    No Where Land (Open to all, the more that post the better the thread)

    Post  Contego on Fri Jun 28, 2013 4:36 pm

    (I ripped this off from and old one on HM. Changed it up though)
    (No where land, where ones are lost and very rarely found)

    Sitting cramped as sardine in cans neither Ikra or Liran looked very impressed. When their boss said they had been given leave to fly out home, they had imagined it would have been in one of the choppers or the army jets, not a commercial flight in economy.
    Now both sat in silence in the middle row, they seemed to be surrounded by either snoring worker types or screaming kids.

    Ikra's head lulled back against the headrest as he closed his eyes trying to sleep away the rest of their nightmare flight when the plane suddenly jolted “Woah boy” he muttered his eyes suddenly open and alert, he glanced at his brother who seemed to be keeping a cool head on it. “Ik its just turbulence stay cool” Liran mumbled to him, even though his grip upon the arm chair now remained a little tighter.
    Both brothers being Lycans meant they could hear and sense things the humans probably couldn't and something was starting to sound and feel wrong.

    “Maybe we should buckle up though huh?” Liran said as an afterthought, both boys doing so as the plane started to jolt once again, this time without stopping a roaring formed from the left side of the plane just before it jerked left and started to tail spin out, metal loudly ripping from the exterior of the plane working its way inside as the screaming and frantic calls of the people within increased.
    Liran and Ikra how ever sat braced for imminent death, both clutching the seats neither bothering with the oxygen masks with swung before them.
    Soon there would be an earth shattering explosion as the plane impacted the desert and then there would be darkness.

    Gabrielle sat comfortable in first class sipping on a champagne flute full of orange juice. Her manicured nails flicked through the pages of the briefs from the previous meetings. She wrote down a few key notes on her I Pad with a stylus for tomorrows meeting. She wasn't a nervous flyer but the continuing turbulence was starting to unnerve her so she distracted herself with work. Unfortunately her mind was still focused on the intensifying shaking of the plane.

    What happened next all seemed to go by in a blur. She was aware of the oxygen masks dropping in front of her and having seen the typical safety precautions hundreds of times, she knew to grab the mask and her phone dropped to the floor and smashed as she could hear the sounds of panic in the background. She shut her eyes trying to memorize the escape route and thought of home as she pushed herself back into the chair as a deafening explosion went off in the background. She wasn't sure if she had gone deaf or whether she had died but suddenly everything around her went quiet and she blacked out.

    First light faded in and out of Liran's vision, slowly until shapes started to form, then came the sound, roaring, metal creaking and dying gasps, then the feeling to his body returned and with it he gasped sharply in before breaking out in a fit of coughs trying to clear his lungs from all the debris and dust which he had inhaled as he slowly became aware of an whole body ache.
    The stench of burning flesh did all but make him hurl as he blinked, each blink becoming more rapid as he gained his bearings.
    It took a few moments for him to get enough wit about him to realise what had happened but once he did pure panic clutched in his chest.
    Feeling around he  forced himself to focus, to block out the ringing in his ear and all other distracting factor and simply focus on where he was, moving his hands down his body he located the straps which kept him buckled in, he was still in his chair, he and the now dead occupant of his left had been thrown back, the backs of their chair against the sand their legs up in the air.
    Unbuckling himself Liran gingerly rolled himself out and onto his feet, his eyes growing more frantic when he couldn't locate his brother.
    “IKRA!” He bellowed off into the angry smoke filled skies, his blood and sweat soaked body lurching forward in a stumble as be began his search.

    Coughing and struggling to breathe, she bolted awake from her shocked induced sleep. Her vision was hazy from the smoke and she didn't know what was going on. All she knew was she had to get out. She tried to get up but something had a hold of her, the belt, she hadn't removed her belt. Her hands trembled as she grabbed the buckle and lifted it up. She fell forward into the seat in front, she hadn't realized that the front of the plane had been pitched forward and hadn't allowed for it. Grabbing the head rest of her seat she found the strength to pull herself forward.

    She looked behind her towards the cockpit. There was no way she was going to head towards the plume of smoke and exit it out the front of the plane so she headed towards the back of the plane towards economy. She stumbled and staggered but managed to to make it through the curtains and into economy. She did her best to breathe through her mouth, a trick she had learned on the farm when it came to intolerable smells. But nothing could help her for the sights she saw in the cabin.

