The shout shattered the silent air, the spell of serenity had been broken. Groggy and confused, Jael raised her sunburned face off of the golden sand, taking in her surroundings all at once. In front of her, there lay mounds and mounds of hot sand, dispersing into a a dark impending jungle environment. The mysteriousness of it all just added the confusion. She needed to find out where she was. Revealing the motivation to move deep within her, she forced her head to raise itself a half inch off of the ground and a slight groan escaped her mouth as she shook out the knots that had taken refuge in her neck. The sun shamelessly continued to beat down harshly on her, and her head throbbed with the new red consistency that it had developed. As she rolled over, her light green eyes fell upon a girl shaking a boys arm repeatedly. Jael squealed quietly at the sight of the two strangers. She shuffled back on her hands and found herself in contact with yet another human. Another shriek escaped her mouth.
Alex found himself being trod upon, awoken from his quiet slumber, he rubbed his eyes and looked around. He was drawn to a small childlike figure curled up into a ball, red hair splayed everywhere. Alex chuckled at the sight, but then at the irony of it all, how he was able to laugh even in this dire situation where there seemed to be no good to come of it all. His stiff legs straightened at the joints and he felt himself rising to his feet in the blazing hot sun, squinting against the bright beams. He approached the two figures, unsure of his footing in the soft and pliable sand. His eyes scanned the shoreline and saw the clear water lapping the sand like a thirsty puppy, it was then that the thirst returned to him. His throat suddenly became parched, and his tongue to big for his mouth. "Where are we?" His voice cracked with the lack of substance.
