1.10 Letting Go

Posted by on September 6, 2013

We really are starting to feel more like a family.

Rosalyn continues to worry me. Last night, she convinced herself there was a zombie underneath her bed trying to grab her and pull her under.

The effects were… dramatic. I was up with her half the night, trying to calm her down.

Timi’s still spending most of his daylight hours on the water.

Through some combination of lucky salvage and his usual superheroic ingenuity, he’s put together a mask and breathing system, and he’s been exploring the local reefs.

And me, well, I started wondering if I was really doing us any favors to keep Jesse at a distance. Who am I protecting? Me? Him? We don’t know how long we’ll be on this island. Maybe forever. We’re all we have.

We don’t talk about where we came from. I’m not sure why, but none of us do.

Jesse’s never hidden his interest in me. It feels good to be appreciated, but it’s also frightening.

And I knew that if I started to let him in, I wouldn’t be able to slow down.

After the first time, I just held on to him and cried. I was afraid he’d think it was something he’d done, but he seemed to understand. I guess it’s not such a big mystery in a refugee camp.

I miss Terrence so much, but I guess I’m ready to let go.

For some reason, EA only lets you dive in historic gear after you have level 10 in scuba. Let’s pretend that Timi doesn’t look like he just blew his savings in a dive shop.

Outtake: Damn photobombs.

    Yeah! It's from Island Paradise, the same expansion that added the boats. And wait till you see what ELSE came with that expansion! I'm glad I'm not buying any other video games at the moment b/c EA is really adept at getting my money.

    While you're diving, you can look at pretty undersea scenery and find messages in a bottle (hilarious) and catch sea life with your hands that turns out to be worth obscene amounts of money. Oh yeah, and you can explore under water caves, which are like catacombs but with different story updates.

    Hahahaha, the photobomb is HILARIOUS 😀

    Apart from that: when I read the title of the chapter, I was a little worried as to what would happen now. Obviously, I now know. 😉 I can totally understand what she is thinking while being with Jesse. Will we ever find out what happened to Terrence? Excitement!

    It's … it's … it's the ICE CREAM TRUCK! Dun Dun DUUUN! I hate that creepy thing. It's funny that it would turn up on an uninhabited island … clearly, there's no bad time for ice cream.

    What a bittersweet moment for Echo and Jesse. She'll always love Terrence, but eventually she had to move on. And, Jesse is a nice guy. I bet the kids will be happy that the closest things they have to parents have finally taken that next step. I'm wondering if their unprotected woohoo will result in a pregnancy?

    Island ice cream truck!

    I love the diving! That looks like so much fun, I'm going to have to try it sometime. If I ever get to play again.

    I'm glad that Echo decided to let Jesse in (so to speak). No matter what the future brings, people need comfort and companionship.