    It stopped her in her tracks as she saw business men, mothers, children, all not moving. Their bodies displaying the effects of impact and flames. Tears ran down her face as she observed the horror before her. She slowly walked down the aisle her hands gripping the seats for support. No one seemed to survive, no one was struggling or crying for help. The silence was devastating. Making her way towards the exit wanting to leave the nightmare, someone caught her eye. Part of her knew that she should try and get off the plane as quickly as possible but if someone was alive could she really leave them behind.

    Crouching lower she was almost afraid to touch them in case she was mistaken. Placing her hand on their shoulder she shook ever so lightly but spoke clearly. " Hey, can you hear me? " she shook a little harder. " We have to get off the plane! Can you hear me? "

    Liran stumbled back across the sand, he could see the plane in a plume of smoke he worked out he must have been three quarters of a mile away from it, as his chair had been ripped out of the plane he decided that Ikra's probably had been as well not knowing that Ikra still remained inside he began looking at the surrounding rubble first occasionally yelling Ikra's name between coughs his ribs broken, his sternum bruised from the belt and his lungs irritated from the dust he had to pause often to catch his breath which slowed the process down more which only made his anxiety about his brother grow.
    He quickly lost count of the bodies he came across some so badly damaged they were not even recognizable.


    Ikra lay slumped within his chair, blonde hair hanging over his face, the majority of it copper soaked in blood from two large gashes to his head, both to the left one above his eyebrow the other behind his ear, the crimson liquid ran steadily from the wounds meeting blood from his other large wound to pool upon the remaining piece of floor beneath his chair.
    The metal had been torn away to the side of him leaving his side open to the elements his left leg twisted and mangled where the seats had been ripped away hung lopsidedly against the side of his chair the bone sticking out above his ankle and another fragment below the knee. The rest of his side had been littered in grazes and bruises but hadn't faired as badly, his right side had sustained little to no damage at all.

    He felt light as though underwater, floating around in peace until something started shaking him pulling the illusion away from him as consciousness returned hitting him full on like a sledge hammer, coming around with a loud guttural groan as the pain hit him all at once Ikra stiffened his breathing accelerating in confusion and fear, he tried to move but couldn't something held him in place, his eyes fought to focus but couldn't, beginning to wheeze and mutter in panic he tried to lift his head, the effort alone causing him to almost cry out in pain, yet to realize it was someone who had shaken him awake.

    At first she thought she was mistaken, that maybe it had been wishful thinking that someone else had survived. But then to her relief he started moaning. " Oh god you're alive ok. " She whipped her jacket off and looked closer at the guy. He had a lot of blood loss and his leg was very obviously broken. Lowering herself down she tried to bring herself to his eye level so he wouldn't panic.

    She placed a hand on his shoulder and tried to calm him. " Hey hey it's ok now. We are going to get you off this plane ok. Now I am just going to look at your leg. " She had a quick look and tried not to show her shock for his sake. Even if she got him off the plane she didn't know if he would survive those wounds. Not knowing what else to do she quickly unbuttoned her white blouse and tied it around his leg. It would no debt hurt but maybe it would but her some time to get him off the plane. " I'm sorry about that. " she said as she now scrambled to his waist to unbuckle him. The smoke around them was growing thicker. She could make out the giant hole in the back of the plane and decided that would be the way they exited.
    Looking at him once again she spoke loudly wanting her words to get through his confused state. " Ok I am going to help you off this plane but I need you to help me too ok. You throw your left arm over me and support yourself with you right and will be out of here in a jiffy. " she sounded convincing but part of her wondered if they could make it out with his leg and the smoke.

    Growling to clear his throat Ikra struggled to locate in memory where he was or what was happening “Mav.... Mavrick you rolled the truck” he mumbled out in a breath his eyes lining up with a blurry figure in front of him, he thought it to be Conrad and that they must have been mid mission in one of the armed trucks, but he quickly shuddered backwards after seeing enough to work out it wasn't Mav, not even close, wrong sex for a start.
    He screwed up his face the pain in his head confusing him he tried to focus, he could just about hear her voice which he tried to concentrate on.
    “Plane?..” he tried again to lift his head his eyes blinking out the blood enough to see the woman better a memory of the plane crashing resurfacing in his mind. “plane..it crashed” he gasped trying now to turn and look for his brother “my brother?”

