hoop.

Up for a friendly match?
ifoundsomepens: Laugh cuterifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 01:07 am (UTC)
[He bounces the ball, and smiles broadly. It was good to see his best friend after all that time.]
I don't know, are you?
Ana Lucia Cortez: SMUGiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 01:09 am (UTC)
Only if you're ready to lose.

She matches his sidestep, her left arm outstretched.

But I can always try and go easy on you if you're still sore.
ifoundsomepens: Smoothifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 01:16 am (UTC)
[He pushes past her guard, and takes a shot at the net. It bounces on the rim of the hoop, but doesn't go in. Boone sprints to get the ball back before Ana.]
Hah, I'm sure it's not gonna be as easy as you think.
Ana Lucia Cortez: SMILE! 2iwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 01:21 am (UTC)
Boone has a height advantage over Ana, but she's still a little faster. She knocks the ball out of his hand before he can regain control of it fully, and bounces it gleefully.

See where your cockiness gets ya? I may be a little outta practice, but I'm still gonna school you today.
ifoundsomepens: Slyifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 01:24 am (UTC)
[Boone guards Ana from the goal, nearly knocking the ball from her hands.]
I wouldn't be so cocky.
Ana Lucia Cortez: DDDDDDD:iwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 01:27 am (UTC)
She turns quickly to shoot the ball, and accidentally elbows Boone in a sensitive spot on his stomach. Her shot sails into the basket, and she turns to gloat.

Oh yeah? What were you sayi---


Her face falls as she notices Boone, doubled over in pain.
ifoundsomepens: Not a great dayifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 01:30 am (UTC)
[Boone groans on the floor, clutching his stomach. His breath comes out in short and shallow wheezes mixed with coughs that only sound painful.]
Ana Lucia Cortez: OH FUCKiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 01:47 am (UTC)
Boone? Oh fuck, oh fuuuuck...

She hoists his arm around her and staggers to hold him up. Somehow, she manages to get him over the nearest bench.

Oh my god, did I pop one of your stitches? I'm so sorry.

Shit, Juliet's gonna have my head. We shouldn't have been playing sports.

Oh fuck, do you need me to get her or Ethan?
ifoundsomepens: Not a great dayifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 01:51 am (UTC)
[He reaches a shaky arm to her shoulder, still wheezing. A blossom of blood appears on his shirt. It looks like he wants to tell her something, faint whispers come from his lips.]
Ana Lucia Cortez: WORRIEDiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 01:55 am (UTC)
Her eyes widen with pure fear as she notices the blood spreading on his shirt, his breath hoarse and shallow.

Boone? Boone, talk to me...

She leans closer, trying to hear what he has to say.

What are you saying? I've gotta go get Jules, oh my god.

Her own breath is catching in her throat, as her panic starts to overtake her.
ifoundsomepens: I LOLDifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 01:59 am (UTC)
Tell... tell Alex...

[He slumps forward, letting Ana panic for a couple of seconds, before springing back up, he laughs.]
Oh man, you should have seen your face. Damn, I'm good.
Ana Lucia Cortez: YELLINGiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 02:06 am (UTC)
Her fear is quickly replaced with fury.

You fuckin' jerk! I'd beat the piss outta you if you hadn't had it done so recently.

She points down at his shirt.

Even gettin' fake blood to freak me out. FUCK. YOU.

She stands, walking over to the things she placed down.

Can't BELIEVE you, sometimes...
ifoundsomepens: smile with smirkifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 02:09 am (UTC)
Nah, it's not fake blood. You knocked a scab off, see?
[He lowers the collar of the shirt, showing the would.]

Aww Ana, don't be mad. It was a harmless joke, that's all!
Ana Lucia Cortez: SADiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 02:17 am (UTC)
Ana whips around, this time looking more upset than angry. There is a lump in her throat, and the worry she felt when he first went missing washes over her again.

She stares at the ground, unable to look him in the eye.

...Do you have any idea how much I worried about you while you were missing?

