After a round of bickering where everyone tried to point out the reason why anyone except themselves should be the one to die, the group comes to a conclusion. The daredevil gets to be...
Abs.! Everyone is quite impressed at the voting distribution. However, Abs. is not amused.
Abs.: "No! You can't do this to me! Give me that parachute!"
MoonRaven: "Now now, someone's
gotta draw the short straw."
shinichi'sapprentice: "Too bad, so sad. Bye!"
MoonRaven and shinichi'sapprentice put on fake smiles as they push Abs. from the plane, to her likely imminent demise. Everyone has a quick moment of silence to pretend like they're sad at the loss of Abs., but quickly regain their composure as they prepare to leave the plane. One person has bigger worries, though...
???: "Hey! Who ate my sandwich?!?"
Huh? You're not quite sure what they're talking about, but you don't really care either, because you have bigger problems at the moment. Everyone just shrugs and rolls their eyes as they don their parachutes and jump out of the plane in quick succession. Not too long after when everyone's a safe distance away, the plane explodes in mid-air for no good reason.
As they fall, dumytru shouts to the group above the roaring of the wind.
dumytru: "Hey, look at the ground! What is that?"
MoonRaven: "It looks like a forest!"
Butler: "More accurately, it's a jungle! This is the jungle that lies on the border of Akonyland!"
KaitoRizu: "Oh yeah? I didn't know there was one! What's it called?"
Butler: "The Jungle of Giant Snakes!"
Stopwatch: "That sounds terrible! Why didn't you warn us?"
Butler: "Don't worry! The snakes haven't lived here in ages, they were hunted until they were forced to retreat into caves! And they're actually extinct now, someone killed the last one a few years ago!"
Stopwatch: "I still don't like it!"
Miraculously, everyone lands in roughly the same spot, in a clearing that allows them to land easily without having their parachutes become tangled in the trees. Abs.'s body is nearby, and from the marks on the ground, you can tell that she didn't die immediately, bounced a few times, broke her bones each time, and finally succumbed to her injuries in a gruesome and painful manner. Near each landing spot, a mangled costume can be seen, and you piece together that Abs. (Yukiko)
must have frantically tried to use her discarded costumes to soften the blows on her breaking bones. It was to no avail, as the crumpled mass of body clearly shows.
Also next to the body, a small piece of paper can be seen:
Looking at the gruesome scene kind of makes you hungry.
Jecka: "Geez, anyone else feeling hungry? I haven't eaten anything in a while."
Raiden: "Yeah, and all our food was on the plane..."
???: "I dunno, I'm fine. I just had a sandwich. It was pretty good."
Butler: "Looks like we'll have to forage for food, then! There's a lot to eat in a jungle, so we should look around for some stuff that looks edible. Oh look, some berries!"
Kleene Onigiri: "Wait a second. Even if there's no giant snakes, shouldn't there be other..."
As Kleene says it, a deep growling can be heard from the bushes.
Kleene Onigiri: "...animals?"
Butler: "Oh, right. I forgot that the giant snakes of this forest used to prey on all the wolves. With the snakes gone, the wolf population has become a bit large and unopposed, and they don't really fear anything anymore. We should probably just run."
The butler immediately takes off running in one direction, and shouts over his shoulder to the group. "You might want to follow me! And don't fall behind, for obvious reasons!"Night 3 (Welcome to the Jungle) Begins