    He hadn't registered her concern for his leg yelling out in agony  as she covered it the pressure of it burning through his body like flames. His head automatically hunched down as he panted for breath trying to stop himself from vomiting in reaction. “Jesus” he cringed again trying to lift his head, stars dancing before his eyes.
    He only just managed to react as she started to move him doing his bit he walked the best he could while he tried to put together what had happened his memory haphazardly fading in and out, moving bought a fresh kind of pain, prickling his eyes with tears and labouring his breathing worse then the growing smoke, between grunts of exertion he managed to  her “Who are you?”

    His ramblings only concerned her more. Maybe he had lost to much blood or had a severe concussion. She didn't know if anything was registering with him but then he started to realise what was going on. He remembered the crash and then mentioned something about his brother. ' Oh god ' she thought. The seats beside him had been ripped clean from the plane but she didn't want to alarm him till they were clear of the plane.

    To her surprise he had managed to get to his feet and with her help, they actually managed to make some progress down the narrow aisle. " That's it just a few more feet. " she spoke trying to encourage him. She coughed as she inhaled more and more of the smoke. Breathing had been difficult since she had woke up and it was only getting worse. The added strain of his weight made her muscles want to scream and collapse beneath her but the adrenaline pumping through her system wouldn't allow her too. " Gabrelle Ranford but if we make it out of this plane you can call me Gabby. Come on it's not much further. " she spluttered gasping for breath.

    She thought she could see some rays of sunlight and maybe just maybe a breathe of fresh air. With every last bit of energy she had, she made one last ditch effort towards the gaping hole in the plane, bringing the injured male with her.

    He mumbled a few responses as she spoke to him his head down as its weight pulled his neck his shoulders slumped, all he could see were their feet and smoke, not that he paid any attention to any of that, lapsing between coherent understanding of the situation and displacing himself at different times in his past, for a few minutes he believed himself to be in the aftermath of a Taliban raid to which be began reeling off names as though he were doing a roll call to check they had all made it back.
    Her name reached him though “Gabrielle, have we met Gabrielle?” he mumbled lifting his head to look at her, he managed to keep walking “That's a good cough you have there” his speech slightly slurred though slowly it improved confusion awash in his eyes, as he switched between knowing what was going on and not “ Where are we? The plane went down, where’s my brother?”

    Ikra knelt down holding onto the hand of an elderly man who gasped for futile breathes gazing up at him with dying eyes asking for help, by the look of the huge open wound to the guy's chest there would be no saving him even if help were to arrive within seconds, Ikra simply tried to be with him in his last moments to offer any solace he could even though he despaired to find his twin he couldn't turn his back on anyone in such a state, for all he knew Liran had died and didn't need him, where as this man did.

    Gabby managed to get from the main centrifuge of the plane to the hole she had seen but the path was still not an easy one. Rubble and wreckage were the main obstacles in her way but she was still determined to her and the guy she had found away from the plane. Although he was not making it easy for her. He started calling out names in a list like manner. She didn't know who they were, maybe they were friends or a family she couldn't be sure.

    As she navigated through bodies, bags and pieces of planes it seemed he came back to reality. " Oh I think I would of remembered meeting you darling. " she tried to make light of the dire situation and just keep him moving through the plane. " Now don't you fret about me. We just have to get off this plane and then we can find your brother and get help ok. "

    They were a mere few feet away from what looked a beach but it was hard to tell through the haze of smoke. " Oft " suddenly the guy was down on the ground and taking her with him. She thought he had lost his balance or energy to go on but then she saw the old frail eyes looking at both of them. " Oh lord. " she muttered as she knelt beside him also. " Shush now, it's ok. " she whispered to him stroking his head affectionately. She took every bit of will she had not to cry and be fearful before the man. It would of been kinder if he had just died on impact rather then prolong his death like this.

    A few moments later his breathing subsided and the life from his body left him. A small sob escaped her chest as well as a few tears as she looked upon the man. Coughing again the smoke was thickening still and oxygen was becoming scarce. Wrapping her arm around the guy again, to support him and get for some comfort for herself." We have to keep moving. " she said to him. She honestly didn't want to leave the elderly person there like that but she was struggling as she was and she didn't think her lungs could take much more of the smoke.