Do you have ANY fucking clue? I thought you were DEAD, Boone! But I had to head up the search to find you, and not let that thought get to me. Do you know what that's like?

We searched for a goddamn week, and there were days I thought I would never see you again...

And now you're making a joke out of how much I fucking care about you?

Angry tears are now spilling from her eyes, and she blinks furiously, trying to dam them.

She bends over, picking up her things and walking towards him, pointing at his chest. She stares straight into his face, almost feeling relief over getting all of this out of her system; it's been bottled away for so long.

You're my best friend, Boone. But this hit too close to home.
ifoundsomepens: Chagrinedifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 02:29 am (UTC)
[He looks away from her and off into the distance.]
I'm sorry Ana, really. If I knew... I wouldn't have made that joke.

But this... this whole thing hasn't exactly been a cake walk for me either. I figure laughing about it'd make it at least a little better.
Ana Lucia Cortez: DISTRESSEDiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 02:37 am (UTC)
Maybe for you.

But I don't like worrying about my friends. Least of all you.
ifoundsomepens: Sad/Heartbrokenifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 02:42 am (UTC)
Listen... I'm really really sorry. I shouldn't have done that.
[He gets up from the bench and walks to her. When he's reached her, he envelops his best friend in a warm hug.]
I'm sorry Ana... really sorry.
Ana Lucia Cortez: CRYINGiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 02:51 am (UTC)
She tries to hold back, but finally gives in to his embrace and clings to him, sniffling.

I fuckin' love you, Boone. I don't know what I woulda done if...if...

She wibbles into his shoulder, her tears staining his shirt.
ifoundsomepens: Sad/Why?ifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 02:57 am (UTC)
[Boone pats Ana Lucia on the back as she cries. He squeezes her, starting to get a little emotional too.]
I love you too Ana. You don't gotta worry about that at all, alright? Because I'm right here and I'm not gonna go anywhere.
Ana Lucia Cortez: WORRIEDiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 03:11 am (UTC)
You better not.

She hugs him tighter, knowing all too well that it's a promise he has no control of keeping.
ifoundsomepens: Sadhalfsmilethingifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 03:16 am (UTC)
[Boone strokes her hair, hoping it provides at least a little comfort.]

Listen, I gotta talk to you about something.
Ana Lucia Cortez: LOOK DOWN 2iwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 03:17 am (UTC)
She sniffles a little, still burrowed in his shoulder.

About what?
ifoundsomepens: Gloomy/introspectiveifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 03:40 am (UTC)
Charlie and I were talking the other day... and we wanted to get all the survivors together. Sort of like a group meeting, after all that's happened I think we need to band together and get organized. I can't really trust most of the others... after what Ben did to me, and I just want to take extra steps to make sure nothing like that happens again. And if it's does... we'd be more than prepared.
Ana Lucia Cortez: LEMME THINKiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 04:00 am (UTC)
She steps back, wiping her sore eyes and taking this into consideration.

I think that's a damn good idea. Want me to talk to Des and Sayid about this?
ifoundsomepens: Miffedifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 04:33 am (UTC)
Yeah, that would be really helpful.

I haven't really been knocking down doors yet. Alex and I got in a big fight... so we've both been moping around.
Ana Lucia Cortez: LOOK UPiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 04:44 am (UTC)
She pouts, and places a hand on his shoulder.

Nothin' you two can't fix. She'll come around.
ifoundsomepens: Drained/Sleepyifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 04:48 am (UTC)
[Boone lets out a deep sigh.]
Yeah, we'll be fine... she's just I think it's gonna take Alex a while. She feels really guilty.
Ana Lucia Cortez: LISTENINGiwaspregnant on December 14th, 2009 04:55 am (UTC)
You guys'll work it out. With you two bein' so stressed over what happened, no wonder you're fighting.

Ana Lucia shakes her head, still trying to rid herself of the worry she felt a few minutes ago.
ifoundsomepens: smile with smirkifoundsomepens on December 14th, 2009 05:07 am (UTC)
Yeah, it'll take time... but we'll be fine.
