Its so exciting working on this once again! Had a bit of a slow start as the characters had been left at random points during April NaNo. I cannot really waste any words here so I have to drive towards the objective this time, which is to set up the climax.
In the novel, Will confronts Frank in the aftermath of the search in the jungle.
A small excerpt:
Will stared at the man in quiet determination. The flicker of anger that had driven him all afternoon had gotten subdued suddenly, leaving him utterly and absolutely exhausted. There were a lot of questions and accusations that he could bring up in that moment, but he knew it wouldn't matter. It wouldn't matter because he didn't care anymore, he couldn't. So he raised his eyes once again and asked the only question that mattered.
"What do you want Frank? What is your endgame here?"
He smiled softly, calmly; as if he was dealing with an oblivious child, ignorant of the ways of the world. "I want to find out the truth, Will. I want to understand. I mean, aren't you curious at all about our situation here? Don't you want to know the reason behind this all? Behind us being brought here like this?"
Will sighed, "I just want to get out. I don't care beyond that."
Again, that same infuriating, understanding smile. "Well, then, you gave up hope a long time ago. And I don't think the island had anything to do with that."