    As the pensioner passed away Ikra sighed remembering the many times he had done this before in the past, it didn't pleasure him to know he had been one of the last things the man had seen, sighing he placed the man's hand against his dead heart and released him.
    Garbrielle had started to pull him back up again, making some sounds of sorrw as she did, he tried not to make it any worse for her and attempted to take his weight even though confusion threatened his mind again.
    "Liran will find us" he replied as they exited the plane "He knows his way around these streets better then anyone"


    In the mean time Liran's search had become more frantic as the sun started to set, the sky slowly darkened from blue to orange, soon it would be dark and that's when the cold would come.
    "Ikra!" He yelled one last time loud as he could in the hopes that by now if his brother was alive he would have managed to get somewhere a little bit safer "Where are you" he trailed off into a tired whisper his body wanting nothing more then a rest and some water.

    She stared at him a little confused but just nodded. He was clearly confused as to where they were. From what she could remember they were flying over water, it was probably the grace of God and the pilots skill that they had managed to land the plane on land rather then the ocean. " Is Liran your brother? " she asked then realizing she had been so engrossed in getting them off the plane she had forgotten to ask his name.

    Finally she was walking on soft golden sand and had navigated her way out of the debris. Instantly her heels began sinking into the sand and she almost fell but managed to regain her footing and her hold of her new injured friend. She stopped momentarily and kicked off her shoes, leaving only her stockings to cover her feet.

    She tried to get her bearings as she was finally outside and free of the plane. The ocean was to her left with a clear sandy beach in front of her. A forested area was to her left and offered shade and shelter. She didn't want to venture to far from the plane knowing rescuers would inevitable head for the plane. But she didn't know if the plane would explode or cause an even bigger fire. " Lets get you propped up against that tree and then we can decide what to do next ok. Maybe you can tell me your name so I can stop calling you darling. " again she didn't know how else to deal with the situation other then with some humor and thus far it seemed to have kept him and her relatively calm. Leading him to just before the tree she gestured for him to lower himself down the tree and she would of course help seeing as his injured leg looked like it could fall off. She said a silent prayer begging God to keep him alive long for help to get to him.

    "Yeah Liran, he's my twin brother" he responded to her his face turning into a frown as the smoke made him cough, managing to get it under control he looked over at her from time to time his eyes were now totally clear, he could see her features and what injuries she had taken he just couldn't grasp reality with both hands.
    "He was sitting next to me... " he mumbled remembering it in fragments once again "His chair is gone" he looked around now with a certain clarity trying to hold onto it.

    As the hard floor beneath them turned to sand he almost stumbled his only usable foot catching in it, hopping forward he quickly righted himself in time for Garbrielle to pause and remove her shoes. "..hey your like half naked?" he frowned "Want my jacket?" he looked around again slowly as she told him about the tree he nodded not having realized just how pleased his body would be to sit down.
    "Where are we?..." He started to sit down having to grit his teeth with an almost wolf like growl as his leg twisted meeting the floor "Oh..Ikra that's my name" he huffed out between breathes.

    His pain was obvious and it broke her heart to see anyone like that. She listened more carefully as he spoke now. She wasn't a doctor so she couldn't be sure if it was a good or bad thing but he suddenly seemed to realise what was going on. ' Isn't there a saying the people can develop a certain sense of clarity before they die? ' She frowned at the thought and hoped that it was a good sign since they had left the smokey haze of the plane.

    Her stomach twisted when he said his twin was next to him. She had to fight the urge to throw up there and then but it was easily done as he pointed out she was half naked. Looking down at herself she had forgotten how she had gotten this way for a moment. " Oh a twin and a gentleman to boot, how did I get so lucky? " She wasn't sure it was such a good idea for her to take his jacket. She didn't know what wounds he had sustained or if taking the jacket off would injure him further. " Don't you worry about me darling, lets just get you comfortable. " she said as he began to lower himself.

