[GBU] The Most Dangerous Island || Round 04 - 2“DUMB4SS3S.”
B3RT overlooked the blue hole from above, merely watching as Remien and Samuel fell. He slowly zipped closer, observing the ensuing splash and struggle to surface. The human did not move. Not even his base instincts inclined him to push. He was curled in a ball, and sinking.

Sam was tough. Rem was confident he would pull them out of this jam. Even so, when a new light shone in the form of a Dewgong come to the rescue, he felt better. He relaxed, and allowed himself to slip away. . .

“They didn’t cancel after all…” She was smiling, but hesitant.
“You’re still on about that?” Rem replied, laying a brief hand on her shoulder as he walked past.
