Itchy and hung over, the passengers and crew were awaken by a bright morning sun that was relentless in its torture to the poor castaways.
Maxim, always aware of his responsibilities as leader pulls tude dog to his side as he makes an announcement.
Maxim: We are left with one quart of water for everybody, and this is the most direct danger to our survival, so I am issuing the following orders.
First, tude, you go and get the still, fill it with ocean water-
tude dog: Cap, that would ruin the copper lining of-
Maxim: TUDE!, WE NEED WATER!
tude dog: But-
Maxim: NO BUTS TUDE!
Hibakusha and Genosse, wood, plenty of wood! twiw, you help them with some of the bigger pieces and cutting.
ES and headrock, go with me. We will spread out, look for a source of water.
headrock: But the boars!!??
Engineer Soldier: Hey, I don't have to take that from you!
Maxim: ES, he was talking about the wild pigs.
Engineer Soldier: Oh, I thought he was talking about European socialists.
Maxim: OK, tude, Genosse, Hibakusha and twiw, get going, ES and headrock, hold on while I get the gun.
Hibakusha: A GUN!
Maxim: It is only for protection, and we might have to protect ourselves from any other critters that may be on the island. So please, lets get on with out duties.
So tude dog prepares the still as wood is gathered.
Maxim with his two scouts set out across the island in search of fresh water-when.
headrock: ooooh, this is so ghastly (he bends over and dry heaves as there was no breakfast.)
Engineer Soldier: (wide eyed and in disbelief) h o w c a n t h I s (he faints)
Meanwhile, even as harden as he is, it is difficult for Maxim to assess the situation he sees.
A body is hung by the neck from a cocoanut tree. In the background is a small boat, and sitting on the beach are two men.
Maxim walks up and challenges the two men. One man about in his thirties, the other a teenager.
While holding his rifle level, calls to the two men.
Maxim: Who are you?
The older of the men calls,
"hey mate, I am called Brian Foley and this here is a chap who calls himself CrackerJap
"Maxim: Who is hanging in the trees and how did they get there?
Brian Foley: Most unfortunate, the worse case of suicide I ever seen.
Maxim: Don't be cute with me, who is he?
CrackerJap: He called himself Proud Muslim, a person you could not reason with. He had a mutual suicide pack with the guy over there, who stoned himself to death. He was called Warrior Monk.
Maxim ordered the two live survivors to go aside while he inspected the boat which was apparently driven ashore by last nights storm. He saw that it was called SS Drudge Report, and below decks he found an man bound and gaged.
Relesing the gag the man gasped,,,,dry mouthed, barely audible he tried to talk.
As he removed the rest of the binds-
Maxim: What's your name buddy?
in a whisper, "cwintraining"
Isn't this great? Three more castaways!
And mystery deaths