    His growl sent goosebumps over her body. She tried not to imagine what kind of pain he was in as she held his hand through it all. " I'm afraid I don't know where we are Ikra but .. " she had to stop to take a breath. She had hoped that once she was clear of the smoke breathing would be easier and less painful. She lowered herself beside him and leaned against the other side of the tree. Now the adrenaline was wearing off she was becoming more aware of her own injuries and pain. Her arm wrapped around her ribs just beneath her bra as she tried to support her aching and probably broken ribs. " I just need a minute to catch my breath " she managed before taking a deep and painful breath again. " and then we can take a look at those wounds. "

    He moved his head back against the tree once Gabrielle had sat down next to him, his eyes slowly closed against the pounding of his head but he kept himself awake feeling a little better for his eyes not having to try and focus upon anything.
    "Well if you change your mind, or get cold you know the offer is there" he mumbled to her as he listened to the plane creak and crackle in the distance. Every so often he thought he could hear a voice in the distance but as soon as he could hear it, it faded into nothing leaving him wondering if he had even heard it before.
    "Take your time, i'm tired anyway...i'm sure you are too, Liran he'll find us" his words grew quieter and unsure as he finished speaking.


    He could feel the chill growing upon his skin, but at least the plane was in sight now, he paused to take a moment to himself, so he could soak in the horror and ready himself for what he might see as he got closer and when he walked in.
    Massaging his ribs as he started to walk again he paused seeing a little movement off towards his side, something by the trees.
    Turning his head he squinted his Lycan eyes allowing him to just about see that far "Well I'll be damned" he gasped and broke into a jog, his body not allowing him to move much faster "Ik!? Ikra!?" he yelled shaking his head in disbelief that he found anyone let alone his brother all before night had properly taken hold.

    She smiled at Ikra. She didn't know how she could smile after everything she had just been through but somehow she had. " You are sweet Ikra. " she said as her voice lowered slightly as she relaxed against the tree. She wanted to sleep, to fall into a deep coma and awaken in a hospital surrounded by civilization. But as he began to grow quieter she worried again. She was afraid that if he fell asleep that he would not wake up again. " Ikra don't fall asleep yet ok. " She couldn't hide the concern in her voice anymore. So far Ikra seemed to be the only other person who had survived and she didn't want to lose him and be alone.

    She turned to look at him and contemplated shaking him but again she was afraid of injuring him further. Instead she placed her hand on his uninjured side and squeezed his shoulder gently. As she did so she heard a voice in the distance. Looking down the beach she saw a figure jogging towards the wreckage. She struggled to make out any features except for the blonde hair. As he progressed further down the beach she suddenly recognized the figure coming towards them. She smiled and looked back at Ikra. " Ikra, you were right. Your brother found you. " She hoped the news of his would be enough to keep off his slumber and buy him some more time. Sitting up, she painfully managed to sit on her knees beside Ikra. She raised her right arm and waved only for a moment before her ribs protested. It seemed Liran, the brother was in much better shape and she hoped he could help her with Ikra as her pain only increased with time.

    He had been drifting off into what felt like sleep, the surrounding sounds and smelled had dulled but then Gabrielle put some pressure on his shoulder bringing him back around again a little, his head lifting off of the tree to look at her incase she needed anything, again his eyes took a few seconds to focus as he gained his senses back. "Was resting my eyes" he smiled a little remembering an old friend who used to say such a comment, his head moved back against the tree once again as his eyes drifted the effort to stay awake not that he was still seemed such a monutain to climb.
    Opening his eyes at the mention of Liran he again rose his head to see what she was speaking about "Liran?" he squinted out and sure enough someone was moving, "Hey yeah that's Liran!" his voice though sounding quiet and tired cheered up a few notches. "I was right, yeah!"


    "Oh Thank Christ" he whispered to himself as he saw him moving, losing his twin once had been more then enough for him, he couldn't imagine doing it again, he nearly lost it the first time.
    As he jogged over he quickly went straight to his sibling, kneeling down in front he didn't bother saying much to start with other then to mutter some worried hello's to the two of them "Buddy you look like a patch work quilt" He firstly inspected Ikra's head before swiftly moving on to his leg, his concern seeming more like a parent to a child, "Your legs a mess dude, I'll sort it out in a bit, how's your head?"
    As he waited for Ikra to reply to him he let his hands drop his own chest heaving from the stress of the run upon his ribs, his skin ashen.
    Light eyes for the first time properly looked at the woman "Hey, you ok? You hurt?"

    She chuckled at him as he came back out of his daze. " Sure you were darling, just don't go to sleep on me yet ok. " She continued to watch the figure jog towards him and watched as Ikra tried to make out who it was. Seeing his brother seemed to give him a new burst of energy as the tone of his voice picked up. She smiled with joy for him at finding his brother and relief at having someone else to help care for Ikra. " Yeah you were right darling. " she smiled warmly as the figure approached.

    They were practically identical she noticed, only Ikra's brother had longer hair. She shuffled backward into the sand to give the two brothers some space to reconcile after the event. Seeing them together made her wonder about her own sisters. They wouldn't even know she was on this flight. They would see the crash on the news and have no clue that she was on aboard and if they did find out would they presume she was dead? She had to pull herself out of those thoughts as a tear ran down her cheek. She would find some way to get a message to her sisters once the rescuers arrived if she couldn't find a phone in the meantime.

    Realizing that Ikra's brother was addressing her, she wiped the tear and put on a brave face. " Oh I'll be fine. Just a few sore ribs. " She downplayed her injuries for now knowing full weel she had at least two to three broken ribs having done it as a child when she got flung from a horse. " I'm Gabrielle but call me Gabby. You're Liran right? " coughing as she struggled to speak. " Ikra.. has done nothing but talk about you. " She winced in pain as she shuffled closer again. She was not used to meeting people in just her bra but this was an extreme situation. " I wrapped his leg as best I could but my first aid is a little rusty. " She had never been to a first aids course but she had picked up a thing or two from nursing animals on the farm but nothing to point that would really help with an injury like Ikra's.

    "Probably as good as it looks" Ikra responded leaning back again, he knew Liran would take charge and deal with the situation, he always did when the shit hit the fan. For now Ikra wanted to rest and heal so he could contribute in some helpful way instead of utter mumbled phrazes he wasn't even sure made sense to anyone.
    He peeked down at his leg and attempted a shrug "Yeah Go nuts.. you ok though?" he looked at his brother, now coherent enough to know to at least look him over for any injury.


    He nodded as Ikra spoke to him he even managed a pretty broad smile in the face of things "Yeah man i'm fine, nothing that won't feel better in the morning" his eyes hadn't left the woman who he had now started to frown at his eyes moving down her body to look upon her ribs which were already bruising up heavily. "Sure you are Gabby, you look the picture of health" he responded after her introduction.
    He glanced to Ikra as she mentioned he had been speaking about her "Yeah sorry about him, he is a talker"

    He could smell her scent as a human one, it worried him more then Ikra's state, he was even willing to let his brother sleep though he would wake him often "Ik get some rest buddy I will set your leg once I looked at your friend"
    He looked back up from Gabrielle's injuries to look into her eyes they seemed sunken from the lack of oxygen flowing within her system.
    "Can you stand up so I can look at you?"

    She suddenly felt a little self conscious as Liran looked her up and down. Normally she was pretty confident but kneeling there in just a bra and a pencil skirt after a plane crash had shaken her. She tried to keep her smile though for fear if she didn't she may just break down completely. " Well, I think we have all had better days. " she said in regards to her appearance.

    She broke eye contact with Liran and looked past to Ikra again. He had certainly become more animated and focused since his brothers arrival. " Oh no don't apologize he's fine. " she began coughing again. " I was.... glad .... he was talking. " she spluttered. She started to think maybe her injuries were even more severe then she knew but she wanted to put it down to smoke inhalation.

    She blinked at Liran as he told Ikra to sleep while he tended to her. " Are you sure, I mean Ikra.... " she couldn't even finish her sentence this time before the coughing fit took hold and she started really struggling for breath. Deciding she truly needed help now, she slowly rose from the ground clutching her ribs. She suddenly felt very light headed and dizzy so she supported herself with an extended arm against a tree. Hopefully Liran would just take a quick look so she could sit back down soon.

    "Well lucky for you guys I have had worse" He looked again and Ikra and then he got up and onto his feet so he would be able to watch the way that Gabrielle moved and see just how bad her injuries were, he had become concerned about her breathing especially now that she had started to cough more, something he thought would only get worse, his thought proved itself as she started to move her cough increasing.
    "Don't worry about Ikra, he is tougher then he looks trust me" he had by now moved his hand out against her shoulder to steady her, he slowly started to force her to straighten out as much as she could. "Your not gunna like me much"
    He placed his hand on her ribs then his other, feeling along each one he pressed his hands with pressure to the sides forcing the ribs to shift away from her lungs and give her more room to breathe.
    Grabbing her shoulders again he steadied her expecting her to scream and maybe faint. "Sorry i'm sorry"
    He waited for any form of reaction his eyes switching between her and Ikra who had now fallen asleep.

    She stared at him unable to reply but wondering what on Earth could be worse then a plane crash. Breathing as deeply as she could without causing herself unmeasurable pain which wasn't very much at all, she just nodded. Of course she was going to worry about Ikra, he was in an awful state and she had tried so hard to get him off the plane and get him this far, she didn't want to give up on him.

    A worried expression took over as he said she wouldn't like him much. She tried to stay as straight and as still as possible while he ran his fingers along her ribs. " Jesus! " she exclaimed in a cry of pain as she clutched at the tree. She had never felt a pain like it and it made her even dizzier and made her want to vomit. After a moment her hands went to his shoulders too and leaned against him.

    The pain eased a little and slowly her breathing eased as more air filled her lungs. It was still quite sore to inhale and exhale but at least now the effort of breathing was benefiting somewhat. She lifted her head that had been hanging and tried to smile at him. " Thanks. " she said with a raspy voice. One hand stayed on his shoulder and the other went back to the tree as she used Liran for support to lower herself to the ground beside Ikra. She wrapped her hand around Ikra's wrist looking for some assurance that he was still with them. Maybe Liran thought that there was no hope for his brother and that's why he tended to her to her first. She hoped that wasn't the case as she let go after feeling a pulse.

    He kept his grip upon her steady and tight until he was sure one hundred percent that she was able to move alone that's when he loosened it but still helped her to sit down beside Ikra, she seemed to worry over his brother a bit more then he had ever seen anyone else other then himself, it actually gave him a little bit of comfort to see, especially as he soon planned on leaving them to find supplies.
    "Gabby he will be ok, I promise you he will, just you see, we will all be ok alright?" he needed her to stay calm so her breathing didn't worsen, he wouldn't be able to leave if she couldn't stay awake.
    "You just need to stay calm ok, I need you to stay calm" he had now knelt down before the two of them, he checked Ikra's head which had stopped bleeding now, then the leg which if he didn't set it soon would reform incorrectly.

    Once he had finished he looked Gabrielle straight in the eye. "Now Gabby I need to go back into the plane, I need to find supplies and some medical items if we are to make it past a couple of days alright?" he paused making sure to keep his words clear so she took them all in as he didn't know how long it would take "I need you to wake Ikra up every hour or so just to make sure alright? If he doesn't wake up just make noise I will hear you. Think you can do that?"

    It was a relief to have someone else there now to call the burden of worry for Ikra. His reassurances, although she felt like a juvenile were needed. Maybe it was just her desperate mind but she felt a connection with Ikra. They had gotten each other off that plane as well as being the last people that poor elderly man saw. She knew that Liran but especially Ikra would only understand what that was like and to her it felt like some kind of tragic bond.

    Lirans attempts at calming her were only infuriating her. She believed herself to be relatively calm given the situation and didn't need to be coddled over like a child. She just nodded but she hoped her annoyed look would tell him how she felt, wanting to conserve her breath.

    When Liran mentioned going back in the plane the blood from her face drained away. Her eyes at the smoking mess and flashes of the dead passengers crossed her vision. It made her shiver and sick and the last thing she wanted to do was go back in that nightmare but she knew they needed supplies. Then she looked at Liran with surprise. " Where are you going? Don't you think we should stick together? " Honestly she was terrified of Ikra dying on her watch and she was exhausted herself. She didn't know if she was capable of what he was asking of her. " I can try to go back to the plane. But I can hardly breathe in there. The smoke is thick. " she was genuine when she said she would venture back to the plane but she was hesitant especially of Liran was going to wander off again. She could pass out and then both her and Ikra would be doomed.

    He could see her irritation as it crossed her face but he showed no reaction to it at all, he didn't care if he seemed over controlling he did what he thought was needed in the situation. His head bowed as her reaction changed to him saying he would leave, creasing his brow he shook his head, he wouldn't let her or Ikra go back into the plane not while they were all in the states they were in.
    "No, it's fine" he muttered quietly as he thought of an alternative, "You can sleep first, sleep for a bit until you feel a bit more rested and then I will go once you wake, that ok?" he looked back up to her waiting an answer, though while he waited he pulled his belt off.
    "I will sort Ikra's leg out with what we have here, it will be ok"
